Avon Makeup Goodies

Thursday, August 01, 2013


I received a mysterious box filled with new Avon goodies a few weeks ago and I thought I'd share them with you. It has been a while since I've bought anything from the brand -- Avon is (was?) home to one of my favourite tinted moisturizers, though. It was the moisture tint... I think they may have discontinued it (sadface!!!) because I haven't spotted it in their booklets or on their website.

Nonetheless, they've been coming out with some wonderful products. These are just a handful of them.

Big Color Eye Pencil Diamonds

These are a shadow & liner in one. They are creamy and they glide on so easily. They're fairly smudge-proof once they set, too. Six shades are available. The two I received are Gold Rush (a warm gold) and Cocoa Gleam (a bronze brown), while the other shades are Blue Starlight, Glistening Emerald, and Amethyst Dazzle.

Price & Availability: $9.99, Avon.ca

Extra Lasting Makeup | Eye Liner

New liquid liners with flexible felt tips. They're also waterproof and are supposed to last up to 8 hours. The applicator is easy to work with... the tip is fine enough to create a thin line, but also thick enough for a bolder application. There are at least three shades: black, dark brown, and deep violet.

Pricing & Availability:  $12.00, Avon.ca

Extra Lasting Makeup | Lipstick

A long wearing lipstick infused with vitamin E and wheat protein. They're very creamy and quite moisturizing. I have two shades: fiery red (a creamy slightly orangey red) and pink peach (a satin pinky coral). The pigmentation varies, but overall, they have good colour payoff. They also have a slight fragrance that I can't quite pinpoint.

Pricing & Availability: $12.00, Avon.ca

Extra Lasting Makeup | Liquid Foundation

A long wearing foundation that is supposed to last for up to 18 hours. It has a satin finish and a sheer-to-medium coverage. It also contains a broad spectrum sunscreen of an SPF 12. It comes n a weighty glass bottle and a convenient pump.

Pricing & Availability: $15, Avon.ca
