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?

Avon+SuperFULL+Midnight+Mascara+1

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.

Avon+SuperFULL+Midnight+Mascara+4


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.

Beauty on a Budget: Avon Color Trend Lip Duo Lipstick & Lip Gloss Review and Swatches


Avon is keeping it cheap and cute with it’s new Avon Color Trend Lip Duo Lipstick & Lip Gloss. This dual sided lip gadget has a lipstick on end and a gloss on the other, sweet the Muse loves techy beauty finds!

Click ahead to hear my thoughts.

This little guy is available in four separate shades for a mere $3.25 each. These aren’t a big size but they have just enough product for toting around with you for quickie touch ups. The novelty is the dual-end design which lets you smooth on a nourishing lip color and top it with a shiny gloss.

The lipstick side of the product is quite sheer and subtle where as the gloss is decently pigmented. You’d think this would be reversed with the lipstick sporting the richer pigmentation but it does manage to work as the lipstick acts more as a balm and a prep for lips prior to gloss application.


The color I tried Pink Fizz Duo which has a gloss that’s lilac pink is color and a frosty baby pink shade of lipstick.


Neither product is flavored so those who aren’t a fan of scented, flavored lip products will be relieved. The texture of both the gloss and the lipstick is nicely moisturizing for it’s beauty budget price tag.

Overall, Avon Color Trend Lip Duo Lipstick & Lip Gloss is a rather cute, inexpensive beauty find for throwing into your bag for touch ups on the go or if you have a bit of an oral fixation and always find yourself applying and reapplying balms or gloss this should appeal.

Likey!

Available now from Avon.

Avon Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus Expedition Review

in Avon


There is nothing as evil as bugs. Ugh. Spiders, beetles, and other creepy crawlers just freak me the heck out. Squeal! I was much more tolerate of bug’ems growing up as a tomboy but as I got older the tolerance got lower and lower and now I’m just deadly scares of bugs. I remember growing up circa the 1900′s, my mum used to hose me down with Skin So Soft before going out to catch lightning bugs with friends (omg! lightning bugs how horrifying! I almost swallowed one once but that’s a story for another day)….I dunno what the deal was but Skin So Soft was the miracle cure for keeping mosquitoes at bay…no worries my mum wasn’t nuts as all the mother’s did the same thing!

But thankfully we aren’t as primitive nowadays and Avon Skin So Soft has a bug guard that’s actually MEANT to use with bugs. My mum is rejoicing right now I’m sure.

This is so for me because I’m a mosquito magnet, indeed they vant to suck my blood. Avon Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus Expedition not only contains anti-bug’em repellent but also has an SPF of 30. Cool protects me from bugs and the sun, likey!

This 2 in 1 spray offers 8 hours of protection against mosquitoes, snags, flies, and other strange flying creatures that are fascinated with your blood or just want to hang out on your arm or leg. The formula is available in a gentle unscented spray or a Gentle Breeze fragrance.

If you’re outdoors alot in the evenings and the mosquitoes are buzzing around you pick up a can of Avon Skin So Soft Bug Guard to keep both the bugs and the sun at bay.


Available now from Avon for $14.

What about you?

Hate bugs?

Tell the Muse!
