It’s getting so exciting with the cooler temperatures and the upcoming Holiday Season, and guess what? It’s already here in Avon Land. Pictured above are my 3 upcoming What’s New Avon Rep books, which represent the next 6 weeks of fabulousness beginning this coming Tuesday.
It all kicks off with Campaign 23 – Live Your Best Life, Every Day’s A Holiday, then Campaign 24 – Share the Wonder (New Iconic Avon), followed by Campaign 25 – Holiday Gifts of Glam.

Shine bright like a diamond – or a snowflake perhaps?
How many of you wear pins, or brooches? I know it’s been a while for me. They just seemed to fade out of fashion for quite a while, but I’ve always loved them, and I am now happily rediscovering them through Avon. Avon has always been known to have collectible and iconic brooches, and I am very happy to now own this gorgeous Snowy Shimmer Pin that is completely covered in shiny rhinestones. As Avon says, it’s an instant touch of sparkle wherever you go.
I enjoy watching America’s Got Talent, and this season I was very pleasantly surprised to see Mr. Terry Crews sporting brooches on his suit lapels. I thought that was so fabulous and so fashionable, and was so happy to see him help bring this fashion jewelry icon back into the spotlight.
When you order a pin from Avon, it arrives very nicely packaged in an Avon jewelry box. So wonderful, and great for gift giving.
On my Avon website you will find 4 Pins that are on special clearance as Avon is getting ready to usher in their 2019 Holiday Fashion Pins. The Snowy Shimmer Pin for example is now listed at $3.99, original price $14.99. You’re welcome! That is a true bargain if I ever saw a bargain.
A couple of their Iconic Pins that range from $30.00 to $40.00 are now listed at $8.99 and $14.99. You’ve gotta check them out before they’re gone.
And speaking of 2019 Holiday Fashion Pins, I took a couple of pictures for you to see from my Avon Rep What’s New Book for Campaign 24 coming up.
This one is called the Iconic Collectible Wreath Pin – It’s so beautiful. It’s goldtone with glass stones. Love the emerald color.
And look! More snowflakes! I’ve always been a fan of snowflake jewelry. It’s so Wintery and festive, and usually very sparkly, like these. As you can see, this pin is a different snowflake shape than the one I just got. Looks like the listing price on this one will be $18.99, but will be released at $9.99.
The Campaign 24 Fashion Pins will be arriving October 30th, along with some other very gorgeous and sparkly jewelries, as well as some really cool fashion jewelry for Men.
My Campaign 24 What’s New Booklet is much thicker than my other What’s New Booklets. It is stuffed full of new goodies coming up, so I will be showing you even more very soon.
Right now we are currently enjoying Campaign 22. Each Campaign lasts for 2 weeks and each usually ushers in new products and/or new special sales, etc., and each has their very own brochure and theme. (Just to give you an idea of how these Campaigns work, in case you are a new Avon fan.) You can shop the online virtual brochure, or you can shop by category. My online store usually has special deals that are not even listed in the brochure, so there are always specials and surprises everywhere. When you visit my online Avon shop, always make sure to stop by the Sales and Specials Category. And there are always special deals in the Outlet, where you can save up to 75% on fantastic items.
Okay gang, I shall close for now. I hope you enjoy shopping the Avon Fashion Pins that are on special right now and that you’ll be sure to follow my blog here to keep up with all the upcoming exciting new product releases and holiday fun that’s on the way. Yay!
Till next time, stay fabulous and follow your joy!
Happy October everyone! And happy Campaign 22! Woo Hoo!!
I’ve been very excited about this Campaign, and now it’s here, and so is Live Out Loud, Avon’s new signature fragrance.
The new Campaign 22 Brochure is now live online for you to peruse at your leisure. It’s the very same Brochure as if you received a paperback copy from me in person, so you have complete access to all the specials. While you’re visiting the Brochure page, you may like to check out the special Outlet booklets and other special insert booklet. There are always great deals in those.
And for my Free Sample Club Members, lucky you — October 1st coincided with Campaign 22 and Live Out Loud’s release, so there are great goodies headed your way very soon.
Be on the look-out for your bright pink envelope!
