I was invited to the Oriflame Cosmetics event and got a huge goody bag of a bunch of their products. View my review and first impressions of the products I got below!

DSC_0033 (800x533)This is a hand and nail cream made with almond oil. I have been using it for the past one week and it is fantastic. I carry it everywhere I go now. Can’t leave home without it.

DSC_0037 (800x533)Sunscreen! Yes, yes please! Haven’t tried it out yet but I am so excited about it!

DSC_0043 (800x533)Perfume. This one is called Voyager and it smells wonderful. Love it.

I picked up some lipsticks and added them to my goody bag. They have a satin finish and incredible color but you really have to apply it over and over again to get the best of it. This color is called Always Cranberry.

DSC_0052 Swatches of the color on my hand and lips. It’s very patchy and you have to work extra hard to get the color payoff you want.

DSC_0053 (800x533)This lipstick is called Pink Unlimited. It’s a bit too bright for me so I prefer Always Cranberry.

DSC_0056 (800x533)

DSC_0057Patchy again. And I wanted to like these so much.

DSC_0061 (800x533)A double ended black and white eye pencil. Genius and works like a charm.

DSC_0062 (800x533)Liquid eyeliner. This has been the only liquid liner pen I have used that gave me a perfect cat eye. It was too too perfect.

DSC_0064 (800x533)

DSC_0065 (800x533)Has amazing staying power. Once it dried, it stayed put.

DSC_0068 (800x533)Take a peek at that wing!

DSC_0072 (800x533)Eyeshadow. Oriflame eyeshadows are cream based but apply as a powder. This color is called Shimmering Steel.

DSC_0073 (800x533)It’s a cross between grey and green. It’s very pigmented.

DSC_0074 (800x533)Check out that color!

DSC_0078 (800x533)Mascara. Nothing really extraordinary about it.

DSC_0079 (800x533)

DSC_0080 (800x533)Foundation. This is where Oriflame fucked up with me.

How do you expand to a country with darker skin tones and only have ONE freaking shade? One shade for everyone in Nigeria?! Too too poor Oriflame. What’s your point? You could have just developed a range of shades and then launched it. Na, not cool.

DSC_0082 (800x533)

So Oriflame has some hits and misses with me. The eyeshadow, eye liner, eye pencil, and the skin products get an A+ from me.The lipsticks get a C from me. The mascara is bleh, normal things. The foundation just makes me angry.

You can buy Oriflame Cosmetics via a Oriflame Consultant and you can find a consultant near you on their website – http://ng.oriflame.com

Or you can visit them at their store at 43 Adeniyi Jones, Ikeja, Lagos

Stay fab!
