How is everyone?
Summers in full swing here. And I so hate it. Either be in AC or get fried.
Stable and long lasting makeup becomes a challenge in summers and humid days for many. Right!! Makeup done but how to make it stay. It just goes away or smudges in sweat.
No more a problem.
Though many of you must be knowing about fixing powders and makeup fixing sprays, but there are many who struggle for their perfect fixer and that too within budget.
So, here I am, sharing Kryolan Dermacolor Fixing Powder Review with you all. I have already reviewed and swatched Kryolan Dermacolor Camouflage Creme 6 shade palette here. The palette gives an awesome coverage all year round. Works perfectly in summers and humid weather too. But, to make it waterproof and stay whole day long, you need this same range Dermacolor Fixing Powder. Let me tell you more.

It comes in a white plastic tub , brand name and product name mentioned on top, covered with a white lid. Inside the lid, there is a plastic partition with holes to control the powder. the holes are initially covered with a sticky paper. My advise is to remove sticky paper only from 2-3 holes to limit powder coming out. Opening it as a whole everytime will lead to product wastage.
My Experience with Kryolan Dermacolor Fixing Powder –
I love all Kryolan products that I have, be it their palette or powder or fixing spray. Everything works wonders. No regret buying. Instead, I will keep repurchasing them ever.
Coming to this fixing powder, the brand claim it mattifies your makeup and sets it and makes it water proof. It does? Yes.
Kryolan fixing powder does mattify the makeup and sets it for at least 4-5 hours in day time too, summers!! Yes. If its a wedding or any function, use it and you can forget about it. It sets the makeup. Also, it makes the makeup waterproof. It causes no white cast or change in foundation color.
Not only with Kryolan Camouflage Cremes, it works with any brand equally and sets and mattifies all makeups. But with Kryolan Camouflage cremes, what happens is – in summers, when you are using cremes for base, contouring, highlighting, then they start smudging after some time due to heat and sweat. So, after doing base, dust this fixing powder all over your face and there won’t be any mess or smudging then. The makeup will stay intact for long.
Even after, 7-8 hours, when your face starts becoming shiny and you need to attend a party in hurry, then no need for redoing makeup. Just apply the fixing powder liberally all over face and all the oil will be gone and your face will be left all fresh and matte. This is a good thing. No!!
Once, Ritcha did a fashion shoot makeup in Melbourne where the model was to take a dip in sea after makeup. There, Ritcha used Kryolan powder to fix her base and the makeup remained intact till end. No touch ups. That is a big thing!!
The texture of powder is ultra smooth and finely milled and if you open the lid without caution, it will fly everywhere. I keep only 1-2 holes open in my container to control the product wastage. It works for me.
Tips for using Fixing Powder –
- Use a fluffy powder brush to pick the powder and set the makeup on whole face.
- Use more powder on oily zones of face and light dusting on other parts.
- Use it for setting of Kryolan Dermacolor Camouflage Creme. A must product.
- Use it to set your base, any makeup, any brand.
- You can do baking with this. Use a beauty blender or a small dense brush for packing powder on specific areas of face. Let it be there for some time and dust off.
- Works great for setting under eye area too. Again use beauty blender or small dense brush. Take good quantity of powder and apply under eyes for approx 2 mins and then dust off. No smudging, no creasing. Thumbs up.
Achieving all this at such am affordable cost is an achievement in itself. Plus, if you are not using it professionally, it may last you forever but it has a shelf life of 2 years.
There are no cons in it. You should try it.
MGA Rating –
My only advise is to avoid fakes. Kryolan has a bad name due to fake products that are all over near us. Even in salons!! Else Kryolan is best. They have only 1 outlet in Lajpat Nagar. Locate it on Google and shop from there and enjoy.
