Avon Colortrend 'Kiss 'n' Go' Lipstick in Lucky Kiss | A review

Saturday, November 9, 2013

hello! long time no see, again. I know. I promise, from now on I will post more regularly. I got tons of pictures with my boyfriend's phone and now I'm ready for the next few weeks :) how have you all been? I've missed blogging so much!



 today I'm reviewing my most loved lipsticks of this fall. it's avon colortrend 'kiss 'n' go' lipstick in lucky kiss. I bought it on a whim when a girl at school offered me a catalogue to go through. I knew I wanted something dark and when I realised it was on sale I bought it. well, I know I'll look at swatches the next time I'm doing something similar because I thought it was terrible when I got it!

the packaging of this lipstick for me personally looks very tacky. it's white, plastic and looks like something a little girl would get off a magazine. it doesn't look sturdy at all but I carry it to school and nothing happened this far. it is pretty thick plastic, though, so maybe I'm underrating it? it definitely doesn't look luxurious in the slightest.



avon colortrend lipstick in lucky kiss is a dark wine red color with a ton of gold glitter all throught-out it. at first I thought it looked like something my grandma would wear but boy was I wrong. I didn't want to waste my money so I immediately thought I will make it work somehow. but after the first application I realised it is gorgeous! my natural lips are pretty red and dark so when I apply this lipstick I get the most perfect dark lip ever. the glitter can only be seen up-close and I have no problem with that. the lipstick's formula is great - it glides on (even on my dry lips) and stays on for a good 2-3 hours. the pigmentation is outstanding. one swipe across the lips and I'm good to go with a very dark wine colored lip. sometimes I blot it with a tissue a little just to get rid of the glitter and to have a more settle color.

the finish of 'lucky kiss' is something between a matte and a regular. it is initially pretty matte but the glitter makes your lips look fuller, bigger, greater and slightly shiny. it doesn't settle in the cracks of my lips and wears really comfortably, no bleeding or anything. it also wears off unnoticeably, doesn't leave any residue what-so-ever which is great. I put a chapstick on before application to make it look even more shiny and so my lips don't dry out as much but I notice that I don't even need it that much.

overall, avon's 'lucky kiss' lipstick is a permanent staple for me this autumn/winter season. it's my first dark lipstick and I can't get enough of it. I think it makes a statement, goes with every outfit and is truly amazing. even my boyfriend complimented it even though his initial thought was similar as mine when he first saw it in the tube :) I think it is seriously worth the purchase, it is very wallet-friendly and for someone like me, with limited funds and an urge to build my makeup collection, it's perfect. one tip to myself - always look at the swatches online before buying something from a catalogue, because the next time it can not work out as well!

*promise to update the post with swatches and myself wearing it, don't have a camera at the moment!
do you have anything from avon? how do you like ordering online/from a catalogue?
