It been a really long time since i bought a Brown shade to add to my collection of Lipstick. As always i'm crazy about lipsticks and lately i'm crazy about bold shades. Back in the days when i was new to make up and lipstick, i played safe by buying barely-there lipsticks. And later on i moved to dark shades of brown and then to shades of pinks. Now, i love going to my first love shade 'Brown' again, but this time more bold and dark shades will be my choice. I cant explain this sudden urge to try to new shades. I'm planning to try out daring shades of Plum and Berries (Daring, considering my dark complexion!!)
AS you have already seen, i'm huge lover of Avon Lipstick and have yet again have added another one to my collection. Now to the swatch and review of this Lipstick and shade....
Its a really dark color, which I love by the way. It a Brown shade with Maroon-ish undertone.
I love dumping all the things i buy and admiring it. It may sound silly but i'm sure lots of ladies out there does this. My dear hubby makes fun of me when i do this. This is like a therapy to me. Whenever i feel down, i dump my stash of cosmetics and keep admiring them. Let me know if you lovely ladies to this or something like this.
Avon Introduced this Mega Impact Lipstick last month (July) and was on offer - 2 for Rs 399/- for 3g. I took advantage of this offer and got myself ' Brilliant Brown' and 'Pink Pop'. I love the bullet shape of the lipstick. It looks so stylish. The Bullet shape provides precise applications. I feel that precision is nothing to hype about. Its just like the usual lipstick tips. But it looks so cool!!!! (Still on high about the bullet shape :-D)
Considering that i have chosen these two shades from the same brand(Avon-Mega Impact Lipstick), they are completely different and this is just not about their shades. 'Brilliant Brown' has superior colour coverage and no weird smell but 'Pink Pop' on the other hand looks 'Hardly there' on me and has a weird smell. This must be some kind of unusual anomaly. Both the shades are shimmery and of these two, Brilliant Brown is my favorite. And it looks awesome on me!!!!

I love and hate Avon lipsticks at the same time. The shades on the brochure are not even close to the lipstick shades...not even by a long shot. In spite of these short comings, i love buying them because of their variety and affordability. I bought two shades in Simply Pretty Colour Bliss Lipsticks - Truffle & Rich Terracotta and one from Colour Last Lipsticks - Cherry Jubilee.
Well!!!, Rich Terracotta had nothing to with the expected Terracotta shade. It was more of a mix of Pink and Maroon. I was disappointed with this purchase as at the least i was expecting some kind of brownish maroon shade but got something completely different.
The Truffle shade was also different from what i expected. I knew it would be a mix of brown and pink but expected more of Brown in it. Disappointed again!!! It was more Pink than Brown. Avon has too many shades of this combination.
I'm beginning to doubt if the lipstick were labeled wrong or those guys in Avon are colour blind. Anyway checkout the swatches before you think of buying them.
The third purchase, Cherry Jubilee kept me happy and made me forget about the earlier disappointments. This shade is Brown with a hint of Red in it. It looks like a matte finish with creamy texture and is a very mature and formal lip shade. This is meant more for a day-wear than night.
