What I feel about these lipsticks:
These are the same old simply pretty lipsticks but in a new cute look and feel. Company’s website claims to have added an improved formula of ‘Natural moisture complex’ with jojoba oil, soybean oil and Rice bran oil that helps lips retain moisture.
Top- True Rose & bottom- Rich Terracotta
The shades I got in the ongoing offer are:
True Rose- which is a true pink shade lipstick that is neither too light nor a kind of fuchsia pink. It is a nice everyday wear kind of a shade that would suit any outfit and all skin tone easily. A right kind of pink shade with slight shimmer that would add a hint of lovely color to your face and dull day even. :makeup:
Rich Terracotta- Terracotta is actually a shade between orange and brown. This is a similar shade but the ‘Rich’ added in the name really adds a tinge of brick/red shade to the original terracotta color. It is a darker shade but again not too bright and can easily become a good daily wear option. :haanji:
Packaging: Unlike the previous navy blue boring kind of packaging, the lipsticks come in a pink colored pack which looks quite girly and cute and sturdy too. The lipstick bullet inside seems quite solid and fixed to the base and cannot easily break.
Texture: The texture is good. You cannot compare it with the high end lipsticks that slide like butter on the lips still these glide on easily and give the feeling of more like applying a lip balm atleast to me. Pigmentation is good for both these shades and is buildable too. They did not dry out my lips at all and did not settle in fine lines. But still if you suffer from chapped lips then better use a lip balm underneath these.
Staying power: This is the best quality of these lipsticks. They stay easily for 3 hrs on me even after having light snacks in between. Then they sort of leave a nice tint on the lips that stay for another hour and more. So this 4-5 hours staying power is much better than the other available brands whose lipsticks easily cost more than double its price but they hardly stay on for an hour or so.
So summarizing the pros and cons of these lipsticks below:
Pros of the Avon simply pretty new Colorbliss lipsticks:
• Cheap and a great option for pocket friendly cosmetics.
• Great shade selection available.
• Good staying power of 4-5 hours.
• Glides on quite easily on the lips.
• Cute and sturdy packaging.
• Does not dry out the lips and does not settle in fine lines.
• Good and buildable pigmentation.
Cons of the Avon simply pretty new Colorbliss lipsticks:
• If you have dry/chapped lips, then lip balm must be used first.
• The texture is not very creamy or butter like.
• They fade away quickly after full meals.
Ratings: 3.75/5 for both these shades.
Recommend/Repurchase: As I already said that if you are looking for some good pocket friendly lipsticks and that too with a decent staying power then these are better than the other well known expensive brands available and can surely be given a try. There are some lovely shades of lipsticks in this range that can become more of an everyday wear kind of shades of you. :thumbsup:
This time I have made a small change while applying and clicking my snap wearing these shades. I have applied both of them together, True Rose on the upper lip and Rich terracotta on my lower lip. :hihi:
Hope you like it.
True Rose on the upper lip and Rich Terracotta on the lower one.
