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
- beautiful shade
- 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.
