Itsa hit anna miss...

I have been getting on with Avon quite a bit lately. They have featured quite heavily in my make-up (I love their liners, I really should do a post on them). But I just can't get on with the Colourdisiac Lipsticks.

I don't think you can get them any more (they aren't in Book6), but I paid €4.50 for Satin Sheets in October 2011. I picked up Satin Sheets. I love the colour. Its a beautiful Pink. Gorgeous, perfect for Spring.

It applies like a dream and has great staying power (4 hours before I needed to reapply). This range is quite heavily scented. Its pretty and I don't mind the scent, but I bloody well HATE the taste it leaves in my mouth. I am a lip-licker, well, I mean to say: I lick my lips a lot. So I like my lips to taste nice (cherry/vanilla/mint balms rule) or they must taste like nothing.

When I wear this, I constantly have a horrible gick bitter taste at the back of my tongue. BLAAARRRGGGGH. I actually find myself pursing my lips (like Maggie Smith in Downton Abby), which is not a good look on my 30-something Face.

The colour though, oh, the colour is just lovely. Perfect for spring. When the sky is supposed to be bright, blue and warming but instead its greyer than a zombie's @$$, this is the anti-dote colour.

I am far too chicken to do this shade proper justice (I am also too yellow-toned), so I pat it onto my lips lightly and slather on lipbalm (to try to hide that awful taste).

On the day that I layered it on to get that Bold Bright Pop of Colour,  it applied like a dream and managed to stay creamy and balm-like on my lips for a good 2 hours, although it looked a bit chalky and tended to settle into any cracks. After that though it was as tough it had stained my lips a really pretty pink and I only really had to top up colour in the center of my lips (where my lips touch/come together) to keep the colour even.

I just wish it tasted better.
