Avon, why did you fail me?

A while back I talked about a new nude creme Avon lipstick which I really liked as an everyday lipstick... Yesterday before I went out, I wanted to slap this lovely one on and while I was applying it, I felt the lipstick moving - lipstick moving is never a good thing - so I looked down and noticed it wasn't in the middle anymore but had moved to the side. I opened it a bit more to see the problem and noticed some cracks at the bottom. I gently tried to push it back and it broke off... No joke, it really did *panic attack*. So I did the most sanely thing I could think of, put it back in the middle and I put it in the freezer. After a few hours I took it out, let it defrost and here's the result. It's more or less back in its place but as soon as I begin applying it goes back to the side- why why? It's only 22° over here, it's not as if I'm in the tropics so this lipstick can melt away.
Avon sucks at making creme lipstick, this has never happened to me before with another lipstick. Sad part is I really loved the colour but no way am I repurchasing this one, if you know a lookalike let me know...

Wat apart ziet het er zo uit, haha.

Oh, hoe erg! Gelukkig heb je hem nog. Misschien in een potje zetten? Niet zo handig als een lippenstift, maar tenminste bruikbaar.

Evelien said...

Ja, heel apart en origineel hoewel ik de voorkeur gaf aan de oude vorm.

Da's wel een handig idee, dankje :) was sowieso niet van plan om 'm weg te gooien.

Ik zou 'm ook inderdaad in een potje doen en met een penseeltje gebruiken. Dat is sowieso zuiniger. Sunt dat -ie brak!

Evelien said...

woah..this is crazy. This hasn't happened to me yet and i just started getting into lipsticks and so we'll find out what happens in the next few months! Most of my lipsticks are Mac, Revlon, and a few other high end brands so I"m hoping this won't happen.

So far this is the only lipstick which suffered from this problem. My other Avon lipsticks are fine. I'm hoping I won't have this again, luckily I got a new copy and that one is still safe!
