Avon Simply Pretty ColorBliss Lipstick Review

My first ever review is on my first ever lipstick! You read it right! Consider me a late bloomer but that's the truth, I'm 21 and I just bought my first owned lipstick. It's better late than never, at least, diba. I got to buy and use one. So now, what has been my experience? Let's start.

I bought from Avon because of the rave among my co-workers since a colleague applied for a membership in the Avon company. You know, those catalog things... Peer-pressure pushed me to think that since Avon cosmetics are affordable and usually on sale, it's about time that I buy one for myself since "dalaga" na ako. They agreed with a laugh at my thought and felt very excited, the feeling where you discover a little lady asking you for make-up advice and all you want to do is "bagay sa yo 'to, bagay sa yo yan!". I said I wanted to try a lipstick and they are the ones to choose for me the right color. (Remember, it's my first time so I don't even know what shade or color suits me.)

They chose for me Avon Simply Pretty ColorBliss Lipstick in Fresh Melon (CB06). I don't know why, but they said the color is soooo cute. So I ordered it.

I'm sorry because I can't show you pictures of it in it's packaging since I bought it weeks ago. But it doesn't come with a box, just a cheap plastic wrapper, where ingredients and the expiration date is written.

*ze lipstick. Pardon for the poor quality image. 

*opened. Cute Color. 
*Here's the swatch.

*I only applied a thin coat, because I don't want it to be flashy or showy. That's how I use it at work. Also I have dry lips! Taken outside, at 5:30pm
*taken indoors. 

> I like it's cute color/shade whatever you call it.
>The smell is pleasant for me, not the usual cosmeticky one.
> Affordable. It's on sale when I bought it. Regular price is I think Php135.00. I bought it at only Php 100.00!
> It could last me for months. It gots 4g of lipstick.
> Not shimmery. A good one for me. Gives a matte finish. (If you like shimmers, this is one is not for you.)
> Makes lips soft at first minutes of application. About 45 minutes to an hour for me.

> Softness, color and the moisturized feeling doesn't last long. I lengthen it by applying lip balm first and then the lipstick. I wet my lips a lot (a habit I should immediately inhibit, now that I'm starting to use lip cosmetics).
> After weeks of using it, my lips became dryer. I don't know if the lipstick did it. I also think other factors affected it, since my lips are naturally dry in the first place. But I've said, it made my lips dry-ER.

There you have it. I don't think I'll repurchase it since I know I can find better products than this. Also, I am planning to try Human Heart Nature's Tinted Lip Balm soon. Cha Wait for it!
