Long time, no...nothing! ;;) Finally, some well deserved rest for me and what do i do, i write some much postponed posts. So I'll start with these swatches. And like the maniac that i am, took lots of pictures with the lipsticks until i was sure you will be able to see their real colors. It's my first review for make-up products so if you feel that i've left something out or you'd like to know something more please let me know.
Initially i wanted to begin with the Oriflame lipstick but i changed my mind and I'll do the Farmasi one first. So...i have been searching lately for the perfect corai lipstick to go with my Oriflame coral nail polish. I told you i was in love with that color and decided that having it on my nails wasn't enough. I had to have it on my lips as well :D But did i think that a corai matte lipstick was hard to find? No, of course, but man, how wrong i was! So i looked, and looked...at first i just showed the vendors my nails but couldn't find anything
and the second time i went, the nails were a different color. Everywhere i asked for a corai lipstick i was showed colors more on the red-ish side, and i always asked for something more orange, but nothing. Oh, the drama! Even if i didn't have the my nails for comparison i felt it wasn't that color plus i didn't liked how they looked on me. Finally, after an exam i went to IDM, and there i found my perfect corai lipstick to go with my corai nails: Farmasi True Color no. 7. And i like it very much, it's perfect! :D And creamy, with a matte finish (just how i like it), nourishing enough not to dry my lips. And the price: 6 ron (on their online shop) and i got it at 7 ron (as I've also said here)
Moving on to the Oriflame lipstick. First mentioned it here and Joice was pretty excited about the idea behind it, a 3 in 1 lipstick and i told her i would say a little something about it. I'm not that excited about the lipstick, mainly because i don't wear make-up appropriate for this color but when I'll start some experimenting with make-up, I'll try to find an easy one just perfect for it. So it's called a triple core lipstick because it has: matte lipstick, lip balm and lipstick with little glittery particles. It's the special edition of the triple core lipstick, thus the little heart :D and the color is Love Pink. I noticed that Avon has a lipstick with lipgloss and i guess this is the "counter punch". I think the guys at Oriflame were: "Oh no, look at Avon's lipstick, 2 in 1, what can we do about it? I know! Let's do a 3 in 1 lipstick! Beat this Avon!" :))) I've seen the product in Oriflame's catalogue and the it looks way more pigmented than it looked on my lips. Basically i think it has a sort of lip gloss finish without being sticky and because of the lip balm component it will nourish your lips. Price: 16 ron (currently) but the normal price is 27 ron
In conclusion i like them both and as i am not sure if i am going to buy another Triple Core i will surely get some Farmasi lipsticks and some other goodies.
