I came across the new limited edition display by Alverde. The collection is called My Best Friend. I swatched almost everything in the store (there were no testers for the gel eyeliners) and at the end I “only” bought three lipsticks. I mean, the eyeshadow palettes were heavily pigmented and they felt nice. I was tempted to buy at least one, but I have to admit that the color combinations within each palette are awful. The colors just don’t play well together. So I didn’t buy any. I also barely resisted buying a gel eyeliner. Two of the shades were gorgeous, but since the last gel eyeliners Alverde made weren’t good, I resisted and didn’t buy a single gel eyeliner. So I was left with the lipsticks, which were a complete surprise to me. I know that Alverde’s lipsticks tend to be drying, but these are creamy and don’t dry your lips. There are six shades in the collection and all of them are cremes (no shimmer). They all seem to have the same consistency. They are well pigmented. Don’t expect wonders but for me these are perfectly pigmented for everyday use. And you can build color by applying more coats. All the colors in the collection are extremely wearable. As I wrote before I bought three shades and I might go back and buy more, because these are really really nice lipsticks for only 3,30€ and with NATRUE certificate if I’m not mistaken.

Here’s what I bought …

For those of you who are familiar with the collection … What do you think about the new Alverde lipsticks? And what do you think about the eyeshadow combinations? And what about gel eyeliners? Are they worth buying or not?

And for those, who aren’t familiar with the collection … How do your like the lipsticks I bought?

  1. Danes sem si kupila tri šmike iz te kolekcije in sem se odločila ravno za tiste tri, ki jih ti nimaš (118, 121, 123). :lips: So mi všeč, ker so nude odtenki. :wub:

  2. I like the Alverde lipsticks. I bought Jasminer and Tanju.
    I also like the eyeliner Sunny and I really hope that it won’t dry out as fast as the ones of their last limited edition did.
