Avon Fiji Paradise All Over Face Powder Review & Swatches

Avon Fiji Paradise All Over Face Powder Summer 2013

The new Avon Fiji Paradise All Over Face Powder makes applying your blush and bronzer a snap. This ombre shaded blush adds a touch of a sunny glow to cheeks and face with a fine shimmery finish that’s quite lovely.

I remember when Avon introduced a series of graduating ombre blushes from Jill Dempsey many moons ago. I loved those blushes so when I recently noticed the Avon Fiji Paradise All Over Face Powder launched I instantly wanted to check it out.

Avon Fiji Paradise True Color Eyeshadow Duo Review & Swatches

Avon Fiji Paradise True Color Eyeshadow Duo

Avon True Color Eyeshadow Duo in Sunkissed

Avon recently introduced two new limited edition True Color Eyeshadow Duo Palettes with their Fiji Paradise Summer 2013 Collection. I picked up the color Sunkissed with a recent Avon order I did because it had a very pretty corally peach shade in it. The other shade Luscious Orchid is a purple and brown combo which I skipped out on.

I don’t technically like Avon Eyeshadow particularly their quads and duo palettes. Creams, powders…I’ve never really had a successful run with Avon Eyeshadow unfortunately. But sometimes my love of peach leads me into a purchase and in this case I decided hey, maybe the True Color Eyeshadow Duo would be better than the quads I’ve tried in the past.

Let’s fine out if it was.

Mark Marrakesh Eau De Toilette Spray Review

Mark Marrakesh Eau De Toilette Spray

Mark Marrakesh Eau De Toilette Spray is a rather visually stunning little fragrance. This comes in a sexy smoky curved bottle with a gold topper. If I rub it will a genie pop out and grant my wish for more hours in the day? I can hope.

This was introduced as part of the new Mark Marrakesh Collection which also features a few gorgeous little makeup pieces as well.

Take a look!

Avon Extra Lasting Concealer Review & Swatches

Avon Extra Lasting Concealer

I decided to give Avon Extra Lasting Concealer a try earlier this month since it was on sale. Hey, $4.99 concealer seemed a tempting morsel. Extra Lasting Concealer is typically $9 but Avon has had it on sale for a fiver the last month or so. This comes in 7 shades and claims 18 hours of concealing wear.

I typically don’t have a ton of issues with my concealer fading. Blame it on my drier eyes but my concealer tends to stay put once applied and very rarely fades away so I’m unsure if I really need a formula that lasts eighteen hours because if I wanted it too my current concealer can go a full 24.

But….

Anything to try a new concealer I say!

Avon Totally Kissable Lip Gloss Review & Swatches

Avon Totally Kissable LipGloss

Avon Totally Kissable Lip Gloss is a follow up to Avon’s new Totally Kissable Lipstick. Soon after the lipstick launched Avon followed up with Totally Kisssable Lip Gloss. It feels like such rarity for Avon to venture outside the realms of its cult favorite Glazewear formula so Totally Kissable Lipgloss seemed extra special.

Don’t get me wrong they do lipglosses here and there but it always seems like it is some variation of Glazewear. The Glazewear formula is ok but not really as incredible as it is marketed as.

I admit to being a little skeptical of Totally Kissable Gloss, I just didn’t expect much from it.

I was wrong.
