Review, Swatches, FOTD: Oriflame Very Me Mirror Gloss in Hot Red and Soft Coral

Hello Pretty Ladies,

Hope you all are doing great!

I have taken the plunge into the gloss world. I was always a matte lover but glossy pout is my current obsession :D Today I am reviewing Oriflame's Very Me Mirror Gloss in the shades Hot Red and Soft Coral. I have been using these glosses for quite sometime now and totally loving them. So lets move on to the detailed review.

Read on to find out more.

Product Description:

Give your lips the mirror effect! Beautiful shades, great coverage and incredible shine make this the ultimate gloss for glamorous gals!
* Intense Color
* Amazing Glossy Shine

Price: 249 INR for 10 ml.

Ingredients (from official website):



The packaging is what would attract anyone towards these glosses. They are so cute. These little beauties come in transparent mini tubes which show up the gloss from within hence make it easier to identify the shade. The tube has a cap which fits firmly and hence it is travel friendly. The applicator is slanted and makes it easier to glide the product on the lips.

My Experience with Oriflame Very Me Mirror Gloss in Hot Red and Soft Coral:

Shade: The shades I have are Hot Red and Soft Coral which are both gorgeous and can enhance the color of any pink or red lipstick if applied over the lipsticks. Hot Red looks pretty intense in the tube but it is a muted red on the lips. This would look great when used on top of red lipsticks. Soft Coral is a gorgeous coral pink and this is my absolute favorite. I use it over mauve and pink lipsticks and it looks oh-so-gorgeous. Both these shades look great by themselves and also on top of lipsticks.

Texture and Formula: The texture is non sticky and super glossy. These stay true to the name and give mirror finish to the lips which instantly gives a plumped up look to the lips. When freshly applied, the texture feels a little sticky but as soon as it settles in sometime, the stickiness vanishes and it feels very light on the lips. The best part about these glosses is NO shimmer! Yes! I love them for that! I am not a fan of shimmer glosses.

Pigmentation: These glosses are well pigmented. They may look very opaque in the swatches but on the lips they give medium coverage with one layer but can be layered up to achieve intense pigmentation. I am very impressed with the pigmentation especially when layered on top of a lipstick. They add an extra oomph to the lippie :D

Staying Power: By themselves, these glosses do not last long. They do not survive meals or drinks and go on for around 2-3 hours but when layered on a lipstick, these stay on for around 3-4 hours because these tend to bind really well with lipsticks. The glossiness stays intact for around 2 hours after which it fades but still a hint of glossiness remains.

Fragrance: How can I miss the best part of these glosses! They smell fruity! I love the smell although some people might not like the sweet fruity smell. These smell like strawberries and I love strawberries :D

FOTD (Soft Coral):


* Gives a nice glossy finish to the lips and also gives an appearance of fuller and plump lips.
* These do not contain shimmer (which is a big pro for me)
* Smells amazingly sweet
* Inexpensive
* Non sticky
* Adds that extra oomph to any lipstick when layered on top of it.
* Cute sturdy packaging.
* Amazing pigmentation.
* Gorgeous shades.


* Staying power should have been better but I am not complaining as these are a steal for this price.

Would I recommend this product?

If you are just venturing into the world of glosses or if you are a college girl wanting to try funky glosses, these are a must have! Others, I would definitely recommend giving these a try.

Would I repurchase this product?

These have been provided by the brand PR but I would definitely check out other shades.

My Rating: 4/5

All in all these are great for beginners and for those who are in search of a good shimmer free gloss. These are a steal for the price they come for so I would suggest to grab atleast one of these cuties.
