Avon Extra Lasting Lipstick: Totally Twig

Monday, July 30, 2012
I have three Avon Extra lasting Lipsticks and this shade 'totally twig' is the first one I bought and I was hooked from there! Firstly, the packaging of these lipsticks is really nice, sleek and lightweight - great for travelling. There are also many shades from nudes and pink to brights and dark shades. I have three fairly neutral shades including: totally twig (rosy brown), rose creme (bright rose pink) and Cappuccino (beige, peach nude).
The application of this lipstick is fantastic, it has a really smooth silky texture which makes it glide onto my lips with amazing ease. This product is also really quite pigmented, I only need one swipe on my lips for amazing pigmentation and colour pay off.
Now, the shade, I would describe this shade as a gorgeous rosy brown. I love rosy brown lipsticks, they are the shades that I gravitate towards so I have quite a lot of the same in my (fairly large, but not large enough) lipstick collection. The shade is great for everyday and while I am wearing it I am not worrying if it is on my teeth or if it has worn off horribly as this product lasts for quite a while on me. I can wear this lipstick comfortably all day but after about six hours the lipsticks is just a tint on my lips. This lipstick wears off my lips really nicely, it does not leave my lips looking patchy and it is slightly glossy. The only minor negative for this product is that it can highlight lines/flakiness slightly and the full price of this lipstick is a little bit high (£7) but it is always on offer (and available on eBay).

Overall, the packaging is great, the application is fantastic and easy, the shade is gorgeous and the longevity/wear is great - just as good as my MAC lipsticks! A fantastic product from Avon!
