Absolute favourite!I am so happy I bought this on a whim, because it quickly turned into my favourite foundation. I have very pretty skin and it works really well for me. It blends out really nicely, and have an awesome shade range!
Amazing productI have worked with kryolan for 8 years now and it is the most amazing product!!
Worth persevering to get the right shadeOkay.
Apologies in advance for the rather long review, but I really hope it helps anyone who's heard of this amazing foundation and cannot for the life of them, work out which FREAKIN shade is supposed to work for them.
Tip: Don't use findnation. Speak directly to the girls here at Adore Beauty.
I used findnation to find my 'perfect' shade in Kryolan, only to be referred to a foundation that was at least three shades darker.
For the record, I'm light-medium skin with neutral undertones.
I then tried 'live chat' here on AB and was recommended a shade that looked okay on screen, but when it arrived, it was at least two shades too dark and had yellow undertones.
So, I returned the stick and explained (again) my skin colour, undertones and the shade I used in 'the ordinary' (2.0N) and was recommended the shade, "DO" in the Kryolan stick.
Although the foundation itself is quite heavy, you can dial the coverage down by mixing in some tinted moisturiser / BB cream. It takes a little getting used to, but by the second or third attempt, muscle memory kicked in :)
I suggest dotting it on your face, then dipping your brush or sponge into some tinted moisturiser / BB cream (if you'd prefer a less mask-y look), then blending over the face.
It provides a gorgeous finish and lasts the day.
Well worth being patient enough to trial a couple of shades, before you nail the perfect shade for you.
I will definitely re-purchase. But I don't think it will be for some time, because a little goes a long way - which means the cost per wear is a beauty junky's dream x
good coverageI personally use this product when needing a longer lasting, full coverage foundation. It gives a little bit of a mask feel, so a tip i can recommend is to mix it with a more liquified foundation for your base, by applying this directly on main areas of face then using a damp beauty blender to blend in the other product.
AmazingAmazing foundation that looks so beautiful on the skin and so easy to apply! Love this so much
Always greatLove this foundation so much
I used to have oily skin and was great with a good set
After being on roaccutane I now have dry skin and it’s still amazing
Such great coverage
Amazing coverageLove this stick. It has amazing coverage and easily buildable. Great option if you need to get ready in a rush. Has an oily texture so if you have oily skin like myself make sure you use a good primer and setting powder. So easy to take with you for touch ups during the day if needed
Long lastingI've never used a Kyolan product before, so bought this on a whim. Being fairly pale, i was unsure which colour to get but found it was very easy to alter the shade with powder. I applied this foundation at 3pm and at 1am it was still perfectly in place. I usually get very oily with thick foundations (such as Estee Lauder double wear) but found this Kryolan stick didn't even get shiny. I would recommend this product but would need better colour charts as the colour on the computer is a few shades different to what i received.
Been using for yearsI have been using this stuff for years I’m talking almost 10 years. I absolutely love it for going out and I have it in 4 different shades to suit my tan level. This has by far the best coverage I’ve ever come across and the smallest amount goes a LONG LONG way. I have oily combination skin and this stuff doesn’t make me breakout. I do feel for myself it’s to heavy to wear every single day. But by far the best for photos and what not
Amazing coverageI love this foundation, I use a foundation brush to apply and it totally covers my acne scarring and gives me an even complexion. I follow with the translucent powder to set and it lasts all day.
give it a go!Not a huge fan of foundation sticks but this one is actually quite nice and blends well
My absolute favourite foundation!I’m in love with this foundation it really covers everything and stays on all day a little goes a long way mine has lasted me for ages!
Great if looking for full coverageFantastic foundation, lasts so long as a little bit goes a long way. I go through liquid foundations in a few months and this lasted me a good 6-9 months as you really don’t need much of it. It’s definitely full coverage and long lasting if used with a good quality primer - I use benefit porefessional primer and it lasts all day. It can be cakey but if used with kryolan makeup blend it works so well at thinning it out without affecting the full coverage finish. Definitely recommend
AH-MAZ-INGThis foundation is so full coverage, it lasts SO long like probably more then a year (depends how much you use it). It’s very blendable, and the finish is beautiful. Perfect for combo skin :)
High Performance FoundationHave been using Kryolan TV Paint stick for several years. It’s honestly one of the best foundations on the market for my skin needs. I suffer from Rosacea (the one with the pimples) and I’ve found that many foundations, regardless of the the price, just can’t cover the redness.
This foundation comes in a stick and honestly lasts forever! It’s creamy and leaves the skin glowing. Yes, it does get oily but if you use a good translucent powder to bake your makeup, I think it suits every skin type. (I am extremely dry and a oily T zone) You can use a little and get light coverage or build it up for a heavy coverage foundation. I find that I get a better application with a damp brush.
My only concern with this foundation is the colour chart..it’s extremely off..hoping that Kryolan put out a more accurate one.
I have many shades but mainly use NB & FS45 for my base and then N1 for contouring.
My go to foundationI have been using this foundation for 10 years and I just love it. I wear fake tan and I find the OB1/OB2 match perfectly to my tan depending on how dark I am I can mix the two shades or use the lighter or darker shade. Wears well, full coverage and blends well. Love it
Amazing if you love full coverageThis product is super full coverage and feels really nice. It sits really well on my skin but is kind of easy to put too much on and it becomes quite Casey. If you love full coverage then this is for you!
High coverage and long lastingThis is a super high coverage, no fuss foundation that's easy to apply and makes no messes. I personally love that it's a stick foundation as it makes it incredibly easy to use. A little goes a long way as it is very full coverage.
Full coverageFull coverage cream foundation with a dewy finish. Perfect for most skin types although it can seperate sometimes. Long lasting.
It's just too easy to over-do itUnfortunately I have used too much of the foundation stick before instead of applying lightly
Great coverageI love this foundation. It is easy to apply, has great coverage and stays put.
Love it!Absolute must have for me! I wear this everyday and it doesn’t break me out at all, doesn’t feel heavy or thick on the skin, I find this blends best with a beauty sponge, always have a great makeup day when this is on! Xox
Lack of shadesBe prepared to buy two sticks to create your perfect match because the shades and undertones of this product are limited. I purchased F45 and 406 (I'm shade NW30).
A little bit goes a long way, but make sure you begin with a well primed base. I used this on my friend for her wedding and she looked flawless in her photos
amazingI think people under estimate this product you can use it everyday if you use a tiny bit it's better then any foundation blending it with a damp sponge tho it looks soo good
Good coverage and shade rangeThis foundation offers the perfect coverage and foundation shade for me! I love how full coverage it is and how it stays on your face all day when set with powder. Very easy to use, it's a 10/10 from me.
Love itI've been using and recommending this product waaaaaay before it was called kryolan, as a beauty therapist and trusted female I have converted handfuls and handfuls of fellow females to this product and never have any of them nor I looked back.
perfect color shadeThe color is the perfect color shade i needed.I was chatting on line so we can match up what i was using before perfect match.I will be alwsys buying my kryolan paint stick from Adore Beauty..Postage was fast and received in 3 working days..Thank you
Best coverageWas introduced to this by a friend that’s a professional dancer and uses it on stage and I wanted a foundation I could use that wouldn’t move had great coverage and doesn’t go cakey or make my skin look dry , and this ticks all the boxes
Undecided?I was looking for a foundation that would give me bang for my buck and offer a good coverage. I think the product will last a long time as you only need a small amount as it is highly pigmented BUT I did find that the product did start to separate after a few hours. I did the find product a little oily and thick but it does provide full coverage. It may cause congestion with continued everyday use and I would not advise this to be your go to daily foundation for that reason. I recommend applying product with a beauty blender as it left streaks when applied with a brush (probably cause its an oily product).
Love it!The more I use this product, the more I love it.
Prior to this I was using the RCMA pallet and while I found that slightly easier to apply and of course more natural looking, I find it moved on the face a lot.
I have dehydrated skin so when I use this product, I cleanse and apply Embryolisse Lait Creme underneath, then I warm the stick either on my hand or with a hair dryer, dot it on my face and buff it in so that it melts into my skin. I set it with a touch of RCMA No Color Powder.
I find this technique gives me a more natural look and a good base for contour and highlight.
Overall I’m very happy and I can tell the stick will last me an extremely long time. I might also try cutting it with RCMA thinner and see what happens.
The reason I gave 4 stars is due to the lack of information on the shades. There’s no indication of which shades are cool vs warm, the swatches do not match the product in real life whatsoever. Luckily the shade I purchased is a close enough match to get away with, even if it is a touch too yellow for me. In future I will purchase directly from a Kryolan store.
The Best!The best foundation/ concealer.. i use this one in ivory and a darker colour and mix them together to get my perfect colour..and go more ivory for concealer.. it is make up artist professional and i would recommend it to anyone.
Amazing!I use this daily, it is the most natural looking full coverage foundation I've ever tried. It gives me a perfected look, and looks amazing in photos.
It does take time to apply, with a brush and a sponge, it's not a slap it on kind of product. I have very sensitive skin and it doesn't irritate me at all, it does have an old lady fragrance to it but doesn't cause any bother, as it fades quickly.
Good coverage, doesn't cause breakoutsI am pale with pink undertone and the NB was perfect. Good coverage, doesn't cause breakouts
very good covergefull coverage and stayed on my skin well my skin can get oily.Natural finishI got ob2 it was slightly too dark on my light skin ill buy a shade lighter next time.Especially good for nights out.
