Why Kryolan Lippies Are A Hit Among Local Celebs!

Once, I told Ren how much I loved Gelai's Lipstick, Bea Alonzo's character in the ABS-CBN soap Magkaribal. 

She said that it could be from Kryolan- Bea's fave brand and also a favorite among other celebs like Kris Aquino, Jinky Pacquiao and of course, several professional make-up artists in the industry. I went to their SM North Edsa branch the first time just to look around. The second time, I went there primarily to purchase Bea's lippie. The kind beauty consultant took hold of their in-store lipstick palette and showed Bea's choice:  Lipstick Classic Shade LC122. When I put it on, the lippie glided smoothly and the pigmentation was really very good! 

Somehow I felt that a much lighter tint will look better on me. I put on the LC121 shade and fell in love with it instantly!

As you can see it has very good pigmentation!

It also complements my skin tone which is a must in choosing lippies.

I used the lippie as a rouge too! On top of it, I applied Etude's Peach Balm Blusher.

What I love about it:
* Great and bold pigmentation
* Creamy matte nature
* Easy glide-on ability even without lip gloss
* Doubles as a good rouge (blusher)
* Quite affordable
* Good staying power

What I'm not particularly fond of:
* Although it has a good staying power, it still stains on drinking glasses and my toddler's cheeks.
* It lasted on my lips for a few hours without flaking, but I felt a little dry somehow that I put on a layer of lip gloss on top of it. The gloss, however did not diminish the lippie's bold pigmentation in any way.

Will I buy another one?
Oh yes. Most definitely!

In fact, I'm not just thinking of purchasing lippies, but also their blusher which was pretty amazing. Yes, I asked the kind beauty consultant if I can try their bestseller. When I put it on, I immediately thought of Geum Jandi's cheeks on Boys Over Flowers! My cheeks were glowing naturally because of its matte, pinkish finish. 

I also liked their 3D foundation/concealer very much. I told myself that if I were still on TV, I might have bought it at first sight. The finish reminded me very much of my Kanebo foundation, a definite favorite during my TV newscasting days.

Just in case you're interested, I bought my lippie for Php 650 at Kryolan SM North Edsa. They also have this amazing Lip Palette for Php 2,500 which I think is great if you're a make-up artist, into modelling,  showbiz or simply a self-confessed make-up junkie. Now, I've finally understood why Kryolan is a hit among industry insiders.
