Avon Simply Pretty Darling Mauve and Romance Lipsticks – Review and Swatch

O Gujariya!

I have a love-hate relationship with Avon and to be particular their makeup range. I usually purchase it from authorized distributors who show me catalogs they get every month. I am pretty happy with the few I’ve tried in skincare. But their cosmetics sometimes fire our expectations. Lets read to know how pretty and simple are these lippies 🙂


These two lipsticks were a part of my purchase from my colleague, who is really passionate about her work with the brand.

Avon Simply Pretty – Romance

Avon Simply Pretty – Darling Mauve



Price: 218INR each. You can check with any Avon distributor for special discounts!


My Experience With Avon Simply Pretty Lipsticks

So you’ve seen the swatch and you can easily tell which one would have been my favorite 😉 Yes, the Avon Simply Pretty – Darling Mauve is a real darling. I love this one because it has a creamy texture and is easy to apply. The lovely pink shade is just perfect for everyday wear. Thankfully its neither shimmering and nor too matte and glides smoothly.


Me Wearing Avon Simply Pretty – Darling Mauve

The other lipstick, Avon Simply Pretty – Romance, is just a mediocre rusty lipstick. This is so different from the previous one because it glides as a thin film and needs layering to actually guess the shade. I have strong aversion towards shimmering lipsticks and so I didn’t find it great! But for those who are comfortable with light reflecting lips, can try this 😉 Yes, I love wearing gloss, but this seems like a glorified gloss :/ Well, opinions differ!

I really cannot give you a Pros and Cons list here because these lipsticks are from the same range of Avon but the Mauve shade is super chic and the other shade is so disappointing! I’ve heard many of the Avon customers complaining about the shade not matching to what is shown in the catalog.

I recommend the Darling Mauve Shade for everyone who love to wear lipsticks but do not like it flashy 😉
