      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A good lip gloss that lasts longer than many, has strong colour and is excellent value.

      I don't buy regularly from Avon, but decided to try a few products as it is so much fun browsing the catalogue and this seemed good value. I was very pleasantly surprised. The formula feels very soft and quite thick, which means that it goes on nice and smoothly but provides excellent coverage. It feels like a gloss, and looks like a gloss (in that it is glossy!). It has higher colour pigmentation than many glosses though, so it is more opaque and vivid. I bought this gloss in the fuschia colour, which is great for nights out with certain outfits, but is very bright so I would not wear it with everything. It doesn't have much of a smell, and the packaging is a bit cheap looking, but then it is a good value product so I don't mind that. The colour is very long-lasting for a gloss, so it seems to deliver its promise. I would not say it has the staying power or coverage of lipstick though. Overall, if you are looking for a glossy, shiny lip gloss that has strong colour pigmentation, good staying power (for a gloss) and is good value, then this is definitely worth a try.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A lip gloss which makes the lips shiny and pretty but that doesn't stick around

      I am not a massive fan of lipsticks because I don't think they suit me but I do really like lip glosses and I own more of them then is necessary. That still doesn't stop me from buying new ones however and the latest addition to my collection is the Glazewear Sparkle Lip Gloss by Avon What does the product do? The product promises to give the lips an incredibly glossy appearance and a beautiful sparkling finish. It claims to give the lips a splash of colour and leaves the lips feeling comfortable and not sticky. Available Shades The product comes in a few different shades but there aren't enough of them to suit everyone. There are a few shades of pink, purples and bronze colours each will lovely names such as Crushed Rose, Pink Lemonade and Mango. I have Shimmering Amethyst which is a hot pink shade with subtle flecks of purple which sounds horrendous but it's really not! How do you use the product? The product is to be used in the same way as a normal lip gloss. It is to be applied to the lips as often as required. Packaging and Price The product comes contained within a see through tube so you can see the exact colour that you are getting. The lid is black and the wand is inside the lid. The writing has been created using sparkling lettering and there is a sparkling wrapper around the top of the tube. The wand has a spongey finish and it is rectangle in shape. The product costs around £2.50 which is really cheap and it available from Avon. Application The product is quite thick in consistency but as the brush doesn't big up much of the product then you don't need to worry about ending up with too much of the gloss on your lips. The aroma is quite alcoholic and smells a little bit like Baileys but you can't really smell it anymore once it's on your lips. It doesn't really have a taste at all. You don't need to apply much of the product to get the desired look and the applicator is soft and allows you to be quite precise. Performance The colour is a lot more intense on the lips than I was expecting. I had tried it on my hand and it appeared to be quite sheer but the colour on my lips is very vibrant and a bit much for me. The product is glossy on the lips and it gives them a very shiny finish. The gloss is quite long lasting on the lips but it is simple to rub off and if you eat or drink, it disappears almost instantly. It stains your lips a bit so you can still see the colour for a while even once it has been removed. Conclusion All in all, this is a good lip gloss if you want high shine and intense colour. The staying power isn't great but it is very glossy and completely comfortable on the lips. I won't be using this product again because of the colour and I wouldn't repurchase but this product would be better appreciated by those who like the heavily made up look.

