Word On Avon True Color Lip Glow Lip Gloss

Today’s Lip of the Week is lots of lips!  Avon has a new product release, its newest lip gloss, Lip Glow!  It comes in 21 shades, some similar to Avon’s most popular Glazewear shades, some shades completley brand new.  I picked out 5 shades to try and I’ve been wearing them non-stop.

Avon True Color Lip Glow Lip Gloss

Avon True Color Lip Glow Lip Gloss

Word on Lip Glow:  Glow is the new gloss. Avon True Color Lip Glow Lip Gloss has more shine, more moisturization, more color* and zero stickiness. It’s formulated with chia seed and rose hip oils to help nourish and moisturize for soft, supple lips. .27 fl. oz.

BENEFITS

• Highly-saturated shades
• Long-lasting shine
• Comfortable, creamy feel
• Paraben-free

TO USE

Smooth onto lips.

Word of Alicia:  Overall I highly enjoy the formula.  It is moisturizing and not sticky, as promised.  It feels luxe and full not slimy or slippery.  You can really tell its a lip oil full of benefits.  As far as color options, I think there’s somethign for everyone for every occasion.  In the below pictures you can tell it was a windy day while taking these pics, my hair DID NOT STICK to my lip glow, that alone should be a reason to give it a go haha.

Avon True Color Lip Glow in Lit

Avon True Color Lip Glow in Lit

LIT:  The only creme (opaque) color in my collection.  Color payoff is really strong and leaves behind a nice lip stain as it wears off.  If you are a liquid lipstick fan this would be a good option for you.

Avon True Color Lip Glow in Estrella

Avon True Color Lip Glow in Estrella

ESTRELLA:  This is probably my favorite from the bunch.  Its just such a flattering shade on me that can be worn year round for any occasion.  For being a shimmer shade (sheer) it has a good color payoff and is extremely similar to my favorite Avon True Color Lip Balm in Plum Passion.

Avon True Color Lip Glow in Lighthouse

Avon True Color Lip Glow in Lighthouse

LIGHTHOUSE:  This shade is a replacement for Glazewear Mocha Latte.  I picked this because a fellow rep, Lisa Scola, is always spreading her love for Mocha Latte Glazewear, which also is one of our biggest sellers.  I definitely was not disappointed by this neutral.  Just an easy to wear brown towned sheer.

Avon True Color Lip Glow in Aura

Avon True Color Lip Glow in Aura

AURA:  This is another shimmer (sheer) shade with a pink tone, which, as an everyday shade, I think is perfect.  I’ve been wearing this a lot lately just because it goes with every makeup look.  Simple, easy and comfortable.  This is a safe shade if you want to try the Lip Glows but not sure what color to pick.

Avon True Color Lip Glow in Luna

Avon True Color Lip Glow in Luna

LUNA:  Luna is a sleep shade, a surprising stunner that’s super unique.  It’s also unexpectedly selling out.  I picked this one because I wanted to test it out see if it would be a good replacement for a shade my sister is constantly hunting for.   This one wears kind of like a lilac milkshake nude.  It’s also one that works really well layerd over other shades, lipstick or even over a little concealer for a more bolder nude lip.  It almost looks grey toned in these pics, but its a light purple and a shimmer (sheer) formula.

I really like these Lip Glows, super easy to wear.  For years I’ve been pretty exclusive to lipstick and balm so getting back in the lip gloss game is a fun change.  Even better, these are only $5.99 at intro price at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger  That price is a steal considering lip oils from other brands are easily in the $15 to $25 range.  Plus today only, there’s a promo code for FREE SHIPPING on $25 a perfect time to pick up some makeup items like these Lip Glows.  Use promo code HELLOSUMMER at my eBoutique.

