  2. Hello lovelies, I hope April finds you all well!

    The lovely Sally from ‘Enhance Your Beauty with Oriflame’ sent me some of the Oriflame range to try. I had heard of the skincare and cosmetics company, but I had yet to try them for myself.

    The products all seem to be very reasonably priced and will suit most budgets.  Great for your day to day beauty routine and will not break the bank! Firstly, I did a bit of research about the company.

    Oriflame was Founded in 1967 by two brothers and their friend, Oriflame is now an international beauty company selling direct in more than 60 countries worldwide.  With a  wide portfolio of Swedish, natural, innovative beauty products that are marketed through a sales force of approximately 3.6 million independent consultants, who together create annual sales exceeding some €1.5 billion.

    With more than 40 years’ experience, over 100 scientists and state of the art R&D facilities, Oriflame are constantly searching for better solutions and technologies in order to create more progressive, innovative products that are consistently on-trend and meet consumer’s needs. 

    An Oriflame product’s life begins at their Skin Research Institute, where sophisticated science is used to create unique and sometimes-patented technologies that gives them the leading edge on competitors. These new technologies are then passed on to the scientists in our Product Development Centre in Dublin, Ireland, whose role it is to create a cosmetic formula that fits within an existing Oriflame brand or has the potential to begin a new one.

    So I put some of their products to the test!

     The One Matt Velvet Foundation

    This foundation is perfect for day to day use, with an SPF 20, it is perfect for protecting your skin from the daily elements.  I would avoid using for night time events if you were going to have photos taken, as SPF causes ‘Flashback’ this is where your face looks white in photos!

    A lovely lightweight liquid with a medium coverage, it gives a dewy smooth matte like finish and with Anti-Shine Technology can control shine. This is ideal for combination/oily skin types.  

    5 shades available ranging right from porcelain to warm beige 

RRP €15.

    The ONE Volume Blast Mascara Smokey

    A high impact volume mascara with deep a smokey richness. A boost Wax System plumps your lashes, the wand has smaller bristles this helps to amplify the volume of your lashes and will help to stop clumping of the product on your lashes The carbon black formula adds depth to your lashes to give a lovely dark intensity. Also a nice day to day mascara, this one is not waterproof so if you are after that protection take a look at the ‘The ONE 5-in-1 Wonder Lash Waterproof Mascara’.

    Available in one colour black RRP €11.

    The ONE 5-in-1 Colour Stylist Lipstick Intense Collection

    This collection of bold intense colour lipsticks will keep you bang on trend, by experimenting with these latest vibrant shades. Rich and nourishing lipsticks giving a semi-matte finishes and long lasting colour. Team up with a lip liner from the vast range and you are set for the night!

    Available in 10 intense vibrant colours RRP €11.

    The ONE Colour Match Eye Shadow Duo

    A silky textured, pigmented eye shadow duo with double-ended applicator. Gives a buildable coverage for a sheer or more dramatic look. I would use these shimmery shades on the lid or used wet, these shadows also double as eyeliners. Can be used to highlight the brow bone or inner corner of the eyes. 

    Available in 8 different complimentary duo shades RRP €15.
