Today I'm reviewing some lovely lipsticks from a Swedish cosmetics brand; Oriflame. Oriflame's products include (but are not limited to) makeup, skin care, hair care, fragrance and accessories. The concept of Oriflame is very similar to that of Avon as it is sold online or through independant sales people.
The Giordani Gold Voluptuous Lipsticks (*) are formulated with Hydra Full Complex which is said to impart "8h moisturisation for fuller and more sensual lips". When I read this, part of me was excited to test out the 8 hour moisturisation but the other part of me was a little weary about the fuller lips as I have very full lips as it is. As you will see from the pictures below, the lipsticks are quite sheer and extremely glossy so you have to build on it to achieve more colour. I do like the fact that they glide on really easily.
Did you notice that the lipsticks all have a hint of gold shimmer to them? I think these are lovely colours for spring/summer. I do like the texture of these lipsticks as they did not dry out my lips. However, as some of my readers will know, I'm not the biggest fan of sheer lipsticks. So I do think they are a little too sheer for me to wear on their own. I would prefer to use them on top of another colour because they have a great gloss to them. In terms of making my lips appear fuller, I did not notice a difference but I will say though that my lips felt really soft and hydrated whilst I had it on. I also had to reapply it a couple of times throughout the day. I love the packaging, I think it's extremely chic.
I think these lipsticks are great if you are after a sheer lipstick that isn't too full on in colour and if you would like your lips to feel moisturised.
The lipsticks retail at £13.95 but there is currently an exclusive launch offer and they are now £8.95. This offer will last till May 10th 2013. Click here to see the full range of shades (10 in total) that are on offer.
What do you think of these lipsticks? Have you heard of Oriflame before?
Thanks for reading!
