Kryolan TV Paint Stick FS 38-Review, Photos, Swatches


Kryolan TV Paint Stick FS 38
Result: Kryolan TV Paint Stick is the only foundation stick I have tried after the Maybelline Express Finish Foundation Stick (which was discontinued a long time ago). I bought the Kryolan TV Paint Stick out of curiosity. Yeh, that's true. While at Naheed's about a week ago, I came across the company counter and bought it, because I am about to run out of my Luscious HD Mineral Foundation (read review) and I really wanted to switch for a change. So let's roll.

The packaging is so not my type. I don't know I just can't stand bad packaging. For this, the product is packed in a twist up cylinder, which looks like kiddy makeup from China. For a product that works amazing, the packaging kills half the thrill. I don't know, maybe that's how theater makeup is packed, but it still does not seem professional. At least, that's what I feel.

The foundation texture is super blendable. I never thought I'd say this, because it felt dry when I was dotting it on my face, I kinda feared it wouldn't blend. But to my surprise, it vanished after one swish of a makeup sponge. It was super easy to work with and I was done within a few minutes. It doesn't feel heavy on the skin and does not produce oil. I have oily skin and was concerned about it bleeding off, I was relaxed after I set it with some matte pressed powder, it went no where.  But remember that it is a heavy coverage stick, so it won't be a good idea to use it on a daily basis. It's perfect for use on events and occasions where a lot of photography is to be done. It does not crease or produce blotches. It smells like cream but the fragrance is gone after application. I am a shade FS 38, which has a slight yellow undertone to it and is suitable for Asian skin tones.


Cons: Bad packaging


The Kryolan TV Paint Stick is available in more than 120 shades. The cylinder contains 25 grams of the product.


Rating: 4.5/5





Price: PKR 915/-

Available at:

Pakistan: Kryolan counters across super stores and online at Just4girls.pk

UAE: Souq.com

International: Kryolan US website

Conclusion: It is not my everyday foundation but a must own product. I am in love with the Kryolan TV Paint Stick and it delivers what it promises. It's quality at an affordable price. Recommended? Yes!

    1. Hi Rida. I'm sorry to know about your purchase. There a lot of versions of the tv paint stick out there so ending up with a fake one is probable. I'd suggest not to use the one you have if it differs in fragrance and packaging as all paint sticks are packaged the same and smell the same, except for the shade difference. The price is anywhere around Rs. 900 to 1100 and not less. How much did you get yours for? I'd strongly recommend to buy cosmetics from reputed stores or online. Local shops cannot be trusted.

    4. Hi, fake ones usually smell different, the packaging is bad and text on the packaging may be different too. To ensure you get the original product it is best to buy from a reputed store or from the brand counter directly.

    5. Hi, im sorry i have never used the kryolan loose powders but what i do suggest is that the tv paint stick is full coverage. Try using rimmels stay matte pressed powder with it. Ita a wonderful product. Hope this helps.

    1. Hi Bushra, the best way to get your perfect shade is to try the stick at the counter. Since you are medium tanned, I'd suggest going for a shade with yellow undertones. Stay away from ivory/white and pink shades. Kryolan has counters at Naheed's super market and Chase-up, Karachi.

    1. Hello zara. The best way to find your match is to visit a counter and test the shade on your jaw line. I also have a medium skin tone and I use FS 38. I cannot recommend you a shade because I haven't seen you. If you reside in Karachi, visit Naheed Super Store and you'll find a Kryolan counter there. Choose a shade with yellow under tones. Ask the sales girl to help. Avoid ivory (very white) and pink shades. I hope this helps :).

    1. Hello Dua :), for your proper shade match I suggest you checkout the kryolan counter at Naheed Super Market. From what I understand, your skin tone is somewhere between light to medium. Go for a shade that have a yellow undertone to it. Do not go for very white shades or pink shades. The lady at the counter shall be able to assist you. I hope this helps :)

  9. Hello, you seem to know a lot about the product. :)
    Could you please guide me a little on what shade I should use for a medium (yellow undertone), I live in Canada and it's hard to see a color in person as there aren't any Kryolan stores near. I see you used FS38 but i really need my exact color please. if need be I can send you a picture of my skin tone ( face)? Oh also, i'm a NC35 in Mac, If that helps.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi :), I believe FS 38 is perfect for a MAC NC35 as it also comes under the yellow undertone range. FS 38 won't show darker on your skin but should blend in easily. Hope this helps :)

  10. Hi Kiran,
    I have Krylon TV Paint Stick in Ivory and I wear it on special occasions only. I have noticed that it's one tone fairer than my color which makes me pretty pale. Can you recommend me any other color so I can mix it with ivory. I have fair complexion with yellow undertones.

