So, I recently made an order from Avon online, something I never really thought I'd type. When I was younger, ladies in the neighbourhood (weird wording there) used to hold little Avon parties and buy boring looking frosty pink lipstick in plain packaging. Because of this, I tend to associate it with (and excuse me for being blunt here) with older people. With mumsy mummies and ageing middle aged woman.
However, after seeing reviews of products on other posts I decided to give it a go. Plus, it's so cheap! Gotta love a cheap lipstick or two (saying that, I just made a rather expensive Nars order. Oops).
Anyway, here's the loot:
Here are the lovely lipstick shades:
This one's called Winter Wine. Really nice and pigmented, yet subtle at the same time. Really like this one, though I expected it to be darker from the name (like a plummy colour perhaps?) and the shade of the bullet itself.
It is very moisturising and feels great on dryish lips like mine. The colour is subtle in my opinion, but likeable.
So, all in all, I am VERY happy with my cheapie Avon order. And I may have a lipstick problem. When will I wear all of these? Well, everyday. And although they are quite similar colours, they are different too in their own beautiful way. Yes, that makes it ok then.
*My Topshop order arrived (and, er, it includes more lipstick). Outfit post.
