Oriflame Soft Coral Lipstick Review

Hi All,

 I bought this along with the Cherry Blossom Nail Polish last month. It looked so vibrant and inviting in the catalogue that I grabbed it immediately.

 I’m currently going through a bought of lip allergy so I can’t take any pics of lippies on my lips. I initially thought I’d review this later, but considering thisis a limited Edition Lippy I decided to swatch it atleast so you can check

Oriflame Soft coral lipstick+Coral colour lipstick Oriflamek it out and take a call.

About Oriflame Soft Coral Lipstick:

  • Packaging: This lipstick comes in Oriflame’s Limited Edition packaging which is a Light creamy green plastic cylindrical tube with a tiny flowered pattern on the lid. Its sturdy enough and  travel friendly as well

  • Color, Coverage & Pigmentation: In the tube, this looks like a soft red shade and I thought this would be an opaque and vibrant shade like the Nail Paint. Hehe…Thank god it isn’t. This is a gorgeous soft Coral Red shade which can never look OTT and is a semi opaque shade which would cover minor pigmentation as well.
  • Texture: The lipstick is very smooth and creamy. It doesn’t have any shimmer but has a glossy finish as opposed to the Matte finish the previous Country Limited Edition they had come out with. This is much better and ideal for gals of any age.  It doesn’t settle into the fine lines of my lips and this is one of the reasons why I really like this.
  • Fragrance: This lipstick has a very mild floral fragrance..but its so negligible that I’m tempted to say this is fragrance free! Hehe…
  • Staying Power: This can be the only negative of this lippy. It doesn’t stay for more than an hour on my lips. It does leave a nice coral tint on my lips but even that doesn’t last! Hehe…

Although the staying power is sad, I have to say this shade has really won me over. This is a shade I’d advice to all those who like coral shades, but are too conscious to try it for fear of the shade being too bright. This is perfect for college goers as well as office gals.

What I like about Oriflame Soft Coral Lipstick:

  • The LE packaging is very cute
  • Shade is unlike one I’ve seen before.
  • Glossy finish as opposed to matte finishes which I stay away from
  • Sturdy packaging and travel friendly.
  • Good for those who like medium coverage lippies
  • Doesn’t settle into the fine lines
  • Perfect starter shade for those who want to try corals but are too scared of doing so.

What I don’t like about Oriflame Soft Coral Lipstick:

  • Staying Power is genuinely sad. Such a pretty shade deserves more.

    • haha! yes..i shud tell my boss that i want t stay for a bit at chennai coz i have my blog pal there….haha! she’ll kick me out pronto!

  4. awww…lip allergies suck!
    I am no expert but I have had my share of lip problems and I was once told sometimes the lip allergies are a result of vitamin deficiencies . I ignored the person who said this (ahem…the husband of course). But then he prescribed me something and it worked.
    Just a thought.

    PS: I hate it when the husband is right 😛

  5. Hey Zee… what a nice color.. miss your pout though 🙁 No lippe review of yours is complete without the pout… ma’m poutmati :-* :-* :-*
    I likt this color… i think its something i would like to try (though frankly am mortified of reds)!!! If only i could find an oriflame rep 🙁

    • haha! thanx Mals…i hope my allergy dissipates soon…the allergy is the reason y m not doing many lipstick or gloss reviews lately..everyone will run away after one look at my lips! haha!

      u shud just try this…especially if ur scared of such shades….coz this is so sheer absolutely non-threatening…the swatch is also after multiple swipes…so its a fool proof safe shade…

  6. Am I the only one who thinks the packaging is juvenile…it looks like a 10 year old’s first lipstick! :sidefrown:

    The color is so pretty..Z, jaldi se heal your lips and then show some lip swatches please 🙂

    • haha!!! i think its cute….and yes it does remind me of my childhood! of when mumma used to get me kiddy wale lippies to satisfy my urge to be like her.. 😉

      Me too hoping my lips heal soon 🙂

      when r ur papers finishing swats?

  7. Cute packaging. I forgot it was green until u mentioned it. The color looked so red in the brochure that i flipped the page widout a second look. But this shade is so lovely. N yeah…really missin ur lip swatch zara. Hope they heal soon 🙂

  8. I am fine Zara,how ar things at yr end?
    I guess it resembles Faces moisture rich “first lady” a bit that I bought recently. :idk:

    And yeah Ana, I read the review… but I don’t understand why the lipsticks claimed having 2-3 hours of stay too don’t last long on my lips these days. :struggle:
