Curious about Avon’s new two-tone lipstick? I don’t blame you! This innovation is not something you see everyday – although as an Avon rep I could honestly see this day coming.
When Avon released the VDL Tint Bar Triple Shot product back in May, I was excited for more U.S. folks to be exposed to Korea’s hot “gradient lip” trend. However, when I saw was that the VDL product was a lip balm (not a lipstick, gloss, or stain), my first thought was: “Hmmm, that looks great and all, but my customers are DEFINITELY gonna want something like this that has more full coverage than a balm”.
Well friends, that full coverage product is here! Without further ado, let’s take a look at all the details of the new Flat Two-Tone Lipstick, brought to you by Avon x The Face Shop.

Why a two-tone lipstick?
You might be wondering: what is the point of a lipstick like this anyways? What will this do for me? Well – if you haven’t been caught by the ombré lip craze yet, there is no time like the present!
Ombré is a practice of applying lip color in such a way that it looks like one color is blending or fading into the second color. Usually, this is done with one darker shade and one lighter shade to create a sort of faded look. But really – the possibilities are endless!
When the darker shade is on the outside, as pictured above, it is designed to make the lips look fuller. If you reverse the colors so the darker shade is on the inside, you’d have a more Korean-style look known as “gradient lips”. This look is much more playful and cutesy, often giving the appearance of having stained the lips by eating a red popsicle.
With this new Avon two-tone lipstick, you can achieve either of these ombré lip looks quickly and easily – often with a single swipe! Plus, the dual color design takes the guesswork out of choosing colors that look great blended together. Each shade pairing was especially designed for the ombré look, so the colors are highly complementary.
What are the different shades of Flat Two-Tone Lipstick?
The Flat Two-Tone Lipstick comes in 6 different dual shades including Orange Meets Red, Purple With Beige, Pink Delight, Double Pink, Beige Effect, and Brown Effect.
