Today’s review is going to be on the Kryolan Dual Finish Powder. Being blessed with oily skin I prefer powder foundations to any other type of foundation. One because it is easy to apply and second it gives the most natural finish to the skin. I wear powder foundations almost 95% of the time as it basically feels like nothing on the skin. So I was on the lookout for a new powder foundation and I came across this. Let’s see how the Kryolan Dual Finish Powder fared out!

How Did Kryolan Dual Finish Powder Work For Me?

The Kryolan Dual Finish Powder comes in a silver packaging that has pressed powder in the pan and a sponge applicator under the pan. Also the lid houses a mirror that comes in quite handy for on the go touch ups. The product alone weighs a good 10g which is pretty awesome for the price you pay. This product reminded me of my holy grail MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation that’s why I checked it out in the first place. I got the closest looking match to my skin tone but in vain as it is much darker and more pink toned so when I tried it on my face it looked ashy and left a whitish cast which isn’t that forgiving. Still I gave it a go for review purposes but I would probably be giving this away to a friend or family to use.

Kryolan is known to have a good shade selection close to MAC but I was so bummed after trying it out. The actual product, although it is a powder, is super creamy and blends like a dream. The coverage can be built from light to medium and it blurs out the imperfections quite nicely and t definitely is a dupe to the MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus Foundation. I have used this powder only when it is dry so I cannot compare on how it will apply when it is used with a damp sponge. I didn’t want to ruin the product as I won’t be keeping it. Also I don’t like the idea of wetting powders for makeup as I like my BB creams or light foundations for that purpose so if you are anywhere near medium plus to deep complexioned you can give this powder a try.
