Alverde Jasminder eyeshadow quad & lipstick

I didn't like the Alverde makeup I bought from Germany last autumn much but now I got products I REALLY like. Yay! Thank you so much, Graphology, for sending these for me :) The colors in this LE collection "My Best Friend" looked just so "me". I liked the quality so much that I want all of the Alverde palettes now. LOL. I can't wait to visit Germany again this spring!

En suuremmin pitänyt Alverden meikeistä, jotka ostin viime reissulta (mm. huulikiilto) mutta nyt sain tuotteita, joista todellakin pidän! Värit tässä My Best Friend LE-kokoelmassa olivat vain niin minun suosikkejani, että kysäisin saksalaiselta ystävältäni, joskos voisi ne minulle lähettää :) Ainoa ongelma on nyt se, että ihastuin niin paljon, että tahdon näitä lisää ja heti. *heh* Tuskin maltan odottaa kevään reissuani Saksaan!

The eyeshadows are matte and pigmented, the colors are lovely! The eyshadows have a quite strong smell, but it's not bad, I just prefer "unscented" ones. Natrue certified.

Luomivärit ovat mattoja ja todella pigmenttisiä, värit upeat! Näissä on aika vahva tuoksu, ei paha, mutta toki vähemmän tuoksuva olisi vielä parempi.  Natrue setrifioitu.

Her is the Inci I found from DM website, it might be a liitle different in this color.

The lipstick is very nice too. It's soft, not shimmery & the color is a perfect nude. This smell so good, om nom nom. I have to be careful when applying this, it's nude and quite pigmented... It can look unnatural if I apply too much.

Huulipunakin on ihana. Pehmoinen ja kimalteeton, väri on nude. Tuoksuukin ihanalta, nam nam. Täytyy vain olla hieman varovainen, kun tätä laittaa, on tosiaan nude ja saattaa olla aika epäluonnollsien näköinen liikaa laitettuna.

Some EOTDs with Jasminder palette:
In this look I used colors from the lower row. The primer is Detrivore and I used MAC I get no Kick pencil on tearduct area. The eyeliner is MAC Blacktrack fluidline.

And here I used colors from the first row. The primer is Detrivore and I used MAC I get no Kick pencil on tearduct area. The eyeliner is MAC Blitz&Glitz fluidline.

Do you like Alverde palettes? These are not sold in any webshops but you can find these from Central Europe (not from Finland).


  1. Hi!

    Alverde products always look so nice! I still don't understand how I how I couldn't find them the last time I was in Germany.

    Your EOTDs look great, as always :)

  2. Sandra: I have visited Germany a lot but found Alverde after I read about the brand in other blogs about an year ago. DM shops look "not tempting" from the outside ;)

  3. SO PRETTY!!

    I think I ordered similar colours from Concrete Minerals, can't wait to play with them :)

  4. oi kun kivan näköisiä, eikä näitäkään saa vielä Suomesta, tuntuu siltä että kaikki kivat sarjat on myynnissä vaan ulkomailla :(

  5. reeree: yay for Concrete minerals :D

    Ruu: Näinpä se on :/ Alverde on varsinkin erityisen kiva merkki...

    SilhouetteScreams: Yep, I love this palette!

    vanity: I agree :D

  6. These colours are definitely "the ones" for you!
    I love the Alverde palettes of the permanent display; but this LE I unfortunately didn't like at all; the colour combinations have not really been "mine".
    Have you ever tried the baked eyeshadows of Alverde? These....indeed....they are great!


  7. Britta: Not YET but I'm planning of buying those when I visit Germnay again :) Thanks for the tip!

  8. I agree their makeup isn't as good as their skincare, especially compared to all the awesome MMU in the same price range. But it's the only natural makeup we have here, it's cheaper than a lot of drugstore brands and it's good to have some pressed products.

    I love their eye shadows and plumping lip gloss. Their lip pencil, concealer and finishing powder are OK. I hated the lipstick, but maybe they changed the formula.

  9. Yep, the lipstick is not the best but ok and natural, so for me that is good :D It's a bit dry and therefore maybe not the easiest to apply nicely! The eyeshadows seems to be very nice <3
