REVIEW: Oriflame Giordani Gold Iconic Lipstick!

Hello darlings! Today I have an absolutely STUNNING lipstick to share with you guys! I was offered to try out the Oriflame Giordani Gold Iconic Lipstick and I received the shade Rose Petal. I have to admit, I didn't have very high expectations at all, which is precisely why I am a bit pleasantly surprised!

 
I had hoped that the gold packaging wouldn't be just some cheap reflective plastic which is what happens most of the time with packaging for a product that is not high end. Thankfully, it isn't. The "exclusive metal casing" as Oriflame puts it, feel luxe and very sturdy too. Something I'd expect out of a higher end brand.

The shade Rose Petal, is what seems to be the second lightest out of the 7 shades that are part of the Iconic Lipstick line, a very soft, muted pink color. At first swatch I realized that the lipstick contains very fine particles of silver glitter, not something I'm a fan of and the color translated to a medium pink color and that too of sheer pigmentation, again not a fan.

Quite boring in my book, since I am a bold lip kinda girl, but- oh yes there's a but, the color comes to life on my lips as it transforms into a medium, COOL TONED pink. It brightens my whole face, the pigmentation is buildable too and there's definitely a healthy sheen going on. Now I didn't think this would look cool toned at all judging from the tube and the initial swatch, but there's definitely a difference of color as I apply it. Is it my lips? Is it body temperature? I don't know! What I do know is, that I quite almost instantaneously fell in love with the color on my lips. And that is not all I love about this sisters! It feels so luxurious on the lips. It is quite nice. Infused with Argan Oil to help restore the lip and SPF 15 to prevent sun damage is an added plus.

There's also a very noticeable scent, and a very heavy one at that, almost like a 60's ladies perfume and it does linger on for quite a bit longer than I'd like but I don't mind. I am not at all crazy about the scent, but it does add to the whole charm of it. The good news is, those tiny little devilish glitters that I was quite horrified to see, aren't very noticeable once on the lips and they don't feel gritty or transfer all over the face or anything like that, practically non-existent which is exactly the way I'd like it to be. The bad news is, the sheer, hydrating formula, as comfortable as it may be, settles into the lines of the lips so you will need to exfoliate for smooth creamy color. It did not bleed and lasted quite alright too, for me 4 hours without any touching up!



I think that covers it all. I do like this lipstick a lot although I would have preferred a deeper shade without glitter and then life would be perfect, haha, but another good news is that you can get these Iconic Lipsticks for PKR 1299 at Just4girls.pk and earn points that you can use up later for future purchases!


LOVES:
-Comfortable to wear.
-Luxurious packaging.
-Infused with Argan Oil.
-Added SPF 15.
-Buildable coverage.

DISLIKES:
-Heavily perfumed scent.
-Tiny glitter chunks.
-Settles into fine lines.
-Needs touching up every 4-5 hours.

My Rating:
4/5: A pleasant surprise!







Until next time! See you when I see you! ;)

    1. Yes indeed! It's perfect for day to day wear but the cool tones in it give it just enough edge to not let it be just another boring everyday color!
