It’s a brighter pink in person than in the online picture. I am really going to enjoy wearing this.
This is one of Avon’s True Color Nourishing Lipsticks. They are being replaced by newer lipstick formulas, so they are on final sale for $4.79. Get’em while you can, and at a fabulous price. They are great and have been my favorite go-to lipsticks for a long time.

This new C.21 campaign rolls out with some gorgeous glam for you, and I definitely have a few favorites to share, so be sure to stay tuned.
And a quick side-note. With the launch of this newest Campaign, I was able to get a sneak peek ahead to C.23 that will be arriving October 14th, and guess what? There are already Christmas items in that campaign! Hooray!!! Doing a happy dance! The holidays are coming – the holidays are coming!
Okay — back to now and all the glam. I’m so happy to see glam back in the spotlight. Definitely a favorite of mine.
Avon has added to their gorgeous glamstar Glimmershadow liquid eyeshadow line with their newest shades in Matte Sateen. These liquid eyeshadows are a buildable silky cream formula that glides on effortlessly for a soft subtle sheen that will last you all day. They are crease and smudge proof as well. The Sateen Glimmershadows are available in 6 everyday neutral shades: Sunstone, Moonstone (I’ve ordered this one), Pink Sapphire, Citrine, Jasper, and Tiger’s Eye.
I just think these are so gorgeous. I cannot wait to receive mine in Moonstone.
Can’t decide which you like best? Why not try it on first?
Anytime you see this button that says “Try it on”,
You can try it on! Just choose the shade you’d like to try on and click the button from your phone or computer and it will bring you up on the screen – in real-time virtual video and it will position the eyeshadow right on your eyelids. It’s so cool! And it looks very real. I love using this makeover tool. I’ve used it with and without eyeshadow on, and it definitely works best without eyeshadow already on your eyes, but if you have some on, the darker shades will show up better than the lighter ones.
You can try on all the shades and even download pictures of yourself wearing each shade. Then you’ll know which are your faves – yay!
These are listed at $10.00 each, but as you saw in the screenshot above, your price is $7.49 when you shop my website. And, as you can also see from the screenshot, you can try on all the Glimmershadow types from this one page: Shimmer, new Matte Sateen, and Glitter shades.
I hope you have a blast trying on all the Glimmershadow colors . I’d love to hear which are your favorites and see your pics!
I’ll be back very soon with a fun new lipstick product that you’re going to definitely want to try on virtually and definitely wear. It is sooooo gorgeous and glam!
Thought I’d share a little something special with all of you for the holiday.
How about a beauty gift set worth $42.00, for a special price of $10.00? That’s what I’m talking about!
The A-Boxes from Avon are FABULOUS. Each one is curated with a different theme. Each has it’s own unique and beautiful box – look, it’s even shaped like an A! Each contain full size and try-it sized beauty products.
The C.20 A-Box is titled Cherry-Ish Yourself. How fun is that? And what a treat for yourself.
Indulge in a sweet sampling of Avon’s new cherry-scented fragrance (smells really really good – I’ll be blogging about this new cherry perfume soon), anti-aging skin care (My all time favorite, The Therapy – This is a wonderful opportunity to give it a try for yourself), a luxe lip balm and a shimmering nail fave.
Includes a mini skin care essential, a travel-size fragrance and full-size lip and nail faves. Limited-Edition Set Includes: • LYRD Artisan Cherry Vetiver Eau de Parfum Travel Spray, .3 fl. oz. • Birthday Balm Lip Crayon in Surprise!, .1 oz. net wt. • Gel Finish 7-in-1 Nail Enamel in Dazzle Pink, .4 fl. oz. • The Therapy Oil Blending Cream, .34 fl. oz
Here’s the link to snag one of these for yourself before they’re gone. There is no coupon code necessary. Just click to add the A-Box to your cart, and when you order alongside your total order of $40+ it will automatically only bill you $10 for the A-Box. Fantastic!
Hemp and CBD Oil seem to be all the rage the days, and for good reason. They are filled with nourishing, healing, and calming properties. This particular Bathing Bar is made using Hemp Oil. Avon has CBD Oil products as well, such as the Green Goddess Facial Oil that I love so much, but this time we’ll be talking Hemp.
And what about Hemp Seed Oil?
Here is Avon’s answer for you: A naturally-derived oil enriched with omega-3-6-9 fatty acids and vitamin E to help naturally nourish, hydrate and soften as it cleanses for the look of youthful, healthy radiance.
