I love lipsticks, especially the shades that can be worn on an everyday basis. Frankly, these days, other than white and black lipsticks, any shade can be used as an every day lipstick shade. Today, I will be reviewing the Oriflame Pure Color Lipstick Ripe Plum .

My experience with Oriflame Pure Color Lipstick Ripe Plum
The packaging is nothing fancy, but sturdy enough. It has a black body and a transparent cap. It has a twist cap mechanism and the cap fits the body perfectly making it travel-friendly.
Colour and texture
The name of the shade is “ripe plum” and has a creamy soft, easy to apply texture.
It has a mild scent and resembles a hand lotion fragrance (floral)
I saw the price and the shade of this lipstick and was extremely impressed with it, which is why I purchased this shade. The shade looks like it is way too dark and can’t be used every day by people with different skin tones, but after seeing the swatches, you people will definitely agree with me. I got it for some offer and I purchased this shade since it looked like an everyday wear kind of shade. I applied this and noticed that this is a very pretty plum shade that is light and soft. It has a creamy texture that applied like butter on my lips and has a good fragrance. It stayed for a good 4 hours on my lips with little smudging and fading. There will be more fading if you have meals and drinks. There is no feathering or drying of the lips but it does transfer to a certain extent. Also, it doesn’t cover the pigmented parts of my lips and I need to apply 3 to 4 times to cover them considerably. In all, for this price, what more can you expect? Go ahead and purchase this if you are on a tight budget. It comes in a variety of shades to complement all Indian skin tones.
