Items I’m thinking about from the Avon Catalog-Campaign 23 & 24 (just a sneak peek of 24)

*no one paid me to say anything about this and I haven’t bought these items-yet. If I do, it will be with my own funds*

I go back and forth with my feelings about Avon….in today’s ‘now’ generation, it’s not exactly convenient to wait for things. That sounds entitled because it is. Maybe I should be ashamed of myself-and maybe I am. Regardless, there are some things that Avon just does well. My local representative dropped off the latest campaign (and I took a sneak peek of the next one) and as I thumb through, here are some items I am keeping my eye on.

Avon for Jewelry?

I’m on the fence about Avon.  There are some MUST have items -including Skin So Soft (best bug repellent) and the occasional eye cream.  In today’s ‘I want it now’ mentality, it can be hard to wait over a week for something to arrive.  Going through a representative or consultant seems so 90’s as well (Avon does offer an online option though).   After my latest purchase from Avon, I can answer the ‘Avon for Jewelry?’ question with a resounding ‘YES!’-especially if you are a fan of sterling silver jewelry.

My Morning Skincare Routine – for my best skin ever!

So you’ve been asking about my morning skincare routine. And asking. It’s time for me to deliver. So here’s what I use on my skin in the MORNING. Now. I can’t lie. The evening is when the real magic happens in terms of products. Or maybe not. I think there are equal parts of pixie dust in both the morning and the evening.

Finally tried it! Avon Mega-effects mascara

I’ve been meaning to try this ‘device’ for over a year now.  I finally pulled the trigger when I discovered I have an Avon representative (literally) right around the corner.

From the website:

This breakthrough mascara provides 24-hour volume, leaving lashes darker, denser and more dramatic. Get ready for a corner to corner lash transformation with our first ever Wonderbrush.

The Wonderbrush bends and adjusts to multiple angles capturing every lash, top to bottom. The unique brush fits the natural shape of lashes, coating them evenly with formula from root to tip. 0° gives you quick application and volume, adjust to 40° to apply to upper and lower lashes, and 90° gives you full application from root to tip. The brush design allows for full access to every lash, delivering 40% more mascara than average brushes. Mega Volume and Mega lashes have never been easier!

BENEFITS

• 40% more mascara delivery for MEGA volume
• Specially designed brush gives full access to every lash
• Easy to apply
• Eyes look bigger
• Lashes look darker, denser, and more dramatic
• Provides all day, 24-hour volume
• Lashes will look phenomenal from dusk till dawn
• Sweat-proof and non-flaking
• Clump-proof
• Hypoallergenic
TO USE
Grip the product at sides and remove red cap
• Rock brush from side to side and remove
• Bend brush to desired degree, apply from root to tip
• Apply multiple coats to make your perfect look
• Make sure applicator is locked back in place

My experience with this mascara is positive.  The formula is wet, which isn’t my first choice but the volume and length I get from it is impressive.  Overall, if you are looking for length and volume, give this a try. It’s definitely different and the wand/brush takes some getting used to. Another tip would be to wait in between applying coats-and I wouldn’t apply more than 3 coats as the mascara does start to weigh lashes down.  My only hang up about this product is that it takes time to apply-so if you’re running late or a chronic ‘scrambler’, I’d skip this for sure.

Have you tried this or am I the last person on the planet to use it?
