Beauty on a Budget: Avon Ultra Color Rich Mega Impact Lipstick Review and Swatches

Morning chickets…or wait it’s afternoon already isn’t it?

How was your weekend? Mine was pretty slow going for once, amen for slow weekends. I got a chance to see Alice in Wonderland on Friday and I’m still debating what I think of it, who seen? Whatcha think? Discuss!

The rest of the weekend went by in a rather quick blur especially yesterday when I proceeded to veg in front of the telly playing Bioshock 2 and Heavy Rain with my mate Martin. It was one of those lose track of time moments as we proceeded to fall into a gaming comatose. Can I tell you how pissy I am about Heavy Rain? Between choppy video and incredibly long load times we were both ready to toss Mountain Dew a the TV and hiss big boos! Seriously, I could have walked around the block and made a roast while waiting for the damn scenes to load. Not cool Sony, so not cool.

Anyway, I also got a chance to check Avon Ultra Color Rich Mega Impact Lipstick. Dontcha just love how Avon tosses in all those major words? Mega! Rich! Ultra! It’s like an action movie. I know I get excited when my lipstick is mega, rich, full of impact, and ultra…yeah baby!
