Today’s beauty blog advent is on Avon’s Ultra Color Rich White Gold Lipsticks. Avon had these on sale for $2.99 each, so I purchased all the colors I thought I’d wear, got free shipping, and paid a nice $16.00 even (including tax!)! I swatched the shades I picked up: Shimmering Nude, Glitzy, Platinum Pink, Golden Berry and Red Karat. I also swatched the original 24k Gold lipsticks: 24K Gold, Golden Rose and Golden Wine.
Row 1 = Shimmering Nude – Platinum Pink – Golden Berry – Red Karat – Glitzy
Row 2 = 24k Gold – Golden Rose – Golden Wine
My descriptions of the colors:
Shimmering Nude – light peachy nude
Platinum Pink – rosey midtone pink with silver shimmer
Golden Berry – gorgeous berry with silver shimmer
Red Karat – red with slight gold shimmer
Glitzy – coral with gold shimmer
24k Gold – metallic gold
Golden Rose – pink with gold shimmer
Golden Wine – deep vampy wine with gold shimmer
I definitely feel like spending the $3 whenever these are on sale is worth it. I like the colors. The one thing I dislike about Avon is their awful swatches. I had no idea what Glitzy or Shimmering Nude would look like. I took a risk picking them up. I may not wear Glitzy, but I’ll definitely wear Shimmering Nude. Platinum Pink looked very nice. I think Golden Berry is the prettiest of the bunch.
For the older shades, I absolutely adore Golden Rose, so much that I asked Morgana Cryptoria to make an indie version, which she did! It’s called Gilded Ballerina. I also like 24K Gold. The ‘gold’ shades seem more apparent than the ‘white gold’ shimmer.
Overall, I like the lipsticks that I’ve purchased from Avon and would recommend picking them up if they’re on sale and you like the colors, just be wary of the swatches.
What do you think of these white gold and 24k gold lipsticks? Have you tried any Avon lipsticks?
