If you have read my previous posts, you might know that I am more of an eye shadow person than lipstick or blush. I just think that they all look the same and I was very intimidated with bright colored lipsticks. I was more into nudes and MLBBs. This year, my goal is to expand my lipstick collection and I do have quite a few already. So I was really happy when I became one of Avon's blogger council member because I got to try some of their products!
And today,I am reviewing one of their best sellers, which is the Ultra Color Rich Lipstick line. This is looonng overdue! I was not able to find my memory card but good thing I was able to find it.
Name: Ultra Color Rich Lipstick

Here you go..read carefully...this is for those who claim that Avon lipsticks contain lead. As you can see, NO lead content whatsoever....
Anyway, here are the swatches :)
Say Tioco and she looked divine! I think this color looks best on light skinned girls.
The packaging is okay. They came in a standard black tube with a metal band in the middle. The top of the tube is clear but for me, it does not make much of a difference because the lip product is not high enough for me to see which color is it.
As you can see from my swatches above, they are not matte so they don't settle on the lines of my lips easily. They glide on easily and feels smooth and creamy but not too much. Except for Tangerine Tango, they are quite moisturizing too. The colors are quite pigmented so one swipe is okay. For the smell, they smell sweet but it's light so it's not something that I really notice when I put them on. However, it is best to keep them in room temperature or a little colder since they have a tendency to melt or maybe it was just mine because my vanity used to in front of a window.
On me, they lasted about 3-4 hours before fading depending on whether I eat or not. They do leave a nice stain (especially Tangerine Tango) so they don't get erased completely.
For P375,(one mone to pay!) it is very affordable. Avon ladies are everywhere (in the Philippines, I guess) so it is not difficult to find them. Sometimes, Avon have sales where you can get the lipsticks for less, so better be on the lookout. :)
What I like:
-great color range
-no strong odor
-feels smooth and glides on easily
-would be nice if it lasts longer
Do I recommend them?
Heck yes! They are quite a steal!! I will definitely buy more colors when I go back to the Philippines. :)
So what are your favorite lipsticks? Have you tried Avon lipsticks? Do share your thoughts!!!
Thank you for reading my post!
I did get these products for me but my thoughts and opinion are my own and not in anyway biased. :)
