Liner Love: Kryolan HD Skinliner in Shade No. 22

Hello Friends,

Today I am reviewing the Kryolan HD Skinliner in Shade No. 22. I got this liner a month back, during my first visit to their store. This is a semi-permanent liner which can be used on the lip and the eyes. But I got it only to use on my eyelids.

Shade No. 22 is a dark brown color.

About the product:

HD Skinliner represents a new concept for precise make-up lines on face and body – and also serves as a perfect lip and eye liner. HD Skinliner is applied easily and conveniently. The soft silicone tip draws a precise line, and the color ink demonstrates excellent adherence to the skin, without running. HD Skinliner is waterproof. Kryolan Eye Make-up Remover is recommended for removal of waterproof Skinliner. Note: After long use of Skinliner, the soft silicone tip can wear out. To extend the life of the liner, just pull out the tip, turn it around, and replace it. This restores the original precision.


If used in the USA do not apply the following shades in the eye area: 10, 20, 21, 30, 31, 32, 51Aqua (Water), Oleth-20, Acrylates Acrylamide Copolymer, Butylene Glycol, PVP/Dimethiconylacrylate/Polycarbamyl/Polyglycol Ester, Tri-C12-13 Alkyl Citrate, Phenoxyethanol, PVP, VP/Eicosene Copolymer, Tromethamine, Oleic Acid, Palmitic Acid, Imidazolidinyl Urea, Methylparaben, Stearic Acid, Dichlorobenzyl Alcohol, Ethylparaben, Butylparaben, Propylparaben, Isobutylparaben and may contain: [+/- Blue 1 CI 42090, Red 40 CI 16035, Green 5 CI 61570, Yellow 5 CI 19140, Black 2 CI 77266, Green 3 CI 42053, Red 33 CI 17200, Red 28 CI 45410, Red 22 CI 45380, Yellow 6 CI 15985].

Price: INR. 400/-

My Experience:

I am not that much comfortable with felt tip liners. However this one with all its semi-permanent claims caught my eye and I purchased it.

It comes in a plastic silver pen with a tight marker-like cap. The color and its shade number are mentioned in the bottom. The cap fits in well with a click and is travel friendly. However I do not find the color and style of packing attractive.  

The color is a beautiful brown and highly opaque. The tip is very comfortable and aids in perfect liner application. The color once applied dries fast and never budges. It is completely smudge-proof.  It does not sting/irritate the eyes or gives a dry stretchy feeling which some felt tip liners imparts. It does not peel off either.

The staying power on my eyelids is pretty impressive. I applied it at 8 AM and found it to be intact even by 5 PM in the evening.

However one thing which I found surprising & contrary to their claim is that, it is not water-proof. When I tested it with my tap water it dissolved in water and the color started running off. Another rub, the liner was off my hand. But this is not a con for me as off late I have started preferring easy wash ones over waterproof ones.


On Eyes:

Let me summarize the pros and cons before moving on to the verdict.


1. Travel friendly packing.
2. Very opaque color.
3. Smudge proof.
4. Does not impart any stretchy feeling or peel off.
5. Tip is very good and picks the color well.
6. Multi-purpose product. Can be used on lips as well.
7. Staying power is impressive. Stays all day along.
8. Wide color/shade choice.


1. Not water-proof.


Very good product and as an eyeliner it emerges as a true winner. I will check out the other shades and if you are not too bothered about its water resistance capabilities, I recommend you to try it.

Hope you girls loved the review.
