Avon Ultra Colour Rich Lipstick
Advantages: great choice and range of colours, textures and finishes
Disadvantages: Some colours and shades are very powerful and may not suit you
Being an avon sales representative myself I have to keep up with what's new and what can be recommended for customers to try out. Personally I believe you can't go wrong really with any of the avon lipsticks as such. However the glosses and other lip products I can't guarantee the quality of.
Getting back the Ultra Colour rich brand there comes a number of categories, none of which either myself or any of my customers have ever had a problem with.
Firstly there comes the Ultra Colour Rich Cool Bliss Lipstick that contains mint crystals and an SPF15. This lipstick comes in six icy shades which moisturise the lips and give a shiny finish. The standard price is usually £8 but can regularly be found with a maximum discount of 50% which great value is considering how long each individual lipstick can last.
Secondly there is the Ultra Colour Rich Mega Impact Lipstick which was advertised by Reese Witherspoon and is slightly irregular as the makeup itself is square in shape which makes it a little strange to apply. I think this is the most vibrant of the Ultra colour series and claims to have a "Chromapixel Technology" that amplifies its colour; however the eight shades available are a bit overpowering for most people unless you are a regular user of powerful colours and styles of clothing. It does contain an SPF15 also and is £8 at its standard price although was only £3 at its introductory price and is sure to fall in price again in the near future so I would wait until then in case the colour doesn't suit you or your outfits.
Thirdly there is the Ultra Colour Rich Extra Plump lipstick that comes in four more neutral shades in comparison to the mega impact range. It again contains the SPF15 and makes your lips tingle pleasantly when you apply it, it is however a little more limited in its choice of shades though and I would rather go for the Cool Bliss Range as that range suits my complexion a little better, it is a little less expensive than the first two mentioned at the price of £7 but can also be found with a discount every other campaign or so.
Next up is the Ultra Colour Rich 24K Gold Lipstick which is easily my customers favourite because of its moisturising qualities and glittery finish, it is infused with real 24K gold and has quite easily the best range of shades from golden wine to chocolate gold, its full price is £8 which I would gladly pay though again every few campaigns you can find it with a discount of up to 50%, which is when my neighbours and myself stock up.
Finally there are the satin, shimmer and metallic range which I would classify kind of as the same they seem to be to give the same sort of finish to your lips and are generally £6.50.They are definitely the most neutral and basic of the lipsticks but combined have a total of nineteen shades that can't be argued with especially with the price with similar texture to the cool bliss range excluding the mineral extracts and SPF15.
All of the Ultra colour rich lipsticks are found in the main makeup section of the brochure and although this section changes location in the brochure the different shades and ranges can be easily identified as each has a unique little twist or difference. Each lipstick in the avon range comes either sealed or in its own individual box so you can be sure nobody has used the product before you also which is good.
Personally my favourite would be the 24K Gold range around Christmas and the cool bliss in the summer as the shades available correspond well with these seasons in my opinion.
Summary: A great product overall
