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!
I just received my latest order from Avon yesterday! It’s always so exciting to me to receive my Avon box of goodies, so I thought I’d give you a little peek.
I got some of my lotion essentials, plus a couple of makeup items: Moisture Therapy Daily Skin Defense Hand Creams for me and Hubby, another Intensive Moisture Foot Works Cream that I had ordered last time – I really like it a lot, a Skin So Soft Comforting Shea Hand Cream (to keep on my desk), and then I needed a new compact of my very favorite Cashmere Powder Foundation, plus you know I ordered the new fmg Glimmer Satin Lipstick in Hibiscus, I’m so happy it’s here!
And not to worry, I’ll be showing you what’s inside the compact and lipstick tube soon. Which, the lipstick tube is really a pretty red, isn’t it? Avon’s lipsticks used to always come in a black tube, so this is great fun all by itself. Yes, I know, my Husband always says I’m easily amused! 🙂 🙂

How’s your relationship with you makeup foundation? Feeling good about it? Loving how it looks on your skin? I know for me, I like full coverage that is flattering and looks natural. How about you?
I’d like to share my favorite with you today. It’s Avon’s new FMG Cashmere Complexion Compact Powder Foundation. This formulation is like magic. It’s very lightweight, and not really “visible” as a full coverage makeup (as in harsh and cakey), because it is so light.
Look at my skin before makeup foundation application. I definitely can use some help to even my skin tone.
Of course the very first thing I do to prep my skin for makeup is to exfoliate and moisturize. I do not exfoliate every day. About 3 times a week. I love Avon’s Collagen Boost duo. You need to read my blog post about this pair. Soooo fantastic. My skin feels like silk after I use this set. I then moisturize with my new favorite moisturizer Physiogel Daily Moisture Intensive Cream. Wonderful, wonderful product and great for very dry and sensitive skin. I’ve also blogged about this product. For this makeup post, just a quick pic and link for you to take a peek at for yourself.
Okay, so skin’s fully prepped. Which, a quick note, I usually exfoliate and use the Collagen Booster ampules at night, so then the next day, right before I apply my foundation, I only use the Physiogel. Okay, let’s get that face looking gorgeous!
With the Cashmere Complexion Compact Powder Foundation, you can apply this wet or dry, or both. I usually do both. I use a separate makeup sponge (dampened), swirl that around in the compact, and then apply. This gives a great full coverage look. I then go back over it with the sponge that comes with the compact, either right after I apply the damp makeup, or after I’ve applied my blush, as a once over finish. As you can see in the picture above, as soon as I begin applying this, my face looks so much better, and so much more even-toned. I sometimes only apply this dry, especially if I’m in a hurry or if I’m not going anywhere that I need to get really fixed up for – like curbside pickup for example. But putting it on dry still gives me a very full coverage, and it’s so light that it just feels like my skin and not a lot of goopy makeup. It’s amazing. I love this so much I cannot even tell you. I suppose you can see by how much I’ve used in this compact already. I need to re-order so that I do not run out.
Looking fabulous dah’ling! This is my new best friend! I think it looks very natural, just like it’s my skin. Not heavily made up, which tends to age the look of our skin, but rather that my skin is just naturally flawless.
BENEFITS • Multi-use: can be applied wet or dry, and can be used as foundation or setting powder • Buildable medium-to-full coverage • Vegan collagen to keep skin looking supple and fresh • Lavender oil and artichoke and chamomile extracts provide antioxidant benefits • Amino-acid-coated pigments control shine and visibly smooth skin for perfected, all-day wear • Mirror compact with washable sponge • Good for all skin types
If you do like to use a concealer along with your foundation, well, there’s a Cashmere Complexion answer to that as well. I use this from time to time, but I usually get the exact coverage I need from the Powder Foundation.
If you’re interested in reading my previous blog posts regarding the Anew Isa Knox Collagen Booster, Physiogel, Cashmere Complexion Foundation and Concealer, and my full Perk-Me-Up Makeover, here are the links:
It’s always good to try to look your best, no matter what your age. I know for me, it lifts my spirits and boosts my confidence when I feel that I am looking my best and shining my best light. Don’t be afraid to experiment with makeup just because you may be over a certain age. We can still wear bright colors and look our most vibrant best. Try it, and see what it does for you! And I definitely encourage you to try the Cashmere Complexion Powder Foundation. I love it for my mature skin. I feel that I look flawless and not heavy or cakey, which can show even more lines. Love the skin you’re in, and take great care of it as well through your diet, exercise, moisturizing, and special attention like the Isa Knox Microneedling Skin Polisher (exfoliator) and Collagen Boosting Ampules. Your skin will thank you for it and shine bright!
Till next time, stay fabulous and follow your joy!

Ever had one of those days – or weeks? You can see that I certainly have. I am now on the road to recovery, thank goodness, but it’s been a very trying time for your ol’ Jfay here. I caught some type of bug on a recent road trip and it really took it’s toll on me. But in my always fighting fashion, as soon as I was feeling a bit better, and took a look at myself, I was like, “You need to pull yourself together, girlfriend!”. No doubt….
And you know what? It made me feel better. There’s just something about pulling it together and getting made up that changes my whole demeanor. How about you? No matter the situation – getting over an illness, inclement weather days, lock-downs, just whatever. When I’m feeling low, and looking even lower, it’s always great to take some time to pep myself up.
Once I made up my mind that I was ready to pull myself together, I first began with my skin. I of course was able to still wash and moisturize (barely..), but I used my Isa Knox Polisher and Collagen Booster Serum Ampules the night before to help my skin look better. I love this stuff so much. You’ll have to check out my blog post about this dynamic duo.
So, now time to get all prettied up! After washing my face, I then moisturized with my favorite moisturizer Physiogel Moisture Therapy, and knew that my skin was going to need some help in the brightness department, so I also applied VDL Lumilayer Primer Fresh for a bit of luster and more healthy radiance.
Next to foundation:
As you can see, I love my Cashmere Complexion Compact Powder Foundation. I first apply it with a damp sponge for full coverage, and then I go back over it with the dry sponge that comes with the compact to set and finish. It works just like a foundation (damp) and a setting powder (dry). There is great coverage without looking cakey or overly made up. There, already looking better. I use the C110 Cheesecake shade.
Okay! Let’s get something going on with those eyes.
Now let’s really add some color back to my face, beginning with some eyeshadow. I have to have eyeshadow.
Looks like I jumped ahead a step and put on some blusher first. I’ll show you that in just a minute.
But for my eyes, I chose the Avon Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Qaud in Purple Haze. There are 10 Quads to chose from, and they’re curated in shades that go very well together for easy application. I thought a pop of purple would go well with my shirt, and I like wearing a dark gray right around my eye to help accentuate my brown eyes.
Let’s put some color on those lips!
I chose to wear Avon’s True Color Nourishing Lipstick in Dragonfruit Blush which is very very pretty, but a little bright for the pink in my shirt, so I topped that with Avon True Color Lipstick in Frostiest Mauve. Perfect! The True Color Lipsticks are on Final Sale it looks like. So if you’d like to get some Frostiest Mauve for yourself, better get it while it’s still available. Avon is adding a lot of new lipstick formulas, which is very exciting, but I’ll miss some of my favorites.
The True Love Multi Palette is so cute and filled with 4 shimmery colors that can be used on both your cheeks and eyes. I wanted to try it out on my cheeks. I just kind of swirled the colors together and applied to my cheeks, forehead, and around my lower chin area. I really like the way it made my skin look more luminous, and certainly like I had healthy color back in my face. I’m really pleased with it, and glad I got myself this palette. I do not know how long it will be around since it was just released with the Valentine’s goodies, so if you’re interested you may want to snag one now while you can.
And my MOST favorite mascara – Love at First Lash. I couldn’t do without this. It really makes my lashes stand out with little effort on my part. I do not like to curl my lashes, and the Love at First Lash Mascara doesn’t seem to care. It does it’s job and makes my lashes stand out with just one coat. Two coats are really popping.
And here I am — feeling (and hopefully looking) like myself again.
It truly is amazing – the power of skincare and makeup.
Everything I use now for my skincare and makeup is Avon. I am not only a Representative, but a very devoted customer. Since going in all Avon, I really feel that it has been very transformative to me, for both my skin and my looks.
I love the ease at which I can use my Avon cosmetics and makeup. I like to look great, but not have to take 10 hours to get ready with so many layers, steps, and such. Know what I mean? Simple, easy, and very fine products.
Okay gang, I’m off for now. Hoping to feel better and better every day now. And this little skincare and makeup boost was just what I needed to help me go further in that direction.
I hope you take time to fix yourself up and feel fabulous too, no matter what the situation. It’s great therapy! Hey, there ya go – Beauty Therapy!
Hope you enjoyed a fabulous weekend filled with family and fun. Is that even still allowed? Haha!
One thing that is still allowed (as far as I know) is beautiful and delicious food. We’ve gotta try to keep ourselves looking and feeling great so that when we can go out and do more, we’ll be ready, and rarin’ to go.
I have a fun dinner salad idea to share with you that fits the bill for my “Pretty Food” Category. I call it my BLT Salad. It’s very easy to make, which is always a bonus. It’s pretty to look at, pretty to eat, and helps us stay pretty. Yay!
For this salad I like to use Romaine Lettuce, or even a combo Romaine/Iceburg. For the salad dressing, my husband mixed up some Ranch Dressing using both sour cream and plain yogurt. We like to make our Ranch Dressing homemade so that we can control the salt content + adding yogurt is an extra healthy boost.
For the toppings I used chopped tomatoes, sliced avocados, and crispy bacon. Cook your bacon your favorite way. I like to put mine in the oven. It’s something new I’ve been doing and the bacon comes out really pretty and crispy.
For the top toppings I used some crumbled blue cheese and some crispy fried onions from a can. I know… but hey, just a few for flavor.
I served our salads with a boiled egg on the side and some whole wheat toast.
So simple, so easy to do, and so delicious.
I hope you’ll try it too!
What are your favorite dinner salad ideas? I’d love to hear. Feel free to comment!
