I was in Knightsbridge recently and finally had a chance to have a look at the Kjaer Weis line. The only place I've found it so far is the SpaceNK concession in Harvey Nichols - it's not even stocked in the Hans Crescent branch.
The display unit is tiny and easy to miss - it's next to the Lime Crime lipsticks on a side counter. For an expensive brand it isn't very well presented in the shop in my opinion (the products sold in the admittedly lovely pots are £30+ each).
The pots themselves are beautiful - they feel weighty but not overly heavy and the combination of the silver and the white enamel is understated and lovely. As I wrote above, these are expensive at £32 to £38 for an individual item, but refills are available at £13 to £18.
These are small pressed powder eyeshadows - smaller than MAC, about the same size as Becca eyeshadows. Nicely pigmented, but then at this price they'd better be. The colours are:
- Cloud Nine - creamy pale vanilla
- Wisdom - pale to mid taupe, very very subtle scattered sparkles in it
- Earthy Calm - chocolate brown
- Onyx - charcoal
The texture of the cream blushes is very good; these do seem to melt into the skin. I'd say these are the standout product in the line, although I'd like a little more variety of colours; a warm red would be a good addition for a start. The wide, flat surface makes it easy to pick up product.
- Suntouched - warm peach
- Desired glow - neutral caramel tan (I could just about wear this, but a paler cooler skintone would probably struggle with it.)
- Blossoming - rosy pink
These are quite sheer, but not overly glossy.
- Blissful - pale baby pink (too pale for me)
- Dream State - beige peach (also too light for me)
- Sensuous Plum - muted plum, sheer so quite wearable, not too grey/purple
- Passionate - sheer warm red
