BEAUTY: Avon Lipstick in Charged Cherry

Lipstick is very much a new beauty venture for me, I'm still not used to wearing it and do manage to get it everywhere! Nonetheless I do love the look lipstick can give and how it somehow 'completes' a look, especially for a special occasion. I won this Avon Ultra Colour Rich Mega Impact Lipstick in Charged Cherry well over a year a go now and it sat unloved at the bottom of my dressing table draw. At the time I won it I wasn't wearing lipstick at all, in fact the idea of wearing it put fear into me. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to be available from Avon anymore but you can buy it from amazon and eBay. However Avon do have a fantastic range of lipsticks and some great offers going on at the moment, which you can see here.
Firstly, how stunning is the shape of this lipstick?! It is perfect for creating exact lines and applying it neatly to your cupid's bow area of your lips. As there are more exact points with this lipstick, it also makes it very easy to touch up your lipstick (when you've forgotten you're wearing it and wiped your lips with your hands!).
I chose Charged Cherry when I won this, I thought it was going to be a deep red but it's actually more of a pinky red. That is one downfall of buying make up online, it's so hard to know what the actual colour will be like in real life. Charged Cherry also has a fine shimmer/glitter to it, ideal for special occasions!

As you can see, the colour enhances the colour of my lips rather than adding a drastic colour on top. It's a very wearable lipstick that has fairly good staying power. Overall, I'm impressed with this Avon lipstick and have challenged myself to wear lipstick even more often now! I'm going out for a meal on Saturday (for my birthday that was on Monday) and I'm aiming to wear a lipstick - I usually chicken out last minute, so follow me on instagram (treasure_e_m) if your interested to see how I do :)

Have you tried any of the Avon lipsticks?

Feel free to leave me a comment :)

  1. I haven't tried this lipstick but it looks very pretty! I love lipsticks that look more like a stain and are a naturalish color if that make any sense! haha great review!
