AVON Ultra Moisture Rich Lipstick + Glimmerstick Lipliner Reviews

Hey everyone! Here's part 2 of my AVON stash review, and coming up next are lipsticks and a lipliner!

What's hard about ordering from a catalogue (the way AVON does it) is that its hard to roadtest the shades prior to purchasing. That's usually my hesitation before buying AVON products.

So as you can see, I got 5 AVON Ultra Moisture Rich lipsticks in these shades, plus a glimmerstick liner in Red Brick:



A close-up of that AVON Glimmersticks Lipliner in Red Brick :
What AVON says:
Our #1 Liner!
Enhances the wear of any lipstick. Smooth, glide-on color. Long wear (wears up to 12 hours!) Retractable, self-sharpening.
Weird but true story: I have never used lipliner in my whole life! Its probably because the lipliner's purpose is to make your lips appear fuller, which I would never do because I think they're too full for my face. But the AVON glimmerstick lipliner is pretty easy to use--I didn't have a hard time tracing the outline of my lips and there's no need for sharpening. I'll have to see if I'll be using this one for future use.

Up next are the AVON Ultra Moisture Rich Lipsticks!

What AVON says:
Luxurious moisture, super-saturated colour. Targets dryness with hydrosphere technology. Contains jojoba oil and vitamin A, C, and E. 
I have to say I was pretty ecstatic most of all on these lippies, because they're so many! I was also very satisfied on their staying power as well as how they glide on. Moisture-wise (as what it promises), I didn't experience any drying effects.

Packaging-wise, I thought they looked really good and a nice addition to anyone's lipstick collection! The plastic case does NOT look cheap even though this one only sells for P199! Seriously!!!

But what I noticed the most is that some of the shades come on a bit sheer but some are highly pigmented. On to the shades I have:

M04 in Passionate Pink: this is one of the sheer shades I was telling you about. It goes on soft, so I had to layer it on. I don't know why they called it "passionate" since its not vibrant. I like the soft pink color it gives though, so if you want a non-overpowering pink, this is the shade to get.

M05 in Lava Love: highly pigmented color! I can't find the right words to describe its color, because its not a deep red (deceivingly so on the tube), nor is it a pink. Its more of an in-between shade, and very bright! That shade on my lips was achieved with only 1 swipe. You see where I'm getting? HIGHLY PIGMENTED. But love it when paired with low-key eyes. Its definitely something that will brighten up your face.

M104 in Deep Pomegranate: this is a dark red violet color that's also highly pigmented. I don't like the shade very much and won't be wearing this often--I actually used this for a costume look when my sister became a Black Swan for her creative photo (did the trick with a touch of black eyeshadow) because I wanted to achieve a bruised lip effect.

M200 in Charming Pomegranate: a fun fun color! I like this shade A LOT--because its different from the other shades. Again, this one is also highly pigmented and gives a high dose of color in 1 swipe. This is also best to pair with a simple eye look and no blush. Love this the most!:D

M306 in Coral Fantasy: looks more orangey on the tube than on the lips. This is more on the browner side of the color wheel than on the orange side. I actually used this to create a Miss Tangerine look similar to the one Dara has in her new Etude House campaign, which looked pretty good! A nice coral lippie for me, but you have to swipe it on around 2 layers so you can get that shade. Still also kinda sheer.


Here ends my AVON reviews, I hope you guys were able to find something you like because these lipsticks are lovely for the price they offer.

  2. My mum has good skin. So I just briefly took one of her SKII (http://www.geocities.jp/hongkong_skii/index_e.htm) to use, which I assume is a moisturizer. It's good man I tell you! She gave me a small bottle of eye cream before but the effects weren't that great and I stopped using. But my mum's moisturizer is good! I can feel it reacting once I applied it
