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: Chantecaille
Range: Lip Chic
Shade: China Rose
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • Chantecaille Lip Chic is a hybrid lipstick that combines the high shine and plumping effects of a gloss, with the rich coverage of a lipstick.
  • The sensation when you apply it is UNLIKE anything I have ever tried – THE MOST buttery soft texture that immediately smoothes and firms the lips as you glide it across.
  • Leaves lips feeling very plush, comfortable and glossy.  They feel like they’re dressed in a gloss-like formula, but it’s so thin that it just appears shiny and smooth and keeps lips moisturised the entire day until you wipe it off completely.
  • The colour is fairly long lasting considering it’s a sheer lipstick, and I find myself applying it around 3 times a day (morning, after lunch and again in the afternoon for extra moisture)
  • Verdict: This is a staple in my work makeup bag as my lips get easily parched in air conditioning, and it gives my lips an instant moisturised pick-me-up. I love that I don’t need a brush or pencil to apply this “my lips but better” colour, as I often only have a minute or two to touch up in between meetings.   I’ve used so much already that if I keep going at this rate I’ll need to re-purchase soon, and that’s a first in my 4 and half years of blogging.  In other words – holy grail stuff.

Brand: The Body Shop
Range:  Color Crush Lipsticks
Shades: 101 (Red Siren), 105 (Coral Cutie), 205 (Passionate Pink), 210 (Sweetheart Pink), 215 (Innocent Pink), 240 (Damson in Distress), 330 (Spice Things Up)
Swatched by yours truly: Yishan

  • The Body Shop Color Crush Lipsticks (which are replacing the Colourglide range) are 100% cruelty free and 100% vegetarian, formulated with nurturing cherry seed oil and Community Fair Trade marula oil.
  • Packed with pigment & moisture yet light in weight, they’re not only creamy and apply smoothly but the pigments also stain the lips. Also has a subtle rose scent
  • Available in 23 shades.  I swatched only 5 out of 7 shades as the last 2 pink shades on the right were too pale for my lip tone.
  • Verdict: Highly pigmented lipsticks often come with a “high grip” formula, but The Body Shop Color Crush Lipsticks are incredibly lightweight and a dream to apply, softening lips with moisture. I’m loving the colours and formula of this range more so than similar comparisons such as Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids Lip Color, as they’re vibrant without looking took punchy and make my lips look smooth and moisturised. Give it a go if you’re in the mood for colour!
