One of my favorite items from the June BDJ Box is the Avon Vitaluscious Lipstick in 400 Reviving Red. It’s my first red lipstick. While I’m not a big fan of red lippies, it’s always a good idea to have one in my stash for formal events. According to the BDJ welcome card, this costs Php299.
The bullet is black plastic, with silver “Avon” band in the middle and silver “Vitaluscious” printed on the side. It’s very classy, but not really a stand out. The shade name can be found at the bottom.
Unfortunately it is a little drying, even if using a lip balm underneath. It also doesn’t survive eating and drinking, so touchups are needed. I wasn’t able to test how long lasting it is, since I ate two hours after I applied this on. Another thing is that Avon is only available through avon ladies or their dealer stores. I’ve had luck buying through the dealer store at Commonwealth, but it was very awkward. I’ve never been able to get connected to any avon ladies. So outside of subscription boxes, it seems pretty difficult to get Avon products.
Pros: reasonably priced; great shade of red
Cons: drying; limited availability
