Try on Lipstick Colors Virtually from Your Phone!

Question: How do I find my perfect lipstick shade? Answer: Avon’s online Virtual Makeover Tool. Yes, that’s what I said — You can try on lipstick right from your computer or phone! No need to go to a makeup counter, or have tons of lipstick shades in front of you to wipe off and try on another. Avon now has an online Virtual Makeover Tool for that! And it looks very real. Here I am giving it a try:

I tried on all kinds of lipstick shades. And I did so over lipstick I was already wearing. I posted a blog a few days ago with me trying the new Virtual Makeover Tool not wearing any lipstick or eyeshadow, and it worked very well. This time I thought I’d give it a try wearing full makeup.

The lipstick Makeover Tool worked very well except for lighter shades – that’s because I was already wearing Dragonfruit lipstick, so overall I think it did a great job in covering up the shade I was already wearing and replacing it with the virtual lipstick colors. What do you think?

Here’s how my lipstick looked originally:

Yeah! I’d say it did a great job!

Now, for the eyeshadow, I would definitely recommend not wearing any or at least very light eyeshadow when trying them on virtually. The only one that would work over my very dark eyeshadow that I already had on was the bright blue. And of course to find your perfect foundation or eyebrow pencil shade, definitely go all natural.

The online Virtual Makeover Tool is really easy to use. Here’s what you do:

  1. Follow this link. This will take you to my Avon website’s page titled: Get a Virtual Make Over.
  2. Choose which makeup item you’d like to try on. There are products for your lips, eyes, and face.
  3. Click on the product to bring it up. Then click the button that says “Try it On”.
  4. Once you do that, you’ll have to give permission for it to use your computer or phone’s camera.
  5. A live video of you will come up – It’s so fun!
  6. Click on the color/shade of your chosen product that you’d like to try on.
  7. The camera will find the spot where the product needs to go and you will see the product color right there on your gorgeous face in real time.
  8. You can take a picture of yourself wearing a particular shade (like I did). There is a little camera icon on the screen with you when you’re live trying on the makeup colors. Click that. It will show you a countdown 3-2-1 and then take your picture. Make sure to click the “Download” button right next to the camera icon to save it to your phone.
  9. You can take a picture of yourself in every shade that you want to and compare and see which are your favorites.
  10. You can share your pics on IG using the Hashtag #jfaysbeautyblog for a chance to be featured here on Jfay’s Beauty Blog.

Have fun! Share it with your friends! If you have any questions about using the Makeover Tool, feel free to ask. You can always contact me here on the blog or DM me on any of my social media pages. I’ll be happy to help.

Make a Statement without Saying a Word

Makeup by Avon

What kind of statement do you like to make when you present yourself to the world? We are all many personalities (and sometimes many nationalities) rolled into one unique individual, and I think that is so wonderful.

I enjoy a dramatic look, especially with my eye makeup. I always have. I suppose it’s because I have very dark eyes. But I do love my eyeliner.

It’s been a little while since I put on a full face of makeup, and it felt really good! I’ve not been anywhere in a while to present any type of statement about me, but with the arrival of my new Shubra Statement Necklace from Jarlia by Jolina in London (an anniversary present), it gave me a good excuse to get dressed up for a photo shoot.

Shubra Statement Necklace from Jarlia by Jolina

Jolina designs gorgeous African Egyptian jewelries and when I saw this necklace I immediately fell in love. I had been looking for something special to celebrate recently learning of my African ancestry, and this was definitely it for me. It is so gorgeous (dramatic, as I love), and does make a beautiful statement about me.

I had a lot of fun getting all my Avon makeup out again and getting dolled up. I use Avon exclusively for all my skincare and makeup, and I really love it. I am a youthful 55, and I greatly appreciate that Avon helps keep my skin looking great every day, no matter if I am wearing full makeup or going au naturale.

Here is a list of Avon products used for this shoot:

Rice Water Bright Foaming Cleanser – You have to begin with the very best, and this is the best facial cleanser I’ve ever used. It is rich and moisturizing.

The Therapy Oil Blending Cream – I love this moisturizer. It is made from a 200 year old recipe and includes natural ingredients such as Sandalwood and Avocado. You’ve gotta try it.

Avon True Color Flawless Cream-to-Powder Foundation – I love using this with the little applicator sponge that comes with it. It is not heavy and is long wearing.

Avon True Color Flawless Mattifying Pressed Powder in Translucent

Magix Dust Finishing Powder – I LOVE this stuff! It’s brand new. You use a large powder brush and sweep this all over your face for a natural glow. It’s made with mineral powder like pearls and rubies. I received a compliment the other day that my skin looked glowing. I had used this!

