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!

Think Pink!

A Rosy Outlook

Are you a “pink” kind of girlie girl? I know, right! Me too! I love all things pink. So when Avon has a Think Pink campaign, you know I’m in.

Avon is encouraging us to Think Pink! It’s a pretty pop of color and a positive state of mind. And, they’ve gathered some of their prettiest pink products for us to enjoy.

First is a spritz of pure bliss with the Haiku Kyoto Flower Eau de Parfum. It’s a Floral fragrance with velvety violet leaf, white peony, and soft cotton musk. You can find Haiku Kyoto Flower Parfum on page 17 of the Campaign 18 online brochure (along with all of these pink products), but you can also find a special offer for all of the Haiku Parfum offerings on page 79. Avon is offering these at 2 for $27.00, original price $25.00 each.

Next up is bright Summer nails with Avon’s Gel Finish 7-in-1 Nail Enamel. The one shown above is Parfait Pink (#880-501) and is listed for $10.00 on page 17. For additional shades and a special offer, it says to see page 71. (There’s always special finds in these books!) And I see that they are listed there at 2 for $12.00!

And then we have petal-soft skin with Skin So Soft, Soft and Sensual Body Lotion with argan oil. This is listed at a special price of $5.99 on page 17, regular price is $11.00.

Last, but not least, is strawberry scented kisses with Avon’s Crave Lip Gloss. The Crave line of lip glosses feature gourmand scents and ultra shine. The Crave shown above is Strawberry Glaze (#054-347) and is listed for $8.00 on page 17. Again we find a special note on this one to see page 52 for additional shades and a special offer – Yay! And yep, I see that they are 2 for $11.00 on page 52.

It’s so fun to shop the brochure online!

And — while we’re in a pink frame of mind, and shopping fun pink goodies, why not flip over to page 178 and find Avon’s Pink Hope products.

The Power of Pink

These rosy designs and all Pink Hope products are celebrated as symbols of hope and healing. With each purchase, you’re impacting women’s lives by helping Avon support the American Cancer Society’s breast cancer programs and services.

15% is contributed when you shop for the cause.

The gorgeous jewelries that offer hope and healing through your purchases are: the Pink Hope Tennis Bracelet ($6), Pink Hope Ombre Ribbon Pin ($8), Ribbon Strap Watch ($20) and the Pink Hope Rose Quartz Long Necklace ($12).

I hope that you leave today’s blog post feeling good – positive – rosy – uplifted – empowered – full of hope, healing and most of all LOVE! Yaaaayyyy!!! Spread the love – spread joy – and stay in a Pink frame of mind!

Many thanks to you for stopping by. I’ll be back soon with more Avon goodness to share! Till then, stay fabulous!

Hey, it's Jfay, your friendly Avon Lady from 1993!

O-M-G! Do I have the hair going on! Haha! But, hey, my eyebrows are in fashion now.

I enjoyed selling Avon then and am really enjoying it now. Everything is so fabulous. They have amped things up, they are on point, ahead of the trends, and are still receiving headline raves about their products.

After 130 years of beauty (I don’t feel so old now) and empowering women, they are (as they are stating in the new upcoming Campaign 16) Shaking things UP!

Avon is Shaking things UP!

I am so glad to have found my way back to Avon and to be part of the Avon Nation, and Avon’s magic. One part beauty, one part iconic brand, and one part powerful women.

Always remember that you are strong, you are beautiful, you are inspiring and you can make a difference. Advice from Laurie Ann Goldman, CEO of Avon.

And I say always remember that you are fabulous, because you are!!

My Avon Look

Hey!  It's Jfay!  Your friendly Avon lady!
Hey! It’s Jfay!

Hey Gang! I hope you’re doing fabulous!

So — how much do you love makeup? I know I love it! And I am really enjoying all my Avon goodies, so I thought I’d share all the wonderful products I’ve been using, with you.

