Today I have swatches of these new lipsticks from AVON and their Spring 2012 Enchanted collection. I was really interested in the bright colors and to see how great they would actually be. I have never tried any lipsticks from Avon, so this was my first time trying out their formula. There is one other nude shade in addition to these, that I didn't end up buying. Were these as pigmented as I had hoped? How was the wear? We will see below!
|Ultra Color Rich shades: (left to right) Nude and Infused, Purple Hazed, and Perplexed Purple.|
All three lipsticks were quite sheer which I was hoping that they wouldn't be. On the upside though, they were buildable and the colors were very unique and gorgeous. Nude and Infused was more sheer than the other two and the color was not that flattering on me. Kind of the same with Purple Hazed, it was really light on me for my skin tone. Since they are sheer I could probably use them over another lipstick. Perplexed Purple was my favorite of the three lipsticks. It was pigmented, creamy, and stayed on the longest. The stay from applying to re-applying was about 3 hours. Probably one of my favorite purple lipsticks that I own.
These lipsticks might not be for everyone. If you like lipsticks that are more on the sheer side that you can either layer or build the color, than you would like these. Skip them if you want a lipstick that is long lasting and opaque.I personally would buy a backup of Perplexed purple, and skip on the other two since they didn't work with my skin tone.
You can buy these from AVON for $7.00 each. Right now on the website, these colors seem to not be available, but you can sign up to get notifyed when they are.
Let me know what you think!
