Avon – Simply pretty – Colorbliss Lipsticks – Review and Swatches

Recently Avon had a wonderful offer on these lipsticks which tempted me and my friends and we decided to stock up all our favorite shades from this collection J

Colorbliss lipsticks comes in wide shades like pinks reds mauve browns and plums suitable for all skin tones J

Price:

Rs.125 or around $2.75 for 4 g

They are on offer this month and available for Rs.99 J



Few points on Colorbliss lipsticks:

  • Not all shades are much pigmented but most of them are!!
  • Wide selection of shades for all skin tones, a pocket friendly option J
  • Sturdy packing though the design looks little outdated but that’s ok with me since it’s    easy to carry around!
  • Again the staying power varies with shades, deep colors stay for more than 3 hrs when compared to the lighter and nude shades.
  • These are not the most creamiest lipsticks available in market but they glide on smoothly and does not bleed J
  • Few shades did make my lips feel a little dry but I was okay with that since I use lip balms before applying my lipstick.
  • Per Avon these lipsticks contains sunscreen and have Vitamin E, Aloe extracts and jojoba oil (which has anti-bacterial properties)
  • The shade pics from brochure would be quite misleading; it is not the exact shade as far as my experience goes. It is always better to check for the swatches on the net before buying the shades.
  • Available only thru Avon consultants


This is a pic from Brochure – You can compare the shades with my swatches and see how misleading it is at  times!!


Following are the swatches of the lipsticks me and my friends bought. Hope this helps you guys in choosing the shades J

Have you tried Colorbliss before (I know many of you would haveJ) If so let me know your take and favorite shade in the comments section below J

DYK:  Lipstick has been around for thousands of years. History has shown that the ancient Egyptians used henna to paint their lips. Other substances used to make lipstick have included hog’s lard and rose petals J  Also lips are not exactly red – they just appear that way because of the thin skin (three times thinner than our normal skin) on the lips and the amount of tiny blood vessels found in this area J

Take care and Thanks for reading J
