Brand: Avon
Range: Ultra Glazewear Lip Gloss
Shades: Fiery Red, Mauve Movement, Pink Watermelon, Nude, Tangerine Gleam, Intense Plum, Nude Muse, Tickled Pink
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • Avon Ultra Glazewear Lip Glosses are a moisturising gloss that has a soft texture that doesn’t feel sticky or tacky.
  • Sculpts lips into a high shine lacquer finish won’t feather or bleed
  • Available in 9 shades – 8 of which are featured here, and the other shade is Clear (not pictured).
  • Very mild scent that reminds me of cupcakes.
  • Verdict: Some shades are sheerer than others, with the most pigmented ones being Intense Plum, Fiery Red and Tangerine Plum.  My favourites are Mauve Movement (a mauve MLBB shade) and Pink Watermelon (sheer pink with shimmers).  For just $14.99 these are very reasonably priced for their quality, and are versatile to be worn both on their own or layered over lipstick for a dimensional finish.

Brand: AVON
Range: Shine Attract Lipstick
Shades: Natural Glow, Rose Pink, Happy Pink, Mysterious Mauve, Plum Berry, Caressing Coral, Passionate Red, Copper Connection
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • Sheer lip colour surrounded by a moisturising clear gel that coats the lips with a subtle silky shine.
  • Buildable coverage, moderate in hydration, and gives lips a natural flush of colour
  • Whilst the moisturising gel creates a shiny finish initially, it also absorbs quickly leaving your lips softened with a stained effect.
  • You can either apply directly from the tube for a stained look, use fingers to soften the tint or use a lip brush for precise application, especially along the lip line.
  • Verdict: My favourite shades are Plum Berry and Passionate Red as the blue tones in these shades brighten my complexion the most, and it’s not easy to find plums and cherry reds in soft hues that are wearable everyday.  Passionate Red is also an extremely low maintenance sheer red that won’t slide or smear on your lips.

Comes in silver packaging with a clear plastic cap (not pictured)

Because of the gel surrounding the colour core, I had to use a lip brush to create a precise lip line.
You can also use your fingers, or if you’re brave – apply placing the colour core along your lip line.

The swatches are slim because the pigment is concentrated in the centre of the tube.


RRP: $22.99 AUD

Brand: AVON
Range: Ultra Color Rich Pink Crystals Lipstick
Shades: Courage, Faith, Passion, Honesty & Hope
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • Kiss goodbye to breast cancer, with Avon’s Ultra Color Rich Pink Crystals Lipstick – a 5 shade range of shimmery lipsticks with names that represent the plight of thousands of women living with breast cancer.
  • $1 from every Avon Ultra Color Rich Pink Crystals Lipstick sold will be donated to Avon’s Breast Cancer Crusade, which has been running for 20 years
  • Funds raised are donated to the Australia & New Zealand Breast Cancer Trials Group, the YWCA Encore Program and New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation.
  • Highly moisturising, richly pigmented with iridescent particles and a lustrous finish.   The shimmers are particularly noticeable in “Courage” and “Honesty” which give a dazzling effect.
  • Verdict: Support the cause by buying a lipstick and help save lives.  Highly impressed by the moisturising properties, but the shimmers make this an occasional lipstick instead of everyday use.  Interestingly this has the same plant scent as Clarins mineral skincare! My top picks are “Courage” (dazzling red), “Honesty” (dazzling ruby) and “Hope” (lustrous peach).

Brand: Avon
Range: Smooth Minerals Lip Tint
Shades: Smooth Nude, Smooth Pink, Smooth Berry
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • Very subtle sheer lip tint with the slightest hint of shimmer
  • Made with naturally derived mineral complex, nourishing emollients & vitamins
  • In Australia this is available in the 3 shades swatched. In US there are more shades such as “Smooth Raisin”.
  • Verdict: Lip tints are great for those who say they don’t like wearing lipstick but secretly want to wear it when they see others pull it off.  But these tints don’t tick my boxes as the shades are too sheer and not particularly flattering on me for me to justify purchasing.

Indian Girl says...I have a lot of mauve tones in my lips naturally so the lipstick comes off looking a lot more fuchsia on me. But if you have pale lips or lips with more red in it , this one will turn into a pretty pink.
