This is a fantastic eyeshadow base! is extremely effective in protecting eyemakeup from wearing off and smudging, I can now use creamy eyeshadow or apply pigments wet without worrying about them creasing!!! love it!
Concealers -Kryolan - dermacolor light Cover Stick

a very good product indeed. Looks like a lipstick with a very sleek silver packaging!! Coverage is medium-opaque and it's ment to be used on problematic areas (blemishes, rosacea etc) where you need extra concealing! It can be a bit hard to blend since the consistancy is solid-creamy but it wont transfer or move easily when powdered upon! i also sometimes use it sparingly on undereye dark circles when i need extra coverage, as a browbone and cheekbone highlighter, as an eyeshadow base and even dab a bit on my waterline to brighten up the eye! such a multi-use product!
Liquid -Kryolan - HD micro foundation-MATIFYING LIQUID

not at all happy with this one. This is part of Kryolan's HD series for tv/photography work. Coverage is sheer-it goes on almost like a water based mousse. it provides a slight tone adjustment and nothing more. people with mature skin or almost non demanding one (in terms of concealing/hiding imperfections) will love this one as the finish it provides is almost invisible (no-foundation look). But Kryolan claims it is transfer-proof and longwearing which i personally haven't seen much yet and for the price (57 euros) i probably wont buy this one again!
Liquid -Kryolan - HD micro foundation-SMOOTHING FLUID

hmmmm.... This is part of Kryolan's HD range for tv/photography work. Coverage is sheer to medium with a velvet finish. It goes on smoothly and wont enhance skin imperfections (enlarged pores, fine lines wrinkles etc) or give the "made up face" look. Suitable for all skin types. All in all it is a fantastic product to have if your skin isnt too demanding in terms of concealing, looks very good on mature skin but still i find it's pretty expensive (57 euros !) for the coverage it gives.
Liquid -Kryolan - HD micro foundation on air Spray

An excellent product for body makeup. coverage is medium to buildable and once spayed on skin you have to blend really quickly bc once dry it doesnt move anymore! i use it on legs, arms and on the back - excellent for bridal work or when you just need a bit of summer colour on your body !
this line consists of finely milled shimmer glitter that provide extraordinary shine! they are very finelly milled so they adhere very good on skin (either applied a bit wet or dabbed over a creamy base) and can be applied on their own or over eyeshadows to add shine or turn any matt eyeshadow into a shimmery one! can also be used on body parts (clevage, back etc) wherever you want to add a shiny fine glitter effect. They come in a variety of colours that range from crystal white (noble) to light green and golden copper!! Love love love them!!!!
Excellent high shimmery loose eyeshadows of top quality-adhere like a dream on eyes and stay a very very long time! pigmentation is just fantastic and the package has a hole in the center to pick up as much product as you want-unlike mac pigment packages where i always have to be super careful not to drop the can and loose half (or all) of the product! excellent colour selection from neutrals (light golden, champagne), midtone pinks, bright oranges to light and dark lila (lila3) ones! love them all!!!!
Very rich in formula and pigmentation for a lipgloss, it provides a high shine to lips and stays put for a long time. I only wish there were more colours for that range. I love the clear one( crystal rose) and the almost bloody red (catwalk) is just the perfect red lipgloss to top off a red lipstick or lippencil !!
hmmmm not very impressed with this one. It is a very light foundation, goes on almost like water that gives a slight tone adjustment to the skin and has absolutely no coverage. it has a hing of shimmer in it so it leaves a very cute shine on the face and would best suit people with mature skin that need a very subtle color adjustment. It has SPF and for that it doesnt photograph nicely
this is an excellent cream foundation. although emollient it is not too oily which makes it suitable even for slightly oilier skin. It gives a very natural no-foundation look when powdered over and wont enhance any skin imperfections (enlarged pores fine lines etc). Coverage depends on application technique from sheer (with a wet sponge) to medium- full. It comes in a variety of shades including a very light whitish pink (TV WHITE) and a light yello (YH) perfect for highlighting or adjusting foundation tone. You can also purchase them in a pallette form with refills. All in all a very good product.
as a whole i am not at all happy with Kryolan mascaras. watery consistancy awful brush. Will make lashes dull and flat and can smudge very easily. Almost useless for anything. this one is no exception-plus the waterproof effect is hardly noticable!
a very handy makeup tool tha every mua should have. it looks like a marker and the tip is soaked with a oily makeup remover-perfect for removing and fixing smudges!
these kajal pencils have a super smooth texture and are intended to be used as eyeshadow bases. As far as this goes they perform greatly, eyeshadows adhere beautifully on them. they are not suited for plain eyeliner uses (around the eyes and in the waterline) as they will most definitely smudge and run. they come in 3 shedes -black, brown and bone colour and and it's best to use a primer underneath.
Excellent powder especially for HD tv work. it is probably the most finelly milled powder there is -you can tell just by opening the cap : powder literally flies into the air againts gravity!!!! this is a finishing powder (not a very strong setting or oil control one) suitable for setting foundation on dry skin or as a final dust of powder on already made up faces. Mature skin will love the effect it provides as it optically tones down fine lines and wrinkles and is perfect for those who seek the no-powder look.
Foundations -Kryolan - Shimmering Event Foundation

i wouldn't exactly call this product a "foundation" it is more of a highlighter / multi use shimmer product. I have it in silver and i mix it in with my foundation to sheer it up and give it a nice glow or dab it over certain parts (cheesbones, clevage etcs) just where i want to add shine! it is super pigmented and you only need a tiny bit of it to get a very shiny look! love it for bridal work!
