Avon Ultra Color 3D Plumping Lipsticks

11/07/2015



Whenever I hear that a friend, colleague or a reader states she hasn't purchased anything from Avon for a long time and wants to but has no idea where to start - I always, without a fail, recommend their lipsticks. Regardless of the range, the vast majority comes up as terrific - especially the ones in classic bullets as opposed to lip stylos, crayons etc.

There is something comforting in a freshly purchased lipstick and I, for one, cannot deny myself that small pleasure. As soon as cooler months roll by I automatically reach for darker shades although a good nude lip can never be boring either. Today I have five delicious shades of the Avon Ultra Color 3D Plumping Lipsticks which seem to be beautiful as ripe apples. Ready for some apple-picking?

Following the bold metallic trend, these lippies come in a silvery cool metallic packaging - very easy on the eyes. They are quite light but sturdy and another pro in their favor is that their surface isn't glossy and definitely not a fingerprint magnet. There are lots of shades to choose from (I think 15 in total) and I have five to show which have gone through my magnifying glass.

  • Kada god mi se prijateljice, kolegice ili citateljice jave sa mislju da nisu odavno isprobale nesto novo iz Avona, a imaju zelju - uvijek ih uputim na ruzeve za usne ovog brenda. Bez obzira na liniju kojoj pripadaju, Avon ruzevi su redovito krasni - pogotovo oni u klasicnom pakovanju (u odnosu na lip stylo, olovcice, debeljuce i sl.)
  • Postoji nesto jako privlacno u otvaranju i kroistenju novog ruza i to je malo zadovoljstvo koje mi je zaista tesko sebi uskratiti. Po dolasku hladnijih mjeseci volim u rutinu ubaciti neke tamnije nijanse iako necu odbiti ni dobar ruz boje koze. Danas na meniju imam pet slasnih nijansi za usne iz Avon Ultra Color 3D Plumping linije ruzeva (7,90KM) koji me podsjecaju na zrele jabuke. 
  • Prateci trend metala koji su pronasli put u kolorit kozmetike, pakovanje ovih ruzeva je srebrno sive boje - vizuelno su jako prijatni. Pakovanje je lagano no cvrsto a jos nesto sto im ide u prilog jeste sto pakovanje nije sjajno i samim time ne privlaci otiske prstiju. U ponudi imamo lijep izbor nijansi (mislim da ih je ukupno 15) a pod mojom lupom se pronaslo njih pet.







The one I love the most is a shade I usually do prefer and wear. Twig is a gorgeous medium brown, not too warm - just perfect. Looks so natural and is amazingly pigmented - in fact, all Ultra Color 3D Plumping lipsticks have a fab pigmentation. They all apply beautifully but some are less even and forgiving of dryness and fine lines than others. Twig is perfectly moisturizing, deliciously creamy, hugs lips and forgives any dryness and is something I cannot stop wearing, really.

Truffle is the vampy brown shade and the most unique out of the bunch. It's quite hard to find a flattering dark brown shade that is wearable and modern but this definitely is it. I have noticed that it applies less evenly than rest of shades I own which is a con - luckily, this isn't too obvious and I wouldn't disregand it due to it. Slap of the good old lip balm and eventually a light lip scrub prior to application and you're good to go. I think it is worth the effort because it wears well and looks attractive.

Uptown Pink  is my second fave (after Twig) and you can tell why - it's the ideal medium pink with brown mixed in making it stunning, versatile and wearable all at the same time. Great pigmentation, even application as seen with Twig. Not shiny but not matte either, all of these lippies have an understated sheen which, I believe, comes from the moisturizing formula. Doesn't cling to dry patches and doesn' 'bleed' into fine lines.

Shade I personally don't wear since I am not a fan of baby pinks is Pucker Up. What I cannot fault is its formula which is equally creamy, pigmented and comfortable as the previous are - I simply don't favor these bright cool toned pinks on myself. I also find that they tend to look more flattering on lighter skin tones than mine.

