Ever since attending the launch party for Oriflame’s new “The One” makeup range last month, I have been trying out lots of products and learning more about Oriflame as a whole. I’ve been trying out lots of different products – eyes, lips and face products – but nothing has grabbed my eye as much as the Power Shine lip glosses have. I’m completely in love with them and totally fixated by them, so let me tell you all about them…
The Power Shine Lipglosses are part of the new “The One” range from Oriflame, and are available in 8 shades. There are quite a variety of shades available, from nudes to pinks to plums – something for every season. The packaging is nice too – it feels very good quality, and is quite typical of general lipgloss packaging, with it’s plastic tube, metal lid and soft sponge applicator.
The first thing I noticed when I opened one of the Power Shine lip glosses was the smell. This lipgloss smells amazing. It smells of Watermelons, so if you’re a fan of fresh, fruit-smelling lip glosses then these lip glosses will definitely meet your requirements. Once on the lips, I also notices that these are not sticky at all. Literally, it’s like having lip balm on your lips, but with the shine and colour of a lipgloss. If like me you hate sticky lip glosses, these are definitely worth a try as they didn’t feel sticky on my lips at all.
The three shades that I own are Soft Pink, Rose Glacier and Nude Reflection. These three shades are actually the three lightest shades that are available in the range. I do believe there are darker shades available too, there’s some dark plum ones that I’d really like to try out for Autumn in the future too. These three shades are great for this time of year, as the weather is (supposed to be) getting warmer so softer pastel colours are coming out! All the colours are mega shimmery – the shimmery particles in them are visible in the tube, and they are insanely shiny on the lips.
Top to Bottom: Nude Reflection, Rose Glacier and Soft Pink
Nude Reflection is a pale peachy nude colour, very subtle. If I want to just have a shine on my lips, I’ll use this lipgloss alone, or I’ll use it on top of another lipstick just to give the lipstick a shine. Rose Glacier is still quite a nude colour, but it’s got a hint of pink in it, so I’d say it’s in-between being nude or pink – maybe it’s best to describe it as a pinky nude?! Finally, Soft Pink is a prominent pink, which is quite dark in comparison to the other two shades. As you can see from the swatches above, they do have a decent amount of pigmentation, and you can tell the difference between each lipgloss.
Overall, I’m super impressed by these smooth, pigmented, shiny lip glosses. I would definitely recommend them, and I’ll definitely be looking to buy more of these in the future. They go particularly well with Oriflame’s “The One” Power Shine lipsticks, which I will be doing a full review of when I get round to getting more of the lipsticks, as I only have it in one shade.
