New Year’s 2022 Spicy Makeup and Hair Goals

Hey everyone! Are you ready to ring in 2022? I know I am! I’m very excited for this coming New Year and all the possibilities it holds.

I’ve always enjoyed getting dressed up for a New Year’s party, and for this year’s look, I decided on black and gold, so to compliment this look I went with spicy eyeshadow tones, using 2 of Avon’s newest eyeshadow palettes in Minx and Maven, and a pretty (I call it a plum color, but it’s name is Wild Rose) lipstick shade to tie it all together.

The eyeshadow shades in Minx and Maven remind me of cinnamon, cinnamon sugar and nutmeg tones. These were fun to mix and match, using both satin and shimmery textures. These Glimmer Eyeshadow palettes glide on so nicely and blend together very well. I sometimes use my fingertip to apply the light shimmery shades for a nice final highlight to my eyelids. I did that this time using the lighter cinnamon shimmer shade in the Minx palette (The Minx palette is the one pictured on the right.). It adds a nice festive touch.

My lipstick choice was Avon’s Glimmer Satin Lipstick in the shade of Wild Rose. You receive a free package of Avon’s Makeup Remover Wipes right now with the purchase of 2 Glimmer products. That’s awesome. I just saw it now on both the eyeshadow and lipstick pages, so yay!

I also used my new favorite eyeliner, Avon’s fmg Cashmere 24HR Cream Eyeliner, in Pitch Black. You know I love the drama. 🙂 And my very favorite mascara, Love at 1st Lash.

Now I’m ready to go party! Woo hoo!

And I did mention hair goals for the New Year, didn’t I? I’ve decided to grow out my pixie cut this year and try something different. I still love wearing short hair, but I am aiming for something just a little longer on top. You will not believe who’s image popped in my head when I was thinking of growing out my hair. Miranda Priestly (character from The Devil Wears Prada)!

I’m 3 months into the grow-out, so you’ll be seeing my hair in different stages of growth.

2 products that I’m using are helping me tremendously during this grow-out period, and they will most likely be key in enjoying my hair longer on top. Avon’s Elastine PropoliThera Hair Serum and Volume Mist.

Avon’s Elastine PropoliThera Hair Serum and Volume Mist

These have both been great game-changers for me. My hair has gotten more and more fine over the years, plus with my natural grays/silvers, they change the texture of my hair as well, so growing my hair out really wasn’t an option till I began using these wonderful hair products.

Firstly, the Hair Oil Serum. This is made with beeswax, honey, and royal jelly. It is formulated to bring new life and shine to your hair. And it really does. When I get out of the shower and towel dry my hair, the top of my hair is automatically dry looking, and I cannot wait to apply this. It brings new life to my hair, just as Avon describes it. It helps to moisturize, strengthen, protect, and smooth my hair. If you have gray or silver hair like me, then you know that around the sideburn area our hair tends to fuzz up, and this really helps diminish that. So wonderful!

After I apply the serum (oh, and a little tiny dab of the serum goes a long way), I then spray in the Volume Spray, especially to the front and top of my hair, and rub/distribute that in. This is made to nourish thin, dry hair. It’s made with honey, propolis extract, royal jelly, plus hydrolized collagen to infuse hair with moisture for lustrous volume. And that’s definitely what I need – volume. And that’s what it gives me – volume. It is not heavy or sticky in the least. I cannot even tell that it’s there till I dry my hair, and my hair is full and feeling awesome.

I cannot speak highly enough of these 2 wonders, except that they are total game-changers for me in my hair enjoyment and being able to now be brave to try a longer style, so yay! I am going to be trying the shampoos as well. There are 2 types of shampoo/conditioner combos and I want to try each. There is a repair shampoo and conditioner and a volumizing shampoo and conditioner. I am on the wait list for the volumizing duo and have the repair duo on their way to me now. I’ll definitely let you know how I enjoy each.

I hope you have really fun New Year’s plans. Stay safe, and I’ll see you in 2022! Let me know your beauty goals for the coming New Year. Always feel free to comment and share here.

Till next time, stay fabulous and follow your joy!

Avon Lipstick Samples, Look How Cute!

