Hey! I come to you today with another post about my new make-up cosmetics, this time it will be to Alverde, a make up from Drogerie DM with a good composition. Every time I’m on a trip abroad and I see Drogeria Dm, I have to go there to buy a stock of cheap makeup products with good, natural ingredients. These cosmetics come from the promotion in the Czech store.
Products of this type are very popular there, which is why there is a huge selection of them and even in the cheapest wardrobes with care and makeup, we can find pearls and quite good compositions. Unfortunately, we are only now introducing more natural foundations and the Clean Beaty series, but fortunately the market is changing for the better. I also heard that from March 2022 Drogeria DM is to enter Poland, first as an online store, and then also in stationary. I have a lot of experience with cosmetics from this store, so I will definitely publish here tips on what to buy and reviews of cosmetics from my dressing table.
Today I wanted to show you my last purchases from the Alverde wardrobe, i.e. a light serum, highlighter, lip gloss, corrector for dark circles under the eyes and liquid highlighter – a blush that I simply love for everyday makeup. If you want to see how it worked for me and see the color swatch, I invite you to the rest of the review.

A foundation in the Alverde serum with which I am not entirely satisfied. It looks like modern cosmetics from the drugstore – a frosted glass bottle with a dropper, so I thought it would also be very opaque, for big events, but unfortunately it is illuminating, rare and light. The consistency is fluid and it is not easy to apply, because the opening is very narrow and you cannot pick it up with a pipette, it does not fill up and only a small drop pops out. So it’s best to smear the sides of the pipette into the skin and apply it with your fingers, this way you can spread it on the face without streaks, it does not work with a sponge, because then it is sticky, creates a greasy film on the face, makes streaks and sometimes it looks like a mask. The fragrance is slightly floral, nice, typical of Alverde. Medium durability, wears off after a few hours of wear. If you work it out with your fingers, it looks nice and lasts for several hours. I would say that this foundation is not covering like a typical drugstore medium, but rather beautifying, its formula makes the face look very natural, radiant and healthy. I still enjoy using it, but as a light BB cream, not as a foundation.

Alverde NATURKOSMETIK Hydro Lipgloss Caramel Nude 10 provides an extra dose of hydration. It gently removes the color, slightly shiny and has a pleasant, non-sticky texture. Thanks to the hyaluronic acid contained in it, the lips are intensely moisturized and look very well-groomed.

A beautiful lip gloss with a good composition and a very low price. It has a simple packaging, the bottle is transparent so you can see the color and consumption directly. The lip gloss smells subtle and oily, it resembles a creamy lip balm. Unfortunately, the applicator of this lip gloss has a strange shape, has a small surface and is relatively hard. The lip gloss is very light on the lips, fits well and is non-sticky, making it comfortable to wear. In addition, the lips are taken care of by a wonderful composition. The color is subtle and I really like shimmering particles. Durability is average, after hours of wearing, the color of the lip gloss is no longer visible, but the shimmering particles still stick. I like the color and the shine, it goes well with the peach makeups I have been doing a lot lately. The lip gloss is also available in two other colors that I will definitely test too.

The pink highlighter is in a glass bottle, the applicator is under the lid as in concealers. However, I apply it with my finger or with a soft brush to the tops of my cheekbones, on the wet foundation before powdering. The product is liquid, but thick, so it spreads easily and requires quick rubbing, after which it dries into a powder. The color is beautiful, light pink and has a soft, silvery sheen – a tile without the glitter effect. The highlighter also provides a wonderful effect in the corners of the eyes, as a blush topper and on my cleavage, especially beautiful in the summer. It can be mixed with the base, BB cream or foundation for an even greater effect of illumination. The shine is long-lasting, stays on the skin all day long and does not rub off. I just recommend it, I love this product and I have all three colors, such a creamy surface makes the face look fresh and radiant.
Alverde Natural Cosmetics, Highlighter Complexion Illuminating Powder, Compact illuminating powder
Face highlighting powder, gives a beautiful, delicate shine without the effect of “oily” face. Perfect for emphasizing the cheekbones as well as the whole face and neckline. Apply a small amount with a soft blush brush or loose powder.

Alverde Teint illuminating powder is contained in a transparent, plastic compact. The shade is very light, shimmering, not too warm beige gold, so it should suit most skin tones. Importantly, it does not contain glitter particles, and creates a uniform surface, not too sloping, rather beautiful and natural effect on a daily basis. It does not contain any fragrances and the alcohol content is also low. You don’t put too much of it on a brush, rather you need to make two layers for a better effect, so we don’t hurt ourselves with it. For me, it is an ideal daily cosmetic for quick makeup, cheap and with a good composition. I also used it on the inner corners of the eyes and as a shadow on the entire movable eyelid – it looks just beautiful.

Makes your eyes shine – Your gaze seems more awake. With shea butter and jojoba oil. Recipe without microplastics and water-soluble, purely synthetic polymers.

I’ve been using this concealer for a couple of years now and find it pretty good in this category. Of course, a natural product will not work miracles, if I have dark shadows under my eyes and veins from lack of sleep, nothing will save them, but the same is the case with other concealers, and yet I prefer to put something with a good composition under my eyes, not just silicones. The packaging with a pump is a bit inconvenient, but hygienic, I like to squeeze it into my hand and apply it with a brush or finger. Edit: the packaging has been changed to an atypical concealer applicator, it’s great.
The concealer is quite pale, but it blends into the skin and brightens dark circles under the eyes. It freezes, but does not dry the eye area, I apply a meringue liquid concealer and the shadows under the eyes are well covered, the powder is very easy to apply on such a layer, and everything lasts for a few hours. I have no problems with it, I recommend it.
I am satisfied with these Alverde cosmetics and I will definitely be tempted by other colors of lip glosses, eyeshadow palettes and foundations, as soon as they are available from us. When it comes to the foundation in the serum, it is not my ideal, it is too light and not covering enough, but I will test new ones, but it is a natural and good quality cosmetic and maybe it will work better for you. If so, be sure to let me know.
