Magix Dust, Makeup Finishing Powder Made with Precious Gems

Hello friends! Happy Monday to you!

I’m back, as promised, with the Magix Dust Finishing Powder + Powder Brush Duo that I was telling you about just a while back. It is now available to purchase as a set at $21.50 (reg. price $35.00).

I have this set myself, and really love it!

Magix Dust is made using ultrafine precious gems, minerals, and crystals. Here is Avon’s official description:

Ultrafine precious gems, crystals and minerals combine for an ethereal glow that’s pure Magix.

This weightless mineral powder formula sets makeup, diffuses light, visibly blurs pores, controls shine and blends effortlessly to create a silky feel and a naturally glowing soft matte finish. With antioxidant green tea extract to enhance and smooth skin. .21 oz. net wt. 
BENEFITS
• 100% naturally derived formula
• Pure mineral powder with ultrafine tourmaline, powder ruby and rose quartz
• No-spill, twist-and-lock sifter for no-mess application
• Suitable for all skin tones and skin types
• Talc-free, oil-free and paraben-free

TO USE
Apply with a brush and set evenly over face to set makeup. We recommend using with the Avon Pro Powder Brush.

I brush this all over my face, neck, and chest for beautiful glowing skin.

Magix Dust comes in 2 shades: Fair Light and Medium Deep. If you’d like to purchase the Magix Dust alone (without the Powder Brush), here is the link for you. It’s listed for $13.99 (reg. price $17.00), so yay! Still a great bargain for you.

Alright gang, I shall close for now. I’ll be back very soon with more Avon fabulousness to share. I hope you snag your Magix Dust Duo and let your beautiful glow shine in all it’s glory.

Beauty: Beautiful Glowing Skin at Any Age

Let’s Talk Neck and Chest Beauty and Skincare

How do you treat your neck and chest areas? Do you give them full attention or forget about them?

I always remember someone saying a long time ago that you can tell a woman’s age by her neck, and I’ve never forgotten that. It’s one of those things that always stuck in my head and I have been determined ever since to not let my neck look like yuck. Haha! Some things we can not help as we mature, but we can certainly at least try to keep and preserve as much as possible. It’s just like another old saying, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”

So, what do I do to try to preserve my neck and chest areas as much as possible? For starters, I try to keep it as simple and easy as I do my facial care, which actually, I treat my neck and chest exactly as I do my face. That makes everything easy and seamless, and makes it so that I never forget.

First up is cleansing and moisturizing. I use the same cleanser and moisturizer on my neck and chest as I do on my face. And those are my 2 very faves – Rice Water Bright Foaming Facial Cleanser and Physiogel Moisturizer.

The Rice Water Bright Foaming Cleanser is so luxe (and it’s on sale for $11.00 right now). It’s like a whipped cream texture and cleans so delicately, smells so good, and leaves my skin feeling moisturized. Love this so much. And I love my Physiogel just as much. The one I’m holding here is the facial lotion. I like this one, but I prefer the cream, so next order I’m going back to the cream, just because it is more luxe and I like the feel of it just a bit more, but they are both wonderful. The cream and lotion. So great for sensitive skin like I have. I smooth this all over my face, neck, and chest areas. Here’s what Avon says about their Physiogel line. You’ll love this:

Our Physiogel BioMimic Technology™ contains lipids that are similar to those found naturally in skin that help repair and strengthen skin’s moisture barrier, restoring the hydration your skin needs to stay strong and visibly healthy.

I’m linking you to the entire Physiogel Line so you can choose your favorite(s). They also have this in body lotion. So awesome!

Okay, so now we’re all cleansed and lotioned, what’s next? Well, if you’re of a certain age, you may want to go one step further and perhaps use a firming cream.

My choice is Avon Solutions Dramatic Firming Cream. This helps restore the elasticity of your skin. And super bonus, this is very, very affordable. Like $7.99 affordable right now. And again, great for sensitive skin. I have very sensitive skin, so anything I show you here that I am using, my skin loves it. Here is Avon’s description of this product:

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

I like to use this Dramatic Firming Cream along my jaw-line downward. Sometimes up a bit on my cheeks, but it’s not to be used around the eyes.

And there you go. Easy-peasy, and does not take very long. Just include your neck and chest in your regular routine to keep those areas’ skin looking as fresh as your face.

Now, if you want extra bonus points, here are a couple more neck and chest beauty ideas for you.

I also use Avon’s Isa Knox Collagen products several times a week, which includes their Micro-Needling Polisher and Collagen Boosting Ampules.

