Nt wt: 4 g.

This is for Cali… 😀
What the company claims: World’s first triple core lipstick fusing caring balm,passionate colour and dramatic gloss.
These lipsticks were launched in November.Total shades in this range are 10. When I first saw it in the catalogue it was like love at first sight! <3 the colours in this range looked AMAZING! I instantly ordered three lipsticks whose shades I liked the most.they were “amazing peach”,”spectacular nude” and “ravishing rose”.she was also selling the sample packs of these lipsticks in another three colours which are “explosive pink”,dazzling cherry” and “striking plum” on ebay and I decided to buy them too.so totally I bought 6 shades out of 10. The packaging is quite classy looking and is of good quality too.each sample pack is divided in to three sections in which each of them contains the three layers of the main lipstick separately. The main turn-off is the smell of this lipstick.it smells like a strong cherry flavoured tonic! Can be quite disturbing and nauseating for sensitive noses.
The texture of the lipstick is quite creamy and it glides on smoothly.but due to the presence of three layers out of which the balm and gloss occupy 3/4th of the whole stick,the colour payoff of the actual lipstick is sheer-medium.it can be a good winter lipstick because the colour payoff is maximum on cold days when it hardens a bit and also it is quite moisturising.on normal warm/hot days it softens a bit and the colour payoff is almost sheer and it may be quite messy too.i usually wear 2-3 layers and blot after each layer for the colour to show up completely.otherwise one swipe is enough when I don’t want full-on colour on my lips.though it contains a layer of gloss the final colour on lips is not that shiny but has a semi gloss finish.because of the balm and gloss the lipastick’s staying power is low.
Swatches and colour description: (top-bottom and left-right)
1) Amazing peach: frosty light orange colour.(this was the colour which disappointed me the most..i thought it will be a nice warm creamy peach colour but it turned out to be a high frost finish lipstick.it can’t be worn on it’s own if you have dark brownish pigmented lips.it is only good for those with pale rosy lips.but I found a solution too! ☺ I discovered that it is a good layering colour! 😀 so I now sometimes dab it in the centre of my lips when I wear a nude lipstick..it gives a nice perk to nude lips! Yay!)
2) Ravishing rose: warm mauvey rose colour with brown undertones.final colour shows some sparkles due to the gloss which has some silver sparkles in it.this is a gorgeous everyday colour. this will be a MLBB shade for many Indian women.
3) Spectacular nude: medium brown colour with peachy mauve undertones.final color shows very little gold/silver sparkles.this colour can look ashy on very dark pigmented lips.otherwise it is a nice nude colour which looks even more flattering when a peach/pink gloss is worn on top.
4) Striking plum: sparkly deep plum colour.
5) Dazzling cherry: sparkly true red colour.
6) Explosive pink: sparkly cool fuschia pink with purple sheen.
Pros of Oriflame Triple Core Lipstick

- Good colour range.
- The shimmer particles in the gloss part are fine,non-gritty and doesn’t look OTT even in day time.they spread evenly and comes off easily with a good make-up remover.

Cons of Oriflame Triple Core Lipstick
- Low staying power.fades off completely within 2 hrs.
- Very strong cherry flavoured cough syrup kind of smell which can be quite disturbing and nauseating.
- Every lipstick’s gloss layer contains sparkles. They could’ve included some non-sparkly gloss layer in some colours. Not a big con if don’t mind those sparkles.
- Can Settle in fine lines if layered 2-3 times without blotting and can bleed too.
- Considering the staying power, Price is quite high.
- Can’t swatch or see the actual shade before buying.catalogue swatches can be quite misleading for some colours(like amazing peach!) a 398/- wala lipstick can go unused if you don’t like the colour,finsh or smell of the lipstick.
- Available only through oriflame consultants or on ebay.
Will I repurchase? NO! the smell irritates me a lot.
