Review: Avon Glazewear Lipstick
Quality: 5 out of 5
Packaging: 5 out of 5
Where to buy: Avon.com
Avon glazewear lipsticks are my favorite lipsticks. They give semi-sheer color with a bit of shine. Some are more sheer then others, but most of them have a good color payoff. They aren't sticky or heavy, and there is a light fruity scent. There is no smell once you have it on, and it taste kind of sweet but it’s not strong. I've had the color and the shine last 6+ hours. They can come off when you eat, but I don't have a problem with drinking and I have gotten through a few meals with the lipstick staying on.
Because the formula is a little thick I like to have chap stick or lip balm under, I think it applies better that way and you don’t need to put as much on, thus you do not use up the product as quickly.
What is really nice is that these are a cheaper alternative to MAC’s slimshine lipsticks. Even at full price these are half as expensive as MAC’s. Avon doesn’t have as nice a color selection, I wish they had more pinks, but there are still some really nice colors. You just have to be careful with the online and catalog swatches, they turn out to be misleading. Avon has a great return policy though, so I guess that helps with that if you get a color you don't like. And I have swatches right here too.
The only thing I don't like about them is that they are so slim, there isn't a ton of product in the tube so I imagine I'll have to be re buying these a lot more often then any other lipsticks. These are $8 but I will only get them on sale because of how small they are.
Definitely try these out!