Amazing!!I always come back to this foundation. It's in rotation with a couple of classics.
It's so versatile. I thin it out with moisturizer or primer if I want light coverage and I build it up when I need that full face! You need to powder it, it's not a foundation I ever just slap on and leave the house with. The Kryolan powder works really well, it's also huge.
It never cakes, or splits even though its thick. I've got combination skin. It will transfer when you rub on something if you don't bake it though, but not to the point where it looks really patchy.
Amazing coverageIt has amazing coverage. You only need the smallest amount. It does settle into my smile and frown lines though. I do find it transfers and doesn’t fully “set” even with powder. By the end of the day I do look a bit oily on the t zone.
I would recommend this as an event makeup not day to day and will continue to experiment to improve the overall performance
Very full coverage.I originally bought this foundation for a drag queen party and I was not disappointed. It is super full coverage, easy to cleans and lasts all night. While it is too full coverage for me for everyday wear I can see this becoming an event wearing base. It sits nice on my dry/combination skin without looking cakey, but beware this is not for people who are after a natural look.
Incredible Buildable FoundationThis foundation is definitely a medium to full coverage foundation but is easily buildable and I found it great at covering any red patches and pimples on my skin.
Full coverageI am a religious purchaser of this product. I have a section on my face that has dark pigmentation from when I had burns and this foundation I swear by. It is full coverage and leaves your skin looking amazing
The BEST foundation stick!I have used quite a few foundation sticks, most are quite thick and hard to blend. This one is a game changer! Whilst it is a full coverage foundation it glides over the skin so smoothly. I purchased the shade OB to test in my kit (comparable to NC25) and will be purchasing more ASAP!
Very full coverage but can be greasyThis is a very full coverage foundation stick. Although the formula is quite thick it does strangely still have a very natural looking finish and shows up really well in photos (even flash photography). However, this doesn’t last too long on me as I have oily skin. This is probably better suited to those with dry skin. I’m 43 with oily to combination skin.
Fantastic ProductThis is a great product. I have very sensitive skin and had been using a well known brand available at the supermarket that was causing a lot of issues with my skin. I use a third of the amount of foundation when using this product. It does not dry out my skin or irritate it. I have had a number of positive comments since using this product. I ordered online and received it the next day, even though I live in Qld.
ImpressiveVery impressed with the TV Paintstick. I did a colour match with Findation and it is perfect. I am pretty fair with pink undertones and was matched with NB. I am 43 with a reasonable amount of pigmentation and fine lines and this has covered everything well without being cakey. The formula is very lightweight, but totally buildable. I "draw" it on my face, then blend with a beauty blender, and if I want a bit more coverage somewhere I out some on the blender and apply. The colour is amazingly natural. I top with the Kryolan Translucent powder and I am set for the day. I definitley need a little touch up throughout the day, and the powder is perfect for this. Very happy with this purchase.
Long time loverI have been wearing this for 15yrs and I will be for the next 15yrs!!
I recently tried a different foundation as I thought getting older meant i needed to try something new!! Boy was I so wrong, what a waste of money that was! I had major breakouts using other products, my skin was oily and the coverage was crap.
Kryolan is the only foundation that keeps my skin glowing, provides all day coverage and also works great as an under eye concealer. Colour matches are amazing too!! love love love
I love itGreat foundation for oily skin, lasts all day and is very easy to find the perfect colour to match your skin and it Doesn’t feel to heavy on your skin!
Beautiful versatile product.I LOVE the Kryolan TV Paintstick.
Extremely versatile product that you can sheer down to a light coverage, or use as a full coverage foundation. Long lasting product with a huge range of shades.
game changerthe tv stick is such a great product. I use it with the kryolan micro primer and a transluscent setting powder and it stays all day. I like applying it with my fingers, the heat means that it spreads really easily. then i apply with a sponge on my nose, which is prone to a bit of redness, and with a sponge under my eyes where I have a bit of blue bruising. Once it's powdered it DOES NOT MOVE. Feels so light and easy and I love it!
AMAZING!!!!The tv-paint stick is my all time favourite foundation! The formula and amazing pigmentation allows me to use it for everyday natural make-up , as well as , built it up to a full coverage for special events!! It's perfect for any type of skin combination, while it can be kept dewy, it can also be flawlessly set with translucent powder for a matte finish. The foundation is super easy to blend with a brush or a sponge and it works beautifully over different kinds of primers :)
Wow!!!Brought this foundation, because I've seen other people use it, and was highly recommend! And I love love it so so much! Being a makeup artist, this foundation will really last a long time, and the colours are are perfect!!! Couldn't say a bad thing about it. Good for oily skin (my opinion) if you're thinking about getting this, Do it, you won't regret it!!!!!
