Avon Glazewear Clear Lipgloss
Advantages: natural clear gloss, not too heavy, easy to apply, spf15
Disadvantages: needs reapplying, quite expensive when not on offer
Glazewear is a range of lipglosses offered by Avon. This range includes lots of coloured glosses and also sparkle finish glosses. There is also a clear lipgloss on offer.
The clear gloss is described as giving a 'super high gloss clear finish with added sun protection for everyday wear.' It contains SPF15 and is said to be non sticky.
This lipgloss is presented in a typical lipgloss style tube. The bottom half is curvy and made of clear plastic whilst the top half features a black lid with lipgloss wand attatched inside. This lipgloss has a sponge applicator. The design is very simple and functional.
This lipgloss is available from www.avonshop.co.uk or from your local Avon rep. A 6ml tube is priced at £6.00 but is currently reduced to £4.00 (on the Avon website).
I am a fan of Avon make up and one product I have been using on and off since I was a teenager, is the Clear Lipgloss. The packaging has changed quite a bit since I started using this in my teens and definitely for the better. I own quite a number of lipglosses. I mainly opt for pale colours but sometimes prefer to use a clear gloss for a more natural look.
This lipgloss is very easy to apply. It isn't overly thick or gloopy and a decent amount of product is transferred to the sponge each time. The sponge is very soft against my lips and allows the gloss to be spread neatly. I use this gloss sparingly as if I apply too much, it becomes heavy feeling and difficult to spread. It is slightly sticky at first - not overly so but if I get caught in a windswept moment, my hair does start to cling slightly to my lips.
Very little gloss is needed to coat my lips in a thin, even layer. The gloss leaves my lips feeling moisturised and hydrated. A lot of lipglosses dry my lips out so this is definitely a benefit of using this product. Providing I have only spread a small amount of gloss across my lips, it feels smooth and lightweight. The gloss aspect is quite nice but nothing outstanding. My lips look moist and have a natural shine which I like. On the odd occasion that I wear lipstick, I find that this gloss enhances the shine of the colour on my lips beautifully.
My lips feel nicely protected when wearing this lipgloss. I would appreciate a flavour like some other glosses have. The SPF 15 aspect makes this ideal for coating my lips during the warmer months. It isn't only our skin we need to take of - our lips are important too and I found my lips appreciated this protection during the Summer. I do find that this lipgloss needs to be reapplied often. Whilst my lips stay quite moist and protected for several hours, the shine starts to disappear quickly especially if I am eating or drinking. It is easy to top up and very practical as it can be done without a mirror!
One 6ml tube lasts me for ages but I still feel the price is quite expensive for a clear lipgloss. It isn't really any better at performing than the Make Up Academy clear gloss I also have in my collection (the MUA version is £5 cheaper). It is a good lipgloss though and leaves my lips feeling comfortable and protected.
Thanks for reading :)
Summary: no better than any other clear gloss except for spf15
