Avon EverLasting Lipstick - Forever Burgundy - Review, Swatch and Lip Clicks

What Avon says about ExtraLasting Lipstick:  
  • Helps prevents dryness for 12 hours!
  • Formulated with Fresh Water complex so color stays true.
  • Medium to full color satin finish
  • Transfer resistant, provides SPF15 protection

My routine starts at 9 30 AM and ends at 10 PM on working days. So 'Long lasting'  is the first thing I check in most of my cosmetics. So, when I read all these claims I obviously had to get it. 

Price: 375 INR for 1.5g. Now in offer at 279 INR

Look & Feel:

T2B-Single to Double Swipe

  • Texture: Feather-light lipstick which glides on lips giving a smooth finish on well moisturised lips else  gives an untidy finish.
  • Package: Sleek and classy packaging. Not so sturdy but manageable.
  • Fragrance: Mild pleasant fragrance observed when smelled from package but on lips it's odourless. 
  • Shade: Forever Burgundy. As 'Long Lasting' in my life means 'For Work' I was looking for a medium shaded lip color.  This shade was shown in the catalogue as 'medium pinkish brown' but in reality it is a 'dark pinkish red'. So disappointed in-spite of the beautiful shade.

From the Catalogue

The Effects
  • Lasting Power: Totally amazed as it stays for 5-6 hours without meals. With meals it leaves a lovely pink stain. 
  • Colour Intensity: Full color is obtained with single swipe :)
  • Moisturising:  It doesn't dry out lips on it's own. But as I have extremely dry lips I have to re-apply lip balm for every 4 hours else it settles in lines :( 
  • Transfer Resistant? NO for cups and YES on skin.
  • Bleeding? It bleeds meaning you have to either use a lip liner or be extremely careful while applying at the boundaries of your lips. 
Buy This:
  • For opaque color that lasts long.
  • For SPF15.
  • For being pocket-friendly.
  • For the adorable stained lips.
  • For the dark shade which instantly brightens the face.
  • For fair to medium skin tones
Don't Buy:
  • For bleeding.
  • For settling in fine lines.
  • For dark skin tones.

Final Note:    Avon claims more than this product actually delivers nevertheless EverLasting lipstick  is a good lipstick and a steal for the price of 280/-. I would have loved it more if I got the exact shade provided in the catalogue
