If you’re not yet one of my Avon Email A-Listers, stick around till the end of this post and I’ll let you know how to get in on these freebies too.

Okay, so first of all, here is a link to the Campaign 6 online brochure: Best of Beauty 2023. When you visit, you will see the brochure cover. Click on the right side arrow to open the brochure to browse and shop. Upon your first click you will open up to pages 2-3. On page 3 you will see the Luxe Lashes Duo free gift offer. You will receive this 2 piece waterproof mascara and lash curler set free with any $25.00 makeup purchase from items listed on pages 4-15. This is a $24.00 value gift.

So, all you have to do is continue scrolling through the brochure pages to see all the makeup items that are eligible purchases for your free gift. No coupon code is needed, thus, when you receive the free gift codes from me, you can use one of the codes (gift of your choice) upon checkout to receive both free gift offers (1 from me, and the Luxe Lashes Duo) as the Luxe Lashes Duo will automatically be added to your order as a free gift. Got it?

I’ve sent a coupon code for a free Meadow Candle and also a coupon code for free Veilment Care Soothing and Relaxing Lavender Bar Soaps. You can only choose 1 to use with your purchase, but I like to send you at least a couple of goodies to choose your favorite from.

There are a couple of really nice beauty bundle deals going on during Avon’s Best of Beauty 2023 (along with up to 30% off lipsticks, oh yeah! Check out the Glimmer Satin Lipsticks on sale for $7.69 (reg. price $11.00 ea.).

First up is the Best of the Best 4-Piece Bundle:

Best of the Best Beauty Bundle deal from Avon.

This bundle includes:

    •   Best of Beauty Set includes: fmg Glimmer SuperShock Volumizing Mascara in Black, .338 fl. oz
    •   Birthday Balm Lip Crayon in Surprise, .01 oz. net wt.
    •   fmg Glimmershadow Liquid Eyeshadow in Moonstone, .07 fl. oz.
    •   fmg Glimmer Cream Eye Liner in Blackest Black, .01 oz. net wt.

This is a $44.00 value for just $12.99. So fabulous!

Here’s another fun bundle that I am definitely snagging for myself:

fmg Glimmer Lipliner 4-Piece Set:

The fmg Glimmer Lipliner 4-Piece Set.

This bundle includes:

    •  fmg Glimmer Lipliners in Honey Peach .01 oz. net wt.

This is a $36.00 value for $6.99! Every color you will need this Spring and Summer. So awesome! I love using these lipliners to completely color in my lips before applying any lipstick or lip balms. It really adds extra depth of color and longer staying power to any lip color look.

Now, one thing I’d like to mention to you about scrolling through the Avon online brochure, especially if this is your first experience doing so – as you look through the pages, you’ll notice little pink shopping bags that come onto your screen. You click on those to bring up a pop-up that lets you add that item to your cart, or from the pop-up you can click to “View the Product Details”, which will take you to that product’s in-depth information page where you can also add it to your cart from there as well.

Now, if you click on the little white circle by the pink shopping bag icon, you open the Virtual Try-On Tool, in which you can virtually try on the makeup items from your phone or computer. This is such an amazing tool. Very easy and very fun to use. It looks real!

On pages 16-19, you will find all the lipstick items that are up to 30% off.

Glimmer Satin Lipstick from Avon.

I have my eye on the shade Plum Blossom from the fmg Glimmer Satin Lipstick lineup. I tried the lipstick sample and love it, so I’m on the waiting list now for that. It must be popular for this Spring. It’s really pretty! (Reg. price $11.00, now on sale for $7.69.)

One last thing I’d like to mention to you is that Avon has just introduced new Matte Eyeshadow Quads to their Glimmer Eyeshadow lineup. I am totally loving their newest quad just released called Bombshell:

Avon's newest matte eyeshadow quad, Bombshell.

Such beautiful colors!

Avon Best of Beauty 2023!  Great deals, and free gifts.

OMG! Avon’s Blush Finally Got It’s FMG Make-Over!

Avon's fmg Glimmer Powder Blush.

Hey gang! How’s everyone doing today? I hope very well!

I don’t know if you’ve noticed or not, but all of Avon’s “staple” makeup items have recently undergone a make-over. Avon’s makeup brand was called True Color, but they’ve changed that to fmg Glimmer (fmg stands for Fashion – Makeup – Glam), and the packaging has changed as well. It was all black, but now it’s a really pretty red (except for the foundation and liner products), and most makeup items arrive in a pretty red box, like the blush pictured above.

