Avon Lipstick in Matte Ruby Review and Swatch

This was a prize I got from the #MeetTheMatte contest that Avon held. They picked 100 winners to have their new lipstick, and I'm lucky enough to be one of them. Thank you Avon Philippines!

It's a really gorgeous red-pink colored lipstick. Formula is moisturizing and it's not dry-matte that I've experienced with Nars. It's also creamier than Koshize lipsticks, but it's smoother than Wet N Wild Megalast.

This lipstick is very pigmented. It lasts about 5 to 6 hours and you can eat/drink without reapplying it. Note that it does transfer and stains glasses when drinking, so if you want to blot your lips after applying, I think it would help to set the product in. I also never experienced any lipstick bleeding after meals. Packaging doesn't disappoint either. The inner tube is matte and the top of the tube is clear, so you can see what color is inside (unlike MAC lipsticks). The tube has a close-click-feel in it so it's great for your handbag.

Overall, great product. I like that it's moisturizing and it lasts a long time. I definitely think it's perfect for the holidays with all the eating and drinking involved. I definitely would purchase a darker lipstick in this formula (I really have to Google swatches right now!) and oh, by the way, I think this is just my second lipstick from Avon. I may need to up my Avon game since I'm really impressed with this product. Can't stop wearing this lipstick and it's been a week!
