Avon Simply Pretty Colorbliss Lippers: My Favourite Shades

Fabulous Affordable Avon Simply Pretty Colorbliss lippers: My Favourite Shades. :)

Here I am yet again with lipstick articles. Just was keen to categorize my lipsticks in some way to help you guys. These Avon lipsticks are like my everyday lipsticks. These are simply pretty colorbliss lipsticks. The price is 125 Rs for 4grams. I would say these are average lipsticks with average smoothness and have mild oil sheen to it. I don’t know how to describe this. But none of these lipsticks that I have are creamy or glossy or sheer. They are just thick textured and very colourful pigmented lipsticks.

How I use it:

I would recommend using compact or foundation dabbing before you apply to act as a base. I have separate compacts for dabbing lips before lipstick application. So I don’t need to bother about the sponge. One such compact you can use is Maybelline white stay ivory white which is a white talcum colour pressed powder which I can obviously not use on the face. I bought it for this purpose only. Compact absorbs any oil in the lipstick or lips and I find my lipstick color comes out pigmented and drags smoothly and lasts longer, ofcourse you can dab tissue and apply another coat and top the centre of the lips with matching or clear gloss. I personally like it matte and smooth with no shine. For the smoother lipsticks u don’t need tricks. But follow these for Avon simply pretty color bliss ones.

Mango mania: this is a very pretty orangy brick color. Its very close to lakme nine to five brick color in case u remember my review on that. It is not matte nor does it have shimmer or any glitter. Its not creamy but just a thick pigmented color. Just one sweep on the lips delivers enough color on the lips. I would say we will need to touch up in two hours. But that’s not my concern. Line it with true red by colorbar. Dab with tissue if u wanna keep it mild. Apply clear gloss for evening. I personally skip it. Totally recommended for all brick and red lovers.

Cranberry:
It’s a totally wearable maroon color. I have seen my mom wearing maroon lip color only since I was a child. I could never wear maroons apart from what the parlor lady used on me to match my marron banarsi sari. I also was gifted a deep maroon called brides mate by street wear but I gifted it to some one. since the this is the only kinda maroon I bought for emergency purpose in case I wanna match my outfit some day. It’s a pinky maroon again with oil sheen to it, no glitter but has very very mild shimmer particles to it. Texture is same as other color bliss ones. Pair it with moody maroon lip liner lightly by colorbar. Skip the gloss I would say.

Rich Terracotta: this is again my favourite brick color. Its very close to mango mania but is darker than that. It very pigmented and goes with true red lip liner by colobar. Its quite smooth and is not matte. Amazing for fair complexions. Skip gloss again as the lipstick is on the darker side.

Truffle: this is also my favourite. Very close to mango mania and rich terracotta. It’s a mix of the two and is a brick color. It has mild shimmer and again goes with true red lip liner by colorbar. Its lighter than rich terracotta but darker than mango mania.

Mystic beige:
I was eyeing this shade for long time but was just scared it might be on the browner side. But it turned out to be very beautiful soft beige. It is a perfect nude color (so as to say ) if u wanna keep ur eyes dark  you can pick this one up blindly as I think it will suit all. It a great every day wear color and has very very mild shimmer in it. It is not matte. It has a slightly pearly frosty finish but to my liking. Pair it with  any nude lip liner and your favourite champagne gloss or clear gloss.

The few pros and cons of color bliss lipsticks:

Pros are that they offer huge color selection. There will be a color for everyone.

you can also pick many to match outfits, very pigmented and affordable. I have exhausted all my favourite shades. There are so many pretty colors though. They have plums. Mauves, pinks, bricks. Browns but few nudes.  They are kind of soft though. They also offer small nail colours in the same shades which is amazing if you want to match your nails with your lips.
On the bad side, they may stain lips, they don’t spread well on moist lips. Your lips need to be dry. I usually need a lip liner with these. They don’t have mattes I believe but we can always make these work for us.

Nice review Neha!
These are all great colors, but I’m personally loving Mango Mania (and such a delicious name too!) and Rich Terracotta the best.

I have used Avon only once… it was such a disaster! I ordered a brown glossy shade…. a light coffee kinda colour… when the product arrived, it was very very sheer… on my pigmented lips, the colour didn’t show at all…. i ended up using it as a gloss… :( thereafter, i decided to stay away from catalogue shopping :D How do you do it?

Hey Neha,
LOVE your lippie reviews :inlove: ! I was debating whether or not to buy something from Avon coz I wasn’t sure of the quality. Now that you’ve done a review, I think I’ll try a couple of their lippies. I love the look of Mango mania and Mystic beige. BTW, have you tried any other of their products?

neha July 26, 2010 at 11:05 am

I like mystic beige a lot :))

but neha – will it be pigmented enough for my two toned lips? (my upper lip is darker than the lower!)

neha July 26, 2010 at 11:07 am

ki it is mildly frosted and more towards pearly type rather than brown or anything
i doubt it for coverage
over another lipstick it will look great but i think its ur type of color
i pretty much like it :-)

Hey Pretty colours neha…

Lovely collection… Me too likes highly pigmented and thick lipsticks.. (If that makes sense..)..

Hence, testurewise my most favourite lippie is Colorbar;s Velvet matte.. it is almost waxy….

I have a colorbliss lippy from avon in the shade Berry Glitz..its a shimmery one but :cry: :pain: ..it hardly brings out any color and needs a 5 minutes of constant rubbing on lips to bring out the shimmer..ya i dint try it on a base..but I felt Elle 18s have better effect at a lower price range…at least the color n shimmer is full..so I doubled up my Avon lippy as a quick cheek shimmer :-D

Hi Neha,

Good review on Avon Color bliss lipstick. In fact I use to see many offer s for this range of Avon lipstick. But always I was scared because many color will not be as it appear in the broacher /web site. Eg: I thought rich terecota is a pink share, Its look pink in the broacher but your reviw says it is Brick. Now I defiantly try Mango mania but can you suggest some thing in pink shades I thought (some thing dark and pretty pink) in this range if you would have tried. I love pink colors.
