Introducing Pro Color & Gloss Lip Duo from Avon

Double the Drama

The first-ever lipstick with a built-in gloss core

Oct 1, 2010

Avon introduces a dynamic duo of rich color and glossy shine with the new Pro Color & Gloss Lip Duo, an unprecedented new multi-tasking lip duo. Delivering the modern layered look of luscious color topped with wet shiny gloss, the two-in-one package takes the guesswork out of matching shades.

Wear the color alone, gloss alone, or two formulas together to create a multitude of versatile looks. The Pro Color & Gloss Lip Duo lets you customize your look however and whenever you want.

The lipstick infuses lips with richness and depth, providing a gorgeous satin finish that magnifies lips’ fullness. Lips look refined and shapely with a cushiony feel and color that lasts for hours.

The gloss layers on a wet, high-gloss finish with intense shine, making lips look drenched in moisture. Non-sticky and non-tacky, the formula delivers multi-dimensional color. Lips are left looking and feeling moisturized.

This first-ever lipstick with a built-in gloss core is available in 10 professionally selected complementary shade duos.

“The Avon Pro Color and Gloss Lip Duo is a great tool to create almost any lip look,” says Jillian Dempsey, Avon Global Creative Color Director.  “For a fuller pout, place a dab of the super shiny gloss on your lips.  You can also just wear the lip gloss alone if you're looking for subtle shine.”

HOW TO USE: Twist lipstick component for creamy color that shapes, smoothes and defines or squeeze gloss on bottom of component for luscious gloss. For double the drama, apply both for saturated color with high shine.
