Avon Ultra Bold Color Lipstick Fearless Fuchsia

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!

Here, let Swatchy Time show you that I’m right.

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]

*product sent by PR for review, thoughts are mine as always!

  • Woa, that color IS bold! And I didn’t think it settled in lines too much especially for this kind of color.
    I love pink colors like this but I usually stay away from full coverage lipsticks, so I don’t know.
    I actually have wanted a pink like this in a matte formulation, though. 🙂

    • The finish is almost matte looking after a bit Lena! And I think you could totally wear this one! I’d love to see it on you!

  • Oh wow, this really is a Barbie pink! I don’t think I can do it, either. This shade looks like it’s got a white base, and usually I can’t be friends with those :p

    • Right? So hard. You have to have the right colouring for it. I think dark black hair for one. Or, you have to have blonde hair and a tan like Barbie LOL!

  • Haha, and nope, I cannot wear this 😛 I wonder what Pantone color Mattel uses for that Barbie pink anyway?

  • Liz

    Just noticing now that Barbie has lashes like tarantulas… charming. ;O I think you can totally pull off this pink – it looks so good on your lips and against your skin tone. My face will just look jaundiced if I go there.

  • wow brightness! not quite the color for me but its awesome that avon is coming out with some more eye popping colors.

  • This post made me start singing “I’m a Barbie Girl” haha. I love love love this shade. I think it looks pretty on your lips though! I love the opacity

    • LOL, hahaha I was gonna write that, but since I was singing in my post yesterday I figured you guys would get sick of it haha!
      It’s just horrible with the rest of my face though. I think I need to get my hair re-pnked and then it might work better but thanks!

  • Yep, that’s Barbie alright! It definitely should say Made By Mattel 🙂 But it’s pretty, I like it on your lips!

    • LOL hahaha I like that Made By Mattel hahaha. Thanks, but it’s just too much even for me!

  • I think the secret to pulling off this lipstick shade is attitude. I’m just not hip enough for it. 😛 Looks great with your skin tone though!

    • I agree! And loads of black cat eye liner too. Thanks, but full face on it looks horrid with the fray hair trust me!

  • Lily

    A pink you can’t wear? NO WAY!!!!!!!!!

  • Ooh, love it! Cheers to Avon for creating such a bold shade and a great formula. I’m a huge sucker for bright pinks, but there are some I just can’t get away with, like MAC Candy Yum Yum and Viva Glam Nicki. But I’m sure this does look quite pretty on you 🙂

    • Hahaha, yeah it’s almost like Candy Yum Yum actually. I can’t do that one, but I think the Viva Glam Niki I can as I recall! Awww thanks but really not. It’s too 80s on me hahaha!

  • Beautiful shade but not one I could ever wear without looking ridiculous!

  • What a pink!!! I don’t think anyone could wear this with ease, girl — but MAN is it ever a showstopper.

    (I bet it would look great on you with your hair all unicorn-y and colour chalked :P)

    • LOL hahaha, yeah. I need to get it unicorned up again. Been LAZY about it lately haha! I like using any shampoo-that’s my excuse!

  • Toya

    Yep, any kind of pink (or any lippie really) with a white base look HORRIBLE on me! This is pretty damn bold too, I’ll admit. And it looks like it IS very opaque, which could make for hard times on anyone. Good on ya for trying it anyway, Tracy! 🙂

  • It’s pretty close to that MAC shade!
