Small Avon Haul & Review.

So as you all know my Avon orders arrived on Wednesday and I promised a little bit of a haul and review and I've now had a decent chance to try out all the products.

So I'll start with the Ideal Shade Foundation.
I bought this product because I've been vastly running out of Avon's Perfectwear Extralasting Foundation which I loved because it's a 2 in 1 foundation and primer, meaning no faff on with both products.
But as I got Gosh's Velvet Touch Foundation Primer for Christmas I decided to try this foundation out.
So I've been using this foundation everyday since I got it and found it really quite splendid.
This foundation goes on really well and aside from my velvet touch primer, the foundation also feels very velvet-esque and leaves a matte finish.
I've had this foundation on from early this morning and it's now 3.09am the next day and I still haven't taken off my makeup and I've unfortunately been to two jobs, yet my foundation is still intact and I look no different to how I left for work yesterday morning. So thumbs up for this product. Thumbs down to my late night makeup wearing. (Beauty Bloggers who religiously cleanse and tone. I'm deeply sorry, there's just nights you have no energy. All hale 3in1 makeup wipes).

Another product I bought was the Arabian Glow Liquid Lip Balm.
This product has been in the Avon Sale book for quite some time now and I've been very indecisive as to whether to try it or not as recently I've gone off lip glosses and more swaying toward just lipsticks. But I was very interested in trying a liquid lip balm as I thought this might have the same attributes a lip balm contains yet the glossyness of a lip gloss.. pardon my blabber.
So when this arrived I was very pleased as the colour looks very different in the brochure. I instantly tried this as I was dying to know what sort of texture and colour it turned out to be.
I have to say I was really pleased. This product is very pigmented. The colour turns out really strong, very similar to how it looks in the tube which can be quite rare.
The texture isn't too sticky at all and it feels quite conditioning on the lips and leaves a really nice pinky coral tint!
I tried this product out with my Barry M lip paint in 100 and it is very flattering and my next run in with this product will be over the top of 147.. as I've been loving my coral colours recently.
Safe to say this was a favourite buy!

The next two products I decided to buy was the new Mega Impact Lipstick which is featured on the Avon adverts at the minute.
I was very intrigued at the shape of these new lipsticks and decided to get a couple of colours.
I went for Charged Cherry and Fuchsia Fun as I love my pink lip colours.

What Avon Say about this product:
Colour magnifiers boost the colour by highlighting and reflecting the true colour, so what you see is richer and more impactful. Rich, creamy formula, wears for hours. SPF15.

This first one is Fuchsia Fun.
Both colours are really fun colours to wear and can be worn as many different looks. You can spread it thinly for day-time wear or thick for a full impact, evening look. The lipsticks also contain glitter and are very shimmery when applied and have a slight gloss.

This little gem is Charged Cherry.

Another item I received which I missed off my last post is their Seeing Stripes Blusher. I've had this product before and I loved it!!
Not only does it look very cool, it's just an all round fabulous product.
It also has a good sized mirror on the back.

This blusher is a multi shaded miracle.
It can be worn light, or dark or a mixture of all colours and is amazing for contouring.
The lighter shades have a slight shimmer and the darker shades are more of a matte texture.
I tend to use the lighter shades on the apples of my cheeks and the darker colours higher up to contour my cheekbones.
I definitely recommend this product now while it's on sale. I can't quite remember how much I paid for his but I think around £3 which is excellent for the quality.

I always love a good Avon buy and they don't tend to let me down. So high fives!

Love, Lipgloss and very tired eyes,
Dianne DD.
