Avon Ultra Colour Matte Lipstick Review

I brought this in my Avon Haul. I’m trying to stay away from my usual reds lately. I looked at my lipstick collection and realised I haven’t got many nude colours, I don’t know why because it’s such an easy colour to wear during the day.

Review
I’ve used it quite a lot! I’ve never actually tried a Matte lipstick before, so it was pretty new to me. I wanted something that I could wear at work that wouldn’t be too showey, and would be easy to manage throughout the day. Turns out it’s totally what I wanted. It stays on for a good few hours, which is what I need at work, because I don’t always have time to keep checking the mirror to see if it still looks presentable. It’s a lovely colour too. One of the girls at work complimented me on it. I was worried that maybe if it’s Matte it would be dry on my lips.. I was wrong. Although it’s not exactly nourishing, it doesn’t dry out my lips.

Conclusion
Would I buy other shades in this range? Definitely. Although I may still try and stay away from the seduction of the reds (I probably won’t…) I might try some of there pink shades!

Have you tried this Lipstick range? What did you think? What colour should I try next?

Review: L’Oréal Infallible 24 Hour Lip Colour

I received this in my June You Beauty Discovery Box. I picked this colour in 110 Timeless Rose. I love receiving Lipsticks in beauty boxes, especially ones with staying power.

Application

Review
I love a good lipstick that has staying power, and this really does last all day. So much so, I couldn’t get it off! The colour is a lovely shimmery pink. I picked this colour because I wanted a shade I could wear day or night. The only down side to these sorts of Lipsticks is that you have to keep using the balm to hydrate your lips because they can get dry from the stain. If you don’t, the colour start to crack and your lips feel disgusting. This is probably due to me constantly rubbing my lips together too. I’m always doing it.

Conclusion
Would I buy this in other shades? I think I would. For £9.99 I think it’s a pretty good price. I’m really impressed with the staying power and looking at some of the other shades they look lovely. I have a wedding in October so I will definitely keep this in mind for when I’m picking out my make up! I just need to stop rubbing my lips together!

Review: Yves Roche Sheer Botanical Lipstick

For the first time in a lipstick, Yves Rocher Research has selected Cherry Oil for its extraordinary shine and light refraction power. Its ultra-sensory texture melts onto the lips and enhances them with a glossy colour that gives you the coverage you want.

Review
First thing I want to say about this lipstick. It smells amazing. This lipstick is infused with cherry oil which gives it a nourishing hydrating feel, as well as smelling devine. So much so I wanted to nibble on it. But I didn’t.. The colour is very wearable. It’s not in your face and the sheer texture makes it appropriate for day and night. It kinda feels like a balm too with how hydrating it is! Two products in one, that’s how I like em’! Lasts a couple of hours before I have to re apply which I’m pretty surprised about!

Conclusion
I really love wearing this. It’s not effort like a lot of other Lipsticks I’ve tried over my time. The sheer texture makes it suitable for day or night, the hydration of it makes it enjoyable to wear, the colour is fun and for £9.90 I don’t think it’s too bad! It’s staying power is okay, though it doesn’t boast about that. Would I buy another shade? I’d have to look at the other colours first but quite possibly!

Review: Avon Ultra Colour Lip Crayon

image

I brought this a while ago and forgot about it and recently found it in a make up bag of things I don’t use everyday. So I thought I would give it another wirl. 

Review 
I brought this in red. It doesn’t tell me the shade on the tube. This lip Crayon is very glittery, which to be honest I hate. It feel horrible on my lips. It feels rough and looks dreadful. Every time I tried to wear it and test it out, I had to immediately take it off. I just can’t stand it. I don’t hate many products I buy, but I really hate this. The colour is nice, but the texture and the amount on glitter that’s infused with it is just too much. 

Conclusion
I don’t really know what else I can say that I haven’t said. I won’t be buying it again or any more glitter based crayons. I’m most likely going to throw it away. It’s tried about 5 times now to learn to love it but I get to the mirror by my front door and I just have to take it off. 

Have you tried any if Avons lip crayons? What did you think? Let me know!
