I have finally met a pink lipstick that I can’t wear at all. And it’s too bad, because the formula is really lovely! Behold the eye-searing pink of Avon Ultra Bold Color Lipstick Fearless Fuchsia($10):
When I opened it up, I thought WOW. That’s pink! But this shade is called Fearless Fuchsia. I’d have called it True Barbie Pink, because DANG if this isn’t the exact shade of Barbie’s little lips!
Yup. Barbie’s Lips. Exact shade. I guess there’s a bit of blue in there, but for me a fuchsia needs more purple. Anyways, this is a shade even I can’t get away with. I can usually make most shades of lipstick work for me, but I have finally met my pink match. I surrender to Avon Ultra Bold Color Lipstick Fearless Fuchsia!
The formula is quite something! Avon Ultra Bold Color Lipstick Fearless Fuchsia is really opaque, and with a shade like this it tends to settle a bit into lip lines as you can see. Pinks with a white base like this will almost always do that, so if you like this shade, make sure you prep and exfoliate your lips first. It’s smooth and creamy, and really comfy to wear though. And lasts a good 4 hours if I don’t eat or drink anything.
If you can wear Barbie Pink lipsticks with ease, I’m jealous! You’ll love Avon Ultra Bold Color Lipstick Fearless Fuchsia. I’ll use this for ombré effects with other pink lipsticks that I can wear. Or a dark purple lipstick like MAC Cyber. That I can see working for me!
How about you? Would you be able to wear this bright, Barbie pink lipstick? What lipstick shade can you not pull off? [emoji lipstick]
