FOTD Kryolan Shades Palette in Santiago

Posted by Lipglossiping On September - 22 - 2009

A couple of weeeks ago whilst killing some time waiting to head off to the Maybelline event… Myself, Sian, Sophie, Lydia & Leanne spent a little time browsing Charles Fox in Covent Garden.

I spied upon this little palette and loved it’s metallic sheen  and wearable Autumnal shades.  Upon closer inspection it turned out to be a Kryolan “Shades” Palette in Santiago.


Pretty no?  I love the inclusion of the dark blue over there on the right… great addition.  And the brush that comes with the palette isn’t completely useless either which is more than refreshing!  I can’t remember the exact price but it was around £15.


Here’s yesterday’s FOTD using the above palette.  Apologies for focusing on the wrong eye & then being too lazy to retake.



Products Used:


~ Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion
~ Kryolan Santiago Shades Palette (palest gold on lid/khaki gold in crease)
~ MAC Fluidline in Sweet Sage on upper lid
~ MAC Fluidline in Waveline on lower lashline
~ Max Factor 2000 Calorie Mascara


~ Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid Foundation (still giving this some love… review to come soon)
~ Silk Naturals Maybe Baby Blush (Mac Blushbaby Clone)
~ MAC Blush in Honour (swept gently over the top of Maybe Baby)


~ Urban Decay Lip Primer Potion
~ GOSH Darling Lipstick

Do you own any Kryolan goodies?

    I really like Kryolan. They make some lovely eyeshadows at a v good price, and I like the supracolours for eyeshadow bases.

    I have a couple of their 18 shade lip palettes, which I love beyond all reason, and I think I’m going to have to invest in some more eye palettes, because, of course, the 78 colour palette that arrived on Sunday Just Isn’t Enough …

  3. @GraceLondon – Supracolours…. supracolours *supracolors* – got it! 😀

    @Luce – Hehe, I’ve always wondered about those huge palettes… I will get round to buying one ONE day. Oh, don’t tell me how lovely the lip palettes are. I’ll never leave the shop!

  4. Leanne says:

    Wowee, you came up with something much more pretty and original with this than I did!
    It was £15.95 by the way ;P
    I keep all my makeup receipts and total up at the end of each month… let’s not go there. :)

  5. @Leanne – I was actually thinking how lame my attempt at using it was compared to yours.. I used 2 colours and then got a bit schizophrenic about my eyeliner shades LOL

    You keep your receipts… what are you? Masochistic?

    That colour combo looks gorgeous. I have a Kryolan aquacolor palette but it’s very matte and paint-like so I’ve found it hard to use. These look so pigmented, I’m tempted to get one!

  7. Leanne says:

    Yeah but yours is much more interesting, haha.
    Not masochistic no, I get a strange kick of pride at the end of the month when I total up and think ‘fuck me, I spent that much on makeup? …Cool!’

  8. Ceona says:

    I love this palette and the way you’ve used it. So tempted to get one myself. I’m not sure about that blue though, how would you use it with the other colours? I am stuck in a brown/bronze/gold eyeshadow rut.
