Oriflame Giordani Gold | Voluptuous Lipstick Review


Giordani Gold Lipsticks

When I was younger I couldn't wait to grow up and be a woman. Strange I know but I wanted to look and feel as glamorous as my mum looked. She loved having her black hair styled just so, her nails were always shaped and polished and her makeup flawless. I remember her having this knee length jumper style dress that was black but made in the most shimmery fabric ever created, I wanted this dress so bad. I also use to clip-clop around in her black stilettos on the bathroom floor because it makes the clip-clop sound even more clippity-cloppoty. 

Growing up I did buy a glitzy dress or two or three, I did shape my nails and buy a tonne of polish and I do have stilettos in my arsenal... always! I didn't however, wear lipstick because I never thought I could look as good as my mum did, I was quite self-conscious and hated the attention it gave me also. Now, as I'm a mum I am more happier in my own body than I have ever been and lipstick has become a staple, making me feel put together and giving me that touch of colour when I look wishy-washy. 

When I was asked if I wanted to test out the Oriflame Giordani Gold Voluptuous Lipstick I of course, said yes, I chose the shades Chiffon Rose and Satin Plum as they were the two shades that stood out due to their vibrancy. Here they are in their wonderfully glam packaging. 

Left: Chiffon Rose Right: Satin Plum 

These lipsticks are described as 'veils of glossy colour' and for once I would have to totally agree with a brand statement. These offer just enough pigment to colour your lips and leave them super glossy. These remind me somewhat of the Clarins Rouge Eclat lipsticks in Tropical Pink and Red Wine and are just as good if not better in my opinion.

Here's a hand swatch of the two colours, you will be able to see what I mean by 'veil' (I've tried everything to get this image the right way, seems Blogger likes it better this way). 


This is Chiffon Rose swatched, it evens my lip tone out and you can see just how glossy it looks on the lips. I love this lipstick and it's suitable for both day and night wear. 


And on to Satin Plum 'wowzers' this is a pinkish red with blue undertones, it's very glossy and so easy to apply and is great for that sultry sexy night appeal. Although this is darker than the Chiffon Rose it's still light enough and glossy enough to be worn during the day. 

Although these do seem like dupes of the Clarins Rouge Eclat, having tried the Clarins and this lipstick I prefer the texture of the Oriflame and also the price (Clarins costs £18.50).  Both of these were so easy to apply and just melted onto the lips. The colour lasts for hours even after drinking and I found that even as I was taking off my makeup at night I was left with a slight tint to the lips, just as though it has slight stain properties. These are the first lipsticks I have tried from Oriflame and I now would love to try others. 

There are 10 colours in the range covering nudes all the way to pinks, reds and darker purple tones. I next want to try the 'Nude Silk' lipstick as it looks like a fantastic light day colour and I'm slightly wondering if it will rival my Susan Posnick Dubai shade.  The Giordani Gold lipsticks cost £13.95 but are on offer for only £8.95 which is very reasonable for the quality and amount of lipstick you are buying.
