Hello beautiful people,
I am so happy to be reviewing one of my most trusted brands when it comes to makeup. Yes, it’s Kryolan. Kryolan is a very popular German brand which was launched in 1945. Yeah!! It’s that old!! Kryolan is a professional makeup brand and its products are majorly used in films and the theatre industry. I came across Kryolan when I was taking a course in Professional Makeup and since then I have been in love. Anyways, the product I am reviewing today is a cream eye shadow from Kryolan in the shade Gold.

My Experience with Kryolan Metallique Cream Eyeshadow – Gold
While undertaking my Professional Makeup Course, we were taught that a Gold cream shadow is must have in a makeup vanity as that alone can create so many different looks when used with different techniques. The eye shadow that my teacher/guru/makeup artist swears by is this baby from Kryolan.
This Gold eye shadow comes in a typical silver coloured Kryolan one pan container. The eye shadows are available like the Inglot Freedom System pans which need to be put into an empty pan available separately. This is the most perfect shade of Gold for all skin tones. This colour is a pure gold shimmery colour with olive undertones. I have tried a ton of gold cream shadows from high end brands like the Shiseido Gold cream eye shadow and the gold shade in the Makeup Forever Flash Palette, but trust me ladies, nothing can even come close to the gorgeousness of the Kryolan Gold Shadow, let alone being better than this one.
Also the pigmentation of this gold shade is to die for. I barely tap my finger once into the shadow pan and that quantity is enough for me to do one eye. As if all the above goodness was less, the texture of the Kryolan Gold Eye Shadow is overwhelming!! It is the creamiest eye shadow I have come across in my life so far and is super blendable. I do have oily eye lids and this baby stays put on my eye lids for a good 7-8 hours without a primer!! This itself acts like a primer and primes the eye lids along with the golden glowy shimmery colour. 2-in-1 product!!
I don’t think I need to say anything else about this absolutely amazing product. I am in love with this eye shadow. If you have a Kryolan store nearby, please go to the store and swatch this. I am sure you will bring this baby home. My camera does not do justice to the actual shade. Just multiply the beauty of this shade in the swatch by 100 and that’s how gorgeous it really is!!

Recommendation: Ladies, if you find this baby in a Kryolan store, please do grab it. I urge you to try it out, you can thank me later! So many different looks can be created with this baby. We as Indians do need a “bling bling” in our wedding functions and festivals. This one product is going to do that for you. I am saying this a zillion times in my review, but this surely is the best gold shade of eye shadow ever!!
Score: 4.9/5 (0.1 marks deducted for availability issues, otherwise the product is awesome)
