Only lipstick on the market that has all the added features!! I am not a big Avon fan-they can never seem to get it right with their color selection, but after searching everywhere, they seem to be the only company that makes a lipstick with SPF, plumping, hydrating and long lasting. They do need to work on consistency-it goes on a little too slick, almost mushy, and the color selections are poor. My first tube was a now discontinued color-pink cooler, and it looked like it belonged on Twiggy or Goldie Hawn when she was on Laugh-in ( Iam in my 50's). It was way too frosted so I had to top it with another color. I finally just threw it out. I just ordered the Uptown Pink for lack of any other pinks.
This is not a great consistency for the summer (it gets soft very easily) so while the SPF is wonderful, it will soften up when carrying it around in warm weather ( a minus when I spend winters in AZ.)! I hope Avon can perfect their color selection!
I bought these lipsticks in Uptown Pink, Mad for Mauve, and Cantaloupe. These wear quite nice, and I've worn them for performances on stage, particularly the Uptown Pink. It may be just me but Cantaloupe seemed to have a very poor shade. Perhaps it wasn't right for my skin tone, but it just didn't have enough staying power and seemed to have as much thickness as lotion. And the brochures are still not quite doing a good job of giving us the exact color of the product. It may have been just me, just a chance that I may have had a bad batch, but they're fine and I would buy a few again, but in darker shades. The brochures also promised some lip plumping quality, but I didn't really see much.
My HG lipstick! Mad for Mauve is my favourite lipstick ever. I think a few years ago they had a different formula for it and I personally love that one way better, but this one is good also. Mad for Mauve is the perfect rosey pink color that looks wonderful with my skin tone.
It was my moms originally but she didn't like it and gave it to me, I tried a little bit and fell in love!
My lipstick is almost empty now and I have to use a q-tip or a lip brush to pick up any leftovers from the tube bc i just haven't had the time to buy a new one.
DEFINITELY will purchase again and highly recommended!
I was hesitant to buy this because most of my Avon purchases are skincare related. However, this lipstick was recommended so I got "Pink Pout" and it is lovely. The pigmentation is comparable to high end lipsticks and lasts forever.
This is supposed to be an "anti-aging" lipstick, containing retinol to stimulate collagen growth and thus improve thinning or wrinkly lips. Not from what I've seen, buster! Actually, this lipstick seems to sink into any lip lines you have, accentuating them. The only good things I have to say is that the color I got, Raisinette, is pretty, and staying power is good.
I have this in Twig and love it. I swear I do notice a little plumping going on which is kind of fun. I leave this in my makeup bag at work along with the matching BC lip liner in the same color because I love this look for the office. Good lasting power and I like the SPF 15 for when I head outside for lunch. Revives nicely with a little lip balm later in the day. And the price is crazy cheap!
I have been using this plumping lipstick in the shade, Twig for years. It has the best staying power with moisture too- whaaa? And it actually plumps my lips just enough and there's no weird tingling sensation. Also it doesn't wander off into the corners of my mouth like some glosses do (recent development-yay-that's sarcasm). The shade called Twig is the most natural for my pale skin. It usually runs about 8 bucks, but I always get it on 2 for one sale and stock up.
I have been searching for a lipstick that doesn't cause my lips to peel off in sheets of dead skin! I've finally found it! It seems every lipstick I've loved has been taken off the market. I've been searching for YEARS to replace old favorites! I love this! The texture is great, lasts an adequate amount of time and doesn't dry my lips and make them look dehydrated! I will absolutely be repurchasing this as long as they keep making it. I bought Twig which is a perfect YLBB shade for me and Divine Wine which is a nice wine color that is not bright at all! Love them both! Just depends on my clothing as to which color I choose.
I bought this actually I bought two tubes of Avon's Beyond Lip Plumping lipstick in Gilded. This shade is a rather close to my Estee Lauder Electric Intense Lip Creme-Merengue which I love but Estee Lauder has discontinued it. Avon's is much less expensive a tube cost $8.00. I got two tubes for $6.99 Avon was having a sale which happens often. I do find that the lipstick can be a bit drying but I just use a little lip moisturizer or clear lip gloss or balm.
Mad for Mauve and Divine Wine --finally found colors that work for my fair/cool skintone, Mad for Mauve is a medium soft pink on me; with a subtle mauve tone. Divine Wine is a deeper, more dramatic, almost-red blueish pink. Love the smooth texture and the emollients that do make lips a little fuller. Other colors I tried --including the popular Twig --- were glaring bright pink or orange disasters on me. Don't get discouraged, get samples! (As of 7/07, my Avon Rep's was giving out those tiny tubes.)
