Avon has great beauty products at such affordable prices. My neighbor sells from them as well. Their beyond color lipsticks are fabulous. Long lasting once applied & they condition my lips so well. They also are SPF 15 and are usually on sale, the last time I bought them it was by one get one half off, so for 2 lipsticks it cost me about $12. The other product I always get from them is their mascara and their eye makeup remover. The eye makeup remover always goes on sale for like $1.99 every once in a while!!! Great price.
As for their lotions, I suggest the Skin so soft products. Although I rarely buy them. Compared to my usual brand of Barielle, their is no comparison. Barielle is over and beyond the best source for foot, hand/nail & body lotion/creams & treatments.
Yep my absolute favorite lipstick of all and I have tried many is Avon's Beyond Color 2 X the Retinol, they are so moist and glide on and have the SPF protection for lips. The colors are fantastic. NO I am not an Avon Lady just a lover of the products.
My everyday go-to eyeshadow is Avon's Jillian Dempsey "Ice Shimmer"!
My sister gave it to me and I love it! It's just the perfect natural but sexy trio of ivory, plum and a creamy ivory highlighter. The mirror is actually big enough to see in, another plus! Blends well and stays on - what more can I ask for?
I suck at eyeshadow. I end up looking like a car accident victim! more of it smudged under my eyes & on my cheeks & temples (forget the stuff is there & rub my eyes heehee!) so I just do not bother. As a little girl I loved those plastic avon brooches with the solid 'perfume' (bathroom air freshener) in them. I remember coloured soap crayons for in the bath too. As a kid they had all sorts of funny gimicky plastic stuff I was thrilled to get. For my mother it was great because the stuff was CHEAP but I felt like Gloria Swanson in my pink plastic baubles, flamingo pink kiddy lipstick & gobby Avon rings. I even had bubble-gum pink plastic heart shaped sun glasses. Verry classy! They still sell a lot of stuff like that & as soon as my niece is old enough, we're going to have some fun with Avon too.
I don't know what it is about Avon, I haven't found anything that I particularly like but everytime I get my hands on a catalogue I spend a fortune.
I think I've sold everything I've bought from Avon bar one thing, which I still don't like I just haven't been able to find anything else like it. It's a skin brightener, but I found it made my skin look really washed out (even more so) so I tried mixing it with my foundation (which was always too dark for me anyway) and it does make my foundation much lighter and a bit more matched to my skin tone.
Gah. Rant over. But if anyone has any ideas of something similar that works I'd give you a kiss. Maybe not a kiss but meh. I'd give you a Thank, I still haven't used it at all yet lol.
Avon has one product that I know really works! It's called Anew Plump & Smooth for lips.
You use it in the morning and at night. The container is ugly, It looks like a gray & white pen. The plump side (gray side) for the lips really does make your lips plump better than the other products I have from Sephora.
