Ok, so, it’s been a while since Avon anything caught my eye. Several years ago Avon was the apple of my eye with many interesting releases including some amazing lipsticks launches that rocked my world. But lately, well, it’s been kind of slow going at Avon but for Holiday 2018 I’m sitting up and taking notice again as they have a slew of very cute, iconic, and vintage makeup sets and items that will likely pop up in my cart this Holiday season because the gifts you buy yourself are always the very best gifts aren’t they!?

I’ve actually ordered a lot of this collection for myself already because it brings back so many good memories from Christmas past!

Have a look at Avon Holiday 2018 below and tell me what you think!

Avon True Color Mistletoe Kisses $25
One of my fondest and one of my first memories of lipstick is playing with the tiny little sample lipsticks that came in my mom’s Avon order. You see, my mom isn’t really into makeup but she does love fragrance and I remember her ordering products like Skin So Soft and Holiday lip balms! But the most important part of all was the teeny tiny samples of lipstick that she always let me play with! This set 60 mini lipsticks in a collectible tin that brings back so many great memories!

You get:

Avon Iconic Avon Lipstick $6.99
One of the best things about Avon has always been their lipsticks. They have released so many luxurious formulas over the years that I still treasure in my collection (most I can’t use but for whatever reason I’ve still hung onto them). These new, limited edition lipsticks have a satin finish and celebrate Avon’s heritage with vintage boxes and chic classic Avon prints on the barrel!

Avon Holiday Lip Balm $2
Much like those lipstick samples I was talking about, some of my earliest memories of Avon was lip balm! My mom always got my sister some of these Holiday Lip Balms! I admit I was young enough to lick them because they tasted so good! Eeep! Sorry for admitting that! This year Avon brings back some of their best loved flavors along with new flavors!

  • Marshmallow Frosting

  • Buttercream

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Yes! And love the lip gloss & retro looks. My aunt in Maine always had
    Avon in her home & handbag. She gave me many gifts. Good memory. And welcome back….hope your time away was a blast!

    • Isabella Muse

      me too! this is an adorable release ;-D Aw thanks! It was fab! I’m actually staying another week but def had to step back to reality and get some work done (blogging and real job).

  • Kimmwc03

    This is all so gorgeous and I’m definitely tempted. I used to get the lip balms for Halloween and Christmas every year.

  • kjh

    Fun. Glad they are back in the game. The tiny samples are quite nostalgia inducing. When you changed jobs or settings, the first thing you did was find the Avon representative!

  • Dee

    These are all so, so cute! The lip products are the ones I would get.

    So many AVON memories! I remember it being such a big deal when the AVON lady would come to the house and my mom would sit on the couch with her and order things out of the catalog. I think that’s where I got my first lipstick and blush. And I ordered a spoon ring from them! It was really the coolest thing and I wore it for years.

    • Isabella Muse

      Likewise! Def ordered some of the lipstick! ;-D I don’t remember the Avon Lady tbh! But I do remember my mom getting the catalog from a friend and pouring over it with her ;-D I think everyone has feel good Avon memories of some kind!

  • Violet

    I’m quite a bit older than you, but I too have memories of my mother giving me tiny lipsticks from Avon. She didn’t wear makeup either, but loved their fragrances. I used to apply the lipsticks to all of my dolls.
    I haven’t thought about Avon in decades, but now you’ve gotten me interested in buying that set of mini lipsticks and checking out the other products. Love the vintage packaging! Thanks for the info!

    • Isabella Muse

      omg your mom and my mom need to be friends ;D My mom is the same! She just doesn’t like makeup but she adores fragrance ;-D I used to color with them LOL! A few years ago, just around the time I started Musings of a Muse, Avon started to really improve upon their core collection but sadly it went down hill after Jillian Dempsey left 🙁 My pleasure!

  • Carol G

    When I saw that tin of lipstick samples boy did that bring back memories of childhood! My mom did not wear makeup but did wear lipstick. Her color was Pandora Pink from Avon. I remember her buying several tubes at a time and she would keep them in the fridge until she needed them.
    I love thinking about the old days. Our Avon rep would always chuck a few of those lipstick samples in the bag and of course my mom gave them to my sister and me. I love these retro prints on these lipsticks. Avon was iconic for sure but you are correct: not really a force in the makeup industry anymore.

    • Isabella Muse

      that is the cutest story ever! ;-D I’m somewhat sad that avon isn’t what it once was!

  • Mariele

    Uh oh… vintage styled makeup. I guess I know where I’m spending ALL my money this Christmas!! And I was able to resist everything else so well, too 🙂
