Kryolan Lipstick Classic LC 157 Review & Swatches



Kryolan Lipstick Classic LC 157

Hi everyone,

I went to the Kryolan store a few days back looking for their gel eyeliners and to check out stuff in general. Everything I asked for or tried from the testers was out of stock. It was really disappointing and I asked the SA to shut the store and reopen only when they have enough stock to sell (in a not-so-offending way of course!). Then to my surprise I found this lipstick which I happened to like and they had the fresh piece available. Well, thank god for that!

My experience with Kryolan Lipstick Classic (LC) 157:

It comes in a silver metallic body. There is nothing fancy about the packaging, it reminds of old times’ lipsticks; the ones my mom used in my childhood. There is nothing more you can ask for in that price. It is tough enough to not break on falling and look wise it is just fine as I said above.

The reason I bought this lipstick was the shade. It is the prettiest and the most perfect rust shade I have come across so far. I always wanted this shade to wear particularly with my green outfits. I own numerous pinks and not one good rust shade. That was so not fair! So the moment I swiped the tester on my hand, I asked the SA to pull out a fresh piece for me. Now, on top of that, this is matte in texture- total love! It is not a powdery matte but comfortable smooth matte. So that becomes the second reason why I love it.

The color pigmentation is great too. It completely covers the lips in one swipe. I would not recommend building it up because that causes flaking of the lip color and that’s not necessary either.

The staying power is pretty good. It stays 5-6 hours if you do not muddle with it and have light meals only. Full meals would lighten the lipstick and then DO NOT put a second layer on the previously lightened layer because it will again cause flaking as I said. Remove the lipstick completely and reapply.

It has slight old times lipstick fragrance, towards which I am neutral; neither like it nor hate it.

Overall, this is a very flattering and beautiful rust shade in matte finish and I would totally recommend this to everyone. This is going to compliment everyone’s complexion trust me!
