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: Maybelline
Range: Color Sensational Lip Color
Shades: Rosy Dream, Juicy Bubble Gum, Juicy Pink, Mauve Diamonds, Sugar Plum
Swatched by yours truly: Akisa

  • Maybelline have added 10 new shades to the Color Sensational range, which I’ve spread over 3 posts.  This post is part 2 of 3, and is all about pinks & mauves.
  • The new shades are translucent & lightweight, but feature the signature nourishing feel.
  • Tastes fruity & juicy, reminds me of fruit chews like Starbursts candy. One of the YUMMIEST lipsticks I’ve tasted to date.
  • Verdict: Props to ”Juicy Bubble Gum” – a blue pink shade that’s just blue enough to look like candy pink but not too blue that it clashes against neutral/warm skintones. For something more subdued, “Juicy Pink” is a modest & wearable everyday pink.

Brand: SAX Cosmetics
Range: Lipgloss
Shades: Sweet Pea & Mink
Swatched by yours truly: akisa

  • SAX Cosmetics is an Australian family business founded in 1995, and is the Pharmacy Guild of Australia’s preferred cosmetic brand. This endorsement recognises that SAX cosmetics provide quality, is well presented and provide excellent value to customers
  • Silky, moisturising infused with antioxidants (Vitamin E), avocado oil, beeswax, jojoba oil and silk powder that give a light silky finish that retains moisture.
  • Available in 6 shades, I was offered to try Sweet Pea (sheer shimmer) & Mink (mauve).
  • The shades are subtle, but the texture envelopes your lips in a really smooth high quality formula – not at all what you’d expect for a gloss that costs only $12.95!
  • Comes with a slim doe wand applicator (not pictured)
  • Verdict: Although the shades are a little muted, I was truly taken aback by the quality of this lipgloss & the silky smooth texture is worth checking it out.  Within the 6-shade range there is also Peony, Coral, Cherry & Taupe.  Tine (Beautyholics Anonymous) swatched Coral here.

  

RRP: $12.95 AUD
Available at selected pharmacies & stockists.
