Hair Mask Basics:
For those of you who do not know what a hair mask is. Its Basically a deep conditioning treatment richer and thicker than your average hair conditioner. Its is meant to be used after shampooing your hair just like a hair conditioner. But since its very rich, its meant to be used only once a week. If you have dry, damaged and frizzy hair and if a hair conditioner doesn’t do much for you, try using a hair mask instead of conditioner.
Oriflame Beauty Studio Artist Gel Eye Liner Review
About the product:
Oriflame Beauty Studio Artist Gel Eyeliner gives the precision line of liquid eyeliner for professional and smudge-free results. The smooth texture of the gel eye liner delivers rich color and even coverage and ensures long-lasting luring eyes for up to 24 hours. It comes with a slanted brush applicator that gives smooth and flawless effects.
Price: Rs. 449 for 3g. Available online on Amazon and through representatives.
I love the packaging of this gel liner. Even though its a glass jar, its so compact, light and travel friendly. You get 3 grams of product in the jar which I feel is reasonably considering the fact that gel eyeliners dry out quickly. The glass jar is sturdy too. I’ve dropped it multiple times and its still intact.
Oriflame Beauty Studio Artist Gel Eye Liner is not jet black but its build-able. You need to layer at least 2-3 coats for an intense look. Once applied, it dries quickly. If you want to apply 2-3 coats, make sure the first coat dries first. Otherwise the application might get messy.
The gel is creamy but not creamy enough for my liking. It is thicker in consistency. Although there is a plus side to it. This means the liner dries quickly and doesn’t smudge. Oriflame Beauty Studio Artist Gel Eye Liner glides easily without any tugging. However, I particularly find it harder to create a cat eye winged look with this liner. But for regular lining, it works best.
I don’t particularly like the brush that comes with it. The brush is the size of my thumb. I find it uncomfortable to use this brush due to its handle size. I wish the gel eye liner came with a longer brush, like the Maybelline gel eye liner brush. However, the small brush is good for touch-ups or when travelling.
The liner is smudge-free and waterproof, It stays on my oily eyelids for around 8 hrs. And on my waterline, it lasts longer than a regular kohl or kajal. Oriflame Beauty Studio Artist Gel Eye Liner needs to be removed with an oil based makeup remover.
Available online on Amazon
Does not irritate my eyes.
Does not smudge easily on upper eye lids.
Not jet black, requires 3 swipes.
Not creamy enough for a winged cat liner look.
Brush that comes with it isn’t of much use.
Overall: If you new at gel eye liners, definitely try out Oriflame Beauty Studio Artist Gel Eye Liner. Its affordable, not too creamy or messy and good for sensitive skin. It a great gel liner for beginners and long lasting too.

Oriflame Very Me Cherry My Cheeks Pretty Pink Blush Review
Hello to all the Blush Addicts. Today I’m going to review Oriflame Very Me Cherry My Cheeks Blush in the shade Pretty Pink which is the latest addition to my Blush collection.
Accentuate those gorgeous cheeks with powder blush in fresh shades. Goes on smooth and soft for perfectly rosy cheeks.
Price: Rs.270 for 2 grams. Available online on Amazonand oriflame representatives.
Shelf life: 2.5 years.
Available in 2 Shades:
Oriflame Very Me Cherry My Cheeks Pretty Pink Blush is a darker shade compared to Sweet Coral and is a bright Fuchsia. The blush is finely filled and is easy to blend. It doesn’t contain any shimmer, has superb pigmentation and gives a matte finish. The Blush needs to be used with a light hand since its so highly pigmented. The shade kind of reminds me of L’oreal Lucent Magique Blush in Fuschia Flush. It fades evenly without looking patchy. The blush does not come with any mirror or applicator for touch-ups, which is the only downside I could find.
Staying power: It lasts for up to 5 hours on top of my Maybelline BB stick + compact. And about 8 hours on my MAC Prolongwear foundation (FYI: I have combination skin with dry cheeks).
Packaging: If you’re someone like me who has tonnes and tonnes of blushes and don’t actually get to finish the entire product before expiry. You’ll know how heart-breaking it is, to actually throw these beauties away. Now That’s why I love the Oriflame Very Me Cherry My Cheeks Blush. You get 2 grams of product for an affordable price. The blush is so little and easier to finish faster compared to the other gigantic blushes.
Available online on Amazon.
Matte, no shimmer.
Easy to blend.
Long staying power.
Decent quantity for a blush
Premium High Volume bristle brush evenly & effortlessly glides across the lash for fantastic impact. Your lashes are left full & healthy, while enjoying the benefits of caring ingredients for strong, spectacularly feminine lashes.
