Shiny Goodness! Avon Glazewear Lip Gloss and Swatches

Avon sent me a set of their Glazewear lip glosses to test. Surprisingly, I had not tried Avon Glazewear before, but I have always liked the MARK lip glosses. According to Avon, Glazewear is the number one lip gloss in the U.S, although I have no idea how lip gloss popularity for that was measured. Regardless, they are quite nice glosses, and I give them a big thumbs up.

Glazewear comes in three types: Intense, Shine, and Sparkle. Each type has five shades to choose from and there is also a clear Glazewear available, giving 16 options total. The intense shades are very well pigmented. Shine shades do have additional shine, but they are also almost as well pigmented as the intense shades. The sparkle shades are quite dazzling and are slightly more on the sheer side, yet still have decent pigment to them. None of the Avon Glazewear glosses are sticky. They are unflavored, and feel comfortable and moisturizing. All of the glosses use sponge applicators.

One benefit to having the whole set is the ability to take complete swatches, so below are all 15 tinted shades of Avon Glazewear. These are also in the same order as shown as in the box above.  First up are the Intense and shine shades. From left to right: (Intense shades) Crimson, Cherry Liqueur, Intense Plum, Brown Sugar, Sweet Maple (Shine Shades) Mauve Movement, Darling Pink, Tickled Pink, Iced Pink, Island Glow.

Here are the Avon lip gloss swatches for the sparkle shades: Mocha Latte, Rave, Apple Cinnamon, Mirage, Dazzling Diamond.

As you can see, the pigment is good throughout the line. I particularly like the gold and white sparkle glosses for wear over a long wear lip liner such as Makeup Forever Lip Pencil (I still need to review this wonderful liner) or one of the lovely MAC lip pencils (link is to previous review), or try it over lipstick. I have been using the clear over lipstick as well.

Overall, this is a quality line. As a bonus,these normally run at a very affordable $6, and are also sometimes placed on sale for as low at $1.99.

MAC Viva Glam Swatches, Lady Gaga and Cyndi Lauper

All proceeds from sales of MAC cosmetics Viva Glam go to AIDS charities through the MAC AIDS Fund. This year, the MAC Viva Glam spokeswomen are Lady Gaga and Cyndi Lauper. Great choices in my opinion! Also this year, the lip shades are not deep reds, unlike many past years.

The new VIVA GLAM collection has two lipsticks – Viva Glam Cyndi (Light Coral Red) and Viva Glam Gaga (Light Blue Pink), as well as corresponding makeup bags.

Both MAC Viva Glam shades are quite nice. For the pink lovers, the Lady Gaga is a pretty, but still a bit vibrant light pink. the Cyndi Lauper Viva Glam shade is my favorite though. It is a nice coral red that gives a sheer neutral  to warm rosy red look. It lean toward coral, but not as much as the description would make it seem.

Below are swatches of the two shades. It is a total coincidence that they happened to perfectly match my Hello Kitty Band-Aid. Yes, I really do wear Hello Kitty Band-Aids (blush)!

I suspect that I will be wearing the Cyndi Lauper Viva Glam shade quite a bit this spring.
