Today I’m reviewing an orange concealer or corrector from Kryolan. Orange concealers or correctors are basically used to neutralize grey/ blue skin discolorations. If you have heavy, stubborn under-eye dark circles, or skin pigmentation, this one might just be for ya!
About Kryolan Derma Color Camouflage Creme- D30: An exceptionally effective and long lasting special make up for the concealment of discolorations in skin abnormalities, scars and tattoo marks.
Price: Rs. 350 for 4mL
Packaging: The Kryolan Derma Color Camouflage Creme- D30 comes in a small white tub with a green screw-on cap. The tub packaging makes the product a little unhygienic to use, but I make sure I use a q-tip to scoop out product to keep it contamination free. It is otherwise a travel friendly pack.
Ingredients: Refer to the image below.
Shelf life: 24 months after opening
My take on Kryolan Derma Color Camouflage Creme- D30: The D30 creme is a bright orange crème of a thick texture. You really need to scoop out some product from the pot to use it. It spreads not-so-easily onto the skin, and you need to carefully apply it only to the areas which need color correction, and blend well.
A few minutes after application, though, you can really note that the discoloration below looks lesser in intensity, so you know it’s working. The MUA at the Kryolan store told me that color correctors should be left on the skin for 2-3 minutes before applying the next layer (foundation), and I do follow her advise.
Under-eye dark circles are what made me buy this product, and I must say, I’m definitely happy with the kind of concealment I get with a corrector, rather than with just a regular skin-coloured concealer. So efficacy wise, this product wins.
The staying power of this product cannot be judged alone, since it is always worn with foundation on top of it. But I’ve never had any problem with this product in terms of staying power (it doesn’t alter the staying power of other products), so I’m not complaining.
You can see the before and after pics below. In the 'After' pic, I have used this orange corrector, followed by MAC Studio Finish concealer.
*Sorry for the puffy eye, I had a sleepless night before clicking this one :P
My only grudge is with the texture. it is a bit too thick for my preference. That could, in part, be due to the fact that I tried out the pen-style orange corrector at the store before buying this, and that one had a thinner texture, so it spread easily, and was more user-friendly.
Pros of Kryolan Derma Color Camouflage Creme- D30:
· Helps conceal blue/ grey based skin discolorations, like under-eye dark circles
· Does not alter staying power of other make-up products
· Easy to use
· Affordable price
Cons of Kryolan Derma Color Camouflage Creme- D30:
· Texture is a bit too thick, so it’s a little tricky to apply this product
· Tub packaging
· Kryolan products are still not widely available
Verdict: Do check this one out! An orange corrector is a must-have if you have discoloured skin or dark circles.
