And speaking of samples – I felt fabulous trying out one of Avon’s newest lipstick shades this weekend called Dragonfruit Blush – It’s so pretty and really takes the spotlight don’t you think? I used my Avon True Color Glimmerstick Lip Liner in Pomegranate first, coloring in my entire lip area, then topped with the Avon True Color Nourishing Lipstick in Dragonfruit Blush. This is product #640-013 and is on sale right now for $5.29 – original price is $8.00. There are 21 shades to choose from. Which is your favorite?
This lipstick is a joy to wear. It feels really moisturizing and is never drying. I hope you’ll give it a try for yourself too!

Hey everyone! I’m back with that sneak peek I promised you! A brand new beauty product from Avon!
Well, I’ll actually be revealing several sneak peeks coming up. There’s just so much fun stuffs arriving in Campaign 19, including Fall goodies.
But first I’d like to let you in on the upcoming arrival of Avon’s newest lipstick called Mattitude. It’s a liquid lipstick, and it’s packed full of intense color.
Mattitude is designed to be a better, brighter, and more comfortable to wear Matte lipstick.
Here are a few things that Andriana Ariga, Senior Brand Manager with Avon has to say about Mattitude:
Mattitude is a liquid matte lipstick that comfortably coats lips with a weightless wash of high-impact, super-saturated color. We used micronized pigments, which result in exceptionally vibrant colors. We knew we wanted to achieve unparalleled payoff and ultra-concentrated color. Some matte lipsticks can feel drying on lips. We infused our formula with poppy seed oil and vitamin E to nourish lips and ensure the most comfortable wear. This product is for anyone looking for highly saturated color or a matte finish with a zero-weight, soft-touch feel.
Sounds so fabulous! And so fun for us to choose our favorite Mattitute. Hmmmm…. I’m thinking my Mattitude is Persistent — How about you?
This is very exciting news — a new way to wear matte lipstick. To actually enjoy wearing a matte lipstick. Fantastic! I cannot wait! And I’ll be pre-ordering a demo to show you soon.
If you’re as excited about this new lipstick as I am, feel free to drop me an email at email@example.com or contact me here from the Free Sample Club contact form and leave me your email address with a request to notify you when this new Mattitude lipstick goes live on my Avon website.
Alrighty gang! Be sure to stay tuned (Thank you for the Follows!) for more exciting news and go check out all the fabulousness that’s going on right now in our new Campaign 17 that began yesterday.
I hope you’ll dig into this newest book and see what all the fabulous buzz is about, and how Avon is setting new trends when it comes to beauty and skincare.

2-6-2020 **UPDATE** Espira Calm is not available at this time. I am hoping that Avon will bring it back. Espira Restful Sleep is available, so be sure to get on the wait list for that. Also be sure to check out all of Avon’s Wellness products – Click Here! Thank you!
We all have times when we may need a little mood support, or a calm(er) state of mind. I know that I resemble that remark. Whether it be work related, hormone imbalance, or just a stressful situation, it’s nice to know that there is something that can help during those times to help you relax your body and mind without causing drowsiness or harmful side-effects.
I will tell you my personal experience here lately of not being able to go to sleep some nights. I’m not stressed – especially not about my work, I absolutely love and enjoy what I do – I believe, and it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure this out at my youthful age of 54 – that the culprit is most likely hormones, honey. I know….
I do take a magnesium supplement from time to time to relax my body so that I can sleep, but seeing that Avon has this whole natural supplement line called Espira, and that they have a product called Calm, I ordered samples to try and to also let you try – yay!
Well, as luck would have it, I could not fall asleep last night and remembered that I do have Calm supplements now, so I decided that it was a great time to try them out.
The Calm supplement comes in capsule form. I personally have a time with taking capsules, so since these are herbal, I just opened the capsule and poured the contents into a glass and mixed with about 6 ounces of water. I made sure to eat a banana first as it says to take with food. The flavor of the mixture was pretty good. It tasted like herbs with a hint of lemon. I believe that is from the Lemon Balm.
I went back to bed and soon felt more relaxed, and you know I do not even remember drifting to sleep, but I did, and slept really well. These are not marketed for sleeping, as they do not cause any drowsiness, they are meant to calm you, and they did. I guess I just needed to be able to relax in order to fall asleep. I took only 1 capsule to try out. The dosage is 2 capsules, but the one did just fine. The directions say to take 2 capsules in the morning. These are formulated to give you good mood support throughout your day.
I did some research on the ingredients to better understand what everything is and how it is supposed to help calm our state of mind. Here’s what I found out:
Firstly, the top portion of the Supplemental facts reads of these ingredients: Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Folate, Vitamin B12, Biotin, and Pantothenic Acid, all at 100% Daily Values. These are B-Complex Vitamins, so yay, we’re off to a great start! You can look each of these up and see the wonderful benefits of all the vitamin B’s.
Next, some ingredients that I was not familiar with, so I did look these up.
First is L-Theanine. I found this explanation:
L-theanine is a compound that occurs naturally in green tea and black tea, and it is also available in supplement form.
Research suggests that L-theanine might provide a range of health benefits, which may include improved mental focus and better sleep quality.
Next up is Sensoril® Patented Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera). This is a patented formula, but I did look up Ashwagandha and found this explanation:
Ashwagandha is also used as an “adaptogen” to help the body cope with daily stress, and as a general tonic.
Some people also use ashwagandha for improving thinking ability, decreasing pain and swelling (inflammation), and preventing the effects of aging. It is also used for fertility problems in men and women and also to increase sexual desire.
Okay – next is Lemon Balm (Melissa officinalis) (aerial parts) (4:1 Extract).
Here’s what I found out:
Lemon balm (Melissa officinalis) is a lemon-scented herb that comes from the same family as mint. The herb is native to Europe, North Africa, and West Asia, but it’s grown around the world.
Lemon balm has traditionally been used to improve mood and cognitive function, but the potential benefits don’t stop there. Read on to learn more about this plant’s possible healing powers. (And I did read on to learn that it helps to relieve stress, reduce anxiety, and helps ease insomnia and other sleep disorders. I knew it helped me sleep!)
Then we have Eleuthero – Don’t even ask me to pronounce that. But here’s what I found out:
There is evidence that eleuthero was first used as an herbal remedy in China some 2,000 years ago.
The plant is mostly used in traditional medicines as an adaptogen, a compound that helps the body better handle and adapt to stress. Eleuthero also acts as a stimulant, increasing nervous system function.
And last, but not least, we have Rhodiola. Don’t ask me to pronounce this one either, but here’s the info on this ingredient:
Rhodiola has long been known as an adaptogen, a natural substance that increases your body’s resistance to stress in non-specific ways.
Consuming adaptogens during stressful times is thought to help you handle stressful situations better (1Trusted Source, 2Trusted Source).
One study investigated the effects of rhodiola extract in 101 people with life- and work-related stress. Participants were given 400 mg per day for four weeks (3Trusted Source).
It found significant improvements in symptoms of stress, such as fatigue, exhaustion and anxiety, after just three days. These improvements continued throughout the study.
Rhodiola has also been shown to improve symptoms of burnout, which can occur with chronic stress.
Source: Healthline.com You can also find the links there to their Trusted Sources.
I don’t know about you, but all the ingredients sound really impressive to me. I’ve not heard of any of these herbs before, and I am thankful to Avon for introducing them to me and for making this awesome product.
Calm comes in a bottle of 60 capsules and is priced at $18.00 a bottle. You can subscribe to Avon’s Auto Replenish while you’re ordering and they will automatically send you a bottle every 4 weeks.
Now, if you are looking specifically for a sleep-aid, Avon makes a supplement called Restful Sleep. This is also all natural and non-habit forming. You may also sign up for the Auto Replenish for this product as well.
Restful Sleep contains a blend of melatonin, botanicals and magnesium. These are in capsule form and comes in a bottle of 60 and is also priced at $18.00 a bottle. (Not to be taken with alcohol.)
I hope you do give these products a try. Avon has been a trusted company for over 130 years, so I myself do trust all of their products. Avon has a full line of Espira Products including multi-vitamins formulated specifically for men, women, and children, Power Greens, protein drinks, products to block hunger, boost metabolism and more. I’ll be giving more of these nutritional supplement products a try and will let you know how it goes.
Onward and upward and cheers to great health! And a good night’s sleep is certainly necessary for health and beauty. So glad I got a good one last night – restful and calm…..
Good day everyone! Hope you’re enjoying a fabulous day where ever you are!

Did you get a chance to shop Avon’s huge Sale Sale Sale Outlet Extravaganza from Campaign 15? I hope so!
I certainly did, and I wanted to share my finds with you and let you know that I can still order some of these items for you from my back office, so you’re not out of luck if you see something you’d like to score for yourself.
I’m so in love with my new Celestial Spirits Stacking Stars Rings. I knew that I had to have these when I very first saw them. I LOVE stars, and this is a set of 2 rings with pretty little rhinestones set in each star. You will not believe that this set was only $3.99 in the Outlet — Get out! And the Linked Ring is really really gorgeous, and is full of shiny rhinestones. It was only $4.99. The goldtone is now completely sold out, but I did find one in silvertone. These came in really cute boxes as you can see in the photo. The boxes are black and came in the Avon box cover sleeves. Great for gift giving for sure, and it sure was a great gift to me! Yay!
And speaking of great gifts — I made sure to treat Hubby (Willie Coyote) and myself to some Christmas in July slippers. How fun are these? Willie looks so cute in his bright red slippers, and I am loving my Cushion Walk Memory Foam black and white polka dotted slipper sandals. They are so comfy. It does feel like Christmas when you receive new slippers! Willie’s slippers were only $8.99 and mine were $9.99, and I see there may still be some available from my back office.
And last but not least, and not actually Outlet items, but they are on sale this new Campaign — The Avon True Color Lip Glow Lip Gloss and Glimmersticks Lip Liner. These I purchased as a birthday gift for my sister. She loves wearing purple so I got her the Lip Glow Lip Gloss in Estrella, and the Lip Liner in Electric Plum. These are so so pretty that I think I will order the same for me on my next order! The Estrella Lip Glow is very shimmery and shiny and the Electric Plum is a gorgeous shade of purple. I love wearing the Lip Glow gloss. It is a full color gloss that you can wear alone or over lipstick to further enhance your lips.
The Lip Glow Lip Gloss is on sale right now for $6.29 a tube, regular price $8.00, and the Glimmersticks for Lips, Eyeliners, and Brows, are all on special right now. You can get 3 for $9.00. Mix and Match – Fabulous!

This is one of Avon’s newest perfumes, Honey Blossom. It is a bright floral with sparkling apple blossom, vibrant honeysuckle nectar and airy vanilla orchid. I’ve been trying to get samples of this fragrance for several Campaigns now. It must be very popular for the samples to be sold out.
