Avon Red Rules Ultra Color Rich Lipstick

A couple weeks ago, I ordered the newest matte lipstick that Avon offers in their Ultra Color Rich lipstick  line. I had to get it, because the other matte lipstick of theirs I own is so smooth. I don't know how they do it, but yes, they actually have smooth matte lipsticks! 

As you can see, it's a deep red. In the catalogue I couldn't exactly tell what shade it was going to be, but I thought it was going to be a brighter red than this. I'm still happy with the overall shade. It's going to be a perfect fall lipstick color. 

My lipstick came with all of the scratches on the back.. I don't know why, I've never had that happen with Avon before. I didn't want to go through the hassle of returning it though. 

It does look brighter in sunlight, which I like. I love all shades of red, but I was really hoping that it was going  to be a bright red like it looked in the catalogue. I'll definitely be wearing this in the fall! 

  • great price ($5 on sale) 
  • smooth for being matte
  • rich, opaque color in one application
  • isn't bright as it shows in the catalogue
I'm happy that this matte lipstick is as smooth as the others from Avon, but the color was way off. That's the one thing that I don't like about Avon, you never know if the lipstick swatch is going to be accurate. I think that this is the perfect color for fall, but right now it's just so dark and deep. I'll be keeping this in my drawer until the time is right! 

Random Thoughts:
Oh yeah, my mom is making me watch clips from the movie Xanadu.
The outfits in this movie hurt my eyes.. haha. 


  1. This red looks good on your skin tone. Bold and beautiful!

  2. what's the exact code/color of this lippy? :)

    1. I'm sure you can find it on their website! The code was on the wrapper and since I bought this so long ago, I no longer have it.
