I had been using this lipstick quite a lot since the day I got it as the color and the texture is pretty good. Avon lipsticks have always been a pleasure to use for the vast shade selection and the best suited price range. These can always be grabbed on offers easily.
Shade: The name ‘Always rose’ hints more towards a pink but in fact this shade is more of a bronzed orange with a hint of pink. In natural light, the pick color is more prominent but on me this looks like a glazed brown. That’s the reason I wear it often as it adds a light color with sheen on my lips that look good for a daily wear.
Texture: The lipstick has a nice creamy texture and it applies easily. It had medium to buildable pigmentation and it requires 2-3 coats to get the actual shade visible on the lips. The finish is a bit frosty but nothing too OTT. But I do find the texture a bit drying so I apply a lip balm after removing this 1. There is no problem of bleeding or feathering of the shade.
Staying power: It stays on an average of 3 hours on me without having any meals in between. It would easily get wiped off even after light meals. It fades away evenly and no stains are left behind.
Packaging: The lipstick comes in a sleek and shiny black encasing with a golden lining in the middle. The bullet inside is quite sturdy and there is no chance of melting if the shade in the hot/humid weather.
A good every day wear kind of a shade.
Available on offers.
Quantity is too less compared to the price.
The shade is a bit frosty so if you don’t like frosty colors, then this may not be a good option.
A bit drying texture.
Available through representatives so shade selection seeing the catalogue swatches may be tricky.
Final Verdict: The shade is nothing unusual and may not suit every skin tone. At the price paid, the quantity and quality seems less. If you are looking for a nice everyday color with a sheen, then this shade can be a good option J.
