Oriflame Royal Velvet Firming Eye Contour Cream review-Blogtober day 20

ABOUT THE PRODUCT:

Improves the appearance of under-eye circles for women 40+. Enriched with Black Iris Infusion to leave eyes feeling smoother and firmer and looking visibly younger.

  • Helps Tightens and re-contours skin around the eye
  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improves the appearance of dark circles and puffiness
  • Eyes feel smoother and firmer

My Thoughts

Another Oriflame product I tried for the first time. This one was a birthday gift from a dear friend, she loves Oriflame and always gets me something. I tried this eye cream for a week straight and here are my thoughts. Let’s dive into it!

PACKAGING

Cute cardboard box, inside there is a “how-to” manual(sometimes it’s a very needed thing). The actual eye cream tube is very well made, from sturdy plastic, and looks expensive.

TEXTURE AND QUALITY

The eye cream is thick but not extra thick, and that’s very nice. The cream has no scent, and it feels light under the eyes. Weirdly enough there is very fine glitter in the cream, don’t know if it helps with anything, but it’s here. Of course, it’s too early to say but, my undereye feels much smoother and a little bit lighter, so that’s amazing. Another great thing, it’s not greasy. I have a problem with too greasy eye creams, sadly it breaks me out. That’s why eye creams usually are a very big hit or miss, but this was a hit(for now).

OVERALL

Overall a good product and I would highly encourage you to try it for yourself,and…it makes a great gift for any mom/aunt/grandmother.

 Pros  

  • A cute packaging
  • Not greasy
  • Doesn’t have a scent

Cons

  • can be expensive

3 Ways to Edit Your Photos for Newbies-Blogtober day 8

Hello, My Darlings! It’s day 8 of Blogtober and we are talking Photo editing. Have you ever struggled with photo editing? Or you don’t know anything about it? Here are some easy-to-use apps and programs. Hope you find it helpful

Use Presets for Lightroom

This is my new obsesion ,so easy to use and your photos always look AMAZING.So what’s a preset?It’s a pre-made lightroom app settings for your photos. Very easy to put in your app or on computer. You can buy really cheap presets on Etsy (I got mine under 1 euro)or you can find some free ones on the internet.

Free Program PhotoScape

This is still my go-to for photo editing! It’s free, easy to use, and has lots of good settings to play with. Fun fact -this was my first program where I made my blog banner and signature card. You can download it here free.

Snow or Facetune

I use Snow for my bookstagram, it has so many fun filters and settings. You can even edit short videos with it. It’s free and easy to use. Totally recommend. Facetune is pretty similar, but not as fun. So try both of those to find the perfect fit.

Hello My Darlings!How are you?How’s your summer going?July was A LOT(more about it here). Did some hikes(about one of them you can read here). And now,let’s dive into the post.I haven’t done this for some time but here we go…It’s MY FAVORITES OF THE MONTH TIME.

eberhard-grossgasteiger-NvesrDbsrL4-unsplash

L’oreal BB c’est magic cream

I got it from my friend, it was the wrong color match for her(in Latvia you can’t exchange cosmetic products) and she was like-You are super pale, here you go. And if you know me, I always love to try new products. So…I loved this one. It’s not oily and doesn’t break me out. The color is not the best match( I have Light), but in the summer it’s good.

From Martin Luther’s Wittenberg Theses by Meika Roth-Beka and Klauss Enzikat

This was very interesting. It’s a short story of Martin Luther and his Theses that changed the Christian world. It’s a picture book, but it’s not for children(I would say it’s for ages 12 and up). It would be a good supplement for history lessons.

MY THOUGHTS :

I have an oily scalp,but dry ends. So seeing this shampoo I knew I needed to try it. So I did! For a month I tried it and here are my thoughts.

PACKAGING

Pretty simple pink plastic bottle with a black cap. The bottle is translucent,so that’s nice, you can see how much of the product is still left.

QUALITY AND SCENT

It smells amazing! Such a beautiful scent that stays on your hair for hours after washing. The quality is very good.The shampoo is thick and you don’t need a lot of product too really clean your hair(and that’s good).

MY HAIR AFTER MONTH OF USE

My hair feels strong, but not super healthy. It’s a good shampoo, but it’s not my favorite. It did help my scalp with the excess oil. Will I repurchase it? Yes, but only at a discount.

Overall

PROS  
  • long-lasting
  • great for everyday use
  • Affordable
CONS
  • Not a lot of product
  • Packaging is hard to recycle because of the color

Official Focallure Aliexpress store: You can find this powder here 

My thoughts :

PACKAGING

It came in a brand box with a seal, so you know it’s new and not opened before. It had the sticker with the scratch code of authenticity (just like mascara had). The “jar” is made from very sturdy plastic and the puff is of great quality. So I’m happy with the packaging.

 

QUALITY AND HOW IT APPLIES

I got the color 01 Ivory(Fa-15) and it’s perfect for my pale nordic skin. It’s a very light powder that really is perfect for oily skin, it keeps you matt ALL DAY. But…if you have some dry spots, it’s not for you it will not look good(trust me). I apply it with my powder brush from Aliexpress, but you can totally use the puff (I sometimes do it, when I’m at my boyfriend’s house and have forgotten the brush).

Overall I love this powder and have tried the 02 Natural color some years ago, at that time it was too dark for me, but I loved the texture…and I can say it’s still the same great quality. Can’t wait to try more stuff from this brand(I’m slowly getting obsessed)

PROS  
  • long-lasting
  • Perfect for oily skin
  • Affordable
  • Great gift idea
  • Travel friendly
CONS
  • it can “wash” you out
  • Not good for dry skin

You can Find this product here :Aliexpress

My thoughts :

PACKAGING

The mascara came in a beautiful sealed box with all the ingrediant list and information. The actual mascara tube is made from very sturdy plastic.I really like that the parts Lashprimer and Mascara are labeled.

On the box you can find a QR code and scratch number to make sure your product is original . Such a great idea and truly ,mine was original!And of course the “best before” is a good thing too.

QUALITY AND HOW IT APPLIES

The first you put on Primer. I do around 3/4 coats of it on my lashes. It has little fibers in it ,and they do get into your eyes. It’s not the most pleasant experience,but it’s nothing critical.

After it, we get to the mascara. The want looks pretty average, but the way it’s curved…that’s something new. It’s slightly angled, so you can really get into the corners of your eyes.

What can I say about the application…it’s easy but time-consuming. It’s not bam and ready. You truly need like 5 min just for the mascara(and even more if you are using the primer), and in the mornings sometimes it’s not an option. Another not the greatest thing…it’s messy. But, it’s truly waterproof…like you can go swimming with it and it’s still in your eyes! And it tear-proof(I tested it a few times…don”t ask)

PROS  
  • long-lasting
  • Waterproof
  • Affordable
  • Great gift idea
  • Travel friendly
CONS
  • It’s messy

Overall I really like it and liked it!It’s such a great mascara for summer.
