Review: Avon Ultra Color Indulgence lipsticks

16:05

Hey Beauties!

Avon has launched new line of lipsticks. I decided to purchase testers of few shades. Avon Ultra Color Indulgence lipsticks intrigued me, because of their moisturizing gel formula. As much as I love matte finish lipsticks, they do tend to dry out my lips. Don't even get me started on the state of my lips right now. Sahara has nothing on me and you'll even see that on some of the photos from this post.


I chose five shades and those are Honey Flower, Red Tulip, Rose Bouquet, Red Dahlia and Chocolate Rose. I've just realized right now that they all have flower names. 

Those testers cost 0.25€ each and for those of you who didn't know that, you can ask a person that orders your Avon products, to order you some lipstick testers. Most of the lipsticks that are in the current catalog have testers available as well.

Full size lipsticks will currently cost 4.90€ and contain 3 grams of product.



Honey Flower is a subtle peach nude shade. It's warm toned and nicely pigmented. 





Red Tulip is a vibrant classic red shade. I find it to be classically blue toned, but very vibrant in color. It's also super pigmented. 





Rose Bouquet is a warm toned rose shade, that seems to have purple and brown undertones to it. It's a very muted almost mauve shade.  It's also nicely pigmented.





Red Dahlia is a dark whine red shade. It's actually not as pigmented as most of the other shades. I think this line can be problematic with darker shades. Also because the moisturizing formula may lack in the pigmentation department when it comes to dark shades. The shade is more on the cool side.





Chocolate Rose is, as the name suggests, a chocolate deep brown with red undertones. It's definitely warm toned and the least pigmented of all the shades. In fact, I think the pigmentation might be a problem with this shade. Unless you have naturally really dark lips, then this will just add some moisture and shine.





The formula is an absolute dream. It slides on the lips effortlessly. It feels really nice and it doesn't dry out the lips at all. I find the gel formula to give a really nice shine and comfort on the lips. It's also non sticky. Seriously love the formula of these lipsticks. A dream to wear. I just think with moisturizing lip shades it's always safer with lighter shades. Because darker shades seem to be lees pigmented, therefore can look more patchy on the lips. This will stuck on dry patches. However, it's a dream formula for those of us who tend to get really dry lips. Now, I just wish I would order more neutral shades and that the range would actually offer more nude shades. 

The second part of the swatches is here.

  2. Wau, všečni odtenki. <3 Čisto vsi so mi všeč, še posebej Honey Flower, Rose Bouquet in Chocolate Rose. :)) Škoda, da je zadnja tako slabo pigmentirana. :/
    Moram tudi jaz naročit kakšne testerje njihovih šmink, ker obožujem šminke, ampak mam preveč teh ''velikih'' oz. normalnih šmink, ki jih itak ponavadi ne porabim do konca. :P Čeprav - sem si jih zdaj zbrala par, ki jih poskušam porabit.

    1. Temne so res bolj slabo pigmentirane. No zadnja na sploh. Meni je najbolj všeč Honey Flower. :) Jaz se ne spomnim, da bi sploh kakšno šminko finiširala. Za moje pojme so itak prevelike. Jaz bi raje imela več manjših po nižjih cenah, ampak tega zagotovo ne bo nikoli v trgovinah. :) Lepo, da si se odločila porabiti, jaz pa vedno nekaj izmenjujem:).

  4. Meni je pa ful všeč ta Avon z mini šminkami, zadnje čase sem kar malo pozabila na njena. Svetlo rdeče šminke ti ful pristajajo ker imaš bledo polt :D

    1. Hvala:) Ta je tudi moj najljubši. Je še en nude odtenek in mi je žal, da si nisem tistega naročila. Mogoče pa še nekaj odtenkov naročim zraven. Zagotovo pa eno veliko verzijo:).

    1. Prva je tudi moja najljubša.:)) Tretja pa je tak zanimiv roza odtenek, ki sicer ni po mojem okusu, ampak sploh ni slab:).

  8. Tole s testerčki je prav fajn, ker meni tako ali tako do zdaj ni uspelo do konca porabiti še nobene šminke :) Ti pa vse odlično pašejo, ampak Honey flower in Rose bouquet sta mi pa najbolj hudi.

  9. I have Red Tulip, Rose Bouquet and Red Dahlia, I also posted a review on my blog :) You're right, darker shades as not pigmented as the lighter ones and they tend to get washed out after a while. Anyway, I like them mainly for the moistuizing formula and nice shades :)

    1. I'll definitely check it out, if you have some other shades as well:). I was also very surprised by the formula. It's the only reason I want a full size lipstick now. Not so much about the shades:).

    1. Hi Tinatin! In the catalog all the shades look a lot darker to me. I'm glad I could help. I'll post an in depth review of Honey Flower and Peach Petunia tomorrow. So feel free to check back in to see what it looks like in the bullet and paired with some makeup;).
      Thanks again;)
