Avon Perfect Wear Lip Gloss in Constant Coral Review

Here is another little treasure I received from Jennyitup!

And a Swatch...

Avon Perfect Wear Lip Gloss in Constant Coral

Try as I might, I could not find this lip gloss on Avon's website. I typed in all sorts of search terms and turned up nothing. So I can't tell you anything about the cost or other colors sadly. So I'll just give you what I know from this sample and if you come across the info, please let me know.

This lip gloss is a very pretty shade of coral, a blend of pink and orange. If only it had more pigmentation. As you can see, it went on very sheer on my lips. Honestly I like it a lot better in the tube.

Simple clear tube with a doe foot applicator. Pretty standard, but large for putting in your pocket (which I have a tendency to do with my glosses). Don't worry, it's not large enough where you'll get that "Is that a lip gloss in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?" stare.

How Does it Feel On The Lips?
Tacky. It went on smooth and creamy but as it dried it took on a tacky texture. I was not happy with that. If I'm going to have sticky or tacky, I had better have pigmentation.

This lip gloss made it mostly through my giant mug of green tea, but not long enough for me to really give it the thumbs up in the longevity department. I think it's supposed to be long wearing, so I was a little dissapointed.

Bottom Line
Pretty, but not that special. If I knew the price, I could tell you if it was worth it but I wouldn't pay more than a MAC gloss for it.
