I have never tried an Avon lipstick, well not since I was about 14, when the Colour Trend range was 'all the rage' for us then teens, so recently when an Avon brochure dropped through my door I decided to give one a go.....
I chose a lipstick from the ExtraLasting collection "Moisturising high-definition lipstick with Fresh Wear Complex lasts up to 8 hours. Feels luxurious with a silky satin finish".
These lipsticks were on offer at the time for £3.00 which is less than half price - RRP £7.50.
I chose shade Enduring Wine.....
When my delivery arrived, the shade wasn't quite what I expected, I thought it would be slightly darker, I suppose that is the downside from ordering from a catalogue, but, Avon have a money back guarantee, even if you have used the product so if you don't like something you can send it back and receive a full refund.
Luckily, after testing the lipstick I adore the shade I selected, it's a very wearable everyday light berry shade with an ever so slight shimmer, it really is a beautiful winter shade.....
I wore this for a good few hours until I needed to top up, so not the full 8 as Avon suggest but I was happy with how long it lasted and you only need to apply one layer to get this shade, you don't need to build it up like some other lipsticks I have tried recently. It is sliky to apply and doesn't dry your lips at all.
My one complaint is the packaging, it feels quite cheap and for £7.50 (the RRP) I would expect a little bit more, but seen as I got this for less than half price I won't dwell on that.
I am really happy with my choice and I will be testing out others from this range or any of Avon's other ranges if they are on offer.
Have you tried an Avon lippie? Do you buy from Avon yourself?
