Lipstick makes the world go ’round! Or stay on course, or, well, it at least helps make us look and feel beautiful, right?
Did you know that Avon first introduced lipstick in 1919? O-M-G! Now, that’s a LOT of lipstick, and they’ve come a long way, baby (remember that line?), as have we.
Avon has many different types of lipsticks these days, different formulations, a vast array of lipstick shades, and some with anti-aging effects that help our lips stay beautiful and youthful looking.
To celebrate National Lipstick Day this year, Avon is offering a Buy One Get One Half Off Sale, July 29 through August 1st. Be sure to mark that on your calendars so that you do not miss this.
Click Here to see all of Avon’s lipsticks, and while you’re visiting, you can also Find The Best Lipstick For You based upon your preferences; your choice of benefits (ie: hydrating, long-wearing, plumping) plus your choice of finish (ie: matte, satin, sheer, shimmer). It’s a very helpful guide for finding your favorite(s) for all occasions.
Hey there! I couldn’t wait to show you my latest Avon haul! I am in love with this new Temptress Eyeshadow Quad from the Avon fmg Glimmer Eyeshadow Curated Color Collection. The colors are soooo gorgeous! My pictures do not even do this Quad justice. I’m so excited to try it.
I’m also excited to show you one of Avon’s new VDL Expert Color Primers for Eyes. There are 3 versions: Original, Serenity, and Shimmer.
BENEFITS • Preps lids for smoother eyeshadow and eye liner application • Enhances shadow shades for a more vibrant, brighter result • Infused with skin-caring Tahitian black pearl powder
A SHADE FOR EVERY LOOK • Shimmer – Great alone or to give your shadow extra oomph. • Serenity – Great for matte shadows or to brighten dull eyes. • Original – Great for your everyday basic makeup routine.
I chose Shimmer. I love a shimmery look (yes, even at my age! We’re as young as we feel, right?) I have given this a quick try and it really does make the shimmer eyeshadows go on easier and brighter. I’ll be doing a demo photoshoot soon giving these an “official” try. I just couldn’t wait to try the primer though. AND — I also paired this with another new Glimmer Satin Lipstick in Wildrose, for a completely purpley, pink, plum look. I’m really looking forward to putting this all together. I think these colors are going to be perfect for my Summer into Fall makeup looks. I can see this palette being worn lightly or dramatically. The lipstick can also go from light to drama with the addition of lipliner and/or a darker under color lipstick. I love layering makeup to achieve different looks with every shade.
Okay, gang, I am off for now. I hope you all enjoy a FABULOUS 4th of July holiday weekend. I’ll be back next week to give these beauties and try, and see what kind of look I can come up with to show you.
Till then, stay fabulous and follow your joy – always!
Cheers to Avon for their new Glimmer Satin Lipstick! I’m very impressed. The smoothness, the depth of color, it’s really awesome.
I didn’t know what to think at first when my favorite go-to Avon lipstick was discontinued, but I didn’t fret too much as Avon has proven to me over and over again with their newest product releases that they are going very high quality. They’re not abandoning the Avon products that we’ve all grown used to over the decades for cheaper knock-offs, but rather they are really amping up quality. Quality in the ingredients as well as up-to-date packaging, and keeping up with current trends. I’m really impressed – I know I said that above, but I truly am impressed with everything that they’ve done lately to improve and update.
And check out that gorgeous red tube that the Glimmer Satin Lipsticks are housed in. So pretty. The price-point on these lovely tubes is also impressive. $8.49 (regular price $11.00). You always get a discounted price for shopping with a Representative – like me!
I did line and fill my lips first with Avon’s Ultra Luxury Lip Liner in Currant before applying. I always like to do that for a full coverage lipstick look that will last. I highly recommend this new lipstick, and it will now be my favorite go-to for great coverage, great price, and very pretty color assortment. The shade I’m wearing here is called Hibiscus.
There are 20 beautiful lipstick shades to choose from in this new collection. I hope you find your favorite(s) too!

Spring is in the air… Hooray!! Are you ready for all the bright beautiful colors of Spring? I know I am!
I feel very happy wearing the new Spring makeup shades that I just received from my latest Avon haul. The Tranquility Matte Eyeshadow Quad and the Lychee Pink Nourishing Lipstick. They have really brightened my look and my mood.
I usually tend to wear more shimmery types of eyeshadows, but I was truly amazed at how beautifully these mattes go on. I almost stopped at the lightest two shades. They were so pretty. I may have to try that next time. And I’m loving this pink! It’s the perfect shade to show up as a “light” pink on my lips. Some lighter shades of pink will not show, but this one was perfect-o, so I am definitely a happy camper with my two new Spring makeup finds.
I hope you find the perfect Spring makeup shades to brighten your life. We all deserve a little pampering right now, and with Spring nearly here, it’s a great time to dust off the cobwebs and start anew (did not intend the plug there, but hey!) 🙂

Like to have fuller, more youthful lips? Or even softer, better moisturized lips? Yes, please!
Since the beginning of Winter this year, I’ve certainly been needing a little extra care for my lips it seems. I keep them moisturized constantly, but yet they are still dry if I do not have anything on them.
Then a light bulb went off. Doesn’t Avon have a lip conditioner? Perhaps that’s what I need… Yeah! Definitely!
So, I looked it up, and yep, it’s been there all along, right under my nose, so to speak. I was very excited to order this and receive it. Here is Avon’s official description for you:
Revitalize your chapped, dry lips with this highly-moisturizing lip conditioner for a softer, smoother feel.
BENEFITS • Lips feel smoother and softer • Lips become plumper, firmer, smoother and more supple • Dual plumping-formulated with retinol and collagen • In just two weeks, reduces lip dryness by 90% • Lips look more youthful • Adds volume to lips • Sheer coverage allows for wear under lipsticks • SPF 15
TO USE Swipe on your lips under your favorite lip color. Reapply whenever lips feel dry.
Sounds really fabulous to me! I’ll be using this every day. I’m looking forward to reduced dryness by 90% for sure. And it makes lips plumper, firmer, smoother, and more supple? Hooray! I have naturally thin lips, so I’m excited for that. And I love that it has sunscreen. Cannot forget to protect our lips just like we protect our faces (and necks), right?
And another bit of good news about this is that it is listed for $6.99, regularly $11.99.
I hope you snag yourself a tube (or 2, for that price!), and enjoy more supple and moisturized lips this Winter. Actually, I think this will be great any Season, especially with the SPF protection for your outdoor activities. Wear this conditioner alone or under your lipstick. I know I will!
And speaking of wearing this with lipstick, look what I just came across yesterday — Avon has a Condition & Color Lip Duo bundle deal available. I found this in the new special insert brochure that accompanies C.3.
There are 14 shades of lipstick to choose from with this Duo deal.
Valued at $22, this 2-piece set includes:
• Avon True Color Nourishing Lipstick, 0.106 oz. net wt. • Beyond Color Lip Conditioner, SPF 15. 0.106 oz. net wt.
This set is listed in my Avon store for $11.50 – Click here. How’s that for good news? Yay! The lipstick shade pictured above is Peony Blush. So pretty.
Have fun shopping this deal.
Till next time, stay fabulous and always follow your joy!
Having an issue with down-turned lip lines? Let’s see if we can work a little makeup “magic” to help camouflage, or at least deter that feature from being a head-lining act. What do you say?
Having down-turned lips and lip-lines can occur at any age, and may be the beautiful way God created you, so there’s nothing to feel badly about. But, we do have a few tools in our kit, so to speak, to help our down-turned lips not look like a big frown when we’re wanting to wear bright lipsticks out on the town.
So, let’s go!
We’ll begin with our prep:
Step 1 – Moisturize those gorgeous lips! I’m using Avon’s Moisture Therapy Lip Treatment. It’s perfect to keep my lips moist without being greasy, so I can wear it underneath my lipstick.
Step 2 – You’ll want to have some liquid concealer, preferably with a wand. I’m using Avon’s Cashmere Complexion Longwear Concealer in Cheesecake. This has a soft focus matte finish, and is also water resistant.
Step 3 – Simply draw upward with your concealer wand along the outside corner of your lips. We’re looking to help cancel out that downward look of our natural lip line.
Step 4 – Use a slightly damp makeup sponge to blend. I already had on my foundation, so this is done atop your already-in-place foundation makeup. You can set this with powder after application.
Next, let’s apply our lip color products:
Step 1 – You’ll need your favorite lip lining pencil. For this look, I’m using Avon’s Ultra Luxury Lip Liner in Currant.
Step 2 – And this is where some of the magic comes in. I am lining my lips all the way to the (inner) corners, but rather than following my natural lip line to the outermost corner, I am going to move inward a bit, and not stay right on my natural outer lip line (in the corner areas – top and bottom). If I were to follow my natural lip line to the outer edges, my lips would appear to be even more drastically down-turned, kind of like a clown’s frown. It takes a little bit of practice to get used to not lining right on the outer ridge of your natural lip line, but you’ll get it! And I always like to fill in my lips with my liner. It helps with color depth and a longer wearing lipstick.
Step 3 – Choose your favorite lipstick! You do not have to be afraid of going dark and dramatic now. We’re keeping those lips looking more upturned now. I’m going all out wearing Avon’s True Color Nourishing Lipstick in Candy Red.
Step 4 – Apply your lipstick within the lines of your lipliner. Be careful at the corners not to go all the way to the very outer corner area.
And you’re ready to go! Woo Hoo! Have fun!
But before I let you go, I’ll share my very favorite and top, top, top #1 tip to help down-turned lips: S-M-I-L-E!!
That works every time!
Till next time, stay fabulous, follow your joy, and always smile!
