Hidden inside a back corridor on the ground floor of Mylapore's Chennai Citi Centre Mall is the Kryolan Store. Brightly lit with white lights, white furnishing and minimal geometric props, the store just calls you inside to explore. Upon entering, the first thing you will be treated is their pillar with glass shelf featuring funky eyelashes. From curling, simple black ones to feather and rhinestone-studded, these lashes are one-of-a-kind and come in hues of fluorescent, white and pink!
As we went in further, we were treated with a stack of aesthetically pleasing colourful eye shadows. Bright colours, muted colours as well as glitters to bling your eyes with - Kryolan has options for every personality and look. You can find individual colours as well as eye shadow palettes. Presented on the side walls are their compacts, concealers, foundations and primers. They have a special range called "Body Camouflage" which you can use to conceal marks, blisters and dark spots easily. They also have a series of body paints if you are into Avante-garde makeup. Belonging to the acrylic paint category, these are widely used for concept photoshoots.
The Kryolan store here even has its own range of makeup brushes. They have separate brushes to apply body paints as well. If you are looking for lipsticks, then they have soft and velvety ones. They have the options for matte lipsticks, lip glosses, liquid lipsticks and even lip glitter. They have a number of makeup removers as well! Contour, bronzer or highlighters, they have a range of variety to choose from whether you want a creamy mousse or a powder. You can have your look in place with their make up setter sprays. For men, they have stick-on beards and moustaches.
That's not it. This particular Kryolan store also hosts extensive makeup workshops regularly. They have a separate classroom inside the store where they invite guest artists from across the country.