We all know that one of the most important elements of our overall look is the base, or foundation, and I am so in love with the finish I get using the Avon True Color Flawless Cream-to-Powder Foundation. It comes in a really nice compact with mirror, and has it’s very own application sponge in the underside of the compact – so convenient. I am so happy with the way the foundation goes on and how it makes my face look. As a very young 54 year old I need a foundation that makes me look fresh and not overdone, but still has a great coverage, but not cakey and not enhancing any little fine lines, and I get all that with this product. I was using a similar product prior and it was a bit more heavy and did tend to increase fine lines, but Avon’s Cream-to-Powder is much lighter and is not cakey. It goes on very smoothly and is easy to blend – especially with the handy applicator. It’s just fabulous! I feel fresh and youthful. The shade I’m using is Creamy Natural # 593-340. It’s on page 27 of the Campaign 14 brochure and is on sale right now for $8.99, regular price $12.00. (All prices I am sharing with you today are for Campaign 14 and are good till June 25th.)

Next up is the Avon True Color Luminous Blush in Rose Luster. This blush goes on great and it gives my cheeks great color without being too much. A nice fresh rosy look for me I thinks. And it stays on fabulously. The blush also comes in a very nice compact with mirror. It has an applicator brush and is on sale now too for $7.99, original price $11.00. This can be found on page 29 of the Campaign 14 brochure.

And my newest Avon eyeshadow Quad! I love this palette! It’s called Purple Haze. I just received this a couple of days ago. In my pic you can see that it looks like I’m using eyeliner, but I actually used the dark gray in this palette to line my eyes. Works like a charm! All the colors in this are so pretty. I love the violet purple, it goes well with my dark brown eyes. This can be found on page 14 of Campaign 14’s brochure and all the Quads are $8.00 right now. But wait! Follow this link for a special online offer of buy one, get one 1/2 off – Hooray! I told you there are sometimes special online offers not in the book. It’s like finding fantastic treasures everywhere you look online.

Let’s talk lashes, and Love at First Lash, my new very very favorite mascara. It’s awesome — it’s fantastic! Not clumpy or goopy, just great volume. I’ve talked about this mascara before and I’ll probably keep on singing it’s praises. It’s everything I could ever want in a mascara and it’s easy to remove. I love that too. The Love at First Lash mascara can be found on page 23 of the brochure and is on sale for $8.00, regular price is $12.00.

And now for the lip look! I wanted a bit of a contrast in color – still going with the purple, but a slight different tone for a great pop of color. I used 3 products for this look. I like layering on the lip, so that there is a good base and depth of color. Firstly I began with Avon’s True Color Glimmersticks liner for the lips in one of their newest shades, Pomegranate (#608-680). You should check out their new Electric Plum shade too (#607-698) — I think I’m going to get that one next – it’s super gorg!

Then I used the True Color Nourishing Lipstick in Delicate Date (#642-240). This is also a new shade and is a nice plum tone. I sometimes wear just the liner and the lipstick, but for a night out, I also added my new Lip Glow Lip Gloss in Lit – Yay!

Avon's Lip Glow Lip Gloss on sale 2 for $10.00!
Lip Glow Lip Gloss in Lit

All the lip products have specials going on right now. How cool is that? The Nourishing Lipsticks are 2 for $10.00, regularly $8.00 each, and this lipstick is so awesome. Great color and makes my lips feel moisturized and great.

The Glimmersticks are 3 for $9.00, regularly $7.00 each. These are so great too. No sharpening needed, just twist and go. The Glimmersticks also come in eyeliner and brow definer form. The Glimmersticks eyeliners now come in Diamond sparkly shades – so fun!

And one of my new favorites – the Lip Glow Lip Gloss is also on special now and you can get 2 for $10.00, regular price $8.00 each. These lip glosses really bring it with full color and enticing shine.

So many fantastic products and everything is on special or on sale, so it’s a great time to get stocked up. And with every $40.00 purchase you can get the Avon A Box filled with goodies for only $10.00. This Campaign’s A Box is a $38.00 value and is called Glow Baby Glow. Then once you add that and you have a $50.00 order, you get Free Shipping and a Free Gift! How wonderful!! I hope you enjoy shopping all the Avon makeup products and discover some new favorites for yourself. I know I have, and I’m loving every one of them. OH — and add a hot pink makeup caddy for only $10.49 right now too! You can see mine pictured above. You can find it on page 30 of the Campaign brochure.

Till next time stay fabulous! Jfay
