    Avon Ultra Color Lipstick in 1406 Cherry Rush

    I really enjoy trying out new lipsticks but it's something else when I come across a shade that turns out to be my 'absolute favourite' for a long while.


    I don't remember when I bought this lipstick but I was wearing it in my post Do the Palazzo, dated 25 February this year, so it must have been early this year. It wasn't love at first use but I found myself reaching for this lipstick more and more; in fact, I've decided to call it my MLBB even though my natural lip colour is nothing like it!

    Not to say that Avon's Cherry Rush is a 100% perfection, though.

    I'm not the best at describing colours but I'm going to attempt it here anyway and say Cherry Rush is a strong red with a splash of deep purple hue in it. Like a berry red, if that makes sense. 

    One important note: if you love matte lipsticks, the sheeny Cherry Rush isn't for you.

    Let's discuss the good and the bad here:

    The Good
    • Amazing and flattering colour
    • Very pigmented
    • Moisturising
    • For a nice lipstick, it's cheap!
    The Bad
    • Isn't completely opaque; the darker rim on my lips isn't completely covered (but the coverage is still good enough)
    • Bleeds out; probably due to its somewhat wet consistency so a good lip pencil is necessary. Its perfect match has to be Avon Ultra Luxury Lip Liner in Wild Berry

    After application:
    The colour of Cherry Rush appear different in various lightings so here are a few pics of me wearing it (#carselfies  included). The photo that most accurately shows the colour that I see when I look in the mirror in natural lighting is probably the top left one.


    I'm not a fan of the strong lipstick + glasses combo (it never has looked good on mewhy is that?) but I must say, Cherry Rush is a game-changer for me as I'm kind of loving the way I look in the photo above.

    Swatch:
    Lipstick on the left; Avon Ultra Luxury Lip Liner in Wild Berry on the right

    I purchased two colours from this range: Cherry Rush and Berry Berry Nice (the shade that's in one of Irina Shayk's Avon ads). I thought I was going to like Berry Berry Nice a lot more than Cherry Rush but I was wrong.

    Left: Cherry Rush; right: Berry Berry nice
    Question: Does anyone else think the names should be the other way around? Cherries are always red whereas purple hues would come to mind when people mention 'berry', right?

    I would recommend you trying out this Avon range on the basis that Avon is super affordable. Plus, for the prices they offer, their products are surprisingly good stuff!


    Are you a fan of Avon make up products as I am, or do you still imagine Avon as the 'mothers and aunties only' club? 
    If it's the latter, I don't blame you because that was my idea of Avon too—that is, until the Pixiwoo sisters introduced me to Avon, so thanks a merry bunch to Sam and Nic!

    Would you wear this shade yourself?
