Rated a Very Helpful Review
Pros:Smooth and creamy, covers well, nice soft colors that blend naturally.
Cons:Lipstick is very soft and tends to break in half.
The Bottom Line: Smooth, natural coverage, nice shades. Buy when on sale. Soft stick, easily melts and breaks if pushed all way up.
I had originally ordered the little samples of this lipstick and loved the coverage, smoothness and colors they offered, so ordered the larger tube size.
Recommend this product?
The first one broke in half after applying. I thought I had put too much pressure on it, so I was given another one free to replace it and that one melted in the tube and also broke.
If you live in warm climates, you might consider just getting your Avon rep to order you the small samples, which hold up well.
The lipstick is very soft and creamy, and again, goes on smoothly and provides good coverage and feels soft on the lips, but you have to be very gentle with it and keep it in a cool place and not drop it on the ground, or it will easily break.
It lasts well unless you are a lip biter. I only had to reapply every four hours, but my friend tried it and hers only lasted for two hours. It is not very thick or sticky, but that is the reason why I liked it.
It was good at conditioning my lips and not drying them out.
Would recommend, but again, don't let it sit in the sun and be gentle when applying it.
As with all Avon products, wait for it to go on sale. The $8 a tube price can go down as low as $2.99 if you shop around.
The colors are not eye popping, so if you like subtle color that blends in well with your skin tone and looks natural on your lips, this is definitely the best way to go.
If you like the look of a natural smooth lip stick, this is one of the best on the market.
Shades in the magazine are not necessarily true to life, so ask your rep to order you the sample pack. they run about $2 for five or more mini-tubes and some reps will let you try them for free.
If you are a savy shopper, skip the buy one get one free deals, as Avon always offers a better deal further down the line that gives you more off than the half off deal, especially since one tube can last you for several months and by then you may be ready to try something new.
