Avon states “Reveal your most color rich lips with new Ultra Color lipstick.” And I have to say okay Avon this sounds like a great idea so I’m going to give these Ultra Color lipsticks a try.
Avon Ultra Color lipsticks come in 55 true colour shades designed for a variety of skin tones. They are $8.00 each and with Avon you know they always have a great promotion going on so you might even get a deal. You can also order them online or through a representative.
I tried 4 out of the 55 shades.
Blush Nude – a warm pinkish nude crème lipstick
Poppy Love - a bright orange toned red crème lipstick
Country Rose – a medium red-based coral sheen lipstick (almost frosty)
Fuchsia Fever – a fuchsia frosty glitter lipstick
Avon Ultra Color lipsticks have great opaque pigmentation. They are comparable to a some high end lipsticks in opaqueness. This is just my opinion but I think anyone who tries them will feel how creamy and moisturizing they are. Something about their scent reminds me of Wonka Sweet Tarts which I find very comforting. The texture and finish of the 4 lipsticks I tried varied from a crème to sheen to frost.
I wore both Nude Blush and Country Rose to work and managed about an hour or two until re-application. Poppy Nude and Fuchsia Fever I tried while at home one evening the wear time was the same but I did notice that a lip liner is very helpful in making them last longer. They are $10.00 CAN though- so if I can get a beautiful rich lipstick and have to reapply a few times I’m pretty happy with the time trade off.
With that being said if you are looking for an affordable lipstick that has some great pigmentation. I say give them a go I don’t think you will be sorry you did. As for me Blush Nude isn’t leaving my handbag anytime soon.
