Oriflame Very Me Lipmania Review, pics and swatches.
I love lip glosses/lip balms more than lipsticks and more so when they have a light tint of color. I kind of liked the ‘Very Me Lipmania (nice name no?)’ that was introduced in the April issue and ordered 3 of them, one for me, one for my mom and one for a friend(reminded of ba ba black sheep ). Pink Blush, Mocha Dream and Red Vibe were what I selected from the ten shades provided.
What the catalogue says about the product.
Get sheer high gloss coverage in intense shades you love. Specially designed packaging for every facet of you! Ten great shades in funky packaging that’ll have you head over heels. Why stop at one when you can have them all? You can always have too many shoes or too many shades.
Price and quantity : 4 gms for 169 INR(offer price – 129 INR)
My take on the product
Frankly I did not expect much from these. But the product turned out to be actually good. ☺ It comes in a transparent plastic case and the name of the color is given at the bottom. Pink Blush is a little more pink than Nivea Fruity Shine in Strawberry, Mocha Dream is a nice brown with red tones and Red Vibe is a mild red and actually had more shimmer than the other two.
I would say that the product is an awesome cross between lip gloss and lip stick. It looks and glides like a lipstick and the color and finish are like that of a lip gloss. 🙂 I quite liked it and so do my mom and my friend. Unfortunately, I was trying to safeguard the Mocha Dream from my daughter and in the process I broke it ☹ but my mom didn’t mind and is very happy with the color. 🙂
What I liked about Oriflame Lipmania Lipsticks
• Not at all waxy.
• Glides on easily and the consistency is not very runny too.
• It moisturizes the lips to an extent. I have worn it some 6 to 7 times and I’ve never needed a lip balm underneath.
• It doesn’t dry the lips.
• The pigmentation is good, if you regard it as a lip gloss. I have pigmented lips but Pink Blush actually showed on my lips.
• Price and quantity is good enough.
• The transparent case is very pretty.
• Can be used on top of matte lipsticks to give a glossy finish to it.
• Oriflame products are not tested on animals.
• You can pick up some new colors that you haven’t tried in lipsticks from this range. If you like the shade you can go ahead and try the lipsticks of the same shade. And if you don’t like it you can still use it as a gloss on top of your other lipsticks. 🙂
What I didn’t like much about Oriflame Lipmania Lipsticks
• Ingredient list not mentioned.
• Can be obtained only from oriflame agents.
• Choosing lipstick colors from the catalogue can sometimes be misleading. If you end up with similar shades then finding the name of the lipmania from the back of the case can be a little frustrating ☹ They have tried to put in a lot of writing within that small place . 🙁
• Yes, butter hands like me have to be super careful while handling it. Guess that is the case with every lipstick so this is not really a con but a warning.
• Staying power… is it me or lipsticks/glosses/balms in general. Nothing stays for more than two hours.
• I wish it came sealed. A simple plastic seal would do. Well many of the products, even ones we buy from the stores are not sealed but I just wish they would.
Would I recommend it? Ho yes, it is actually a good one but I feel a single color from the collection would do. After all there are so many other brands to try . 🙂
Will I buy it again? Yes, I’m eyeing Mocha Dream lipstick next after this finishes or after I drop and damage it completely beyond usage, whichever happens first 😛
Personally I would rate it 4 on 5…. 1 point deducted for all the cons put together. 🙂

They used to have a similar finish range that is now discontinued… i remember the packaging but not the name… had a lovely MLBB shade from them…! U have accurately described them as a cross between lipstick and gloss… very well put…
:thanks: Anks 🙂
but oriflame it is always a trial…. sometimes they work and sometimes they don’t 😉

Oriflame lippies are sooo good.. i mean all of them!!! They are creamy, pigmented and have awessome shades.. :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo:
But me too lazy to order.. Me love swatching 10 lippies and buying one from stores!!!! :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin: :toothygrin:
yes Mrun…. though i’ve been disappointed with some of the colors the texture of most of the lipsticks are good enough 🙂
ho…. but nothing can beat the thrill of shopping in stores….. but i kind of become conscious in stores with all the sales girls hovering and suggesting everything under the sun…. i just feel like finishing the purchase soon and getting out :P…. i know my bad…. but things are changing… after visiting IMBB I’m able to tell the sales girls what i’m really looking for…. 🙂 have to go shopping sometime soon 🙂
I have ordered 2 of these in Flirty Pink and Rock Star Pink 🙂 Im so happy that these lippies are soooooooooooooooo good 🙂
I’m sure you will love them Aarthi…. have fun 🙂
They deem to be nicely pigmented . Nice one 🙂
Thank you Bee… do try them when you get a chance 🙂
i am a lipstick lover, but i cannot for the life of me buy colours without swatching. it would be lovely if oriflame consultants could help with swatches , after all what suits one skin tone may not suit the other. with my wheatish skin tone i have realised that like it or not , the only way for me is to apply the lipstick on my lips to get a sense of the way it will look , and trust me i am so squeamish about it that i have not bought lipsticks for a long time.
true Supriya… its always better to try and test before you buy lipsticks 🙂 i’m on the darker side and i’ve made blunders like getting coral based colors…. ho how bad they turned out on me…. i silently passed it on to my mom 😛 but now i’ve become sensible( ali’l bit) and after many trials(read ‘mistakes’) I can fairly pick those colors that suit me…. 🙂
since u say its a long time since u shopped for lipsticks, guess it is time for shopping now…. happy shopping Supriya )
yes ramya truly waiting to go for a major haul. need lippies, eye shadows and concealer… counting days to the haul
A quick help needed…. does any decent brand has a purple coloured eye pencil????
hey tarry..try colorbar I glide prunella… :waytogo:
even oriflame eye pencils have an amazing purple ishade in it i think its called silver prune tarry :))
yeah…. get the one Neha suggested…. it is a very good one 🙂
nice colors…bt very sheer no.. ?:)
hi Bhumika…. yes they are not very pigmented…. but the color pay off is good if u regard them as glosses instead of lipsticks….. 🙂
Lovely colors all three of them. Calicoaster and girls in Bangalore.. Anyone knows of Oriflame consultants in Bangalore?
Glad that u liked it :thanks:
These look glossy and nice 🙂 And quite reasonably priced too!
Yes Ankita 🙂 Try them if u get a chance to… 🙂
