December is becoming devastating for Chennai year after year. Cyclone Vardah shattered Chennai and left Chennaites with no electricity, no water, no telecommunication, no Internet connectivity, and so on. After 4 days of complete blackout, all are slowly resuming back to work; so I am! Let’s now talk about today’s review. Oriflame has also jumped into the much-raved liquid lipstick bandwagon by launching their first liquid lipstick named “The ONE Lip Sensation Matte Mousse.” These liquid lipsticks come in 7 beautiful “Catwalk” shades, and I picked the shade “Soft Mulberry.”
Price: INR 699 for 5 ml
Shelf Life: 2.5 years

My Experience with Oriflame The ONE Lip Sensation Matte Mousse Lipstick Soft Mulberry
Packaging: This liquid lipstick comes in a beautiful transparent tube with a twist-up glossy silver cap. The silver detailing and The ONE symbol on the cap add on finesse to the stunning packaging. Being see-through, it is extremely easy to spot it on our stash. Its maroon-colored paper carton carries all the necessary information, including the ingredients list. The only downside is its sponge-tip applicator. Although it spreads the lipstick evenly and smoothly on the lips, it does not pick the right amount of product and is not convenient to apply at the inner corners of the lips. Its sleek, leak-proof packaging makes it travel friendly.
Texture: The texture of this liquid lipstick is soft, smooth, creamy, and lightweight. It gives a semi-matte finish. It applies evenly and smoothly on the lips. It is neither drying nor moisturizing. It is nicely pigmented, and one swipe is quite enough to cover up pigmented lips. However, two to three swipes bring out the true color intensity. It does not feel heavy or patchy at any point of time.
Shade: “Soft Mulberry” is truly a soft mulberry color. It is a perfect and stunning color for Indian skin tones. It is in between a plum and a pink, quite a unique shade. This color instantly brightens up my face. It is a must-have color for medium deep skin tones. I am quite enjoying this shade, which is quite appropriate for the upcoming festive season.
Performance: Unlike other liquid lipsticks, this is absolutely nondrying and feels comfortable on the lips. However, it does not settle down to a matte finish. This gorgeous shade could easily be one of the best-looking shades on Indian skin tones. It glides on evenly and does not cling on to dry patches. It is nicely pigmented, and single swipe gives a stain-like look. The color intensity can be increased with another layer. However, when the lips are pressed together, the color moves. It takes a while to settle down, and then there is no moving of the color, bleeding, or feathering. It transfers minimally and can survive food intake. It does not settle into fine lines. It stays on for good 5–6 hours and is easy to remove. Overall, it is a must-have shade with a great nondrying formula.
