Personal experience swatches
Since I’m old enough to have a belly that says “I’ve had kids”, this is not an age appropriate colour for me. Also it is a little bit too much on the pink side.
GemThis is an excellent everyday colour for me, hint of copper in muted red.
I bought Toasty, it didn’t turn out the way I imagined but mostly it’s ok on me.
In the tube
Here’s how it looked on me
Mind you I’m a Caucasian gal with almost mauve lips (really, all I need is gloss) and orange/yellow undertones in my skin. Apparently I brought out the burnt orange in “toasty” more than the rosy mauve counterpart I was hoping for. Still, wearing lipstick makes me feel sophisticated and since the colour looks good on me even without being the colour I wanted, I’m going to keep it.
Mark. gloss gorgeous spice is a much better colour for me. I won’t be repurchasing Toasty.
The one’s I haven’t bought but did try the sample of
I find it most annoying to want a new lipstick and not have a bloody clue what the real colour of the thing is as compared to the blob of colour that’s printed on the glossy magalogue page.
I buy all my makeup from Mark. which is the “young people” part of Avon. I’m out of the “young” part but the application, colour and staying power are awesome from Mark. And the purses…!
Anywhoo, today we will be discussing the 11 lipclick lipsticks. I’ve tried them all and will tell you what I thought they looked like. That’s nice and all, but what you really need is a pair of lips wearing the colour or at the very least a swatch on someone’s arm. I don’t do that, it’s WAY too much trouble, so I’ll be redirecting you to other blogs where people have done that, copyrights respected. I am helpful and organized enough for that.
They are creamy, moisturizing (Vitamin E) and don’t rub half off during the day. And the container is magnetic so the lid clicks shut to the bottom and you don’t get an entire lipstick smushed to the everything in your purse.
My lips have some pigment to them, a blue-undertone kind of pink, so a clear gloss, like the Mark. juice gems in pomegranate is all I really need to look ok. Whatever your natural lip pigments are will affect what the lipstick looks like on you. My lips tend to exaggerate any orange tones in a lipstick. The more “rosy” or pigmented your lips are, the less certain shades (especially sheer, neutral or nude) will show up true to what you see in the tube.

Here’s another swatch list I found, the colours aren’t really true but it’ll give you a better idea of what they are.
This one is better:
This one is a bit laughable:
