~ Review : Oriflame PowerShine Lipstick ~

Hello Lovlies,

I came across Oriflame products recently and so I tried Oriflame PowerShine Lipstick & because i find it interesting so here's my review for it.

Lets get to know something about Oriflame Cosmetics:

Oriflame says that :

~ Nature is our greatest source of inspiration, and we have a deep sense of respect for it. That is why all the natural materials we use are from renewable resources, and why we always make a point of acting in an environmentally-friendly way.  
~ Oriflame finished products have never been tested on animals, and we have never tested, nor commissioned the testing of, cosmetic ingredients on animals.
High purity ingredients and strict manufacturing standards

Lets get to the product I am reviewing today.

Its the Oirflame PowerShine lipstick.

What Oriflame has to say about it :
Lipstick with incredible 3D sparkle for ultimate mirror-shine. Enriched with rosehip seed oil and vitamin E to help keep your lips moisturised. Exceptionally creamy formulation for easy application.

Available in 15 different colors :

ricinus communis, octyldodecanol, polybutene, pentaerythrityl tetraisostearate, caprylic/capric triglyceride, synthetic fluorphlogopite, bis-diglyceryl polyacyladipate-1, bis-diglyceryl polyacyladipate-2, lanolin, euphorbia cerifera, paraffin, calcium aluminum borosilicate, polyethylene, cera microcristallina, ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate, copernicia cerifera, tocopheryl acetate, butyl methoxydibenzoylmethane, parfum, tocopherol, canola, propylparaben, rosa rubiginosa, synthetic wax.  

About the ingredients:
Silver-coated pearls reflect the light like micro-mirrors for a high-lustre effect. Rosehip seed oil rich in fatty acids and Vitamin C helps moisturise and protect lips, naturally. SPF 12 protection-UV filters protect lips from the potentially damaging effects of the sun.
How was my experience & what I have to say about it:
The lipstick that I am reviewing is Oriflame PowerShine in "Peach Nectar".Its a lovely peachy pinkish kind of shade.This particular shade is very much suitable for summer season.Its neither very bright nor dull.I must say a subtle one.The packaging of the lipstick is very handy to be carried & classy in appearance.This lipstick is very creamy in texture & is quite pigmented as well.It has a particular shine to it that is said to create the 3D effect when applied to the lips.The small granules like shimmer particles reflect the light & the shine is visible on the slightest application.This lipstick when applied gives the combined effect of a lipstick and a lipgloss.Its got a very fruity melonish scent to it.The lipstick creates a  balm like effect on the lips that helps in moisturising them & also gives the lips UV protection.Its staying power is around 3 hours if you do not have a meal in between.Otherwise you ll have to retouch it.When the first application wears off the lips feel dry because at all this time you had the moisturising effect due to the presence of the lipstick.When the lipstick is gone so is the effect. 
The lipstick is priced at Rs.660 for 1.6 grams which I believe is quite reasonable for such quantity.

Here is how it looks on my lips:

The Verdict:
As all products have their pros & cons so does this.One of the cons to me is the 3 hours staying power,but then when do we not reapply our lipsticks after an hour or two so this is not to be worried about.Overall I would recommend this lipstick because of all its positive aspects like the Shine,the moisturing effect,the sunscreen part,the variety of colors in this lipstick & the price.