Oh What Fun Mega Makeup Palette – Can you believe this is still available? This is the really cool makeup palette from Christmas time. I used a pretty pink blush from this collection as well as a shimmery light pink and gray eyeshadow. This is on final sale for $25.00. It’s full of all kinds of eyeshadow colors, blushes, lip balms, and a couple of highlighters. It also has makeup brushes. You really should snag one while it’s still there. This is amazing.

Oh What Fun Mega Palette
Oh What Fun Mega Makeup Palette

Avon True Color Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Quad – In Steel Blues. I used the dark Navy eyeshadow as a liner under my lashes. These Quads are on sale for $5.59 each palette.

Mono Pop Eyeshadow Palette – Corals, for a brush of glitteriness on my lids. These palettes will be available soon. Be sure to get on the Wait List.

Ultra Luxe Liner – in Black. Right now you can get the liner plus a sharpener duo for $5.59.

Love At First Lash Mascara – Black. This is my most favorite mascara ever. It goes on so good and is very dramatic. My lashes really show. It washes off easily too. On sale!

Avon True Color Glimmersticks Lip Liner – Pomegranate. This is on Final Sale for $3.99 each.

Avon True Color Nourishing Lipstick – Dragonfruit Blush. These are also on Final Sale – $5.99 each.

And there you have it!

I hope you enjoy making your own personal statement about you – who you are, and how you like the world to see you. And I hope that Avon can help you make your own personal statement with all the gorgeous makeup offerings that they have available. There are a lot of new makeup items coming on the scene as well that I’ll be trying out and sharing with you, so I hope you’ll follow here and stay tuned. I appreciate your friendship and you being on this journey with me.

Till next time, stay fabulous, and always follow your joy.

Trying on Makeup with Avon’s new Makeover Tool

Hey! Look who had some fun today!

It’s me – trying on makeup using the new Makeover Tool from Avon.

This was really cool, and really fun.

I only wore base makeup to do this so that I could see the different lipstick and eyeshadow colors on my face.

Here’s a close-up for you to see the lipstick really good.

This was all live and interactive. I thought I would need to take a pic and upload it, but it was live video, real time. Look how well the lipstick sits right on my lips. You can even see the shimmer. This was the Glimmerkiss Liquid Lipstick, and you can see how the real product is going to look when you wear it – gloss and glimmer and all. So awesome!

Now I’m trying on some Glimmershadow in Silver. I thought perhaps I may be too fair for the Silver to show up, but hey, I think I really like it!

Or perhaps a purple?

The Makeover Tool will tell you the name of the shade(s) you’re trying on. And see, I have no lipstick on – the pictures with me with lipstick are all virtual reality, and it looks so real. Here’s a lipstick pic with a more pink tone:

I really like the brighter reds and pinks on me. I tried on all kinds of colors. This was so fun. After seeing my pics, my husband really liked the sparkly Ruby Glimmerkiss Liquid Lipstick on me. I did too.

It’s really cool when you visit the Virtual Makeover Page – You can find it Here. You click on a product that you’d like to try. Then you click Try It On. You will need to give permission for it to take pics on your phone or computer.

Once you see yourself on the live video screen, you can click on the different colors you’d like to try, one at a time. Each color will appear where it’s supposed to – on your eyes or lips or face (if you’re trying foundation tones). Give it a moment to appear and then you’ll see a little camera icon – You can click on that to take your picture with that particular shade or color on. It will show you a countdown clock 3-2-1 and then take your photo. You then click to download the picture onto your phone or computer. This works from both your phone and computer cameras. I used my phone outside as you can see. The lighting was great outdoors for this.

I hope you give it a try – And if you do, I’d love to see your pics! You can use the hashtag #jfaysbeautyblog on IG. That’s where I’ll be posting mine. I may even pick my favorites to share here on my blog. I’ll be sure to tag you in a post on IG so that you will know that you’ve been posted and can come by here and see your mugshot!

Till next time, stay fabuluous!

Earl Grey Tea and Mint-Flavored Tooth Balm in Fun Vintage-Inspired Packaging

New Perioe Vintage-Inspired Tooth Balm Products from Avon

I say, would you care for a spot of Earl Grey – Tooth Balm? Yes, that’s what I said, Earl Grey and Mint Tooth Balm.

I promised you some fun dental care items, didn’t I?

As soon as I saw these in Avon’s What’s New Representative Preview Book, I knew I had to give them a try. How cool do these look?

But first, a little background info for you on the Perioe brand and what it’s all about. The Perioe Toothpaste band was launched in 1981 by LG — the new parent company of Avon, so this is an LG product. The Perioe brand was named so because of the word periodontal and the main focus of the brand is to help maintain oral health beyond just the teeth. Each of their products has a special function that takes into consideration one’s overall oral care. (Source: Korea.net) They are also lauded for using natural ingredients.

