AMW Reviews: Avon Ultra Moisture Rich Pink Crystal Lipstick (Rare Red)

Who says red lipstick is out for the summer?
Heavy, matte red lipstick for me is definitely not in my lipstick priority as of the moment but sparkling red lipstick with unusual glimmer is something worth the second glance!

On some days the lazy genes struck me, I tend to grab on bright lipsticks nowadays for that extra boost of sunshine!  Since we're talking about "Moisture! Moisture! Moisture!" this summer, I need to look for products that gives a youthful glow!

Even lipsticks....

I've had this Avon Ultra Moisture Rich Pink Crystal Lipstick for quite some time and I can't believe I kept it this long! 

Shade on review: C401 Rare Red
Avon says ---
Infused with real gemstones for ultimate lip indulgence, each luscious sweep leaves lips with spectacular sparkle.
Net Weight: 3g

AMW says ---
  • Doesn't feel sticky.
  • No feathering or bleeding.
  • None of the weird scent.
  • Good pigmentation.
  • Glides easily and smoothly.
  • Doesn't dry the lips.
  • Has a lovely sparkle that's not too tacky.  Gives a nice 3d effect.
  • Finishes off with a lovely shine. 
  • Due to its glossy finish, this lip product isn't long lasting.  Transfers when you eat and drink.
Good pigmentation, glides on lips smoothly, gives a nice glossy (non-tacky) effect.

  • Moisturize your lips with your favorite lip balm as you tend your hair or the rest of your makeup.
  • Blot off excess "moisture" or "oil" with a clean tissue paper prior to lipstick application to prevent lipstick from gliding off.
  • Blot off excess "shine" after first application by using a tissue paper or your clean hands, re-apply as needed.
  • Use a lip brush for a more defined lips!
  • For re-application: it is best to remove existing lipstick instead of piling them up to prevent feathering.
Will I repurchase?
Yes, different shades.

To whom do I recommend this to?
I highly recommend Rare Red for red lipstick lovers who wants to wear red but has an "oomph" factor.
