If you’re following me on snapchat you have seen this beauty package from Avon last week already. Since blog posts need time to write and upload and stick to the schedule, I am bringing a full and close up review to you today.
Avon Face Pearls
In the catalogue and online I’ve seen only concealer/correcting and bronzing face pearls. The ones I’ve got look like a mix of highlighter and blush. Highlighter prevails and that is how I am using it. I actually use it with the blush brush I also got and apply it on top of my cheek bones. It gives a natural sheer (but shimmery) glow and doesn’t need any extra powder setting.
Avon Advanced Techniques Leave-In-Treatment
I always get excited over any hair product and this time it was not different. A bottle contains Moroccan and argan oil and is meant to be for all hair types. It says you suppose to apply it on damp hair but it made no difference to me applying it this way. I use it on dry hair and while the bottle has a pump for more practical application I need four pumps to apply it evenly and effectively. I am down to ¾ of a bottle and I’ve already used it three or four times. It comes in 30 ml glass bottle.
Avon Perfectly Matte Lipsticks
Lipstick is my favourite makeup. I have four shades to show you, from lightest to darkest: Perfectly Nude, Au Naturale, Pure Pink, and Adoring Love. Two I already know will be my daily lipsticks- Au Naturale and Pure Pink. They’re easy to apply and they go on smoothly. It’s very much like creamy consistency while applying them and once they’re on, they gain matte effect (however, they still feel creamy). You need a lip balm as a base before applying a lipstick. From four shades I find the lightest unsuitable for my skin tone. It must be the shade but unlike others, this one (Perfectly Nude) show all imperfections- chapped lips and wrinkles. Others I am very satisfied with and I keep them close to reach for them often.
*I need to improve close-up shots, especially face shots. Until then, please bear with me. The lighting here is odd but the lipstick shades are very close to what they look in real life.
