In natural light, this colour looks a lot more red- But thanks to my college timetable by the time I get home it’s always dark outside! My first thought was that I’d been given the wrong colour, until I checked the bottom and saw it was definitely right..
I do like this this colour on my lips though- It’s something I would wear out, Its just a little too bold or my daily look - Avon promises ‘8 hours of lasting colour’ I haven’t actually tried it for that long yet so I can’t really comment- Although I will say I tested the colour again on my arm over an hour ago and it refuses to budge without water!
The packaging of this product is actually pretty thin for a lipstick, compared to my Barry M one it seems tiny despite it being a fair bit taller:
Because of the packaging being so 'skinny', I worry that the casing could be more prone to breaking. Although I do think If the product is good, the packaging shouldn't bother you too much, its what's inside of it which you should focus on [Just don't go putting any weight on it- It will snap like a twig!]
Overall, I do think this is lipstick is good value [Normally £7, but Avon are great with their deals] It Just was not what I was expecting, So I would recommend asking an avon rep about colours before buying. The application was great and it didn't feel too drying on my lips. Although I think it's something that will have to go towards the back of my draw until I feel bold enough to wear it:
Do you own any Avon lipsticks?
