Pucker Up! | Avon Ultra Color Lipstick in Dream Fuchsia.

Last week, I dropped by the local Avon outlet to get a few items for my sister-in-law. I really had no plans of buying anything for myself that time. But when I chanced upon this vivid shade of fuchsia in the makeup aisle, I just could not resist. And so I went ahead and bought a new lipstick for myself. Lol.

The shade I'm talking about is Dream Fuchsia, from the Ultra Color Lipstick line. It's the latest addition to Avon's ever-growing line of lipsticks.
Dream Fuchsia, 3.5 grams.
Now what's so special about this new line, you may ask? Avon's Ultra Color Lipsticks boast of new shades, new formulation, and new packaging. Here's how the lipstick looks like with the seal intact.
Looking sleek. :)
There's a window at the top, which allows you to see the shade of your lipstick. Of course, you can always refer to the bottom part, where the name/shade of the lipstick is written.
Peek-a-boo, I see you.
 Here's how Dream Fuchsia looks like in actual.
I fell in love with the color at first sight. :)
It's purplish-pink with blue undertones and super fine shimmers in it. And for a lipstick with sheer finish, this one has a nice wash of color. It's not exactly the kind of lipstick that I would wear during the day while taking my son to school, but this one would be perfect for evening parties (or dates with the husband, lol) as the color is pretty vivid.
See the tiny sparkles?
Like all the other shades in the Ultra Color Lipstick collection, this product comes equipped with the 'True Color Technology' - the color you see on the lipstick is the same color you'll get on your lips. The new formula also includes lip-nourishing ingredients such as shea butter, arctic berry, omega oil, and vitamin E that moisturizes the lips and makes it smooth and supple. Oh, and did I mention this product is SPF15? :)

And now here's how Dream Fuchsia looks like when swatched, and worn.
True Color, all right.
Love love love this shade of purplish pink! :)
As for the price, it's currently being sold for Php 249 a pop. (Regular price is Php 379.) I'm an Avon lady so I actually got this for 25% less.

What I love:
- Sleek packaging.
- For a sheer lipstick, it's highly-pigmented.
- Beautiful purple-pink shade.
- Glides on your lips like a dream.
- Moisturizes the lips.
- Stays on the lips for about 4-5 hours.
- Has a subtle, sweet scent.
- SPF15. 

What you might not like:
- It's not exactly a 'daytime lipstick'.

Have you tried this lipstick, or any other shade from the Ultra Color line? Let me know what you think. :)

The longer span without reapplying makes it more economical for women.

I've never ventured to try fuchsia on my lips before. Did I even spell fuchsia correctly? :). Looks good on you.

It's been awhile since I browse Avon's catalog. Will definitely check their new line of lipstick. :)

That lipstick looks so good on you! My skin tone mandates that I never wear purple lip color, but that shade is beautiful. Love that Avon's lipstick is SPF 15. That is so important!

Lexie Lane said...

Ooh! It makes your lips look so voluptuous! I love the color on you!

How timely! I'm currently looking to add more purples in my lipstick collection. I thought this shade would be really frosty because of the shimmers in the tube, but on the skin and lips, the shimmers aren't really obvious, no? Which is great because I'm not a big fan of frosty lipsticks. I'll definitely check this out. I don't know why but I always forget checking out Avon lipsticks come catalog-browsing time. Hay.

This shade is very interesting. I don't think I have one like it... although I'm kind of iffy about Avon because of my experience with their BB Cream.

Yette said...

I love their Ultra Color lipsticks. I have Carnation & Hibiscus & I love them to bits! Yours is definitely a good color and it definitely looks pretty on your lips :)

I used to be an Avon agent and I never leave the store without buying a lipstick for myself! Hahaha... they do have nice colors and are very affordable! This shade of pink looks like wine color to me and I like that it's not a shocking pink shade. :)

Sumi Go said...

This color looks so nice on you! I don't own any lip products from Avon, but I think I'll have to look for an Avon lady near me. I'd love to check out the other shades and buy me some! :D
