New Year, Improved You! – Avon calling!

I think every woman has used Avon at least once in her life right? I used to love my mum getting the catalogue because I would always create an imaginary list of all the things that I would like to order, given the chance!

Avon Calling!

Now I am older however, I can! I decided it would be great to get Avon included in my New Year, Improved You feature as they are a brand you can totally trust and they are always coming up with new & exciting products. I was lucky enough to meet up with a local Avon rep in Trowbridge, Sian Tucker and she gave me a wonderful goodie bag  including these amazing products…

I was given a sample of these amazing lipstick shades, perfect for winter. I discussed with Sian that I prefer darker colours because I have dark hair and some of these are perfect for my colouring. I try to wear lipstick whilst at work and these colours are subtle yet beautiful.

 I was also given two shades of the Ideal Flawless Foundation, Light Pink & Ivory. Now my skin colour is actually quite pale until the summer so I always have to swap & change my foundation. I have never tried an Avon foundation before so I was pretty excited to try it!

As you can see, there is a distinct difference in shade. I decided to go with the Light Pink as I felt it would better suit my skin. I used a primer as a base then applied my concealer and then the foundation. It goes on really well and gives a good coverage.

 I’m pleased to say that it did last throughout the day but if you want more of a coverage then this one is not for you. I don’t like a lot of foundation so this was just perfect for me!

I LOVE Avon’s eyeshadow palettes and I am the proud owner of a few of them but the ones Sian gave me to try are just gorgeous!

You maybe thinking, how on earth do these colours go together? Well I’m pleased to say that they do and they look amazing! Blue is my favourite colour so I was very excited to try these out. The shadows are numbered as to which order you should use them so number 1 would be your base, 2 across the lid, 3 the crease and 4 being in the corners, that is what I choose to do with them anyway. The colours are vibrant, strong and very long lasting. You can great some amazing everyday/party looks with these palettes, perfect for the New Year!

So give Avon another chance and see what you can get to create that ‘Improved You’ this year!
