ORIFLAME Freebies review!

Aj Bartlett, a consultant for Oriflame was a massive sweetheart and sent me a load of freebies to review for you. I am going to put them in order of my favourite to my least favourite and tell you my pro’s and con’s for each of these products, so lets get to it!

1# Coming in at first place is the Matte control foundation in ‘[Natural beige’ £9.95.

Pro’s: Full coverage

No shine in sight.

Lasts all day


Left my face feeling silky smooth all day.


I wish it was in a bigger bottle!

2# Lip crayon in ‘Electric red’ £8.95


High shine

Moisturized my lips

Glides on easily

Smells amazing

Very bright and pigmented


Would prefer it if the colour twisted up but it needs to be sharpened

3# Eyeliner stylo in ‘Black’ £6.95


Really easy to use with its pen applicator

Dries within milliseconds!


Not very pigmented

Already running out after just over a week

4# Triple core lipstick in ‘Faith’ £10.95


3 in 1 Lipbalm, gloss and lipstick


Has vitamin e and avocado in the formula


Not pigmented enough.

5# Pure colour eyeshadow palette in ‘Nude/grey’ £12.95


A lot of workable colours


All colours have a grey undertone

Not all colours come out the way they lookj in the palette.

5# Professional foundation brush £7.95

I don’t really have any pro’s about this brush, its synthetic and leaves foundation streaky but i would use it for face painting or special fx.

A big thankyou to Aj Bartlett for her kindness it really is appreciated, if you would like to make an Oriflame order with Aj then please contact her on 07432158844 or add her on facebook.

Going bananas over Ben Nye luxury banana powder!

Banana powder has been raved about by makeup artists and enthusiasts especially after Kim Kardashian’s makeup artist revealed he uses it on her to set her under eye concealer, to get the super highlighted under eye. So after watching many YouTube videos I decided it was time I got my hands on some. I purchased mine from Ebay as that was the only place that I personally could find that sells it in the UK, I bought the 1.5oz pot and including p&p it came to around £12, you can purchase this also from Camera ready cosmetics although you do have to pay for shipping from America but I am pretty sure it works out the same price as what I paid for mine.

So Banana powder is a very finely milled translucent matte face powder that is yellow based and although is used for setting makeup it is also beautiful as a highlight, which I mainly use it  for. I apply it with my beauty blender, I wet it first then apply it under my eyes, forehead and cheekbones, I apply about two layers of powder and it doesn’t look cakey or crease it just gives your skin a flawless, highlighted fresh finish.

It comes in different sizes and colours you can get it in either 1.50z, 3oz or 8oz and the colours come in Banana, Beige suede, buff and cameo.


I would definitely recommend this to everyone, there is nothing I dislike about this powder, it is just beautiful in every way and very cheap! What more could you want?
