Mono Pop Mood Coral Eyeshadow Palette – Beauty and Versatility

Mono Pop Mood Coral Color Swatch

Hey all! I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful weekend, and that this new week is very kind to you.

I thought I’d try my hand (or arm actually) at doing a swatch pictorial to give you a better idea of how pretty the new Avon x The Face Shop Mono Pop Mood Coral Eyeshadow Palette really is, and how great it blends.

With this being my first attempt at color swatching eye shadow, I of course turned to Google and You Tube for how-to info, and I’m glad I did. It seems that sometimes in attempting to achieve the “perfect” color swatch, the color may have been applied using a different method than what you would normally use to apply it to your eyelids, resulting in an ineffective or inaccurate depiction of what you can actually expect to see when you apply the eye shadow for yourself once you purchase the product. So, with that in mind, and also hoping to achieve some sense of what you can expect in blendability, I first prepped my arm using my foundation and powder to give it the same type of base as what I would begin with in applying my makeup.

Avon x The Face Shop Mono Pop Eyeshadow, Mood Coral

I used a regular eyeshadow wand to apply the colors. You can see the wand in the first picture above, and the next one below. I found that when applying this particular palette, I liked the little wand instead of an eyeshadow brush, as it yielded more color and sparkle bang than a brush did.

Mono Pop Mood Coral

Another thing I love about this palette is the effective layering I can achieve. I first used the lightest color as a base then built upon it as I wished. For my look this weekend, I used the pink and then went over it with the taupe shimmery color (It’s the 2nd shimmer color on the far right side of the palette) in the middle of my eye, and my eyelid.

I also layered some of the coral shimmer to the middle of my eye area as well for a little more pop shimmery color.

With me going out for the evening, I decided to borrow some dark gray from my Avon Purple Haze Palette, and I used that around my eyes – over my Avon eyeliner pencil (black), and then I went over that with the dark brown from the Mood Coral palette to make the color tone more cohesive. I also used some of the dark brown in the crease and outside edges of my eye to blend and connect the lighter colors with the very dark eyeliner (line + shadow) look around my eyes.

That’s another fabulous point about this palette, it can go from a day to night makeup look. You can see that with the colors in this palette it will be easy to do a very pretty day look, and now you can also see, it is great for a more dramatic evening look, and for any age group. You’re never too young or old for pretty shimmery colors, and this palette has both matte and shimmery – so yeah, no matter what mood you’re in (coral or whatever), wherever you may be headed – work, date, etc., I definitely recommend this palette for it’s versatility and beauty.

So – one color swatching session under my belt. I hope it helped you to see the colors in action. I’ll try my arm at it again sometime soon to show you some of Avon’s other eyeshadow choices. They are all great – great colors – great wearability – etc.

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

Moisture Therapy for Dry Skin

Avon Moisture Therapy for Intensive Healing

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you had a fabulous weekend and enjoyed some beautiful weather.

And speaking of weather – it’s that time of year for the dry skin blues. But, you’re in luck, it doesn’t have to be. I’d like to share some of my already lotion faves plus some new lotion rock stars that I’ve added to my skin regime recently.

And of course these are all Avon lotions. Avon is definitely a skin care super star and these products have been such a comfort and a joy to me. If you follow me on my social media you may recall that I had a nasty fall in November. I’ve been on the mend, and am doing much better now – thank goodness!

I had two areas on my right leg that received injuries. My knee received a deep gash, and I also scraped my leg close to my ankle. My knee was my main concern, but I treated both wounds the same. My knee eventually got better, but the scrape got bigger and much worse. I ended up having to go to a Dermatologist for this issue and it seems that I had an allergic reaction to the antibiotic I was using. But getting to where I’m going with my story, using the Avon Moisture Therapy on my legs has been such a comfort – not on my wounds, but around the wound area and my complete leg area actually – it really helped my skin feel so much better. I had ordered some of the little holiday lotion sets that Avon was offering during the holiday season to give out, and I kept the Moisture Therapy Intensive Healing Lotion for hands, so that was the one that I used initially and it helped my skin so much, that I ordered the Moisture Therapy Intensive Healing Body Lotion and Cream. They are of a different consistency than the Hand Lotion, they are more creamy, which works very well for going right into my skin with no greasy residue at all. That was an important factor for me in my healing – that the lotion would work into my skin quickly – I had limited mobility lotioning up my legs since I could not bend my knee at first, plus the areas were sensitive so I did not want to rub very hard.

