Avon Iconic Lipsticks – Holiday Collection

Avon Canada Iconic Lipstick Swatches - Holiday Collection 2018 Swatches of Sugar Plum, Holly Red & Merry Mauve

Growing up, my grandma loved Avon and we spent holidays there so always got to choose something from the Avon Catalogue.  Shopping with Avon is so much easier now that you can shop direct online and have it shipped to you rather than deal with an Avon rep, but Christmas is still important to them.  So they have brought out a new Iconic collection.  It consists of a set of three palettes for face and eyes plus five lipsticks.  I have three of the Avon Iconic lipsticks to share with you today.

Each of the Avon Iconic lipsticks comes in gold packaging with a different coloured lid.  They also come in adorable boxes too.  Priced at just $12 each, they look expensive and the boxes serve as gift boxes with their holiday themes. I have a classic red, a darker plum and a gorgeous pink to share.  They also have a chocolate brown and a dark wine.

Avon Iconic Lipstick in Holly Red

The holiday season screams for a classic red.  Avon Holly Red is a touch pinker than that pin up red. For me that makes it more wearable as I have never been a huge fan of in your face red.  But it is the perfect match that little black dress for party season.  Holly Red comes with a leopard print lid.

Avon Iconic Lipstick in Sugar Plum

I love the gift box on this one with mistletoe and holly.  Avon Iconic Sugar Plum appears darker in the bullet than on the lip.  It is actually a gorgeous berry plum while it looks like a darker wine in the tube. It comes with a red plaid lid.

Avon Iconic Lipstick in Merry Mauve

Finally, Avon Iconic in Merry Mauve.  This is more pink than mauve to me but not as old lady frosted pink as it looks.  It does have a touch of mauve in it.  Great for everyday wear and comes with a classic Brit plaid lid.

Here are quick swatches of all three shades.  I can’t wait to try the chocolate one too.  All have good formula and are opaque in one coat.  Sugar Plum needed two to build to a colour I like but is opaque in one. Merry Mauve has a touch of frosting so too much makes it shimmery.  All have decent wear time but do transfer to some extent.

  1. The shades are all gorgeous, especially that pink red. But you know, I have half a mind to pick up the frosty pink. For some reason with the packaging and just looking at the bullet it makes me think about being a girl looking longingly at grown up ladies with their lipstick and being impatient to grow up. Boy that shade had a good run.

  2. Never been to your blog, but THANK you for the swatch of the Sugar Plum…been looking all over for that. You’ve been a HUGE help! :0)
