Avon Ultra Color Matte Lipsticks in Matte Lily & Matte Berry

Matte Lipsticks and our dearest Samannita was kind enough to parcel be the same along with the CC Cream in a oh-so-sturdy packaging. 
I have got the shades Matte Lily & Matte Berry.

Packaging: The Avon Ultra Color Matte Lipsticks come in a black cardboard outer packaging. The lipstick bullet is secure inside a black holder with a black cover, the top of which is transparent so that you can actually see the colour of the lipstick.


My Experience: Avon Ultra Color Matte Lipsticks are quite creamy in texture. I did not find the texture matte at all. They are hydrating for the lips and gives a nice sheen to the pouts. I am not sure why it is called a matte lipstick. the colours transfer a lot, but still your lips will have the stain of the colour for a long time. The colours definitely bleed and you have to be careful while applying. It is best to conceal and line your mouth area. What I love mostly about the lipsticks is the packaging which is sturdy and unlike other contemporary lipsticks the bullet does not emerge half-way from the holder. This is easy to handle. There is a very light fragrance to it and I dont find it annoying. Their limited shade availability is another issue.



 Avon Ultra Color Matte Lipsticks in Matte Lily:
It is a bright pink with cooler undertones that will be suitable for medium-fair to fairer complexion. The colour looks quite pretty however, it is better for warmer complexioned beauties to stay away from it.


Avon Ultra Color Matte Lipstick in Matte Berry:
It is a warm berry tone and will suit all complexion. I prefer this shade more than the Matte Lily.


I will not go into the Pros & Cons of the Avon Ultra Color Matte Lipsticks as I really did not find them that appealing. Rather I would give a 3/5 Rating.



Avon Ultra Color Matte Lipsticks are not the best option for lovers of matte lip shades. The packaging is good and the shades are satisfactory, but we may find better options from other brands. If you are interested to purchase, Avon Ultra Color Matte Lipstick in Matte Lily is the one for lighter complexions and Avon Ultra Color Matte Lipstick in matte Berry is suitable for all, specially Indian skin tones.
