Hey everyone! Here’s something really fun for you. Avon’s new VDL Tint Bar Triple Shot!
This is an All-In-One Lip Product. A lip primer, lip balm, and a lip tint. And it’s so pretty! I love the tri-color look.
Here is Avon’s official description:
Tint. Soften. Shine. This all-in-one lip product features a tri-color design that’s totally unique! The multihued layered formula works as a primer, balm and tint while giving lips sheer delicate color and a softer, fuller look. Moisturizing royal jelly and nourishing ester oil. Shiny, glossy finish. .12 oz. net wt.
VIVID DESIRES COME TO LIFE For dreamers and glow-getters, VDL is for the fearless. It pushes the limits to create a sensual and radiant makeup world. From South Korea, VDL offers a new notion of beauty with transformative formulas combined with global makeup trends.
BENEFITS • All-in-one lip primer, balm and tint • The tri-color design creates a multihued layer of shiny, sheer delicate color for softer, fuller-looking lips • With moisturizing royal jelly and nourishing ester oil • Soft shiny, glossy finish
There are 3 shades to choose from: Triple Red, Triple Pink, and Triple Peach.
I chose the Triple Pink (as shown in the above pics). It goes on really well and does have a really pretty pink tint. Not too much. Perfect for a sunny day out when you want just a hint of color + moisturizer + shine for your lips.
What kind of statement do you like to make when you present yourself to the world? We are all many personalities (and sometimes many nationalities) rolled into one unique individual, and I think that is so wonderful.
I enjoy a dramatic look, especially with my eye makeup. I always have. I suppose it’s because I have very dark eyes. But I do love my eyeliner.
It’s been a little while since I put on a full face of makeup, and it felt really good! I’ve not been anywhere in a while to present any type of statement about me, but with the arrival of my new Shubra Statement Necklace from Jarlia by Jolina in London (an anniversary present), it gave me a good excuse to get dressed up for a photo shoot.
Jolina designs gorgeous African Egyptian jewelries and when I saw this necklace I immediately fell in love. I had been looking for something special to celebrate recently learning of my African ancestry, and this was definitely it for me. It is so gorgeous (dramatic, as I love), and does make a beautiful statement about me.
I had a lot of fun getting all my Avon makeup out again and getting dolled up. I use Avon exclusively for all my skincare and makeup, and I really love it. I am a youthful 55, and I greatly appreciate that Avon helps keep my skin looking great every day, no matter if I am wearing full makeup or going au naturale.
Here is a list of Avon products used for this shoot:
Magix Dust Finishing Powder – I LOVE this stuff! It’s brand new. You use a large powder brush and sweep this all over your face for a natural glow. It’s made with mineral powder like pearls and rubies. I received a compliment the other day that my skin looked glowing. I had used this!
Oh What Fun Mega Makeup Palette – Can you believe this is still available? This is the really cool makeup palette from Christmas time. I used a pretty pink blush from this collection as well as a shimmery light pink and gray eyeshadow. This is on final sale for $25.00. It’s full of all kinds of eyeshadow colors, blushes, lip balms, and a couple of highlighters. It also has makeup brushes. You really should snag one while it’s still there. This is amazing.
I hope you enjoy making your own personal statement about you – who you are, and how you like the world to see you. And I hope that Avon can help you make your own personal statement with all the gorgeous makeup offerings that they have available. There are a lot of new makeup items coming on the scene as well that I’ll be trying out and sharing with you, so I hope you’ll follow here and stay tuned. I appreciate your friendship and you being on this journey with me.
Till next time, stay fabulous, and always follow your joy.
It’s me – trying on makeup using the new Makeover Tool from Avon.
This was really cool, and really fun.
I only wore base makeup to do this so that I could see the different lipstick and eyeshadow colors on my face.
Here’s a close-up for you to see the lipstick really good.
This was all live and interactive. I thought I would need to take a pic and upload it, but it was live video, real time. Look how well the lipstick sits right on my lips. You can even see the shimmer. This was the Glimmerkiss Liquid Lipstick, and you can see how the real product is going to look when you wear it – gloss and glimmer and all. So awesome!
Now I’m trying on some Glimmershadow in Silver. I thought perhaps I may be too fair for the Silver to show up, but hey, I think I really like it!
Or perhaps a purple?
The Makeover Tool will tell you the name of the shade(s) you’re trying on. And see, I have no lipstick on – the pictures with me with lipstick are all virtual reality, and it looks so real. Here’s a lipstick pic with a more pink tone:
I really like the brighter reds and pinks on me. I tried on all kinds of colors. This was so fun. After seeing my pics, my husband really liked the sparkly Ruby Glimmerkiss Liquid Lipstick on me. I did too.
It’s really cool when you visit the Virtual Makeover Page – You can find it Here. You click on a product that you’d like to try. Then you click Try It On. You will need to give permission for it to take pics on your phone or computer.
Once you see yourself on the live video screen, you can click on the different colors you’d like to try, one at a time. Each color will appear where it’s supposed to – on your eyes or lips or face (if you’re trying foundation tones). Give it a moment to appear and then you’ll see a little camera icon – You can click on that to take your picture with that particular shade or color on. It will show you a countdown clock 3-2-1 and then take your photo. You then click to download the picture onto your phone or computer. This works from both your phone and computer cameras. I used my phone outside as you can see. The lighting was great outdoors for this.
I hope you give it a try – And if you do, I’d love to see your pics! You can use the hashtag #jfaysbeautyblog on IG. That’s where I’ll be posting mine. I may even pick my favorites to share here on my blog. I’ll be sure to tag you in a post on IG so that you will know that you’ve been posted and can come by here and see your mugshot!
Happy weekend everyone! So, what are your plans? I hope something fabulous and fun.

That’s my favorite part of being an Avon Representative! Hey everyone! It’s Jfay, just hanging around, having fun while I’m making money! Cashing in on my passion, as they put it. How about you?

As a follow-up to my Magix Dust post, I wanted to share this amazing picture with you from Avon. It shows some of the gemstones that are used in this beautiful creation of 100% mineral powder. I say powder, but there is no talc in this at all. The formulation contains ultrafine precious gems, crystals, and minerals, such as Rubies, Quartz, Tourmaline, and Pearls.
This will give your face a naturally glowing soft matte finish without drying your skin. I had an inquiry regarding using this and having dry skin. Magix Dust, again is not a powder, but rather a gem dust. It really is pretty and very smooth and light upon my skin when I put it on. It has a nice pearlesque finish that is beautiful on the skin without being too much. It gives a youthful look – not too shiny – and not dry looking.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
Happy Easter weekend everyone! Hope you have some kind of fun plans, and I especially hope that you are finding ways to lift your spirits.
To help in this regard, I thought I’d post some pretty stuff for you to enjoy, and to pamper your senses with prettiness of all kinds.
And for ultimate pampering, who doesn’t love a scent and bubble filled bath? Woo Hoo! The new Senses Pink Magnolia Bubble Bath 24 oz bottle is listed at just $7.00. A totally affordable indulgence…
How about a gorgeous candle to light while you’re enjoying that relaxing bath?
Enjoy 30 hours burn time surrounded with notes of Water Lily and Blue Hydrangea. The new Spring candles are on special 2 for $25.00.
Soft skin is also a nice luxury –
These little hand creams are listed for $1.49. So cute!
Another great way to lift your spirits is to wrap yourself in very pretty aroma.
The new Peony Rose perfume is so beautiful. You’ve probably already read my review of this fragrance, but it is worth reposting! And there is also the Honey Blossom perfume with the aroma blend of Sparkly Apple Blossom and Honeysuckle Nectar. Two gorgeous floral blends for you to enjoy.
Now, how about something to pretty you up? I know for me I miss getting dolled up to go out on the town with my honey, but I have a feeling it will not be much longer now till we’re able to mingle at least a bit more than now. Gotta stay positive!
So — Here are some pretty makeup, lipstick, and nail polish goodies for you to get yourself ready to fly the coop (so to speak) and look (and feel) like a million $$
Such gorgeous colors and I’m really loving this new packaging for Spring. That alone helps pamper us with pretty.
I truly hope you and your family enjoy your Easter weekend. I’m planning a video chat with my kiddos. I know I’ll get to hug them in person very soon. I know you will get to hug all your family very soon too.
You all most likely know by now that Avon is there for you with personal care items that you can shop for online and have delivered direct. So with that, I thought I’d go in a more fun direction with you today. Even though we may be in temporary lock-down, that doesn’t mean that we cannot still enjoy goodies that brighten our days and gives us hope for tomorrow’s celebrations and get-togethers.
