Avon Ultra Moisture Rich Rose Lipstick in CARMEN ROSE

Hey ladies,

I hope everyone is doing good. The heat in Mumbai is killing us slowly :( Just waiting for some showers of blessing soon. Anyhow today I shall review a lipstick from Avon. It is from their moisture Rich Rose collection called CARMEN ROSE.



Ingredients: No idea as I threw away the box. But Avon does not test on animals which i like :)



Price: These retail for Rs. 299/-  However I had bought it during discount ;)

Quantity : 3.8 g



The lipstick comes in a dark black glossy bullet and a silver band in between with the brand name Avon engraved on it. Since it is from the Rose collection, the silver band has a pinkish tint to it in order to differentiate it from the regular Ultra Color Rich (UCR) lipsticks.The lipstick click locks hence can be easily carried while travelling.



Coming to the shade it is a red lipstick with pink undertones and is really a beautiful color in my opinion. The lipstick is very smooth and moisturizing. When applied it gives a nice sheen to the lips. Since it is extremely moisturizing it is advisable to use a lip liner to avoid the lipstick going outside the lips. It did not accentuate the fine lines on my lips due to its moisturizing properties. The lipstick is very pigmented and just a swipe can give you an opaque finish.

Its lasting power is average because it is creamy but it does fade into a nice pinkish tint on the lips which is the case with any dark lipsticks especially the 'REDS'. The smell of the lipstick reminds me of the lipsticks Avon made way back in 2006. The taste and smell  is difficult for me to explain but it is not bad for sure. This lipstick is not available in their Brochure 5 but if it is available in the future you should surely grab it.


Likes:
Nice packaging.
Nice variety of shades.
Moisturizing.
Pigmented.
Decently priced.


Dislikes:
Can only be obtained through an Avon representative.
Lasting power could have been better.


Rating : 4.5/5

My final say: I truly love this lipstick to the core. Although I am a nude and pink lipstick person, I don't mind experimenting with different shades sometimes. This color will suit all complexions, hence I recommend it to all.

I hope my review was helpful to all those reading it. Please feel free to leave your valuable comments.

Regards,
