Avon Color Rich 24K Gold Lipstick Review, Swatches, and FOTD

Remember the Avon Color Rich 24K Gold Lipstick I was telling you about? Turns out it's something rather special! I do so highly suggest checking these out for yourself from Avon as they are truly good and inexpensive to boot!







Each tube is $4.99 USD and contains a beautiful sparkling shade of highly moisturizing and pigmented lip color. Who can't love that price? The shades all contain a healthy dose of gold shimmering flecks which ends up intensifying the color of the lipstick and making your lips gleam and shine! Gorgeous!

I tried two shades but I'm heading back for more shortly as truly they are gorgeous. The two colors I tried were Ruby in Gold and Golden Wine. Ruby in Gold is a beautiful deep peach a la my favorite MAC Lipglass Pink Grapefruit (I know, I know you're tiring of hearing about Pink Grapefruit already!). Now Gold Wine had me terrified when I first seen it! The shade takes vampy up a few notches to say the least. In the tube it's a deep, dark almost black cherry shade....terrifying....but it applies maroon with tiny flecks of gold! Gorgeous! If you ask which shade I like more I couldn't possibly say as they are both beautiful.























For the price and the great quality I'm slapping a Muse Approved sticker on 'em! I loves 'em and thinks you will to!



If you're looking for that perfect sparkling lippie for the Holiday Season with a nice price tag, look no further Avon Color Rich 24K Gold Lipstick has you covered!

Snag yours by clicking here! I still want to try out Golden Raisin, 24K, and Natural Gold for myself! How about you?

Tried these already?

Love 'em!

Okay, I had this in my hand last weekend at the AVON store, but it wasn't open and she wouldn't open it unless I was going to buy it. *sigh* and I was skeered it was going to be too dark. Thanks for showing me it's gorg. :)

Well I have ordered the following:
Glazewear Diamonds Eye Color in Bronze & Silver, Shimmer Tips Mascara in Gold & Silver and the 24K Gold Lipstick in Gold - have you tried any of them yet? I am excited despite the lack of Golden Wine, esp. about the Glazewear.

Oh I wanted to add if there is a dupe for Golden Wine, do let us know!

hey oldergirl!

It looks terrifying in the tube but once I tried it on with a bit of gloss it's quite a nice do-able maroon shade..simply gorg and really nice for the holiday!

December 5, 2008 at 2:46 PM  
Blogger the Muse said...

hey J!

I want the 24K Gold but little tiny scared it'll make my face fuller than it already is :P

Ummmm Urban Decay and Armani have a similar shade but ado not such a nice price! Try evil bay..I'm positive it'll even be less than 4.99!

You can buy these on amazon.com too, in case they're sold out elsewhere.

I'm so glad you reviewed these, they look pretty!

Hi! How are you!?

Honestly I've always been a bit of an avon basher..but damn straight that some items are AWESOME lately especially the lippies!

Ahhh don't worry 'bout it..we can never have too many lippies right?!

i had been waiting for the review on these! gorgeous! that golden wine is most beautiful on you! i wouldn't have imagined it being that colour judging from its black colour in the tube.

thank you so much. i had looked for Avon in this town but no luck yet. wait till i go back to KL. i was told about a couple of places for this brand. not sure if they have this at all. but no harm for trying! :)

girlfriend, you have to wear that for the holiday!

Wow, I have to say the second one really scares me when I first look at it. But it looks so gorgeous on you! I'll put this line into my to-buy-list (not lemming, since this one is cheap!) thanx for your great review!

These colors look extremely good on you! Sadly though (or is it luckily?) Avon is a brand that doesn´t exite me at all.

In New York I took all the Muses tips to heart and went home with tons of Philosophy (the lip shines are yummy, the skincare great), MAC, Bare Escentuals (do you like the Buxom Babes glosses?), Stila sets, MUFE foundation and Urban Decay 24/7 liners - I love them.

Holy crap, you are right; the dark one looks DARK in the tube. Beautiful on your lips though.

hey Anitacska!

Happy Monday! I hope so too as they are truly lovely. I'd suggest checking evilbay! Bet you can buy 'em there :) and not at a bad price either if you're really lemming!

Hugs!

hi jojoba!

Aren't they lovely? Thanks :-) *blush* The golden wine is an interesting one as the tube it's terribly scary but on it's quite elegant!

Good luck finding it on your side! :) I hope you do! if not you know you can always email me and I'm happy to help!

Hehehe! Yes I think I will! I was thinking of a smoky red eye look with the golden wine ;)

Thanks for your great comments jojoba! *hugs*

I used to hate the buxom babes but they changed from a sponge tip to a brush and now I love 'em!

I do love the shimmer in the glosses, especially the gold flecks in Ruby in Gold. It looks so pretty and wearable, totally great on you. Now where's my local Avon lady?

Yes yes, I know, you can order them on the website, but I'm still in love with the whole Avon lady concept. =P
