Review: Avon Ultra Color Indulgence lipsticks16:05
Avon has launched new line of lipsticks. I decided to purchase testers of few shades. Avon Ultra Color Indulgence lipsticks intrigued me, because of their moisturizing gel formula. As much as I love matte finish lipsticks, they do tend to dry out my lips. Don't even get me started on the state of my lips right now. Sahara has nothing on me and you'll even see that on some of the photos from this post.
I chose five shades and those are Honey Flower, Red Tulip, Rose Bouquet, Red Dahlia and Chocolate Rose. I've just realized right now that they all have flower names.
Those testers cost 0.25€ each and for those of you who didn't know that, you can ask a person that orders your Avon products, to order you some lipstick testers. Most of the lipsticks that are in the current catalog have testers available as well.
Full size lipsticks will currently cost 4.90€ and contain 3 grams of product.
Honey Flower is a subtle peach nude shade. It's warm toned and nicely pigmented.
Red Tulip is a vibrant classic red shade. I find it to be classically blue toned, but very vibrant in color. It's also super pigmented.
Rose Bouquet is a warm toned rose shade, that seems to have purple and brown undertones to it. It's a very muted almost mauve shade. It's also nicely pigmented.
Red Dahlia is a dark whine red shade. It's actually not as pigmented as most of the other shades. I think this line can be problematic with darker shades. Also because the moisturizing formula may lack in the pigmentation department when it comes to dark shades. The shade is more on the cool side.
Chocolate Rose is, as the name suggests, a chocolate deep brown with red undertones. It's definitely warm toned and the least pigmented of all the shades. In fact, I think the pigmentation might be a problem with this shade. Unless you have naturally really dark lips, then this will just add some moisture and shine.
The formula is an absolute dream. It slides on the lips effortlessly. It feels really nice and it doesn't dry out the lips at all. I find the gel formula to give a really nice shine and comfort on the lips. It's also non sticky. Seriously love the formula of these lipsticks. A dream to wear. I just think with moisturizing lip shades it's always safer with lighter shades. Because darker shades seem to be lees pigmented, therefore can look more patchy on the lips. This will stuck on dry patches. However, it's a dream formula for those of us who tend to get really dry lips. Now, I just wish I would order more neutral shades and that the range would actually offer more nude shades.