When I’m exfoliating my face with the Microneedling Polisher (don’t worry, it’s very gentle), I bring on down my neck and onto my chest area.

Here is Avon’s description for you:

A highly effective combination of gentle exfoliators, including diamond powder and perlite, polishes away dull skin cells, diminishes the look of fine lines and wrinkles, and improves the appearance of pores for a smoother, more youthful look. You’ll see radiance reignited, fine lines and wrinkles reduced and skin re-plumped…and remarkably renewed.

This product is so popular that right now you have to Join the Waitlist, which I highly recommend. This is so fabulous.

I also love the Collagen Booster Ampules, but there is not very much serum in each Ampul, so it makes it as far as my jawline. You could open an extra one for your neck I suppose. I just treat these like extra special treasures. But I do follow up my neck and chest exfoliation with the Physiogel. My skin feels like silk after I use these products. I know I’ve told you that before, but someone may not have read my past posts. I use the Isa Knox Collagen Boosting routine about 3 times a week. These products are sold separately. The Collagen Booster Ampules are in stock and available. Again, great for my sensitive skin, so I highly recommend.

And – don’t forget to exercise your neck! I did a blog post a while back called “Girlfriend, You Need to Exercise Your Face”. You can check it out here.

I include the neck area into my facial exercises. See — always treat your neck as you do your face. You’re neck with thank you!

And one of my last tips for neck and chest beautification is for when you’re applying your makeup. I’m sure everyone knows to blend your makeup down your jawline and have it gently fade so that there is no line distinction between your face and neck, right? Well, I also use Avon’s Magix Dust Finishing Powder to help with that issue, as well as give a beautiful smooth/finished look to my neck (and chest, if it’s showing).

This Magix Dust is wonderful! It’s made with precious gems. Here’s Avon’s description for you:

Ultrafine precious gems, crystals and minerals combine for an ethereal glow that’s pure Magix.

This weightless mineral powder formula sets makeup, diffuses light, visibly blurs pores, controls shine and blends effortlessly to create a silky feel and a naturally glowing soft matte finish. With antioxidant green tea extract to enhance and smooth skin. .21 oz. net wt. 

Magix Dust is on sale right now for $13.99. In our next campaign there is going to be an offer for the Magix Dust + the Avon Pro Powder Brush that I’m using. The set will be $21.50, and is a $35.00 value. I’ll post that when it goes up.

Okay! So we’ve gone through neck and chest cleansing, moisturizing, exfoliating, toning, and finishing. It’s really not hard to do when you incorporate it into your regular facial routine.

I hope you’ve found some inspiration from today’s post. I love sharing fun and helpful ideas with you. Let me know what you use in your routine. I love to hear good tips as well.

Trying VDL Lumilayer Primer and Free Sample Offer!

VDL Lumilayer Primer

Have you heard of VDL Lumilayer Makeup Primer before? If not, you’re in for a real treat.

Avon has now added VDL products to their product lineup. The new product lineup at Avon has really grown since being acquired by LG Household & Health Care America, Inc. This is very exciting because it means that Avon is now carrying brands/products from LG’s own very popular lineup of product, one being VDL. We now have product from The Face Shop and Chi as well. I told you a while back that things were really moving and shaking at Avon. So fabulous!

Here’s what VDL’s all about:

A brand for the imaginers and go-getters,

VDL is a fearless cosmetics brand that

pushes the boundaries of makeup to

create a sensual & animated makeup world.

They have formulated this primer to capture and reflect light. It is made with VDL’s trademark Lumilayer Prismatic Pearls. How about that?

I thought I’d give it a try, as it sounds so fascinating. I was very pleasantly surprised. It’s very light, and it looks like liquid pearls. No kidding.

Here is an arm swatch test of both the VDL Lumilayer Primer and the VDL Primer Fresh:

VDL Lumilayer Primer and Lumilayer Primer Fresh Swatch Test

I put this on thicker than you would on your face, so that you could see the sheen and tone of each product. The VDL Lumilayer Primer is the one on the left – the pink toned product, and the Lumilayer Primer Fresh is on the right, the warmer toned product.

I’ve also done the swatch test on an orange, here’s how that went:

VDL Lumilayer Primer Swatch Test

You can see the pearly shine, right? So pretty!

VDL Lumilayer Primer Fresh Swatch Test

And the Primer Fresh. You can see that it is a warmer tone.

