Celebrating My 3 Year Avon Anniversary!

You know the saying, that time flies when you’re having fun? Well, it truly does!

I cannot believe it’s already been 3 years since I signed up to become an Avon Rep. I initially signed up because I wanted to buy the little sample lipsticks, and now look what’s going on!

Avon has made a very positive impact on my life. Especially now in my mid-late 50’s, going through Menopause, and trying to feel good about myself. Avon has kept me interested in keeping myself looking the best that I can through healthy habits, makeup, and now growing out my hair, with the help of their wonderful hair treatments for thinning hair.

I am a true testament to Avon being there for everyone at every age. My very first skin care regimen in my teens was Avon, and Avon is still my skin care go-to to keep my skin looking it’s most youthful best.

Thank you Avon, and thank you to all my Avon family, including my Avon team, and especially my Avon friends and customers. I always call my customers friends, because that’s what each of you mean to me. I love working with each of you personally to help you find the perfect Avon beauty products to enhance your lives.

Cheers to you, and cheers to 3 wonderful Avon years!

Happily Your Avon Lady,

Johanna (Jfay) Bustamento

Welcome to My New Personalized Avon Store

Hello everyone! Happy Monday to you!

Ready for an exciting new shopping experience?

I’ve been a busy little bee buzzing around getting things all ready for you at my new Avon website. To refresh memories, Avon just launched a brand new website, and with this new website, they have given us Reps our own personal store-front to customize with our favorite Avon product features and recommendations, as well as a welcome video. It’s really awesome. I’m loving the concept quite a lot, and I hope you will too.

Here’s a screenshot of my new Avon store-front. You will see me – there I am! 🙂 I was able to name my Avon store (as you can see atop), let you know why I love selling Avon, and you can find my contact info very easily.

I can now upload photos of my favorite Avon products and share with you a bit about my experience using each. Use the side arrows to scroll through the featured items.

I also have a Recommended Just for You section in which I can post products right on my store-front for you to easily add to your bag.

Which, under the Featured Product pics and descriptions I also pin the product(s) right beneath so you can easily add them to your bag right there.

It’s so awesome! It’s a wonderful extension of my blog here. When I feature products, I can then go directly to my Avon store and feature them there for you to easily find. Plus if you happen to miss a blog post here, you can head over to my store and still find the featured item(s).

Now, if you follow my original Avon store link: https://youravon.com/mybeauty, you will arrive at the Avon home page. You will see me at the top, so you’ll know that you are still shopping with me. Always look for the rep code: mybeauty in the url. That is my Representative code. If you see that and my name and picture, then you know you’re with me.

You can click on JOHANNA’s Online Store at the top right, and you will find my personalized store-front when you follow that link.

(Note: This blog has been around way before the new website launch, so if you land on an older post, the link may no longer be available. I have tried a couple of the older links, and although the product page is no longer available, you still land in my Avon store, so you can still easily find what you’re looking for, or contact me and I’ll happily send you a new link to the item for which you are searching.)

I truly hope you enjoy this new concept. I am always happy to help you find the perfect Avon beauty and skin care products for your individual needs and style.

Cheers, happy browsing, and happy Avon shopping!

Avon Love, and Family Stories

After recently posting about Avon family traditions and my first memories of using Avon skincare from an early pre-teen age, I’ve been blessed to have some of my customers (whom I call friends) share their stories with me, and also a friend who was very excited about her Avon purchase shared a pic of her beauty haul, so I thought I’d share all of this love and fabulousness with you.

In the spirit of sharing Avon family stories, I have another fond memory from the 1990’s when my Son was very young. I sold Avon back then as well, and he and I would go door to door throughout our neighborhood. One of my neighbors still speaks of meeting us for the very first time when he and I came by to visit and leave an Avon book. Very fun and fond memories.

My friend Phyllis shared this with me on IG:

Like you, I grew up with Avon too, as my Mom was an Avon Lady and went door to door selling it!

I think that’s so wonderful that she has a memory of her Mom being an “Avon Lady”. That’s definitely what we were called back in the day.

Here are a couples of notes I received from my friend Mary via email. These melted my heart…

I couldn’t resist the Mini Lipstick Kit. When I was little (awhile ago, as I’m 69!), maybe about 6 or 7, my mother sold Avon, and she had these little sample lipsticks—a tiny ‘tube,’ about an inch high, with about 1/3” of lipstick. She gave me some, and I absolutely loved them. The colors! That clinched, then and there, my life-long love of lipstick and cosmetics. So there was no question about my ordering those mini lipsticks!

Apart from the ones she gave me, I used to love to just sit and look at all the colors in her collection of little lipstick samples for her ladies. And I remember going with her to deliver orders, with her all dressed up in her suit (this was the 50s!). I thought she looked so beautiful.

I love being reminded of that!

That is so awesome, and I am truly honored to now be their Avon Representative and help carry on the tradition and beauty products that we all love so much.

And speaking of Avon beauty product love. Check out this beauty haul that my friend Sue recently received!

All this for $60.30! There is another eye shadow hidden in there (total of 2). LOVE it all! Thank you Jfay!

That’s so awesome! Thank you Sue!

I truly love hearing your Avon stories, and seeing your Avon pics, and I hope to hear and see more. Feel free to share them with me. I’d love to share more of them here on my blog as well.

Be a Part of the Best Beauty Story Ever Told

Avon has been empowering women economically for 135 years. Can you believe it? That is so wonderful. And it’s also wonderful that many of Avon’s customers and Representatives have learned about Avon from their families, and have then passed on the tradition.

I know for me, I remember Avon from an early pre-teen age. My Mother and Grandmother always used Avon. My very first skincare regimen (purchased by my Mother) was Avon. I remember going on a church trip with some “older” teenage girls whom I looked up to very much, and I took my skincare kit with me. They were very impressed that I was taking such great care of my skin at an early age. I’ve always remembered that. It made me feel so grown up.

So, definitely, Avon has been a family tradition for me and a part of my life since my pre-teen years. I love it so much, and enjoy sharing my passion with all of you. Whether you’re one of my fabulous customers, or an Avon Representative signed under my mentorship, I’m always happy to be there for you in your Avon journey.

If you are not yet a member of the Avon family, I invite you to join and be a part of the greatest beauty story ever told. Avon has evolved so much and kept up with all the latest trends, as well as now making new trends in beauty and skincare.

Avon enables you to earn extra income while doing what you’re passionate about. Avon is now also making affordable healthcare accessible, as well as helping you to further your education. Avon perks are certainly wonderful too. So many discounts are available to Avon Representatives from major companies, your mind will be blown.

I invite you gentlemen to join as well. There are many men who have Avon businesses. There are also many husband/wife teams who succeed tremendously with a thriving Avon businesses.

Avon:  The best beauty story ever told.

Till next time, my friends, stay fabulous and always follow your joy!

Before and After Makeover: Flawless Skin Makeup Look Part 1: Cashmere Complexion

Oh, you know you’ve still got it! And with the help of some wonderful friends, we can still show it!

When I speak of friends, it’s our little makeup helpers that can really make a huge difference in how we present our beautiful selves to the world.

I am doing this before and after makeover series at the age of 56, showing my no makeup natural self, so that I can hopefully encourage you to look and feel your very best, always, no matter your age. Hey, if I can do it, then definitely, so can you!

I will tell you right away before getting started, that I prefer an easy skincare and makeup routine. I do not like to take a million steps to get myself put together and ready to go, so if you’re like me, you may really relate to my particular style of beauty routine and products that provide the coverage I require, perfectly and easily.

You ready? Let’s go!

This is a 3 part series. Part 1: Cashmere Complexion Foundations, Part 2: Skincare Before Makeup Application, Part 3: Completing the Makeup Look for a Radiant Finish

I know parts 1 and 2 are backwards, but I didn’t think you’d appreciate looking at me through one complete series without any makeup, so I completed my foundation first then went back to show my skincare products and share my routine.

Let’s chat Cashmere Complexion Longwear Foundation.

I just told you that I do not like to take a million steps to put myself together, so I really look for a foundation that has great coverage so that my skin looks flawless and gorgeous in 1 step. Cashmere Complexion does that for me. I normally use the Cashmere Complexion Compact Powder Foundation only, but decided to give the liquid formulation a try, and I really love it. I’m still using the Compact Powder Foundation as well, you’ll see in minute.

I really like the application wand. I just dot it all over (my cleaned and moisturized face – I cover that in Part 2), and then distribute and blend with a dampened sponge.

You can see that it gives me full coverage in just one sweep. My skin tone is evenly balanced. All my ruddiness is eased immediately. This is a very light formula. It doesn’t feel like I have anything on my skin. It’s really beautiful and fresh feeling.

Here is Avon’s official description:

Get cashmere-soft skin that looks as effortlessly beautiful as you do. Available in 30 matte shades to suit a wide range of skin tones and undertones, this liquid foundation visibly blurs pores and lines for 24 hours of complexion perfection. 1 fl. oz.

BENEFITS
• 24 hours of comfortable, breathable wear
• Full, flexible coverage with a soft-focus matte finish
• Visibly blurs pores and fine lines for a smoother complexion
• Soft-focus and shine-absorbing qualities help maintain a smooth matte finish
• With antioxidant botanical extracts, artichoke and butterfly lavender (non-GMO)
• Soft-coated pigments comfortably hug skin, providing maximum coverage and lasting wear
• Water-resistant
• Ideal for all skin types
• Vegan
• Fragrance-, paraben-, sulfate- and phthalate-free

I use shade Shortcake (C) #715-466. There are color charts to help you find your perfect shade based on your skin’s undertone – Cool, Warm, or Neutral, plus your skin color – Light, Medium, Dark.

Now, after I apply my Longwear Foundation, I always like to set with a powder, and there is none better (in my opinion), than my dear friend Cashmere Complexion Compact Powder Foundation.

I love this so much! And you know what? I really like using the combination of the Longwear Liquid along with the Compact Powder Foundation as a great finishing touch. This can be worn as a foundation (damp or dry) alone, so it is not flaky or dry, and it has awesome coverage on its own, so hey, super flawless looking skin is a very achievable end result – and very quickly too.

If I’m in an extra big hurry, I just grab my Powder Foundation and give my face a quick once over and I look great to go.

Here is Avon’s official description of this amazing Compact Powder Foundation:

Powdered luxury. Create a flawless, silky-smooth complexion with this weightless 2-in-1 powder foundation, featuring a luxuriously soft formula with a long-lasting soft-focus matte finish. With amino-acid-coated pigments to control shine and visibly smooth skin, and vegan collagen to keep skin looking supple and fresh. Can be applied wet or dry, as a foundation or setting powder with buildable medium-to-full coverage. Mirror compact and sponge for seamless touch-ups.

I use (C) 110 in this formulation. There are also color charts here for you to easily find your perfect shade.

I hope you enjoyed this quick and easy flawless skin foundation makeover with great assist from my Cashmere Complexion friends, and that you’ll stay tuned for the next 2 parts in this Before and After Makeover Series on Jfay’s Beauty Blog, for a flawless skin makeup look.
