Hi,

Color Corrector are the best way to conceal under eye darkness.  Orange Color Corrector is used to cancel the blue/ purple color which is visible due to thin under eye skin.

Kryolan concealers are hands down the best concealer for dark under eye circles available in India (for that matter anywhere). I have two of them, Kryolan Brush-On Concealer in Shade 6, and Kryolan Dermacolor Camouflage Creme in shade DFD. Read on tho know why I made the claim “best under eye concealer“. Will soon review the second concealer as well. I use this particular shade (06) as a corrector.I have very dark under eye area. The pigmentation is so dark that it is almost brown under eye.  I have tried many concealers and corrector like Bobbi Brown Corrector (which I have also reviewed), Mac, Cover FX, MUFE, YSL etc. which gave me okay results. In normal world, I would say that they are good and people should use them. But in my case they are just okay, I always feel the need of “just-a-bit-more”.

Kryolan Brush-On Concealer is an Orange Color Concealer which is used to correct the dark under eyes.

Why do we need  to use a color corrector? Color correctors are used to cancel out or neutralize any colored undertone. As in under eye area, the major reason for darkness is the blue / purple tinge because of the nerves showing through the skin.

Texture & Consistency:

  • The Kryolan Brush-On Concealer is very light, semi – liquid in texture.
  • It  is not heavy in its consistency. It feels thin.
  • It is not exactly creamy, so one needs to apply a good under eye cream before applying this.
  • If applied on a moisturized under eye area it looks pretty natural.

Pigmentation & Coverage:

  • I hope I don’t over exaggerate it when I say that it is the power house of pigmentation. It is highly pigmented concealer.
  • Indeed it is a full coverage concealer.Only smallest – tiniest amount is needed to be used. On the negative side, it needs to be applied with utmost care otherwise one can land up looking like an Orange.

Staying Power:

  • I have seen this in action on a cousin on the worst humid day. It stayed on her for full 12 hrs and it did not moved from its place until she removed it.
  • As I use this particular shade as a corrector, I have never used it separately. But It works very well in conjugation with the Dermacolor Camouflage Creme.
  • I never had any issue with color bleeding or settling into fine lines etc.

Application: 

  • I start with a very small quantity. Just one click of the pen is enough to cover the under eye area of both eyes.
  • I use the applicator brush to place the product on the under eye and then use my ring finger to blend the product.
  • It tends to set very fast so we need to be very quick in blending it.
  • Follow it up with the concealer and powder.

Last Words: I recommend Kryolan Brush-On Concealer in shade 6 to everyone suffering from very deep dark circles. If you have lighter circles you can avoid this product. The best thing about this concealer is that it doesn’t feels heavy at all. It just feels like a second skin. Owing to the quantity to be used Its going to last me for a long time, but I will definitely repurchase this.
For the people who have mild under eye circles, Under eye corrector can be made at home (DIY Under Eye Corrector).
Stay Beautiful,
