Kryolan is a German brand that specialises in professional make-up for theatre, film, and television, but also have a wide range of products that everyone can use. Their products, which come in boring but practical packaging that bears their logo of a theatrical mask, are designed to withstand the heat of lights and performance and provide excellent color payoff. So I was very excited when I got the chance to try their Lipstick Classic in LC101. Does it live to up to its claims?
Kryolan Lipstick Classic in LC101 is a bright red shade with orange undertones and a slightly shiny, almost matte finish. Although it is bold and bright, it is also wearable and would suit even fair-skinned beauties. It can be easily worn during the day too, as long as you keep the rest of your makeup natural. The lipstick is also very pigmented and you only need very little for each application.
Because the shade is bold, you need to be very careful when you apply it. I recommend you use a lip brush as it will allow you a more precise application and give you better control (please excuse the bad application in the photo above, but I had already swatched quite a few lippies that day which took its toll on my lips). The texture is creamy and glides on easily. It doesn’t dry lips but I don’t find it particularly moisturizing either so I like to apply a thin layer of lip balm underneath.
The lipstick also has great staying power. It lasts about 5 hours on me if I don’t eat or drink. And even after a meal, the color doesn’t completely disappears but fades into a nice, natural stain. The only thing I dislike about the lipstick is its strong wax scent, but luckily it doesn’t hang around long.

Very pigmented, it has a creamy texture that glides easily on the lips and doesn’t dry them out, but doesn’t moisturize them either. It lasts longs on the lips before fading to a nice stain, but the powdery scent can put some people off.
