Happy Friday everyone! Hope you’re all set for a fabulous weekend!
I wanted to pop by and share something fun and new with you from Avon. Essential Oils! Hooray!
They have roll-on Essential Oils and also Essential Oils that you put in their new diffuser. How cool is that?
Avon is harnessing the powers of Pure Essential Oils such as Lavender, Chamomile, Grapefruit, Lemon Peel, Sweet Orange, Peppermint, Eucalyptus, and Sweet Almond Oil to create special Aromatherapy Essential Oil Blends like: Focus (Helps boost alertness and concentration), Head-Aid (Helps soothe your mind), De-Stress (Like Yoga in a bottle, it helps calm you), Sweet Dreams (Create a serene environment for restful thoughts), and Happiness (Infuse the air with joy and exhilaration).
There are definitely a few that I am wanting to try!
Here’s a link to the new Avon Pure Essential Oils Page so you can have a look around and see what sounds great to you.
How’s your relationship with you makeup foundation? Feeling good about it? Loving how it looks on your skin? I know for me, I like full coverage that is flattering and looks natural. How about you?
I’d like to share my favorite with you today. It’s Avon’s new FMG Cashmere Complexion Compact Powder Foundation. This formulation is like magic. It’s very lightweight, and not really “visible” as a full coverage makeup (as in harsh and cakey), because it is so light.
Look at my skin before makeup foundation application. I definitely can use some help to even my skin tone.
Of course the very first thing I do to prep my skin for makeup is to exfoliate and moisturize. I do not exfoliate every day. About 3 times a week. I love Avon’s Collagen Boost duo. You need to read my blog post about this pair. Soooo fantastic. My skin feels like silk after I use this set. I then moisturize with my new favorite moisturizer Physiogel Daily Moisture Intensive Cream. Wonderful, wonderful product and great for very dry and sensitive skin. I’ve also blogged about this product. For this makeup post, just a quick pic and link for you to take a peek at for yourself.
Okay, so skin’s fully prepped. Which, a quick note, I usually exfoliate and use the Collagen Booster ampules at night, so then the next day, right before I apply my foundation, I only use the Physiogel. Okay, let’s get that face looking gorgeous!
With the Cashmere Complexion Compact Powder Foundation, you can apply this wet or dry, or both. I usually do both. I use a separate makeup sponge (dampened), swirl that around in the compact, and then apply. This gives a great full coverage look. I then go back over it with the sponge that comes with the compact, either right after I apply the damp makeup, or after I’ve applied my blush, as a once over finish. As you can see in the picture above, as soon as I begin applying this, my face looks so much better, and so much more even-toned. I sometimes only apply this dry, especially if I’m in a hurry or if I’m not going anywhere that I need to get really fixed up for – like curbside pickup for example. But putting it on dry still gives me a very full coverage, and it’s so light that it just feels like my skin and not a lot of goopy makeup. It’s amazing. I love this so much I cannot even tell you. I suppose you can see by how much I’ve used in this compact already. I need to re-order so that I do not run out.
Looking fabulous dah’ling! This is my new best friend! I think it looks very natural, just like it’s my skin. Not heavily made up, which tends to age the look of our skin, but rather that my skin is just naturally flawless.
BENEFITS • Multi-use: can be applied wet or dry, and can be used as foundation or setting powder • Buildable medium-to-full coverage • Vegan collagen to keep skin looking supple and fresh • Lavender oil and artichoke and chamomile extracts provide antioxidant benefits • Amino-acid-coated pigments control shine and visibly smooth skin for perfected, all-day wear • Mirror compact with washable sponge • Good for all skin types
If you do like to use a concealer along with your foundation, well, there’s a Cashmere Complexion answer to that as well. I use this from time to time, but I usually get the exact coverage I need from the Powder Foundation.
If you’re interested in reading my previous blog posts regarding the Anew Isa Knox Collagen Booster, Physiogel, Cashmere Complexion Foundation and Concealer, and my full Perk-Me-Up Makeover, here are the links:
It’s always good to try to look your best, no matter what your age. I know for me, it lifts my spirits and boosts my confidence when I feel that I am looking my best and shining my best light. Don’t be afraid to experiment with makeup just because you may be over a certain age. We can still wear bright colors and look our most vibrant best. Try it, and see what it does for you! And I definitely encourage you to try the Cashmere Complexion Powder Foundation. I love it for my mature skin. I feel that I look flawless and not heavy or cakey, which can show even more lines. Love the skin you’re in, and take great care of it as well through your diet, exercise, moisturizing, and special attention like the Isa Knox Microneedling Skin Polisher (exfoliator) and Collagen Boosting Ampules. Your skin will thank you for it and shine bright!
Till next time, stay fabulous and follow your joy!

Hello gorgeous! Ready to make a fashion (jewelry) statement this Spring? Avon is really bringing it with Statement Jewelry and Jewelry Collections here in Campaign 6. Get ready for some beautiful viewing. I’ll provide you with links to items listed here. There are so many beautiful pieces and sets, you’ll want to be sure to view the complete Jewelry Category in case I may have missed your favorite style.
First up – you saw them, Avon’s new Statement Cocktail Rings. These are so fabulous. I’m not sure which is my favorite. I love them all. This is a very easy way to add a splash of glamour to your look, and they are listed at $10.99 each. Each one has little rhinestone accents going around the band. Avon’s calling these Glamour in Full Color – Gotta love it!
How about a Sparkling Champagne Jewelry Collection? Yes, please!
I love a silver and gold combo for jewelry. So versatile. You can wear combo jewelry with so many things and also incorporate them with other jewelry items of either silver or gold. I am linking you to the online brochure page for this set. You can click on any individual item and it will take you to that item’s page to purchase. There is an individual Long Necklace and then also a Necklace and Earring Set with the Champagne or Honey-Gold Stones. I love that watch too. And another Statement Ring, just $9.99. Cannot go wrong there.
And here’s a little inspiration for you:
Every jewelry piece in this collection has a message. Find what speaks to your soul. Love that. The whole set looks really great together. The Love Life Watch, plus the Believe, Breathe, and Love Bracelets. There are great prices on these too. Again, I am linking you to the online brochure page for these. You can click on your favorites. And do not forget those pretty little Elegant Rhinestone Bracelets pictured below there. Those are listed at $8.99 each. Those would look great stacked as well.
Let’s go Jet Set next!
Love the drama of this onyx look jewelry collection! So sleek and sexy! Each piece is sold separately, all at great prices, but the necklace and earrings come as a set. That’s a great deal for those. And, I’m sure you see a pattern by now. If I’m showing the collection page from the brochure, then yep, the link is going to the collection page in the online brochure so you have access to each piece collectively.
And, going in the opposite direction, next is a Modern Pearly Collection.
Just when you thought there couldn’t possibly be any more gorgeousness, this faux pearl jewelry collection has some really interesting pieces. There’s a pearl choker necklace (so cute), an earring pack of 3 types of earrings, a ring set with 3 stackable rings, a layered stretch bracelet, and a strap watch with rhinestone accents. Here’s your link to the brochure page. Again, the prices are so affordable on each of these pieces.
Avon is now also carrying Sterling Silver Jewelry items. I’ll link you up to see those stunning pieces. The silver jewelry is guaranteed .925 quality and are over 90% pure silver. Avon Fine Jewelry.
I hope enjoyed this Avon Spring Fashion Jewelry Parade, and that you find yourself some stunners to wear (or gift!). Don’t forget to check out all the jewelry items. There’s so much more that didn’t make it into my little blog parade today.
Till next time, stay fabulous and follow your joy!
Kick those ol’ Winter blues and get back to your glowing self, that’s what I say. How about you? Believe me, I am definitely feeling for you, being cooped up in the house while the freezing winds whip around.
