Hi guys ! Happy Monday. How has YOUR weekend been ? Sorry for the lack of posts last week - with my still in hospital ICU ( we are going on week 3 ) it's crazy running from work , hospital and school prize givings.
Avon launched a new liquid lippy - and I was really excited when I saw these. These are like a melted down lipstick - the colour is gorgeous and opaque and the formula is super hydrating and nice and buttery . The formula also has a built- in primer to smooth the lip surface. There are 10 colours in the range - and I will be sharing the three colours I ordered with you . There are more bold fin colours - but I know myself and go for a more neutral lip on a daily basis - so I picked three colours that would suit that requirement.
So let's jump into the swatches :
This is a gorgeous nude colour. While I prefer more beige-y nudes - this one is perfect to throw on on those days where I prefer a more natural look.
This pink colour is such a Lynette colour. This is the one I reach for the most - and some days it's a struggle to not just pick this one over and over again. It's such a gorgeous milky pink colour.
This is my second favourite one. The colour in the tube does look a little darker - this one is more build-able. If you use a little more the colour is a more intense mauve - a thinner layer like I used in the lip swatches gives such a awesome mauve lip.
As you can see it's more brown toned nude. For me personally I prefer a more beige toned nude - but this colour actually suits me better. It's the perfect throw on and go out the door colour that goes with any make-up look.
As I mentioned - this is my favourite colour by far. This is such a me shade as I love milky pink shades on my lips.
As I mentioned - this colour is pretty build-able. Put on a little thicker layer to get a more bolder colour - or a thinner layer like I did here for a perfect wash of colour. I love this mauve lip.
Overall the range is pretty affordable too - as they are currently on special for R84,90 each . The wear time is pretty decent too - it lasts a good 3 hours before a touch up is needed. As this is so hydrating and glossy - I don't mind as my lips tend to get chapped easier in the warm summer months - so this is such a perfect lippy for them. Another bonus - as it's already a liquid it won't melt if you forget it in the car - which is ALWAYS a bonus.
Do you prefer a bolder lip or a more neutral lip look ?
