I love wearing makeup and usually apply some when going to work or for special occasions. I find it adds a little somethin’ somethin’ to my look and just makes me feel better overall. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a very happy and confident woman whether I wear makeup or not. But wearing makeup just adds a little oomph to my mood. Do you know what I mean?
Unfortunately, some women cannot afford to buy makeup. And when looking for a job, something as simple as applying lipstick can go a long way to boost confidence. That’s where Dress for Success comes in.
Dress for Success is a non-profit organization whose mission is to empower women to achieve economic independence by providing a network of support, professional attire and the development tools to help women thrive in work and in life.
How does Avon fit into this? Through their Share the Power of Lipstick campaign, for every two lipsticks sold, Avon donates one lipstick to Dress for Success.
I received three colours from Avon‘s True Color lipstick collection to share with you so let’s take a look…
SHOP & HELP another woman achieve success
The Avon True Color Lipstick comes in over 40 stay-true shades with two finishes—satin and shimmer—providing high-impact color and luxurious moisture every time. And the True Color Bold Lipstick has pigment loading technology that packs more pigment into every stick, providing a full coverage bold lipstick with 50% more pigment (vs. Avon’s traditional lipstick).
The colours I received are Fearless Fuchsia, from the True Color Bold collection, and Pink Dreams and Poppy Love, from the regular True Color collection. Let’s see what these look like.
These swatches are one swipe each.
Fearless Fuchsia is a bright hot pink that I like to call Barbie pink. 😉 It’s bright and it’s bold. It leaves a stain on your lips so once the lipstick starts fading away, the colour stays behind so you won’t look like you just applied liner – know what I mean?
Pink Dreams is the lightest of the three shades I received. It’s a light rose colour and has a shimmer finish. This is definitely the type of colour I go for. It can be built up a bit by applying a few layers, but it’ll still remain a very natural look/colour.
Poppy Love is a warm-toned red that packs a punch. It has a satin finish, and while it’s part of the regular True Color line, it’s still quite bold. This one, like Fearless Fuchsia, will leave a stain on your lips. When I tried this one, my daughter asked me a good FOUR hours after the lipstick had worn off if I put colour on my lips. It was STILL noticeable.
This is my first time trying any lipstick from Avon and I really like them a lot. They feel very creamy on the lips and are very comfortable to wear. Fearless Fuchsia and Poppy Love are outside of my comfort zone, but Pink Dreams will definitely be in high rotation in my makeup routine.
The True Color lipsticks are usually $10 CAD each, but for the Share the Power of Lipstick campaign they are two for $9.99 CAD. How awesome is that?!? You get two lipsticks for the price of one AND you help give a lipstick to another woman. Win-win!
This campaign runs until July 18th, 2018, so hurry up and get your lipsticks! And with 70 shades to choose from, it may be hard to only get two. 😉
