Welcome to a new world of lipgloss.
Fall seems to be dominated by bigger, better lipglosses with monster applicators. Smashbox called dibs first and MAC quickly followed with Hard Candy not missing out on the action but all has been quiet ever after those “bigger” lipgloss releases.
A super sized lipgloss with a pigmented pop and a glossy finish plus SPF built right in!
I think part of the appeal here is the killer price tag. These retail for $8 each ($4.99 on sale now) and feature a whopping 0.37 oz size! That’s over double the size of a MAC Lipglass at 0.17 oz at half the cost (MAC’s Lipglasses are $14.50 each).
Putting size and value aside I think I love these because of the applicator and application process which allows you to apply gloss easily in one swipe. Avon boasts that the applicator will hold 175% more gloss than a smaller wand and honestly, I completely buy into that since I can easily do my upper and lower lip without every having to re-dip my applicator! I love that the sponge applicator not only saturates well with color but also fits the contour of my lips so comfortably. Truly in the case of lipgloss, bigger really is better and I can’t help but wish all brands would do a similar packaging (size comparison between a MAC gloss and SuperShock one below). How great would a Chanel Glossimer be in this packaging? Wicked ace!
Formula is a step way above the looser, thinner consistency of a Avon Glazewear Lipgloss. This has a thicker formula with very good color pay off. The two shades I tried had excellent pigmentation that went from sheer to medium easily. I thought they wore very comfortably without being too tacky or sticky plus factor in SPF 15 and you have a great gloss for wearin’ and tearin’ both indoors and out. They have a glossy finish with a nice hydration that keeps my lips soft and smooth. The glosses have a fruity, watermelon taste that was not overpowering and very faint background noise in my opinion.
SuperShock Lipgloss is available in eight shades. I tried too which were Melon Madness and Bronze Blitz. Bronze Blitz proved my favorite of the two shades. It’s a shimmery rosy bronze where as Melon Madness was a bright coral melon. Both had nice pigmentation and could be easily worn alone sans lipstick or a stain as they proved to provide excellent color coverage.
The gloss has a shorter wear time so you’re look at about two hours of wear before it disappears and fades away.
- Anyone who liked MAC Wonderglass (if you missed out on Wonderglass or just wanted more colors here you go).
- Those wanting a pigmented lipgloss in a larger size for alot less money!
- Those wanting a comfortable wearing pigmented lipgloss with a shiny finish!
- Beauty budgeters!
- Those who want an extra long wearing lipgloss.
- Those sensitive to fragrance or flavor in their lip products (the flavor was very faint as was the scent but just be aware if you are sensitive to such things).
Overall, Avon SuperShock Liquid Lip Shine isn’t the most incredible lipgloss I’ve ever tried but the price and size are just RIGHT. The gloss has a comfortable feel on my lips and wears well throughout the day but touch ups are a necessary evil. I was duly impressed with the pigmentation as well considering Avon glosses tend to be a bit sheer and lacking in the color department.
I can’t deny the deal here! The best part is the price is so great you really don’t have to settle on just one and can’t just haul all of them if you choose without breaking the bank!
They do, indeed, deserve a Muse Approval.
