Matte lips are hot right now – everywhere you look almost every brand has a matte lipstick or liquid lip colour that gives a totally matte finish. There are degrees of matte of course; there’s the ofter sheeny-mattes and the completely flat dead mattes. The pay off usually is; extremely long lasting colour but dried […]
Love a new fresh lipstick me, no matter what brand it is! I got a few shades of the Avon Ultra Colour Bold Lipstick to try recently, and I wasn’t disappointed but the product. They say, “Full colour, bold lipstick, with super-pigmennted, high intensity shades. The rich colour you see on the lipstick is the […]
Avon’s newest lipsticks is the Ultra Colour Absolute Lipstick. Oh come on, you’re thinking, aren’t you all Tom Ford and Suqqu? Yes. Yes I am. But I am a lipstick addict, and there’s nothing better than finding a cheap and cheerful gem of a lipstick, and you know what? I think these colours from Avon […]
Months ago, before everything in my life went IN YOUR FACE, I was supposed to do a series of posts with Avon Nailwear Pro Polishes that I was sent to review! I never got the chance to finish… Anyway, finally, here are the swatches of all the newer Avon Nailwear colours that I got- all […]
Today’s polish is blue. When the sun comes out I feel like these kinds of bright shades are more acceptable! Avon’s Cosmic Blue has some pearl shot through it. I quite like it, even if there aren’t lots of different tones going on.
Carrying on from the last nail polish post, I have another one of the new Avon Nail Polish colours! This one is called Starry Sky – a metallic pure clean silver! Something about silver polish just reminds me of Christmas!
Avon recently released 12 new shades of their Pro+ nail polish – because there are so many I am swatching them over the next few days! They say: Gives you the look of a professional manicure. Shine lasts up to 10 days* The advanced formula contains diamond dust and acrylic known for its strengthening, and […]
Avon Nailwear Pro does some pretty decent nail polishes – and this one, Violetta Sparkle has a pretty deep purple base with lots of gold micro sparkle on it. Something about gold and purple just reminds me of chocolate: The packaging is ok, not really up to much. This speedwear stuff I find does try […]
Avon and Refuge have been working together to launch the 1in4 women campaign, which calls on women to learn and recognise the signs of domestic violence and help a loved on who might be suffering now, or in the future. They say: With only 16% of women reporting incidents to the police, the majority of […]
When I heard that Avon made a gel eyeliner I wanted to try it out…until I realised it was just a pencil liner! What?! You know I adore gel liners but the potted kind. Anyway, a friend sent me a load of various Avon make up and one of the items was this Gel liner […]

These three simple Avon lipstick landed on my desk the other week – this is the Ultra Colour Rich Mega Impact Lipstick. These lipstick have a shimmery almost reflective look. They say: CHROMAPIXEL TECHNOLOGY boosts color by reflecting light and enhancing shine to amplify each shade’s true hue. Chromapixel. Could be the name for my […]
I am a big clumsy oaf sometimes…most of the time…which is why I don’t have the patience usually for nail polish because I smudge it in seconds. Or I get those weird bubbles. Or I accidently press it against my pants and it ends up with a weird texture on the top. So I was […]
A perfume from Avon, I hear you sniff? I know, I know but I totally fell in love with the bottle and the green – I love love love this kind of snotty-bog green…that’s an awful description. But I just love this green. I always think of Kylie when I hear the word Absynthe. This […]
I mentioned a few days ago that I had seen the rather bouncy Reece Witherspoon on TV promoting the Spectra Lip Color, an adjustable 7 in 1 lip colour (more of a gloss really). Spectra Lip lets you adjust the shade intensity from 1-7 and you buy the lip colour depending on hues so for […]
I never thought I would be dying for some Avon make up, but I am. Reece Witherspoon just popped up on TV and showed me her pointy chin (love Reece by the way) and her Avon SpectraColour Lipgloss. SpectraColour Lipgloss has a dial that turns to give you several different tones by using a number […]
