Avon Simply Pretty Colorbliss Lipstick in Cool Coral

For a lot of people, the Avon brand is synonymous with direct selling. One can't think of Avon without thinking of the "Avon Ladies." However, I got this from a dealer/distributor's store at a place near my home. They were on sale and I was able to get this for PHP 85 and the Super Shock mascara for PHP 150 (more on that in the future.)

According to Avon Philippines' Website:

Let your natural beauty shine through. Simply Pretty is a brand
that makes putting on makeup simple, easy and uncomplicated.
So you can always be pretty... naturally you.

In other words, Simply Pretty is Avon's makeup line for teens and those who go for a younger, fresher, more natural look. Their products are fuss-free and affordable- perfect for beginners and low-maintenance girls.


Swatches:

with flash

Likes:
- Cheap at PHP 85 (on sale this is also cheap at its regular price)
- color payoff is good
- staying power is pretty impressive

Dislikes:
- somewhat drying. make sure to apply lipbalm underneath
- taste and smell- not overpowering, but I can tell you that I'd be happier without it.

ETC.    
- This lipstick comes is a black-brown plastic case that with subtle glitters/shimmers which curves in towards the middle. I'm not crazy about the packaging. Ah well, it looks the way teen makeup is supposed to look.

- Although the color is buildable, personally, it's better to apply this lightly because it looks more coral then. If you put on too much, it becomes kind of orangey-red and a little mature.

  9. That's very clever. I'm thinking of registering with them too for the discounts. It'd also be a cool side job but I think the market's too saturated in my area already. =))
