Does it live up to its claims?
Yes. I really like this lipstick from Avon. I believe I bought my first color from them last year in Golden Wine, and then this year picked up 24k Gold and Golden Rose. I like the texture of the lipsticks and the color payoff, though they’re no Morgana Cryptoria. I like that you can really change the color of these lipsticks easily with whatever lipliner you use.

Would I purchase again?
Yes! I believe I’ve purchased these all on sale, so I’ve paid between $3 and $6 for them but never full price. For the price, they’re really worth it. I love the 3 colors I have. I find them flattering on me. They last fairly well. They do have pretty shine. I really like them.

      I have three of these, golden wine, ruby in gold and amethyst gold. I agree with everything you’ve said about them, they’re awesome and I love the scent (mine all smell like watermelon!)

      Amethyst gold is one of my favourite every day colours.

      • Phyrra

        I don’t know that I can recognize any smell with mine, but I think I’m always so used to smelling vanilla or caramel scents.

    • Erline

      Awesome, I was just in the process of placing my order for these : )
      Golden Rose and Golden Wine look especially gorgeous on you!
      Hope you’re good xXx

      • Phyrra

        Thank you! I’m doing ok. How about you?

    • Egyptian Iris

      Those really are beautiful! I am especially drawn to the golden rose one.
      However, I have to admit to being uneasy about seeing a lot of one use products (makeup, cleansers, etc) that include gold, diamond or other rarities being produced in the last year or so. As we’ve seen in mineral makeup there are gorgeous minerals to choose from with all sorts of finishes. Why are companies using really expensive materials that are leading to wars in some sections of the world?
      I know part of it it to stand out from the crowd and to appeal to the sense of getting something for much less than it’s worth. But I didn’t think these materials were so plentiful that we can just use them for a day and then get rid of them. In fact, I thought most mining was declining at the same time that more uses are being found for such materials…

        I think the gold thing is a gimmick and it has been for a while. This particular lipstick line has been around for over a year. I’m not sure why they chose gold, but I feel the same way about diamonds, which is why I don’t buy them.

      Golden Wine looks lovely. I never buy Avon makeup just because some eyeshadows I bought years ago put me off. Zero pigmentation. Might eventually try something else though…

      • Phyrra

        I think they’re probably still hit or miss with eye shadows, but I like these lippies.

      Yes! I just bought Rose Gold when it was on sale. I didn’t even know there was real gold in them until I read it here. I just thought the color was pretty.

      • Phyrra

        Me too, I think it’s very pretty.

      That 24K gold shade is gorgeous on you! Would you mind doing a peachy look- with peachy blush and lips and a coral eye? I’ve been dying to see one and I think you’d do a great job.

      • Phyrra

        I can try doing that! It sounds very spring :)

    • http://www.eaumg.net Victoria/EauMG

      I haven’t tried these but I they have caught my eye.
      They are all beautiful, but I think that my collection really needs that 24K Gold one ;)

      • Phyrra

        I really do like them, as you’ve probably noticed me wearing them a ton :)

    • eRiN

      The swatch of Golden Rose really looks like how a NARS ORgasm lipstick *should* look (I don’t think their lipgloss version really lives up to it)!

      If I can find these near me I might just try them … the idea of wearing 24k gold on my lips is oddly exhilarating ^.^

      • Phyrra

        While I think the 24k gold thing is gimmicky, I really do like the color and shimmer :)

    • http://www.baroque-in-babylon.blogspot.com Baroque In Babylon

      Thanks for being game to do the peach look. Because this looked so beautiful on you, I picked up the 24K gold shade. Thank you!

      • Phyrra

        It’s up :) I hope you like it!

    • http://silhouettescreams.blogspot.com SilhouetteScreams

      I want all 3 of these shades, they’re beautiful. I’ll have to huntdown an Avon lady here to see if they’re sold in Aus yet :)

      • Phyrra

        I hope they are! I have asuspicion they are because they’ve been out here in the USA for over a year and I do believe that they’re available in the UK.

      Golden Wine looks hot.
      I didn’t try them out, but I might take a second look at them.

      • Phyrra

        It is a really great fall/winter color.
