Extra Lasting

Hey everyone!
How have you ladies been doing? I’m a bit busy, but I’m doing great. Went to my niece’s birthday party yesterday, that’s why I’m submitting my post today. My niece had turned 2 and I enjoyed the party and spending some time with the little birthday girl.;)
Today I’m placing two Extra Lasting products from Avon out here that I’ve tried out.

Extra Lasting Liquid Foundation SPF12
About this product
The Extra Lasting Liquid Foundation SPF12 is a medium-to-full coverage. The ads say that it’s always fresh and never cakey for 18 hours, it resists water and sweat, it stands up to heat and humidity, and that it feels featherlight and flexible all day. There are 18 colors available of this foundation, but the three darkest shades don’t contain SPF. There’s also a medium coverage cream-to-powder foundation SPF15 available of the Extra Lasting line.

What do I think about this product?
It doesn’t get off easily, but it does get off when I’m really sweating. So this foundation is not completely water resistant, but I feel comfortable wearing it. What I love about this foundation is that it looks natural.
My score: a 9 out of 10

I had applied the Extra Lasting Liquid Foundation SPF12 in Caramel on my hand so you can see how it looks like. I hadn’t applied the foundation above my knuckles, so you can also see the difference.

Extra Lasting Lipstick
About this product
The Extra Lasting Lipstick is available in 10 colors. The ads say, ‘up to 8 hours of creamy coverage’.

What do I think about this product?
I’ve tried the Extra Lasting Lipstick in two colors, Enduring Wine and Forever Burgundy. I have a feeling that the Enduring Wine gets off easier then the Forever Burgundy. The Enduring Wine contains a little bit of shimmer, while the Forever Burgundy doesn’t contain any shimmer. After 8 hours you’ll find a little bit of the Forever Burgundy still on my lips. A lipcolor from Avon from the past that I found very long wearing was ‘My Lip Miracle’; the color stayed on bright for hours, even after eating and drinking. Coming back at the Extra Lasting Lipstick, I love the Forever Burgundy. It feels super comfortable on my lips and I love the color. The color of the Forever Burgundy is actually darker then on the picture below; it’s probably because of the lighting. I’m giving a 9 out of 10 for the Enduring Wine and a 10 out of 10 for the Forever Burgundy!;)
