You know the feeling when you wear your fave lipstick? The one that you put on and think you can do anything today. For some people, even a drug store lipstick is out of their price range and while looking for work in this market, you need all the help you can get. So Avon has teamed up with Dress For Success.
I think almost everyone will have heard of Dress For Success. Their mission is to empower women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and development tools to succeed in a work place. For every two Avon True Color Lipsticks purchased from Avon’s Campaign 14 and 15 Brochures (now through July 18), Avon will donate a full size lipstick to Dress for Success. To entice you a little more, Avon is offering two True Color lip colours for just $9.99. So for $10, you get two lipsticks and help Dress For Success!
Avon True Color Lipstick in Pink Dream
Pink Dream is the sheerest of the three True Color Lipsticks I tried and probably the one most suited for an interview. It needs a few swipes to build opacity and has a slight shimmer. A nice neutral pink, it is perfect for that almost no makeup look but with a touch of sparkle.
Avon True Color Lipstick in Poppy Love
Poppy Love from Avon’s True Color lipstick collection is a bright tomato red. I usually don’t go for bright reds personally. They are a bit much for my skin tone. Poppy Dream has a touch of orange in it that in the tube, looks really bright but looks wonderful on. The formula is great too. It does need a liner but once blotted, toned down a little and lasted a few hours. Great for a cream lipstick for me.
Avon True Color Bold Lipstick in Fearless Fuchsia
While Poppy Love looked the brightest in the bullet, Avon Fearless Fuchsia is part of the True Color Bold Lipstick collection and had better colour payoff per swipe. This bright fuchsia leans more pink in most lighting but definitely has a touch of purple. It also lasts longer than the other two but feathers so needs a liner (in fairness, I always use a liner with creams).
Swatches of Avon True Color Lipsticks in Fearless Fuchsia, Poppy Love and Pink Dream
Shown with two swipes of each. Plus a third swipe of Pink Dream on the left half of the swatch so show opacity. These colours are not especially unique to Avon but even the brighter colours are wearable and have great formulas for $5 each during the Avon Share the Power of Lipstick campaign with Dress For Success. Which is your fave?
Avon True Color Lipsticks can be purchased through your local independent Avon representative (or shop online). Don’t forget to shop by July 18th to take advantage of the two for $9.99 deal and get a lipstick donated to Dress For Success.
