FOTD: Pale Stuff (2)

I dug right into the Kjaer Weis eyeshadows, to see how they performed. I was not disappointed…

Kjaer Weis Eyeshadow in Charmed (lids)
Kjaer Weis Eyeshadow in Magnetic (crease)

My Sustainable Journey: Kjaer Weis Neutrals

Kjaer Weis has introduced a couple of new ‘neutrals’ to the eyeshadow lineup. Meet ‘Charmed’ and ‘Magnetic.’

Like the other Kjaer Weis Eyeshadows, these come in ‘refillable’ metal containers. Charmed is a neutral beige, and Magnetic is a brown-ochre shimmer.

I like them… but they ARE  on the expensive side… especially considering that they’re neutrals and quite dupeable. But they are very silky and pigmented and blend very nicely together without going muddy… which is a huge plus. You can find out more about Kjaer Weis Eyeshadows HERE.

My Sustainable Journey: Kjaer Weis (Blue Wonder)

I placed another order at Spirit Beauty Lounge (love that place!). This time I got the new Kjaer Weis Eyeshadow in Blue Wonder:

It’s a softer blue than any of the colors I have, but it’s still very pigmented:

It also comes with this cute little cleansing cloth, to keep the case nice and shiny…

Overall, I’m happy. I still think the price point is steep for the color selection, but I do like the performance of these shadows. And I have become quite the fan of Spirit Beauty Lounge. I love the customer service, and I love the ‘sustainable’ message of the company.
