My thoughts
Avon Ultra Colour Lipsticks feel creamy, moisturizing and comfortable to begin with. They also have a soft shine to them which makes my lips seem splendidly hydrated. On the downside, the lipsticks do not deliver a rich color pay off as promised – the colors in the tube are awfully misleading. I believe they have somewhat of a medium coverage (require multiple swipes) and the shades do not pop against my skin as they should. This is something that bothers me since I love rich pigmented lipsticks. I suppose the line would appeal very much to the younger throng.

Let’s talk about the shades; I’ve got Knock Out Pink, Toasted Rose and Ripe Papaya. Knock Out Pink is a deep pink with tinge of berry tone to it. Toasted Rose is a nude rosy pink – more like a my-lips-but-better kinda color. Ripe Papaya is a peach with an orange hue.

Honestly, the wear time isn’t the most ideal. The colors last two hour tops. Overall, the lipsticks are not bad. I would definitely steer the teens more towards checking these out. I, for one, am not a fan.

You might like it if…
  • You are looking for a hydrating lipstick
  • It has medium pigmentation with soft shine
  • It’s scent-free
  • The lipstick feels creamy and comfortable on the lips
You might not like it if…
  • You expect a long wear
  • It doesn’t have a rich color pay off as promised

  6. It's a disappointment they're not highly pigmented, but I have to say I think Ripe Papaya looks lovely on, a more subtle colour for every day use.

    S xo.
