Kryolan is known as one of the world’s first professional make-up brands. So when its store was launched in Bangalore, I was really excited to check it out. They have all things, ranging from lipsticks, glosses, foundations, highlighters, makeup pallets, brushes, etc. Today I will be reviewing the contour sticks I got from there. This product is called paint sticks. It is smooth, lustrous and highly pigmented. Gives great coverage and has a smooth matte finish even though it’s a cream based product.

Overall Would I Recommend Or Repurchase?
Personally, I would not repurchase this product as I am not a pro makeup artist working in theater or film industry. I use it only for myself and the product comes in great quantity. It gets expired in about three years but the sticks are big enough to last even longer. I would prefer buying a smaller version for the same product but that option is not available yet.
I will definitely recommend this product to theater and film makeup artists as it gives an amazing, smooth, non-patchy finish on application.
