Avon Simply Pretty Color Magic Lipstick in Sweet Blueberry Review

I'd usually asked my mom if she knew an Avon sales agent whenever I come back home to the Philippines. You see, I love Avon. They sell affordable products with fair to good quality.

When I saw the Color Magic line I was like, "I'm getting this!" I want to experience the magic happen before my eyes. I've chosen the Sweet Blueberry lipstick which transforms from blue to berry during application.

Thoughts

This lipstick has a semi-matte or satin finish with tiny specks of sparkly dust. It glides smoothly on the lips and has a very light sheen finish. It eventually dries down to a matte finish which makes it lasts longer.

Pros
  • Cheap. Bought it for PHP 99.
  • Smells like candy. Love it!
  • It only takes one glide before the transformation happens. It's like magic! From blue, it changes to berry color. I'm fascinated by the color change. I mean wow! Just wow! It does change according to your skin chemistry because when I applied it on the back of my hand the color didn't change to berry at all. However, when applied to my forearms it transformed.

Note: The more you glide the product to your lips the more pigmented it becomes.

  • Lasts long.
  • Doesn't melt inside my bag. With Singapore's hot and humid weather, melted lipstick is a big no, no.

Cons
  • Dries out my lips.
  • Average packaging. It only costs PHP 99, you shouldn't expect much from the packaging.
  • The lipstick reacts to your skin chemistry because of that you'll notice an uneven application.



Conclusion

I almost like this product. It's affordable, long-lasting and has a sweet smell to it. Unfortunately, this dries out my lips.
