Avon Simply pretty 3 in 1 Color Stick ~ Review & Swatch

VOV GiveAway Entry  Post – XIV

By Jasmine Bhatia

Though I am not much of a makeup person, I ordered this lovely stick in my recent Avon haul because I liked the idea of using one product in 3 different ways.

About the product

Well it’s from Avon’s simply pretty range and it claims that it can be used as a lipstick, blush and as an eye shadow.

Glides on smoothly & blends easily leaving a smooth, silky finish.

  • Contains Vitamin A and E
  • Dermatologist tested


Ingredients

I did a silly thing, I was so excited to see the shade that I tore open the plastic cover on which the details were mentioned  Scratch_Ones_Head

Directions

Simply use it as a lipstick, or put some dots on your cheeks and blend well for a blushed look, use it as an eye shadow.

Price & Quantity

2gms for Rs 179. (I got it for Rs 149 in offer)

 

My take on the Stick

Shade: Maple Syrup

Fragrance: It has negligible clay like fragrance which is non bothering.

Texture

Well the texture of this one is a bit tough to describe: it’s matte but more drying than the usual matte lipsticks.

On the Lips

It’s rather powdery on lips and a bit tough to glide as well. If you want full coverage for the lips then I think almost 3 swipes are needed.

For best results, apply a lip balm on your lips and then use this stick.

On the Cheeks

I used it by putting around 4 or 5 dots on my cheeks and then blended it well. The key is to moisturize your face at least 5 minutes before using it. It gives a nice natural tint on cheeks making the face look radiant.

On Eyes

Well to be true I just used it twice, because I am not very good with eye makeup. The first time I didn’t blend it well so the results were not as good. Second time I blended and kept blending it with my finger till it looked natural. It looks nice and can be worn daily for a minimal or no makeup look.

Pros

  • It’s a 3 in 1 stick.
  • Comes in handy.
  • Affordable.
  • Easily available.

Cons

  • It’s a bit dry.
  • It doesn’t last long.
  • Makes the lips extremely dry.
  • Doesn’t Glide smoothly as claimed!!

Would I repurchase it?

I don’t think so.

Rating: 3 out of 5

I only liked it because I could use it as a blush, but then I have to touch up after every few hours. So I would rather buy a blush in this shade now Wink_Mini !!
