Kryolan Derma Color Camouflage Cream & Waterproof Fixing Powder

A little while ago I ordered these goodies from Kryolan (which came with the free eyeliner that I already reviewed). I've been very keen to try these goodies because I'd only heard good things. The two are supposed to be used together, when you set the concealer with the powder it's supposed to be waterproof. Because the products are made for each other I'm reviewing them together.

I got the palette in Nr. 3. It was all a bit of a guess because I was ordering online but this is the one I went with. I wanted one where there'd be both contouring and highlighting colours, along with a good base colour or two. Also, the Derma Color Camouflage Cream is available in singles, as well as other palettes. This is a palette with mini's of the colours, but I got it so I could try a little bit of everything.

First off, this palette is super cute! It's pretty sturdy and it closes well. It's very small, probably smaller than you expect it to be. However, literally every review tells you that you only need the tiniest amount of product.

These things are cream concealers, they'll give you a very high coverage. If you want to thin them out, you can easily mix them with some moisturizer, or just blend them a lot. The texture allows you to really work them into the skin as well, so that's good. I have to add that cream concealers are not the easiest way to get a job done. There's certainly a learning curve to them, and if you're a beginner I'd recommend getting a liquid concealer instead. However, once you figure out how to use these concealers, they're amazing. I always prefer creams because they work well with my skin type and they give me a dewy finish. My favourite way of using them has been with my fingers, because you really have to warm up the product to make it more blendable. My Real Techniques sponge hasn't been of much help with blending these, I don't know that that's about. I do like the Real Techniques Deluxe Crease Brush with it though, it's really good to get it around the nose area. I could ramble on forever, but photographic evidence probably says more. 

On the left you see my bare (but moisturized) face, on the right side I'm wearing the concealer. I used it to spot conceal all over my face, brighten my under eye area and I contoured my cheeks a little. I'm not wearing foundation and it isn't necessary, either.

As you can see my bare face has a lot of redness (and skin issues, recently..). This also means that my face doesn't match the rest of my body. All my foundations are always more on the yellow side, because that way it matches the rest of my body too. The concealer makes my skin look so airbrushes, doesn't it! I like that my skin still looks like skin, but better. It gives me this dewy finish and it just makes everything look better, but still natural. 

After applying the concealer, I applied my other creams and liquids so I could set it with powder. I used a liquid bronzer, creme blush and liquid illuminator on top. Then I set everything with the waterproof Fixing Powder. Also, my eyebrows appeared out of nowhere (or I forgot that I was doing my skin first..)

Very natural, isn't it? I like that you can still see my freckles a little bit. The powder is very finely mild and just easy to use in general. It does have a smell, which is something that I can't exactly describe other than 'old makeup smell'. It doesn't bother me a lot, but it's something to mention. The only thing I dislike about the powder is the packaging because the lid broke. I mean, it still works but there's a crack in the lid. Below is a picture of the finished look, just to add a little #fotd

Now, I've covered pretty much everything about these products. They look amazing on the skin and I basically have no complaints, other than a broken lid. There's only one question left, is it waterproof?  Does it really stay on forever? Especially for that I went out partying the other day, and lucky for me it also rained on my bike ride home!

Seriously, my contouring game has never been more on point at almost 4am! There's still a few pro's that I haven't discussed, such as:

  • There's 120 different shades
  • There's also a fixing spray that's supposed to make everything smudge proof, and adds SPF25
  • One full-sized single concealer only costs €4,90
  • Everything is ECARF certified, making it allergy friendly
  • They're best when applied with your fingers, so you won't need expensive brushes
  • Kryolan products are cruelty free - unfortunately they aren't vegan (a lot of Kryolan products are) but these contain beeswax
So far I'm very, very impressed with these products. In the future I definitely want to try more of their products, since they're all very reasonably priced for professional products. I can safely say that I can call these two products together a Holy Grail.
