Some things in life are so unpredictable and we are sometimes shocked to see some crazily priced stuff prove to be total disappointments. Agree Right?
While I was in high school I was bitten by the makeup bug and seriously started hoarding makeup. While one loves spending fortunes over makeup in my high school days I was forced to spend only what I got as pocket money. So I was always on the lookout for affordable products and that’s when this amazing lipstick range came into my notice.
These are usually available at offer around Rs.100 to Rs.120 for 4 ml
My Take on Avon Simply Pretty Mango Mania Lipstick:
While we all savor mangoes in our summer (Especially we Bengalis) I was quite unsure whether I would love to have a mango on my lips. Jokes apart, Avon’s catalogues are really misleading and shades are usually way different than the actual color. I was skeptical but my friend (who was the representative) suggested that many people have taken the shade from her and loved it. With the chance of spending a good amount of my pocket money on a product I was least sure of – I placed an order.
The packaging is simple and somewhat low quality. But I was not concerned as long as the lipstick was good. These come in a twist up packaging like usual. The lipstick shade is quite amazing actually and it goes perfectly with my warm yellow toned fair to medium skin tones. The color is a muted orange, it’s not overwhelming at all and looks quite nice when worn. This can be an everyday color too.
The formula of Avon’s Simply Pretty range is quite good. They provide good color payoff, and do not dry the lips out. The lipstick goes opaque in two swipes and covers the good amount of pigmentation I have. The lipstick does transfer and crease when worn over a long period. But I have seen it perform better with a nude lip pencil beneath. The staying power is average like 2-3 hours with snacks. The color does not stain lips and does not fade in patches. The finish of this lipstick is a glossy finish but not too glossy.

Will I suggest this to you?:
Yes I will. The color is a superb shade which is quite wearable and looks great on any skin. The price is quite affordable and it’s ideal for those who want some pocket friendly products.
Will I repurchase?:
I am still to finish this one and the sad part is that it has broken from the base, so I have to depot it into a container soon. But if I finish this soon I’m definitely repurchasing.
