Kryolan Supra Color Revisited…

Posted by Lipglossiping On October - 18 - 2009

So, after some suggestions from you lovely ladies (and before consigning the Supra Color to the ever-growing pile of “tried but don’t love” products) I thought I’d give the Kryolan Supra Color another go with some UDPP underneath.

tick tock tick tock…

So, that’s 4 hours… an hour longer than last time.  I don’t see any improvement in the creasing issue do you?

Even worse… it’s slid my eyeshadow *up* my lid so It looks like I’ve applied my eyeshadow with a freakin’ set square for precision. *That chick looks like she could do with a 217 for Christmas*

I’m admitting defeat on this one.  I wanted to love it for it’s reasonable price, the way it makes pigments even more vibrant, the way pigments stick to it like the proverbial to a blanket.  But creasing is never a good look *sniff*.

Onwards and upwards! Aqua Color next?

    I also dont find that they work as colors or bases.. but i use them for a smudgy smokey eye! I have a few wearable colors.. i apply with a wet brush and thinly.. and i get about 4 hours before it needs touching up!

    Damn, it’s so annoying when things don’t work out like you’d hoped! I’m still loving mine, I must have Sahara Desert eyelids :-)

    I couldn’t find the Aqua Colours on the website, and the ones I did find came in Clown Face colours? Can someone suggest what to go for, with a product number and a link perhaps?

    Oh, I meant to ask you what colour you have on in this picture? It’s absolutely gorgeous. I have very green eyes and that colour is exactly what I’m looking for!

    Hahahahahahahahaha@set square.. you slay me!

    I don’t like what it’s done to your eye in the second pic, it looks like you have a mini golden eyebrow.

    Oh no, sorry its still not working!
    I tagged you for an award on my blog! x

  6. @Tali – I’ve just bought some Ben Nye fixer stuff to see if I can put it to use in some other way like what you describe (great grammar from me there).

    @AlicatAHL – I’ve just bought a black & white aquacolor from makeupeffects.co.uk – they also have skin shades… http://www.makeupeffects.co.uk/acatalog/copy_of_Kryolan.html (never ordered from the ’till now so don’t know if they’re any good)

    070 & 071 were the ones I ordered… tempted by the metallics too, but I’ll see how I fare with these first.

  7. @AlicatAHL – I’m wearing NARS Lola Lola on the lid and Elemental Beauty Mineral Eyeshadow in Sunbeam in the crease. It is a great combo for green eyes. Purples also make the green in my eyes pop.

    @Rhamnousia – Golden Arches!!!! Ok, now I want a Big Mac!

    @Jo – Thanks for the tag!! xx
