3.9/5 - (45 votes)

Hello everyone, So today I will be reviewing another product from the brand kryolan which is Kryolan Translucent Loose Powder in shade TL4. I have already reviewed two of their products which are tv paintstick and derma corrector orange; and I absolutely loved those two products. Hence, I decided to give this product a try. I was hunting for a loose powder like forever, and any loose powders I came across were damn expensive. I never found an affordable yellow loose powder. Therefore, when I visited kryolan at bandra and saw this baby, I quickly grabbed it. So let us go through the Kryolan Translucent Loose Powder Review, Swatches.

In Detail Kryolan Translucent Loose Powder Review, Swatches in Shade TL 4 and My Experience

The powder is packed in a plastic tub which has the brand logo on top with a sinister smile on the lid. On opening the lid there is another plastic layer. It has many tiny holes to dispense the product. The entire packaging is messy because once the product comes out of the holes, it does not go back in easily.

Overall there are 13 shades of Kryolan translucent loose powder available. Therefore, one can easily find their match perfectly in this range. Mine is TL4 shade which is basically a yellow loose powder.

Let me write a little bit about a yellow loose powder. It basically helps in brightening up the complexion, taking the excess oil away from the face as well as keeping the foundation in place. I have realised over a period of time that no matter how good your foundation is, it’s important to pair it up with a good compact or loose powder. In fact, Kryolan translucent powder one the best loose powders that I have ever got my hands on.

The texture of the Kryolan loose powder is very-very smooth and finely milled. It doesn’t feels chalky at all when you apply it. In fact it helps hide pores to some extent as well.

Although the powder is yellow in colour it does not give any yellow tint to my complexion. On application, it completely merges with my skin and brightens up my complexion. It makes my skin look awake and fresh. This loose powder helps my foundation set properly and prevents my skin from getting oily. It feels very-very lightweight. It keeps my skin from accumulating any natural excess oils hence, the makeup never looks caky or uneven.
