Kryolan TV Paint Stick FS 28 Review, Swatch, FOTD
Rs. 1000 ( used to be 800 earlier)
Kryolan products do not look very classy or high class but the quality they deliver has always been amazing. Kryolan is a very old brand and very famous abroad. In India, they are very famous for Television and Bridal. I have seen many television actors having this stick in the vanity box.
FS 28 is a yellow toned color that would match women who fall under medium skin NC40-NC42 skintonez. I find it a little dark for me now but I make it up with a lighter powder.
It has a very smooth and creamy texture. It blends beautifully but on dry areas, I suggest you use a sponge. I have seen bridal makeup artists applying it with a brush or fingers first and then blend it out with a damp sponge for even finish. If not blended properly it can look cakey since it is a heavy product and would give you full coverage. It can hide all your flaws be it acne or dark circles. I have slight pigmentation around my mouth and that is one of the main reasons I use base makeup. The Tv Paint Stick completely takes care of this issue and makes my skin flawless. If over used, it enhances open pores so make sure you go little by little. If you have sensitive skin like mine, apply an oil free moisturizer and a primer before using this. Do not even dare to wear it on hot days especially outside. The product melts in extreme hot conditions. I use it only for special days when I would be photographed as it is a heavy product and if not removed completely, definitely breaks me out the next day. It is not hygienic to use the stick directly on the face so use a spatula to scoop out some on a mixing plate. You can also save a lot that way and learn how to mix shades.
I never photoshop my pictures to remove acne scars so what you are seeing below is actually true.:)
If you have combination-oily skin like mine, it would stay for about 4-5 hours under AC environment. Dry skin would love it more.
Pros Of Kryolan TV Paint Stick:
1. Good quantity
3. Huge variety of shades
4. Photographs well
5. Full coverage
Cons of Kryolan TV Paint Stick:
1. Looks patchy if not blended properly
2. Not good for daily use as it is heavy
3. Availability as Kryolan is not available online
I personally love Kryolan TV Paint Stick but I have kept it only special functions like weddings. It is a fantastic product for bridal makeup and must go into your kitty if you are a to be bride. For 1000 bucks, you get a lot and you are sure to find the exact match as well. Learn to blend it well and this will become your favorite foundation.
