Kryolan Aquacolor - 5 different ways to use it!

Helloes ^^

As promised before, here's the Kryolan Aquacolor cream 'pot' post! I'll have to call it 'pot' because honestly I can't say it's a cream eyeshadow or eyeliner or whatever, because it can be pretty much anything you want!
I'll use my aquacolor R27, which is a pretty purple, as an example to show you how versatile this product can be. I also have a black one, a white, a red and a frankenstein green and I'm pretty happy with all of them. I bought them for around 6€ each, which is pretty reasonable considering how big and functional they are. You can also mix this with water to get a more intense color with a slightly different shade.

I use the purple one everyday to draw my eyebrows and it still looks full, so I'm pretty sure this product will last me for a loooong time.

Note: I didn't use any kind of foundation or primer for this pics. The product was directly applied on my skin.

1. Lips

 Because you can get different shades depedning on the amount of water you mix with your Aquacolor, you can get multiple results on your lips. I will warn you tho', your lips can get pretty dry, specially if you apply a thick coat with water, so I recommend you use some lip balm first and then apply the aquacolor (or you can try and mix both!)

2. Eyebrows

As I said previously I use this color everyday for my eyebrows ^^ There are some ocasions that I may draw them in black, but mostly I think this purple shade is a perfect combination with my hair :)
It might seem a bit too ligh or too pinkish sometimes, so to set it (less likely to smudge) and to make the color a little deeper, I put a bit of  (a darker) purple eyeshadow on top of it.

3. Eyeliner

I don't use this method quite as often, since I like to wear mostly black eyeliner, but it's an awesome alternative to colorful cream eyeliners. Apply it with a wet brush, but not as much as you would for your lips, you still want it to have a pretty thick consistency.

4. Eyeshadow

This method doesn't work that well by itself, at least with this shade of purple, and the reason for that is: you're gonna look like you got punched in the eye :D It really has that bruise tone, and although I think it's a pretty neet effect - and I use this often for special effects make-up - for your daily basis is not the best look, so what you can do is using it as an eyeshadow base. If you want some purple eyeshadow to really pop, just use the R27 underneath. 
In the pics I used the R27 only, no eyeshadow. It looks darker in the corner because I applied it with a wet brush, and it looks pinkish in the areas I applied (and smudged) with my finger.


5. Blush/Conturing

And finally! You can use this as a blush and conturing so it kinda counts as 2 :)
You really only need a tiny amount of product for the full drama effect. Use it dry obviously, unless you are going for a face paint makeup 

And that's it! That was a long post :D Hope you find it helpful! ^^


  1. Aside from the colour being absolutely beautiful, this is a very practical product. I will google the product to see what other shades the have.
    Thanks for sharing this very useful information. :)

    1. I'm glad you thought so! I forgot to add that they also have an UV collection, so the colors glow in the dark and are INSANELY bright :D Just image google search "kryolan UV" and you'll see what I'm talking about ^^
