Kryolan TV Paint Stick

I can no longer resist the Kryolan temptation so I went there this morning. Again, it was still closed when I got there by 10am so I had a puff and I went back just in time for their opening, just like Monday. I think they remember me. How can they not, I was wearing the same shirt I wore last Monday when I went there. Sorry, it's my favorite shirt.

So I was supposed to buy the Youth Red blush but they do not have it in stock. So I was about to settle for the R6 blusher when I decided to check out another much-raved Kryolan product at GT which is the TV Paint Stick. I was kinda hesitant at first because it is a stick foundation and based on my experience, they melt on my oily skin and make me look disgusting. But I asked over and over again if it is good for oily skin and I was convinced to buy one. I got the FS45 shade, which is close to MAC NC30, for PHP1250. I was thrilled and my lemming for a blush was suddenly set aside, which doesn't happen everyday.

When I got home, I hurriedly washed my face and applied TV Paint Stick then set it with the Kryolan Anti-Shine Powder.

By the way, here's a swatch of the TV Paint Stick FS45 at the back of my hand.


It's almost a perfect match! FS45 is a tad dark than MAC NC30 but blends well with my skin perfectly. Plus I have to set it with the Anti-Shine Powder which sort of makes your foundation lighter so it then becomes the perfect shade.

See? (Sorry, I don't know why there is a crack on my MAC Studio FIx)

And here is moi wearing the TV Painstick and Anti-Shine Powder.
Blush- NARS Deep Throat
Lipstick- MAC Cosmo

Sorry for the under eyes, was in such a hurry I forgot to apply a concealer and fix my brows.

There you have it. It seems like the Kryolan TV Paint Stick + Anti-Shine Powder wil be my two new favorite products. My birthday gifts to myself are now complete. :)


  1. I would like to make sure if this one really is very friendly to oily skin sis? really have a hard time finding products that would tend to grand oiliness! thanks!

  2. Hi Elsa. I have oily skin and and I know exactly what you mean. So far, it's holding up pretty good. :)

    I suggest you drop by Kryolan and road test it first and see how it goes for you. :)

  3. Wow, I like it how it 'disappeared' on your skin. I think it is a perfect match.

    BTW sis, I've a tag for you:

  14. OMG, I can't believe I am afflicted too with the Kryolan disease. And incurable. Haha! Good luck to the people that will get afflicted too because of US. :P

  15. Nice, where did you buy the kryoaln goodies? pls let me know! :)

  16. Hi! Kryolan is available in Il Terrazzo, Tomas Morato. It's in Timog Circle, where Jack's Loft and Banapple is, and Rustan's Supermarket. Right across Burgoo and near Pier One. :)

  17. Hi. I came across this blog while looking for reviews for Kryolan TV paint stick. Which has better consistency/coverage as an undereye concealer, this or Cinema Secrets cream foundation? And what shade of TV Paint Stick will suit me? (I use 302-65A as foundation from Cinema Secrets. Undereye concealer should be a tad lighter I suppose) Thank you!

  18. Hi Pia. I have never used anything from Cinema Secrets and neither am I familiar with their shades. So in as much as I want to answer your question, I really can't. Sorry, dear. But I remember that I didn't have to use any concealer at all with this product and it didn't cake so I suppose this is also good as an under eye concealer. :)

  19. Woah that was a quick response. Thanks! Hmmmm....I think I better try this myself before buying...I'm tempted to buy online since it's so much cheaper (around $8.50 for the TVPS excluding shipping and taxes), but I guess it would be a waste if I get the wrong shade...

  20. Yeah, I totally agree with your decision to try it out first. That's a good decision. But if you are MAC NC25 and lower then Ivory will suit you. For MAC NC30-35, it'll be FS45. :)

  21. Wow,TV paint stick really works on yoou... i'm NC35, and still not find the right shade

  22. @*BINTANGKECIL* They have lotsa shades, a bit tricky to find a shade match. I hope you find yours soon. :)

  23. I have the same shade (and almost the sane laptop. I was shocked for a while cause I took almost the same kind of photos of my stick beside the laptop cause I'm going to be reviewing it in a while. It was like I was looking at my own pictures, lol.)
