Today my review is on a makeup product from Kryolan brand. It is Derma Color Camouflage System – Fixing Powder.
In my last post I had written about Kryolan Concealer – if you have not read, please read it here. Kryolan DermaColour Camouflage Crème.
I purchased this fixing powder along with Kryolan concealer as the SA was very much insisting me to try this. To be honest, I become alert when any SA pushes me to buy a particular product, because I don’t believe in tags like – mam please buy this cream with that lotion – only then the effect will last, or mam please use this under that cream or this over that foundation only then the beauty of the product comes out – and all other stuffs. I feel any product has to have its own qualities and benefits on the skin. If it has to be complimented or layered with a particular product to deliver the desired results then I hesitate purchasing such products.
Any way coming back to Kryolan Fixing powder – I am glad that I followed the SA and purchased this. It is worth every penny and I never regretted buying this.
Company Claims: For weatherproof fixing and matting of Dermacolor Camouflage crème.
Shade: P3 suits me – but available in various shades to suit all the skin tones.
Availability: These are available in online stores but I purchased it from a beauty store in Bangalore and as far as I know that is the only store in Bangalore which retails Kryolan product.
My Thoughts: First thing, this fixing powder is meant to fix Camouflage crème i.e. their concealer and I also purchased it for the very reason. The shade I use is P3. Initially I used to just dab a small amount of cream under my eyes (that is where I apply Kryolan concealer). But later on, as “baking” thing was doing rounds in the beauty world – I just tried baking my under eye area with this powder and voila – I was surprised.
It literally transformed my under eye area. It indeed is a very good fixing powder which helps in fixing the concealer without any creasing and tugging of under eye skin.
Later I tried it using all over my face to fix my BB cream / foundation and it does a great job. It doesn’t look cakey at all and gives a matt finish.
How I Use: I apply my base makeup (BB cream or Foundation and concealer under my eyes) and apply a good amount of powder under the eye area. Leave it for 1-2 minutes (till then I apply kohl or do eye makeup – if at all I am doing) then wipe off the excess powder with the sponge. Then with the same sponge I spread a tiny amount of powder all over my face. TADA – full face make up done!
Lasting power of this powder is also great. It lasts for almost 7-8 hours in normal weather condition. I have dry skin and I moisturize my skin before applying any make up and hence I have not come across any dry patches whilst using this.
Does what it claims – it fixes the base makeup.
Great for Oily Skin beauties.
If you have extreme dry skin then ensure that you have moisturized your skin very well.
No Puff provided.
The packaging is not travel friendly. It has 2 lids – one with holes from where we need to take the powder and another one is the closing lid – every time I open the powder box excess powder gets accumulated on the secondary lid (with holes) and spills all over as soon as I open.
Will I repurchase again: Yes – this is my HG fixing powder but I keep trying new powders just to find out if any other fixing powder over performs this one (Greedy Me J)
