Review&Swatches: Alverde - Shimmer Oil - Universe Beauty LE

Hello! Because summer is almost here shimmer oils and sprays and lotions have been quite a topic and you can buy such products at almost every brand at the moment, I thought I would make a review and show you some swatches of another shimmery product I own :)

This one is from a limited edition  Universe beauty by Alverde, but I know I have seen it some DM stores still. This is also the only product I got myself from this LE.

At first I was a bit sceptic, because it looked too pink and all, but really it's a very nice product! Not pink at all!

 For about four euros you get 50 ml plastic bottle with a pump, you turn it sideways and press and the liquid comes out. It contains jojoba oil and vitamin E, it's a natural cosmetics product but it's not vegan or at least it doesn't have a sign anywhere. It's got a NATRUE certificate.

As you can see on the swatches this is very pigmented, so you will not need a lot of product to get the glowy, shimmery skin. You can use it all over your body, I already tested it on my hands and neckline and it gives  a very nice glow, very subtle. You know there's something there, the skin just looks so nice, but you can not really put  a finger on it. It is shimmer after all, so it will be always a bit visible, it will never be a natural look. Do you sparkle naturally? :P Still in comparison with how scary and glittery it looks at first, it's a really natural glow :) I just don't know what word to use, it really has such a small glitter parts that not one stands out, it's just a bit different than our normal matte and dull skin. Also it has a very gentle fruity scent, which I like. Also about how longlasting this product is? I don't know, if you apply it on your hands and legs and neckline and don't let it touch any of your clothes, than it will stay there for hours. On me, I had it on my neckline, it lasted all night, approx 6h at least. :)

On the last photo it's completely spread out and as you can see it really looks natural. As this has oil base I expected it to be more greasy, but it spreads easily, sinks in, it doesn't take long for the product to set in and it doesn't feel oily, greasy. Maybe during summertime and hot wheather it could be more problematic, but mostly I plan to wear this in the evenings and I think it will be ok, and I will feel ok wearing it :)

What do you think? You like shimmery products for summer skin care?

Thanks for reading!

  1. Zelo lepo, sem že gledala tole v dm-u pa zdaj razmišljam da bi šla nazaj pa vzela :) So pa take zadevice super za poletje :)

    1. Hvala :) Jaz osebno sem bolj zadovoljna s tole kot z sprejem od Essence, sun kissed LE. tale je bolj pigmentiran in lažje mazljiv, Essence pa precej bolj tekoč.


Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment :) I really appreciate it! :)
