I am not used to wearing a bold lip color thus a red lipstick intimidates me. It makes me feel like I won’t be able to pull it off completely. I am just comfortable with nude or pink shades.
However, BDJ Box changed my perception regarding red lipsticks when they added the Avon Ultra Moisture Rich Vitaluscious Lipstick in Reviving Red in my September BDJ Box: Luminescent Beauty.
Here is the lipstick shade…
When I saw the lipstick shade, I immediately thought that it was like Snow White’s lip color. It has a rich red shade and though I think it that it is a pretty color, there goes my mind thinking… “Oh no!!! Sooo red!!! :(“
Aside from the rich red shade, I also noticed its scent. It has a sweet-candy scent. Cool! 😉
Here are swatches of the Avon Ultra Moisture Rich Vitaluscious Lipstick in Reviving Red.
The color is buildable so it depends on your shade preference on how much you have to apply. If you just want a hint of red color on your lips, then one swipe is enough. If you want to have a bolder red color, you might need to have three swipes. It is not long-wearing so you have to reapply particularly after eating.
One thing that I just don’t like with this lipstick is that even though it has moisturizing properties in it, my lips still chapped (just a bit, though). With that, I recommend using a thin layer of lip balm before you apply this lipstick to prevent chapped lips.
Here is how it looks like when applied on the lips. This picture is taken on natural day light (no flash). When I tried this lipstick, I am now convinced that I can also wear a red lip color! 😀
I have two FOTD shots using the Avon Ultra Rich Moisture Vitaluscious Lipstick in Reviving Red. The one on the left is taken on natural day light (no flash). The other one is taken with a camera flash.
I recommend this lipstick shade if you will be attending evening events with lots of photo ops since it looks nicer with a camera flash. 😀
This lipstick is priced at Php299 which I think is super affordable. So for those who are into red lipsticks, this is definitely a must-have!!! 😀
