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.
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.
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.
The Mono Pop Eyeshadow comes in 2 different palettes, Mood Coral and Mood Brown, and are on special right now, buy 1, get 1 half price – Yay! Click Here to get yours!
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!

Hello Everyone! Who’s ready for the Holidays to begin? Me! Me!!
I’m very excited for the Holiday Season this year, and mine has already begun, as a matter of fact. We had an early Thanksgiving get-together this past weekend since my Son will be working on Thanksgiving Day. So now I’m really ready for Christmas!
And what better way to get ready than with gorgeous makeup in all kinds of fun colors? I have enough makeup shades, said no woman ever! Haha!
I just received my Oh What Fun Makeup Mega Palette from Avon today. Hooray! I am so excited! Look at all these colors! It has Eyeshadows galore, as you can see — Lip Glosses – 5 Blush shades and 2 Highlighers. Plus it comes with makeup applicators. One Eyeshadow Wand, a Blush Brush, and a Lipstick Brush. And don’t forget, a nice-sized mirror!
No matter your skin-tone, eye color, fashion/style tastes, there are plenty of shades to suit your every mood. I know there are for mine, and that’s saying a lot. I cannot wait to get in this and play. When you open it – which, you’ll see that it arrives as a compact square case – you slide the top Eyeshadow Palette over to the right, then you pull the Blush and Lip Gloss segment out from the bottom on the left. That will click into place, then you’re ready to apply and be fabulously gorgeous in your Holiday party makeup look!
Here’s what the Palette looks like when it’s closed. It’s really pretty with glittery letters that say Oh What Fun. This compact case arrives in a festive box, so it’s definitely the perfect gift for yourself and all your girlfriends. This is now available on my Avon website (product #786-740), and is listed for $25.00. Quite the steal I’d say! This will last you well beyond this Holiday Season and into the New Year.
When you stop by and visit my Avon website today, the 12 Days of Deals deal is a Free Compact Mirror – So cute!
You can choose between the All That Glitters Mirror and the Snowflake Mirror. Use either Code – GLITTER or SNOWFLAKE to indicate your choice when you place a $50+ order.
I hope you enjoy all the Holiday cheer. Avon has really “brought it” this year. Be sure to visit the Holiday Gift Guide , it has everything you need to get your Holiday spirit in gear.
Okay gang — I’m off for now. Have fun shopping! See you next time!
Woo Hoo! Hello everybody! It’s all so exciting over here in Avon Land today! Happy Campaign 23!
How awesome are Avon’s Disco and Vintage Holiday themes for this year? Well, get ready to see for yourself, because I’m about to show you!
Avon has released some of their Holiday items – not all just yet, but a good amount today. We’re talking Makeup, Bath Products, Jewelry, Home Decor, and Fashion as well.
I’ll first begin with Makeup:
“These lippies are EVERYTHING!” says my friend Kathie, and I totally agree. The Limited Edition Be Bold Lipsticks are creamy matte finish lipsticks. The shades available are Power Pink (#853-623), Plum Perfect (#853-642), and Rule In Red (#853-619). The lipstick case is so pretty and glittery, and they come in a fun decorative box. These are listed at $9.00 each. I ordered the Power Pink, so I’ll show you mine once it arrives this week. Can’t wait!
Check out the new Limited Edition Dream in Color Eye Palette:
The colors are so vibrant and gorgeous! Click Here to see this palette plus a very colorful makeup brush set that would both make great gifts.
There are more sparkly makeup goodies that’s you’ll fall in love with, just scroll through the online brochure’s pages and enjoy! I will share one more fun makeup item with you. Speaking of a Disco Theme….
Isn’t that just the cutest?! It’s a Disco Ball Lip Balm! It’s called Own the Dance Floor Lip Balm, and it’s listed at only $4.00 (#854-137). You know you’ve gotta get some of these for stocking stuffers, right? I also ordered one of these cuties, and I’ll show you once it arrives.
Now, how about some sparkly jewelry? Yay!
And what could be more sparkly than the Galaxy? Introducing the new Sparkling Galaxy Watch. This beautiful timepiece is available in Fuchsia, Black, or Blue. This is being introduced at a special price of $19.99 each (regular list price $34.99). Which, I did notice that all the Holiday Jewelry is listed at special prices in this C23 book, so yay!
These are so gorgeous and look at all the metal and gem color choices! These Earrings are listed at $7.99 each pair, regular price $14.99 each.
Again, there are many other Jewelry choices for you to fall in love with, so I hope you have tons of fun scrolling through all the pages of this new brochure.
How about a little Glitter Shimmer Holiday Fashion?
These glittery slippers are so pretty!! You’ll be so pampered wearing these while putting on your Be Bold Lipstick in it’s glittery tube. Fancy Schmancy! These are only $10.99 a pair. They come in Pink, Silver, and Navy.
These sequined sweaters will add quite a bit of sparkle to your winter wardrobe.
I will cover the Bath and Home Decor items in another post, there’s just so much to share!
