MY VIEWS:The moment you open the tub,you can smell coconut fragrance.It isnt OTT but very subtle and pleasant.The balm has a very lightweight and smooth texture.It is easy to apply on dry skin and it gets absorbed easily.The results are instant.I apply this on my cuticles and they get softer.My lips are no more dry.My elbows,knees ,heels get instant hydration when I apply this over them or on any other dry area.I use this on my daughter as well and she loves it.The formula is non-greasy.It is a bit harder as of now during winters but it melts a bit during summer season.My only problem is the small mouth and tub type packaging as I have to take out the balm through fingers which I don’t like. Other than that,there is nothing that I don’t like in this!!

SHADE:Deep black.

MY VIEWS:I love mascara as they complete the eye look.I am sure every girl seconds this!!I have tried many mascaras from Oriflame.This one is the newly launched in The One colllection.The mascara is aimed at providing volume to lashes.I prefer such mascara only.The first thing that you notice when you try this is the ease in application.The formula is so good.It is neither heavy nor too gloopy.The consistency is just right.Also,it doesnt make my lashes hard when it dries.The lashes does get conditioning.

???????????????????????????????

Secondly,the bristles of the wand are placed appropriately and the length of the wand applicator is perfect so that I can apply the mascara on small,inner lashes as well without messing up the entire look.On application,I do see immediate results as my lashes get a good amount of volume(almost 2x).I would call this volumizing as well as lengthening mascara.It separates and coats each lash beautifully.The mascara dries up within 5-10 seconds which is great as I can put a second layer for added volume. I can see my lower lashes getting volume as well as length.You Can see in the before/after pics as well!!

The formula is smudge-proof  and waterproof.I have used this for about 7-8 hours and it stayed nicely.It comes off easily with a mild cleanser which is a great advantage as the eye area is very sensitive.I generally remove my eye makeup with baby oil though!!

???????????????????????????????

MY VIEWS:The gloss has a thick consistency.However,ti applies with ease and spreads evenly on lips.The formula is hydrating and keeps the lips moisturised.My lips feel soft.It doesn’t accentuate dry flaky lips neither accentuate them.The formula is great for those having dry lips.

???????????????????????????????

The gloss has mild fruity fragrance that is appealing and fades away soon.The shade is sheer when applied on lips.It leaves a rosy tint than colour.It stays for about 3 hours on lips.I would call this more of a tinted lip balm than gloss as it lacks colour and staying power.

RATING:3/5

Oriflame Giordani Gold Mineral Eyeshadow-Topaz Brown review,swatches & EOTD

???????????????????????????????

ABOUT:Exceptionally light mineral eyeshadow with an incredibly soft texture. Contains precious amethyst for intensified colour that’s gentle on your skin. Preservative and fragrance-free.

PACKAGING:The packaging is really classy and luxurious with a dull gold round body having Giordani logo on the transparent lid.The shade can be seen through.The shade name and code is provided at the bottom of the packaging.I am not sure but I think it comes with a small applicator that I guess,mine is lost.

015

016

014

swatch

swatch

MY VIEWS:The texture of the powder eyeshadow is smooth and non-gritty.You can feel the difference when you touch it.I can somehow differentiate this mineral eyeshadow from normal powder shadows.It is silky smooth and blends like a dream.However,due to this texture of the shadow,it sheers out easily and has to be swiped 2-3 times to get proper shade on lids.It has fine shimmer which is very minute and provides nice finish to the shade.

???????????????????????????????

???????????????????????????????

The shade is decently pigmented but it being a light shade plus the soft formula makes it sheer.However,on lids it looks beautiful and I believe it will a skin shade for many while providing shimmery effect so great for office wear or occasions where you don’t want much color on lids.It stays for about 5-6 hours and is easy to work with other shadows as well.I sometimes,use it as a highlighter for lids and it works well there too!!

???????????????????????????????

RATING:3.75/5

RECOMMENDATION:I highly recommend this eyeshadow to those who prefer wearing neutral shades.The formula and the finish is great.The quality of the eyeshadow is amazing.

THE FORMULA AND PERFORMANCE:The texture of the foundation is smooth.It is slightly thick but blends well and sinks into the skin without leaving any patches behind.It  is lightweight and very comfortable on skin.The foundation settles to a matte finish.It provides light to medium coverage while evening out my face and brightening it.Minor skin issues are concealed with a second layer but major skin problems like pigmentation and acne need extra concealing.

before-after

before-after

The matte effect stays for about 2-3 hours on my face after while I can see my T-zone shiny.It never broke me out neither does it clog pores.The foundation is good for oily skin and you can always apply some compact after few hours.However,I found that this does transfer to other objects(cellphone) if you sweat.

???????????????????????????????

RATING:3.5/5

RECOMMENDATION:I like the formula and the feel.The shade is a great match for my skin and it brightens up my face.However,the staying power is low and it transfers to other objects.I suggest trying this out if you are looking for a medium coverage foundation in matte finish on a budget!!

MY VIEWS:The texture of the cream foundation is very smooth.It definitely feels velvety and spreads easily on face.It has creamy formula which is hydrating.The foundation is light weight and comfortable on skin even in this hot humid climate.It doesn’t accentuate dry flaky skin and even out my complexion to as great extent providing medium to build able coverage.It hides redness and pigmentation marks too very nicely.The finish is dewy on application which gets matte after few minutes.However,I recommend this foundation for dry to combination skin type as it can make oily skin tone a bit greasy. It has SPF 15 which is great as it does provide protection but at the same time,it wont provide a white cast under flash.
