It was such a beautiful surprise to see this parcel containing all the wonderful products from the Alterra Golden Wish Limited Edition on my doorstep some time ago and I’m happy to show you all the products in more detail today:
Alterra is a natural cosmetics brand by the German drug store Rossmann. The products are free from synthtic fragnances, preservatives and dyes, and alos free from silicon oils and derivates. Moreover the products are free from paraffin, PEG, -propyl, -alkyl and other components of the petrochemistry. The use of basic ingredients makes the brand suited for all skintypes, and especially for sensitive skintypes.
Apart from skincare they also have a range of makeup products and occasionally limited editions. The Alterra Golden Wish Limited Edition was released for the festative season (Christmas and New Years Eve) and perfect for the cold season the products were infused with natural argan oil to help protect you from the harsh and cold weather. The packaging design of this limited edition is also beautiful, with golden stars all around! I received 10 makeup products from this Limited Collection reaching from eye makeup, over to lip makeup and nail polish.
Alterra Golden Wish Sparkling Lip Gloss
The Alterra Golden Wish Sparkling Lip Glosses in Red Glamour and Golden Glamour provide moisture and a hint of color to your lips. They contain small glitter particles that make your lips sparkle lightly. I’m personally not a lip gloss lover because they tend to be to sticky for my liking, but enjoyed the brownish-red color of “Red Glamour”. “Golden Glamour” was almost like a clear lip gloss on my lips.
Alterra Golden Wish Multicolour Bronzer and Rouge
These two are my favorite products from the Alterra Golden Wish LE and you might have seen them a couple of times in my Instagram feed already! I use the Alterra Golden Wish Multicolour Bronzer in shade “Glory Bronze” as contouring powder and the Alterra Golden Wish Multicolour Rouge in Shade “Glory Wish” as blush. Both products are nicely pigmented and create lovely colors. I also love the marbled motifs in the pans. Thumbs up for these two beauties!
Alterra Golden Wish Lip Butter
Your best companion during winter for dry and flaky lips are lip balms and butters. The Alterra Golden Wish Limited Edition comes with two different lip butters called “Frosty Fruit” (red) and “Vanilla Cookie”(clear). The red lip butter has a very light hint of red, but mainly both of these lip butters are moisturizing and a great treat for your chapped lips. The downside is, that they have to be applied by your fingers.
Alterra Golden Wish Black Velvet Mascara and Sparkling Mascara
These are my second favorite products from the collection. Although it says that the Sparkling Mascara contains glitter particles you don’t see any difference between the two mascaras while worn (in the picture I’m wearing the Alterra Golden Wish Black Velvet Mascara on the left eye and the Alterra Golden Wish Sparkling Mascara on the right. Both mascaras have a a classic bristle brush applicator and feel soft while applying. They have kind of a chocolate scent, which I love! They also show a nice difference on the lashes while wearing. I’m totally happy with these two mascaras.
Alterra Golden Wish Nail Colour
These two nail polishes from the LE ae classic colours for christmas called “Red Wish” and “Golden Wish”. Both nail polishes contain tiny glitter particles and really look pretty on the nails. You need at least two layers of polish to have an opaque finish. They are not the most long-lasting nails, but the colours are lovely nevertheless and they are easy to apply, too.
All together I really like the Alterra Golden Wish Limited Edition. I love the fact that they are infused with argan oil and there are some products from this LE that I use quite frequently. I love the mascaras and the contour and blush, especially. How do you like this limited edition?
