A little while ago I was introduced to Oriflame products, and I was very impressed by the brands performance, I used their makeup all through out Autumn. One of the lines I had tried was the Giordani Gold, the Bronzing pearls are to die for and I was keen to try some more products from the luxury higher end line within the Oriflame family. Luckily I was sent two new products from the Giordani Gold collection, and I put them straight to the test.
Giordani Gold Age Defying Compact Foundation €20.75
Now if there is one thing I would love to defy it would be age. Anything that promises to ward off the tell tale signs that I am not in my 20's anymore will be welcome in my makeup bag. This foundation is a cream that I applied to my skin with a flat top kabuki brush (Sigma f80) I found it easier to blend this way than using the sponge provided.
The coverage is medium, but could be built up to cover any redness in the skin or to hide the old broken veins around the nose. When blended in to the skin it leaves a lovely velvety finish, almost like you had already used a powder, and this feature was perfect for controlling my oily skin, but, was still moisturising and hydrating and could be suitable for mature dry skin.
The light wasn't great for my before and after photo's, but hopefully you will get the gist.
The Anti-Ageing part of this foundation works by using ingredients that stimulate collagen with in turn strengthens the skin and improves elasticity.
Giordani Gold Panorama Mascara €18.75
I spoke before here on the blog about ridiculous and awkward shaped mascara wands that don't work on my lashes, but this ain't one of them. The Christmas tree shaped brush is fantastic for grabbing every single lash from corner to corner. When brushed through the lash, it separates and stretches them giving them a long and fluttery look.
The formula, will also ward off the signs of ageing, it coats each lash in its fortifull lash complex, which strengthens and thickens weak flimsy lashes.
