New from Kjaer Weis! - Review: Precious Cream Blush + Angelic Eye Shadow

Kjaer Weis's two new spring releases are all about ushering in the warmer weather with soft, romantic pastels! Precious is a pale, peach-toned cream blush with the luxuriously silky texture that sets this brand apart from the rest. Angelic is a rosy pink eye shadow that will compliment a variety of skin tones. With their compacts, these products retail at $56 USD for 0.123 oz. (3.5 g) and $45 USD for 0.043 oz. (1.2 g), respectively. However, Cream Blush Refills can be purchased for the reduced price of $32 USD and Eye Shadow Refills for $27 USD.

Finish

Precious

This blush is exceptionally lush and creamy! Comparable to the texture of Embrace (check out my review here), Precious quite literally feels like silk! This stunning, pale coral blush melts flawlessly into the skin with almost no effort. Like all of the Kjaer Weis blushes that I have tested, Precious is dewy when first applied and maintains its fresh, luminous finish throughout hours of wear.

Angelic

With a beautiful matte finish, Angelic imparts a flirty wash of pink on the lids. Although rather sheer, this shadow layers easily due to its smooth, rich texture. Additionally, because it is so satiny, it blends beautifully!

Application

Precious

The pigmentation of this blush is stunning! One swipe and you are left with pure, pastel perfection! Because of its intensity and opacity, I like to build up color by applying 2-3 thin layers. While I like to use my fingers to apply this blush, I find that it also blends flawlessly with a sponge or a soft stippling brush. Furthermore, although it wears beautifully on its own, I do find that the vividness of this sophisticated, creamsicle hue lasts a bit longer when set with a powder. There is a subtle vanilla scent that is quite pleasing upon application too!

Angelic

This shadow is subtle, yet layers with such ease! I like to pack this petal pink shadow on with a small, flat brush and then blend throughout my crease with a fluffy brush. It will crease a little throughout the day if I don't prime my lids. Therefore, I like to add a touch of Vapour Beauty's Stratus Luminous Instant Skin Perfector to eliminate creasing and enhance the saturation of the color. This pastel hue also provides a bright, eye-opening effect when applied to the lower lash-line with a pencil brush.

Wrap-Up

I am such a fan of Kjaer Weis and these new releases are the perfect additions to her ultra glamorous line of goodies! Precious melts flawlessly into the skin and gives the cheeks a glowing flush of color that is gorgeous for spring and summer. With a luxuriously creamy texture, this pale coral blush blends evenly onto the skin for a natural, luminous finish. It is also richly pigmented and wears well throughout the day with or without being set with a powder. Angelic is subtle, but layers beautifully. This romantic pink shadow has a slight hint of purple and a luxurious, satiny feel. Although it will crease slightly, a bit of primer keeps this shadow flawlessly smooth and vivid.

The quality of Precious and Angelic is exceptional! I know that these products are prohibitively expensive, but I guarantee that you will love them and be reaching for them everyday.

Have you tried any Kjaer Weis products?
