I'm sorry but I have to agree with earlier posts/reviews for this l/s. This product has not been completely discontinued in the Philippines. I bought a few of these a year ago, I think. I have the Rose one (but it was actually a violet color), Sheer Buff, Barely There and Strawberry Delish.
Sheer Buff was a very good lilac bordering light pink color but my pigmented lips are too strong for this color to even be seen on me. Strawberry Delish was a very good rrred color. Barely There was a bright pink color. I thought naming the product "Barely There" connotes nude color but the color was just too bright.
I am giving this product a very bad rating because it dried out my lips every time I use this even if I put a bunch of balm underneath. I'm not so impressed with the staying power either. I gave all these lipsticks away. Never bought a single product from Ultra Moisture Rich Lipstick line again even if our local Avon gets these on sale on every brochure they release.

This line has already been discontinued here in Australia, but its Sheer Buff lipstick is my HG. I have so many back ups that I don't think I'll ever run out of lipstick!
LOVE LOVE 5 stars. Inexpensive, definately moisturising - no lip balm needed underneath. Lovely colour and excellent quality. :)If anyone can get their hands on this - I highly recommend. :)

I have this in Crushed Rose.
And it crushed my heart.
I don't like the color, the shine, the staying power. Better buy chapsticks than this.I'm just finishing this tube, but I'm never buying this again. Good to put on top of those very drying matte lipsticks though as it balances things.

I'm rather disappointed with this product.Yes, it feels moisturizing.............................................................. that is, for the first two minutes only. Afterwards, my lips chap. The shades seemed pretty nice but as mentioned by the previous reviewer, it kinda looks bad by giving an unnatural look to the lips, like cheap lipstick sitting on chapped lips. Tsk tsk tsk, Avon should find a way to improve this.
For now, one lippie only. Sorry, Avon.

eugh no!!! these smell so gross and have such terrible consistency. like when applied it just looked like i had some patchy cheap lipstick sitting on my lips
and I dont usually care about smells, but this stuff smells so strongly and so terribly I had to wipe it off
bottom line: I tried it several times, but I just ended up throwing it out

Sheer Buff is my HG, but of course, it's discontinued :( It's moisturizing, sheer, slightly glossy, and just the prettiest neutral MLBB color I can imagine.

I honestly don't think there is any other brand out there(including cheap as dirt drugstore brands) that has lipstick that has such crappy staying power. I ordered it in Warm Sparkling Rose which is warm toned rose with gold shimmer. Its very moisturizing and has a lot of slip on my lips but staying power is zero. With lipliner it last less than an hour with no eating/drinking. With no lipliner, its even less, maybe half hour.
Unlike some reviewers, smell/taste doesn't bother me but lasting power is so crappy I wonder why I should even bother putting it on. My $1 lippie from Wet/Wild last longer than this! Unfortunately, the color doesn't look the same on my lips either. I don't think this is Avon fault, through. My lips are somewhat pink and cool toned so lot of lighter lippies end up looking like cooler color on my lips(strange as it sounds) or don't show on my lips at all. Warm Sparkling Rose looks like very light cool rosy pink that looks like its barely there. Overall, I'm not pleased with lippie at all
UPDATE: Hmm, perhaps I was a little hasty. I unearthed it again from my makeup drawer after not wearing it for few months and this time around I kind of like it, believe it or not. This is definately very moisturizing lipstick that I can actually wear without lipbalm underneath. Lasting power is not the greatest but I started really liking the color. With same color lipliner it looks just like color of my lips but better. Makes my lips look very shiny and full(I already have full lips but never hurts have it little fuller) and very natural looking. Not sure if will repurchase, too many pink lippies already but will definately use up what I have.

I got samples of this product and I have tried some of the shades. The ones that I like are:
Metallic blush - close to ruby or a dark pinkish colour
Sheer buff - gives a hint of rosy colour
They go on creamy and moisturise quite well, so I'll get it in full size when it's on sale.

