Avon Totally Kissable Lipstick


I can think of few things as fun as a surprise delivery. Actually, there is, a surprise delivery of lipsticks, especially when they happen to be Avon lipsticks! I've said it before and I'll keep on saying it: Avon make some pretty stellar lipsticks. It's true. Their formula is consistently great, and they have a massive range of shades throughout their various lines.

The Totally Kissable shades I've tested definitely don't disappoint! Keep reading to check them out!

'Kiss other lipsticks goodbye, and say hello to petal soft lips. Full coverage conditioning color infused with fruit enzymes and a blend of natural oils for lips that look fuller, softer and smoother. 96 % of women agreed that their lips instantly felt softer and smoother.' -Avon

Totally Kissable lipsticks make their appearance just in time for Valentine's Day. They certainly have an appropriate name and shade names- hello, Make Out Red! Seriously, it's a great shade, but more on that soon. The formula of these lipsticks does range a tad from shade to shade, but overall, they're pretty fabulous. They're incredibly smooth, apply easily, and are hydrating on my lips. They have a slightly sweet, fruity scent, but it wears away quickly once on. They're housed in silver, mirror shine tubes with faceted tops on the caps. Simple, yet stylish.

As I mentioned, the formula does seem to be hydrating, which is a major plus. I've been wearing these without a balm under them, and my lips have yet to feel dry throughout the day. These do have some shine, some shades more than others, and a bit of slip when on, so wear time can vary, but with a formula that wears this comfortably, I honestly don't mind having to touch-up a little more frequently.

Lovey Dovey Pink is a pale, neutral toned pink with light, iridescent shimmer. This shade is a bit more sheer than the others, but I like that it is, as it makes the light shade super easy to wear. This shade also has a nice amount of shine when worn. This is a classic pink shade that should work on any skin tone, and, it's so pretty!

Caressing Coral is a vivid, orange based coral. In the tube, it looks quite orange, but once on, is a gorgeous coral. I like that this shade has some brightness to it, but isn't harsh, and still has a softness to it. This shade has no shimmer, but does have a healthy dose of shine.

Make Out Red is a fuchsia based red. It's the perfect balance of bold yet pretty. The shade seems to change a bit depending on the lighting- it can lean more red or more pink, but gorgeous either way. I'm not usually the biggest wearer of reds, but I think this is my favourite shade out of the bunch. It's pretty fantastic!

Coy Copper is an interesting shade. In the bullet it looks like an almost foiled copper shade, but on the lips it takes on more of a brick red, with hints of plum and a bit of shimmer. It's much more wearable than I had assumed, and actually quite nice. Mind changed

Overall, you can't really go wrong with these lipsticks. With ten shades available (Red Embrace, Make Out Red, Plum Intrigue, Coy Copper, Natural Glow, Caressing Coral, Lovey Dovey Pink, Smitten Red, and Deep Orchid) there is something for everyone. Did you see any shades you like?
