Avon’s 134th Birthday Means Vintage Inspired Beauties for Us to Enjoy

Celebrating Beauty Since 1886

Wow! Can you believe it? Avon is turning 134 years old. Now, that’s a beauty legacy worth celebrating.

And they are. And we get to enjoy every bit of it.

To celebrate 134 years of beauty, Avon has released a special collection of vintage inspired beauty products and jewelry items called Iconic Avon. There are some real gems in this collection, so I knew you’d want to see. I picked a few of my favorites to share.

Let’s begin with the Iconic Far Away Eau de Parfum. Look how beautiful this bottle is.

Avon Far Away Parfum from the Iconic Avon Collection

You know this is going to be a collector’s item. I love the dramatic black vintage style bottle with the gold wording, and I love the scent. It smells so beautiful.

Here’s another fun one for you. How about a bottle of Iconic Elastine Perfume Hair Serum? I’ve not seen this product before, but it sounds fabulous. Look at the gorgeous bottle with it’s gem-topped lid.

Iconic Elastine Perfume Hair Serum from Avon

There are 3 different formulas. This one is Amethyst. You rub this serum through your damp hair. Here’s Avon’s description:

Indulge in a shimmery scented lightweight formula that strengthens and protects with precious oils, amino acids and botanical extracts, leaving hair looking smooth, shiny and healthy. Sweet apricot and white floral scent. Comes in a unique gemstone-inspired bottle. 3.4 fl. oz.

BENEFITS
• Shimmery scented lightweight formula
• Strengthens and protects with precious oils, amino acids, and botanical extracts
• Leaves hair looking smooth, shiny and healthy

TO USE
Apply a small amount to palm. Rub hands together and apply evenly to surface of damp hair, working through to ends. Shake gently before use to ensure even distribution of pearls.

So – it has a pearly effect? That is awesome! I may need to try this on my silvers to make them really shine. How fun!

How about some Iconic Avon Jewelry?

Iconic Avon Statement Jewelry

What a beautiful set. Pink and gold look so lovely together, and this vintage style is very elegant.

It looks like the bracelet is on a wait list status, so you’ll want to be sure to sign up for notification when it is available again. Each jewelry item is sold separately, so I’ve linked the set to the Iconic Avon Page so you can view all the jewelry, including the silver tone jewelry items.

And here’s another jar of goodness that looks like a gem:

Iconic Veilment Perfume Body Gel

It’s a perfumed body gel that’s iridescent, and gives you luminous-looking skin. There are 2 of these. The one above is called Love Letter and is a citrus, jasmine, grapefruit, and rose scent. The other is called Sunset Bloom. It is a golden toned iridescent body gel that has a citrus, jasmine, ylang-ylang, and orchid scent.

And the next one I want to show you is the Iconic Mini Lipstick Color Set:

Iconic Mini Lip Color Set from Avon

This is a boxed set of 3 satin finish mini lipsticks. How cute are these? And what a wonderful gift idea for the Avon lovers in your life. I’m thinking Christmas already!

Here’s a link to the Iconic Avon Page so that you can browse through all the gorgeousness and pick your favorites.

I hope you enjoyed this Avon birthday celebration post, and that you enjoy all the lovely Iconic Avon products.

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

Celebrating 134 Years of Beauty

Let’s Talk Lipstick and Perfume

And, more specifically, let’s girl talk about Avon’s new Mattitude Liquid Matte Lipstick and Avon’s Far Away Perfume.

I posted pics from my What’s New Rep Book for you in a previous post about the exciting news of Avon launching a brand new beauty product, called Mattitude, and I finally got my hands on a demo sample. So exciting! And it is sooooo freaking cool! I’ve never worn a lipstick like this one before. It comes in a tube like a lip gloss, as you can see in the picture above. When you apply it with the wand, you’re just not expecting so much color to be present on your lips right off the bat, but it is totally a super rich color coverage automatically. It glides on so smoothly, and you can rub your lips together, and they are feeling smooth and silky, and then in a few seconds – it sets. When it sets, it is exactly as Avon has described it – It feels as light as a feather and velvety soft. It’s very luxurious, for sure. You could even layer upon it, if you wanted, but I would suggest using a lip liner first for precise application.

Avon has formulated this new lipstick using micronized pigments, which result in very vibrant colors, as well as vitamin E and poppy seed oils to ensure the most comfortable wear.

I’m standing – clapping – well done Avon, well done! This is super fabulous!

The Mattitude Lip line will be launching August 21st in Campaign 19 – which, I will give you an insiders tip – The campaigns usually launch online a day before the official launch date – sometime in the afternoon, so mark your calendars to be sure to get yours first!

There are 8 stunning shades coming out on the 21st: Devoted, Resilient, Relentless, Persistent (that’s the one I got), Driven, Ambitious, Tenacious, and Resolute.

I’ll be very excited to see what your “Mattitude” will be! Please let me know when you snag some for yourself.

And now for our perfume talk –

Have you tried Avon’s Far Away Perfume? O – M – G ! I hope you enjoy feeling super luxurious, because between wearing Mattitude and Far Away, you are there honey – absolutely!

Here is Far Away’s description:

Top notes of peach and freesia blend elegantly with mid notes of jasmine, osmanthus and orange flower to awaken the senses. Drift away with soothing bottom notes of vanilla musk, sandalwood and amber.

Far Away Perfume

It’s impossible for me to put in words how it smells, except beautiful. It smells beautiful. It is warm and soft as well. All the notes are very pleasant, from the first to the last. It is easy on the nose and makes me feel happy wearing it. I know that may sound funny, but I am very sensitive to aromas and they make me feel certain ways. I’ve told you in previous posts that I was an artistic candle maker, and I was also a perfumer. I’ve not worn perfume in a while since I became super sensitive after being around strong aromas for such a long time, but I have now been venturing back into the world of scent which I love so much, through Avon, which I also love so much, and have been enjoying trying out some of their new formulas, and I have been very pleasantly surprised by their latest creations and have been wearing them myself.

So, Far Away definitely gets the Jfay thumbs-up, as well as Velvet. Those are the 2 that I have worn and experienced for myself so far. I will be trying more and will give you my thumbs-up choices as we go.

Far Away is listed at $25.00 a bottle, but there is a special going on right now where you can get any 2 Far Away fragrances (yes, there are more than 1 Far Away formulas – I’ll have to give the others a try too!) for $27.00.

I’ve enjoyed our lipstick and perfume talk. I hope you have too. And I hope you’ll give these 2 products a try. I’d love to hear your experiences with Avon products. Let me know if you have a favorite that I should try. You can reach out to me here anytime (Contact form on the Free Sample Club page) or on any of my social media forums (IG, FB), or email me at jfaysbeauty@att.net. I’ll be happy to hear from you!

Till next time, stay fabulous!
