Oriflame- The One

New product launches from Oriflame always excite me as I can pretty much guarantee it’s going to be good. Recently they launched a range of products called “The One” and although I couldn’t attend the launch event I was lucky enough to be sent some products from the range to review.
The One brings the latest fashion and beauty trends from around the world with three ranges that cater to all your makeup needs. With names such as High Impact, Everyday Beauty and Longwear it’s easy to pick and choose products that suit you and how you choose to live.
The products I was sent came from the High Impact range, designed to create a bold statement and impressive finishes. This is the range I was most interested in to be honest, I like my products to make a bit of a statement, although Longwear and Everyday Beauty also appeal. Basically, I want everything.
First up was the Colour Impact cream eyeshadows in Beige Pearl and Intense Plum. These are really lovely and apply like a dream both with a gentle finger tip or an eyeshadow brush. Beige Pearl made a brilliant base for powder shadows and also looked great alone with a flick of black liner. Intense Plum is a stunning purple shade and initially goes on quite sheer so you can build it up to get the look you desire. My only gripe was that these did tend to crease towards the end of the day, but I find that with every cream shadow on me so I don’t hold it against this specific shadow.
Next came the Power Shine lipstick in Red Ovation; a lovely orange toned red that is so on trend for Spring/Summer. I’m always a bit shy when it comes to red lips but this built up from a really sheer gloss to a much stronger colour with ease so I could take baby steps in to the world of a bold lip.
Last but not least came the Volume Blase mascara. I didn’t actually hold out much hope for this as I’m not a fan of this type of mascara brush at all. It was a pleasing surprise when this turned out to be up to the usual Oriflame standards though and two coats later I had dramatic, volumatic lashes with no clumping. I love it when a product exceeds expectations and this one certainly did!
Overall this is another stunner of a range from Oriflame, is there anything they can’t do? I’d love to try some products from the other two ranges, and if I do I’ll share my thoughts on the blog. Which products would you most like to try? Oh, and any tips for wearing cream eyeshadows without creasing?

  1. Primer under cream shadows should help them stop creasing :). I need to check out the beige pearl shade for a base!
