What I think
The Oriflame Power Shine Satin Lipstick comes in a sleek and compact grayish silver casing. The lower neck portion of the lipstick tube is color coded with the lipstick shade. So when the cap is clasped tightly, a colored band is visible at the lipstick neck making it easier to locate shades. The sticker at the bottom mentions the shade name and number.
The lipstick formula is very soft and moderately creamy. It has lots of shimmer particles that impart beautiful shine to the lips. It is light weight and applies evenly on the lips. It is very moisturizing on the lips and therefore there is no need of a balm underneath. It glides on smoothly without any tugging. The lipstick has a heady muskmelon scent with hints of papaya, two fruits that score low on my like listL. Post application, the scent tones down considerably but doesn’t vanish as such.
Nude Lustre is a gorgeous soft pinkish nude shade that would look flattering on light skinned women. In a single swipe it gives medium coverage with a satin lustre finish. The intensity could be built up by layering on the product without making it cakey at all. This shade would predominantly suit fair to medium skin tones. It may end up washing out deeper skin tones. Even with the creamy texture, this lipstick stays fairly well on the lips over 3 hours with light meals in between. There is no feathering or bleeding of the lipstick at all. After about 3 hours, it begins to fade evenly and sets down to a rosy pink stain. However as it fades, the gazillion shimmer particles becomes quite obvious now and they look quite OTT on lightly stained lips.
To sum it up, I really like this shade and it looks great when paired with a Navy or Gray eye makeup. One main drawback I see are the shimmers that get emphasized as the lipstick fades which is quite disappointing. Also the product is comparatively expensive for the quantity provided.

It’s a beautiful nude pink that would look great on Fair to Medium skin tones. Deeper skinned women could go for the darker shades Red or Brown instead. However, for the price and quantity, you can any day look for a shade dupe in other brands.