Price: Rs. 599 for 8ml. Available online on Snapdeal ,Amazon and oriflame representatives.
I love mascaras only for 2 reasons – separating and darkening lashes. That’s the only thing I look for in a mascara and not for any lengthening effect. I have medium length and non-sparse lashes. So, I choose my mascara on the basis of its brush. When I first saw Oriflame Giordani Gold Volume Delight Mascara mascara brush, I was positive that this is going to clump. But to my surprise, I has two coats without any clumping whatsoever. I generally go for only 2 coats but since I wanted to check the clumping for you guys, I tried the third coat and it did clump a little. The mascara is sweat proof but not water proof and hence easy to remove. Although, it was not mentioned anywhere in the catalog or in the packaging.
Oriflame Giordani Gold Volume Delight Mascara stays on my lashes for a good 8 hours. However I do see some fall-outs on my lower lashes. I love the formula of the mascara since its neither too thick nor too runny, just perfect consistency. So it separates and gives volume to a certain extend without clumping. Lashes look natural with this mascara. Another thing I like about Oriflame Giordani Gold Volume Delight Mascara is its slim and slender packaging. The wand is long which makes it easy to apply. Also the design of the corner bristles is such that its covers bottom and corner lashes very well, unlike other mascaras. Oriflame Giordani Gold Volume Delight Mascara is my second favourite after L’oreal Million lashes mascara.
In the below pictures, I haven’t used an eyelash curler. Notice how the mascara starts clumping in the 3rd coat.
Available online on Snapdeal & Amazon.
Works well on lower and corner lashes as well.
Does not clump easily.
Easy to remove.
Gives medium volume.
Mascara is non-water proof, but this is not mentioned anywhere in the catalog or the packaging.
Beauty Gyaan (BG) Rating: 4/5
Overall Verdict:Oriflame Giordani Gold Volume Delight Mascara is a must buy if you’re looking for an everyday, non- water proof, water resistant, separating and easy to remove mascara

Oriflame More by Demi Lipsticks Review Swatches – Coral Red, Hollywood Red & Cherry Delight
Ladies today I’m going to review 3 beautiful shades from the Oriflame More by Demi Lipstick Collection. If you have ever ordered from Oriflame, you know how difficult it is to find the correct shade swatches online. You most definitely cannot rely on their brochures. Most of the times the colors turn out to be different than shown on their catalog. Oriflame has some good products but most of them have not been reviewed by beauty bloggers. When I checked online, I could hardy find any swatches of the stuff I wanted. So here I am with a review and picture loaded post with swatches to help you Ladies. Also below is the video review on my youtube channel:
Oriflame More by Demi Lipstick Shades reviewed:
Price: 680 INR for 4 grams. Available online on Amazonand through representatives.
Oriflame More by Demi Lipsticks is a premium collection inspired by the taste of Demi Moore.
These lipsticks are very rich and of good quality. They are extremely creamy and at the same time impart a shiny gloss. The formula of these lipsticks are similar to that of Mac cremesheens and amplifieds. The colors are pigmented and opaque in one coat. Thee gold packaging looks luxurious and classy. However these lipsticks come in a click pen packaging. (watch the video to see what I mean). And sometimes the lipstick opens in my bag, so its not very travel friendly.
They do bleed, so you will require a lip liner. Also Oriflame More by Demi Lipsticks do not settle in fine lines. The shades are too die for. They have a mild fragrance which does not linger. Texture of the lipsticks makes it glide effortlessly on the lips. Staying is about 5 hours without meals.
However I would recommend applying the first coat, then dabbing with a tissue and re-applying for longer wear time. The only thing I dislike about these lipsticks is their sky high price which is a lot considering Oriflame is a drugstore brand. All these 3 shades are quite loud, so if you’re someone who doesn’t wear bold lipsticks, skip these shades. Overall I’m quite happy with these lipsticks and they are my most favorite formulation compared to all others in my lipstick stash.
Coral Red: Is a beautiful orangy or tomato red shade.This one is a good dupe of MAC Lady Danger and Avon Lava love lipstick. Best described as a Marilyn Monroe type of red.Oriflame More by Demi Coral Red Lipstick looks orange in photos but the shade is actually a red with orange undertonnes.
Hollywood Red: Is a classic blood red shade. If you do not like orange tonned reds, then this is the shade for you.
Cherry Delight: Is a deep wine color.
Available online on Amazon
Amazing formulation – creamy glossy finish
Almost fragrance free
Overall Verdict : Oriflame More by Demi Lipstick range has some classy colors and superb quality. If you don’t mind the price and are a bold and creamy lipstick lover like me, its a must buy product.
