Here is another post of me sharing about one of my most favorite foundations/pressed powder. Its the KRYOLAN CAKE MAKEUP FOUNDATION. Kryolan is one of my favorite beauty brand on which i can invest my beauty/makeup thingies. They have some amazing products, which most of us do not actually know and which actually work well. The only thing is that they do not anywhere match our so called ‘Indian Skintone’, but i must say sometimes i feel soo lucky that ‘Ohh god!!! Finally there’s a shade for my skin tone in Kryolan…’.
KRYOLAN CAKE MAKEUP CLAIMS:
- Cake Make-up is a color intensive make-up in the form of a compact powder which is moist-applied. Cake Make-up is specially designed for application to the neck, décolleté and body.
- The preparation-specific base has an hydrophobic effect and also resists transpiration.
- Cake Make-up is applied, thin and evenly, by a fine-pored, moist make-up sponge. The applied make-up dries quickly and should then be buffed with a dry towel.
- Cake Make-up is smudge-proof and does not require powdering. Easily removed with AquaCleans, or with soap and water.
PRICE: INR 700
QUANTITY: 35g or 1.2 oz(the quantity has actually got reduced from 40g with the same price tag.)
SHADE: I am in the shade FS-38 (i seriously donno what that FS stands for?). This shade, i guess, is meant for the Indian skin tones.
The KRYOLAN CAKE MAKEUP comes in a grey colored round plastic tub with a see-through twisted cap. The packaging is not so attracting but thats the way all the Kryolan products are. Inside is a huge pan with the product in. This will last me for ever even if i use it daily.
This Cake Makeup can be used both in wet and dry forms. Looks exactly like a pressed powder/compact powder, but its completely a super dry base foundation and not at all powdery. I literally have to scrape the foundation out to use it as a compact. The texture of this cake makeup is little grainy-it has small little white grains/beads kind of.
The Cake Makeup is super pigmented which gives a Medium-Full coverage. While using wet for the first time, i experienced a bit uneven application(maybe i need to practice on how to make it work for me). And in dry form, i use it by itself(no foundation no nothing) and OMG!! it gives an almost full coverage feel to me. I mostly use it in dry format only. And yes I have to scrape the product out and then use a sponge/brush to apply as a pressed powder. DOes this sound gross??! I mean like…Does anyone do something like this? But that’s the way i use it.
This foundation blends in smoothly and easily. Works great for my oily skin and gives a perfect matte finish. The staying power of this foundation is about 5-6 hours. Overall, I am so so sooo impressed with this KRYOLAN CAKE MAKEUP FOUNDATION.
