Avon Deluxe Chocolate Ultra Colour Rich Lipstick and Easy Way To use a Dark Lipstick

I got the Avon Deluxe Chocolate Ultra Colour Rich Lipstick as a free gift with purchase.  A really dark dark colour, this is definitely not the sort of color that I would have picked up for myself.  It probably would suit some people, but on my darker Indian skin tone, this sort of a darker color just looks very aging.  Otherwise, the lipstick itself is quite okay, stays on long enough, and doesn't dry my lips out.  Being a very affordable range from Avon, I quite like that these are of decent quality - not something I would say of some other brands out there.

On my lips, it comes out pretty much the same colour.  It's amazing how when I don't like a colour it turns out to be the exact same shade on my lips as it is on my hand!  Anyways, the lipstick is pertty opaque - expected since it is so dark - not very moisturizing but didn't dry my lips either.  Stays on for about 2-3 hours if I don't eat or drink anything.

Am unsure of the price as I did get this free with purchase, but am guessing they would be priced around Rs. 200 (or less especially if you pick them up on discounts) which to me is a decent price for the quality.  Unfortunately, this particular shade is not a favorite of mine.

  9. It does go better with very slight dab dab :D It's just too much work, and I don't really like the shade either, so I would rather just gift it to my mom.

  12. i liked it ya.... did u try with dark brown pencil underneath?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Naaaaaaaaaaah...the colour is so dark I don't need anything under it! When I put the gloss though, I didn't have a separate brush to apply it with, and I didn't want my gloss to pick up the lipstick stain..so I applied not too properly - so it might look like a dark liner around the edges :P :P

  29. Rads,Have seen you so many times with gloss, so I like without gloss pic, it looks good!

    ReplyDelete
  30. I think in the swatch it looks nice - that is how the colour is, I agree. It doesn't suit my skin colour somehow..makes me look very dull :((

    ReplyDelete
  31. you wear it with siahi!!! That will brighten up your whole face!! :D :D

    ReplyDelete
  32. ye ye ye...siahi and this color....show show

    ReplyDelete
  33. I remember I had this similar shade from lakme and I totally freaked out. I really cant dare to wear such a shade.I loouuved the lip swatches. And somehow I like the shade without the gloss more. It's kinda bright in a good way.

    ReplyDelete
  34. It looks like it is in the second pic on top - like dark brown..I tho look like certain kind of ladies if I wear these kind of colours!!!! Ya but in the swatch it looks nice..I know the colour you are telling..is very typical Lakme colour :D

    ReplyDelete
  35. Hi Rads, I have this lipstick too..yes its a very 80's Rekha, Sridevi, Jayaprada color :D:D...but when I was very very young I used to fancy this colored lipstick with a light yellow (????) chiffon saree and sleeveless blouse and Dimple Kapadia like hair...dreams..dreams..

    ReplyDelete
  36. I have this vague theory that it depends upon the skin tone - cool/warm something. I would look yucky wearing this colour, but my mom has a more pink skin tone and she can wear these colours and not look horrid..actually, she looks good.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I am warm toned too and though the color looks okay on me it tends to add some 5-10 years to my age so i have kept this aside for occasions...

  38. Hey Rads :) Did you hear about the Chanel blue quad? http://bit.ly/hlh35T It seems it's coming out in Spring.

    ReplyDelete
  39. OMG....wait me see..no I had not heard!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Is that for real..the blue is soooooooooo beautiful..I don't know if I could wear it..but it's so pretttty!!! Any idea what the singles look like? I like Chanel singles much more than their quads...

    ReplyDelete
  41. Rajeswari - That's exact same thing that happens with me..I look kind of older..not something I would be too happy about :P

    ReplyDelete
  42. Of course you can wear it :) We brown girls can wear anything. Just have to play around with the shades. Use the icy-hued blue for the inner half of the eyelid and the darkest blue for the outer half. Then there's the middle shade - use that for the crease and you are set. Smudge some black or dark blue eyeliner (MAC Smolder or Prussian) and you're good to go :)

  43. mornnnnnnnnning Rads...I see some preparation going on for Chanel shopping!! :P :P

    ReplyDelete
  44. I think that blue looks really pretty Rads...Give it a try..I can imagine it on you..It'd look gooooooooooooooooooood!! :D

    ReplyDelete
  45. Fieran - Thank you...that would be the perfect way to use it..I am in love with those shades - just hope they are just as good when I swatch them..waiting waiting now :D :D :D

    Aarthi - Chanel - Freeze.

    Cali - It will take a long time to launch in India..maybe next year - it was written spring, right? So might be next January???!! I love blues :D

    ReplyDelete
  46. he he....waiting!! :P :P I just now got my oriflame package!! :happydance: Didn't order much, just one facewash, eyelash curler and eyeshadow brush!! :P :P :P

    ReplyDelete
  47. Rads :) I hope the quad comes out in a few months from now. Spring is in April here (Scandinavia). If you know anybody going to US, ask them to buy for you. I haven't seen it on the US website yet. Hopefully it will be out soon in Europe.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Nope..nobody going/coming back from US now :(( Besides for products that do get released in India, I would rather wait and check for myself and then buy..
