Avon Ultra Color Rich Lipstick Review

Hi, although I’m not a very big fan of Avon, I find their products okayish. So, I always tend to buy this and that from a friend of mine who is a rep. This month there was an offer on Avon Ultra Color Rich lipstick. The offer was two for 299 INR and one for 179INR. Each lipstick actually costs Rs 255. As I am trying to finish off my lipsticks I did not want to buy. But still I ended up ordering one lipstick .

Here it is. I had torn off the seal. But put it back again to show you how it looked.

I was a bit skeptic while buying Avon. Last time I got one , a coral from Simply pretty Range and it reacted so badly on my lips that I had to throw away the lipstick. I had used it hardly thrice. But all the three times I had allergies. Anyway, I got so tempted that I still bought one. I wanted a natural color, So, I got a shade called Rase Wine which looked close to my lip-color in the brochure. But it actually turned out to be a brught coral. I don’t know why the name ‘wine’ is attached then.Here is my review.
Price: 255 INR I got it for 179 on offer.
Weight: 3.6 gm
Shelf Life:
The manufacturing date is not there. It only says use before 12/ 2013. I assume the shelf-life should be around 3 years then.

What Avon claims:

  • Medium to full color
  • Instantly releases rich color with creamy/sequined/shimmery texture that lasts for hours.
  • Non-bleeding/non-feathering colors that s defines and shapes lips even without a lip liner
  • Does not transfer to teeth.
  • Tested by dermatologists.

When I opened it looked wine-ish. But on my lips it looks bright coral at least in the day light. I don’t know why the lipstick was scalded as you see. It came in a sealed tube which I myself opened. So, Don’t know why this happened. Besides, noticed a little thread like fiber (near my nail) on the lipstick. I wonder if the manufacturing was hygienic at all.
The swatch looks a bit more reddish in the picture. But it was more pinky

What I liked about Avon Ultra Color Rich Lipstick

  • Rich color. A single swipe is enough to give you a good coverage. It is highly pigmented.
  • Texture wise it is not glossy like Maybelline Moisture Extreme lipsticks. But go over creamy. After wearing, the texture felt velvety in a comfortable manner.
  • I’ve worn it only once but have not experienced any allergy so far.
  • The casing: the package is amazing. The cap is neither tight nor loose. It’s just the right kind. The body is heavy plastic. Nice to hold and feels expensive. Doesn’t feel flimsy at all unlike the Simply pretty range. It is a stout casing which is quite attractive.

What I did not like about Avon Ultra Color Rich Lipstick

  • I wished this was a bit glossier as I like glossy lipsticks.
  • The quantity is a little less than regular lipsticks. It’s 3.6 rather than the regular 4 gm. This difference is indeed noticeable as the lipstick looks a bit short/ stubby.

Shall I repurchase? I’ll wear it over and over. If I find I’m not allergic to it I will repurchase.

My rating: :-* :-*:-* + 0.5

  1. Too bad the lipstick was damaged… :-((… I had the similar experience with streetwear..Broken lipstick from a sealed packet. I was so shocked 😯 😯 when I opened the case. This was my first streetwear lipstick..and I dont think I’d be buying anymore of them!!…This color however is looking nice on your lips!! 😀 😀 😀 ….

    I think this is usually true with both Avon and oriflame, the catalogue shades don’t match the actual ones at all.!! 😐 😐 😐

    Nice review BTW!! :yes: :yes: :yes: 🙂 🙂

    1. I have d same mirror wala street wear..bought it long back…bt it was my fav..its a mauvish color..n i havnt found similar in any other brand…dey had sum very nice shades i guess..

  2. Hey, just out of curiosity , why did you mention allergies? Are you allergic to any products ??? Thats a nice colour, looks very cheerful.

    1. And what kind of reaction \ allergies did you get ?
      I’m hearing someone being allergic to lipsticks for the first time, thats why soo many questions, don’t mind.

      1. smita u know i for the first time reacted with swollen lips with AMWAY LISPTICKS
        they were HEAVENLY SDHADES
        had to throw them…i still miss thos shades

        amway gave me a lipstick allergy in 9 whole years since i ever used a lippie 😥

      2. Ohh Thanks Neha & Nivedita for sharing , i didn’t know lipsticks can give people allergies, its supposed to be tested and all na, thats why.

  3. nivedita i have many many simply pretty ones
    the idea is affordable and variety…
    but too bad it reacted
    i am using simply pretty for three years now…but m happy with colors

  4. Hi Nivedita,
    I too had the same lip swelling reaction with simply pretty (i am allergic to most brands), i have 2 shades in color rich deluxe chocolate and mosaic plum they are good, no allergies so far. I wish they could put a complete ingredient list on lipstick so one could avoid what one is allergic to. Yes… catalogue shopping is like a blind date you never know what you’d find….the rose wine looks good on you. The color rich lippies come in 3 finish- shimmer, creamy and sequins. Yours is creamy so no gloss mine are shimmery,though choco one is more glossy plum one is more frosty shiny…..

  5. this looks really pretty.. 🙂 and sad you had allergies in the past.. but its very common methinks.. like i know a lottt of people with lipstick allergies:P

  6. Thats a really pigmented Lippy!! Must check out other shades 😀 😀 ………Oh wait have to find Avon rep first 🙁 🙁 :-(( :-(( 😥 😥 😐 😐 😐

  7. Hey Gr8 review!!!And thanx..coz I was just waiting for a review on these lippys before buyin one..I dont usually buy lippys thru catalogs coz there often exists much difference from the color shown..but the creamy texture of this is very alluring :-)) :-))

  8. nivedita, i had set my eyes on this shade the moment i saw it here. but was waiting for winters to set in as i mostly wear dark shdes in winters. could you plz help when i ask this? is this more pink or orange or red…i mean if i were to ask u the serial order in which the intensity of each of these colurs appears on lips, what would it be?
