Avon Ultra Moisture Gold Shine Lipstick Ruby in Gold, Golden Wine Review
I was literally drooling when I saw the Ultra Moisture Gold Shine Lipsticks in the Avon catalogue. The colors were so gorgeous and I just had to pick at least one of them. I had a hard time choosing what color I wanted, and after much deliberation, I decided that I deserve at least TWO of them; buying only ONE would be so unfair to me :). I ordered 2 out of the 8 lipsticks, and they are Ruby Gold and Golden Wine. I am reviewing both of them over here 🙂 .
HOW THE CATALOGUE DESCRIBES AVON ULTRA MOISTURE RICH GOLD SHINE LIPSTICK:
• Real gold contained.
• Rich creamy formula feels soft and smooth on lips.
• Moisturizing, luxurious and radiant color.
• Lips look luminous and sparkle with a gold shine.
PRICE: Rs. 429 per lipstick.
KEY INGREDIENTS: Not available on the cover.
MY TAKE ON AVON ULTRA MOISTURE RICH GOLD SHINE LIPSTICK:
The lipsticks come safe in a sealed plastic covering and after tearing away the plastic, there is gold color casing which is very attractive. After quickly, twisting open the lipsticks, I found that both of them are in a melting stage because of their creamy texture. The colours were so “wow” and although Golden Wine looked exactly the same as in the catalogue, Ruby in Gold had a slightly different variation, but not much.
When applied on to the lips, the lipsticks spread like velvet and coat the lips with a rich layer of cream, color, and shine. I absolutely loved how my lips felt moisturized and glossy after a single swipe. The gold particles in the lipstick quickly transferred itself on to anything that my lips brushed against, in my case, my son’s cheeks were glistening with gold dust. Staying power of the lipstick is pretty good for Golden Wine, though the glitter and gloss wears off after some time, the color stays on for a while without looking dull.
Except the contagious golden glitter in the lipstick, I loved the lipsticks so much, that I decided to refrigerate them to prevent them from further melting. It was a bad decision because refrigerating kills these kinds of lipsticks. The moisture and creamy texture vanished after a few hours of refrigeration. When I applied them after refrigeration, I got only lots of glitter and color on my lips, there was no creamy formula and no glossy effect. 🙁
I kept them outside in room temperature and I was able to get back some of the moisture and texture back to the lipsticks, but what I got initially was completely lost. As a tip, please remember NOT to refrigerate your creamy and glossy lipsticks, it would kill them.
PROS OF AVON ULTRA MOISTURE RICH GOLD SHINE LIPSTICK:
• Superbly creamy and moisturizing lipstick.
• The colors I picked up were bang-on and looked good on me.
• Spreads on the lips like velvet and gives them color, sheen, shine, gloss, and moisture.
• Attractive packaging.
CONS OF AVON ULTRA MOISTURE RICH GOLD SHINE LIPSTICK:
• Refrigeration would kill the creamy and glossy texture of the lipsticks.
• Post-refrigeration, the only things left in the lipstick are gold particles and color, the creamy formula vanishes.
• Staying power is an issue. The creamy texture fades off quickly, but the color stays on for a while.
• The gold particles will transfer themselves on to every possible thing that your lips brush against.
• Price without offer is an issue.
WILL I PURCHASE THIS AGAIN: Yes, but not in summer months, I would get them in winter season when the heat wouldn’t melt them away and refrigeration would not kill them.
IMBB STAR RATING: 3.5/5…..-1 for the gold particles and -0.5 for the melting nature of the lipsticks.
WILL I RECOMMEND THIS LIPSTICKS: Yes, get them when they are on offer, at least one, and get them when the mercury in your city has lowered.
