Astro Pink

Kaleidos Astro Pink Futurism Eyeshadow Palette ($24.00 for 0.25 oz.) included six eyeshadows with four matte shades and two shimmer shades. The mattes were smooth and velvety without losing their pigmentation, while the shimmers were pigmented and easy to pick up with a dry brush.

Ingredients

Cosmos

Cosmos is an inky, ultra-rich black base with flecks of silver sparkle over a matte finish. As one might expect, those silvery sparkles didn’t really bind as much with the base so they had minimal impact in person.

  • Opaque color coverage
  • Smooth, velvety consistency, slight fallout from sparkle
  • Applied and blended out beautifully
  • Long-wearing (8 hours on average)

Formula Overview

The eyeshadow formula is supposed to have a “rich, velvety texture” that is “soft and creamy yet highly adhesive” so that there is “no creasing.” It is touted as being “ultra-pigmented” with “minimal fallout” that “blends effortlessly.”

Kaleidos’ matte eyeshadows are their standout; they are velvety, smooth, and blendable with high coverage and are incredibly easy to use–they absolutely live up to “minimal fallout” and have that “soft and creamy yet highly adhesive” aspect going on.

The shimmer shades were smooth, pigmented, and denser without being overly thick or too heavy, so they picked up well with dry brushes and applied evenly to bare skin, they just didn’t have quite the level of wow-factor for me compared to their matte formula. There was also more variance in the shimmer shades so not every shade was fantastic, whereas the matte shades performed more consistently in comparison.

This eyeshadow formula lived up to its rave reviews within the indie community, though. On me, they typically lasted around eight hours before fading visibly with some of the deeper mattes staying on a little longer.
