AVON Shine Attract Lipsticks

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: Jane Iredale
Range: Chocoholicks Lip Palette (Limited Edition)
Shades: Blood Orange, Espresso, Very Berry, Chilli Pepper
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • A limited edition lip palette compact with four chocolate-y shades for day and night, complete with a retractable gold lip brush
  • The texture of these glosses are hydrating, high shine and surprisingly pigmented and shimmery at the same time.
  • “Blood Orange” is a shimmery copper gloss with a dark chocolate flavour
  • “Espresso” is a sultry brown gloss with a rich aroma of mocha (why didn’t they just name it mocha?)
  • “Very Berry” is a plum gloss and tastes of luscious berries dipped in chocolate.
  • “Chilli Pepper” is a warm red gloss that transformed into a berry red on me!  Tastes like chilli chocolate, leaving lips a little tingly from the spices.
  • Verdict: A fun lip palette for chocolate lovers, but especially so if you love warm lip colours.  For the devoted plum lippie lover, the shade Very Berry alone is worth trying this palette out.  Trust me – this shade is one of a kind!
(L-R): Blood Orange, Espresso, Very Berry, Chilli Pepper
I was most impressed with Very Berry – it’s definitely one of a kind.
The closest dupe I can think of is by mixing MAC Lipstick in ‘Riveting Rose‘ and Lipglass ‘Indigo Pink‘ together.
RRP: $50 AUD
Available at Adore Beauty.

MAC Lipglass – Secret Identity

Brand: MAC
Range: Lipglass
Shade: Secret Identity (Wonder Woman Collection – 2011)
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • The Wonder Woman lipglasses come in 4 limited edition shades and feature the iconic Wonder Woman logo and colour theme on its packaging.
  • This lipglass is jumbo sized from top to toe, including a huge wand recommended for those with medium to full lips.
  • Secret Identity is a “mid tone copper with soft pearl” and looks best when a full layer is applied, otherwise it can look uneven.
  • Verdict: This shade is obviously too warm for my skin tone but the lovely pigmented, pearl high shine finish is worth checking out!
Towering over MAC Viva Glam Gaga 2 Lipglass…
Check out the size of the wand!!
 
The formula can slide & I expect it’s noticeable only if your skintone is much paler than the shade. Just make sure you apply an even layer for even coverage.
