Today, I am going to review my very first lipstick from Kryolan. I have quite a few of Kryolan products and none has disappointed me yet. Kryolan is a makeup company that specializes in manufacturing makeup, especially for TV/Movie industry. Their TV Paint Stick Foundation is the best one I have ever come across and photographs beautifully! Kryolan as a brand has absolutely amazing products at very affordable prices! The lipsticks start from Rs. 250 and are available in three finishes. There are more than 100 shades available!
Kryolan lipsticks have three finishes – Classic, Fashion and Pearl. The lipstick I am reviewing today belongs to their “Classic” range.
Lipstick with a long-proven formulation, including Vitamin E to stimulate the skin’s repair mechanism. Lipstick Classic produces a matt impression and is known for its good durability. This Lip Rouge is available in a wide range of more than 48 shades.
Kryolan lipstick costs 250 INR for 4 gm of the product.
It comes in a silver plastic packaging with the Kryolan logo on it. It has a simple and sturdy packaging similar to all Kryolan products. I find it quite sturdy and have not had any issues yet.
The shade number is mentioned at the bottom of the lipstick. This kind of packaging makes it difficult to choose a lipstick out of a vanity if you have too many of these. Also, remembering the shade number is a tedious job, I so wish they start giving names to their lipsticks.
Swatches in different lights
My Experience with Kryolan Professional Lipstick:
The shade LC 106 is a gorgeous pink/plum shade that goes very well with our Indian skin tones. The texture of the lipstick is buttery smooth and just glides on the lips. Its quite moisturizing as well and at the same time does not feel heavy on the lips. The texture of the lipstick is very creamy and hence comes out opaque. The pigmentation is amazing, one swipe is more than enough to get that color on to your lips. As its quite opaque, the intensity can be built to as desired.
Staying power is decent and not very long lasting. It stays on my lips for 4+ hours with meals in between after which it leaves a soft pink tint on the lips which actually looks very flattering 🙂 The lipstick does not bleed or settle in the fine lines. It definitely has some moisturizing properties as it does not dry out my lips.
The only problem I find is the weird artificial smell when I first apply the lipstick. I just hate the smell, it smells like loads of chemicals. Though the smell disappears after 2 minutes, but still I find it a turn off!
The shade is very similar to MAC Plumful, but a bit more on the brighter side.
This is how it looks on me, I have taken the picture after one hour of applying the lipstick.
Pros of Kryolan Professional Lipstick:
- Gorgeous plum color which will suit our Indian skin tones very well.
- Highly pigmented.
- Creamy and opaque, so one swipe is enough.
- Decent staying power.
- Quite affordable.
- Huge range of shades.
Cons of Kryolan Professional Lipstick:
- The chemical smell is definitely a turn off.
- Availability is a problem as I have heard that Kryolan is currently available only in Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai and Hyderabad.
250 INR for 4 gm.
Do I Recommend Kryolan Professional Lipstick?
Absolutely! The color is drop-dead gorgeous and immediately brightens up the face. Plus these are really affordable, hence will not burn a hole in your pocket!
Hope this review was helpful, until tomorrow, take care and stay beautiful 🙂
