Mini Avon Haul!

After posting about my Avon Glazewear lipstick in Coral Bliss last week, I couldn't resist placing an order for some more, however the swatches on the website are absolutely awful (They all look the same!) so I decided to simply order the whole line.

This sounds rather extravagant but considering there are only five colours in the line, and the lipsticks are on sale for just £3 each, I thought I might as well!

Left-right: Coral Bliss, Sunset, Apricot, Nectar, Peach Silk

So if any of you are thinking of purchasing one of these lipsticks... this post might help (as it actually has decent swatches!)

Left-right: Coral Bliss, Sunset, Apricot, Nectar, Peach Silk

The colours are quite sheer and glossy compared to traditional lipstick. I'd say they are the perfect halfway point between lipstick and gloss, and the packaging is so chic and pretty in a slim rose gold tube. There isn't the best range in colours, but my personal favourites are Coral Bliss, Sunset and Peach Silk. Nectar is a bit of a 'nothing' colour, and Apricot is a little more brown than I would normally go for, so I gave it to my mum (who loves it!)
 Coral Bliss
 Sunset
 Apricot
 Nectar
 Peach Silk

The more I use these, the more convinced I am that they are some of the best quality, great value for money lip products out there... love them!

On a side note, it seems to me that the names are are totally mismatched to the colours? 'Sunset' is more coral than 'Coral Bliss', 'Apricot' is not an apricot shade at all and would be more akin to the name 'Sunset'... very confusing!


Since buying these, the price has been increased to £3.50, but I still think they are fab.

What do you think girls? Will you be ordering any of these? Any favourites?

  5. I like the sheerness & glossiness but the colours look sooooo similar, I would have liked to have seen a broader colour spectrum xoxo

  6. I may have the change my long-standing opinion of Avon after seeing this. They look amazing! The colour range isn't fantastic though; I would prefer more pinks and nudes.. but the formulation looks amazing :)

  10. I love Avon! They are so underestimated sometimes but the quality is really good. We need to do a swap or something because some AVON products (like these lipsticks) I can't get here!

  12. I really wish when websites did their own swatches they put the product on the lip or eye...or whatever area the product was intended to be used on!! Then you could actually tell what it looks like!

  17. I do find avon are a little hit and miss with their products, and I understand what you mean about the swatches being off target..I bought a lipstick from there a while ago that I thought was going to be a lovely coral shade and it turned out to be a brown colour!xx