Avon now has now added a new Holiday Category to their website that includes a Holiday Beauty Gift Guide with Gifts under $10.00, Gifts under $20.00, and Gifts under $30.00. You’ll also find Holiday Decor, Stocking Stuffers, Jewelry Gifts, Fragrance Gifts, and Holiday Apparel. Check out the bottom of the page for Gift Giving FAQS. There are some really great questions and answers for holiday parties and gift giving.
Oh boy! And it’s just getting started!
I’ll leave you with a couple of sneak peek preview pictures for Campaign 25, as if your head isn’t already swimming enough! But I cannot help myself, plus I did have a request to see one of these items so, here we go!
This “Oh What Fun Makeup Mega Palette” is what I’m talking about…
Look at all that color!! There are Eyeshadows, Lip Glosses, Blushes, Highlighters, Applicators and a built in Mirror. This comes in a festive gift box, and it looks like it will be listed at $25.00. Get out! You’ll totally be set for all your holiday party looks. Campaign 25 begins November 13th, so stay tuned.
And I don’t know about you, but these next cuties make me soooooooo happy!!!!
Do you remember these? They’ve brought back the Iconic Avon Pretty Purrfect Bubble Baths. I remember these from my childhood. These will be available in Prissy (pink) and Prim (black). I’m going to have a hard time deciding which one I want. They are both so pretty. How about you? Which is your favorite? Or perhaps we’ll just have to get both? These will be listing at $20.00 each, and are definitely keep-sake bottles. I’ll be putting mine in my Avon Showroom. These kitties will be here November 13th as well, so be sure to follow this blog for email updates when I post!
Okay gang — I shall close for now. What an exciting day. I am really pumped for the holidays, how about you? I hope you’ve gotten just as big of a kick out of the Disco glittery stuffs and the peek at the Vintage items as I have. There’s a lot more to come, and I’m so excited to share all this happiness with you.
Till next time, stay fabulous, and always follow your joy! (I hope you’ve found some joy here!)
I love trying different colors, although my default setting is usually plums (like my lipstick choices), but I do enjoy a pop of blue, so I decided to get the Avon True Color Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Quad in Steel Blues and give it a try.
I really like this palette. The tones go really well with my dark brown eyes. Number 1 is a nice Cream color, very neutral, so a great coverage right under the brow area. Number 2 is a really pretty silvery blue’ish gray. It’s a shimmery look. Number 3 is a medium gray, and Number 4 is a dark navy blue color.
Here are Avon’s How-To Instructions for application, by number:
• Lightest shade (1) goes on the brow bone
• Accent shade (2) goes in the inner corner
• Medium shade (3) goes in the outer corner
• Darkest shade (4) goes on the lash lines
Follow this Link to find the Steel Blue Eyeshadow Quad (#528-781) plus all the other Avon Eyeshadow Quad options. Hover over the little Eyeshadow Icons and it will show you each palette on the larger Quad pic to your left. It’s really cool. (P.S. They’re on special right now for $5.29!)
And here I am wearing my Steel Blues Eyeshadow. I used the Number 4 dark navy color as an eyeliner. One side of the applicator has a pointy tip, so it’s very easy to line with. I do also wear eyeliners, but this color has a great stand-out pop of color on its own, as you can see. I used the Number 1 cream color right under my brow, and actually all the way down to my lid, then the Number 2 silvery shimmer color in my mid-eye area and the Number 4 navy to line and also bring out the edges of my eye lid area and then blended upward with the silvery color. I didn’t use the Number 3 gray color with this look, but I’ll most likely use it when I go for a more plum-type palette. Since I was wearing black and white, I wanted to stick with the navy and silvery tones.
It’s fun to mix and match between the Avon Eyeshadow palettes. Sometimes I stay within one color palette, and sometimes I mix in between several. It just depends on the colors I’m wearing and my mood. How about you?
And now for that sneak peek I promised you!
It’s getting so exciting – as if things have not been exciting enough in Avon Land, but I’m already receiving glimpses of holiday goodness that is soon coming our way. Hooray!!
Coming up in Campaign 23, the theme is “Live Your Best Life, Every day’s a holiday!” It is filled with holiday themed limited edition items that are so fun and fabulous. I’ll go into more detail about it all soon, but I thought I’d share the Limited Edition Dream in Color Eye Palette with you on today’s eyeshadow themed post.
Look at all of those gorgeous colors! So bright and so shimmery! That’s a definite holiday makeup must-have. It’s described as a vision of beautiful possibilities with 16 versatile shades. Looks like it will list at $15.00. Along with that there is the Limited Edition I Am Flawless Brush Set. This will have four pro brushes to get holiday-ready on the go, it says. It will include the purple pouch with a zipper closure. This set will list at $20.00. These would make fabulous gifts as well. Look how pretty those brushes are.
And there’s a lot more! I know, I know, you just have to stay tuned! Wait till you see the cute little Own the Dance Floor (disco ball) Lip Balm.
Okay, I’ve teased you enough! Haha! I will close for now, but I do promise to return with more Avon fabulousness, and I leave you with always stay fabulous yourself, and always follow your joy, well wishes.
