As promised, here’s the first batch of looks I tried out using the 10 shades of Avon Ultra Color Absolute Lipsticks. I made these looks based on my everyday life, whether I’m going to meetings, sites, errands, or events. The photos I chose were the ones that looked the closest to the colors I see in person as I sometimes have a hard time describing these gorgeous shades.
PINK RENEWAL | BASE: Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Protect SPF 30, Tinted Moisturizer Compact in Natural/ BROWS: Avon Brow Definer in Soft Brown/ LIPS: Avon Ultra Color Absolute in Pink Renewal
About the Look. I was going to visit a site and I needed a simple and fresh look for the day so I just did a fast base and my brows plus the UCA in Pink Renewal. I’m still on the fence though if the light pink shade works well with my skintone as it seems a tad too pale. I think this would look better on mestizas or maybe I’d try this again with a smokey eye.
LOVELY FUCHSIA | BASE: Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Protect SPF 30, Tinted Moisturizer Compact in Natural, Translucent Loose Setting Powder/ EYES: Avon Always On Point Eyeliner in Molten Plum/ LIPS: Avon Ultra Color Absolute Lipstick in Lovely Fuchsia
About the Look. I had to look presentable really fast and actually did my makeup in the car. I tagged along to Fort on a last minute whim and I only managed to grab the UCA in Lovely Fuchsia and the Molten Plum eyeliner which thankfully worked well for me as their shades complement each other. I think I pulled off looking put together enough for an entire day of going around. An eyebrow pencil and blush would have worked wonders for this look though.
WARM BERRY | BASE: Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Protect SPF 30, Translucent Loose Setting Powder/ MAC Studio Fix Liquid Foundation NC40, Studio Fix Concealer NW25/ BROWS: Avon Brow Definer in Soft Brown/ EYES: Chanel Illusion D’Ombre in Epatant, Estee Lauder Artist’s Eye Pencil in Softsmudge Black, Avon Super Shock Max and Super Drama Mascara/ CHEEKS: Estee Lauder Bronzer in Warm/ LIPS: Avon Ultra Glimmerstick Lip Liner in Red Brick, Ultra Color Absolute Lipstick in Warm Berry
About the Look. This FOTD took me a while and I even contemplated a redo as I wasn’t really sure if I was right in choosing Epatant for my eye color. That particular shade of Ilusion D’Ombre veered green and I didn’t want to come across as holiday-ish. I wore this to an Asus launch event at 71 Gramercy minus the lip though as I wanted to eat. Teehee.
PURE ORCHID | BASE: Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Protect SPF 30, Tinted Moisturizer Compact in Natural/ BROWS: Avon Brow Definer in Soft Brown/ EYES: Mally Evercolor Ultimate Waterproof Eyeliner in Navy/ CHEEKS: MAC Blush in Pinkerpeach and Trustfund/ LIPS: Avon Glimmersticks Lip Liner in Pink Bouquet, Ultra Color Absolute Lipstick in Pure Orchid
About the Look. Wore this out to BDJ Box Tres Chic Beauty Social. I really just wanted to focus on my lips but added the Navy eyeliner when I felt that my eyes looked tired that day as I was horribly sick the day before. I don’t know if I’m 100% pleased with this look but maybe it’s the after effect of being sick that made me look a bit unwell still.
SMOOTH PLUM | BASE: The Body Shop Vitamin C Moisturizer with SPF/ EYES: Avon Always On Point Eyeliner in Molten Gunmetal/ CHEEKS: Nars One Night Stand Palette (Mistinguette)/ LIPS: Avon Ultra Color Absolute Lipstick in Smooth Plum
About the Look. I honestly can’t remember where I wore this look so I’m guessing that since I cant remember, I probably must have not gone anywhere really so errands maybe? This was the last of the 10 that I used and I was hesitant at first because the shade looked a frightening shade of violet in the tube but turned to this lovely color once applied.
Here are close-up shots of the 5 shades featured in this post:
