Kryolan Lipstick in L490: Swatches & Review


Hi All,

After seeing all those Kryolan goodies reviewed by A, I just couldn’t keep myself away. I simply had to indulge in some Kryolan retail therapy. Which is exactly what I did on my previous trip to Chennai. Deepika and I ripped the store from wall to wall and bought oodles of goodies. This lipstick was the only one I picked up though…and mind you, I would have picked more had my bank account been a tad bit heavier, but I’m glad I got the chance to sample a good few bits from them…

My experience with Kryolan Lipstick in L490:

  • Color: This shade is a deep rosey pink with an underlying hint of Fuschia. It doesn’t have any shimmers, but tat doesn’t stop it from being shiny and giving an ultimate glossy look to my face.
  • Price: INR 250 for 4gms

  • Coverage & Pigmentation: This is a sheer finish lipstick but still provides medium coverage. It covers up the pigmentation on my lips and makes them look really glossy. I usually need just 1-2 swipes of this and I’m all set to go out.

  • Texture: This lipstick is soft and glides over my lips like silk. It doesn’t sink into my liplines when they are healthy..but yes, if you use this on even minorly chapped lips, it just accentuates the flakiness.
  • Staying Power: This lipstick has a staying power of about 3-4 hours.

I feel like everyone should try Kryolan products…not only are they pocket friendly, but they have such a huge variety. Even in lipsticks, they had oodles of finishes and being me, I just couldn’t help but gravitate towards the sheer ones. What sets these sheer lipsticks apart also I’d like to mention is the glossy finish. Don’t get me wrong, I love my MAC Lustre lippies which are just as sheer, but they ain’t as glossy as this. This is like pouring silk on my lips and gives this decadent feel even while application. Who wouldn’t want that right?


I have nothing to say against these lipstick except….why in the world don’t they give them names?? As it is I hate having numbers to identify the shades and Kryolan and complicated it further by making it alpha-numeric!! Why?? whyyy???
