After my long search for that pitch black, well pigmented and smooth matte black eyeshadow, I finally came back to one my favorite brands Kryolan and bingo, I did find the best black eyeshadow that too the most affordable one – Kryolan Black Eye Shadow Compact Matt.
Packaging – It comes in a transparent plastic round case and the shade name is mentioned at the back of the packaging. The plastic lid is a bit low quality and it keeps coming off every now and then. I wish they focus more on good quality packaging.
Shade: It is a very dark black and perfect for smokey eyes and also to set your kajal.
Texture & formula: The Eye shadow has a very smooth texture and does not go patchy like MAC Carbon. It is super easy to blend and does not have a stiff texture. It is also not very powdery like other matte eyeshadows. I have mine for 2 years now and still the texture is the same, hasn’t dried up or become stiff.
Pigmentation – Kryolan Black Eye Shadow Compact Matt is highly pigmented and just a touch is required.
Staying Power – I use it often to set my kajal and it keeps the kajal in place for the whole day. On the lids also, I have not found it fading or creasing. For me, Kryolan Black Eye Shadow Compact Matt is the perfect black eyeshadow .
Kryolan Black Eye Shadow Compact Matt is priced at Rs. 300 available at Kryolan stores or online.
There are not many good options for a matte black eyeshadow in India and I am glad Kryolan made the best one that is super affordable, has great pigmentation, stays long and has awesome texture.
Kryolan is known for making good quality products at affordable rates and this black eyeshadow is truly an unsung hero that everyone should try. The packaging is a bummer and you have to be careful about how you handle it.
Highly recommend Kryolan Black Eye Shadow Compact Matt. My must have eyeshadow in the kit.