I hope you enjoy this new Campaign, and Live Out Loud.
There is so much coming up to share with you, my head is spinning. Avon is already giving us sneak peek access and demo access to upcoming special holiday product releases as well as the new collaborative products they have with professional hair care leader Chi and The Face Shop (Avon x The Face Shop curated Korean Beauty Products), plus new world-class international spa products. It’s all very wonderful and exciting, and I’m looking forward to sharing it all with you.
Here’s a peek for you of the upcoming C23 theme and the new limited edition Be Bold Lipstick.
The colors are so vibrant and beautiful. They are a creamy matte. I love the way they’ve done the fashion model’s lips with all 3 colors. That’s a great new look for the holiday season. And how about that sparkly tube they’re in? I also love that it says Avon, and be bold on the inside. Very nice, and very special.
Okay gang, I shall close for now, but you know very well that I’ll be back with a lot more goodness to share. Till next time, stay fabulous, and always follow your joy.
It’s all so exciting! And it smells really really pretty! This perfume is fresh and vibrant and it’s also easy on the nose. I am very sensitive to aromas, and I am able to wear this perfume very easily. It also smells quite expensive, as it should, being designed and created by noted perfumers from the prestigious fragrance house Firmenich in Switzerland.
I hope you take advantage of this special deal and enjoy wearing this beautiful fragrance
It’s a new day, a New Avon, and an empowering new fragrance to encourage you to express yourself, and live life on your own terms!
I love trying different colors, although my default setting is usually plums (like my lipstick choices), but I do enjoy a pop of blue, so I decided to get the Avon True Color Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Quad in Steel Blues and give it a try.
I really like this palette. The tones go really well with my dark brown eyes. Number 1 is a nice Cream color, very neutral, so a great coverage right under the brow area. Number 2 is a really pretty silvery blue’ish gray. It’s a shimmery look. Number 3 is a medium gray, and Number 4 is a dark navy blue color.
Here are Avon’s How-To Instructions for application, by number:
• Lightest shade (1) goes on the brow bone
• Accent shade (2) goes in the inner corner
• Medium shade (3) goes in the outer corner
• Darkest shade (4) goes on the lash lines
Follow this Link to find the Steel Blue Eyeshadow Quad (#528-781) plus all the other Avon Eyeshadow Quad options. Hover over the little Eyeshadow Icons and it will show you each palette on the larger Quad pic to your left. It’s really cool. (P.S. They’re on special right now for $5.29!)
And here I am wearing my Steel Blues Eyeshadow. I used the Number 4 dark navy color as an eyeliner. One side of the applicator has a pointy tip, so it’s very easy to line with. I do also wear eyeliners, but this color has a great stand-out pop of color on its own, as you can see. I used the Number 1 cream color right under my brow, and actually all the way down to my lid, then the Number 2 silvery shimmer color in my mid-eye area and the Number 4 navy to line and also bring out the edges of my eye lid area and then blended upward with the silvery color. I didn’t use the Number 3 gray color with this look, but I’ll most likely use it when I go for a more plum-type palette. Since I was wearing black and white, I wanted to stick with the navy and silvery tones.
It’s fun to mix and match between the Avon Eyeshadow palettes. Sometimes I stay within one color palette, and sometimes I mix in between several. It just depends on the colors I’m wearing and my mood. How about you?
And now for that sneak peek I promised you!
It’s getting so exciting – as if things have not been exciting enough in Avon Land, but I’m already receiving glimpses of holiday goodness that is soon coming our way. Hooray!!
Coming up in Campaign 23, the theme is “Live Your Best Life, Every day’s a holiday!” It is filled with holiday themed limited edition items that are so fun and fabulous. I’ll go into more detail about it all soon, but I thought I’d share the Limited Edition Dream in Color Eye Palette with you on today’s eyeshadow themed post.
Look at all of those gorgeous colors! So bright and so shimmery! That’s a definite holiday makeup must-have. It’s described as a vision of beautiful possibilities with 16 versatile shades. Looks like it will list at $15.00. Along with that there is the Limited Edition I Am Flawless Brush Set. This will have four pro brushes to get holiday-ready on the go, it says. It will include the purple pouch with a zipper closure. This set will list at $20.00. These would make fabulous gifts as well. Look how pretty those brushes are.