VDL Lumilayer Primer and Primer Fresh Swatch Test

I think the orange swatch test showed off the VDL Lumilayer luminance, and the arm test showed the color tone and how it would enhance your own skin tone, so I’m glad I tried both types of swatch tests.

And I did try it on under my foundation — I’m calling this look Curbside Pickup Chic:

Wearing VDL Lumilayer Primer

You can see how it gave my face a nice pearly glow. I topped it with Magix Dust Finishing Powder which is made of finely ground pearls and gems, and then dabbed a bit of matte powder on top of that because I was really glowing at that point! But I think this will really look great for all your summertime looks (and beyond – think about fabulous holiday looks coming up!). Check my new super short Pixie cut – I went for it! Haha!

But yeah, I think it really enhanced my light makeup look, and will also be giving it a try with a full makeup look soon. I’ll let you know how it goes. The pic above was just a quick trip to the store with hubby look. But you know, it’s fun to do a little something extra special for yourself even when it’s just a simple chore kind of day.

I hope you’ll do something special for yourself every day, and I hope you’ll give VDL a try. And speaking of giving VDL Lumilayer Primer a try. How about a free sample of both the Lumilayer Primer and Primer Fresh from me?

Free VDL Lumilayer Primer and Primer Fresh Sample Offer

I am offering a free sample of both the VDL Lumilayer Primer and Lumilayer Primer Fresh to anyone who makes a purchase from my Avon website during c.16, which is until July 21st. Current customers, new customers, everyone is eligible for this offer. No coupon code or anything required. I will see when your order arrives and put you on the list to receive a free sample.

Magix Dust 100% Pure Mineral Finishing Powder from Avon

Magix Dust Finishing Powder

Hey everyone! How are you doing? Ready for something amazing?

How’d you like a little makeup magic (or Magix) in your life? I’m talking Magix Dust Finishing Powder magic. This stuff is really really cool. Magix Dust is Avon’s newest addition to their Magix line, and I am loving it!

Magix Dust

Get this — Magix Dust is made from a 100% pure mineral powder blend of micro-milled rose quartz, rubies, tourmaline and pearls. And that’s just what it looks like on — Pearlesque — It is so pretty. It is subtle, but noticeable. And definitely not overdone. I do not feel like I look like a glitter queen, but rather, radiant and glowy. Magix Dust sets makeup, diffuses light, visibly blurs pores, controls shine (zero flashback when taking pics), and blends effortlessly.

The Magix Dust formula also contains antioxidant green tea extract to enhance and smooth skin. It is talc, oil, and paraben-free. It is very light and gorgeous.

I paired it with my Avon Blushing Beauty Powder Blush that I showed you in my Mother’s Day post.

Magix Dust Mineral Powder

The Blushing Beauty Powder is so wonderful. It also has a nice sheen and is so lovely to apply with the little powder puff. The little powder puff is soft and actually quite easy to use as a blush applicator. No stiff color line, just a delightful way to color my cheek area. It makes my skin look really pretty, as the duo brings an appreciated hint of youthfulness. This is great for any age group in my opinion.

Look Radiant and Beautiful

Unfortunately, I must tell you that the Blushing Beauty Powder Blush is no longer available. One of my customers was very lucky to order hers on back-order (you can back-order from 1 campaign back) last evening just in time before the new Campaign rolled over. Be sure to sign up to follow this blog so that you can be informed of new and limited edition products that Avon releases for special occasions and holidays. I will be sure to let you know if I spy Blushing Beauty in the Good Buys makeup sale specials. Avon posts some seasonal items there that have not yet sold out, but are on special final sale offer. You will definitely want to check out this category for great mark-down prices. I just went by there and saw some amazing products and deals. Some are from the Christmas limited edition specials. But back to the subject at hand.

The good news is that you can snag yourself some Magix Dust, and it is on special right now for $12.99, regular price is $17.00, so a great deal.

When you receive your Magix Dust you will find a clear plastic covering over the little sifter holes. Peel that off, and you can also open and close the openings with the raised areas on the side of the sifter. When the sifter was open, I tapped on the side of the container to bring the powder to the surface.

100% Pure Mineral Powder

Tap in your Avon Pro Powder Brush, and apply. The Pro Powder Brush is also on special right now for $10.49, regular price $16.00.

Avon’s Pro Powder Brush

I hope you enjoyed today’s blog post. I have more Avon goodness to share with you coming up very soon. You’ll definitely want to stay tuned for all the new product releases coming up. It’s all very exciting!

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