Avon Makeup Maven Haul
As my internet friends know, I am Avon's Northeast Regional Makeup Maven which makes me an Avon Color Brand Ambassador. This means that every few months a box of goodies shows up at my door for me to use and talk about if I feel so inclined. Here are a few photos of the contents of the box I received most recently.
I have talked many times before all over the net about the new Ultra Color Lipsticks even doing an entire video about them on YouTube. In case you missed it the gist is that with Avon's new True Color Technology the vibrant color you see in the tube is exactly how it will look on your lips. No secretly sheer barely pigmented colors in the bunch and with the clear cap you can easily see which color you need in your stash of 55 vivid stay-true colors. The color in these lipsticks actually renews itself as you wear it so it will be just as bright when you take it off as it was when you put it on. The newest edition to my lipstick family shown below is the satin finish color Crush.
A deep rich teal is a very popular color for fall 2013 and Avon was sure to give it to you in this limited edition True Color Eyeshadow Quad called Savage Beauty. Pictured here you can see not only the limited edition packaging, but you can see that each shadow is numbered with an eye chart on the back of the packaging showing you a foolproof way to apply them. You can also see that the palette includes a mixture of finishes so the matte addicted shadow wearer is not left out.
Up next is the Urban Splatter Nail Enamel in Blackout. Inspired by the graffiti nail art trend this polish comes in 6 different shades and can be layered over any nail polish color. Filled to the brim with white and black large and small hexagonal shapes, glitters, bits, and strips this edgy nail finish is perfect for fall and tops off the Moto trend like a VP in leather chaps tops off a Harley.
America's #1 eyeliner is now dual ended! You have five options to choose from. The pencil I have here is the Glimmersticks Dual Ended Liner in The Classic which as you can see is black on one end and a dark brown on the other.
With the new Gell Finish 7-in-1 Nail Enamel you can skip the salon and the UV lights and get a mani with shine, a gel-like finish, vivid color, base coat, top coat, protection, and strengthener all in one. It comes in 12 different shades and doesn't require anything special other than just regular old nail polish remover to take it off. The beautiful peacock green color I have here is called Envy.
You asked for it and you got it! The Perfect Eye Brow Kit is a powder and wax duo that comes in 4 different shades. Use the wax to prep and shape the brows and then use the color to fill in and define. The color you see here is Deep Brown (and before you ask the Nailwear Pro+ nail polish color I am wearing in this picture is a limited edition color for fall called Savage).
The Wrapped in Velvet Eyeshadow Palette comes in two different choices. The one you see here is called Crushed Velvet. Either palette includes 4 metallic shadows and a matte liner all of which can be used wet or dry. You see them finger swatched here dry, so you can imagine the intense finish you can build up to with these palettes. Before you matte addicts pout over there being no matte shadows just know that I have been using the liner as a shadow also to define the outer v just fine and it is after all called Wrapped in Velvet. A velvety finish is exactly what you get.
Next up is a special mark. surprise!!! The mark. On the Dot Lip Color Compact. This is the lip version of mark.'s best selling eye compact and includes 9 different glosses. For swatching purposes I just barely tapped the tips of my fingers in and as you can see you get a mix of sheer and creamy colors some with buildable intensity, some with shimmer, some with shine. There is something for everyone here and none are too intense for even the most meek of lipcolor wearers.
Lastly we have the Cream Blush and Highlighter Duo. Sadly this only comes in one shade currently but if we scream and yell loud enough maybe they will give us more colors to collect. That being said, the color they chose in this rich creamy peachy tone and this golden highlighter which gives you just a touch of healthy glow is the perfectly universal choice for this dual-ended product.
Of course all of these products are available for purchase at youravon.com/showard and you will be seeing them in different looks I'll be sporting over the next few weeks. As always, don't forget to subscribe for more beauty and fashion updates and leave your comments and questions below.
