Be Talk: AVON Ultra Color Rich Lipstick in Butternut

Be Talk: AVON Ultra Color Rich Lipstick 
Brand Name: AVON

Line: Ultra Color Rich

Shade: Butternut

Price: INR 299 but varies with available offers

This post was long due. I bought 3 AVON Ultra Color Rich Lipsticks last year on a superb offer. It was "2 for Rs 319" and given the awesome qualities of this particular range of lipsticks-I found the offer too good to miss! I actually ordered four of these lipstick-out of which three reached me.  I have reviewed Twig (here) and Wineberry (here!). This is the last one-waiting to be talked about!!!


AVON lipsticks –especially the simply pretty and Ultra Color Rich range, packs good quality, beautiful and deeply pigmented colors with very competitive pricing. Also the best attraction about AVON products are the occasional offers that accompany their products-that simply makes them irresistible to us-the makeup maniacs like us. 

Me Talk:

Butternut is a shade that can stand out in your lipstick collection! That's because its a fusion of an earthy red with lots of brick tinge in it. It is kinda chilli red! Perfect for bright or wheatish skin tones-I can picture it rocking with a gold-and-brick Kanjivaram Saree on some evening occasion! I think this shade can jazz up even dull-colored outfits! Off course I would keep the eye makeup minimal if I am wearing this shade or it may look garish.


1) An unusual but nice red shade. It is glossy in finish.
2) Very moisturizing
3) Deep pigmentation-gives an opaque finish in 1-2 swipes. Good for pigmented lips
4) Stays long-about 3-4 hours without meal. Fades evenly
5) Price is reasonable-at offers like this-I got this beautiful lipstick at less than 160 bucks!! (2 for Rs 319 offer)
5) Wide range of colors available

Down Side:

1)The pictures in Avon catalog are misleading-without seeing reviews-its impossible to know the actual shade
2)Available through representatives
