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 same colour you see on your lips. Hydrating formula. SPF15.”
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 are really rather fabulous. These Ultra Colour lipstick is supposed to be pigmented, and hydrating, infused with collagen, vitamin E, […]
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 in one place for your convenience! Avon Nailwear Pro in Star:
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 protection properties giving your nails a high-gloss finish. This is REAL RED: Avon Nailwear packaging is quite simple and you […]
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 quite quickly which is cool; it’s never as fast as they say but I do find I can move around […]
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 domestic violence is suffered in silence. We hope to empower women with the skills to help make this stop. But […]
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 in Black. They say: Smooth-glide eyeliner for bold,intense colour that lasts for hours…short and sweet! I guess I don’t really […]

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 next cat. Anyway here they are. Fuchsia Fun: This is cut out like the new Cle De Peau lipsticks – […]
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 quite excited to try the Avon Speed Dry Nail Enamel: I received two shades, Red Wine and Twilight Blue. They […]
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 scent is (they say): A mysterious oriental fragrance inspired by the magic of absynthe. Captivating green anise and saffron, enticed […]
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 example, the Pinks or the Browns. I ordered 2 from the Avon website (£10 each), the Roses and the Nudes: […]
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 dial from pale to dark (like all the foundation products that you can ‘dial’ except this makes sense because presumably […]
Well well well. With the economy in crisis and the pound weaker than ever against the dollar, one must be frugal when indulging in hauls, which is not easy with al the Spring goodies coming up. Not easy at all. I like Reece Witherspoon and her giant chin, I really do. She was on TV telling me about her cheating husband new Avon Super Shock mascara, and I bought. I bought it because she is […]
