Avon Glazewear Lip Colour

Here I go again, after lunch today I decided that I wanted to go check out Avon, Elisa and Kern agreed and off we went. It's a little weird as to why, I've never bought any cosmetics from Avon before and I'm really not sure why I even wanted to go there. Perhaps the temptation of Avon Glazewear Lip Colour still lingers on my head even after so many months. I should never have bought the catalog home and put them in the toilet. I kept flipping through it whenever I'm in the toilet. That must be it!

Inside the Avon store, surrounded by empty display cases and ugly deco, sat two ladies on the counter. I flipped through the catalog and found what I was so called searching for.


Full-color, high-shine gloss. Full coverage, lightweight feel. Moisturizing formula with vitamins A, C and E. Precision doe-foot applicator. .15 oz. net wt.

The Glazewear Lip Colour were selling for RM21.90 each! I gasp, I could have swore they were only RM18.90 each just a few months ago and they even had the buy 2 for only RM30 promotion. At a closer look, it was RM21.90 each but it was buy one FREE one. So it's actually just about RM 10.95 for one! Whee!



They were trying to clear stock I guess since the was only 4 colours left; Tickled Pink, Darling Pink, Honey and Peach Fizz.

With E's help, I chosed out Darling Pink (medium pink with gold) and Peach Fizz (Peachy Orange with Shimmer). It has a hint of Vanilla scent and the colours are actually pretty sheer. Both colours I got was pretty natural and I initially thought it didn't look glossy enough. But the staying power was pretty okay and it didn't flake off after a while so I was happy with that. I hate nothing more than lipglosses that 'balls' up and flakes off after a while and my itchy hands won't be able to stop rubbing them.

So far I have no complains, sure the packaging ain't all that pretty compared to Chanel or Dior's but it's really for a fraction of their price. The colours isn't all overly shimmery or glittery (at least not the ones I got) so I'll be able to use them during work without anyone staring non-stop at my lips. Not to mention, they are so bloody cheap.

In the end, the bill came out to RM19.70 for both. Imagine that, RM9.85 for one! I went out of the door grinning like an idiot.

Since it's my first time using these, I do hope to hear other reviews from others if you have bought this before.



Due to my wonderful laptop, I can not differentiate the colours between the 2 pictures, if it's peachy, it's probably Peach Fizz, if it's pinkish, it's Darling Pink. I'm so sorry!

EDIT: JeanJean asked how long they last and whether they dry out on your lips in a few hours. My answer is they last for as long as you don't lick them off. I need to consistently re-apply my lipgloss while in the office cause I like to eat so I have a tendency to wipe off my lipgloss before I eat or something so initially I wasn't able to tell how long they lasted for.

Came home
and fell asleep on my bed the instant my head touched the pillow, full make up on. Ugh. When I woke up, my lipgloss was still on and it still felt moisturising and suprisingly has not dried up or flaked off. It did feel mildly sticky but apart from that, there wasn't any complains.

I hope you dad will get well soon! Do keep us updated about him :D

I now wonder if all your over-spending was because you were stressed out about your dad >.>;;

Cantiknyer your lips... The lip gloss looks really moisturising.I wonder if the gloss will dry out on your lips after a few hours. How's the long does the lip gloss lasts ? Both colour suits your lips, really.
