Hello you all beautiful people!
How are you all? This is my first IMBB post and I am really excited to join you guys in the reviews! Till now, I have just been just addicted to reading all the posts and discussions that follows, but now, I am sure I will be hooked to writing reviews as well 😀 Also, I want to congratulate IMBB guys for doing such a fantastic job! Now, let’s start with the review, shall we?
Today, I am reviewing Kryolan Professional Lipstick LC 131. I have tried many products from Kryolan and so far I have liked them all, so when I picked up this little coral lipstick, I was really excited!
Lipstick with a long-proven formulation, including Vitamin E to stimulate the skin’s repair mechanism. Lipstick Classic produces a matte impression and is known for its good durability. ECARF certified.
250 INR for 4 gm.

It’s a long list of ingredients, but they have mentioned every single ingredient and that is quite impressive. Don’t we all frown when just the key ingredients are mentioned?
It comes in a silver case with Kryolan hologram on it. Nothing fancy, but a very sturdy packaging. Quite travel friendly as well.
Now, this is one packaging feature which you will hate And love! Confused?? Let me explain… See this pic?
Here the shade is Lipstick Classic 131. Yes, the shades are numbered, and it’s difficult to find a particular shade from a stack of Kryolan lipsticks especially when you are in a hurry! : dislike: Now the good part; the expiry date is mentioned on the product , so even a lazy bum like me who doesn’t clear her vanity box every now and then , won’t end up using an expired product! 😀
How I Came Across Kryolan:
I had been noticing this brand in the vanity case of a friend of mine who is a makeup artist. She introduced me to this brand which is used worldwide for makeup of actors in films and television. I have been a Kryolan fan since then!
Here are the swatches in different lights; first one is the day light and second one I took in the late evening.
My Experience with Kryolan Professional Lipstick – Classic 131:
I have a very mixed reaction towards this lipstick. On one hand, while I love love love the shade, its texture is not as lovely as other Kryolan lipsticks I have used. It’s creamy in its application but powder matte on the lips. Besides, you have a cup of coffee and….. poof! it is almost gone. : grrr x-(
It is a good lipstick for its price, but better options are available in the same classic range. Because of all the awesome Kryolan products I have tried, my expectations were too high with this one, but like always, this Kryolan product is also ECARF certified and is safe for people with allergies like me and didn’t break me out like some of the well-known brands I have used! (Double Thumbs up!!!)
Pros of Kryolan Professional Lipstick – Classic 131:
- Wide range of shades.
- Pigmentation is super awesome!
- Creamy and glides very smoothly.
- Doesn’t settle in the fine lines on fading (if your lips are well hydrated, that is :P)
- Doesn’t bleed at all!
- Staying power is decent without meals.
- Expiry date is mentioned right on the product.
- Its ECARF certified, that means it’s safe for sensitive skin beauties!
Cons of Kryolan Professional Lipstick – Classic 131:
- It fades away unevenly and is quite transferable.
- Looks a little chalky if applied without a lip gloss.
- It smells weird! Though the smell goes away, it’s a minus!
- Availability is an issue.
3.5/5 (-1.5 for non availability and being transferable).
Out of the range of Kryolan, this one is not a superstar 🙁 Though I am a huge fan of Kryolan lipsticks, I didn’t like it much, except for the shade. It’s very pretty neon coral and to me looks very similar to MAC Vegas Volt. For coral lovers, this might be a good addition to your coral collection!
Will I Repurchase Kryolan Professional Lipstick – Classic 131?
This shade? No! But I will definitely try other range of lipsticks as Kryolan has never been a bummer for me!
That’s all ladies! See you soon, Take care and happie Monsoon 🙂
