My take on the product

 

Avon has launched 4 new Valentine shades. The lipstick bullet of these shades has the letters ‘LOVE’ embossed on them. Its a little cheesy but kinda cute at the same time, reminded be of Lakme Lip love lipsticks. The shades are pretty, there’s a warm pink, a pure peach, a cherry red and a plum shade – something for everyone!

To read a detailed review of the Avon Color Bliss lipsticks, read my review of shades Truffle and Sangria.

Coral Pink is  creamy and opaque pure peach shade. The shade is bright and pretty but I feel that its best suited for fair skin tones. It looked rather light on me though I do like the shade paired with an intense smokey eye. Its a lovely spring shade and if you’re fair complexioned, you should definitely pick up this shade! Since its a lighter shade,the staying  power is about 3-4 hours, it does tend to settle a bit into lines and is not very moisturizing so a sheer gloss on top of this shade would work very well.

Fresh Rose (I’ve mistyped French Rose in the above image) is a beautiful warm pink that instantly brightens up the complexion. The shade has a freshness to it that makes the face glow! It has enough of warmth to suit warm/dusky skin tones as well. The shade is quite pigmented and it stains the lips – staying power is a good 5-6 hours. After the lipstick is gone, a pink tint still remains on the lips. I loved this shade and if I had to recommend one shade from the Valentine day collection, it would be this one! On the downside, the color tends to settle into the fine lines and after a few hours, one would need a bit of moisturization. But for a lipstick priced at Rs 100, it delivers more than what one expects!

 Overall Verdict

 

Avon Valentine Color Bliss lipsticks are a limited edition collection of  4 lipsticks which have the letters LOVE embossed on the bullet. The formula is creamy and pigmented with a fairly decent staying power though the color does tend to settle into the lines. Coral Pink is a creamy pure peach shade, perfect for fairer skin tones while Fresh Rose is lovely warm pink that instantly brightens up the face. At the price, these are worth trying especially if you’re looking for pretty spring lip colors!

 

Have you tried the Avon Valentine Color Bliss lipsticks ?

    Thanks a ton for the review !! I had ordered Coral Pink and was aghast when I saw the swatch. For my skin tone it would look way too light. Instantly called my Avon rep to change it to Fresh Rose.Thanks!

    coral pink looks good on you in a very retro kind of way. Like the way you have done your eyes.

    You can’t purchase online Niki, you need to buy through a representative.

    Revlon CB Peach is warmer, more peachier. Fresh Rose is warm pink so it will suit warm skin tones as well!

    Thanks for the reviews and swatches on Avon products! Some of the colours in Avon brochures don’t tally in real life so this helps a lot. Am recently addicted to Avon lipsticks, one of which is Simply Pretty Valentine Brights Lipstick in Pure Plum – it’s perfect for winter and end-of-the-year parties. Just did a review on dark vampy lip colours and confessions for my love for Avon lipsticks. Will be stalking you from time to time for reviews.

    Regards,
    Vicki
