Avon Ultra Color Rich Extra Plump Lipstick Review and Swatches

The Muse has an obssession with anything that promises her fuller, larger, poutier lips. Is poutier even a word? Most of the time she feeds her addiction by purchasing plumping glosses of all kinds to see which will give her the fatter lip look. Granted she doesn’t want to look like she had scary lip injections ala Melanie Griffith (scary!) but she does desire a sexier, fuller pout.

Up until now it’s always been about the latest, greatest lip gloss but Avon took it to the next level with it’s brand new Ultra Color Rich Extra Plump Lipstick.

Whoa a lipstick that plumps not a gloss? Cool beans!

Jump for it!

Avon Ultra Color Rich Extra Plump Lipstick is available in 10 shades and is $5.99 a tube, likey cheap plumping agents! According to Avon you’ll have to see it to believe it yourself but no worries the Muse is here to explain it all so you don’t have to run around trying to locate a tube so you can start seeing and believing.

The lipstick is your standard pigmented, moisturizing lipstick from Avon, hey Avon does excel at making generally good lipsticks, the Muse Approves. The only difference is that the core of the lipstick is packed with a plumping agent that hydrates, moisturizes, and you guessed it, plumps. This pretty much mimics similar products you’ve seen which have a conditioning core (remember MAC Color Forums Lipstick?) but the core this time around has a minty plumping medium that supposedly plumps and fattens up lips.

Ok so it glides on wonderfully well and feels incredible on my lips and yes like any good plumping gloss it has a tiny bit of a stinging bite plus plenty of pigmented color to keep your pucker looking beautiful. But…not sure on the plumping part….it does make lips fuller but I didn’t really experience any amazing effects in regards to plumping. If I’m honest I get better results with my trusty tube of DuWop Lip Venom than I did with this lipstick.

Disappointed?

A little bit.

But if I take plumping out of the equation I can’t deny that Avon Ultra Color Rich Extra Plump Lipstick is cheap, pigmented, moisturizing, and quite a nice lipstick for it’s price.

Doesn’t really plump but def serves it’s own in the realms of good lipsticks for a great price.

Likey!

Avon please work on the plumping agent and you’ll have yourself a champion although this one is still in the winning category for sure it just needs that little extra something to push it over the edge.
