Avon Calling! Not just for your mother ;)

I recently placed my first Avon order and was very pleased at not only the speed of delivery but the quality of the products.

I ordered the Perfumed Skin Softener in 'Sweet Honesty', a Glazewear Sparkle Gloss in 'Dazzling Diamond', and 3 Ultra Color Rich lipsticks in 'Pout', 'Sheer Light Peach' and 'Poppy Love'.


Sorry for the quality of the pics but you get the hint of what these look like on.

Pout


Sheer Light Peach


Poppy Love


The colors are more accurate in my swatch below.


I love these lipsticks and am so happy that I got them. They are super creamy and moisturizing and are pretty pigmented with the exception of the Sheer Light Peach which doesn't really show too well on me. As you can see Poppy Love is very much a poppy red color and very shiny, Pout is a wonderful pinky nude again with a lot of shine. At approx $4.99 each these lipsticks are worth every penny :)

I also picked up the Dazzling Diamonds gloss just to add on top of some lipsticks I already have. Its super sparkly and not too stick and comes with a sponge doe foot applicator. I haven't used it yet but I'm thinking this may be a great addition to my kit!

The Skin Softener really surprised me since its huge and the picture in the book looked so small. I paid $3.95 for it which then went up to $9.99 I think in a later campaign. It is 150ml of rich, fragrant lotion! These are great for travel or even as gifts and smell awesome.

I'm not really sure why it took me so long to venture into the Avon world but I have to say I'm impressed. The quality of the products is amazing and the price is event better :) Since Avon also sells Mark products I think Ill be testing that out next.

Are you an Avon or Mark fan?
Do you have any favorites?

Id love to hear from you so feel free to comment and let me know your thoughts on Avon.

LOL Farah! I used to wear the Sweet Honesty solid perfume when I was a kid - my grandma was an Avon lady so we always got Avon for Christmas! It used to come in these little plastic brooches shaped like cats and flowers - I hadn't thought of Sweet Honesty for years, thanks for bringing back that nice memory!

Best, Lisamarie

I am an avon rep (a bad one at that, I don't make any money at it, I just enjoy getting the discount).
My fav products are the lip sticks and lip glosses.

When I started selling avon I thought it was just for my mom and grandma, I never realized what great products they actually had. I am glad you see the quality in the products. Mark is great too.

I just placed my first Avon order last week - and I too was amazed by the speed in which it arrived! LOVE the Glazewear Lip Glosses I grabbed at just $2.95 each!

I like the Beyond Color Plumping Lip Conditioner SPF 15. It's a very moisturizing lip balm. I used it when I was sick and super congested and can only breathe out my mouth, and my usually cracked lips were super soft even then. :)

The smell leaves something to be desired but I layer it under my MAC lipsticks so I don't really smell it.
