Avon True Color Perfectly Matte Lipstick: Swatches

Hi Everyone!

Matte lipsticks are the latest rage and all known and lesser known brands are joining the bandwagon. The latest entrant has been Avon India. They have launched 10 shades in pinks browns and reds,under the name True Color Perfectly Matte. In today's post I'm showing you the colour swatches. I'll do a detailed review only after I have had a chance to try them out some more.

This range claims to be more matte than MAC, but, since I have not tried the MAC lipsticks, I cannot really comment on that. 

However, this product won't burn a hole in your pocket. It is priced at INR 479/-, currently the brand is offering an introductory 25% discount. So you get it for INR 359/-.

In Natural Light

Under Florescent Lighting

Under Florescent Light

That's a fair range of colours, however there are some  shades which will not suit a fair number of India skin tones.

Shades I Like from this Range:

Mauve Matters
Ruby Kiss 
Vibrant Melon
Coral Fever
Splendidly Fuschia
Red Supreme 
Chocolate Crush

Shades which may not suit Indian Skin Tones:

Au Naturel would be almost invisible on most of us
Ideal Lilac
Electric Pink

So which ones do you like?

See you later........!!

What's in My FabBag? November 2016 Edition

Hi Everyone!

The November FabBag is FAB!!

Now that That is out of the way, let me show you why I am loving this month's Fab Bag.

City Color Be Matte Lipstick in Francesca (M21)
Product Price: INR 500/- for 
Sample Size in Bag: Full Size

This was a the member selection item. There were a number of shades to choose from. With the onset of winter, I decided to choose this deep wine shade. Absolutely loving it. Watch out for a more detailed review.

The Body Shop Drops of Youth Concentrate
Product Price: INR 2895/- for 30 ml
Sample Size in Bag: 7ml

Perhaps the most exciting product in the Bag! I have been eyeing this since it was launched, but the price tag sort of put me out. Now that FabBag has sent me a sample, I can test it out to see if its worth buying. There is a 10% discount coupon redeemable at any Body Shop Exclusive outlet. The offer is valid till November 30th 2016.

Just Herbs Aloe Vera Facial Massage Gel
Product Price: INR 445/- for 100 gms
Sample Size in Bag: 50 gms

A very timely product in my Bag! I like to add a facial massage to my bi-weekly home-facial routine. And I had been planning to buy it after I had used a sample that had come in the FabBag sometime last year. I am loving the generous sample size in this time round!

Natural Bath and Body Body Mist: Beautiful Day
Product Price: INR 325/- for 200ml
Sample Size in Bag: 50 ml

I must admit this did not make me jump up in glee and say 'Yippeee', but the herby-smelling body mist does not disappoint either. Ok, but not GREAT...

So, 3 out of 4 HITs is a big deal!

Value of November Bag: INR 1480/- approx. A great deal, I would say, if you spend around INR 499/- for the Bag.

My Verdict: Book your Bag right away!

FabBag is a monthly subscription service starting at INR 416/-. Each month's bag contains 3-5 products from national and international brands ranging from drugstore to luxury. Product sizes range from small sample sizes to full size. To join this service click HERE.
