Most moisturising lipstick ever?

by Expert Blogger ‎01-02-2017 10:37 AM - edited ‎01-02-2017 10:40 AM

Hi everyone, 

Lips have a tough time of it... I have been trying all the boldest shades of a great new lipstick that's perfect for soothing and softening my lips.

 

My conclusion? Supreme Nourishing Lipstick is THE one for lips that need a little tender loving care this winter

Hello and Happy New Year... hope you're had a bright-eyed new start to 2017!

 

OK, full disclosure... I'm a fully-fledged mascara geek.

 

Mascara is one of my desert-island products, something I can’t be without. I need lashings of the stuff to make myself feel together in the morning. Because of this my lashes can sometimes suffer from my constant layering of product and rubbing to remove; I like chunky lashes so I usually apply a good four layers of mascara.

 

The new offering from Avon aims to help your lashes with lots of nourishing ingredients, which also make it incredibly easy to remove. I’ve been lucky enough to have tested the new wonder mascara and I thought it would be great to share my thoughts with you all.

 

Avon-Nourishing-Mascara-6.png

 

First of all I am in love with the packaging… Anything black with beautiful hints of rose gold is a winner for me. Not only does it look pretty and suit my style, it’s eye catching so it stands out amongst the other mascaras in my drawers - which is great news for my bleary eyes on a morning. The wand is a mid-sized plastic spiked one, which makes it easy to comb through your lashes without causing clumps. I also love that although it’s a little bit of a chunky wand, the position of the plastic bristles means you can turn the wand on its edge to help get the little lashes on the inner corner.

 

I told you I was a mascara geek.

 

Avon-Nourishing-Mascara-2.png

 

Now for the formula, it’s different but good different. I have used so many mascaras over the years and I have never come across a formula that feels like this one… Or is as hard to describe. When you’re coating your lashes with your first coat you can feel how silky smooth the formula is. You can almost feel it nourishing your lashes with a balm or oil. See, I told you it’s hard to explain Smiley Happy

 

Here's a single layer of mascara >>

 

Avon-Mascara-2-Coats-1.png

 

Avon-Mascara-3-Coats-1.png

 

Nice coverage, I'm sure you'll agree...

 

I’m always sceptical when it comes to bold claims of easy mascara removal, especially as I love to wear multiple layers. However, the Avon Nourishing Mascara basically melts off your eyes when you remove it, even after I put it to the ultimate test…

 

For these images I initially applied about 4 layers of mascara, then I decided to take some pictures of my applying it. This resulted in at least another 5 coats being applied as I took various pictures. In the end I had around 8-10 layers on (and by the way it hardly looked clumpy or spider like) and I sent a picture to my friends asking them to pray for my lashes when I tried to remove it. I then used a cotton pad with a few drops of Avon Anew Anti-Ageing 2in1 Cleansing Water, pressed the cotton pad over my eye for a few seconds and then swiped this away. It was all more or less gone, around 8-10 layers of mascara gone in a single press and swipe.

 

Two layers of mascara >>

 

Avon-Mascara-2-Coats-2.jpg

 

I decided to see if it was the powers of the cleanser, so applied 8 coats of a different mascara to my other eye. I then wasted about a quarter of a pack of cotton pads trying to get it off. To say I am a big fan of this mascara is an understatement, I honestly love how easy it is to remove and how healthy my lashes feel after use. I can’t wait to see what the effects are after prolonged use over a month or so, especially as they’ll need some TLC after all the mascara and false lash wearing over the party season.

Beauty of facial oil

by Expert Blogger ‎19-12-2016 3:57 PM - edited ‎19-12-2016 4:19 PM

Hi everyone,

 

OK everybody... calm down. If you're in the panic stages of festive shopping: STOP, take a deep breath and pop a facial oil into your basket.

Facial oil makes the perfect stocking filler... Why? Because they do amazing things for your skin, boosting collagen and protein to increase skin's firmness. You can use NutraEffects Miracle Glow Lightweight Facial Oil at night in place of a moisturiser... or on an evening to keep skin looking hydrated. It's suitable for all skin types, even sensitive or oily. Plus the packaging and pipette makes this look very fancy indeed.

Shimmer + sparkle + jewel shades

by Expert Blogger ‎09-12-2016 1:24 PM - edited ‎09-12-2016 2:36 PM

Hello beauty fans!

I’m Laura, the blogger behind lovedbylaura.com and I’m thrilled to be here to share with you some of my recent loves from Avon as well as my top beauty tips!

First up, it’s time to add a bit of shimmer and sparkle to your makeup for the party season. I mean, if you can’t add a splash of colour at Christmas when can you?!

 

Avon Loose Powder Makeup Tutorial 2 .jpg

 

 

 

Here’s how to create a fun, on-trend sparkly eye using Avon’s Loose Pigment Eyeshadows, available in six gorgeous jewel shades. The ultra fine mineral powders are highly pigmented and can be built up in blendable layers so you can choose how bold you want your look to be. Plus there’s a super handy brush that makes application a breeze!

 

Avon Loose Powder Makeup Tutorial 4 .jpg

 

  

Shop Loose Pigment Eyeshadow here

 

  1. Apply Avon Eyeshadow Primer to your eyelids to create a smooth base and prevent creasing.
  2. Sweep a light shadow such as shade 1 from the Sultry Shade Eye Dimensions Eyeshadow trio over the lid and all the way from the inner socket up to the brow bone.
  3. Apply a warm shade such as the Waterproof Creamy Eyeshadow Pot in Liquid Gold to your eyelid, taking it up as far as the socket.
  4. Using the Soft Bristle Blending Brush, gently sweep the Loose Pigment Eyeshadow in shade Fuscia from the outer corner of your eye in an arc across the crease and towards the inner corner and back again to gradually build up the colour. (Make sure to tap the excess powder off of the brush before application).
  5. Using the same brush apply the Loose Pigment Eyeshadow in shade Purple to the outer corner of the eye in a circular motion, blending to create a soft graduation of colour.
  6. Dampen a flat brush with some water, patting off the excess. Dip this in the Purple shade and press it against your upper and lower lash lines and outward into a small flick. The water helps to give a more concentrated colour.
  7. For extra pop apply the loose pigment eyeshadow in shade Pink to the inner corner of your eye.
  8. Complete the look with Big and False Lash Volume Mascara.

Time to get your sparkle on!

by Expert Blogger ‎07-12-2016 1:32 PM

 

Hi everyone! 

 

Are we all mega EXCITED that the party season HERE!? Whether you love them or hate them, Christmas parties mean that dressing up is is just about the LAW in December.

 

Avon-Party-Outfit-5.jpg

 

I love the process of getting ready for a party, from planning what you’re going to wear to what make-up look you’re going for. I enjoy the entire build up of excitement and the buzz of getting the chance to wear a pretty frock.  

 

What better way to get in the vibe of the festive season than to throw some sparkle on. Avon have made my life so much easier this year – and at this time of year, amongst the chaos of Christmas, you’re looking for things that make life that little more simple for yourselves. 

 

This sparkly, stunning sequined animal-print tunic dress from Avon is exactly what I am looking for this party season. I’m sure you’d all agree that it is a beautiful dress and SO perfect for upcoming Christmas parties! And who would’ve thought that an animal-print made of sequins would work so well? What a great design! 

 

Avon-Party-Outfit-8.jpg

 

I don’t know about you but I’m a bit of a wimp when it comes to the cold so I always try to incorporate a smart jacket in to my evening wear. I’ve also gone one step further and layered the tunic dress with a plain white blouse underneath. It looks more sophisticated but also it helps you keep warm! Clever, eh! This is actually one of my favourite ways of wearing dresses in Winter, so I’m pleased I can incorporate the style in to my evening wear too! 

 

Avon-Party-Outfit-11.jpg

 

The outfit needs no jewellery – perhaps a small pair of studs, a small bag to carry the party essentials, and don’t forget to put on your best dancing shoes! 

 

Are you ready to get your sparkle on this Christmas?

Celebrate Christmas with bubbles!

by Expert Blogger ‎24-11-2016 11:05 AM

 

 

Hi everyone!

 

How incredibly CUTE is this bundle of Christmas bubble bath?! I actually squealed when I saw them for the first time, it definitely got me in to the festive mood!

 

Avon Christmas Bubble Bath 2.JPG

 

Avon have got the bright and colourful packaging design spot on with these bubble baths. They’re festive, fun, and adds plenty of Christmas cheer for the holiday season. They will make a fantastic (and amazingly affordable) stocking filler for kids and big kids alike - I know I’d be sooo happy to see them in mine on Christmas morning!

 

There are wonderfully delicious scents available. The scent of Santa Claus is a spicy Apple and Cinnamon, the Reindeer design is a juicy Plum and Vanilla, and the wonderful Christmas bubble bath bauble is a delightful Sweet Vanilla. I love all three but if I had to pick an absolute favourite, it would be Santa Claus as I adore the apple and cinnamon scent. It reminds me of a classic apple pie, I can’t stop smelling it! They’re all lightly fragranced so you don’t have to worry about it being too overpowering either. It’s might even be just the right amount of fragrance to cheer up ol’ Ebenezer Scrooge…

 

Avon Christmas Bubble Bath 4.JPGAvon Christmas Bubble Bath 5.JPG

A little goes a long way, just drizzle a small amount under a warm running water to create a big peaks of soft white bubbles! They are perfect for a well deserved pamper session after a long day tackling your Christmas shopping in town!

 

Who else would love to see these in their Christmas stocking this year?

Dressing our Christmas table

by Expert Blogger ‎18-11-2016 3:22 PM - edited ‎05-12-2016 3:21 PM

It’s the most wonderful time of the year… And the most stressful too, but still one of my favourites. 

 

I do have a confession to make though, and that’s that I don’t actually cook Christmas dinner as I go to my parents’ house for the day and my mum spoils us rotten with her Yorkshire Puddings. However, it’s my job to supply the vegetables and decorate the table. This year it’s all about a the gorgeous shades of festive red on offer from Avon for our table, not to mention the adorable little surprises some of the items have.  

 

AVON-Christmas-10.png

 

First up on my Christmas decoration to do list will be to leave some mince pies and a nice warming drink for Santa - or myself, decorating is hard work after all. The Avon knitted mug is absolutely adorable, and will be the perfect hot chocolate and marshmallow stuffed partner to a plate of Santa’s favourite mince pies.  

 

 AVON-Christmas-18.png

 

For the table the Christmas Runner is not only beautifully decorated with printed ends trims, but offers a little surprise as there are tiny LED lights on the printed scenes which make it come to life. To spruce up the centre of the table, without compromising on space or height the tealights & holders are perfect. The set of 3 look perfect mixed with the set of 2 LED Tealight Lanterns to dot around the centre and add some cosy lighting to the dinner table. I love these as a centrepiece as they’re not very tall so you’re still able to see people across the dinner table (and make sure they’re not stealing the last roast potato).  

 

 

 

To accompany your beautiful festive feast Avon have the perfect little accessories for the dinner table. The Stackable Hand Painted Salt & Pepper Shakers had me oohhhing and ahhhing at how cute they are and I am determined to use them all year round. It wouldn’t be Christmas without a cake right?

 

We are not big fans of a Christmas pud so we generally opt for a cheesecake to devour. This year when we are having our usual cake slice size argument the Musical Cake Slice will come in handy to distract people whilst I take the biggest slice. The slice actually has buttons on the side which play different tunes when pressed, there’s Jingle Bells, We Wish you a Merry Christmas, O Christmas Tree and Santa Clause is Coming to Town - so something to distract everyone. 

 

AVON-Christmas-12.png

 

To finish off my AVON Christmas Table decoration I shall be placing some candy canes on the table and a whole lot of snowflake glitter - because if you can’t be over the top and glittery at Christmas, when can you?

Alpha fragrance | My first spritz

by Expert Blogger ‎13-10-2016 4:49 PM - edited ‎13-10-2016 4:50 PM

 

Hi everyone, I am happy to be here + blogging and sharing my beauty and fragrance favourites. Hope you enjoy my posts. Let me know if you want me to review something in particular.

Avon Alpha 2 .jpg

 

The thing I love most about fragrance is how it can evoke so many memories – I wore one particular scent on holiday to Barcelona three years ago, and smelling it now instantly reminds me of being on holiday. My love for fragrance is why I was so excited to try the new Avon Alpha fragrance. I’ve been testing it out, and the smell is the perfect pick-me-up to beat the autumn/winter blues… It’s just a happy scent that makes me smile.  

 

Avon Alpha.jpg

 

On first spritz, the perfume is fruity and fresh – like raspberries with champagne. It’s just sweet enough without being too sickly, thanks to the delicate infusion of honeysuckle and cashmere woods. As it lingers on the skin, it warms up even more and gets a little smoother.  

 

The bottle looks particularly glamorous shelved on my dressing table as well – the jewel tones make it look really chic. I always love the combination of red and gold – perfect for any festive gifting as well!

Hi everyone!

 

I can’t tell you how much I have enjoyed getting to know what’s available in Avon’s wide range of fashion and accessories. I have been so surprised (and off-the-scale impressed) with their brilliant and stylish offerings - from statement necklaces to trendy shoes to exclusive designer handbags!

 

AVON-OASIS-WATCH-3.jpg

 

 

AVON-OASIS-WATCH-4.jpg

 

  

I’ve relied upon Avon’s affordable accessories to complete all of my outfits this summer, and I’m super excited to style them with my Autumn and Winter wardrobe too!

 

The very latest addition to my ever-growing accessories collection is this BEAUTIFUL Oasis Watch from Avon. It has a gorgeous lilac faux leather strap, and a stunning purple floral face design with lightweight white bronze plating. It’s so pretty, I can’t stop looking at it but I particularly love it because purple is my favourite colour ever.

 

Avon-EVENING-flat-lay-2.jpg

 

 

 

The watch is another elegant and versatile accessory piece from Avon – and versatility is what we like! Right, ladies?

 

As my wrists are quite small, I was slightly worried that the watch might appear too big on me but I can tell you (and as you can see from the photos) that the Oasis watch from Avon is the PERFECT size. I’d describe it as a medium sized watch which would suit anyone!

 

The soft pastel colour makes it casual enough to wear with your work uniform, but it also looks so incredibly chic with any evening outfit too. My favourite evening outfit to wear with this watch is a sheer black ruffled top with black skinny jeans, a pair of heels and a nude coloured handbag. It looks FAB with a glamorous black outfit because the lovely lilac watch stands out so much more! As a finishing touch, stack up with a combination of bracelets for the ultimate #armparty look!

 

It comes packaged in a sophisticated black and pastel pink box, so it could be a fantastic gift for your best gal pal as well as it being a well-earned treat for yourself too!

How to style nude coloured pumps

by Expert Blogger ‎29-07-2016 4:30 PM

Hi everyone!

 

As we all know, nude shades are a big (HUGE) hit amongst beauty fans right now but what about in the fashion world? How does the massive trend translate in to fashion?

 

avon-shoes-11.jpg

 

Thankfully, we can rely on Avon to confidently ease us in to any of the latest fashion trends and this time, it’s with these fabulous pair of faux snakeskin nude coloured pumps! Skin toned items of clothing and accessories can be fairly tricky to pull off but I’ve been giving it a go with these stylish pumps from Avon!

 

 

 

I am someone who sticks to black when it comes to footwear – I always go for black only because it goes with everything – so skin-toned shoes are slightly out of my comfort zone but you really wouldn’t know it by looking at the photos! I was INSTANTLY drawn to the sandy coloured pumps and I wondered why it has taken me so long to go for anything like this before!

 

This style of shoes has been so popular and they are still very trendy at the moment but we rarely see them in this colour. I was excited to try something new and I was keen to find a way to pull it off! They have a thick, padded, bouncy sole which makes them feel incredibly comfortable, I honestly couldn’t wait to wear them straight away!

 avon-shoes-02-07--no-logo.jpg

I put myself in an outfit that felt within my comfort zone, and then I slipped into the comfy pumps for a walk in the park! I love how flattering they are on my feet and they actually give the illusion of elongating my legs because there isn’t a visually obvious cut-off point. The pumps are so versatile and I totally can’t wait to wear them with everything this Summer!

 

How would you wear these nude coloured pumps?

Yummy coconut and starfruit

by Expert Blogger ‎29-07-2016 4:14 PM

Hi beauty fans!

 

AVON COCONUT STARFRUIT 2.JPG

 

Fancy upgrading your shower time with a range that will transport you to your FAVE holiday destination? Well, let Avon’s Coconut & Starfruit do just that! With the combined scent of exotic coconut water and juicy starfruit, this exciting new range is simply Summer in a bottle! It smells incredibly lovely and it certainly brings back memories of my holiday where I spent the whole entire week lounging in the sunshine by the pool sipping fruity cocktails! Sound familiar to you?

 

This mini collection of Coconut & Starfruit bodycare from Avon is just as blissful as those wonderful holiday memories! It’s sweet, refreshing, exotic… and very addictive to use!

 

Coconut & Starfruit Shower Gel:

This is sure to make a great start to your day! The shower gel smells the strongest out of the three products, and because it smells so delicious, it is rather tempting to squeeze out more than you need. But remember that a little goes a long way. It lathers up well so you can distribute it easily to leave your skin feeling invigorated, refreshed and gently cleansed!

Coconut & Starfruit Body Lotion:

For the mornings, it’s ideal to use a body lotion that has a light formula which absorbs within seconds. This body lotion is absolutely PERFECT because it almost feels like water against your skin. It goes on to skin like a dream, giving you the long-lasting hydration that you need and as it absorbs almost instantly, you can get dressed and get on with your day ahead.

Coconut & Starfruit Scented Spritz:

Boost the scent of both the shower gel and the body lotion with this matching scented spritz. It has Vitamins E and C known for it’s moisturizing properties. You can apply this fabulous scented spritz directly onto your skin or mist is lightly over clothes for instant freshness. I adore this irresistible scented spritz and it has become one of my handbag essentials! I take it everywhere with me and I spray it whenever I like throughout the day because it really is paradise in a bottle!

My mini bedroom makeover

by Expert Blogger ‎19-07-2016 3:36 PM

Hi everyone,

 

Following the tradition of a good ol’ SPRING CLEAN, I have recently had a big clear-out of the things I don’t need any more.

 

I mean, that’s what I tell myself but the real reason for the clear-out is to make room for new homeware pieces! Yay!

 

AVON CHIC FLORALS 2.JPG

 

It has been a couple of weeks since I tidied up and I’ve had a few empty nooks to fill but I didn’t know what kind of style I wanted to go for this Summer. I didn’t want to go for a big change but I knew that by adding small bits and pieces to my home, it would give the surroundings a more personal touch. With the help of Avon, I was inspired by go for chic floral details.

 

AVON CHIC FLORALS 3.JPGAVON CHIC FLORALS 7.JPGAVON CHIC FLORALS 8.JPG

 

There are so many ways to go when it comes to florals, the possibilities are endless. But I decided to stick to one colour theme so that it would look more consistent! I absolutely adore pastel green so this was perfect for me.

 

First things first, the area I wanted to give a mini makeover to was my bedroom. I needed some storage for my ever growing make-up collection (story of my life!) and then to add some really cute details to match!

The storage solution came in the form of the sweetest little set of drawers. It has a gorgeous pastel green floral print and the three drawers now holds all of the daily make-up products I use such as primer, blusher, lipstick, lip balm, lip gloss, setting powders, concealer, eyebrow palette, eye shadow, eyeliner, mascara and… well, more lipsticks!

 

Next is something that I have needed in my life for quite some time: a jewellery box which now sits proudly on my dresser! After detangling my necklaces (eeeks!), they are now neatly and safely placed in the jewellery box! And for any additional rings (lets call it the overspill) I can display them on the BEAUTIFUL ring dish, which makes a gorgeous ornament alone!

 AVON CHIC FLORALS 7.JPGAVON CHIC FLORALS 6.JPG

Flowers instantly brightens up a room but pretty flowers need a pretty vase to go in. This chic ceramic vase (complete with bluebird) is simple yet trendy, and I love it!

 

AVON CHIC FLORALS 12.JPG

 

And finally, to tie the whole thing together, I have this cute little bell jar which has a silver  bird ornament inside. I’ve never owned anything like this but it was love at first sight! The ornament is sweet, delicate, and it looks so great wherever I place it: in my room, on my work desk, or on the coffee table!

Hi everyone!

 

I am so EXCITED to hear that Avon have collaborated with British fashion designer, Tabitha Webb, to create an all-exclusive collection which is set to launch this summer.

 

 Out and about with Tabitha Webb HandbagOut and about with Tabitha Webb Handbag

 

To make you stand out from the crowd, the collection consists of a handbag, weekender bag, purse, scarf, and umbrella. Spoilt for choice and not sure which one to go for? I’ve managed to get my hands on the handbag, weekender bag and the purse (I know I’m a very lucky gal!) so here is a closer look at them to help you decide which one to buy...

 

Handbag:

 

AVON-Tabitha-Webb-Handbag-07.jpgAVON-Tabitha-Webb-handbag-26.jpg

This gorgeous oxblood burgundy handbag looks so chic and sophisticated, I absolutely love it. It’s a structured bag that can look both formal and casual. I’ve gone for a smart casual look and the bag looks so great with the outfit.

 

There are three divided compartments (the middle one is zipped) and the strap is adjustable and detachable, which is a bonus because you can create two looks with one bag! There’s plenty of space to put all your essentials and more.

 

 

 

Weekender Bag:

 

AVON-Tabitha-Webb-weekender-03.jpg

 

I’ve been using the Weekender Bag the most, as it’s such a great bag to put in all the things you need for a short weekend trip or an overnight stay at a friend’s house. It is extremely convenient for me to have a bag like this as I go back and forth quite a lot. I get compliments on it from friends, family, and even strangers...

 

Purse:

 

AVON-Tabitha-Webb-Purse-02.jpg

 

This design is everything you want in a purse! It has a lovely gold hardware which looks so beautiful against the oxblood. On the inside, the purse is lined with a bold turquoise material which is a running theme to all of the bag designs in this collection. The purse has plenty of space to put your notes, coins, cards, and possibly even your phone on the inner compartment.
