Today’s review would be about another Kay Beauty product. Today I will be sharing my experience with Kay Beauty Metallic Eyeshadow Stick Bare Metal.
The metallic eyeshadow sticks from Kay Beauty are priced at INR 599 for 1.6 gm of the product (BUY HERE). These can easily be bought at a 15%-20% discount.
Kay Beauty Metal Show Metallic Eyeshadow Stick will stun everyone with every blink. It comes in 12 bold shades that are trendy and eye-catching. With its beautiful metallic finish and unique creme to powder formula, this gives an intense color payoff and is 100% waterproof & smudge-proof. Wear it alone for the subtle sheen or layer it on top of Kay Beauty Matte Time Eyeshadow Stick, to create multiple eye looks. Enriched with super nourishing ceramide & macadamia oil, this eyeshadow stick will come in handy for accentuate night glam or a soft daytime look!

Not mentioned anywhere on the website or on the packaging.
The packaging of the Eyeshadow stick is the same as their Matteinee Matte Lipsticks. It has an outer box with 2 color packaging. The color on the outer box denotes the color of the product inside the box. The actual shadow stick also comes wrapped in a plastic wrap which contains a few details about the product.
Unlike the Matte Lipstick stick these eyeshadow sticks are non retractable and they need to be sharpened in order to use the product. These too have Kay Beauty logo printed all over the stick which makes it look pretty. The lid is tight enough to make the stick safe to travel with.
My Experience with Kay Beauty Metallic Eyeshadow Stick Bare Metal:
Color: The shade Bare Metal is a pretty bronzy eyeshadow which is good for everyday use. It is neither too light nor too intense and can work well with majority of makeup looks and outfits. This is one of the lightest shades form the collection and looks absolutely beautiful on the eyes.
Pigmentation: The eyeshadow formula is highly pigmented. A single swipe is sufficient to give a fully opaque color. Blending with a brush does affect the pigmentation a little, but it does help in blending the color with any other crease color.
Texture: Being a creamy formula, it is very soft to apply. It is actually so soft that high temperature (the one we experience in Delhi) can make the product melt. I broke the tip of my shadow stick as soon as I started applying the color on my lid. It is easy to sharp though.
Staying Power: As the product works well with any eye primer as well as powder shadow, it does have a good staying power. The shadow stays put on the lids without creasing for a good 4-5 hours.
I am not too happy with the softness of the formulation, but apart from that the color is beautiful, very creamy, easy to blend and does have a good staying power. All of this comes in an affordable price range, which makes it a good purchase.
This is the only metallic crayon that I bought with some other Kay Beauty products. I would love to try the shades Jaded glow and High Born in the future!