And there’s a lot more! I know, I know, you just have to stay tuned! Wait till you see the cute little Own the Dance Floor (disco ball) Lip Balm.
Okay, I’ve teased you enough! Haha! I will close for now, but I do promise to return with more Avon fabulousness, and I leave you with always stay fabulous yourself, and always follow your joy, well wishes.
Hey Everyone! It’s me, Jfay, if you don’t recognize me!
I thought I’d give the new Anew Neutralize Anti-Pollution Charcoal Mask a try-out last night. My skin has been feeling a bit irritated as of late, and when I read that this mask is very soothing to irritated skin, I knew this was for me. This is so awesome, it’s a mask in a stick. It’s formulated with charcoal and kaolin clay. It glides on so smoothly and easily. No need to dampen your skin. Just begin with a clean dry face, then smooth this on wherever you think you need it. This is very cooling going on – it’s really nice. And also a lot of fun!
You just simply let it sit for about 10 minutes and then you’re ready to rinse. I used a soft wash cloth to take it off. It was a white cloth, but not to worry, it all washed out with soap and water. My skin felt sooooo good afterward. So cool and refreshed. I was truly amazed. My skin felt revitalized. It’s like a mini spa treatment. The charcoal and kaolin clay absorb toxins, oil and impurities.
Here are the 2 Anti-Pollution products that I’ve tried. The Charcoal Mask Stick, and I also received a sample size of the Anti-Pollution Serum. You use this before your moisturizer. It’s formulated with botanical extracts like Matcha, Ginger and Amla to help protect your skin from environmental stressors and visible signs of pollution-induced aging.
It’s time to get skin smart. With our Anew Neutralize Anti-Pollution Collection, your skin can now be 4X more resistant to pollution—aka dirt, dust, smoke and smog. All of these pesky pollutants contribute to the look of dull skin, clogged pores, age spots and wrinkles. Our anti-pollution squad was designed as your invisible shield of protection, helping to keep skin looking healthy, fresh and youthful.
Us Weekly just called our new street smart, skin smart line “the secret to anti-aging”
That’s so fabulous! And this line is so fabulous!
And now I am feeling awesome and ready to head out for my date night with Hunky Hubby. And of course I am wearing all my favorite Avon makeup products.
For my foundation I absolutely love Avon’s Flawless Cream-To-Powder Foundation. My shade of choice is Creamy Natural. I need to order more actually, and it’s on special right now for $9.99 (regular price $14.00). It comes in a nice mirrored compact and has it’s own applicator sponge.
I also love using Avon’s Flawless Mattifying Powder. It is lighter than the powders I used to use, so it gives me a more youthful finish – Not too heavy and powdery.
And you cannot go wrong with Avon’s True Color Luminous Blush. The color I’m wearing is Rose Luster. This also comes in a nice mirrored compact, as does the Mattifying Powder. And these products are both on special right now too.
And I just got a new Eyeshadow palette called Steel Blues. I really love it. You can see I’ve also used it for my eyeliner. The applicator is great and has an end that you can use for lining. This selection is a multi-finish quad and is also on special. A great time to get all your makeup basics, hey?
I finished my eye look with my very favorite Mascara – Love at First Lash! This mascara is terrific. It is formulated with Vitamins A, C and E to condition your lashes, plus olive oil and lycopene to strengthen lashes. And it goes on great. 2 applications and my lashes are looking stand-out great! Easy to wash off too – I love that.
Then for my lips — I lined and filled in with my favorite Pomegranate Glimmersticks Lip Liner and then tried a new True Color Nourishing Lipstick Sample I have called Candy Red. I usually go for Plums, but I really like this Red. I think I can wear this one very well. That’s why I love Avon’s Lipstick Samples so much – I can try colors I may not usually try in full size.
And that’s it! From a revitalizing charcoal mask to a finished makeup look, quick, easy, and fun, all thanks to the fabulousness of Avon. Then out the door for a fun night out with my sweet Coyote Willie. I enjoyed my favorite bacon burger, Willie had chicken fajitas, and we both enjoyed a cold beer – Hooray!
