Lippies from a friend

This post is FAR overdue-- a good vox buddy, Laurie, sent me a whole bunch of lippies that didn't rock her boat after my Avon lip review way back when. I have meant to blog about this for ages but you know how it is... life just seems to get in the way. Big "Thank You" goes out to beautiful Laurie first of all.

Laurie sent me-
Avon Glazewear in Coral Beat - (I think--- the writing is so small for my old lady eyes- not sure a teen could read this tiny type though so I don't beat myself up too badly about not being able to read the little label on the end.)
Avon Glazewear Sparkle in Rave
Avon Glazewear Intense in Crimson
Avon Plump pout in Mocha Kiss
Revlon Color Stay lip gloss in Nude
Also included in photo between Crimson and Mocha Kiss  is my own Avon Plump Pout in Nude

Overall I like all the Avon products as far as feel and smell. The Glazewear ones have little smell and the Plump Pouts have a rather minty smell to them. The Revlon one is a little different. First it has a petroleum like smell and goes on very thin/slick feeling but dries down to a heavier feel.

Here's Coral Beat

Rave

Crimson

Mocha Kiss

Nude Pout


And Revlon Nude

Here's swatches of them in above order from RIGHT to LEFT (ie Coral Beat is far right) on my arm- no flash

Here's swatches of them with the flash

Overall I really like Coral Beat- rather sheer but definitely give a pop of coral, but I'm giving it to DD since she has these gorgeous pouty lips and loves corals. I may keep Rave for myself - undecided but the others are definitely going to DD since they are pretty dark on me and since I have thinner lips-- dark colors don't look all that stunning. Last is a full face shot (Flash) with Nude Pout to show you a bit of depth-- most of the lip shots are a bit faded out. So Crimson was really dark on my lips.
