I am reviewing one of my favourite foundations for you today. I am a big fan of Kryolan products and have discovered many beautiful gems from the brand. I have been trying out Kryolan Ultra Foundation for sometime now and here are my thoughts –
About Kryolan Ultra Foundation
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 particulary 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.
Texture – Foundation has an amazing dreamy, soft, texture that I have still not found in any foundation. It blends so beautifully. I carry it with me everywhere and use it with my fingers and blend. It is neither sticky nor completely matte. Any flat or stippling brush can also be used.
Coverage – It provides medium coverage but not heavy. This is the only foundation that feels so light on the skin. If you want a dewy finish, you can skip powder. I would not recommend using a matte powder on top as it will not justify the purpose of this foundation. I use a translucent powder and it helps maintain the texture without making it flat matte.
Staying Power – I have worn Kryolan Ultra Foundation both during the day and night. I would say in the evenings, it makes the skin glow beautifully. During the day, it kind of melts a little bit in hot weather but in Chennai, any foundation you wear, that happens. The staying power is decent and again depends on the place ( AC environment or not)
My Experience with the product:
After turning 30, my skin has gone through a lot of changes. It used to be combination-oily but right now it is normal and sometimes dry. I have changed my entire skin care and makeup routine. I was on the look out for a light weight foundation wit decent coverage and as usual my search ended in Kryolan.
Being in Chennai is a big advantage for Kryolan lovers like me and I got to try it like 2-3 times before purchase.
I ended up buying the shade OB3 which has a yellow one but still a little warm for my skin. OB2 had a pink tone so I obviously had to skip it off. OB3 is slightly warm but after few minutes it easily adapts to my skintone and looks natural.
Kryolan Ultra Foundation is priced at Rs 1200 and available at Kryolan online & offline store
I highly recommend Kryolan Ultra Foundation if you are looking out for a light weight, medium coverage cream foundation.
