AVON Ultra Color Rich Mega Impact Lipsticks come in 8 shades (in NZ), range from nude to deep red. Here's a description from AVON website.
" Lip colour goes high definition. Colour-matched magnifiers saturate each shade with amplified colour and multi-faceted shine. Jewel shape angled application for daring definition. Chromapixel Technology for high definition colour… REDS are redder, PINKS are pinker".

There are only 5 shades that come in my sample pack. Never So Nude, Magnified Mauve, Pink Pop, Really Rosy and Divine Wine.

For the swatches, all colours are applied on bare lips with no lip liner and straight from the tube. Here's my natural lip colour: They are very creamy but not heavy on the lips. With the name "Mega Impact", I expect the colours to be more intense & opaque. This range is not for you if you don't like lipsticks with shimmer as they all are.

Never So Nude is a brown beige nude with shimmer. It give a very subtle sheen on the lips. Usually my skin tone doesn't work well with most of nude shades. This colour, however, has a warm tone to it which doesn't make me look like a corpse.

Magnified Mauve is not at all mauve as its named. It's a medium reddish brown with shimmer. The gold shimmer makes it looks more interesting and very flattering.
Pink Pop is a warm medium pink with shimmer. It reminds me of NARS Orgasm blush but pinker & with more subtle shimmer. This shade applies sheerer than you see on the tube. I really like it, though. As you can see from the picture, it compliments my skin nicely. It's my most favourite out of the 5 shades.
Really Rosy is another shade that the name doesn't match colour. It's a medium orange-y red with. The shimmer on this one is so visible compared to the other 3 above. I think it's a great colour for someone who wants to try bright lip look but doesn't want it to be too bold.
Divine Wine is a bright rich red with a tint of puple. It gives a really nice gloss on my lips. The gold shimmer doesn't make it look shimmery at all. I've never owned a red lipstick because I thought red is more for older women. But this colour wants me to try more reds. It's brighten up my complexion & doesn't age me.
I'm happy with the formula of these lipsticks. At NZ$24.99, it's one of the higher prices for AVON lipsticks. But the price is still very affordable just like other AVON products.
