Avon Extralasting Line..

Avon has a new line that replaced the old Perfect Wear line called "Extralasting".  As the name implies this makeup is geared for super long wear!  Let's get started!

Extralasting Foundation:
This foundation really does last all day!  It's creamier than most and doesn't dry quite as fast as the traditional long wearing foundation.  Even though the shades range from super light to dark for this foundation, it can oxidize with some shades.  This foundation blended nicely, dried to a flawless finish, and last about 8 hours.  I enjoyed this coverage!

Extralasting Lipstick:
This lipstick ROCKS!!  I love a good long wearing lipstick, but HATE when it feels like I've sucked a garbage bag around my lips! Blah!  This lipstick comes in a nice range of shades, applies smoothly, and dries to a nice long lasting metallic finish.  I won't say this lasts all day by any means, but it does last for a good while.  I wore this a good 6 hours without a touchup!

Extralasting Lipgloss:
This lipgloss is super shiney, comes in some beautiful shades, and lasts a long time!  Plus, these lipglosses look gorgeous over the Extralasting Lipstick!  These lipglosses follow suit with the lipstick- they are not sticky, but smooth and dry to a nice finish. Highly recommended!

Extralasting Eyeshadow:
This eyeshadow has great wear and a beautiful finish!  These are loosely powdered eyeshadows that apply smoothly.  These shadows are slightly wet and dry to a nice finish that looks beautiful!  I will say that unless you wear an eye primer that these can crease.

Anew Genics Anti-Aging Cream

Avon's Anew line is the cutting edge of anti-aging skin care
and the newest addition to the family is by far
my favorite cream to date!  Introducing the new Anew Genics!
This cream is highly effective!  I have been using this for only 2 weeks and already I see a reduction in fine lines,
the texture of my skin is much more smooth,
a healthier "glow", and an overall better appearance.

If you have sensitive skin you may not want to
try this cream. It does have a slight stinging/tingling sensation when applied.  This is normal, and as your
face gets used to the cream you will feel the tingling
less and less. 

Overall, I really love this cream!!  Two thumbs up!

Affordable Mascaras!!

Alot of people believe that you can't get good quality mascara from a drug store mascara.  That is simply not true! 
I have very thin, average length lashes so I want a mascara that plumps and lenthens. My all time favorites are:

Neutrogena Healthy Volume Mascara:
This mascara really plumps your lashes and makes them super soft! This didn't flake on me or burn my eyes. This mascara has olive oil in the formula so it conditions your lashes.  Great for contact lens wearers! Retails for $7-$8

Mascara Colossal Volume Mascara:

This mascara is really amazing!  I did not think I would like this mascara but it took my lashes from "meh" to "Whoa"!  Somehow it coats differently than other mascaras and not only plumps my lashes but multiplies them.  I experienced no burning or flaking. This washes off easily with soap and water. Retails for $6

L'Oreal Lash Out Mascara:

If you like soft, teddy bear, full fanned lashes with lots of length you will LOVE this
mascara!!  I have used this mascara on and off for years and love the results! I experienced no flaking, smudging, or burning when using this mascara.  Retails for  $7

Cover Girl Volume Exact:

I love this mascara!  This really boosts my lashes and dries quickly.  This mascara separates, gives volume, and actually helped to lenthen them.  This has the rubber wand that grabs each lash and is easy to work with.  Retails for $6-$7

Avon Smooth Minerals Eyeshadow

Some of the best mineral eyeshadow I've ever
used is from the Avon Smooth Minerals line!
These little gems come in a flattering array
of colors for all tastes! 
The container is small and round, and that means
one thing--you must shake the product out!
The packaging leaves a bit to be desired as it can
be messy.
The eyeshadow brush method works well, but my favorite is the wet sponge eyeshadow applicator!  When this
shadow is applied wet you have a highly pigmented "BAM" look that lasts all day!  My favorite colors in the
line are Rose Quartz, and Bronzestone.

Anew Skin Transforming Primer

This primer is awesome!  It's a gel/lotion consistency, and a little goes a long way.  This primer dries quickly, spreads evenly, and reduces the look of fine lines. 
I love the finish of this product!  It dries to a matte finish and doesn't make your skin dewy or tacky.  It has a light fragrance that dissipates once applied, and really helps decrease fine lines and wrinkles! 

I highly recommend this primer!

Magix Essential Mattifier

Avon has introduced the Magix Mattifier.  If any of you have seen it, it has very simple sleek packaging.  It reminds me very much of the one that Mally makeup offers!

This really did mattify my T-Zone and helped to reduce the oil.  It reduced my oil without aggravating my skin.  I was not expecting this product to work this well!  This is highly recommended! 

On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being the best, I give this product a 9!

I bought this product on sale for $7.99 which is normal for Avon since they have awesome sales on their products!  See your local Avon Rep today or visit my website: !

Avon Glimmersticks Eyeliners

Who doesn't love a good eyeliner?  Glimmersticks is a retractable pencil eyeliner and comes in 3 choices:
- original (smooth wearing eyeliner)
- Diamonds (metallic shimmer eyeliner that looks beautiful and gives your eyes a pop of color)
- Waterproof (this stuff doesn't budge)

On a typical day I wear the waterproof version and it doesn't smudge or budge! The color selection for waterproof isn't extensive: black, brown, navy blue, and copper. 

My favorite for holidays and nights out is definitely the Diamonds!  You get beautiful metallic shimmer and the colors are spot on with Sugar Plum (plum metallic), gold, black, copper, brown, emerald green, and blue. 

The best thing?  Avon usually has these on sale buy one get one (2 for $7) or $2.99 a piece!  Super affordable!

Avon True Color Mocha Latte Quad

This palette is phenomenal! If you like a soft neutral look then this one is for you!  They blend easily and give great color pay off! The top 2 shades are matte, the bottom left is a gorgeous bronzy-shimmer, while the bottom right is a medium rich brown.  There are so many different looks you can create with this! 
These are usually on sale for $5.99 and come in a fabulous range of colors.  See your local Avon rep or visit my website !

Avon Mosaic Effect Crackle Top Coat Nail Polish

Avon Mosaic Effect Crackle Top Coat is super fun!  Wear this over any desired nail polish color and it crackles over top to create this fun look!  For $3.99 it's so affordable and super fun to play with. 

It works like the higher end crackle polishes, but alot more pocket book friendly!

Where to buy:  online or your local Avon Rep!

Milani Baked Blush

Some of my favorite blushes come from the Milani Baked Blush line!  Absolutely LOVE these blushes!  The colors are beautiful, the finish is lovely, and you get alot of product for your money.  The finishes range from semi matte to luminous and are very pigmented.  
My favorite blush colors from this line is Coralista and Luminoso! Walgreens and CVS usually carry this line.  These are a must try!

AVON Ultra Color Rich Moisture Seduction Lipsticks

One of my favorite lipsticks is AVON Moisture Seduction from the Ultra Color Rich line. I have very dry flakey lips and these wear JUST like a balm with color!  The lipstick is swirled with a vanilla looking balm and the effect is UBER hydrating!!   These typically run for $7 but Avon typically has these on sale anywhere from $2.99-$4.99. 

This is one of my favorite colors in this line Plum Gorgeous!  You get great color payoff with these lipsticks!  Visit your AVON rep for samples!!

Glazewear Lipgloss!

I love the look of Glazewear Lipglosses from AVON!  These little gems wear very high end and are super affordable.  They typically run $6.00 at normal price, but are often on sale for $2.99 or BOGO!  They have a finish for every taste:  Intense, Shine, & Sparkle!  I love all the finishes, but my favorite would have to be the shine!  These are not sticky, and leave your lips very soft and full of gloss!  Get your samples today!