    1. Hello Afreen :),

      I would suggest to visit a kryolan counter and try blending ivory along with a tone that is 1 tone darker than your natural complexion. If it matches your skin tone then perfect. Otherwise try and blend a shade 2 tones darker with ivory and look at the result. Try this on your jawline. Since you have yellow undertones avoid mixing pinkish shades.

      Delete
  11. Hi Kiran. I would also like to ask your assistance in ascertaining the right shade for my skin. I have a fair complexion (but not extremely white like Pathans), and have a oily skin. I am a sucker for getting the right shade, I always end up taking darker shades perhaps because I test it on hands instead of jaw line like you recommended.

    1. Hello Ramsha :). Kryolan tv paint sticks come in a wide variety of shades. Since you have fair skin, keep away from yellow toned shades. Head to any kryolan counter and test shades EF 21 and shade 406 on your jawline. See if they suit your skin tone. I hope this helps :).

    3. The best way is to choose your perfect foundation shade. Try out ivory and shades closer to that color range. Test out shades that have the least amount of yellow under tone to them.

    1. Hello Nimra :),

      The Kryolan tv paint stick comes is a wide variety of shades. You mentioned your skin tone is medium. I also need to know the undertone. If your skin undertone is cool you can try 3W and 4W but if it is warm then try shades FS36, FS38 and FS41. I hope you'll find your ideal shade among these. Test the colors on your jawline at a Kryolan counter. If you're unsure about your skin undertone checkout my foundation guide

    1. Hi, yes F1 is pretty close to ivory. Kryolan has a wide range of shades to match almost every type of skin tone this is the reason they have different names for each shade. Regarding your last question I could not find any information on the difference between F and FS.

  21. Hi I have fair skin and I bought ivory but when I use it I can still see some spots and dark circles so which shade should I buy for concealing.like normaly salons use 2 shades .

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. For concealer is it best to go for a shade darker because the lighter your concealer the more it will highlight flawed areas. Since ivory isn't working for you, try mixing it with a shade or two darker and apply. It is best to try out the a kryolan counter so you don't spend money on the wrong shades. Hope this helps.

    1. Hi, the perfect math shade for kryolan paint stick depends on the undertone of your skin. Shades like GG, fs 29, fs 41, ob 1 and elo are light colors but i recommend testing them on your jawline at a kryolan counter for a perfect match. Thanks

  25. Hello can you plz tell me wat shade concealer should be used to conceal my dark circles if I'm using fs 38? Nowadays there's a trend to apply concealer after base and light colored concealers are being used. So I'm a bit confused about the color of concealer like it should be darker than my skin tone or lighter.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi,

      Concealer should always be a shade or 2 darker to cover dark circles. A light shade is used for highlight because the dark circles are already covered with a color corrector. It is never recommended to use lighter shade concealers as they will only bring more attention to the flawed area. Hope this helps.

    1. Hi maryam,

      I suggest you give fs 45 a shot first and of that is still dark go for fs 38. The difference between these shades is the actual color. Kryolan has the biggest shade range in foundations so they make colors for almost every skintone possible. Go to kryolan counter in your city and try both these shades on your jawline. Pick the one that blends in. Hope this helps.

    1. Hi sumaira, I'm good how r you? Packaging too is a major problem these days as fake ones look exactly like the original and only some minor differences can tell real from the fake. To avoid getting into such a situation it is better to shop from authorized retailers and kryolan counters across the country. If you reside on karachi, there are kryolan counters at Naheed and chase up. Online you can get it from just4girls. I hope this helps.

    1. Hi Saba, I'm good alhum dullilah, how r u? From what I could find, the W and EF series have pink undertones to them. Try shades from these 2 ranges on your jawline. And as for powder, the shade natural is suitable. As the foundation itself is high coverage you don't want colored translucent powder to go with it.