Iconic Avon, no doubt. Avon Lipstick Samples have been much loved by everyone since the dawn of time it seems. They left us for a little while getting a facelift, but now they are back, in their full glory.

I say they’re back, and they are, but they sold out faster than I could post that they were available again. I told you they are much loved!

So, what I am doing is gathering pre-orders so that we can be sure to catch the next wave. These are expected to be available in Campaign 3. I’m on the Wait List. We’re in Campaign 2 right now. It just began today, so it will be 2 weeks before the Lipstick Samples are expected, however, sometimes they send me notification early so that I can jump on the opportunity, so if you want in, send me a note asap so you can get yours pre-ordered.

I will be placing my order for Lipstick Samples as soon as I receive word that they are available again.

The price per pack of 10 is $8.25 + $3.50 shipping. These will be shipped directly from me to you once I receive them. Shipping for 2 packs is $5.00. If you’re wishing to order more than that, just let me know and I’ll get a shipping cost for you. If the price changes on the samples, I’ll also let you know.

Stop by and see me sometime in my new digs. I have a personalized Avon profile page with my favorite items and recommendations. Here is the link:

I hope you have a very Merry Christmas! Thank you for all your friendship and support this year!

Quick Tip: Quick Makeup Touch-Up

You know, as you’re going out during this holiday season, there’s bound to be some sneezing or nose-blowing going on. I know.. that’s not a very glamorous subject to speak about, but hey, it happens to all of us, and this did happen to me as I was getting ready. I had just applied my makeup, and yep, a sneezing fit hit. With our Texas temperatures roller-coasting from the 80’s to the 40’s and back and forth, my sinuses do not know what’s up most of the time. 🙂 But anyway, this had me reaching for my Cashmere Compact Powder Foundation for a much needed red nose touch-up. This works so well since it is both a foundation and a powder. Just a quick glide over and it covers right back up with no need for extra powder, so this is a handy little compact to take out with you for any touch-ups, plus if you’re traveling it is an all-in-one easy full coverage foundation makeup. I love this compact so much. I use this (dry) with the liquid formulation of this same line for a great flawless finish, and I also use it alone (with a dampened sponge) for a quick and easy full coverage application. It is not cakey in the least. It is like magic to me.

My shade is C110. Click on “Try This On” under the product picture to find your perfect shade.

fmg Cashmere Compact Powder Foundation from Avon – $30.00

Worth every single penny…. period.

Cheers and happy touch-ups!

Glimmer Up Your Look with Gold and Jewel Tones

Happy Holidays everyone! How are you doing? I hope you’re having a fabulous time!

Are you getting ready for all your holiday parties, or fun evenings out?

I love gold and jewel tones this time of year. How about you? Avon has some really gorgeous makeup colors and jewelry to add that special touch to your holiday look(s) this year.

How stunning is this new Luxe Links Bold Necklace that just arrived? (UPDATE: SOLD OUT, but be sure to check out all of the fabulous necklaces now available. Avon adds new jewelry every Campaign.)

Beautiful gold tone necklace and jewel toned eyeshadow and lipstick.
UPDATE: SOLD OUT Luxe Links Bold Necklace

It’s so pretty with all the sparkling accents! This is a great statement piece that I will most likely continue to wear year-round. It is 16 3/4″ in length, with a 3 1/2″ extender. I used the extender to wear this with my crushed velvet shirt with round neck-line. It worked perfectly, and really dressed it up.

Avon has some super gorgeous jewel toned makeups this season. The new Mistress fmg Glimmer Eyeshadow Palette has a perfectly gorgeous array of shimmery jewel tones.

This picture does not even do this palette justice. The colors are soooo beautiful in this quad. You really have to see it in person. This is $11.99 and you receive a free Eye Serum with your purchase. There are 10 different palettes to choose from in this line. I’ve had the privilege of seeing 8 of these in person. They all are really fabulous. fmg (Fashion – Makeup – Glam) Glimmer Eyeshadow Quads. New, from Avon.

Now, if you’d like to add even more sparkling glimmer to your look, you may like to try out the new GlimmerKiss Lipstick.

