First of all, I just want to say a BIG thank you to everyone for showering me with baby love in the last couple of posts. The Husband and I really cannot wait to meet her!!! Anyway, for more personal updates, you can follow my other blog, Lingspiration, and it’s back to business with beauty talk today 🙂
A couple of months ago, Avon kindly sent me a generous care package filled with beauty products galore. I had lots of fun playing with them and here is a make-up look featuring Avon products. Let me break it down…
The key Avon products I used were as follows :-
1. Avon Ideal Flawless Invisible Coverage Foundation in Natural Beige
Out of habit, I always apply my foundation first because my uneven complexion scares me! 😛
As you can see, Avon Ideal Flawless Invisible Coverage Foundation gives me an adequate amount of coverage to hide flaws such as redness around the nose, but still lets my skin look really natural with freckles peeking through and gives off a nice subtle dewy finish. I like it a lot because it is not heavy and doesn’t oxidise.
2. Avon True Color Eyeshadow Quad in Mocha Latte
I used to be a neutral brown eyeshadow hater until 2 years ago, when it suddenly just clicked! This Avon quad has 2 mattes (#2 Beige and #4 Espresso) and 2 shimmers (#1 Latte and #3 Iced Coffee). The eyeshadows were lovely to apply – smooth and buttery, easy to blend with no fall-out – but the colours are quite soft but has buildable pigmentation. I also used #4 Espresso on my brows.
3. Avon Mega Effects Mascara in Blackest Black
You may have already read about this mascara already as it has a paintbrush roller applicator. I have renamed it Mascara Gamechanger!!! The first time I used it, I was like “Woah….this is weird!” and smudged it on my eyelids. But now I have somewhat mastered the technique and I really like how I can paint on my mascara! Definitely worth trying, ladies!
4. Avon Ultra Colour Lipstick in Cozy Mauve
Literally a lipstick army with so many delightful shades to choose from!!
I think this is my first time trying Avon lipsticks and boy, I am impressed all the way – from the packaging to the lippy shades available! A nice creamy formula packed with colour to last gets a thumbs up from me!
And here’s a close-up of my make-up look with no Photoshop whatsoever…
To purchase Avon products, you need to find yourself an Avon sales rep ASAP or call 1800 646 00 (Aus only).
Thanks again Avon for the products! It was a pleasure to play with all the make-up!