Well, if you cannot get a glow from the Sun, Avon has a sweetheart of a Multi Palette that you may just fall in love with. It’s a Limited Edition Palette that they have continued into Campaign 6 from Valentine’s Day, called the fmg True Love Multi Palette. It contains four lustrous shades in a creamy, smooth, long-wearing powder for your cheeks and your eyes. You can see that I’m wearing it on my cheeks. I also put some across my forehead and a little along my chin. You can use each color individually as highlighters and blush, and one color is even a bronzer type of tone. Or, you can do like I did. I used my blush brush and swirled the colors together to get a really pretty glow for my skin. And, with this being a Multi Palette, you can use this on your eyes as well for eyeshadow. The colors have a silky, skin-hugging texture. Very luxurious.
The original price for this Palette is $32.00, but it is listed on my Avon website for $26.00. You always get a better price when you shop with your Representative. Yay! And I hope I’m your Avon Rep! Yay! I’d love to be, anyway 🙂 .
When you purchase your fmg True Love Multi Palette, you also have the chance to pick up a beautiful Lock Me In Love (Heart with Red and Gold Rhinestones) Key Chain for just $8.99 (original price $20.00).

Okay gang, I truly hope you take advantage of this special deal and get yourself a beautiful True Love Multi Palette while it’s still here. You know that once these Limited Editions gems are gone, that’s it.
When you get your True Love Multi Palette, I’d love to see a pic of your beautiful, shimmery, glowing, and smiling face! Tag me on Instagram or MeWe!

Ever had one of those days – or weeks? You can see that I certainly have. I am now on the road to recovery, thank goodness, but it’s been a very trying time for your ol’ Jfay here. I caught some type of bug on a recent road trip and it really took it’s toll on me. But in my always fighting fashion, as soon as I was feeling a bit better, and took a look at myself, I was like, “You need to pull yourself together, girlfriend!”. No doubt….
And you know what? It made me feel better. There’s just something about pulling it together and getting made up that changes my whole demeanor. How about you? No matter the situation – getting over an illness, inclement weather days, lock-downs, just whatever. When I’m feeling low, and looking even lower, it’s always great to take some time to pep myself up.
Once I made up my mind that I was ready to pull myself together, I first began with my skin. I of course was able to still wash and moisturize (barely..), but I used my Isa Knox Polisher and Collagen Booster Serum Ampules the night before to help my skin look better. I love this stuff so much. You’ll have to check out my blog post about this dynamic duo.
So, now time to get all prettied up! After washing my face, I then moisturized with my favorite moisturizer Physiogel Moisture Therapy, and knew that my skin was going to need some help in the brightness department, so I also applied VDL Lumilayer Primer Fresh for a bit of luster and more healthy radiance.
Next to foundation:
As you can see, I love my Cashmere Complexion Compact Powder Foundation. I first apply it with a damp sponge for full coverage, and then I go back over it with the dry sponge that comes with the compact to set and finish. It works just like a foundation (damp) and a setting powder (dry). There is great coverage without looking cakey or overly made up. There, already looking better. I use the C110 Cheesecake shade.
Okay! Let’s get something going on with those eyes.
Now let’s really add some color back to my face, beginning with some eyeshadow. I have to have eyeshadow.
Looks like I jumped ahead a step and put on some blusher first. I’ll show you that in just a minute.
But for my eyes, I chose the Avon Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Qaud in Purple Haze. There are 10 Quads to chose from, and they’re curated in shades that go very well together for easy application. I thought a pop of purple would go well with my shirt, and I like wearing a dark gray right around my eye to help accentuate my brown eyes.
Let’s put some color on those lips!
I chose to wear Avon’s True Color Nourishing Lipstick in Dragonfruit Blush which is very very pretty, but a little bright for the pink in my shirt, so I topped that with Avon True Color Lipstick in Frostiest Mauve. Perfect! The True Color Lipsticks are on Final Sale it looks like. So if you’d like to get some Frostiest Mauve for yourself, better get it while it’s still available. Avon is adding a lot of new lipstick formulas, which is very exciting, but I’ll miss some of my favorites.
The True Love Multi Palette is so cute and filled with 4 shimmery colors that can be used on both your cheeks and eyes. I wanted to try it out on my cheeks. I just kind of swirled the colors together and applied to my cheeks, forehead, and around my lower chin area. I really like the way it made my skin look more luminous, and certainly like I had healthy color back in my face. I’m really pleased with it, and glad I got myself this palette. I do not know how long it will be around since it was just released with the Valentine’s goodies, so if you’re interested you may want to snag one now while you can.
