Just when I thought that my neutral eyeshadow palette was “complete”, Kjaer Weis launched a new eyeshadow shade called Grace. In the photos of the makeup looks created by Kristin Kjaer Weis using Grace, it looked like a color I was missing–the perfect matte, light, neutral taupe–so I bought a refill for my magnetic palette. I am so very glad that I did, because it is the most versatile eyeshadow color that I currently own, and I am genuinely infatuated with it.
The finish is described as semi-matte, and is completely free of shimmer. The texture is soft and easy to work with. I even apply it with fingers, because it blends easily and is not too powdery; in fact, I don’t have any issues with flaking and fall-outs. It is also not prone to crease, (double points for that because I have hooded eyes), and it looks great all day.
The color is great mainly because it’s so versatile and if you have a skin tone from fair to a medium you will get a lot of use from it. It is quite pigmented, so I bet that it would even work well as a base lid color for darker skin tones. Kjaer Weis describes the color as a light mocha shade. It’s one of those neutral taupe colors that can be used on the lid, in the crease, and I absolutely love it to line my lower lash line. The interesting part is that I hate lining my lower lash line because I find it very aging and unflattering on myself, so I almost never do it. However I tried it with this color, and I love it. It gives me that very soft brown smoky eye, Alex Steinherr style, that is perfect for both daytime and evening.
Like all Kjaer Weis makeup, it’s a relatively expensive product, but I am very happy with it and will definitely repurchase it. You can find more posts about Kjaer Weis makeup here.
