I’ve been mumbling to myself recently about Harmons having absolutely nothing new. I’ve been known to talk to myself occasionally particularly about my favorite topic, makeup. I figure, if I talk to myself it’s ok so long as I don’t start replying to myself.
Anyway, if you know anything about Harmon’s you know they have a really great selection of new drugstore makeup quite often but lately I walk in and of course, there is literally a mile long wide aisle with NYX, L’Oreal, Maybelline, etc…etc…BUT there’s sadly no new stuff.
It’s rather bleak, cold, and terribly lonely at Harmons lately.
I feel a gloomy cloud follows me around as I walk from aisle to aisle muttering about the lack of newness.
You know who else hasn’t had anything new in LIKE FOREVERS and EVERS? Avon!
Remember when Avon used to have fun makeup releases!?
Ok, so yeah, sure Avon is a hit or miss kind of brands.
Hit: Haiku! Miss: Concealers! YAK!
But fact of the matter is they have always had some really fun seasonal offerings and limited edition color cosmetics. Cynthia Rowley, Jillian Dempsey, and a slew of others have worked with Avon and successfully launched some very fun products.
I mean, hello, do you remember the Rose Gold Lipsticks!? Those were awesome.
I can recall a time when Avon was launching a new lipstick almost ever other month and they crushed it, people! Avon makes a damn fine lipstick and many, many of their formulas have passed across these lips and successfully gotten a rave.
What happened to those days?!
Now, whenever I go to Avon’s site and I click on new there’s really nothing there except re-promoted gift sets.
I mean right now with cushion makeup being so popular you’d think Avon would be busy launching their own variation of it. But nope, nada…all quiet on the Avon frontier.
I do wonder what happened to Avon but hopefully they get out of their funk and start releasing new products again soon!
Have you noticed silence in the Avon world?
Any of your other beloved brands kind of quite lately?
Do share ’em!