Power Trip is that classic, wonderful red that everyone should have in their lipstick collection. This blue toned red looks flattering an all skin tones, makes your pearly whites even brighter and simply injects life and color into the complexion. It's very important that red lippies which aren't matte, compensate by having terrific pigmentation and texture - this one certainly redeeemes itself in my eyes.

Do you have a favorite shade from this range?

  • Od svih nijansi koje vam danas predstavljam, najvise mi se dopada ona kojoj bih inace bila privucena tj. nijansa koju uopsteno najcesce volim da nosim. Twig je prekrasna srednje tamno smedja nijansa, ne pretjerano izrazenog toplog podtona - naprosto je savrsena. Izgleda prirodno i odlicne je pigmentacije - ustvari, sve Ultra Color 3D Plumping ruzeve odlikuje pohvalna pigmentacija. Takodjer se lijepo nanose no neki su ravnomjerniji od drugih a u tu bolju skupinu spada Twig. Hidratantan i kremast, naprosto obgrli usne i oprasta suhocu zbog cega je dio moje svakodnevne postave u neseseru.
  • Truffle je vamp smedja nijansa koja je ujedno i unikat iz ove kolekcije. Prilicno je tesko pronaci tamno smedji ruz koji ce izgledati moderno i biti nosiv a Truffle je upravo takav. On se ne nanosi savrseno ravnomjerno kao ostale nijanse - srecom ovo nije previse izrazeno i ne bih preskocila ovu nijansu zbog toga. Malo balzama za usne ili blagi piling prije nanosenja ce rijesiti stvar. Mislim da je vrijedan tog prethodnog truda posto izgleda atraktivno.
  • Uptown Pink  je moj drugi po redu favorit (nakon Twig nijanse) a mislim da je jasno i zbog cega - idealna je srednje tamna ruzicasta sa primjesama smedje sto cini ovaj ruz lijepim, nosivim i uklopiti ce se u vecinu look-ova, sto cijenim. Odlicne je pigmentacije, nanosi se ravnomjerno kao i Twig. Nije sjajnog finisha ali nije ni mat - svi ovi ruzevi imaju umjereno sjajni finish za koji vjerujem da je tu radi hidratantne formulacije. Ne istice suhu kozu i ne prelazi u sitne borice oko usana.
  • Nijansa koju licno ne nosim posto nisam ljubiteljica baby pink nijansi je Pucker Up. Ono sto joj pak ne mogu zamjeriti je odlicna formulacija koja je jednako kremasta, pigmentirana i ugodna za nositi kao prethodne. Stvar je u tome sto ne nosim ruzicastu hladnog podtona no vjerujem da bi ljepse pristajala svjetlijem tenu od mog. 
  • Power Trip je klasicni crveni ruz za koji bi trebalo da postoji mjesto u svakom neseseru i kozmetickoj kolekciji. Ova crvena plavog podtona pristaje svakom tenu, zube i osmijeh cini svjetlijim i jednostavno cini da ten djeluje svjezije. Veoma mi je vazno da crveni ruzevi koji nisu mat finisha kompenziraju kvalitetnom teksturom i pigmentacijom - Power Trip je u mojim ocima u tome uspio.

  1. Mislim da uptown pink ne bih skidala s usana :D Ja preferiram mat ruzeve ali ovakve vremenske prilike jednostavno traze malo hidratacije a ovakav tip ruzeva je idealan za to :D

    1. Mat formulacije su trajnije i ne moramo puno misliti jesu li na usnama ili ne ali zima, isusen zrak u zatvorenim prostorima, vjetar - sve to cini usne dosta osjetljivim. Moje su inace isusene tako da mi kremasti ruzevi bas prijaju. Uptown Pink je ♥

  4. Za sad sam si uzela Uptown pink i Power trip i jako sam zadovoljna s njima. Ova linija ima sve što od jednog kremastog ruža tražim - pigmentiranost, hidrataciju i da je iole postojan čitaj da ne nestane u roku od pola sata :)
