Quite awhile ago, the very sweet Jen of A Beautyful Sentiment sent me some of Avon’s Ultra Color Rich 24K Gold Lipsticks because I had been really interested in trying them, and I am so glad she did because these have become some of my favorite lipsticks.
What’s good about them? Basically, everything. They’re inexpensive for starters ($8.00), packaged nicely, come in a decent variety of colors, have great pigmentation, feel smooth and light on, are paraben-free and most of all, they remind me of those wonderful Maybelline WetShine Diamonds lipsticks that were discontinued awhile ago. I mourned the loss of those lipsticks, and when I found these, it was definitely a comparable match.
While all of the colors are nice, my very favorite is Golden Rose, which is a melon-y shade with gold flecks in it. Staying power is decent with these. I can expect to get maybe three full hours of wear without significant fading.
You can pick yours up at Avon.com. Watch their site because many times they have good sales and you can get these for even more of a deal.