        ==Overview== I have had many iterations of the Avon Glazewear lipgloss over the years. Avon make a clear gloss, a tinted gloss and a dazzle gloss in a number of different colours. This review is about the clear gloss which is my favourite. ==The lipgloss== The lipgloss is not as sticky as some other lipglosses (like Juicy Tubes for example), although slightly sticky, it seems to have a consistency that lies between a gloss and a lip balm so immediately when you use it lips feel moisturised and much better than without a gloss on, which can't be said for all lip glosses. It feels a bit more buttery than sticky. Nothing worse for me than feeling like I've got huge lips just because the lipgloss is super sticky. The gloss is 6ml in size and comes in a tube with a wand applicator rather than just a tube which you apply directly to your lips. I much prefer the wand-type lip glosses as I feel you can get a better coverage and stay within your lip lines much more easily. The clear gloss is excellent for using alone for a natural look or using over other lipsticks to make them shiny. As it goes on nice and easily, the downside as with all glosses is that it comes off easily too and you've absolutely had it if you eat or drink. However, if anyone has found a lipgloss that does stay on a long time, please tell me which one it is as I've yet to find a decent one! It has a nice smell to it, I can't describe it, quite a sweet smell but doesn't really taste of anything which is what I like. It doesn't have any glitter bits in or anything else (the dazzle version does and I don't like the feeling of that on my lips). The gloss doesn't give a super glossy look without a few coats, it certainly doesn't have that vinyl look like Juicy Tubes can give you but I prefer this as it looks more natural. ==Value for money== This lip gloss isn't going to break the bank. It is currently retailing at £6 but Avon regularly have deals such as 2 for £7 or half price offers so if you keep an eye out you can pick it up for around £3 which in my opinion is a great price for a quality product. It doesn't feel cheap and nasty like some lip glosses do. ==Overall== This is definitely my 'go to' product for clear lip glosses. The price and quality of the item can't be compared to anything else on the high street, so for me Avon do it again!

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Great product overall, can compete with more expensive brands.

        I am always using lip balms and glosses rather than lipsticks as I prefer how they feel and look on the lips. I have a big variety of lip glosses in my make up bag but until recently had never heard of these Avon Glazewears. A friend actually gave me a pack of three of these glosses and I have been using them regularly since I acquired them. Avon is a brand I buy from now and then online and occaisonally if a rep. delivers a catalogue to me. I tend to stick to buying products I already know though and have always been a bit cautious about purchasing things I've never used before. However Avon's cheap prices are a big attraction and they quite often have special discounts and offers that are very attractive. Avon's Glazwear range includes glosses and lipsticks. The glosses come in several different varieties such as Glazewear Dazzle and Glazewear Shine as well as 'Duo Reflect' and the standard Clear Gloss. The glosses also come in a range of shades which vary between dark browns and vivid reds across the spectrum to cool ambers and oranges and delicate pinks. The three Glazewears in my pack were: Glazewear Shine in Iced Pink; Glazewear Clear Gloss; Glazewear Intense in Sundance The glosses come in a plastic tube or mini bottle. There is a large lid so you can hold the wand easily. The wand unscrews from the bottle with ease and then you can pull out the applicator smoothly. The applicator has a soft sponge tip end which is about half and inch in length and slightly tipped at one edge to make applying at an angle easier. The bottles contain 6ml of product. There is little information about the products actually printed on the bottles and you may have to check the Avon Shop website to find out more information if you require it. Each gloss in the Glazewear range is normally priced at £6 but I have noticed they are regularly reduced to half price (£3) which I think is a superb price. Glazewear Clear Gloss: This gloss is marked as being SPF/FPS 15. It's completely clear and looks like some kind of glue through the transparent bottle. It's very easy to apply as it glides over the lips. It has an immediate moisturising effect on the lips and softens them straight away. It feels like a very luxurious lip balm. The gloss looks ultra shiny and gives a moistened lips effect which looks healthy and on trend. I have always used this on its own but it could just as easily be applied over a lipstick to create depth and shine. Great product and good value. Glazewear Intense in Sundance: After looking at the website I can not see this variety of gloss listed as being available. The shade is similar to the 'Bronzed and beautiful' in the Duo Reflect range though. It's a deep, shimmery bronze brown shade which comes to life on my lips. It certainly has the 'metallic effect' which is attributed to the Duo Reflect range. This gloss looks great on my lips and is striking. The colour is quite dark though and looks daker than I imagined it would be after just looking at the bottle. It looks like I have a proper lipstick on with a gloss over the top. It gives and even slick of colour which is long lasting and which doesn't rub off in certain areas like a lipstick would. It's easy to reapply when needed without having to be too careful when you put it on. You don't need to worry about smudging the colour or anything as it just slides on and looks perfect. Glazewear Shine in Iced Pink: This is a gloss which gives an intense silvery shine. The effect looks like pearl with sunlight bouncing off it's surface. I like the effect but I find the shade of this gloss a little bit dated and it reminds me of 1980's style makeup. It can look a little garish if you apply too much so I tend to just dab the lips rather than totally cover them. Overall I'm very pleased with the Glazewear range and think they are a wonderful product. I've used many other more expensive brands than this and these are just as good. I would recommend trying them if you've never used them before but I would be cautious with your choice of shade and advise perhaps sticking to the nude shades. www.avonshop.co.uk

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Yet another Avon product that has been a let down!