I believe the blush is the last one to finally get it’s makeover. Now, I did notice today that there is still some True Color Blush available on my Avon website. It is listed for $5.99 and they seem to be in more of the “earth”, or “earthy” tones. The new fmg Glimmer Blush colors are in more vibrant pink tones and list for $9.99. There are 3 shades to choose from: Cranberry Crush, Petal Pink, and Pink Passion (which is the one I chose, pictured above).

Here is Avon’s official description:

Get cheeky with an instant pop of color and radiant, youthful glow. Richly pigmented, weightless formula with ultra-fine pearl for added dimension and vivid payoff blends effortlessly. With skin-nourishing vitamin E for antioxidant benefits. 28.oz. net wt.

•   Silky, pressed powder hugs cheeks 
•   Creates buildable coverage and soft matte finish

•   With brush, bently apply to the apples of the cheeks and move outward in circular motions towards the temples. 
•   Without brush, use a clean ring finger to apply to the apples of the cheek with the tapping motions and blend into the skin.

•   To add more dimension, try stacking/layering two shades of blush.
•   Pair with our fmg Blush & Contour Brush for flawless application.
•   Experiment with different shades to give your skin a different type of glow. ​​​​​​

If you are in need of a blush brush, here is a link to all of Avon’s Beauty Implements on my Avon website, and here is a link to just the fmg Blush and Contour Brush.

I hope you have fun choosing your new favorite blush color for Spring! I’m really loving the fresh pinks for the season, how about you?

Talk with you again soon!

It’s a Lip Balm, It’s a Lipstick, It’s a Lip Gloss, It’s Birthday Balm! (Plus Travel Pics!)

Birthday Balm Lip Crayon from Avon is like a lip balm, lipstick, and lipgloss in one!

This little Birthday Balm Lip Crayon has been one of my best friends during our recent road trips. It’s like a lip balm, lipstick, and lip gloss all in one.

During our latest trip, this was the only lip color product that I took along with me. I can wear this with or without lip liner, depending on the depth of color desired. During my travels I did not use any lipliner, but pictured above, I am wearing this with a Merlot Lip Liner.

It’s so easy and convenient to carry in my purse, and any time my lips need moisture, or a bit of color, it’s all there in a quick swipe, plus it has a pretty glossy finish. I love it! The color I use is called Fine Wine. There are 6 shades to choose from, including Lovin’ Life, PYT, Birthday Suit, Surprise!, Fine Wine, and Birthday Post. Which is your favorite?

Birthday Balm Lip Crayon by Avon is available in 6 shades.

The price on my Avon website is 10.99 each, so be sure to snag several for your Spring and Summer-time trips!

And — as promised, here are some pictures of the hidden Speakeasy we visited during our recent trip to Navasota, Texas! We had a great time visiting Navasota’s restored historic downtown area where the old buildings have been turned into cute shops, boutiques, eateries, and a gorgeous hotel (P.A. Smith Hotel where Hamer’s Speakeasy is located).

Keeping Silver and Gray Hair Silky, Shiny, and Manageable

Biosilk Silk Therapy helps keep hair silky, shiny, and manageable.

The struggle is real people!

Hey there! How are you today? I hope doing very well!

If you’ve been growing out your natural gray or silver hair like I have, then you definitely know what I am talking about. Silver and gray hair has a mind of it’s own, sometimes minute to minute. But there is help, thank goodness!

Avon has a line of hair care made from beeswax, honey, and royal jelly called Elastine PropoliThera, that I’ve been talking about here for a while, that I love, consisting of shampoos, conditioners, treatments, etc., which I am continuing to use, and I have also added a new item to my hair care regime, which has really brought in extra silkiness and shine. You may have heard of this product before, it’s Biosilk Silk Therapy.

Biosilk Silk Therapy is wonderful for gray and silver hair.

Biosilk Silk Therapy is made with silk proteins that help strengthen, moisturize and improve hair’s elasticity. 

Silk protein… The natural wonder for hair
• Strength – One of the strongest fibers in the world, silk contains 17 of the 19 amino acids found in hair; it bonds and builds hair from the inside out.
• Moisture – Holds up to 2.5-3X its weight in moisture, to improve elasticity.
• Shine – Provides unparalleled shine due to its triangular molecular structure.
• Protection – Helps shield hair from UV rays, heat, humidity and other environmental stressors.

I use the Biosilk Silk Therapy after shampooing and conditioning. I first towel dry my hair then apply the Elastine PropoliThera Hair Oil Serum, then the Biosilk Silk Therapy. And as you can see pictured, I also spritz in some Propoli Thera Volume Spray if I desire a little extra lift. For my picture above, I did not use the Volume Spray, only the 2 serums, for a sleeker look.

I used these products right before a recent trip, and they really kept my hair looking it’s best. I shampooed and fixed my hair the night before our trip and then set it with rollers the morning of, before we left. I had planned to shampoo and fix my hair again that evening, but was too tired by the time we got back to our hotel room after dinner and visiting a very fun hidden Speakeasy. 🙂 (I’ll show you some pics in my next blog post.) But anyway, the next morning I was expecting a possibly frizzy situation and having to shampoo and fix again before heading out to explore, but you what? My hair still looked really great. It was soft and silky, still had body, and my style still looked fresh. So, all I had to do was brush and go. That hardly ever happens since I’ve been growing my hair longer from my past pixie style. The combo of the Propoli Thera Hair Oil Serum made with beeswax, honey, and royal jelly, combined with the Biosilk Silk Therapy made with silk protein, really makes a difference. I was only using the PropoliThera Serum and it is wonderful, but once I began using it in conjunction with the Biosilk, it’s changed my hair game to one with even more positive results, and the Biosilk definitely puts the shine back in my hair. A definite added bonus. My silvers start shining as soon as I apply it.

I hope you give this winning combo a try for yourself, whether or not you have silver or gray hair. Let me know if you do, I love to hear your feedback!

Natural Skin Care Favorites from Avon

Natural Skin Care Favorites from Avon, including The Creme Shop Overnight Lip Therapy Masque, The Face Shop Rice Water Bright Foaming Cleanser, and Farm RX Super Greens Multivitamin Moisture Cream.

Hello Everyone! How are you today? I hope you’re doing very well.

I thought I’d share a few of my favorite natural skin care products with you that I’ve been enjoying from Avon. I’ve always leaned toward natural ingredients, and it seems the more mature I get, the more I appreciate natural formulations for all my skin care products, especially those that I apply to my face. Avon has been adding more and more natural products, and has broadened their Farm RX Clean Beauty line.

Pictured above you’ll see products that I am currently using from Avon, including The Face Shop Rice Water Bright Foaming Cleanser, The Creme Shop Overnight Lip Therapy Masque, and Farm RX Super Greens Multivitamin Moisture Cream.

I’ve been using the Rice Water Bright Foaming Cleanser for a few years now, I love it so much. It is so beautiful and luxurious. I love the light aroma, the creaminess (it’s like a whipped cream), and it foams up very nicely. This is so gentle on my skin and leaves my face feeling fresh and pampered. It is in a very large tube that lasts me quite a while, as it only takes a very small “dot” of product per use.

You may have already seen a previous post from me about the Farm RX Super Greens Multivitamin Moisture Cream. This is awesome and worth mentioning again. It is made of 98% natural ingredients, including super nutrient broccoli sprouts, Brussel sprouts, moringa oil, and green tea. This is classified as a Clean Beauty product, with only 2% synthetic ingredients used. Avon explains this as needed to keep the product from molding, and they only use top quality synthetic ingredients. I love using this in the am right after cleansing. It leaves my skin feeling very fresh and revitalized. I feel ready to start my day!

The newest addition to my natural beauty routine is The Creme Shop’s Overnight Lip Therapy Masque in Sweet Berries. This is made from Shea Butter and Raspberries to help repair dry and cracked lips, help prevent discoloration, and maintain your lips’ smoothness. I’ve been enjoying using this right before bed to keep my lips feeling moisturized as a sleep. This does not have a flavor or aroma, so it does not disturb my sleep or make me feel hungry 🙂 .

I hope you’ll give these natural skin care items a try for yourself. Here are the links for you (direct to my Avon store):

Rice Water Bright Foaming Cleanser – $11.00

Farm RX Super Greens Multivitamin Moisture Cream – $27.99

The Creme Shop Overnight Lip Therapy Masque in Sweet Berries – $15.00

If you’re a fan of natural Clean Beauty products, here is link to the entire Farm RX line from Avon.

I hope you enjoy!
