|Avon Ultra Color Matte Lipstick Matte Lily and Matte Garnet|
Avon recently sent me two of their lipsticks from the Ultra Color Matte Range. Now I really like some of the regular shades from the Ultra Color range, and had expectations from these lipsticks too! And the best thing was – they delivered!
What Avon Claims: The Ultra Color Matte lipsticks moisturizes lips while depositing vivid, dramatic color. Velvety matte texture envelops lips in full rich color without drying. Gives full coverage with SPF 15.
Price: 375/- for 3.8 gm. (But, you get it for less when they are on offer!)

My Take: The packaging is similar to the normal Ultra Color lipstick. Open the top and twist to get the lipstick out. Matte Lily is a cool toned pink bordering towards fuchsia, while Matte Garnet is a lovely shade of dark red. Both the lipsticks glided easily on my lips and went opaque with one application. They are actually not very matte to look at, especially Matte Garnet, which is a creamy shade on my lips (and looks fantastic against my dusky skin tone). However, I hate lipsticks that make my lips dry and these didn’t at all! In fact, just the opposite. They kept my lips hydrated through the four hours I wore them. The lipsticks transfer, so do not expect them to last after a meal. However for their price, the quality is superb, and you should check out the rest of the range from AVON. They have ten shades to pick from.
