Here's a review on Avon True Color Perfectly Matte Lipstick.
OTHER LOCATIONS: Available through your trusted Avon lady
When I was starting out in Beauty Blogging, I encountered a makeup artist in one of the beauty campaigns I did and gave me this tip: If you want affordable, but great lipsticks, go for Avon; he swears by it and he even showed me his Avon lipstick arsenal that he brings with him in every gig. "What's not to love about it?" He mused; "Colors are great and it's affordable that's why it allows me to buy a lot so I can mix and match colors."
That tip stuck with me so I always see Avon lipsticks as one of the best there is; true enough, it is; Avon lipstick is a staple in my makeup kit and I wear it when my lips are very dry, but I have to wear lipstick.
I got to try True Color Perfectly Matte Lipstick recently; adding this one to my list of Lipsticks For When Your Lips Are Undergoing El Niño.
WHAT IS IT?
A matte lipstick with 100% matte ingredients, but with a comfortable feel. Avon promises that formula will not cake, settle, crack nor crease during wear. It comes in 12 true shades.
According to Avon, this is their first matte lipstick. Love the sleek, black packaging with a hint of matte on it; looks like a pricey lipstick!
HOW IS IT? WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE?
- Violet with a hint of magenta.
Hot Plum is a unique shade that reminds me of MAC's Up The Amp lipstick; the vibe of the color screams SUMMER too.
- Muted carnation pink.
Avon actually has a shade called Carnation Pink and it's more vivid and pastel in hue; this one is a softer version of it; very vintage and pretty. It will fare better on fairer skin tones in my opinion.
- Dark red with a berry undertone.
- Bright true red.
Red Supreme is your good ol' red; it's a bright red that's approachable and good for casual wear and sunny days.
The lipsticks have a vanilla floral scent; they glide on smoothly and feel like a rich balm, but don't feel sticky or thick. Finish is semi- matte, actually, but becomes a bit more matte minutes after application, but not totally matte. Pigmentation is medium to heavy and I can layer it on without the additional weight. Formula doesn't dry out the lips, but may highlight dryness so moisturize or scrub before wear. True enough, formula doesn't crack nor crease, but needs to be retouched after a meal.
This is a pretty good semi- matte lipstick at an affordable price, plus Avon always has chic, nice colors. Would definitely recommend this to beauties on a budget who want a soft matte lipstick that won't dry out the lips!
