Avon: A writer’s color handbook

What color are these leaves?

Off the top of your head, how many shades of red can you think of ?

  • Red
  • Crimson
  • Scarlet
  • Blood red
  • Maroon
  • Rose (is that red or pink?)
  • fire engine red
  • strawberry (thinking of fruits here folks)
  • cherry (now I’m making a fruit salad)
  • watermelon (ok I gotta stop or I’m gonna raid my kitchen!)

And yeah, it’s been a REALLY long day in the sun, but that’s all I can come up with right now.  But do you want to know a little secret?  AVON has a rainbow palette to make a writer drool over.  Forget aritists or even makeup. Writers…you need to grab a copy of an AVON magazine and browse the lipstick and nail polish section.  I swear, you will forever thank me when you need to come up with a non-cliche color description.

Go on.  Grab a magazine and have fun!