Another fabulous thing about these Moisture Therapy Intensive Healing and Repair Lotions is that they are great for sensitive skin. They are not perfumed. And that is also an issue that came up for me during this ordeal. The area on my leg that was allergic to the antibiotic lotion was triggered into some kind of eczema episode, so I had to be careful what type of lotion I used, and it definitely had to be very moisturizing and also unscented. Both of these babies fit the bill perfectly and I will continue to use both of these body lotion products. They both work awesomely – it would just be a matter of preference. The lotion pump is great. I like that I can walk by and easily get lotion for my hands or whatever on the fly. The jar of cream is great as well. It’s very creamy and luxurious feeling. I like to sit on my bed and open the jar and enjoy using this on my skin right after a shower or bath – And speaking of baths — I was finally able to take a bath for the first time in over 2 months – hooray!! I definitely needed help getting up and down – my knee caps are still a bit sore, but I did it! What an awesome feeling – You just don’t realize how much the little pleasures in life mean sometimes until you’re unable to enjoy them. A bubble bath!! With my favorite Avon Vanilla Bubble Bath!! I was so excited. I had a full bottle of my Vanilla Bubble Bath that I had just purchased back at the beginning of November, and it just sat there, waiting for me… But we finally got to connect again – Yay!

Now — another comfort and joy — and you know I’ve talked about Avon’s foot lotion before:

Avon Foot Works Deep Moisturizing Cream

Well, let me tell you, this has been a great great comfort to me in my recuperation as well. My husband would rub my feet for me since I couldn’t bend my knees to reach my feet — Awwwww….. He’s been so sweet and kind to me through all this.

I usually use the Avon Foot Works Deep Moisturizing Cream, but this last time I ordered I decided to also try the Intensive Moisture Foot Cream, it says that it’s safe for Diabetics too (if any of you may need a special diabetic foot cream). I love them both! I’ve been using them both, and they both rub into my skin very easily – they both make my feet feel sooooo much better. The only difference I can detect is the aroma. They both have a very light aroma. The Deep Moisturizing Foot Cream has a very pleasant (kind of floral) aroma and the Intensive Moisture Foot Cream has a very light peppermint aroma. I highly recommend both of these – If you have a health issue perhaps go with the Intensive Healing one, but other than that – perhaps the scent would sway you one way or the other. Click Here to find the Intensive Moisture Therapy products on my Avon website – you’ll see that there is an Intensive Body and Heel trio listed for 8.49 – it’s a $20.00 value – that’s so awesome! It has body and foot cream. Also, there is a special right now on the Intensive Healing and Repair products – Buy 1 get one of your choice for FREE! Wow!

Avon Moisture Therapy Calming Relief Hand Lotion

And you know I cannot talk about awesome lotions without mentioning my favorite hand cream, Avon’s Calming Relief Hand Cream. I keep a couple of these babies on hand (haha!) at all times. Again, unscented, and this has oatmeal to provide great relief to your dry hands – easy to rub into the skin, and not greasy. Perfect combo. I am happy to report to you that this is on sale right now for $2.50 a tube – regular price is $6.00. Here is a link to the Hand Creams page – they’re all $2.50 right now! Get stocked up for sure!

I think I’ll wrap this segment up with my favorite facial moisturizing routine as well – Cannot leave your face out in the cold… I know – boooo…

Avon x The Face Shop

I’m in total love with the Avon x The Face Shop’s new Rice Water Bright Foaming Facial Cleanser and The Therapy Oil Blending Cream. The Rice Water Bright Cleanser is made using – rice water! The milky white water is enriched with vitamins A, B & C, ceremide and minerals, and this helps your skin feel moisturized and look radiant. This does have a very nice light scent – I was concerned about it having a scent, but it has not irritated my skin, and my face feels really good after washing with this.

The Therapy Oil Blending Cream contains Sandalwood, Avocado and Palmarosa. Upon receiving it you will see that it has a layer of cream, and a layer of oils. They send a spatula for you to blend your formula. Once it’s blended, it stays blended. This is made from a 200-year-old formulation of flowers, leaves and fruits that help keep your skin feeling nourished and looking younger. It goes right into the skin very easily and is not greasy or heavy. It feels quite luxurious actually. This is lightly scented as well, and again, I’ve not had any issues with it being lightly scented. You can read a complete list of ingredients here.

I hope you find the perfect Moisture Therapy for all of your skin’s needs and that it will also bring you great comforts and joy. Having moisturized skin means so much and feels so great.

Till next time, stay fabulous, well moisturized, and follow your joy!

And, with my order I also re-stocked on my favorite hand lotion, Avon’s Moisture Therapy, Calming Relief.
