My take on the Products:

Avon Ultra Color Absolute Lipstick has 8 beautiful shades ranging from bright to neutrals and nearly nudes. The formula is quite creamy and it glides over the lips smoothly and give true, opaque colour in 2-3 swipes. The product is quite moisturising and feels like a lip balm after application. My lips continued to feel smooth and dewy even after the colour had worn off. The lipstick does not feather or bleed and did not emphasise the lines and you do not have to worry about exfoliating your lips before application. They are quite perfect for the winter.

The formula is not transfer proof and long lasting. To its credit, the product does not claim to be either. The product lased on my lips for about 3-4 hrs with some snacking and lots of talking (my job requires that ;))
Each of the shades are suitable for a wide range of Indian skin tones. The darker shades leave a faint stain which doesn't look half bad.

Pros:
  1. Smooth and creamy formula
  2. Smooth application 
  3. Give true colour in 2-3 swipes
  4. Moisturising, even after the lipstick wears off.
  5. Does not bleed or feather.
  6. No need to exfoliate lips before application.
  7. Colour range suitable for indian skin tones.
  8. Contains SPF (though does not mention how much)
  9. Fulfills its promise.
Cons: 
  1. Bit pricey, considering that they are not long lasting.
Swatches:


Bare Ruby

Buttered Rum

Rich Merlot

Caring Coral

Smooth Plum

Coffee Creme

Lovely Fuchsia

Tea Rose





Bare Ruby, Rich Merlot and Smooth Plum are lovely autumn-winter colours. They could be worn in the evenings to add a dash of colour. The other five shades are lovely pastels suitable for day-time or work wear. They would look great worn with  smokey eye makeup.
