I love wearing lipstick on a daily basis. So when I heard about the launching of Avon’s three new fabulous lip products for the summer, I jumped at the opportunity to try and test them out (and share them to you all, my dear readers). 🙂
Here are my takes:
Ultra Color Rich Extra Plump Lipstick– A lipstick that delivers a super rich color with the extra plumping benefits for voluptuous, hydrated lips. I tried the Coco Plump– a light brown color that’s perfect for the creamy-colored summer floral top I recently purchased. This lipstick glides on smoothly and leaves my lips soft and conditioned. If you’ve ever used a plumping lip product before, you’re familiar with the sensation that makes your lips feel a bit tingly. This lipstick will just give your lips a very mild tingly sensation, instead of an uncomfortable stinging bite. As for the “pleasantly plumping” effects, I didn’t see a big difference on my pout although I felt really pretty wearing it with its nice, highly pigmented color. Plus, it stayed on my lips longer than I expected! All in all, I recommend this lip product if you’re looking for a creamy lipstick finish with a full, rich color. Avon’s Ultra Color Rich Extra Plump Lipstick comes in ten luscious shades.
SpectraColor Lipstick– Turn your lips from subtle to sensational with this seven-lipcolors-in-one lipstick! This very ingenious lipstick lets you easily customize your lip shades from light to intense with a dial up mode so you can achieve high-shine color for sheer-to-medium lip coverage. The dial at the bottom of this lipstick tube comes with seven lipcolors ranging from the lightest to darkest and a locking system that allows you to turn the dial to your desired color and lock it before application. Your chosen color comes out of the top lip applicator when you press the bottom of the gloss. The gloss will then come out of tiny holes at the top, then apply. Voila, you have a fabulous, shiny-looking lips! This lipstick is perfect for when you’re on the go and you don’t want to carry a load of lipstick tubes. With Avon’s SpectraColor Lipstick, you’ll get 7 shades in one tube! And with an affordable price of only $9.50, you can’t go wrong with it! I am loving mine in The Raisins shades, although it comes in nine other fabulous lip color groups. 😉
Pro 3-in-1 Lip Wand– Just launching this month, here’s a lip pencil, lip stick and lip gloss in one beauty tool you’ll instantly fall for! It’s a magic wand for multi-tasking your lip routine and it comes in perfectly coordinated colors. With the summer heat constantly leaving my lips dry and slightly parched, this lip gloss wand is instant moisturizing gratification for me! I love this whole idea of a lipstick! I tried it in the Solar Rose– a light reddish-pink shade combination with just a hint of shimmer. This lipstick is a perfect grab-and-go multi-tasking beauty tool you’ll want to have! Comes in ten shades. Retail price: $9.50
