Introducing Smooth Minerals Lipstick SPF 15 from Avon

Take Your Minerals Every Day

Aug 1, 2009

Avon puts multi-tasking minerals to work for your lips with new Smooth Minerals Lipstick.  Formulated with 100% natural and mineral colorants, Smooth Minerals Lipstick provides luminous color as it smoothes, hydrates and protects with SPF 15, delivering a lipstick that does it all for perfectly pretty lips.

Gentle on lips, the formula glides on with a smooth, creamy, lightweight texture and allows you build your color from sheer to full coverage. A Mega Moisture Complex with vitamins, aloe and conditioning Shea and Cocoa Butters helps keep lips soft, nourished and moisturized. Free of talcs, dyes, fragrance and preservatives the lipstick is suitable for even sensitive skin.

Like every product in the Avon Smooth Minerals Makeup Collection, Smooth Minerals Lipstick is formulated with Avon’s exclusive Mineral Complex which includes Tourmaline, Malachite, Copper, Magnesium and Zinc. The antioxidant- and vitamin-enriched formula is developed to help lips look and feel better with a polished, radiant look. Mineral-Glow pearls add brightness and help bring out lips’ natural vibrancy.

Smooth Minerals Lipstick comes in 14 flattering, neutral shades that provide subtle yet buildable color and shine. Apply one coat for a sheer, natural look, or two coats for more coverage.