I really wanted to like this lipstick - I bought it in the shimmer shade Frozen Rose. It looked like a lovely pink online and in the brochure, but yet again, the colour was very different when I actually saw it and tried it on. In the brochure it looks like a medium shimmery rosy pink that would probably suit most skintones, but in reality, it is a very light shimmery peachy pink that I think would suit fair skintones definitely not GGG tones like myself. This is the fourth time that I've been disappointed with an Avon lipstick, I've been looking for lipsticks that are not tested on animals but unfortunately I just haven't found any Avon lipsticks that actually look nice on me or that look close to what they do in the brochure. Luckily I bought this off Ebay for just under 2 pounds so don't feel so bad. If anyone would like Frozen Rose in a swap please let me know, still brand new only tried on on the hand.

I really like the consistency of these lipsticks, and I actually don't mind the smell at all! I think they have changed some of the colours (at least in Australia) and the range seems to be a lot nicer than when they first came out. There are some lovely metallic shades as another reviewer has mentioned, my favourite is Metallic Blush, it's gorgeous! Also the sheer colours are lovely, I have Sheer Pink and Sheer Berry.

It feels silky and light to wear, and the colour looks even. Feels smooth and a little tight. Not so keen on the perfumed chemical taste, nice but a bit too strong for my liking. Its hard selecting color if you own a few as they only have teeny little names on the base, no sample color swatch.
One review says the sunblock is ineffective - if thats true I wish Avon would come clean and replace it with an effective photostable sunblock. One of the reasons I buy this product is the SPF claims and I don't want wrinkly burnt lips!

I have this lipstick in Pale Rose, and I have to admit, I did not care for the color when I first got it. It seemed to be too frosty or something. I'm a pack rat so I decided to keep this lipstick at work even though I wasn't thrilled with the product to begin with. I open my drawer and see it staring at me every single day I'm there. One day I saw it and decided to give it another chance. Well, I use it almost every day at work and I really like it a lot better than I did when I first received it. The rose color looks really nice, the frost in it is not as harsh as I originally thought, and the moisturization benefits are incredible. I don't have this in any other colors, so I am only basing this review on the one I do have. If you have this product and don't love it, give it a fair chance....you might change your mind like I did!

I wanted to like these lipsticks, but I am finding the colors as ugly as the clunky packaging, although the color of the steel blue case is nowhere near as ugly as the hideous bright pinks and muddy browns of the actual lipsticks. I call these sh*tsticks, not lipsticks.

Well, I have registered as an Avon rep just for myself to save money. Usually I wear high-end lipsticks because I am a very choosy person. I need: good cover, nice slip and a good stay. Strange enough, I happened to like these. In Eastern Europe they have just launched a new color selection called Metallics. There are 6 of them: Metallic Blush (kind of neutral pinkish rose), M/ Pink (more orange than Blush, kind of coral-pink), M/ Mink (a nice neutral brown), M/Berry (blackberry, I would say), M/ Nude (speaks for itself) and M/ Red (nor so scary as it may sound, a cool red color) and they are all beautiful and very wearable and I own all of them. They make my lips so full and pleasantly soft and I have just turned 35. Well done, Avon. I have also ordered samples of regular UMR's. In general, a very good purchase if on sale. I only wish they could re-design the case, which is definitely ugly.

I thought I would write a review on Avonís Ultra Moisture Rich Lipstick SPF 15 before I threw it out. I needed a lipstick to carry in my motorcycle jacket. I wanted an SPF for protection from the so-desired-but-so-bad-for-me sun during the long rides on the highway, a moisturizing formula because of the wind factor, a natural but sexy color for the biker babe look and a low enough price so that if it melted in the tube, I would be able to throw it away without hurting. I bought Cherub, which on me is a light creamy pinky beige nude, at less than half of its original price. I used it a few times then decided to put it to rest. The slip is fine; the moisture is fine; I just canít get used to the taste. I donít even know how to describe it; itís so strange and unpleasant to me. Maybe itís due to the active ingredients in it: octinoxate and oxybenzone. HmmmÖ according to the newest findings, these two sunscreen ingredients do not effectively protect lips from the sunís UVA rays. And Whoa, Maggie! Check out the way-too-long list of inactive ingredients! Sorry Avon, nice try and beautiful color, but I want to ENJOY a lipstick, expensive or not, and I want to KNOW that it is protecting me, especially when you say that it will. Better luck next time! Sincerely. :(