        I like to have colourful lips rather than shiny without much colour, which is why I now often use lipstick rather than lipgloss. I have used Avon lipgloss in the past and the colour was never any good and it didn't add much shine either, which put me off Avon lipglosses completely. That is until they introduced a Glazewear sparkle lipgloss. I got this when I got the diamonds mascara and glimmerstick... I was going through a phase of sparkly stuff! I thought this must be better than there original Glazewear liquid lip colour and as it was half price I thought I would buy it and give it a go. This review is for the Avon Glazewear sparkle lipgloss which is just the same as those in the picture you can see, but more sparkly! I am writing this because it is still available to buy from Amazon and eBay. There are a few colours to choose from but I opted for 'coral reef' which is a bold pink colour. I tried it straight away when I got it and straight away there was a bright colour visible on my lips which was noticeable, just what I wanted. However, there wasn't much 'sparkle'. As soon as I took the lipgloss out of the box it came in I could see it wasn't as sparkly as I thought it would be, and you could only see a slight hint of what looked like gold glitter in the tub. It doesn't come out on your lips like gold glitter though! You do also need to put a few coats of this lipgloss on as the sponge applicator doesn't seem to pick much of the gloss up when in the tube. I don't think this will mean the product will run out fast but that the spongle applicator isn't as good as those you get with other lipglosses that I am used to using. It does stay on your lips for quite some time though and it isn't too sticky, like some lipglosses can be. Therefore, I do still like the lipgloss and do still wear it, it's just a shame it's not as sparkly as the Avon brochure made it out to be. The diamonds mascara was also the same and was a complete let down, and it was only the glimmerstick that had a hint of sparkle to it. I have previously wrote reviews on here on these two products if you are interested. After my experience of these 'sparkle' limited edition products though I won't be buying anything similiar that Avon do again. Instead I will stick to the L'Oreal glam shine lipgloss which I love. The lipgloss only cost me £3 directly from Avon, as it was half price, an introductory price. This is still available from Amazon for its full price of £6 and eBay where the prices vary. I would only recommend this for the nice colour but don't purchase it if you want a bit of sparkle on your lips as this will not give you that!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          This is a good lip gloss for a cheap price.

          My mascara and lip gloss are the two cosmetics that I don't leave the house without. I once used this Avon Glazewear Liquid Lip Colour in Buttered Rum shade. The regular price was £6 but I bought it at about £3.50 as it was one of the discounted items of that month. ************* THE PACKAGING ************* Avon Glazewear Liquid Lip Colour comes in a transparent 6-cm tube with a black 4.5-cm lid. The tube bulges at the center. The narrow base makes it difficult to stand on my dresser counter. The black lid has a twist-to-open/close design. A 6-cm wand is attached to the black lid and on the tip of the wand is a 1-cm sponge applicator that slants for ease in applying the lip gloss on the lips. The transparent tube makes the liquid content visible. ************************* MANUFACTURER'S DESCRIPTION ************************* *Full coverage *Lightweight feel *Non-greasy *Moisturizes with Vitamin A, C and E *Use alone or over your favourite lipstick ****************** THE LIQUID LIP GLOSS ****************** Avon Glazewear Liquid Lip Colour has thick liquid formulation so I don't have to worry spilling it out when the tube stumbles whilst it is open. It has a sweet candy-like vanilla scent but it is actually tasteless. The sweet scent is not strong and it gradually goes off in about 2 minutes after applying the lip gloss. *************** AVAILABLE SHADES *************** Berry Cool Blushing Brown Sugar Buttered Rum Chic Mauve Chocolate Fling Clear Crimson Darling Pink ********** ON THE LIPS ********** Avon Glazewear Liquid Lip Colour actually feels a little greasy upon application (even when the description says it is non-greasy) but it becomes lighter on the lips in about a minute. Applying a single coat or 2 makes my lips shiny with that sexy pout. However, putting on 3 coats is just too much. It makes the colour uneven and creates awkward deposits in the creases of the my lips giving them those "gridlines" look. It even tends to get flaky and cakey. Tip: When using this lip gloss the first time, try to know how many coatings your lips can handle in front of the mirror. If 3 coatings make the lip gloss flaky, then always settle for 1 or 2 coats. You don't want to mess with your handkerchief when you overdo it outside your home. ************* STAYING POWER ************* Avon Glazewear Liquid Lip Colour stays on my lips for 2 hours when I don't eat or drink a cup of coffee. The liquid is highly transferable so it really messes anything that my lips get in contact with. ******** SUMMARY ******** Avon Glazewear Liquid Lip Colour makes my lips shiny and pouty. Its sweet-candy scent is nice though the smell lasts only for about 2 minutes. It feels greasy on my lips upon application but gradually gets lighter in a minute (What lip gloss on earth doesn't feel greasy at first anyway?). A single coat or 2 makes the lips look kissable but putting much makes them look flaky and cakey.

