Hello from the Project Vanity team! Thanks for dropping by.

Avon Shine Attract Event with Anne Curtis

Anne Curtis is the hottest celebrity right now. After seeing her in person last week, I understand why! Up close, she looks exactly like she does on celluloid and print - drop-dead gorgeous, with an ultra-slim bod. Someone commented that she looks like a live Barbie doll and I gotta say that's not too far off the mark! #starstruck

Anne's looks aside, I really appreciated that she seems genuinely happy and excited to be there. It seems to be a good fit, Avon lipsticks and Anne Curtis. Anne is famous for her trademark red shiny lips while Avon makes some of the best lipsticks around (at least for me) - call it destiny, predetermination, natural selection!

So, what's the deal with the Avon Shine Attract Lipsticks? Basically, it's opaque lip color wrapped around a shiny gel gloss slash balm. We've seen lipsticks that have lip balms and/or gloss INSIDE a lipstick coating, but I think it's the first time that the opposite has been released.

I've been using these since I got it and I must say, I love the formula! It feels super lightweight on the lips and does give that shine. If you're a girl who likes applying balm, then lipstick, then lip gloss to get that shiny, moisturized finish on your lips, then this is a 3-in-1 product that I think you'll love.

However, it does have its drawbacks. It can be a challenge to apply evenly because of its form. It's also not as opaque and as long lasting as normal lipsticks. I do have a technique to make it look more pigmented, but that's a tip for another post, along with the complete swatches of the Shine Attract lippies. ;)

And that's it for now. The Shine Attract lipsticks will be available starting on May 1 from your favorite Avon ladies, so the wait is not too long. I'll be sure to post the swatches before they are released! ;) In the meantime, do let me know what you think of these lipsticks - are you intrigued, or will you pass?
