in Avon

Dear Makeup Gods,

How are you?  Been ages since we chatted.  Might I say I really didn’t love Ungaro for MAC but shhh don’t tell him k?

But thank you SO much for giving  him a second chance to create something incredible with the new U by Ungaro Color Collection available from Avon.

Both cheap and gorgeous!

Me likey long time.

k, talk soon.

For some reason I have to clarify myself here…just a note…I never reviewed anything from the Ungaro for MAC Collection as I never hauled any of it.  At the time Suite Array and Creamsheen had released and I ended up skipping Ungaro since most of it didn’t appeal aside from the stains….a press release and images plus my initial thoughts on Ungaro for MAC are available in a link within this post, hope this helps!

Yup, the House of Ungaro is busy concocting a brand new color collection for Avon that’s available shortly from Avon.

Avon Smooth Minerals Review and Swatches

I’ve been purposely hanging on to the Avon Smooth Minerals Collection until the site had them in stock.  As I recall I reviewed some lip items a few months ago that weren’t available online and had to be purchased directly through a rep.  This caused for many e-mails asking, “but where can I get them if not online?”   I imagine everyone doesn’t have an Avon rep hanging out in their closet that they can bring out and order from you are wanting something….

See my mentality?

Point being I did wait until the collection was up and online until I hopped on board with my review so they are easily available now for your purchasing pleasure.

Jump ahead for my review!

Avon Anew Wrinkle Zone Line Smoothing Duo Review

in Avon

Lucky enough the wrinkle bug hasn’t quite bitten me yet. The Muse sports fine lines under her eyes but her face is pretty smooth so far thankfully. She recently got a chance to check the new Avon Anew Wrinkle Zone Line Smoothing Duo and didn’t think much of it as this is meant for crows feet, lines around the mouth, and generally little pesky wrinkles that crop up on the face.

After trying it out she was chuffed at how well it worked she even improvised slightly and used it in places not recommended by the actually instructions…what? She likes living dangerously!

Budget Mascara Alert: Avon SuperFULL Midnight Mascara

Hey chicas!

Budget friendly mascara alert here with the new Avon SuperFULL Midnight Mascara. Don’t you dare tell Armani but this stuff works almost as good as Eyes To Kill….shhhhh our secret k?

Check it after the jump!

Avon has a brand new mascara for $4.99 that’s pretty impressive. Honestly, there isn’t a whole lot of special about it. It’s a regular inky black formula and a plastic straight line applicator. See? Not really special.

However, it performs like a super star.

I’m unsure if it’s the applicator or the formula but it’s promise of longer lashes rings true. It doesn’t offer much in the ways of volume but it creates really great lenght and curl. The applicator fits the contour of my eye nicely and grasps all the lashes in one go. It doesn’t smudge, flake, and wears all day. I find the best results are when lashes are curled prior to use.

Overall, it’s pretty impressive for a $5 buck mascara. If you’re not willing to dish out a pretty penny for the new Armani mascara I say try this. Works almost as good, for serious.
