Review: Avon Ultra Moisture Rich Lipstick in Sheer Red and Knockout Pink

★★★★☆

The truth is I just wanted to see if I could do a decent lipstick swatch. Mama happened to bring home two lipsticks one day, and so I tried and swatched them first before picking one and giving the other to her (though I liked both very much). I picked Sheer Red btw ;). These are both from Avon Ultra Moisture Rich line of lipsticks.

Sheer Red – ★★★★☆

Pros:

  • Great MLBB (My Lips But Better) shade.
  • Glides on smoothly.
  • Moisturizing enough to let me skip putting on lip balm beforehand.
  • Doesn’t dry out my lips.

Cons:

  • True to its name, very sheer indeed so you have to swipe at least a couple of times to get a decent color payoff.
  • Color fades in just 3 or 4 hours, and that’s without eating or drinking.

 

Knockout Pink – ★★★★☆

Pros:

  • The color is bright but not vulgar.
  • Glides on smoothly.
  • Moisturizing enough to let me skip putting on lip balm beforehand.
  • Decently pigmented. You can put or just dab a bit for a simple flush of color, or pile on more for a bright pop of color.

Cons:

  • Actually more red than pink.
  • Color fades in just 3 or 4 hours, and that’s without eating or drinking.

 

 

 

 

 

PS. How do you like my new siggy? 😉
