Kryolan Eyeshadow Highlight Review & Swatches


Hi All,

I mentioned some time back on how much a Highlighter can make a difference to your makeup. I’ve also reviewed the MAC CCB in Hush which happens to me an amazing cream highlighter. But not all of us can indulge in cream based highlighters can we? Oilies would def have an issue with it looking greasy. Hence the need for a powder based highlighter. After Hush, I still wanted a powder highlighter to use during the days the oiliness got too much for me. I found the perfect, budget-friendly highlighter in the form of Kryolan eyeshadow in Highlight. I use it on my eyes as well as my face and it works quite well for me.

My take on the Kryolan Eyeshadow in Highlight:

  • Color: This shade can be described as an off-white shade with a satin-pearl finish. I feel it is a close dupe of MAC Nylon eyeshadow;but not as shiny.

  • Pigmentation & Texture: The texture is a bit firm, albeit not hard. Pigmentation-wise it doesn’t disappoint and a single dip into the pan brings out a whole load of product. It’s easy to blend as well and melts into the skin looking like moonshine.. 🙂
  • Staying Power: This stays much much  longer than MAC Hush..about 5hrs easily.

I was initially fixated on getting an Inglot eyeshadow which would be doubled up as a highlighter but the only one I truly liked was matte and looked too stark on my skin. Why this one gets my vote is that it’s not matte but not super shiny either. It gives off a sort of a pearlescent glow which looks more defining and suits me more than a matte shade would. Plus, at 350 bucks for 3gms of product, this is a complete steal!

What I like about Kryolan Eyeshadow in Highlight:

  • Fab pigmentation
  • Can be used as an eyeshadow or to highlight the browbone, the inner corners, nose and cheeks…All in all, quite a multi-tasker.
  • I love the pearlescent sheen it has.
  • It isn’t blingy and wearable to work
  • Very affordable
  • Decent staying power.
  • Nil fallout.

What I don’t like about Kryolan Eyeshadow in Highlight:

  • Nothing except that the transparent dome-shaped lid is very prone to scratches and chipping.


  • Pigmentation: 5/5
  • Texture: 4.5/5
  • Staying Power: 4.5/5
  • Price vs. Quality: 5/5
