REVIEW: Avon True Color Ultra Hydrating Lip Color

My coworker Joy is an Avon lady, which means that every month, I get to browse through a brochure and pick out a new makeup product to try!

The great thing about Avon is that the products are quite affordable, which means that if I don’t like something – which is sometimes the case when the swatch in print is different than in person – it’s not a big deal.
