Today I am trying out some of Avon’s lipsticks. I picked this color because I thought it be a good color for someone with my skin tone.
Of course the color is not as bright as what you see in the catalog but its a pretty nice color. I think it may be a popular shade also for people that like a little lip color. I thought it looked pretty nice on me. Below are some pictures. The cost was $4.99 on sale.
As a makeup artist I am always trying new makeup and recently the Avon Campaigns have been very inviting. So I gave in and decided to try out a few things and give them a try.
Below is my first item, the Avon True Color Quad in Mystery.
I tried this out on my hand with a primer. The colors are not as vivid as they look. I also tried them on my mother which is of more of olive skin and felt like I really had to build the color. I think I would probably combine it with a cream shadow to intensify the colors, but if you’re of very light complexion, this may work just fine. I did notice without the primer it didn’t last as long either. That being said, I would definitely use a primer. Overall for the $5.99 sale price it was ok. It would be a great quad to start with. The packaging reminds me of chanel’s quads.
Below are some pictures.
Tom Ford Lipstick Review and Swatches
Tom Ford lipsticks come in a range of shades. These were a big splurge for me as they are $48 dollar each. I love the color and the vanilla scent to them. They are creamy and I love the packaging.
The packaging is very sturdy; they come in a nice square tube and as seen on the picture above, have the logo on the tip of the lipstick. I love both shades that I picked. I bought mine online at Neiman Marcus.
