When it comes down to things, I have to admit that I favor lip gloss over lipstick the majority of the time in my everyday life. Don’t get me wrong, I adore lipstick, but I just love the look of a glossy lip and being a busy person, it’s nice to have something relatively no fuss to throw on in a hurry. The latest gloss to join the ranks of my favorites is Avon Ultra Glazewear in Rich Raspberry.
As I mentioned in my review of Avon’s True Eyeshadow Quad in Chocolate Sensation, Avon has reformulated their cosmetics line and has added True Color Technology that makes the color you see in the lip gloss tube the same you’ll get on your lips. There are 23 shades in 3 different finishes in this line.
Ultra Glazewear is enhanced with Shea Butter and provides a lightweight finish, a little lighter than I typically prefer. The nice thing about these glosses is that they are build able and offer a beautiful gleam with heavy pigmentation. You can apply your gloss and go on your merry way without worrying about it, because it wears extremely well.
Rich Raspberry is such a beautiful color – the perfect light berry shade for those times you don’t want dramatic lips but needs something more than pink or nude. My favorite part of this gloss is that you can layer the color for intensity.
My Final Thoughts: When it comes down to finishes and textures, I tend to prefer a stickier gloss. Ultra Glazewear is lighter than I typically prefer, but it’s still a nice, solid gloss that adds shine, gorgeous pigmentation, and won’t fly off of your lips.
