I went on trip to Klagenfurt (Austria) and came back richer for couple of Alverde Natur Kosmetik (DM brand) items.
Eyeshadows come in pretty colors, but are poorly pigmented. I decided to try out green shade. On the left side is Creme Lidschatten 01 Lindgrun. I’ll be using it as eyeshadow base. Next to it is Duo Lidschatten 26 Green Dream.

Lately, I like cream blushes … a lot. Alverde CremeRouge 02 Soft Copper is the prettiest in my collection.
Lipstick is stiffer, so application is little heavier, but because of its stiffness sticks better. Shade is called 02 Shiny Terra.
Mascara looks nice, but I’ll wright more after I throughly test it. I was impressed with of Kajal Eyeliner – 03 Braun. It glides on, but has probably less staying power because of it.
Swatch of eyeliner and lipstick. Beautiful!

Lip glosses: Pink and Ruby Red
Details were taken from picture of packaging – shimmer is not this visible in gloss it self … which I like.
Glosses are not sticky and they are moisturizing. Pink is less pigmented than Ruby Red. Ruby gives your lips pretty natural look. They’re both shimmery you can’t feel so it’s not disturbing. Glosses don’t have any taste, which is big plus in my book, but they do have nice sweet fruity smell. Staying power is nothing to brag about, but in general I’m satisfied with them and use them a lot.
Kajal Eyeliner – Grün and Creme Lidschatten – Lindgrün
I have no complaints about eyeliner – it’s soft and nicely spreadable. Color is just amazing. I too use cream eyeshadow as eyeshadow base.
Goga donated photos and review of Lidschatten-Basis eyeshadow primer. She’s not very satisfied with it: base feels like cream when applied, it dries quickly, eyeshadows don’t stick to it and on top of all – it doesn’t stop creasing.
Alverde products are affordable and we hope they’ll be available in Slovenia in near future. Mascaras already reached us.
