hi guys, I know my blog has been dead lately but thats my fault, it takes effort and I’m lazy😭
I’m currently really sick so am in bed can’t move. However, can’t keep delaying these promised posts!
Today we’re taking a look at the universal faves, the Kryolan TV paint sticks. One shade (FS45) being my skin tone and the other (NG1) being my contour stick!
Heres what they look like.
These sticks are available in about 120 shades worldwide. They come in grayish silver twist able tubes. Packaging, ermm not so pretty. And the lid breaks really easily. I just happened to find a spare lid lying around so yay!
Coming to the product. These are called TV paint sticks for a reason. They’re full coverage, pore clogging, magical imperfection concealers. Well you can use them as anything you like. They’ve been formulated to stay on and withstand hot stage lights, concealing EVERYTHING on a persons face. Kryolan basically deals with huge packaging at low pricing yet amazing quality.
Like I mentioned earlier, these will clog pores! So steer clear acne prone skinned ladies/men, this is not for you. When I got the FS45 last year, I would use it almost everyday wherever I went. However, little did I know that the consequences would be so teriffying. After one/two uses I got huge boils on my face, cystic painful zits that planned to leave scars behind.
After reading the reviews I realized this was what made me breakout so horribly. So I stopped using it and stuck to a regular Maybelline Fit Me liquid foundation 130. Which was also too orange for me!
Around the same time, I bought another stick to CONTOUR, the NG1, which is actually called negro 1, ummm..
This was also way too dark and since I was new to the makeup world, I had no idea about what Id do with it.
A few months later, I melted and mixed almost equal ratios of the two and created a new shade! And it was perfect to contour with.
Just recently I decided to start using FS45 as a concealer on special occasions and I love it! Not slathered all over my face, just under my eyes and on the really ugly zit marks with my mini stippling brush. I also discovered that with the right amount of blending I can also rock the NG1 as contour! Its a bit of an effort but oh well.
So in conclusion
- Full coverage
- Lasts for ages, like literally years.
- Blends nicely with a wet makeup sponge
- 120 shades to choose from
- Amazing price
- Will do great with a setting powder
- Clogs pores and triggers breakouts in acne prone skin
- Average packaging
- Makes the sides of my nose oily
Hope this helped! Please pray for my health!
