I have been suffering with bad pigmentation around my eyes for some health issues, I always thought trying any drugstore concealer is just a waste of money as it just leaves a grey cast on the stubborn maroon and purplish dark circles. So, I always preferred getting concealers from Mac. Recently, I came across Kryolan and I wanted to try their concealer as they had a huge range of shade selections which makes it a great choice for duskier and dark skin tone complexions.
Price: Rs.350 for 4gms
Kryolan Claims: Dermacolor Camouflage Creme is an especially highly pigmented make-up which is designed to correct and cover skin disfigurements, discolorations and tattoos. Dermacolor Camouflage Creme is especially suitable for face and neck. With proper use of the Dermacolor Camouflage System skin abnormalities can be easily corrected. Ones Dermacolor Camouflage Creme is fixed using Fixing Powder and Fixing Spray from Dermacolor it will be waterproof and protects the skin against damaging UV radiation. Dermacolor Camouflage could last even under extreme conditions like swimming, heat and physical strain. Dermacolor Camouflage Creme is available in an extensive range of shades and those are intermixable which gives the make-up a natural appearance when applied correctly. ECARF certified.
Packaging: The Kryolan derma color camouflage creme comes in a small white tub with a turquoise screw type cap along with the name and all the details printed on it. The tub type packaging can be unhygienic so I recommend using a cotton swab to take out the product for application.
Shade: I got the shade DFD which is a very warm wheatish color with some hints of yellow undertones. The shade would suit medium to dusky skin tones. The range has 75 shades and this shade was quite close to my nc43.5 skin tone. But, as I have severely dark under eye circles, it tends to look slightly grey if I directly apply it. Hence, I also bought an orange corrector to neutralize the pigmentation before applying this concealer. However, for the days I am blessed with lesser dark circles this concealer works perfectly even without a corrector.
Coverage: The concealer provides really good coverage without feeling heavy on the skin. It provides full coverage. It conceals under eye area, acne scars, blemishes and dark spots well.
Formula: The formula of the concealer is thick and creamy. It provides great pigmentation with a very small amount of product. As the formula is thick, it does tend to stick to dry patches. So you should remember to moisturize your under eye area and also blend the concealer really well to avoid settling into fine lines and a cakey finish.
Staying power: The concealer stays on my combination skin for good 4 to 5 hours easily after which it starts fading.
Final word: Kryolan Derma Color Camouflage Creme is a good concealer for the affordable price. It provides full coverage which hides all kinds of darkness and scars. The coverage is full but doesn’t look unnatural or cakey if you have blended it well. I wished it was easier to work and also stayed for a longer amount of time. Apart from these two cons, it is a good product to try!
