Kryolan Ultra Foundation Review and Swatches
By Contributor: Humaira
New year is here and after all that “what to wear, omg! I dnt have anything, heels, handbags” jazz..comes our loyal makeup makes us look so pretty that all the above things aren’t necessary (ok they are!) You know they say “chota packet bada dhamaka”, its the same case with my favourite Kryolan Ultra Foundation which I will review and swatch today. It comes in both refills and full size. Its mostly used by the professional MUAs because it photographs beautifully. Note it down brides to be. Infact most of the bridal makeup artist either use this or MAC. It covers acne scars, redness or any other skin issues.
Kryolan Claims: Ultra Foundation is a cream foundation specially formulated for the most demanding make-up expectations. As a result of its excellent covering quality, Ultra Foundation is also effective as a corrective make-up. Transparent application of Ultra Foundation is also suitable for photographic work. Its matt finish provides models with a naturally attractive appearance. The Ultra Foundation formulation contains advanced ingredients that are recognised for particularly good skin compatibility. This formulation contains no mineral oil, to assure that the skin readily absorbs the make-up. This foundation is available in a wide range of more than 70 shades.
Krylon ultra foundation comes in a small round pan, the cover is transparent and you can see the thick set foundation. Krylon staying true to its makeup variety gives you 12 different shades to choose from. It provides a decent medium to almost full coverage. It covers all the scars, redness, pigmentation, acne in a jiffy. You don’t need a concealer with it.
It can be your go to foundation on bad skin days, though it won’t help as a corrector for dark circles. For that you need an orange colour corrector. The texture is thick and creamy.
The thick creamy foundation can be little tricky to blend and you have to make sure you do that to avoid patchiness. To blend it make sure you use a good foundation brush in a downwards motion. Also it needs to be set with powder mostly on your t-zone, as it tends to get shiny after 2 3 hours maintaining the coverage. Wearing good for 5-6 hours on me, I think the small pan can do wonders with the price it comes at.
