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.

What are your favourites from Avon?


  1. Awh Avon! Deffo got a love/hate relationship with this company- but that's probably more to do with the fact that I have to deal with the business side of it! I have to admit I didn't particularly like the gel nail varnish and have much preferred their Nailwear Pro+ ones as I've found application slightly easier. I also bought the mask ages ago but I've still not really used it- prefer the emergency clear skin face wash. I would recommend the sleek silk shampoo and conditioner! I've been using it for the past few weeks and I've been loving it!

  4. I always forget about Avon! Thanks for reminding me, I am going to have a browse through their site in a momento. I love the look of the nail polish and the face mask sounds good! I am scared to try things out on my face at the moment as my skin keeps taking hissy fits and breaking out if I use anything new on it, maybe this mask will be okay though! haha, thanks for sharing :) xo
