Kjaer Weis Wisdom Eyeshadow (Modesty Brown made me do it)

Posted by Lipglossiping On February - 2 - 2012

I’ve had a ‘thing’ for this Kjaer Weis eyeshadow in Wisdom ever since reading Jane’s post about it over a year ago.  I already knew that the brand produced quality items (albeit at a price) and a few months ago I decided that I could stand it no longer and took the plunge.

Wisdom is a taupe with a difference… a subtle difference for sure, but it has a beautiful, ghostly sheen that intrigues me and catches the light at certain angles.  To most, it would mean nothing but to taupe fans, it’s enough to give it that ‘get in my basket’ factor.  The cool taupe is nicely, though not densely pigmented and blends like a dream, lasting through the day with or without primer.

You can see the ethereal sheen in the swatch above, it’s like a ghostly flash of pretty that really gives it a softer look once on the eye.  Yeah, I like this one a lot.  Refills are priced at £13 each, if you want it in the original Zamac packaging – you’ll be looking at parting with £32 for the pleasure.

Kjaer Weis used to be available in the UK from SpaceNK but I’ve just been on their website and everything appears to be out of stock.  Never a good sign.  Anyone know what’s happening with the brand’s availability in the UK?

    I bet you a dollar SpaceNK have stopped stocking it. I suspected that would happen – it was only in one bricks & mortar location in London, on a tiny stand (next to the Lime Crime).

    I’m hoping that someone like Being Content pick it up, because I would still really like to try it. This looks gorgeous.

[...] Get the full post on Charlotte’s shiny new Kjaer Weis Eyeshadow in “Wisdom”.  You can also go to the full review by clicking on her gorgeous photo.  The products, similar to Clarins in this trend, are created from botanical formulations and natural chemistry thus promoting “green beauty”.  If you go to the Kjaer Weis website you’re bound to be awestruck like I was because of the simplicity and smart design.

  5. Beautiful! I love those lust have things, there is nothing nicer than finally deciding to splurge and then eagerly awaiting delivery, its magic!

  6. Oh, you captured it beautifully in that swatch! I still love Wisdom and I’m really sad to hear they’ve disappeared from SpaceNK. As Grace says, I hope someone like Being Content will pick it up, organic makeup can so easily disappoint but the texture of their eyeshadows is excellent. Thank you so much for the mention, I laughed out loud when I saw the title :D