This is very sparkly and very pigmented. It’s a great idea to line your lips before applying this, for sure. This is buildable, and you can go full on bold metallic if you like. There are 3 stunning shades to choose from. You’ll definitely stand out in this formula. It doesn’t feel gritty either. I wore it out on a double date holiday dinner night and it performed very well. This is $9.99 a tube and you receive a free set of Nail Stickers with purchase right now. GlimmerKiss Liquid Lipstick from Avon.

I hope you find the perfect Avon jewelry and makeup items to complete your holiday look(s).

Enjoy all your festivities, be safe, and stay fabulous!

Avon Grand Opening Party Celebration

Avon Lipstick Samples are Back!

Are you guys as ga-ga over Avon Lipstick Samples as much as I am? Nothing speaks iconic Avon to me like those cute little lipsticks.

Do you know, Avon Lipstick Samples are what lead me back home to Avon? Sure did! I was on a quest to purchase some and finally decided to rejoin Avon so that I could get them for myself. 🙂 So happy they did, I am having the time of my life and even more in love with Avon and Avon beauty products than ever before.

But, I digress, we’re talking Avon Lipstick Samples. Since Avon has undergone a major makeover themselves, which includes a lot of their product lines, their lipsticks also underwent a major makeover and the name of their main lipstick line changed to fmg (stands for Fashion – Makeup – Glam) Glimmer Satin Lipstick. With that change, their Lipstick Samples went, and I was sad, but I held hope that they may one day return in their new glory, and that day is now.

I was perusing my Avon Campaign 1 What’s New Book and in the Samples Section, there they were — New! fmg Glimmer Satin Lipstick Sample Pack. They are arriving in a pack of 10 little miniature lipstick tubes all in different shades to try. I love to take these little beauties along with me in my purse. They are perfect for touch-ups while out on the town. They’re also great to try out different shades without having to commit to a full-sized tube up front.

I do not know if Avon will have these up for sale on our new sites or not. These are usually only available to Representatives to purchase, but I have seen them for sale on my site before, so that’s not totally ruled out. But for now, I wanted to let you know that if you’d like an Avon Lipstick Sample Pack (or Packs), I’ll be happy to order and ship them to you.

Feel free to contact me for purchasing details.

As soon as our new sites are up (they are scheduled to be up some time today), I will be ordering some sample packs, so let me know pretty soon if you’d like to get in on this order. I order once a Campaign.

Okay gang, I’ll let you know as soon as my new Avon website is up and running. I’m very excited to see it!

Avon’s New Website will be Live Thursday, December 9th!

Hey everyone! I wanted to keep you all updated on Avon’s new website launch. It looks like they’re planning to go live this Thursday, December 9th. I believe around noon ET. You can sign up with your email to receive notification when it is launched. I’ve signed up already. I’m very excited for this new website experience, and I hope you are too!

Remember, you will receive 10% off your order during the first 72 hours of the new website launch using this code: HOORAY10.

I’ll see you back here once it’s all launched and I’ve had a chance to scope everything out and check out my new digs 🙂



(I’ll still be at this address.)

The New Avon Website is Almost Here!

Huge announcement everyone!

Avon is getting ready to launch a whole new website experience for us all. We’ve been gearing up for this change for a while now, so it’s very exciting to know that the new site will be live on December 9th.

You will still find me at, so that will remain the same. The only anticipated hiccup in this change over is that my Avon store will be down from this coming Monday, December 6th till the launch on Thursday, December 9th (2021).

I encourage anyone who is wanting to do some shopping to go ahead and get what you’re wanting/needing by Sunday, December 5th so your order can be processed and shipped before my store closes.

We are in Campaign 26 right now, with Cyber Monday freebies still in play as well as the free Glimmer Mega Eyeshadow Palette offer that I showed you yesterday.

When we return December 9th we’ll be beginning Campaign 1 and these deals will be gone. But! Once our new websites launch, everyone who shops during the first 72 hours of our new website launch will receive 10% off with this special code: HOORAY10. So be sure to mark that date and code on your calendar so that you can do some last minute Christmas shopping. You can check the Avon Holiday Gift Guide for shipping dates and times of arrival. Just scroll down to the bottom of the page to find the Holiday Gifting Faq. It’s listed under question #1.

Okay, I think that just about covers it. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me here on my Contact Jfay Page.

Can’t wait to show you all my new Avon store! Yay and Cheers!
