Lip Of The Week – Avon Perfectly Matte in Ravishing Rose

Somedays all you need is lipstick, today is one of those days.  It’s been a rough week in addition to being dark and stormy so I decided I needed a bright raspberry-esq lip, enter in Avon Perfectly Matte in Ravishing Rose.

Not only is it a matte formula that is actually comfortable to wear but the staying power on these perfectly matte formulas is pretty legit.  I re-applied once after lunch and I really didn’t need to I just wanted to.  I needed the pick me up 🙂 and sometimes just the act of putting on lipstick can change your frown upside-down!

Lip Prep Tip:  Use a facial brush on your lips in the morning to gently exfoliate and get them smoothed out for your lipstick!  I’ve been using the Avon Anew Cleansing Brush every day and making sure to go over my lips.  Not only does it help remove flakes it also helps remove gentle signs of aging around the lips.

Full Lips Contour Trick:  Line your lips with a shade darker than your lipstick.  Don’t completely fill in your lips but create a thick line.  Then apply your lipstick but don’t go all the way out.  Use a lip brush to the blend where the two meet.

Highlighting Lip Tip:  Use mark. Touch and Glow as your lip highlight.  Apply on your cupids bow and right under the center of you bottom lip with a concealer, cream or foundation brush.  After you’ve applied your lip color use your finger to apply it on the center of your top and bottom lip over the color.

Heal Chapped Lips Trick:  Steep a tea bag for 1-2 minutes then press it in-between your lips for 30 seconds.  Instantly your chapped lips will be no more!

After stalking bloggers, you tubers and fellow customer and rep reviews it seems like the biggest hits from this release are Coral Fever, Ideal Lilac, Hot Plum and Electric Pink!  But honestly, I’ve tried them all and I like all of them.  I’m wearing Ideal Lilac in the pictures above over a Glimmersticks Lip Liner in Pink Cashmere (which is why it looks more pink than lilac).  These shades are really modern so you can’t go wrong so check them out here!  Be sure to follow me on FB and IG for more pics of each of these new shades!
