Hello everyone! I hope you are having a wonderful day. I am back with a more fun beauty related video, blog post and giveaway! A friend/subscriber Jacqueline sent me some Avon items to test and review. I happily said yes! In the video below I am going to go over a few of the items she sent including demoing the Avon Big Daring Mascara. Here are my thoughts...hope you enjoy! Also there is more information below about the other items she sent along with a fun giveaway sponsored by Jacqueline herself!
This is the Avon Power Serum is by far is my favorite item out of everything she sent me. It feels amazing on the skin. I have used this mostly at night ( I do use moisturizer after ) and when I wake up my skin really does look better. That was just with a few samples.
Here's the benefits:
• Advance Boost Technology helps diminish fine lines and wrinkles while increasing skin's natural radiance
• Dramatically improves skin's overall appearance
• Hypoallergenic and non comedogenic
• Allergy-tested and dematologist-tested
• Suitable for sensitive skin
I noticed my skin really looking and feeling better using this serum. It felt firming and my skin felt moisturized and the over all appearance actually changed after one use. I swear. I was shocked at how much my skin really enjoyed this product.
Jacqueline also sent me a full size Avon Big & Daring Mascara. This is an interesting mascara because it is a 24 hour formula. Meaning it will stay put for a very long time.
Here are the benefits:
• Clump-free, smudge-free, flake-free
• Curved brush with mutl-level patented bristles
• Brush captures every lash while sculpting and filling in gaps.
• .338 fl. oz
• Available in Blackest Black, Black, Brown Black
• Opthalmologist tested
• Suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers
This is a wet formula for sure. It has a huge wand with a lot of bristles and as you could see in the video, it really does plump up and lengthen. I think you need to really take you're time when applying this because it is a bit wetter. It does coat every lash and dries rather quick. You will need to use a oil based remover to get this easily off you're lashes. I don't wear my make up that long but it's nice to have a strong mascara that wont smudge or flake. It's not my favorite of all time but it's pretty nice.
Another product I got to try out is one of the Ultra Color Lipsticks in Carnation. She also sent cherry jubilee which was a little to bright for me but a beautiful shade. I personally liked the pinky mauve Carnation.
Here are the benefits:
• Conditions and moisturizes lips
• Over 60 shades
• Chose your finish: Satin, shimmer & soft matte
• See shade instantly with clear view window packaging
• Designed for every skin tone
• Full coverage lipstick
This color was perfect for me. It glided right on. It didn't feel heavy. I think the color alone is perfect for any time of the year. I did have to reapply it a few times through out the day but with as with any moisturizing lipstick, it didn't do that ugly feathering appearance on my lips. This was another favorite that she sent me!
I got a bunch of samples of Avon's Ultra Sexy Heart Eau de Toilette Spray. However the bottle is super cute! Here's a little more about this scent:
Top Notes: Maraschino Cherry, Mandarin, Blackberry
Mid Notes: Red Rose Petals, Jasmine Petals, Vanilla-Orchid
Bottom/Dry Notes: Chocolate Marshmallow, Benzoin, Australian Sandalwood Oil
I am picky about perfumes. This one however is very spring like. It's very light...not a heavy scent at all. I personally couldn't smell a lot of the rose petals or jasmine but I did smell a lot of the drier notes such as the chocolate marshmallow and sandalwood. I smelled the orchid too. I actually like it a lot. It does smell fresh and light. Perfect for spring and summer.
She also sent a few samples of the Black Suede Sport cologne for Scott to try out. Here's a little more about this scent.
This scent seemed to linger all around the house all day. I could smell it on the animals and even on Scott after he got home from a long day's work. I was taken by how good this smelled. I was kinda shocked it was an Avon product. I have paid tons for other colognes for Scott and this one is just as good. This would make a great gift for any man in your life.
Avon has really stepped up their game in the past few years. Their skincare lines are amazing. All of them from what I can tell. Their makeup is top of the line as well.
