A few weeks ago, I had dinner with Ulrike Bege, District Manager for Kryolan Cosmetics, and got the scoop on all the latest and greatest new things. Kryolan is a fantastic line that has products for both everyday use and for theatrical use. Did you know that the majority of Illamasqua products are actually produced by Kryolan? I am going to the Face & Body Expo in Chicago next month where I will be stocking up on the newest things, but in the meantime here is a quick glimpse of what’s to come:
This is the new, reformulated Eyeshadow Primer. It feels super silky on, and it really brightens up the color of eyeshadows.
Ulrike showed me her bottle of Makeup Blend - this is not the ‘official’ packaging. I went bananas over this! It’s a silky liquid that thins out cream and liquid foundation. It helps foundation last, and it gives a beautiful matte finish. So it gives old products new life (turn liquid foundation into tinted moisturizer! Or thin out that too-thick cream foundation!) It also saves money as you use less product when combined with Makeup Blend. I can’t wait to get my own bottle.
HD Micro Primer feels so amazing on, Ulrike was laughing at me because I was simply swooning over this. WOW it feels amazing! As all primers do, it minimizes pores and fine lines and makes skin smooth. This has a small amount of silicone so it feels extremely silky, but not too slick. It is to die for.
The High Gloss lip glosses are spectacular. The amount of pigmentation is fantastic, and the mouth feel is just perfect – not sticky, and not so slick as to wear off after ten minutes. The colors? Amazing.
I sat at our booth swatching away as Ulrike munched on her salad, giggling at my delight. But hey, what can I say, shimmer makes me shiver!!
Everything was stunning and there is so much I am looking forward to! I plan to get a full range of these products in March and I will share everything after I try them all for a while. Until then, I will be dreaming of Kryolan! – Lisa
