If you loved Avon's Totally Kissable lipstick's super hydrating formula, I think you'll love Ultra Color Absolute even more because it's just like the former, but has better pigmentation and staying power.
AVON ULTRA COLOR ABSOLUTE LIPSTICKS IN DETAIL
Avon's newest lipstick line features 6 moisturizing ingredients for better hydration and to improve the texture of the lips, and Color + Care Technology that promises lasting color and nourishment during wear. It comes in 10 shades and I'll be swatching everything for you in this post!
Packaging is just a pink version of the Ultra Color lipsticks. It's a nice, slight change so that you won't confuse one with the other!
Swatches after the break!
What does the Color + Care Technology, anyway? It's an innovation for Avon that they have founded and perfected just recently and have started applying to most of their color cosmetics. This makeup technology simply lets each product to provide truer-than-true color payoff and continuous nourishment for the skin. The 6 star ingredients of this lipstick line are the following: Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Collagen, Phytol, 50% more emollient ingredients, and SPF 15.
All colors yield medium to heavy pigmentation and true enough, what I see in the tube is what I get on my lips. It feels more cushiony than Totally Kissable and Ultra Color lipsticks combined, and texture even reminds me of YSL Rouge Volupte, but this wetter and lighter.
AVON ULTRA COLOR ABSOLUTE LIPSTICKS IN ACTION
- A rose berry shade with a hint of purple.
I find that this is the lightest amongst the 10 shades. It's your average mlbb lipstick, but I dunno, I just find this shade a tad bit 'old' for my taste. Well that's just me or that's how it appears on my skin tone!
- a very bright red.
My favorite shade! I know, I know, it's another red shade, but I could't help it! Okay so what sets this apart from other reds? For one, the color is a very bright, youthful red that's a lil' orange, but not quite. Finally, the color really captured the look and feel of my favorite cupcake flavor in the world-what else? Red Velvet! Whenever I apply this shade, I'm immediately reminded of that favorite cupcake of mine. :D
- a pink cherry shade.
I think this shade is a toned down version of fuchsia, and a wee bit brighter version of an average pink lipstick.
- a pastel pink shade.
Pink Renewal is a shade that's great for fair skin tones, but looks decent on warm skin tones too. It has a lilac undertone to it even, which makes it a pinker version of MAC's Lavender Whip.
- a fresh nude peach shade with a hint of pink.
Surprisingly, this turned out a favorite of mine! It's nude, but isn't too 'vogue' (lol what a term. I use that term a lot lately to describe looks that came straight out of a magazine) for daily use. The super fresh hue makes me feel so young too haha!
- a deep berry shade with violet undertone
Three words: MAC REBEL DUPE!
- a tropical orange shade with a red undertone.
I don't really understand why most beauty brands would refer to orange-red shades as Guava because as far as I know, it's a green fruit, but anyway! Guava is a sexy shade with an earthy feel to it. Looks great on really dark skin tones!
- a bright pink shade with a violet undertone.
This is a lovely alternative and much 'formal' alternative to good ol' bright fuchsia lipsticks, and me thinks it's going to look good on any person with pink skin undertone.
- a cool/warm bright pink.
It's not really fuchsia to me, but more of a bright pink, specifically a warmer counterpart of Ultra Color lipstick in Hibiscus. Looks good on medium skin tones!
- bright pink with purple undertone.
I dub this shade 'bright pink for night time' because the violet undertone added a sultry feel to it. :)
Just like the rest of Avon's lipsticks, it's super creamy, but uniquely watery and light enough to be worn during hot days like right now-I'm here in Greenbelt and ugh, the heat, it's killing me. :( Anyway, this lipstick is like a mash- up of lip balm, lip gloss, and lipstick!
I find that it stays on longer than Ultra Color and Totally Kissable-it stays on for about 3 hours, tops, if untouched and fades gradually after a meal or a cup of coffee-it's arguably Avon's longest- wearing lipstick in my opinion. You also won't need a lip liner to keep it intact and it does not settle into fine lines. I'm just glad that Avon was able to improve the staying power of their lipsticks through this line without sacrificing the creamy, hydrating formula that made me love the brand!
