BEAUTY: Mini Avon Haul

One of my friends has recently become an Avon rep so my mum and I found ourselves with an Avon catalogue to flip through for the first time in a while (we usually buy online or through eBay). We only ordered a few things and these three were my choices – I had ordered a hair refresher type thing but it was out of stock.

I decided to try out the new gel finish polishes in the shade Crème Brulee which as the name suggests is a lovely creamy nude. The consistency is similar to the Barry M Gelly polishes but so far it’s lasted a fair bit longer in terms of chipping. At the moment these are half price as an introductory offer so if you fancy picking some up I’d go for it sooner rather than later.

I’m not usually one for a vampy lip but I decided to give the Color Trend “Lasting Smile” Lip Paint in the shade Nocturnal a go as it was in the sale. It seemed a bit more purple in the catalogue so I was quite surprised when it turned out to be a deep burgundy shade (it’s a lot deeper than the picture suggests). It applies easily and is really creamy. The wear time is decent but not fantastic, you’d definitely need a top up or two throughout the day but the lighter colours may not have this issue. I’m still working up the guts to wear this out but one day I will!

My final choice was a Black Mineral Mask which I haven’t got around to trying yet, but if it lives up to its claims of leaving skin cleansed, unblocked and matte I’m sure I’ll love it. I also got a little face brush free with this which I’m looking forward to using too. I’ll probably do a full review on this at some point in the future.
