What is your ideal lip product, the kind that you will actually use everyday? Many of us love shine, moisture, and beautiful color on our lips. That kind of effect usually involves three layers of product to pull off - balm, lipstick, then gloss. However, with the new Avon Shine Attract Lipstick, you can skip all of that and just go straight to pretty lips!
Before I proceed with my glowing review, lemme just say that these lipsticks are not the kind you expect to stay on all day. They dry up on the lips within three hours, although the bolder colors leave a nice stain. If you're okay with re-applying (like me) then I think you'll love this. But if not, there are other equally affordable brands that can give you better lasting power.
What I do love about these lipsticks is the fact thay they give me a nice, glossy color while moisturizing my lips at the same time. They also don't feel like anything once you have them on. Well okay, at most they feel like a thin, slinky lip balm. The moisture lasts until it dries, around three hours from application.
Some people may be discouraged that, upon getting the product, they find out that they're not as pigmented or even as normal lipsticks. So, I made a video on how to apply it correctly! WATCH.
Done? Now here are the swatches. I don't have all the colors (some of the colors I got in the press kit were the same) but here are seven shades from the 10-lipstick collection. :D
Guava is a nudish, slightly pink shade that's peachy! Think J.Lo lips.
Caressing Coral is just okay. It's a reddish coral shade.
Happy Pink is as pretty as the name. It's a sheer pink that you can build up into the color above.
Cherry Pie is a favorite of mine. It's a hot pink-red combo, just perfect for summer.
Passionate Red is the flagship color of this collection. It's what Anne Curtis is wearing! It can look sheer if you want (see the video) but it can also be super red like Anne's lip. It's not completely opaque though, but I love it just the same!
Orchid is another favorite of mine. It's a purple shade that's stunning on Pinay skin. Do try it!
Fever is a deeper, vampier red than Passionate Red. It's definitely an evening color.
So there you have it! The Avon Shine Attract Lipsticks are pretty good in terms of texture and color. They're perfect as everyday lipsticks that you just throw on without overthinking. ;)
Let me know what you think of these lipsticks, alright! What are you getting?