• Infused with ultra-hydrating hemp seed oil
• Gently cleanses and nourishes
• Leaving skin feeling refreshed and soft
• Dermatologically tested
• Formulated without CBD, THC, mineral oil, parabens and triclosan
And to my very great surprise, this smells AWESOME! I was really expecting this to smell “green” like herbally, because of the nature of the ingredient, and also the color of the bar itself, but oh boy, does it smell wonderful. It’s definitely a unisex aroma. It’s pretty, but yet almost hints at a men’s fragrance. So yeah, I’d say for both men and women to share. I would even set this out in a guest bathroom to fragrance the air, it smells so good. After using this bar I have found it very pleasurable as it lathers well and leaves my skin lightly fragranced.
Up next, I decided to try the Avon Solutions Dramatic Firming Cream as well as their Advance Techniques 360 Nourish With Moroccan Argan Oil Conditioner.
You may or may not yet be aware of how skin’s elasticity and tone can tend to change as we mature, especially around the neck and jaw-line areas of our gorgeous faces. Wah-wah…
Even when using moisturizers faithfully, exercising, and eating a very healthy diet, we may still need to call in a little extra reinforcement. Thankfully Avon has their Dramatic Firming Cream. As I’ve been noticing some changes in my jaw-line area, I thought it was time for me to call in the cavalry myself.
Here is Avon’s official description:
Give your skin its youthful, tight look back with the Dramatic Firming Cream. The special formula works to firm and smooth while simultaneously moisturizing your face to return skin’s healthy elasticity. 1.7 fl. oz.
BENEFITS • Collagen helps keep skin firm and resilient • Vitamin E helps provide antioxidant protection • Vitamin A helps smooth skin • Pomegranate extract helps firm skin • Dermatologist-tested, allergy-tested • Phthalate-free, sulfate-free, petroleum-free TO USE • Use each night after cleansing and toning, or in the morning under makeup or alone. Apply a nickel-sized amount of cream on your throat and massage upward until completely absorbed. Then, beginning at the jaw line, gently smooth the cream on your face, moving toward your temples and avoiding the eye area.
I’ve been using this firming cream for about a week now. Overall, so far I am very happy with it. I use this mainly at night after cleansing and moisturizing. I dot it on my chest and neck area and rub upwards to my jaw-line. I do not use this on my entire face, and definitely not around my eye area. Do not want to tighten my eyes! Haha!
This product is lightly scented. It is creamy and light. Not thick and gooey at all. It rubs in very easily and then disappears, so you could wear this during the day under makeup no problem.
If you’d like to give this Dramatic Firming Cream a try for yourself, you can snag a jar right now for $5.49 on my website. It normally lists for $10.00, so yay!
And next, we talk hair and Argan Oil.
I’ve noticed that Argan Oil seems to be all the rage these days as well. So yeah, let’s give this a try too. I’m always game to give something a try at least once (well, things that are within reason now…) 🙂
Here is Avon’s official description:
Instantly improve hair’s health and shine with Moroccan argan oil. It helps to transform dry hair and leaves it feeling moisturized. Formulated with argan oil, provitamin B5 and vitamin E, conditions hair with a creamy, luxurious lather, helping to restore the signs of healthy hair. 11.8 fl. oz.
BENEFITS • Cleanses and conditions hair • Restore the signs of healthy hair • Instantly detangles hair • Fights frizz • Contains vitamin E and provitamin B5 • Suitable for all hair types and for color treated hair
TO USE Wet hair and lather. Rinse. Repeat if necessary.
So I asked myself, “What is Argan Oil?” Then I asked Wikipedia. Here is the reply:
Argan oil is a plant oil produced from the kernels of the argan tree that is endemic to Morocco. In Morocco, argan oil is used to dip bread in at breakfast or to drizzle on couscous or pasta. It is also used for cosmetic purposes.
So then I wondered what are the benefits of Argan Oil? Healthline.com helped answer that question:
Argan oil has been used for centuries for a variety of culinary, cosmetic and medicinal purposes. It is rich in essential nutrients, antioxidants and anti-inflammatory compounds. Early research indicates that argan oil may help prevent chronic illnesses, including heart disease, diabetes and cancer.
Okay! Sounds awesome! I may want to eat some too. But, yeah, definitely sounds very healthy for my hair, so thanks Avon!
I’ve been using this for about 2 weeks now, and I really do love it. As you’ve most likely noticed, I’ve grown out my natural hair color which is a salt and pepper blend, or as I call it “my silvers”, and I like them to shine. That’s one of the reasons why I decided to give this a try. It sounded like something that would help my silvers shine at their best. And I was right. My hair is shiny and manageable, and even has more body. I could tell a difference after my first use. My scalp was feeling a bit dry as well, and now feels much better after using this product.
