Whenever I hear of the brand Avon, it brings back pleasant, childhood memories. When I was young, I would dream of wearing makeup one day and browse through Avon catalogues being passed on to me, with affordably priced skin care, body care, cosmetics, lingerie ( and so much more ). I think, I remember that one of the first brands I tried was Avon, being in high school. Haha!
So, when these babies arrived on my doorstep, it was my mom who was most thrilled seeing the lipsticks because she hasn’t touched Avon products for so long already, and I still remember her using such during her younger days. I myself haven’t used Avon products for so long already – I think the last time I used them when they were being sold by Lasallians as part of a subject in Business Management. Well, what greeted me was golden glam, and with killer packaging that really impressed me.
Aside from the really nice packaging ( being my favorite color combo, black and gold ), Avon Ultra Moisture Rich 24K Gold lipsticks really have tiny 24k gold shimmers in them once you see the colors. I was really curious on how it’d look on the lips, so I decided to open them and do a roadtest.
I used a lip brush to apply, and the first layer was sheer enough, and as I layered it with a thicker, second layer, it really gave good, pigmented color, with shimmery gold spread across the lips that gave a very lustrous, three-dimensional, ultra-moist look on the lips, add the metallic factor, which is so in nowadays.
Shades are below :
Noteworthy picks are Golden Peach for that really, hard to find pretty glossy, nude peach shade, Amethyst Gold for the YLBB ( your lips but better ) shade of glossy, natural lip shade of pink-brown, 24K Pink that’s a refreshing shade of youthful pink, and may I comment on the reds? They’re perfect. They’re not too flat, given the gold shimmer, and they’re very pigmented. You won’t have trouble achieving that desired opaque red shade for luscious red lips, and it looks very 3d ( not too flat )! For girls who love red, perhaps Golden Wine is a good shade to try. Nice for a sparkling pout, if you ask me!
One more thing – when you use this, you wouldn’t even need the help of a lipgloss because the lips look really moisturized with this lipstick. Verdict? I love it. I’m keeping them, and sharing them with my mom and sisters. Haha!
These babies are sold for 420.00php each, so you might want to try and see for yourself!
