Ok, so it looks way more like a gloss to me than a lipstick and at €16 seems a bit spendy for a product you buy from the lady at the door, but when you hear that Avon’s new SpectraColour product comes with a Piz Buin/Revlon-alike dial which you can use to adjust the shade, you start paying a bit more attention.
I haven’t gotten up close and personal yet but Avon say that it’s a “lightweight, high-shine formula [that] delivers beautiful colour that lasts,” so I’m guessing it may be more similar in formulation to Revlon’s new ColourStay Liquid Lipsticks than yer average bullet of colour. But what this baby has to offer is that the two shades can be mixed together thanks to the wonder of the dial to form seven separate shades. Very bright – literally.
The lipsticks are available in six colour palettes (The Pinks, The Roses, The Nudes, The Lilacs, The Wines and The Browns), all of which have the ability to churn out seven different iterations. So if you use it wisely and don’t just keep slapping on either the lightest or the darkest shade all the time, you may get quite a bit of Beaut.ienomical use out of these. If you don’t, you’ll end up with one chamber empty and one full, which is always the downfall of these sort of yokes.
