Product review: lancôme lipsticks

I had been home for a while and did not go out at all(like I literarily did not see the sun). Being home and alone for a long time has a way of making one mellow down, it’s like you become calmer and sobber. So there I was, looking for something a bit exciting. I decided to see a movie. I saw chappie (its a movie about how one geek created a robots with feelings and all), very emotional. I did not like the way I was feeling so I decided to see another one, just to wash away the effect of the first one. Behold I saw “if I stay”. I don’t know if you’ve seen the movie but if you have you would get what I’m saying. It was worse than “the fault in our stars”. I mean I went from one emotional movie to an extremely emotional movie. I was crying. I just kept crying. I could not get myself together, I cried till I slept. I honestly don’t know who sent me message, I would have just stayed on my own and enjoy the calmness of the day.

Product to be reviewed: Lancôme lipsticks.

Lancome is a well known cosmetic brand under the parent brand L’oréal. It has been in existence since 1935. It is known for its quality and uniqueness. Many top makeup artist trust and recommend this brand.
I was super excited when I received this. I was not expecting it. Although I was told I would get a gift I just did not think it would be lancôme’s product.


Pros

This product is absolutely beautiful. The colours are unique and blend excellently with the skin. When I applied it I almost thought it was a lip balm. It did not hue my lips too much ( I had to apply several layers so it will show well in my pictures). Beautiful colors beautiful blend. If you like your look natural…this brand is for you.

Peach thread. 138

So, my face is usually not this rough. I took this picture when i was yet to have a bath. Plus I’ve been stressed lately.


Con’s

This brand might not be readily available. It is also quite pricy, so of you are on a student budget like me….well you’ve got to save up. If you like your lipstick all thick and dry you will not like this lipstick. It has a glossy feel (like a balm. It keeps the lips moisturized). If you also like your lipstick with solid colors that announce themselves… This won’t make you happy as it tends to blend with the skin without showing any sign of hue.

Berry silhouette. 393

I don’t know why my big nose decided to photo bomb.


Packaging

The packing is quite simple. A little dull if you ask me. It just comes in a silver box with the brands name printed on it in black. As plain as it can be. No fun colors no attractive graphics.


Quality

May I mention that this product is made in Paris. If you are into fashion you should know that beauty products made in Paris never fall short when it comes to quality. This is a beautiful piece of cosmetic. Quality to the last


Price

This lipstick is not very affordable. The brand itself is not very affordable. Like I said earlier if you are on a student budget like me you will have to save up to buy yourself these products. The lipsticks are sold at the range of 4500 – 5000 naira.(don’t look at your phone like that, I told you they were not that affordable).



Conclusion

The Lancôme brand is an excellent one. It has proven itself over the years. Never dropping in quality but rather it keeps getting better and better with every release. If you can afford to treat yourself to any of their beauty products ( not just makeup now) I’d advice that you do not hesitate. You won’t regret it.

Product review: Oriflame hydrating body lotion

Last week was the most mentally stressful week I’ve had in a long time. I was so tired I started talking crap. I told my sister to try the honey sugar exfoliant (will put up how to make and use this soon) because she kept complaining about how her skin was. Few days later the change was so obvious, her skin was looking way better. Because of my stressed stated I asked her 

“How does your feel skill”

Instead of “how does your skin feel”

She had a good laugh. And that is just one of the many trash I kept saying all week.

I’m so hoping this does not repeat it self. Stress is not good.

Product to be reviewed: oriflame hydrating body lotion.

I got this product as a gift(technically it was given to my mum…but you know how these things go). I have been using it now for almost Two months and my skin can feel the difference. Even during the harmattan season, this product was a skin saver.
The oriflame hydrating body lotion is not a made in Nigeria product. It is made in Poland. Oriflame is a Swedish brand, well know for its verity of body product which have been tested and proven to be top quality stuff.

Pros

The orifalme hydrating body lotion is amazing. It contains sesame oil which helps the skin to remain soft. It also moisturizes for 24hrs, your skin will feel no form of dryness all day. This product won my heart as it is not perfumed so much but has a soft sweet fragrance.

Cons

I don’t have any major con. The only thing I can say is the product is not readily available everywhere.

Price

This product is quite pricy but is worth every penny. It is sold for 3450 – 5000 naira. (I know its expensive. But its a really good product).

Quality

The oriflame brand is known for its quality. This product does not fall short when it comes to that. The ingredients used are all skin friendly and of great quality.

Packaging

The product comes in a 400ml sized bottle. It has a very simple and minimal look. Not too many colors or disturbing graphics. Just minimal and simple. Perfect.

Conclusion

The orifalme brand is not a new one when it comes to beauty products. They have been in existence for a hundred years now. It is a trusted . the hydrating body lotion is one of the most amazing body lotions I have laid my hand on. It might be a bit too pricy for some people but in must say it is worth every penny.