And my MOST favorite mascara – Love at First Lash. I couldn’t do without this. It really makes my lashes stand out with little effort on my part. I do not like to curl my lashes, and the Love at First Lash Mascara doesn’t seem to care. It does it’s job and makes my lashes stand out with just one coat. Two coats are really popping.
And here I am — feeling (and hopefully looking) like myself again.
It truly is amazing – the power of skincare and makeup.
Everything I use now for my skincare and makeup is Avon. I am not only a Representative, but a very devoted customer. Since going in all Avon, I really feel that it has been very transformative to me, for both my skin and my looks.
I love the ease at which I can use my Avon cosmetics and makeup. I like to look great, but not have to take 10 hours to get ready with so many layers, steps, and such. Know what I mean? Simple, easy, and very fine products.
Okay gang, I’m off for now. Hoping to feel better and better every day now. And this little skincare and makeup boost was just what I needed to help me go further in that direction.
I hope you take time to fix yourself up and feel fabulous too, no matter what the situation. It’s great therapy! Hey, there ya go – Beauty Therapy!
Happy Valentine’s Day goodies to you! It’s time to spread extra love! Don’t you just adore February? It always makes me think of Red. I suppose it’s because of Valentine’s Day, but this time of year is when I’m really in the mood to wear Red. Both January and February actually.
And speaking of Reds, I fell in love with Avon’s new fmg True Love Multi Palette as soon as I saw it. It’s so cute, and the colors are so pretty. It has 4 sparkly shades of Rose that you can put on your eyes and cheeks to create gorgeous looks. The very light one is a great highlighter too.
This is part of Avon’s Valentine’s Day Boutique of gifts and goodies. There is so much beauty to shop. Makeup, jewelry, candles, fragrance sets and more. And lots of Red, for sure!
I also treated myself to a new tube of Love at First Lash Mascara. This is my very favorite.
This mascara has great coverage – in just one layer, and great wow definition in two. It’s on special right now for $10.49, so a great time to refreshen your mascara.
And a third treat to myself was the glittery Parisian style makeup brushes that Avon had released for Christmas. They were on sale for 50% off, so I couldn’t resist! The glitter is loose in the handles, so these are really fun.
Are you ready for a new Avon Campaign? And a free gift offer? Yay! Free gifts are always fun.
This new Campaign has a fix for calmer skin for you. CBD Oil has become very popular for it’s calming effects, and I’ve certainly enjoyed the CBD products that I’ve tried from Avon thus far. I’ve tried the Green Goddess Facial Oil. I love it. It really does calm my skin, especially if I have a red blotch here or there. And the bath soap is very luxurious and smells beautiful!
So… for this new Campaign 5, Avon is introducing a CBD Dry Body Oil that is lightweight and nongreasy. It absorbs quickly and instantly, replenishing hydration while it also helps reduce redness and soothes irritation.
You will receive a new CBD Mini Body Balm (Jasmine scented) with your purchase of this new Body Oil or CBD Cream, or any other Veilment purchase. See the online brochure, pages 4-13 for all the qualifying products.
And also — the Valentine Boutique is up and filled with many beautiful gifts and goodies. You’ll want to be sure and take a peek. I ordered myself a couple of goodies. I’ll take a pic and show you! You still have time to order and have your gifts delivered in time for Valentine’s Day.
Look at all that gorgeousness! Woooo!! I hope you win! I’m putting my name in the hat for this one too! This Valentine bundle has fmg True Love at 1st Lash Mascara in Velvet Mulberry (lush….), a Rare Pearls Votive Candle, Dazzling Hoop Earrings, Dazzling Heart Pendant Necklace, Rare Pearls Body Lotion, VDL Creamy Stick Jelly in Gretel, fmg True Love Multi Palette, fmg True Love Cushion blush & Highlighter Set, Red Faux-Leather Watch, Avon True Colr Glimmersticks Diamonds Eye Liner in Sugar Plum, Dazzling Heart Earrings and Dazzling Heart Adjustable Bracelet.
