AVON Totally Kissable Lipstick

AVON launched 16 new shades of their Totally Kissable Lipstick ($8, Press Samples) earlier this year. They are moisturizing, pigmented lipsticks infused with avocado and coconut oils.




I tried out four shades from the range - Lovey Dovey, a pale shimmery pink, Natural Glow - frosty nude beige, Mauve Allure - creamy mauve pink and Smitten Red - rich, creamy red. Lovey Dovey is a rather nice pink that would pair well with a stronger smokey eye. Natural Glow is a pale, frosty nude, so it washes me out quite a bit on its own. There's also quite a bit of shimmer that is very visible on my pigmented lips. Mauve Allure is my favorite of these - its a mid tone mauvy pink with no shimmer/glitter - gorgeous color for medium/dark skin tones. Smitten Red is a very wearable, rich red in a super creamy formula.

I have no complaints about the formula of these lipsticks - they feel weightless and moisturizing and don't dry my lips out after they've gone. The cream finishes especially have a lovely sheen to them.  These lipsticks wore comfortably for about 2-3 hours on me and I absolutely love the sweet caramel scent. My only gripe was that the lighter, shimmery shades left behind a few flecks of very visible shimmer on my lips after the color had faded. That aside, these are some very nice lipsticks with a fabulous price tag!
