AVON Ultra Colour Matte Lipstick review
I recently purchased a little Avon haul and some of the products I really loved and some of them I really didn't so I have decided to review them separately.
One of the bits I was most exited about were these matte lipsticks as this summer its been all about big bold lips and a matte lipstick is a must have. (Will be doing a plumper lips tutorial soon)
First thing I noticed was the difference in quality between each shade. Blossom is definitely more of a satin shade than a true matte as it does have a slight shine to it and feels a little more oily on the lips than the ruby shade which is my favorite, it has a delicate pigment which is fantastic for natural and pastel looks but will need topping up regularly I did notice.
The Ruby shade is a beautiful pinkish soft red matte with good staying power. This is a lovely lipstick for over lining the lips and making them look bigger and creating new shapes. Because of its soft delicate shade I think it would be good for people who are not used to wearing bright in your face reds. This is a good red for starters.
both lipsticks have luxurious light creamy textures and are easy to wear. My lips were left feeling soft and conditioned after wearing which I was pleased with as many matte lipsticks can have a very drying effect on the lips leaving them chapped but these do not do that.
Over all I am pleased with these lipsticks and will look to buy the peach and berry shade in the future.
