I was looking for a plum lipstick lately, just for a change of look. I just love how the plum color makes you look edgy and bad ass (in a good way). I saw a lot of YouTube make-up gurus do looks using this lip color. I have always been drawn to pink or coral shades for my lips but maybe it is time to try out something different for a change.
Here are some of my favorite plum lip makeup tutorial.
On with the review. The lipstick was from my mum, she said that it retails for 294 php which is what Avon lipsticks usually are sold for. I tried looking for this specific lipstick but I can't seem to find it online. Am not sure if it is a new collection because I have never seen anything like it in any of the Avon brochures that I have read.
What I like about it:
❧ the packaging is unique, I love the orchid design around the bullet
❧ the color is very vibrant
❧ it has a scent that reminds me of orchids

What I don't like about it:
❧ it irritates my lips, since it has fragrance (my lips tend to react negatively with products that has fragrances)
❧ it dries up after you put it on which makes your dry lips (and lines) show up
The Verdict, Yay or Nay:
❧ sadly, this is a Nay for me. I love the color, yes, but I hate that it stings my lips. Too bad, the color is the perfect plum color that I am looking for.
I will give this a 3 out of 5 because it is not suitable for sensitive lips. I won't repurchase this as well, too bad because the color is so pretty. I might look for something that is suitable for sensitive skin.
Thank you so much for reading this post dear, I really do love reading your comments. Leave me some love okay? Stay fab & gorgeous my dear roses. God bless!
