Meet The Matte That Stands Out from AVON!Monday, August 01, 2016
In the lipstick world, MAC pretty much has it covered specially when it comes to matte lipsticks. Their matte lipsticks are rather amazing and provide a fantastically matte finish that a lot of other companies simply can’t reproduce -they have been the pioneers in matte lipsticks.
An not only for their lipsticks, their other makeup and skin care products are top notch as well.
I remember being addicted to Avon's Ultra Color Absolute Lipsticks, and those weren't even the matte ones. I don't usually wear creamy lipsticks because it tends to end up on my teeth, but surprisingly, those really moisturized my lips making me addicted to them! And they didn't end up on my teeth as much!
And before Avon's amazing new Perfect Matte lipsticks, they also made what I labeled as the Perfect Red lippie which was very much close to Chanel's Lipstick in Gabrielle but only a fraction of the price.

My swatches above are only a single swipe and I must say I got so "kilig" when I first swiped them because it truly just one swipe to get intense color. It truly is amazing. It glides on like creamy lipstick, but the effect is matte. Its consistency is close to that of liquid velvet mattes, but it gives a true matte finish.
If I exfoliated my lips and moisturized them more, then the darker lip shades wouldn't have given this effect like they made my lips flaky. Excuse my skin too, being 5 months pregnant and hormonal makes my skin act out! It's really so dry right now and it just looks so off.
In regards to the comparison with MAC, I don't see them being necessarily MORE matte than MAC, but they are a lot more easy to apply than MAC's matte lipsticks. I find Avon's more creamier to apply and more moisturizing for this kind of ultra matte effect. Plus, you can never go wrong with the price!
