{Review} Avon Extra Lasting Lipstick

I thought I’d begin the Canada Day long weekend with a bright red lip.This one is called “Fiery Red” by Avon.This lipstick, similar to yesterday’s LOTD (click here) is from Avon’s “Extra Lasting” line.

Avon claims that the Extra Lasting lipstick:

  • is extra lasting
  • is infused with Vitamin E and wheat protein
  • provides 24 hours of comfortable wear, for hours upon hours

My experience:

  • beautiful shade
  • moisturizing
  • pigmented
  • not extremely long-lasting
  • semi-matte finish

Not owning any Avon lipsticks before, I am impressed with the colour pay-off and how pigmented the lipstick is. It also feels very nice on the lips with a desirable finish. With “Extra Lasting” being in the name of the lipstick line, I had high expectations of its lasting finish. But about an hour later, when I took a sip of my drink, the lipstick transferred onto my straw quite easily. By about 6 hours after the application, I still had a tiny bit of colour on my lips but with the lipstick more prominent on the edges.

There are definitely other lipsticks out there that I have tried which are more long-lasting. However, the shade, pigmentation, and finish of this lipstick is just enough for me to keep coming back! 😀

One tip to keep your lipstick lasting just a little bit longer, is to blot then layer. Blotting your lipstick on a tissue in between layers will keep some of the colour on your lips but remove excess moisture/oils that can easily transfer.
