Oriflame Giordani Gold Jewel Lipstick [Rose Blossom] Review, Swatch and LOTD

As much as I love window shopping I love going through the Oriflame and Avon catalogues :D Sometimes I do buy make up and skin care based on the consultants recommendation. This time it was so hard to resist the Jewel Lipstick by Oriflame and our generous Pree gave it to me for the consultant's price :D They just had 5-6 shades and I got the shade Rose Blossom based on Pree's recommendation.




Description

As per the name the lipstick is packed in all gold color with some work at the base of the tube to give a royal look. I have heard that the Giordani range in Oriflame is pretty good and this lipstick confirmed the quality. The lipstick is a creamy one that leaves a sheer color with one swipe and it is so easy to build up the color. The shade Rose Blossom is a pretty mauve shade. Though I want to try the other shades as well I am on a shopping ban so shhhhhhhhh..




Likes
  • The lipstick is creamy.
  • Easily glides on lips.
  • Provides medium coverage.
  • Leaves the lips hydrated.
  • Royal gold packaging.
  • 7 shades available in total.
  • Lasts on my lips for 3 hours.



Dislikes
  • I expected more pigmentation :p Might be it is just with this shade as I saw the red giving full coverage.

Swatch - 5 swipes

Price

The cost of Oriflame Giordani Gold Jewel Lipstick is Rs.598 for 4g. I got it for 200 less I guess :D


LOTD

Verdict

The jewel lipstick is a jewel only when it comes to the price !! It is completely moisturizing and I love that but sadly the pigmentation did not meet my expectation. See the dull color on my lips after 5-6 swipes :( Wish the other shades have better pigmentation. However, for the price this will be my only lipstick from this range.

  7. Ooh so pretty and shinyyyy. I wouldn't have gotten this colour because it's mauve. :S But that's like lip balm pigmentation, or less! Nice of Preetha that you got it for lesser, really pretty to look at, so more or less justified! :)
