But the search for a "my lips but better" is not yet over. I still want that nude lips but with a touch of color. Blankety, while it is the perfect nude, it is really NUDE. What i want is a subtle hint of color without overly shouting that i have lipstick on.
I have tried a couple of nude lipsticks but it just doesn't seem to work on me...
Boy, was i glad when Sis Thriszha gave me Avon's Simply Pretty Love in Bloom lipstick because it is exactly what i am looking for!
It looks cute with that heart-shaped tip though i still prefer my lipsticks to have that normal pointy tip for easier application. I find that i can get away with using it without a lip liner just by having a very evened-out pointy-tip. The shade that i love is the Pink Rose. I don't even know how to describe the color for i'm not good in describing color details but this is how it looks like.
.. uhhh... mauve pink?!
shiranai! i don't know...
Anyway, i love how it looks on my lips. Here are the pics of my bare lips & also the one with it on..
Doesn't it look nice?
It is able to even out my natural lip color, which is pretty pigmented!
Staying power is pretty decent. I was really surprise when it lasted on me for hours! No heavy eating or drinking of course. I don't need to reapply every now & then.
Just make sure that you use a lip balm underneath to prep your lips prior to application. This is not matte so it won't really dry your lips out but it still helps to put a balm underneath. If im going to compare it to a mac finish it would be like Satin finish.
What's great about this one is that it is really cheap! I bought a back up for this & it's only for Php 130 (approx. $3), though it only has 3.5g, but it's no big deal for you can just buy it again & again at your avon dealer. You can just wait for a certain sale period, because i know that Avon usually give discounts every now & then. If i am able to catch it at a discount price i'll gladly buy 5 more of this! LOL!
So, let's make a summary:
- staying power is ok
- locally available
- doesn't make my lips chap like crazy unlike other lipsticks.
- none that i could think of
Will i buy it again?!
Definitely! It's already a must on my make-up case!
Have you tried any Avon lipsticks?
What's your favorite?
Hope that you all will have a good day!
