I am going to review Eye Shadow Compact Matt in the shade “Almond” from Kryolan. It is not only a single colour eyeshdow but it is a perfect shade for contouring for very light skin tones. This shade is available in some Palettes as well as sold individually. You can also buy it as a refill separately to fill up a used up shade in your eyeshadow palette. Read on to know more about it here.
Price and Quantity:
INR 400 (2.5 grams)
Product life: Recommended use is within 24 months after opening. I have been using this shade since long now. These shadows last long than their mentioned expiry dates ensuring quality and longevity.
Eye Shadow Matt is a creamy pressed powder for dry application. The exceptional formulation enhances a gentle application and produces a pleasantly soft feeling on the skin. The micronized pigments offer the possibility of applying this preparation not only with fashionable transparency, but also with vivid color emphasis. Excellent durability on the eyelids makes this Eye Shadow exceptionally well-suited for professional application. For intensive colors and enhanced durability apply Kryolan Eye Shadow Primer before. ECARF certified.

My Experience with Kryolan Eye Shadow Compact Matt Almond:
The shade “Almond” is a dark yellow shade that is powdery in texture. This is a wonderful shade from Kryolan and the reason I found it an important item to review is that this shade in particular can be put to multiple uses. Apart from using as an eyeshadow, the best use of this shade is to use it for contouring on lighter skin tones. It gives a very natural contour for fair people.
For medium to dark skin tone, this shade acts as a colour corrector and gives an instant pop to the eyes. For lighter skin tones, this shade is great for using on the crease. Although the product is meant for dry use, I have used it multiple times with a wet brush which helps to easily build the product.
Stay time of this product is nearly 5 hours.
Pros of Kryolan Eye Shadow Compact Matt Almond:
- Fine texture.
- Matte finish.
- Colour correction.
- Can be used for contouring.
- Long-lasting and durable.
- Easy to carry.
Cons of Kryolan Eye Shadow Compact Matt Almond:
- Availability(Although Kryolan website has begun to offer online shopping).
- Unattractive packaging.
IMBB Rating: 4.5/5
