I covered this on Girl Gloss awhile back as well, so if you saw the photos there, it might feel a bit like Deja Vu. I wanted readers here to be sure to see them too! Avon sent me their Glazewear lip gloss line, which was new to me. I do like Avon quite a bit, but since the days of the Avon representative coming door to door are pretty much long gone, I sometimes tend to forget about them. These lip glosses made me realize that I really should pay more attention!
Glazewear is available in three styles, all with sponge applicators: Intense, Shine, and Sparkle. Each comes with five shades, and there is a clear Glazewear available as well—giving 16 total glosses. The pigment in the intense shades are outstanding. The Shine shades are also vry well pigmented. Sparkle shades are on the sheer side, yet they too still have a fair amount of pigment that they couple with sparkly dazzle. None are sticky, and all are unflavored. The lip glosses provide moisture and feel nice in the lips.
Below are Avon Glazewear swatches of all 15 tinted shades. These are in the same order as shown as in the box that is pictured above. First shown 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.
Below are swatches of the sparkle shades: Mocha Latte, Rave, Apple Cinnamon, Mirage, Dazzling Diamond.
As you can see, the pigment is good throughout. I recommend the gold and white sparkle glosses for wear over a long wearing lip liner such as one of the lovely MAC lip pencils (link is to previous review), or over lipstain or lipstick. The clear works well over lipstain or other lip color as well.
Overall, this is a nice line of lip gloss. Best yet, these normally run at a very affordable $6, and are also sometimes found on sale for as low at $1.99. Nice!
