Product Launch and Quick Review: Avon Ultra Color Bold Lipstick

Hello Everyone!

Avon has launched their Boldest Lipstick Yet, Ultra Color Bold. This series of Lipstick comes in 15 shades and is packed with 50% more pigments.

My Take on the Product:

The product comes in a twist up bullet format in a black casing with metallic pink accents. The continer has a transparent window on top to help identify the shade easily. 

This range is dominated by pinks. There are  only two brown based shades, Bare Impact and Coffee Crush, the second has strong reddish hue, however. Most of the shades will complement Indian skin tones. But there are two or three shades which dusky beauties might find it difficult to pull off, for example, Starburst Pink, Bright Nectar and Peony Pop.

My two absolute favourites are Bare Impact and Coral Burst. Bare Impact is a true nude for me and imparts a glow to my face. Whereas Coral Burst is a lovely, true coral shade which brightens me up immediately!

The formula is really creamy and glides over the lips and gives true colour in two swipes and created no tugging during application. It moisturises my lips well. It does transfer, but is longlasting. It lasted for nearly 6 hrs with lunch, coffee a and light snacking in the middle. It lost it creamy gloss but settled into a nice stain. Its super easy to clean off as well, so no unnecessary rubbing.