            Overall Terrific Product..great price and quality

            When i was flipping through my friends Avon brochure, i came across these little gems. I was tempted due to the promise of a lip colour that has the coverage of a lipstick, with the shininess of a gloss, as well as being a long lasting formulation. I was even more tempted by the price, $6 a pop, so naturally i had to give in. I purchased two different shades, dazzling pink, and blushing. I then waited for the glosses to come in with much anticipation. I received the lip shades in no time, and was slightly disappointed with the blushing shade which was much darker than the brochure makes it seem. Beware when ordering from the brochure, that many of the shades are darker than they look. If you prefer lighter shades, then stick to ones that look quite pale in the brochure. I tried on the dazzling pink shade first, and was very pleased. The shade was like a rosy pink colour and was very flattering on my newly tanned skin (medium/tan complexion). The lip colour did cover like a lipstick which was great for coverage purposes but was also quite drying on the lips. The texture was very smooth and silky, rather than sticky like conventional glosses. I was very happy with the texture, as well as the lasting power of the gloss. I did have to reapply every few hours but nothing in comparison to my other lip shades which barely last an hour. I didn't like the drying effects of the lip colour, but the smooth texture was nice. Since i purchased these lip colours, Avon has come out with a new moisturizing formula with vitamins A, C and E, which would probably prevent the drying effect that i encountered. Regular Shades: Berry Cool Blushing Brown Sugar Buttered Rum Chic Mauve Chocolate Fling Clear Crimson Darling Pink I was very impressed with these lip shades in general. I recommend going for lighter shades in the brochure, because they are generally darker when you receive them. These are definitely worth a try, especially at $6 each.

              Disadvantages

              If there is one beauty must have item that should be in everyone's make up bag its lip-gloss. It can create a nice daytime look that's less heavy looking than lipstick and can glam up your lips big style for the evening!! I personally have a difficult time living with lip gloss as my hair is long and I can't stand it when I go outside and my hair is constantly sticking to my lips!! Then I have to peel it off my lips taking off half of what I put on and a mass of sticky hair! It was my mission to find one that looked gorgeous, felt nice on my lips and wasn't too sticky. When I eventually found it (after numerous different brands I can tell you!) I decided that Avon Glazewear was one of the best in my opinion. Avon Glazewear Lipgloss is a lipgloss/liquid lip colour that comes in a variety of shades. Currently (Campaign 8 2005) they are: Clear Tickled Pink Brown Sugar Darling Pink Delish Crimson Berry Lavish Gold Digger My favourite colour for everyday wear is currently Dazzling Lilac, which is more of a pink than a lilac in my eyes, with shimmery particles in it. Unfortunately they have discontinued the colour but it may come back in the future you never know. The packaging is a smart slim see through tube which has a blue lid and is a chunky sort of shape although Avon tend to change their packaging from time to time. Previous tubes I have had have come in slim square tubes which were very smart looking and I preferred to the current style. To use it all you need to do is run the sponge applicator that comes in the lid over your lips. I like to pump it once or twice to get a lot of product onto the sponge. I love the smell of this product; it's like a toffee/candyfloss smell although you can't taste it. With my current colour of choice it leaves a glossy pink shimmer over my lips and gives my lips a 'full' pouty look. I wouldn't say it was a super high gloss effect, but glossy enough to be noticeably a lipgloss not just a lipstick. I don't really think a high gloss product would be suitable for me to wear to work anyway. Unfortunately with this product the staying power isn't fantastic and although it will last a couple of hours it will need reapplying after eating etc. I find most lipglosses tend to be this way though, they don't seem to be designed to last long. The current price of this lipgloss is £3.50 which is an offer price in the current catalogue, usual price is £5.00. I think that it is a reasonable price for the product as a tube lasts a long time and looks really nice. Although I have seen cheaper glosses, they tend to be sticky in my experience which I hate. I've also seen glosses go for a lot more than that so Avon Glazewear is a good intermediately priced product. It is only available in Avon catalogues or the Avon website www.uk.avon.com. If you order from an Avon rep, delivery is free but you have to pay for delivery from the website so it's worth seeing if anyone you know is a rep. If you live in the Swansea area and don't know a rep leave a message in my guestbook and I would be more than happy to bring a catalogue to you. Suitability - I think this product is suitable for people of most ages. There are many different colours so you can find one that is suitable for you. Or, perhaps if you want to add a new look to your current favourite lipstick order a clear one and put over the top of your lipstick. Then you get the colour of your lipstick with a nice glossy effect!!! Overall I love this product - it leaves your lips looking gorgeous and there is a nice range of colours. The clear is good for wearing both on its own and on top of normal lipsticks and the colours are nice to wear both day and evening. It is also definitely worth keeping your eyes open as new colours come and go all the time.

                Disadvantages

                Woo Hoo! I love this lipgloss! Being a normal teenager, i am obsessed with Make-up. This is the first ever (and the best) product i bought from the avon catalogue, and let me say, i was very impressed.I ordered the shade "tickled Pink" First thing i noticed when it arrived was the Colour was alot Darker than how it had looked in the catalogue.At first i was quite annoyed, but when i applied it it looked Gorgeous. It comes in a 5ml clear plastic rectangular tube and has a navy blue metal lid.The sponge applicator is useful but i prefer to use a lip brush. I got it on special offer at £3 but it is usually about £4.50 which is still excellent for a lipgloss of such good quality.It keeps your lips really soft and tastes of vannila. The subtle sheen is great for everyday wear and you can top it up with a clear glazewear (also avon) or glitter glaze wear which is just gorgeous for evening.This lipgloss has also lasted me a very long time, at least 3 months and is still pretty full! The only disadvantage is it only lasts about 30-45mins and you keep having to top up it. I strongly recommend this product to anyone! Thanks for reading! xXx

                  I always wear clear lip gloss but this seems to take off my lipstick so I thought I’d try Avon Glazewear for lips as it’s not just a lip-gloss it’s coloured as well so it’s sort of a 2 in 1 lipstick. It comes in 7 shades Gold Digger, Sunkissed, Tickled Pink, Brown Sugar, Rosebud, Mystery Mauve and Naughty Neutral. The shades are always different to what they are in the brochure so I had to gamble on a shade and so I chose ‘Rosebud’, it’s a very dark Redy/Browny colour, it looked a lot lighter in the brochure though that’s why I chose this shade as it looked light so it is a bit to dark for me as I’m very faired skinned on my face that’s why I prefer light colours but this is a gorgeous colour for those of you with darker skin. It leaves your lips glossy and healthy looking, it also has a protection init which helps protect lips against drying and I can say this really dose work and it’s very very easy to apply, it’s just a thin white stick, long and it has a soft spongy tip to apply the gloss to your lips. It’s not at all sticky and it lasts for a few hours at a time so you will need to keep applying it though out the day. It costs £4.00 and is worth every penny, it comes in a 5ml plastic round tube. Avon also do Glazewear Glitter, which is for a sparkling look, this comes in 4 shades Silver Glitz, Red Glitz, Gold Glitz and Violet Glitz. I would recommend Avon Glazewear for lips as it goes on well and is very very glossy.

                    I used to be an avon girl myself. By doing this i had the chance to try out a lot of the products..while doing this i discovered the "glazewear" range. I love the tickled pink shade but i dont use it just for the purpose intended. You see i like to try out using my make up in loads of different ways...ie eyeshadow as blusher...vaseline for shine etc. So i somehow thought of tryin the glazewear liplgloss on my cheeks. This is perhaps the best thing iv ever done. Do you ever look at those models and think "their face looks so fresh and clean and as if they arent wearin make up at all" Well once you have applied your foundation try dabbing a little of the Avon glazewear tickled pink on your cheekbones and blend it in..it works wonders! Even if you are out in a club take this lip gloss with you and you can use it as gloss but also towards end of night when you are looking bit tired just slick a little more onto your cheeks..blend in and you have an instant brightener to your skin! And at roughly 4 quid a time you cant go wrong in using this as lipgloss and cream blusher!

                      It was only after reading two really good opinions on this product that I decided to order this product. I have a lot of make-up but you can never have enough is my philosophy. So, when I had the chance to order the Avon Glazewear lip colour I didn?t hesitate. PACKAGING The packaging for this product is really good and the product comes in a really well designed. It comes in a see through tube with Glazewear written on the side of it. It comes with a sponge applicator and is easily carried around in your handbag. PRODUCT You can use from the Glazewear Glitter or for Lips. I have the Glazewear for Lips which works really well on lips. It gives it a really good ?glossy finish?. It comes in a range of colours I have the Gold Digger and Naughty neutral which are both browny colour. You can order dark reds, pink and quite a few others. There are two kinds of Glazewear products for your lips ? Glazewear Glitter and Glazewear for Lips. Both of these cost £4 from the Avon catalogue, although look out for offers in the brochures. APPLYING It?s very easy to apply and leaves your lips looking really silky and smooth. You do need to re-apply after a couple of hours however to get that nice look on your lips again. But for £3.70 it?s really god value and lasts quite a long time. OVERALL The Avon Glazewear Liquid lip colour is really good on lips. Works better on smooth lips and if like me at times you can get chapped lips it?s best to use it when your lips are nice and smooth because it looks better. You can even get the Glazewear glitter to perk it up a bit but I am more than happy with this product.

                        Disadvantages

                        Looking at my make up collection recently, I decided I needed to stock up on some more lipstick and lip gloss. As usual, I ordered some from the Avon catalogue, including two from the Glazewear range, which I hadn’t tried before. Glazewear comes in long see-through glass tubes, with a dark blue lid and GLAZEWEAR written in dark blue. It is a screw-top lid with a wand and sponge applicator on the end. Each tube contains 5ml, which doesn’t sound much, but seems to last quite a long time. I also found that these were easier to find in my tapestry bag (I don’t do handbags – think Mary Poppins and you’re close!!), as the regular sized lipsticks tend to get lost amongst everything else I keep there. These are thin, so don’t take up much room but being longer, it seems easier to find them! The lids are nice and secure too, being twist-top ones, as they seem less likely to come off than the usual ones, so your lipstick doesn’t get damaged. I hate it when the top comes off and you get squashed, useless lipstick mashed up at the bottom of the bag! There are two kinds of Glazewear products for your lips – Glazewear Glitter and Glazewear for Lips. Both of these cost £4 from the Avon catalogue, although look out for offers in the brochures. Glazewear Glitter can be used on its own as a lip gloss or over any lipstick, to add a bit of glitter over the colour. It is available in four colours – Silver Glitz, Red Glitz, Gold Glitz and Violet Glitz. I bought Silver Glitz, which is stunning! It feels soft and silky on your lips, but not sticky. It is quite a subtle effect, you’ll need a couple of coats of it if you want to be as glittery as Big Brother’s Helen! With just one coat of Glazewear Glitter, it catches the light and sparkles very prettily. I love this stuff and so does my eleven year old daughter, so they would make an ideal gift for any young girls into make-up too. It even tastes nice! Glazewear for Lips offers ‘a super-glossy finish’ and comes in seven different shades – Gold Digger (golden brown kind of colour), Sunkissed (red-brown), Brown Sugar (brown), Rosebud (dark red), Mystery Mauve (purple-red), Naughty Neutral (looks dark brown to me!) and Tickled Pink (pink-brown). I bought Tickled Pink, which looks a bit darker than in the brochure, definitely more brown than pink in the bottle. It does look paler once it is on your lips though. I found the sponge applicators rather small and tricky to use. It seems to take longer to apply than a regular lipstick, but looks good once it is on. I did have to rub it in though to get an even effect. Once again, it tastes nice and is smooth and silky, though not greasy at all. I would definitely buy these products again and would be happy to try other colours available too. It seems a very good quality product. The Glazewear Glitter is definitely my favourite, but I was impressed with both of them and combined, they look great. I think they are both worth the money as well, because the colours are pretty and the effects are very good. You will need to re-apply them after a few hours, so I found its longevity comparable to other lipsticks and lip glosses I have used before. It passes the kissing test too, with most of it staying on my lips – although there was an alluring speck of glitter just under his moustache!!

                          As the song says "...it's in his kiss..." Well with Avon's 'Glazewear for Lips' "it's in your kiss!" So why not treat yourself to lavish lips? I suppose you are now wondering what I am about to say! Well, I think 'Glazewear for Lips' is currently Avon's most popular lip colour product and it is ideal for making your lips very kissable. It comes in a variety of colours catering for all skin tones. It is a versatile and yet excellent value for money. I would advise looking to buy this product particually with Valentine's Day only a few weeks away. 'Glazewear for Lips' provides a coating to the lips, which is extremely shiny. This lip covering goes on smoothly and yet has the added benefit of helping to protect the lips from dry at the same time. 'Glazewear for Lips' comes not as a standard lipstick but in a wand, a bit like a mascara stick. The wand, a giant sponge-like cotton bud, is the applicator used for applying the lipstick to the lips. **Colours** Avon's 'Glazewear for Lips' comes in a variety of shades including Brown Sugar, Gold Digger, Mystery Mauve, Naughty Neutral, Rosebud, Sunkissed and Tickled Pink. For jazzing up your look for a party, why not try Avon 'Glazewear Glitter'. This Glazewear product comes in four shades Gold Glitz, Red Glitz, Silver Glitz and Violet Glitz. They can be used on their own or in conjunction with other Avon lip products. **Application** 1) Apply the Glazewear across the lips. 2) Blot with a tissue. 3) Apply a second coat to fix the first coat. **Cost** Avon 'Glazewear for Lips' £4.00 for 5mls Avon 'Glazewear Glitter' £4.50 for 5mls I find that a container lasts around four months, working out at about a pound a month. Excellent value for money, which I am sure you will agree. <br>Then there is the Avon "no quibble" guarantee. Simply return this product to your Avon representative for a full money back refund, even if you have used some of it, if you have a problem or just do not like it! **For more information** Address: Avon Cosmetics Limited Earlstree Road Corby Northants NN117 4AZ Telephone number: 0845 345 8444 Website: www.avon.uk.com

                            Avon have produced a new range of lip gloss named "Glazewear Glitter". The result is a superbly shiny gloss which gives lips a fantastic shimmer, and is available in a choice of four colours, each containing 5ml: - "Gold Glitz", "Silver Glitz", Violet Glitz" and "Red Glitz". I personally use "gold glitz" which contains a high concentration of iridescent gold glitter suspended in a lightweight gloss, making it perfect for adding extra shine to your usual lipstick, or for use on its own for more subtle look. The precision wand makes for easy application, although remember to clean it if using over the top of lipstick, otherwise the remaining gloss in the tube will become discoloured. In conclusion, this is a great product available at a fraction of the price of similar products available on the market.
