Avon Totally Kissable Lipstick Loving Lilac - Review, Swatches

Avon does not need me to rave about it's new Totally Kissable lipsticks coz they definitely know how good these are but I shall anyway. I'm talking about the shade Loving Lilac and I'm really blown away by how smooth and creamy it is. Avon has always been one of my favorite brands because of their reasonable prices, excellent quality and a wide variety of products and shades. What I like the most are their lipstick formulas and there are so many to choose from. So wish that these were available in stores rather than through representatives but then that's what direct selling is all about. 

Early this year, Avon launched the Vitaluscious lipsticks and now we have the new Totally Kissable lipsticks in 10 shades to choose from. This is what Avon's celebrity makeup artist Neha Khanna has to say about this new range:

"Totally Kissable lipstick renders intense bright color that goes perfect with our skin tone and also gives softer, smoother, kiss ready lips. Lips look color rich with petal soft feel". And these are the active ingredients of the lipstick:

  • Unique blend of avocado and coconut oils help condition for smoothness
  • Fruit enzymes work on the surface of lips leaving them visibly smooth
  • Contains SPF 15

So you get the basic picture right? These lipsticks are really good! Much better than the formula and texture of lipsticks from many popular and high end brands. The shade I have is Loving Lilac, a pretty mix of lilac and fuchsia with a hint of shimmer. The lipstick has a creamy, almost balm like texture with a glossy finish and this color should look good on pretty much all skin tones.

This is the only Totally Kissable lipstick I have so not sure if the others are the same but Loving Lilac does go on slightly sheer on the first application so it's not like a burst of color at the first go. But it is easily built up for more opaque coverage. I also like that the shimmer is not too prominent. Since this is a moisturising lipstick, the wear time is not as much as say a matte or a semi-matte but I get a decent three to four hours without fading or bleeding. What I love most is that the my lips stay moisturized till the color goes away. So all you pretties with dry lips, you can close your eyes and buy one of these!

I highly recommend the Avon Totally Kissable lipstick range for its wonderful smooth and creamy formula at a very reasonable price. It's treatment plus color for the lips all in one :). Plus they look very good too!

The Totally Kissable lipstick is priced at Rs 429 but available for Rs 299 currently.