Definitely recommend, and again if you’d like to try this amazing Moroccan Argan Oil Conditioner for yourself, it is listed at $4.89, regularly $9.00.
And as an extra side-note I decided to look up Argan Trees to see what they look like. Omg.. Haha! Check this.
Seems like goats like to climb up in the Argan Trees. That’s too funny!
And here is what the Argania Fruits look like:
Bet you know more about Moroccan Argan Oil now than you thought you’d care to!
Well, at least I hope it was a fun journey for you. I know I enjoyed learning all about it, and especially the goats in the trees.
I also hope that you give some of these fantastic products a try for yourself and enjoy their benefits.
I have more Avon goodies on their way to me now and am expecting an Avon Swag Bag to arrive very soon as well. I’m so excited! Avon’s annual convention is taking place at the end of this month. This year it is a virtual convention, so I’ll be attending from home. I can’t wait to see how it all goes. It will be live and interactive. But I’ll for sure be showing you all the swag I receive. It will either arrive with the order I have coming now, or in my next one, so we’ll see!
If you’d like to join in on the convention and all the swag, you still have a bit of time left to grab a spot. You can click here to join up today, and then contact me for convention sign-up info.
Okay gang, I’ll sign off for now. Till next time, stay fabulous!

Self care is very very important right now. Taking care of your body, mind, and spirit, and keeping yourself uplifted and feeling good is a great way to shift your focus off of what’s going on around you, and instead channel a good feeling inward to help you through. The more we can stay uplifted, the more we can uplift others, and you know the saying – “That’s a good thing!”.
Avon has set up a whole new category to help us all address this, called Self-Care Heroes.
In this special category you will find everyday essentials such as Beauty Self-Care where the focus is shifted from pampered indulgence to your everyday necessities. You will find hair care products and tools, a pedicure kit, root touch-up product, hair color, facial cleansers, moisturizers, masks, and more. I wanted to mention to you all that you may want to get on the waiting list for the Rice Water Bright Foaming Cleanser. This cleanser is the bomb – I love it so much, and I am also on the wait list. This will definitely lift your spirits. It is so soft and creamy and moisturizing and smells so good. The smell reminds me of soft pink powder. It really makes me feel good when I use it. Every little thing counts right now you know.
Next on the list of Self-Care Heroes is Body Defense Faves. In this category you will find personal care items for both indoors and outdoors. There are body and hand lotions, moisture therapy lotions for dry skin, anti-fungal foot spray, hand soaps, bug spray and more. The Moisture Therapy line is a must-have for me. This is great for my sensitive skin. It is unscented and really has a positive impact on my skin. The lotion in the little jar is my fave. Very rich and creamy.
Now we’re on to Home Essentials. Here you will find goodies to keep your home space clean and serene. There are the Fruits and Passions Hand Soaps (these are super awesome!), beautifully scented candles, toothpastes and tooth brushes, as well as aromatherapy oil blends.
My favorite Cucina Fruits and Passion Hand Soap is the Grapefruit and Rhubard. It smells really really pretty. Not overpowering, just really nice, and it is made with olive oil, so this also helps keep your hands moisturized. I use this in my kitchen as a hand wash only – not for the dishes – it’s too pretty! It’s a little something special, just for you…
And then we have a very popular category right now, At-Home Leisurewear. You might as well be looking good while you’re wearing your at-home leisure wear, right? There are leggings, tanks, tees, sports bras, flip-flops, and more.
My Sister-In-Law ordered these tanks and she really loves them. They are reversible so you can have either a V-neck line or Scoop neck line. They come in a really pretty Raspberry Pink, a Light Blue, White, and Black. They’ll go with all your leggings and sweat pants!
And I say, while you are shopping for necessities, why not take a look at all the fabulous lipsticks and lipstick colors? This is a great time to browse and shop makeup colors. I know a new tube of bright lipstick always lifts my spirits, how about you?
And to be at-home practical AND fun, you’ve gotta try Avon’s Crave Lip Gloss –
There are 12 Crave Lip Glosses to choose from and they are on sale right now for $4.99 each, regular price is $8.00 each. I love wearing the Birthday Cake Crave. Which will be your favorite?
I hope you find some things here that will brighten your stay-at-home lifestyle right now – and beyond. I know we are all hoping this will all be over very soon, but in the mean-time, we’ve got to be good to ourselves and treat ourselves to some new and fun things that can bring happiness into our new routines.
And don’t forget those fabulous bubble baths! And for the kiddos too! Here is a link to Avon’s Bubble Bath products – Click here.
Alright gang. I will close for now. Have fun shopping all the Avon fabulousness! I’ll be back again soon with more fun stuffs for you to enjoy.
