Avon Make-up Haul

I came back home yesterday to find this gorgeous goodie bag waiting for me on my bed. Avon has launched Ultra Color Matte Lipsticks, with the claim that the rich color you see on the lipstick is the same color you see on your lips. And these beautiful colors live up to that claim. The containers look clean and polished. They each contain 3.8mg sticks with SPF15. They give a velvety matte texture that is not drying on the lips.
Colors I got - Matte Garnet, Matte Lilly.
Price - Rs. 375. Currently there is a 25% discount, you get it for Rs.279 only.

Ultra Color Matte Lipsticks matte garnet, matte lilly

I also got the new Avon Skin Goodness CC cream, which is a color corrector cream and instantly covers flaws, evens out the skin tone and moisturizes. It has anti-oxidants that fights dark spots and marks, licorice and vitamin C for controlling pigmentation, SPF 50+, PA+++, UA/UVB and provides 24 hours hydration and mattification. It also claims to control shine and is sweat proof. I haven't yet used any make-up product that can actually control my sweating, I sweat a lot. But, I am willing to give this a go and take it up on this claim.
Shade I got - Medium Wheat. (It only has one more shade which is Nude. They should launch more shades, especially for darker skin tones.)
Price - Rs. 399. Currently there is a 25% discount, you get it for Rs.299 only.
Avon Skin Goodness CC cream
Why is CC cream better than BB cream, do you ask?
~ BB creams are all the rage now and I  use an Avon and a Garnier one myself. But, CC cream gives complete tonal correction, fights the dark spots and has a higher SPF protection than what a BB cream can offer. The coverage is beautiful, trust me. It provides light to medium coverage.

  1. Avon have some quality products from time to time :D I love their lipsticks, the colors are always so interesting. Thanks for this review too ^_^

  2. I would want to test these product because i never purchased Avon!


  3. TOTALLY lusting after those lippies!!! <3

  4. Glad to hear the lip colors aren't drying, this is a big problem for me. I recently purchased Avon's Ultra Color Absolute Lipstick in coral and thus far I'm liking it.

  5. Okay, I can't take my eyes off your gublu haath but I'm such a Ponds BB+ and Colorbar loyal that I'd NEVER even think about buying anything else! Sorry. :-(

  6. I love the color of those two lippies. In my experience Avon and Mary Kay both have wonderful lipsticks. Really nice quality. I haven't tried CC creams. I know BB doesn't give me enough coverage.

  7. What camera do you use? If you don't mind me asking!


    1. I don't mind at all. Nikon D5100. It's mentioned in the about me section. It's low light performance is really good.

  8. Matte garnet is my favorite !

  9. I used to LOVE Avon when I was younger. I got excited everytime we got one of the little magazines and my mum would let me choose a treat! xx
