Review: Avon Ultra Color Indulgence lipstick Honey Flower and Peach Petunia07:44
As promised, here are separate reviews for full version Avon Ultra Color Lipsticks. You've seen me mentioning these lipsticks a lot of times on my Instagram as well, bu they really are that good. I did get a lot of testers, but I decided I absolutely need to buy some full versions. I got Honey Flower and Peach Petunia and I think I scored. You let me know, what you think ;).
The packaging is not something I would say is this lipstick's forte. It's actually plastic shiny black, good, but nothing extraordinary. I find that it snaps good for now, but it feels like it might get looser after time. It's also very slim as is the bullet, which is great for a very precise application. Because let's be real, not many of us have luscious big lips.
The lipsticks currently cost 4.50€ (full price is 8.50€) and you get 3 grams of lipstick. I think the price is pretty amazing for such a good formula.
I have actually already made swatch of Honey Flower, but I wanted to feature it here too. It's one of those shades that would appeal to many, because the shade is a mixture of pink, brown and peach. It's actually peachier and more pigmented version of MAC's Patisserie.
Here you can see that MAC Patisserie is a bit pinkier and sheerer than Avon Honey Flower. If you find Patisserie too pink and sheer, than you might find a good match in Honey Flower.
This is a bit brighter neutral shade on me. I like it, because it gives me some color, but doesn't look too brown or dark on me. It's the perfect neutral, but kind of colorful shade.
Peach Petunia is my new favorite lipstick shade. It's a very bright coral shade, that looks like a mixture of pink and orange. Surprisingly it looks more orange on me. I guess it depends on what skin tone you have.
I love this shade, because it's a nice more toned down variation of bright red lips. It's one of those shades that will instantly brighten up your complexion and give you some color. You can make it brighter by applying more.
The formula of these lipsticks is gel formula, but it's very pigmented for a moisturizing lipstick. It's one of those rare formulas that never dries out my lips (and I do have really dry lips in general) and it glides on the lips like a dream. It doesn't go over the lines and you can absolutely wear it without lip liner. It gives you a little bit of shine, but is also really pigmented. One swipe leaves a really nice bright shade. By applying more you can intensify the shade, but you'll also be risking it smudging over the lip line a little. I find that this fades really evenly. I drank and ate and it did came off in the middle, but that's normal for that kind of formula. Just reapply and you're good to go. I really recommend this formula to anyone who has extremely dry lips and likes well pigmented lipsticks in a variety of shaded.
The color range is huge and I'm sure everyone will find something. I do think they lack very neutral shades, so just be aware that all the shades have a bit color to them.
