it's near the bottom of the page, they also have a waterproof version available

As you can see in the pic above, the eyeshadows w/ the Kryolan CEL Sealant is more pigmented than the Studio Direct one.

I tested both with a cotton swab. More product comes off from the Studio Direct Sealant. 
I swiped the cotton swab across all 3 eyeshadows. 

What I like about the Kryolan v. Studio Direct CEL Sealant:
- Stays put all day for me
- After it dries, the eyeshadow feels very soft and smooth
- Even after multiple times of wiping my hands on the shadows, they lasted
- Did not crease at all on my oiling eyelids
- Did not cake up or crack

What I like about the Studio Direct CEL Sealant:
- Larger size, more product
- cheaper price
- easier to get

 All in all I prefer the Kryolan CEL Sealant!
After a couple of hours the Studio Direct CEL Sealant started to crease up and the shadows faded. After it dries, it feels dry and it's not as soft/smooth as the Kryolan. It is more expensive, but it is worth it!!!! I've been using the Kryolan CEL Sealant for all my eyeliners in my recent makeup looks.

Here are some pics of me using the Kryolan CEL Sealant.

I wore these makeup looks for 8+ hours, that's through sweating and having teary eyes.

What do you guys think???
Thanks for stopping by!
