REVISITED | Kryolan Anti Shine Powder Review

March 29, 2013

Ciao everyone! I am missing in action again! 


I just want you to know that I have not given up on blogging just yet. 

Just that most of my time is spent on some family issues I needed to deal with especially because it concerns my dad. My dad’s surgery was done sometime this month and after 15 days or so, he is now out of ICU. Whew! Just the same, he is still recuperating from his surgery and is expected to be out of the hospital soon. Thank you all for your prayers. Please continue to pray for us that he recovers the soonest!

Now back to regular programming, I am going to review the Kryolan Anti Shine Powder which I picked up at Kryolan store at Il Terrazzo after I was invited in another event last January for Php 1,350.00 (USD 32+ )

You must remember that mattifying products are one of the best things invented for someone like me who has oily/ combination skin.

What is it? Well Kryolan’s official website says this:

Anti-Shine Powder is a special matt powder, similar in its way to Asian rice powder. At the same time, however, Anti-Shine Powder prevents unwanted dull effects and creates a pleasant feeling on the skin.

Anti-Shine Powder is colorless and is especially effective for the additional matting effects that become necessary during long sessions shooting.

It reminds me of my Ben Nye Neutral Colorless powder which I reviewed some weeks ago. It is a finely-milled powder in white which disappears in your skin in a matter of minutes.

Me Says:

* Reduces my shine and keeps my face matte for about 6+ hours
 * Not ghostly white on me when applied (if ever it did, just wait for a couple of minutes before it finally sets in)
* It’s a huge amount of product for its price (30g)
* You don’t need a lot—because a little goes a long way.


* While the packaging looks elegant and sturdy, I personally don’t like products with sifter. I always end up with messy application so the tip is to carefully tap the excess before applying in your face.

Overall Verdict:

5 Lipsticks

I usually use this as a setting powder after applying my foundation. I’d like to think that this is translucent when applied even though it is "white"  though others complained that it appears ghostly on them. I suggest using only very little amount of product and build it as you go along.

TIP: Use a huge, fluffy powder brush when applying this product.

Buy Again: Yes, yes, yes!

I see this powder as staple for most people working in front of the camera even on male celebrities! Anlakas lang maka- artista ano? Hehehe..

Okay, I am not even a celebrity, but who cares?

    1. Hello Eyah,

      I prefer Kryolan than the Ben Nye. But Ben Nye does a good job too. Kryolan is pricier but good stuff.
