Kryolan Blusher: Lake: Review and Swatches

We’ve all heard people raving about the Kryolan foundation stick, concealer and the translucent powder (including me!) but here is one more product from their vast range of amazing products which all of us can bow down to! Ladies and gentlemen! Presenting to you the Kryolan Blush! STOP!! Now how many of us have heard of these blushers?? Not many of us right? RIGHT :P.

So here’s how I came across this one. Any store I go into the first thing I look for are blushers (I know that is so typical of me!). Unfortunately when the Kryolan flagship store had launched in Chennai, the blushers weren’t in stock so I returned home with just the foundation and the translucent powder (POOR me 🙁 ). The second time I went there my eyes were in for a visual treat! There were so many blushers and I didn’t know which ones to choose. So I bought 3 of them.

The one I’ll be reviewing today is called “Lake”. It is a beautiful pinkish mauve shade which will look gorgeous on all skintones. But I wonder why such a beautiful shade is called “Lake”!! 

Price: Rs 350

Quantity: 2.5g
Packaging: It comes in a circular pan with a plastic transparent lid with the trademark Kryolan logo on top of the lid. It is convenient to carry (although the lid seems to not be of sturdy material) as well as see the color without opening the case.


What the official website says:

It is a mix of a powder and a cream blush. It is a powder blush which is also creamy in texture :/ (I really don’t know how to explain this one! )

The color payoff is extremely good. Lake gives a very natural mauvy pinkish flush to the cheeks and it last throughout the day. (I wore it at 8.30 in the morning and it lasted on me till 8 at night). It did fade a little after a few hours but then it didn’t matter to me since it still looked pretty on my cheeks. A piece of warning though: Don’t get scared by the color in the pan or the amount of color the brush picks up from the pan. The brush transfers the correct amount of color on to the cheeks.

What I like:

  • The color; The pinkish mauve color will suit just about anyone.
  • The pigmentation is fabulous! 
  • The longevity of the color on the cheeks
  • It is inexpensive for the amazing quality although I just wish the quantity could have been a little more.

What I didn’t like:

  • Unavailability; If there wasn’t a Kryolan store in Chennai I wouldn’t have even known about their products other than the ones I mentioned above!
  • Better packaging; They could have used sturdier material for their cases.
  • Wish it came with a mirror and a brush (Kryolan brushes are good I heard so a small brush would have been helpful)


Overall other than these few minor “dislikes” I love the blush! It is a gorgeous color and will definitely suit everyone! I would give this 4/5 :X

PS: There is a 5 and a 15 color blusher palette available at the Kryolan store but the only disadvantage is that we cannot choose the colors we need. It is a pre-set palette 🙁

  • shy

    Nice shade Deepika.I think that they have named it lake bcoz there are lot of lake ingredients. Lake is a form of dye added in cosmetics and food colouration.

  • shy
