Kryolan Lipstick in LC 164 Review and Swatch

Hello friends,

The color orange finds a special place in my heart during summers. They are bright and cheerful. Today, I am going to review one such shade from Kryolan. Kryolan needs no introduction. Their lipstick range has three categories namely LC, LF and LP. The one I am going to review is from the LC range and it is shade No. 164.

Kryolan Lipstick in LC 164 Review

It comes in Kryolan’s traditional Metallic grey and silver bullet

LC 164 is a bright orange shade. It does not have any shimmers.

It has a satiny semi-matte finish. However the sheen wears off within two hours and the pure semi-matte orange color remains.

The texture is Smooth and buttery. But the bullet does not feel fragile.

The lipstick is highly pigmented and imparts rich and opaque color.

On my lips it stays for around 4-5 hours and leaves a stain which again stays for another one hour or so. It survives mild snacks but I am not sure about this surviving a meal.

It imparts color evenly and glides smoothly. It does not emphasize dryness though I would suggest wearing a lip balm beneath this.

The lipstick has a mild fruity scent which is not bothersome at all. 

The swatches are taken at various lighting to give an idea about the color. I am banned for some time from posting lip swatches. I will try to come back with them asap. Hope you girls understand.

What I like:
  1. The bright orange shade that screams summer.
  2. Nice texture.
  3. Wonderful pigmentation.
  4. The satiny finish.
  5. Decent staying power.
  6. Travel friendly packing.
  7. PRICE – who gives such a good quality lipstick at just INR.300/-??  

What I hate:
  1. Their stocks are highly unreliable but the staffs are cooperative (at least in Chennai).

Indian Beauty Maniac’s Rating

Kryolan is known for quality products at a modest price tag but this is incredible. The color, texture, pigmentation, wear-time etc are all awesome. If you spot this at the outlet, do not think. Just grab.
