Today, I am up with review of Kryolan Dermacolor Camouflage Creme Palette. It has 6 shades. I have this palette from last 1.5 years , just that I couldn’t review it earlier. But I would say this is one of the bestest thing happened to me. This palette changed the meaning of concealing and coverage to me forever. Versatile shades, good texture, tons of options to choose from, I can’t rave more about it.
Though I have seen some people look down on Kryolan, for no reasons, may be because it is not that expensive. But I tell you, it is the bestest when it comes to professional use or bridal makeups or hiding any major scarring, that’s why it is called Camouflage.
When I first went to Kryolan store in Lajpat Nagar, I wanted to buy a good base from them and I had no idea about Dermacolor. The MUA there was applying this base on a male who has a big burn mark on his neck. That male was no MUA or any makeup sort of person but a normal office going person but he wanted to be able to hide that mark without spending fortunes. And with this base, the Kryolan MUA was able to hide his scar completely. I fell for it there and then. Got it with lot more stuff.
Let’s see this palette in detail.
KRYOLAN DERMACOLOR CAMOUFLAGE CREME PALETTE –
Dermacolor Camouflage Creme palette with 6 colors is ideal for professional use. Dermacolor Camouflage Creme is an especially highly pigmented make-up which is designed to correct and cover skin disfigurements, discolorations and tattoos. Dermacolor Camouflage Creme is especially suitable for face and neck. With proper use of the Dermacolor Camouflage System skin abnormalities can be easily corrected. Once Dermacolor Camouflage Creme is fixed using Fixing Powder and Fixing Spray from Dermacolor it will be waterproof and protects the skin against damaging UV radiation. Dermacolor Camouflage could last even under extreme conditions like swimming, heat and physical strain. Dermacolor Camouflage Creme is available in an extensive range of shades and those are intermixable which gives the make-up a natural appearance when applied correctly. ECARF certified.
For best results always warm the cream to body temperature by mixing it on the back of your hand.
This tip is especially noteworthy as if you don’t follow this, you will find the camouflage creme too hard and thick, especially in winters and you will think that it is useless. But no, the cream just needs some warming up and it is as good in any weather or temperature.

Well, I like the packaging, a rectangular metal box, containing 6 colors stacked in a row. The 6 pans are easily removable and you can always refill or customize your palette as per your liking. the outer cardboard box has all details mentioned like price, quantity and ingredients. The single pans inside box are covers with a round plastic transparent cap.
SHADES IN MY PALETTE –
- D4 – Well suited for fair complexions.
- D4 1/2 – Cool toned color.
- D5 – Well suited for medium skin tones. It has yellow undertone.
- D64 – Well suited for medium skin tones. It has yellow undertone.
- DFD – Medium to dark shade with yellow undertone.
- D30 – Orange corrector.
This palette doesn’t contain any green or yellow corrector. But you can always buy them separately. I have already bought yellow one. The shades are so versatile and you can always mix and match them to get your shade. You get to choose from 3 different palettes. So, pick your closest match and you can always get other shades as refills.
I normally use either D64 alone or mix it with D5 sometimes. I am MAC NC40.
MY VIEWS ON KRYOLAN DERMACOLOR CAMOUFLAGE CREME PALETTE –
Kryolan is one of my most favourite brand. All the products are superhit. For professional use, Kryolan is a must have brand. For personal use also, you can have Kryolan products for doing self party makeup. These dermacolor camouflage cremes work as perfect base, highlighting and contouring and for correcting and concealing eyes too. You can achieve all with these. Just that Kryolan products are heavy to use and shouldn’t be used on daily basis. Keep these beauties for heavy party makeups.
Dermacolor range is for heavy coverage and well suited for oily skin. Supracolor range is cheaper than dermacolor but if you have oily skin and suffer from sweating, then go for dermacolor. Supracolor is on oilier side but more blendable.
The staying power of dermacolor cremes is awesome. These don’t budge, not with sweating, not even with water. Yes, you can swim with this on your face and it will be there as it is. Awesome, no!! The trick is to use Fixing Powder over it to set the base.
These camouflage cremes become thick in winters and it becomes tough to use them or take them out from pans. What to do then!! I prefer using mixing plate and spatula. No finger dipping for me. Using spatula makes mixing 2-3 shades easier, so that you can get your desired shade match. These are easy to use and blend. Wet sponge is the best way to use these. Or those oval brushes you get these days, they also work superbly to spread and blend this base evenly.
This foundation/ base has not irritated my skin or broken me out. No allergy, no acne. All smooth, flawless, good looking skin, on which you will get tonnes of compliments. Cream contouring and highlighting is also easy to achieve. Plus the base can also be used as eye base & primer. It works!!
HOW TO MAKE IT WORK AND OTHER PROS –
- Use mixing plate and spatula to scoop out the product. You can mix up to get your perfect color.
- Dermacolor range is well suited to oily skin. It has less oil. But in winters, it gets dry and uncomfortable. To combat that, take out the product either on back of palm or mixing plate and get the foundation warmed up a bit. It will become dream again.
- Always, Always, Always set it with Kryolan Dermacolor Fixing Powder and it won’t budge even for a full day. Whenever you feel a change in appearance or finish, again dab the Fixing Powder and you will be as fresh. If you won’t use the fixing powder, the creme foundation will smudge and look ugly and won’t stay.
- It is no doubt inexpensive when we see the quality.
- Though not recommended, you can wear it to swimming or gym too. When fixing powder is applied on top, it will stay!!
- Please use your exact shade. Using fairer base won’t make you look any fair but you will go grey. So choose colors wisely, neither dark nor light.
- Always moisturize your face before applying base even if you have oily skin. Better to use primer too.
- Highly pigmented.
- Travel friendly.
- Blending is tough but wet sponge or oval brush is the key.
- It is full coverage and used in bridal makeups widely.