I bought three of the new "sheer" versions of these on sale for about $4 each Cdn-- pretty amazing price. The colors I got are: 1) Sheer Nude: my favorite - a sheer light peach. Very subtle--just adds a hint of color. Probably would only work for us pale-skinned girls, except as a gloss. 2) Sheer Mauve: I would describe this as neutral rather than "cool" - it's a deep nude with brown tones. Reminds me a bit of Clinique's Almost Cocoa lipstick, but much cheaper. 3) Sheer Spice: A lovely sheer deep coral that makes you look like your lips are stained with fruit punch. A bit bright for me, but probably would look good on many. These lipsticks have SPF 15 which is a real bonus in the summer, but does give them a bit of chemically scent. They seem quite moisturizing and definitely lighter than regular lipstick, sort of a cross between a balm and a lipstick. Not as sticky or shiny as gloss. UPDATE: No longer use these due to the strange smell/taste

I have this lipstick in the "knockout pink". I have a hispanic complexion, and we have olive tones. Pinks have NEVER suited me, but I LOVE THIS PINK, it actually suited me when i tried on the sample. its great, my first beautiful pink lipstick..not too dark and not very bright or cheapy looking. just the perfect color, and reasonably priced! Only 3.99. Not bad for a quality lipstick, it looks semi matte/satin, not very shiny at all, just perfect for my lips. Good moisture, and staying power. Wonderful lipsticks. does not bleed or feather. and its got spf which is a plus.

I have this lipstick in "Heaven," a neutral goldish nude, and it's almost batting lead-off in my lipstick rotation. Typically, my routine is to apply lip color, then top it off with a gloss. With this lipstick, there's no need for a second step-- it takes care of the shine and the conditioning feel all by itself. Bonus points: The color lasts for hours-- even through eating.
(And for some reason when I use this shade, I always think of Baby's sister in Dirty Dancing, stomping her foot and whining, "Where's my beige iridescent lipstick?!?")

I hate to ruin the good rating this product has gotten so far, but I absolutely loath this lipstick. I got it in Sun Coral (which looks nothing like its online swatch, but that is fairly typical for Avon.ca and I'm okay with the guessing). It's a frosty, pastel peach which is too light for me to wear on its own, but I thought it would be nice over other lipcolours. Unfortunately, the texture of the lipstick is akin to mineral oil with powdery colour/shimmer mixed into it. It looks and feels horrid on my lips. I'm glad it's worked out for these other reviewers, but I will definitely not be repurchasing! At least it was only CAD$4 for me. :(

Okay, My wonderful representative sent me samples, so I got to try them all.
First of all they all feel wonderful on the mouth! Shiny, creamy and moist!
The trick was finding a nice mauve so I ended up blending two shades....
Anyway, here are my individual reviews:
SPICY: deep burnt orange that is not quite brown. Highly pigmented. creamy texture
KNOCKOUT PINK: fuschia
CHERUB: peach-pink, medium pigment, I am going to use this as a blender.
PRETTY: Extreme-Neon fuschia
BUTTERSCOTCH: muted, neutral slightly cool orange
PINK: Bright but light pink-orange
CAPPUCCINO: cool, light to medium brown, very high pigment, gorgeous brown hands down!
PEONY: frost, medium-deep plum
HEAVEN: pale-light neutral orange, with medium pigment
BERRY MAUVEY: pale-lilac, medium pigmented
PALE ROSE: exactly like "BERRY MAUVEY" but darker by a hair and has frost too.
MAUVE: muted, medium orange
CRUSHED ROSE: medium cool berry
ROSE: exactly like "CRUSHED ROSE" with an irridescent violet overtone, making it look fuschia
PLUM FROST: a deeper version of "ROSE"
