Avon | Iconic Lipstick Review & Swatches

Press Samples

I am so excited to share with you some of the cutest holiday lipsticks I've seen this this month, Avon sent me a few Iconic Lipsticks to try out and I must say, they've got me feeling extra festive.Did you know that Avon is one of the longest running companies in America? Avon has great customer service, quality products with great formulas and high pigmentation, which might explain why they have withstood the test of time. Avon is on-point with their Holiday releases, always bringing us great gifts to give, decorations and of course, make-up! When I see pretty packaging on a product, it lures me in, I can't resist some items when the packaging is just so perfect! Avon launched 5 different shades for $6.99 each, today I will be showing you 3 great shades from the Iconic Lipstick collection as well as Avon's True Color Lip Gloss in the shade "Spark".

The Avon Iconic Lipsticks come in a standard tube, which contains 3.2 grams of product in each. The base of the tube is gold and reflective where as the lid is a super cute pattern/print. I am totally obsessed with how cute these lipsticks are! The plaid reminds me of a cozy scarf where as the leopard print reminds me of my favourite fluffy pair of animal print slippers. In my opinion, they've executed the Holiday themed lippie perfectly.

I'm loving the throw back of classic prints with a modern formula and of course the names are so fitting. From left to right I have, Sugar Plum which is a stunning deep plum colour, Holly Red is a luxurious red and merry mauve is a perfect pink-ish mauve with some shimmer to it.

Over the years I have tried many Avon make-up products, each and every time a purchase a new lipstick and even shadow palettes, I am always left satisfied with how consistent their products are. These lipsticks and the gloss are no exception. As usual, the formula is amazing, they are as creamy as ever, have rich pigmentation and they glide onto the lips effortlessly. Each swatch pictured above is only one swipe, and I couldn't be more pleased. The smooth and long-lasting formula, satin finish and shades of the Holiday launch are especially great for the busy month of December seeing as there is a colour for almost any look/outfit for those family get-together's and work holiday parties. I attended a family Christmas get-together recently and decided to wear "Holly Red' with the lip gloss as a topper, not only did I get many compliments on my shade choice but I also noticed that I only had to re-touch once, which was after I had finished my meal.

Avon is an iconic company, and for a good reason. They have been giving us affordable and great quality cosmetics for years, like I said, I am very pleased with the Iconic Lipsticks and how they performed. The next time I go for a bold red lip or a satin mauve, I will be reaching for these!
Thanks for reading, Samantha<3
