Primer heaven! Kryolan Micro Primer

Kryolan HD Primer

I don’t know what I would do without primer. Some say that mascara is their savior or lipstick…but for me it’s definitely primer. Finding an excellent primer was life-altering for me because for the very first time my makeup actually lasted all day. I’ve always had strange skin, products don’t last long on me at all – I put blush on and an hour later, it’s completely gone. For a long time I thought there was nothing I could do about it – until I found a primer that actually made my makeup (and most happily my blush) last a whole day. I think I bought every primer on the market for the next few years after that. I have owned and used so many different primers I am ashamed to put a number on it. I am so happy to share with you one of the very best primers I have ever used – Kryolan’s HD Micro Primer ($31.50).


Kryolan HD Primer

Simply put, this primer is the bomb. It’s a thick primer that goes on rather dry and needs no setting time. It instantly smooths out skin, making my pores invisible – like a miracle. Fine lines and wrinkles are diminished, too. The formula has silk protein which helps to keep your skin’s moisture level regulated, so the primer doesn’t dry skin out or make it oily and shiny. My makeup not only goes on better, it looks better – more vibrant, yet more natural at the same time. It’s a noticeable difference. And the lasting power! Holy moly. I can’t rave enough. Blush that would normally last five hours on me lasts twelve hours! Incredible. HD Micro Primer is also paraben-free.

HD Micro Primer makes my skin look so good, I actually use it by itself on days that I don’t bother with makeup. Kryolan has so many fantastic products that it is difficult for me to choose a favorite, but if I absolutely had to, the HD Micro Primer would be my choice. It’s primer heaven. – Lisa

  1. Wow! I need to try this asap. I’ve tried dozens too! I have a very oily t-zone and a slightly rough starting to wrinkle texture near the mouth. This sounds like it would smooth things out. Thanks!

  2. I have never thought of using primer but this product intrigues me. I like that it nourishes the skin and it can even be used by itself!

  3. This sounds like a very effective primer.

  4. Sounds like one I’d like to try out! I like those days when you feel good in just primer!

  5. Your recent Kryolan posts and encouraging me to finally seek out the Kryolan store in Boston next time I go into town. This sounds like a great primer!

  6. I love a good primer. I need a good primer. My skin eats makeup unless I use one and this primer looks like a good one!

  7. Susan Gillam says

    Looks like a great primer!! I would love to try this.

  8. I definitely need to try this. I have yet to find my holy grail primer!

  9. I love it when you find your HG product out there. I didn’t even know they made primer!

  10. I don’t prime anymore but this sounds like a good product from Kryolan. Good to know it helps w/ pores

  11. I have not been impressed with the primers I’ve tried, but this one sounds like it could change my mind. I think I’ll be trying this one.

  12. I have tried a couple primers and they really didn’t do too much for me. This one looks interesting and if it has your vote of confidence, I will give it a try.

  13. I have never heard of this brand but I do love primers so I will have to check them out!

  14. Fewer things are better than a good primer! I hate taking time to get my makeup done and have it disappear in no time. Glad you found one that works so well for you!

  15. I agree, primer is a must have for us over 40 women!

    It looks like a nice consistency!

  17. Kryolan is a brand I don’t se emention on the blogs often, but their products are seriously amazing! I guess it’s because they’re mostly for professionals. I personally like their lipsticks!

  18. Ehmkay Nails says

    This sounds like a great primer but I’m all about eyebrow powder and mascara. Without those two items, I’d be empty! Lol

  19. I love the look of the bottle and nozzle. This primer sounds amazing, I’m going to have to pick it up and give it a test.

  20. My Nail Polish Obsession says

    I thought Kryolan was a house paint thing? Maybe not but the name seems more like an industrial product than a makeup thing.

  21. Kryolan was a professional brand that was highly recommended by all the beauty enthusiast when I started getting into makeup in France!

  22. I haven’t tried much from Kryolan, although I’ve heard that their concealers are next to nothing else. This primer sounds really good for hot humid days – you can’t go wrong with theatre-level staying power!

  23. I’m so down to try this out! Most days I don’t put on makeup but I want to look fresh faced and this sounds like something I could really use.

  24. Teresa Koedyker says

    Thank you for sharing!! I have never heard of this brand but going to place a order to try some of their products the look and sound amazing!!

  25. I love a primer that improves the texture of my skin and can be worn alone and not look odd.

  26. Wow … clearly a primer that I have to try. I browsed their website too, lots of products that look very nice!
