Today I’m reviewing a gorgeous peachy red lipstick from Avon’s Glazewear Silky Shine Lipstick – shade Apricot.
Price : Rs 375 for 1.8 g
What Avon says about the Product :
Glossy vibrant lip colour that last for hours*, and has the high shine of a lipgloss. Sweetened with a peachy flavour, has a slimline design which is ideal for handbags.
My take on the Product
The lipstick comes in a gorgeous slim rose gold metallic packaging. The bullet is encased in a black plastic tube inside. The packaging is sturdy, closes with a click and is very handy for travel. I love the color of the packaging as well – very unique!
The lipstick has a lovely buttery smooth texture. It has a very glossy finish and a medium buildable coverage. The formula feels smooth, hydrating and gel like on the lips but is not slippery. It doesn’t sit into the lip lines or bleed. I love how comfortable it looks. The glossy finish gives a luscious, plumped look to the lips which is very flattering! Despite being quite buttery, it doesn’t vanish off the lips quickly. When layered properly (3-4 swipes), it stays a good 4 hours including light snacks/drinks. When worn with a single swipe however, it might wear off in 2-2.5 hours. Overall, the formula is really beautiful and a delight to use! The only con is that the quantity is pretty less. That combined with its buttery texture, you are likely to finish up the lipstick pretty soon.
The shade Apricot is true to its name – a gorgeous apricot peach shade with a hint of red. The color is quite soft and gives a very fresh yet understated look to the face. The shade contains shimmer which is minuscule and non-gritty. It doesn’t settle into lines or migrate beyond the lip line either. The shade would be flattering across skin tones and would make a great everyday shade for medium/dusky skin tones. Highly recommended!

The NOT-SO-GOOD about Avon Glazewear Silky Shine Lipstick Apricot :

Avon Glazewear Silky Shine Lipstick Apricot is gorgeous apricot shade with fine shimmer that makes a great everyday wear shade. The formula is luxurious – soft buttery texture, luscious glossy finish and a comfortable, hydrating wear. It may not wear too long especially if not layered properly but I dont mind since the formula is quite forgiving and wearable. I would definitely pick up more shades from this range!