With it looking like Easter may be in the tank this year (hoping not), I am choosing to look ahead to May and Mother’s Day. And as I wrote to you the other day, my Anniversary is coming up in May, so yeah, May is where my focus is on at the moment for planning to go out and celebrate life and family. That is unless something else has changed since I began this post. Everything changes so quickly these days it’s hard to keep up sometimes. But anyway… That was a long round-about to get to the new stuff that was just released by Avon…
So without further ado – Introducing Avon’s newest fragrance, Avon Flourish Peony Rose!
The essence of lush, glistening blooms in the early morning light, this fresh composition of watery florals shines with notes of dewy peony petals, pink currant and sheer musk.
This fragrance smells soooo good. You of course get the floral at first whiff, then there is a freshness, and an undertone of slight sweetness. It’s really beautiful. It’s not too heavy on the rose notes, and not too much for my sensitive nose. It does not smell “old-fashiony” in the least bit – it’s rather bright and fresh I would say. I will definitely wear this. No weird after-notes of any kind. I’m typing this review as I am trying it on and experiencing the first notes right from the bottle, then first applied to my skin, and then the transformation of the fragrance notes as it sits upon my skin. It just seems to get prettier, and a bit softer. And you know – I do get the water notes. That’s the fresh smell I was picking up. Avon’s description says “glistening blooms in the early morning light” and “watery florals” “dewy peony” – Yes – definitely! I get the fresh water notes for sure! And the pink currant must be the sweetness in the background that I’m picking up. It’s so cool – Their description is right on, and I am experiencing every note that they describe. They do mention sheer musk, so that must be the note that ties it all together beautifully into one cohesive and enjoyable aroma. Yay! A new favorite fragrance and perfume!
I hope you’ll give this one a try. It’s perfect for Spring and Summer. Here’s a link directly to the Flourish Page on my Avon website. You can meet the perfumer and read his note about this new fragrance. Peony Rose is listed at $35.00 a bottle, but when shopping with me as your Representative, it is listed on my site at $20.00. So awesome!
Okay — So I told you that there are new Mother’s Day gifts that launched with this new Campaign 9, right? Well, one product in particular caught my eye, so I made sure to order one to show you.
This is called Blushing Beauty Powder Blush. Look how cute this is!
It’s blush that comes in a little cardboard type container and it has its own little powder puff!
This is so retro you do not even know!
I had a similar little container of powder. It wasn’t mine though. It had belonged to my Great Grandmother. It was larger than this one, very similar, but it was face powder. It had been given to her by my Great Uncle and he had handwritten a note to her from him on the little container. This reminded me of that as soon as I saw it.
It’s so cute – it fits in the palm of your hand.
I bet your Mom would get a kick out of one of these too. She may remember her Grandmother using beauty products similar to this as well. Avon is so cool to make these memorable products that bring back great memories that warms our hearts – especially now – it means so much.
There are 3 shades of blush to choose from – Ink Red, India Red (that’s the one I got), and Ginger Beige. Each one of these little cuties is just $8.00 on my Avon website.
I hope you enjoyed meeting these fabulous new products as much as I have. Both of these have brought me much joy – Joy to my senses and joy to my soul. I will have fun wearing each one, and I hope you will too!
Avon is back up and shipping. I just received a package from them – as you can see – it was shipped very quick and I’ve been seeing others that are so excited to be receiving their packages as well. It’s a link to the outside world that we can still enjoy, thank goodness. And Avon is being very safe. You can read about their safety guidelines as well as UPS’ on my Avon website. They answer any concerns you may have.
I am hoping that we can all get back to “normal” again very soon. I appreciate you stopping by to visit me here. Leave me a comment – I’d love to hear from you!
You can stop by and visit my Avon website and browse all the new goodies anytime you like. Check out the new brochure, shop by category (there’s a new Mother’s Day category for ease of shopping for Mom), check out the How-To videos and guides – there’s just a lot of fun stuff to help get your mind off the negative and to hopefully brighten your day. Not to mention stuff to help you look and feel pretty (awesome)! Yay! And I’m still picking up the tab for your shipping when you shop from my webstore (on all purchases of $60.00+)! Yay-Yay!
Here’s a look at some of the other new goodies just listed for Mother’s Day:
