Avon Glazewear Liquid Lip Colour
Advantages: Provide moisturisation and shine.
Disadvantages: Iced Pink shade is a bit dated.
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.
Summary: Great product overall, can compete with more expensive brands.
