More matte lipsticks? Yes! :) Today's review is of the new matte line of lipsticks that are available at Avon. When I saw these, I couldn't pass on some testers. I wish I ordered more, but I wanted to try just a few shades to see which suit me and what kind of finish it gives.
I ordered four shades, which are Matte Rose, Matte Peach, Matte Melon and Matte Ruby. Most nude to peach shades and one red. The shades are really similar, but hopefully you'll see the differences on my photos.
Testers cost 0.30€ and full sized lipsticks cost 5.40€ now. The lipsticks are supposed to be matte, but not dry out the lips, have pigmented color and perfect coverage and nourishing formula.
The lipstick are matte, but not like the Bourjois Rouge Edition Velvet - those seem to have the perfect matte finish. Avon lipsticks just have a bit less shine than a regular lipstick. I'm kind of not impressed by the finish, because I would like them to be a bit more matte, but then they'd probably be a lot more drying as well. They don't feel drying at all and the color payoff is really nice It does seem to stick to any dry patches and I feel like it sometimes doesn't stick to certain parts of my lips, but I had the same problem with Bourjois. Maybe it's just my weird lips. They don't dry out my lips and actually feel really nice on them. They stain the lips a little, but nothing too much. They also won't survive a meal, but are pretty long lasting if you don't rub the lips in any way.
Now onto the shades. The first is Matte Rose, which is a warm toned rose to peach shade. It's actually a light warm pink shade, that looks like a nude color or my lips. It's more like mine but better lips shade. It's the most pink toned out of all the shades that I got.
The Matte Peach is a warm peach shade. It's sort of a beige peach shade. It's definitely a lot warmer then rose and a lot more orange based.
The Matte Melon is light orange shade, which is also warm toned. It has a lot more orange undertone than peach and it's a lot brighter. This is a definite wearable orange shade for this season.
The Matte Ruby is a bright cool toned red. It has a bit of a fuchsia undertone, that gives it an interesting shade of a pink red shade.
I actually like the lipsticks, even if they're not a perfect matte finish. I really like the Matte Peach and Matte Melon shade. Maybe I'll even order a full sized version of one of these.
What is your favorite shade of these? Have you tried any of these?
