Click your Favourites together with Oriflame Very Me Clickit Range!

Oriflame Very Me Clickit Lip Gloss (Neon Pink) & Lip Stain (Red)

Oriflame Very Me range has been a recent addition - aimed mostly at youngsters with pocket-friendly prices.
I was tempted to buy these at the launch offer of Rs. 99/- each with the connector free. I was looking for a lip stain - though I wanted pink one - but it was out of stock, so I got the red one - which turned out to be a good decision as it gives a natural coral tint to my lips.

This range has a variety of lip glosses, 2 lip stains and now 2 concelers also - which can be connected together (& separated & re-connected) for any combination you might want to keep!

I later came to know that this connector/clickit idea was launched first by AVON mark - in the name of Avon Mark Hook ups (See HERE )
I think this is totally inspired from there.... though they have launched it first here in India (Avon India WAKE UP!!)

Avon Mark makes trendy, aimed at youngsters products. I do wish Avon would launch this range in India.... or else competition would keep profiting from their ideas!
Till then its Oriflame who has the advantage....

Price-Rs. 159/- each (Connector costs Rs. 69/- extra!)

Quantity- 3.5ml

What does the company Say:
'Connect Whichever! Connect Whenever!'
Lip gloss- Give your lips kissable shine with shimmering lip gloss.Combine with clickit lip stain for intensified colour.
Lip Stain -Give your lips a juicy hint of colour. Combine with clickit Lip gloss for total shine.

Left- Red Lip Stain, Center- connector, Right - Neon Pink gloss
Left - Neon Pink gloss, Right - Red Lip stain (coral on lips)

Lakme Enrich Satins Lipstick 129 - Review & Swatches!

Lakme Enrich Satins Lipstick - 129

Its my most recent purchase of a Lakme lipstick... I also Bought  Lakme day perfect lipcolor in Apricot nectar & 2 lip love conditioners (will review them soon!)

I liked these lipsticks but always preferred maybelline moisture extreme for better colours and their feel on lips! With Maybelline neglecting their moisture extreme range (my staple)- I was forced outside my comfort zone ... Bought this - first time I applied it - I didnt like it -was too brownish for me.
I tried it a second time recently... with a lighter hand....this time it looked better (that hint of peach I was looking for was detectable!  Thank GOD!)

I think a lip balm under it will give the best results... :)

Price- Rs. 225/-

Quantity- 4g (I think)

What does the company Say: 

Cast a spell in satin. Rich color takes life in a luxuriously creamy stick that brings satin to your lips.
Enriched with sunscreens, vitamins and the goodness of olives, your lips will have a story to share. Indulge in a pod of beautiful shades ranging from floral pinks to shimmering peaches.


Lakme engraving - nice touch
