Oriflame Triple Core - 3D Lipstick Review


 When I see make-up ads on the television the sceptic in me isn't always convinced by the claims made by various brands - you know the ones, where mascara can give you thicker full lashes, and lipstick that makes your lips plumper. There may be science behind the claims, but I personally haven't seen that much difference when I've tried out different lipsticks and lip glosses in the past.

So when I was invited to try out Oriflame's Triple Core 3D lipstick, I wasn't convinced I'd get the "optical illusion of fuller lips" that the catalogue promised. I did relish the chance to try out a new Oriflame product though, as Mum used to go to Oriflame parties, and I even delivered their catalogues around my local area for a while.

There are five different shades available ranging from Berry Pink, to Red Coral and Nude Peach. From looking at the pictures in the catalogue, I would pretty much try all the shades, but the one that arrived in the post for me to try was Berry Pink.

My first impression was one of surprise as I was expecting something a darker with hues of red or purple in the pink after looking at the catalogue photo's, but this is a more girly pink colour.

There's a darker outer core, what they call a silver shade middle core, and a lighter inner core. I first put it on when I went to the Fling Festival and have worn it quite a few times since.

Good things - I still loved the shade although it wasn't the colour I expected, and it feels nice on my lips, so I think it would be good to wear whatever the weather, with a soothing/moisturising feel. And yes my lips did actually look a little plumper - so it does deliver on illusion as well.

Bad Things - I think you have to play around a little using different edges of the stick to get the desired result, and sometimes apply twice to get an all over coverage. I don't think it has the staying power that some of my lip glosses do, as I've had to reapply when I've worn it out.

Overall result - the product seems like it will last me a long time, and although the lipstick does soak in and need re-applying, I do like the shade choices, and would consider buying another colour as a beauty treat - at the launch price of £7.95. I think the price point of £10.95, which it may well go up to in the future, is a bit high.

Action Themed Handmade Card - Daring Cardmakers Challenge

Hi Everyone, Hope you're all having a good week! Just want to say thanks to all of you that have been reading and commenting on my blog posts, especially the recent craft ones, joining in with the Daring Cardmakers challenges. I don't always have time to blog along, but this week the theme was 'action', and it was the perfect excuse to make a card with a topper kit I have had laying around for ages. The card I made is perfect for sports fans of all ages, and as a big diving fan, I'm sure this one will be a lot of fun for all. My main image and some of the extra bits are from a Hunkydory kit, I just love the image of the guy diving and his reflection shown in the water.  Copyright 2017 - These City Days I found some aperture cards in my stash and I'm enjoying decorating round the edges and adding some dimension to the designs. This time I went for a few sentiments, stars punched from holographic card, and some jute twine from Baker Ross.  I am slight

Cake Of The Week - Weetabix Loaf Cake (Guest Post)

  Have you had your Weetabix?!   As promised in last week's post, I bring you a healthy cake ( well as healthy as cake can be!) that is full of fibre, uses no fat, contains one of your five a day, and is as cheap as chips to make.

Daring Cardmakers - Trim The Tree Craft Challenge - Cross Stitch Card

Hi Everyone, It's the start of another week, and I'm fresh from seeing some of my favourite musical friends, for the first time in a long while, at our Christmas light switch on. I have some video, but I have never edited video clips in my life, so while I figure out what I'm doing, time to catch up on some other blog posts. I have joined in and submitted craft projects to the Daring Cardmakers Challenge before, and it's been great fun. So I just want to thank everyone who has commented on my previous posts, and add to this weeks challenge 'Trim The Tree'. I am working my way through a few small cross stitch kits from magazine free gifts, and this tree design really stuck out from my stash. It was easy and fun to stitch, and I even tweaked it a bit to add some gold glitter for the star at the top. Instead of hanging it in the supplied aperture card though, I found a plant pot topper with 25 on, and mounted it on a card just above that. The finished car
