Oriflame Giordani Gold Bronzing Pearls Natural Radiance Review, Swatches

Oriflame Giordani Gold Bronzing Face Pearls

Highlighters are like boyfriends. Each promising to do a zillion things but fall flat. Very rarely you come across one who has all the necessary ingredients qualities to bowl you over. I say don’t think twice even if you have to go to Mars to get THE one. I’m quite lucky to have been bowled over in both the categories. I can’t help you with the matrimony stuff but I can sure help you in finding your next best highlighter. Say hello to Oriflame Giordani Gold Bronzing Pearls!

Oriflame Claims Bronzing powder pearls in five hues of sun-kissed colors. Skin gets a radiant glow thanks to micronised pigments which reflect light. Use as a bronzer or a blush over face and eyes.
 
Giordani Gold is one the most promising ranges from Oriflame. Pick up anything GG and you know you are going to like it. These bronzing pearls come in 2 shades: Natural Radiance and Natural Bronze. I’m reviewing the shade Natural Radiance.
This one has pearls in two colors – pink and beige brown. The balls are powdery and soft so you just swirl a brush in the jar and apply on the cheeks. It gives this metallic sheen to your cheeks. No its NOT shimmery (I can hear a lot of sighs!) Its more of a highlighter than a blush since its not very pigmented.
It stays for around 3-4hrs and starts fading after that. With winters now not far behind, it will stay on a bit longer now. The quantity is quite decent too, 25g if I’m not wrong. I got mine last year and the photos were clicked last month. The jar has got a mirror in it so it helps on-the-go girls. I suggest you use a small blush brush with it. To get the colour you have to keep applying it but then you run the risk of looking too powdery and made up. So I just use it for that diffused glow on the apple of my cheeks and temples. I’ve a sharp nose so I don’t use it there but you can also use it on the bridge of your nose for the slimming effect.
Quickly to summarize:
  • It imparts a metallic sheen than shimmery disco ball shine
  • Can be used during the day
  • Office and college safe
  • Pretty to look at!
  • Its sheer so works as a good highlighter
Let’s look at the photos and swatches:

(it was quite hard to make them show up in photos since they are not this pigmented. I’ve swiped the pearls some 4-5 times to get this much of colour!)
Price: Rs.990 (wait for the discounts and you may catch this a lot cheaper)
So is it for you? A good highlighter never harms. Get it if you are looking for day-time highlighter which imparts a healthy glow than shimmer. Its sheer so you can control the amount you want to use.

I have the pressed version of this which travel friendly. Its called “pressed bronzing pearls”, shade is natural radiance; the quantity is 9gms. It comes with a puff like the ones that you get in compact powders. I piked it up on a discount and I am absolutely loving it.
