A makeup artist friend of mine once mused to me that Avon has got some pretty good lipsticks. He said that whenever he has no budget for a pricey tube of lipstick with PRO quality, Avon is his saving grace and I couldn't agree more--I think Avon's lipsticks are one of the brand's best products ever: The quality is good, the colors don't look cheap, and they've got a finish that can totally pass off as an expensive brand. I guess it's pretty obvious by now which Avon product I'll suggest in case you'll ask for my recommendation!
Speaking of Avon's lipsticks, I'm going to review their all- new Totally Kissable lipstick line today. It is made with pure pigments infused with Fruit Enzymes, Avocado Oil, Coconut Oil, and Triple Smoothing Complex that keep your smoochies moisturized all day.
AVON TOTALLY KISSABLE LIPSTICK IN DETAIL
The thing I liked most about this line is its nice silver packaging: It's a huge improvement from Avon's plain, plastic not-so-nice black tubes from the past. The mirrored case gave and steel body gave this ultra affordable lipstick some elegant oomph.

AVON TOTALLY KISSABLE LIPSTICK IN ACTION
Lacey Mauve is a midtone pink shade with a light rose-beige undertone
This shade is my most favorite among the four because it's easy to wear and gives my tanned skin tone an overall rosy glow. FYI, Avon has very pretty mauve shades. :)
Make Out Red
Make Out Red is a red-pink shade.
Make Out Red actually looks Fuchsia to me because of its strong pink undertone. I dub this color the "Corporate Hot Pink" because it's a bright color that you can wear to work.
Fuchsia Flirt is a warm, blue- based fuchsia shade with slight silver glimmer.
To those who want a discreet kind of fuchsia, go for this. I find that it's the sheerest among the four, and the silver glimmers reflect light on your lips and tames down the fuchsia color.
Whoops! Sorry for that smudge! :D Anyway, Racy Red is a brick red shade with a tinge of orange.
Because my look has to match up to the sexy color and name of the lipstick! LOL!
Racy Red is quite a chameleon as I think it's good for daytime and night time: Under sunlight, the slight orange undertone peeps through the overall deep red shade and makes it look a little glowing, and during night time, the deep, brick red color becomes more prominent. It's my second favorite!
All lipsticks have a uniform melting consistency that moisturizes your lips upon contact, satin finish with a touch of sheen, and a lovely floral scent with a hint of popcorn, although I don't like the fact that it leaves a little taste inside my mouth right after application. They're all incredibly pigmented and super smooth, although lasting power is so-so due to its emollient texture--it lasts for 2 hours on me before I retouch, and it comes off easily when I eat or drink. Well, at least it doesn't dry out my lips during wear and keeps it soft even if the lipstick has faded considerably already, and has SPF 15 which makes it good for summer!
The most commendable thing about this line is it was able to combine superb color payoff and moisture in one product, which basically makes it a great choice for just about anyone, regardless if they have normal or dry lips, and those who are dreaming of a moisturizing lipstick with the pigmentation of a matte lipstick. I just wish that next time, they release other colors such as oranges and browns as I find the color selection too pinkish and reddish. Nevertheless, it's a good line!
So far, what is your favorite Totally Kissable shade?
