AVON SPECTRACOLOR LIPSTICKS


If you are like me, you don't want to carry around several tubes of lipsticks or a big lip palette around in your purse for day to night or weekends away. AVON has come up with a fun way to bring 7 lip colors in one tube! They come in 10 color families. I have 3 of them; The nudes, The peaches, and The Roses.


These colors are all a bit glossy looking, so if you are looking for matte lipstick, this is not for you. Every single color is so pigmented and goes on so smoothly! They wear pretty nicely, but don't expect it to last ALL day. It does give you a little bit of a stain, I found that out when I tried wiping the swatches off my arms--it was a big hard to get off, I really had to scrub with an exfoliating wipe!

This is very easy to use, you just dial up the color you want. There are numbers on the dial, 1-7. 1 is the lightest and 7 is the darkest. There is also a lock on the dial which is great so when you throw this in your purse, you don't accidentally lose any!

The only thing that people may not like about this lipstick is that the applicator is hard to use on it's own. It can get product on outside your lips if you aren't careful. I always use a lip brush anyway, but for people who don't like to or just don't want to carry one around in their purse, may find this to be a problem. For me, I don't mind.

As you can see, you can have a very light shade all the way to a very dark shade. These are also great to mix and blend your own custom colors. What I find myself doing alot as well is wearing a darker color and highlight the center of my lips with the lightest shade. SpectraColor has such nice texture, you don't even need to wear a gloss on top! They are just very shimmery-with no sparkle-and really fun to play with and wear!


For some reason, right now at least, AVON isn't selling these. But you can find them on Ebay starting around $5.39. I am wondering if AVON is rethinking the packaging to have a more independent applicator, rather than just the slanted tip--which I like! But I suppose only time will tell with this one! If you can get your hands on this one, do!