Before I close, I wanted to let you know that Avon has a new Free Gift offer up for this week. You receive a free Anew Reversalist Night Cream with any $50 order using the code : SEPTFREE. This includes free shipping as well.
Also — this is really awesome — Avon is having a pre-launch special on their new fragrance Live Out Loud. I’ve told you all about this very pretty new perfume in a previous post. You can get a bottle of it now during C21 for only $25.00! Use code: LIVE. This is only till October 1st. I’ll be sending my Free Sample Club a sample of this the first of October, so you can all give it a try.
Okay lovely friends, I shall close for now, but you know I’ll be back with more Avon goodness to share with you. Till then, stay fabulous and follow your joy!
I absolutely LOVE this time of year — How about you?
The colors, the scents, the crispness in the air. It’s all so wonderful.
And here in Avon Land, we’re happy to help you welcome in the new season with beautiful Autumn colors and scents.
To begin our Fall color journey, the new Avon Mattitude Liquid Lipsticks are the perfect way to get a bold punch of Autumn lip color. These liquid lipsticks are formulated with poppy seed oil and vitamin E to comfortably coat your lips in a featherlight velvety soft finish, yet they have a quite the color coverage. These are amazing, and are on special right now for $8.99 each (regular price $12.00 each).

Now let’s talk Fall Scents! Yum – Yum – Yum! This time of year we all seem to crave warming, spicy types of aromas, so let’s see what we can set you up with here.
First of all — One of my all-time favorite Avon aromas to wear – Velvet… This aroma is so warm and decadent, made from the finest ingredients in the world. Fig and Pomegranate from the Mediterranean coastline, Rose from Bulgaria, and Velvet Patchouli from Java. It is simply irresistible…
It doesn’t feel like Fall without candles, and Avon’s bringing it when it comes to seasonal aromas. My Husband and I have already been enjoying our Autumn Candle. We chose Spiced Apple Cider – It’s smells soooo good. I think I’ll be needing a replacement soon, and Fall has just begun! Haha!
And last but not least for today’s Hello Fall post, let’s talk Autumn Berry Twist. This is totally scent luxury for your body. A very delicious berry blend of Ripened Blackberries and Luscious Pomegranate blended with the aroma of Amber Spice. Each piece in this collection can be purchased separately, so you can mix and match as you please. These include the Autumn Twist Body Mist, Body Cream, Shower Gel and Hand Cream.
What a way to welcome Fall! So much to enjoy. I truly do hope that you have a wonderful, wonderful Fall this year filled with beautiful colors and scents, and that this blog post has lifted your spirits and has you ready for the season.
Till next time, stay fabulous and follow your joy!
Hello Friends and Customers! Well, I should say that I consider all my customers as my friends. So therefore I am always truly happy when you are happy.
Yesterday I received a wonderful email from one of my friends, Beth. Now, Beth has been a friend for quite a while now. We were Etsy buddies and Etsy teammates for several years. She creates the most beautiful greeting cards, custom made too. Her company name is Pretty Bird Designs. I have several very sentimental keepsakes made by her. She’s awesome, and says she will be back taking orders for the holidays. I’ll have to keep you updated on that.
When Beth saw that I was rejoining the Avon ranks she reached out to me and told me that she loves Avon, so yay! She signed up for my Free Sample Club and I have been sending her my monthly mailings. She received the mailing with the Anew line-up of product samples, and hooray, she really loved them! I wrote to her for permission to use her feedback and she was delighted for me to do so and went on further to explain:
I’ve had sensitive skin for so many years, and now that I am older it is hard to find a moisturizer! I’m so happy!
I’ve always had great success with Avon products and I am so glad that I can continue to use them now that I am (a bit) older! lol
The weather this summer has definitely taken a toll on my skin. It’s been unseasonably hot!! I am looking forward to products that will help me!!!
I’m so very happy that the Anew products were perfect for Beth. And THANK YOU Beth for all your wonderful feedback. It is much appreciated, and I will be sure to send out more Anew samples and keep the beautiful skin goodness going.
