Hi lovely ladies!!!
Kryolan blushes!!! I feel these are Godsent. They are one of the best blushes available for such an affordable price. I was so impressed by the previous blush, that I couldn’t stop myself from adding a few more blushes to my vanity. I feel every lady can find her kind of blush color from the wide range of colors that Kryolan offers. I picked up quite a few shades and today I will be reviewing a blush that isn’t orange – Kryolan dry rouge blusher in the shade Lake.
Price: Rs.350 for 2.5g
Blusher 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.
My take on Kryolan Lake Dry Rouge Blusher:
Kryolan blusher comes in a gray cardboard box that hold all the details like ingredients, price and expiry date pertaining to the product. The box opens to reveal the gray blush pan with a transparent lid with the Kryolan mask symbol and hologram authenticity sticker stuck on it. The transparent lid enables you to spot the shade easily in your makeup stash. The lid closes securely with a click mechanism; making it travel-friendly. It doesn’t come with an in-built mirror or applicator. The shade name is mentioned on the bottom of the pan along with the expiry date, so you need not retain the outer carton box to check on the expiry date. The packaging on the whole looks very dull and boring.
Lake is a gorgeous hot pink shade with a hint of purple in it. The shade is totally matte and has no shimmer or sheen. While it does look overwhelmingly bright, you can use a very light hand to apply the blush to both lighter and darker skin. This shade looks extremely frightening in the pan, but it actually looks amazing on all skin tones and will work nicely all year long.
Texture of this blusher is extremely soft and smooth. Despite being a powder blush -it feels really buttery and creamy. You will notice very little fall out on swirling a brush in the pan. This powder blush is finely milled, which makes the application super easy.
This blusher in the shade Lake is intensely pigmented. One swipe renders rich color to the cheeks, so you have to be extra careful, not to pick up too much color with the brush. You need to use a light hand while using this blush or else you will land up looking like a clown. In a single swipe, the color just sits on the skin like a bold streak of pink but with a bit of blending, it gives a nice flush of color to the cheeks.
This is certainly not the layering-kind blush but you can use a light hand to diffuse the color on cheeks or use a stippling blush if you are not confident and are scared of the color.
Kryolan blusher in the shade Lake lasts for a good 5-6 hours with no base underneath and for an amazing 7-8 hours with some base underneath your blush. So when you use this blush- you just need not worry about any touch-ups. It fades away gradually and evenly and doesn’t settle down looking horrid and patchy by the end of the day.