Word Of Alicia:  

This Avon True Color SuperExtend Precise Liquid Liner in black has been my #1 favorite liquid liner since they discontinued my long time mark. favorite.  What I like about this formula is its nice and opaque, goes on really smooth and lasts all day.  I can get expert precision with the shape and has a great grip.  More importantly, I can get that wing every time… and if its not awesome I can dab the felt tip to fill in, or thicker.  This applies to all 3 shades.

New Shades Like Hunter Green

New Shades Like Hunter Green!

My review on the colors themselves, black is an obvious win.  Sapphire Blue is really great not too dark not to bright, super wearable for day or night and still gives that definition you want from an eyeliner look.  Hunter Green isn’t as vibrant as I was hoping for.  It still looks good on, but I go into knowing its more of a softer look.  I also love that they put the color on the ends so you can easily determine which pen is what color!

Colored Ends For Easy Indexing

Colored Ends For Easy Indexing

Most excellent eyeliner but most horrible cap design.  What I don’t like about these eyeliners are how easy it is for the caps to come off.  I can’t tell you how many times in my makeup bag the cap comes off and it gets all over my hand when I reach in, plus when I loose the cap it dries out quicker.  That is why I keep these in a cup with my brushes to avoid cap loss.  My only other complaint is the amount of product.  Maybe its because I wear this everyday but I go through these so quick.  I usually buy two at a time because I know I’ll use one up before I order again.  Which isn’t to big of a deal because they are usually on sale for $4.99 or buy one get one deal, and even with the original price of $8 it is still a great price for a great product.  Overall, even with the poor cap design, these are still my favorite eyeliners.  Black on heavy repeat and now sapphire blue as well, hunter green as a random choice when I want something different.

Word Of Alicia:  I think this limited edition scent couldn’t of come at a better time, it’s that perfect mix of winter and pre-spring in my opinion.  I like that’s its a little sweet, a little warm and a little fresh.  I think the pink sugar crystals are the top note and as it settles the strawberry and peach linger.  As the days grow longer we want to lighten and brighten and this fragrance does exactly that.  As far as formula goes you know that Whipped Up Body Butter is my absolute favorite!  My skin gets so dry and itchy in the winter and this severely helps that.  As far as the hand cream goes a little goes a long way, use too much and you can get a little tacky.  The hand cream is 3.4 fl oz so that’s a pretty big tube that will last you a long time and for only $6 that’s the best bang for your buck.

Word Of Alicia:  I absolutely am obsessed.  When I first smelled the rub your wrist here sample in the book I was like eh, but once I received the bottle and actually put it on I was like wow this is nice!  It’s not something I would typically pick out, it’s warm and a little more sophisticated, but the floral notes are so so so good.  It definitely is a year round scent but switching to this for fall seemed right with a cozier scent.  I really love the packaging too.  It’s just fun!  Wearing this scent I just feel more put together and sensual, and honestly I just love smelling it!  I don’t think the staying power is amazing unless you layer the lotion and shower gel with it, but I don’t mind reapplying mid day because I just LOVE that top note!

WORD ON THE LOOK:  I’m a sucker for pretty packaging and good advertisement images, and this one did not disappoint.  Every year they do a little extra effort on the package design.  This year the pretty sunset colors and image really captures the warmth of the scent.  It really smells like an Hawaiian sunset!  I love the palm leafs too and that stunning model in the stunning pink dress.  They had me at Aloha!

WORD OF ALICIA:  I can’t lie, I’m a little disspointed they didn’t do a true perfume because I LOVE THIS ONE SOOOO MUCH!  The body spray is nice, it lasts a good amount of time, it’s refreshing but I would of loved to layer it with a true perfume and I totally would of bought multiples.  The whole line is wonderful, typical of mark bath and body.  If you haven’t tried them the body cream is so rich and wonderful and not too greasy and the shower gel is moisturizing.  They work so well layered together you’re going to want the whole line, but my top pick is the Shimmering Moisture Gel.  Its lightweight moisturizing gel with really great fragrance pay off.  The shimmer is sun kissed and it works WONDERS as an after sun.  I’ll be stocking up on this for sure.
