Avon 24K Gold Lipstick Swatches

Avon's 24K Gold Lipsticks are "Rich, creamy lipstick infused with real 24K gold particles gives lips an exquisite shimmer and opulent shine". This line of lipsticks has been discontinued from Avon's American offering, but are still offered in Australia, where they sell for $19.99 each. An independent Avon representative gave me a sample of each shade to try out. Click through to see swatches, shade descriptions, and my first impression of the line as a whole.

24K Gold is a sheer, orangey golden shade with plentiful, fine gold glitter. 
24K Pink is a very sheer pink with a glossy finish and a marginal amount of gold glitter. 
Amethyst Gold is a sheer plum with large gold glitter particles. 
Golden Peach is a satin finish peach with just a bit of gold shimmer. 
Golden Rose is a warm rosy tone with a metallic finish and fine gold shimmer. 
Natural Gold is a sheer, orangey gold with fine gold shimmer. Natural Gold is very similar to 24K gold, but with less glitter. 
Nude Gold is a sheer, light copper shade with fine gold shimmer and a metallic finish. 
Ruby in Gold is a reddish pink with medium sized golden glitter. 

The 24K Gold Lipsticks are surprisingly slick, moist, and glossy - I expected these glitter packed lipsticks to be rough or dry, but they're rather the opposite! For the most part, color payoff is sheer and cannot be built up with additional swipes. The 24K Lipsticks seem like they would be great for layering over matte lipsticks for a punch of golden sheen. I'll be testing and reviewing the shades individually in the coming weeks. Click to enlarge the photos, if you want a closer look!
