Nail It Tuesday: Avon Nail wear Pro - Fuchsia Fun

I never go for shocking pinks or anything shocking when it comes to nail polishes. Of course, this is an exception as far as lipsticks are concerned where i want to go all shocker on me. As the name suggests this is a bright pink a.k.a Fuchsia shade. It is nicely pigmented but has poor staying power. It chips away in a day or 2 at the max without a top coat. So don't forget to wear a top coat on your nails when using this polish

Small Haul and Gifts from my sister :)

Hi Lovelies!!! I'm blogging after a long time. You all know that I was busy with the process of shifting here to Bangalore. Now I'm still in the process of settling down but feel that I can spare some time between the settling process and running after my 11 month old son ūüôā¬†
Here are the pics of my small haul and the gifts my cousin sister got me. Thanks a lot Madhu!!!
If you are interested in any of these products let me know, I will prioritise them and try to do a post on them first.

darling mauve2

Enjoy medium to full color while giving your lips extra moisturizing care. Now with added moisturizing complex, a blend of nourishing natural ingredients that protects lips while keeping it soft, supple and moisturized. Feels light and comfortable on lips.

Cost: Rs 99/-
Quantity: 4g


High Points:
Very affordable.
Good color coverage.
Color last about 3 hours at least (Considering the cost, I would say that is a +)
Decent looking case.
Sturdy Casing.
No allergic reactions on using.

Lots of shades are available.

Low Points:
Available only through Avon reps.
Maybe they have added more moisturizing elements to the lipstick but i cant find them. Would suggest using a lip balm before using it.
As usual no testers are available and the shade in the brochure is not even close to the real shade.
Even thought the casing looks decent enough, its too girly for me. Will suit 'Girls' but not 'Women'. More for teens and pre-teens. Loved the previous casing.

Would I buy it again???
Maybe for my teenage nieces and occasionally for me too!!!


Avon Ultra Colour Rich Lipstick - Deluxe Chocolate

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.

Avon Mega Impact Lipsticks - Brilliant Brown & Pink Pop

With Flash
Without Flash

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!!!!

Left: Brilliant Brown Right: Pink Pop
High Points:
No allergic reactions to it.
Love the bullet shape of the lipstick
Rich color.
Superior color coverage.
Sturdy packaging
Casing looks nice.
Shimmer particles are not chunky in appearance.
Good staying power. Lasts at least 4 hours.
Has a creamy texture.Cant say its moisturizing at the same time, its doesn't dry my lips. So this is a good thing then.
Color does not bleed (Since its not too creamy)
Awesome shades are available

Low Points:
The Shimmer particles feels a bit gritty on lips.
Not all shades available give good color coverage.
Not happy with the coverage provided by 'Pink Pop'
Pink Pop is not suitable for people with pigmented lips.(Lets wait and see in winter. My lips change shade in the winter. Maybe then it will suit me)
Available only through Avon representatives (Since i know one and lives nearby, this is not a -ve for me)
As usual testers are not available (Check for swatches online before buying)

Would i buy it again???
Sure!!! Love to try out other colors in this range

Avon Lipsticks - Truffle, Terracotta and Cherry Jubilee

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.
