Kryolan Aquacolors: swatches & what-the-bleep-do-they-do
I beamed over to Kortrijk yesterday for a last-minute shoot, which also means I had a chance to snap some pics at home!
A little piggy told me I use the Aquacolors so much but never take the time to photograph them.
You’re right piggy, it’s silly. I’ll get right to it.
Kryolan Aquacolor Face Paint (or Eye Paint in my case) is glycerin-based cake make-up in EVERY color you like.
Then you can make even MORE colors by mixing them as desired! :)
You can use them dry as a sheer color or wet as a paint.
To achieve even coverage use a medium amount of water instead of drowning your product!
Then swirl around in the pan until it feels creamy.
I prefer using fingers or a sponge, no brush!!
Patting them on makes it all nice and even I feel.
Now how’s about some swatches?
Eye warning: none of the colors in this post have been edited whatsoever, that’s how bright they are!!! ;)
Aquacolor 12 palette (€36)
From l-r: 070, 288, 509, R21, BL10, Lila, TK2, GR42, 079, 081, 071 & Gold
Loose 15 ml pans (€7.90 for the normal shades €9 for the metallic silver and UV shades I think)
Out of these 5 I only swatched silver one below, the remainders are doubles from my other palettes! :)
From l-r: UV Yellow, UV Red, UV purple, Silver, 070
UV-Dayglow palette (€34)
Not only do these glow under blacklight, they look like they glow during the day as well!!
From l-r: UV Purple, UV Pink, UV Green, UV Yellow, UV Blue, UV Red & Silver
Seriously, I didn’t edit these, UV Red is THAT bright…
~ Easy to wash off with water and soap
~ They’re sold in seperate pans (8,15,30 & 55 ml) or palettes so you have the choice
~ It’s insanely pigmented stuff
~ Pans click out of the palettes, like so:
~ The creamy consistency makes them easily blendable
~ Doesn’t emphasize fine lines
~ They remain flexible, even when dry, to resist cracking
~ Formula dries quickly
~ Smudge-proof: once dry they don’t rub off on your shirt like the Supracolors or other cream products sometimes do
As with certain pigmented MAC cream colors, some people use them on the eyes and some people don’t.
My eyes aren’t bothered by these, but here’s the ingredients to make sure yours won’t get angry either:
What I use them for
~ Eyeshadow base
~ Face / body designs
~ Eyeliner (not in the eye)
~ Without a primer they crease
(I tend to use them under the crease, just on the lid and inner corner)
~ They stain your skin without a primer or something underneath!!
~ If you want a sticky base try the Supracolors!
I hope these bright shades helped fill your day with happy!! :)
What’s your favorite?