One of the coolest things about these particular Perioe Tooth Balms offered through Avon is that they are – Ahem… flavored by professional perfumers, thank you very much. Fancy, schmancy. There are 3 flavor choices for you: Lemon Basil Mint, Earl Grey Tea Mint, and Eucalyptus Mint (with activated charcoal).

Which is your favorite?

I of course chose the Earl Grey Mint to try first. It was a tough decision between that and the Lemon Basil.

Earl Grey Tea and Mint Toothpaste

As you can see from my photo, the tooth balm does arrived sealed under the cap.

Here is Avon’s formal description:

Enjoy your aah moment of zen with this Earl Grey tea and mint-flavored tooth balm, flavored by professional perfumers. It’s not a paste…it’s a luxurious balm for teeth. Lusciously textured with rich flavor and a sparkling fresh aftertaste. Not to mention, the phosphate formula will make your smile super bright. Fluoride-free, cruelty-free and paraben-free for your green and healthy life. 3.5 oz. net wt. Want more flavors? Brush up with Perioe Tooth Balm Toothpaste in Charcoal Eucalyptus Mint and Lemon Basil Mint.

FEATURES
• Phosphate formula makes your smile super bright
• Vintage-inspired design
• Flouride-free, paraben-free and cruelty-free

And it does taste really good! At first I got the mint – not an overpowering mint – but nice and fresh. The more I brushed, the more the Earl Grey tea flavor came forward. It is like a nice herbal flavor. Quite different from the ordinary.

Now, I know you caught a glimpse of those cute toothbrushes, didn’t you? Not to worry, I wasn’t going to leave them out.

Perioe Tooth Balm Brushes

Can you spot something different about these toothbrushes? Look at the bristles. They are all going horizontally. This allows you to floss between your teeth as you’re brushing. Brilliant!

Horizontal pattern bristles for deep cleaning between the teeth.

Did you also notice that these come 2 to a pack? I’m taking the red and white for me, and giving the black and white one to my Hubby to use. I really enjoyed using this toothbrush. The brush bristles are nice and soft, so they were very easy on my gums. I was able to reach way to the back of my mouth easily as it is a short headed brush. It has a nice width, so I felt like I got good coverage on all my teeth, and of course it was great for my front teeth (gotta shine that smile) with the layout of the bristles.

Perioe Tooth Balm Brushes from LG and Avon

These are listed at $7.00 for a two-pack of Tooth Balm Brushes. The Tooth Balms are also listed at $7.00 each. Here is a link to the Tooth Balm lineup. Scroll down a bit on this page and you’ll find some other Perioe brand oral products – Himalaya Pink Salt Toothpaste and Toothbrushes.

Okay gang! I hope enjoyed today’s blog post with all the fancy tooth balms and horizontal tooth balm brushes, and that you’ll treat yourself and give these a try. These look really cool on the sink area too. Gives you and your bathroom a fun spruce-up!

I’ll be back with more Avon goodness soon. I hope you enjoy your weekend!

Scented Candles from Avon

Scented Candles from Avon
Pink Prosecco Candle and Melon Macaron Candle from Avon

The candles have arrived! So exciting! I wasn’t expecting them till Monday, but they came in Thursday. Just in time too, with all the storms we’ve been having here in Southeast Texas. And they smell soooooo good!! Wish there was smell-o-vision already!

I’m so impressed with these. They come in a really nice box as you can see. These are perfect for gifts, which, one of these is for my Husband’s Aunt’s 90th birthday. I think she’ll really love the Pink Prosecco Candle. It has the aromas of champagne and citrus with a hint of rose. I thought it would be the perfect celebratory candle for her.

I ordered the Melon Macaron Candle for our home. My Husband and I both love vanilla types of aromas and this one smells really really yummy. When I smell it I can almost taste it! And I have to tell you, I was a candle maker for 9 years, and I liked to load my candles with scent, and this one is really good. I cannot wait to burn it. The aromas in this one are sugared vanilla (oh yeah!), strawberries, watermelon, coconut milk and musk. It has a real depth to the smell. I’m impressed again.

Melon Macaron Candle from Avon

And I like that they come with a nice lid too. It’s a vacuum type lid and seals in the aroma when not burning the candle. These candles have 30 hours of burning time. The heft is nice, they weigh 11 ounces. The glass is nice and thick, and the pictures are really pretty. So, for the price of these, they are really a fabulous find. They list originally at $19.99 each, but there is a special right now and you can get 2 for $24.00. Garden Party Candles this is the direct link to the special.

I hope you all have a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend and that you’re staying high and dry. I’m hoping for a beautiful weekend myself, and I’m going to enjoy burning my new candle!

Cheers! Jfay
