Kjaer Weis Eye Shadow in Wisdom | Swatches & Review

Purchased (Affiliate Links)

Kjaer Weis Eye Shadow in Wisdom is an ultra-luxe eyeshadow that can either be purchased in a gorgeous metal compact or in a refill pan, and while I was tempted to purchase the gorgeous compact I opted instead to buy the refill since I have depotted most of my shadows. Additionally, purchasing the refill saves a lot of money.

Filled with organic ingredients, instead of multi-syllabic chemicals, this luxurious  cruelty-free eyeshadow boasts a very finely milled texture that results in a silky-smooth powder that glides across the skin effortlessly and deposits color evenly, and that offers buildable coverage. Wisdom is described as a "mix of gray, brown and purple"and Kjael Weis suggests that this "taupe is a quietly complex hue that really brings out all eye colors." It really is a gorgeous and complex taupe that is a  is especially lovely when it captures the natural sunlight. I get all-day wear without creasing, but I do not have oily eyelids, and I seldom use a primer. If you have oily eyelids you will probably want to use a primer.

About Kirsten Kjaer Weis,

From growing up on a farm in Denmark to attending the prestigious Christian Chauveau School of Artistic Makeup, Kirsten Kjaer Weis worked around the world for some of the most renowned fashion magazines like Vogue, Elle and Marie Claire. As an in-demand makeup artist, Kirsten found that people were sacrificing the health of their skin by using irritating, synthetic makeup. The natural products, however, were not up to par in performance, and the luxury of the beauty experience was lost. Kirsten used her experience growing up in a natural environment and her knowledge of beauty to pursue uncharted territory in the industry, creating Kjaer Weis - a pioneer in organic, luxury beauty.
According to Kjaer Weis,

Luxurious, organic ingredients help enhance your natural beauty: Bamboo is rich in natural silicone which is extremely important in the synthesis of collagen in the connective tissue, Honeysuckle extract is antibacterial, while Gardenia Florida Fruit Extract is a powerful antioxidant that works as a natural preservative.
Wisdom: Mix of gray, brown and purple, this taupe is a quietly complex hue that really brings out all eye colors. Great for adding richness and depth to a smokey eye or for accentuating a natural look.
Directions: For best results, apply with a brush. For deeper definition, mist the brush slightly with water, intensifying the application of the shadow. To create the effect of a soft eyeliner, dampen an eyeliner brush with water and apply along the lash line.
Ingredients: Talc*, Octyldodecyl Stearoyl Stearate, Bambusa Arundinacea Stem Powder, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax, Tocopheryl Acetate, Gardenia Florida Fruit Extract, Lonicera Caprifolium(Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Lonicera Japonica(Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Zinc Stearate.
