Review: Avon Shine Attract lipstick in Caressing Coral15:38
Today's review is about another Avon product, which I wanted to buy for a while and I did now, when I saw that they will discontinue this product. It's a lipstick, which is more like a colored lip balm.
The lipstick it's called Shine Attract and the shade I chose is Caressing Coral. Lipstick has a shiny silver packaging and a clear top. In the inner circle of the lipstick is a color and around it it's transparent gel. The middle produces color and the outer part produces moisture to the lips.
The application can be tricky, because the color transfers only to the inner part of the lips, since it's only in the middle of the lipstick. It's better to apply it and then smudge it around with either fingers, brush or by moving the lips.
It find it to be more of a colored lip balm. It is however more pigmented then a lip balm. It's one of those things perfect for someone who doesn't like lipsticks or wants a subtle color. I also find it would be great for summer, when I don't bother with lipsticks. The gel gives a bit of shine and moisture. It's pretty moisturizing on the lips, but after a while the moisture disappears. If you apply another coat it's back again. Of course it's not long lasting and you need to reapply it often.
The shade is orange toned red and it has a fairly visible shimmer in it - which I am not a fan. But thankfully the shimmer isn't that invisible, since it is somewhat a pink shade. I like the smell, which is a very subtle sweet smell.
Lipstick contains 6.6 grams and it costs 8 € full price, but it's often on sale. I bought it for 5.60 €.
Conclusion: pretty color, like the gel because it gives moisture, but that disappears after a while. Pretty packaging and hard to apply. If you don't buy it, you won't miss out on anything.
