Today I decided to take a little break from writing the long posts with my 2014 favourites and tell you about some Golden rose products that I've been using lately.
Golden rose is a Turkish makeup brand well known in Bulgaria. When I was a teenager probably 80% of my makeup bag consists of Golden rose products. I've always liked their nail polishes and lip glosses. The products that I am going to show you today are quite good too.
Golden rose Velvet Matte lipsticks* - I think that every Bulgarian beauty blogger owns at least three shades of these. I have very dry lips and I rarely wear matte lipsticks, because they tend to be drying. Fortunetely the brand send me one of their Velvet Matte lipsticks. I got number 11 which is a gorgeous pinkish red shade. Golden rose Velvet Matte lipsticks are vanilla scented just like the MAC lipsticks. I was surprised to discover that the formulation does not dry out my lips at all. Everyone was saying that you definitely need a lip balm with these lipsticks. The shade that I have 11 is not completely matte too, the finish is similar to the finish of the red Color Riche lipsticks from L'Oreal Collection exclusive - it's a semi matte finish.
Golden rose Velvet Matte in the shade 11 is very similar to L'Oreal Frida's pure red. The Golden rose lipsticks come in sealed packaging which guarantees you that you are the first person to use this product. You get 4 g. of product and the price is only around 2 euro. The formulation lasts a long time on the lips, no feathering. I definitely recommend these lipsticks.
Golden rose Color Expert nail polishes - These are the new Golden rose nail polishes and they are quite hyped at the moment. There is a huge selection of shades and finishes. The other great thing about these is that the cap of the bottle shows you how the nail polish looks when it is applied on the nail. I bought my nail polish at Lilly drugstores for those of you who are waiting for the Color Expert nail polishes to be stocked in the drugstores. I decided to pick the pearly shade 81 beacuse I find the pearly shades to be usually the most problematic, sometimes they are just not opaque. This nail polish is a one coater, it was easy to apply, it dried quickly. The shade 81 is a pearly pinkish red. Like it's usually the case with all one coaters this nail polish does not last very long on the nails - it started chipping after 2 days. I read a lot of reviews and this is not the case with all the finishes, some are long lasting. The brush of the Color Expert nail polishes is also great. I would definitely buy more colors especially for this price - around 1 euro.
Golden rose Rich Color nail polishes - These nail polishes are quite popular too, but I discovered them just recently. I wore the classic red shade 21* a lot around Christmas. Then I bought the color 31 just because I have to own all berry-toned nail polishes ever made. The shade 31 is quite similar to OPI Casino Royale, but they are different enough for me. The Rich Color nail polishes come with this great maxi brush which makes the application very fast. The formulation is great too. You get 10,5 ml. of product. The price is around 1 euro. There are a lot of shades in the range.
