Avon Luxe Lace

avon luxe lace lipstickAfter I found eyeliner-love with the Supershock Gel liner from Avon a few weeks ago, I decided to give a few other products a go and make a little video to show the results. Clear favourites from this video are: Supershock liner (obviously – I must have mentioned this liner about fifty times since I first used it!) and the powder blush in Earthen Rose. Personally, I wouldn’t class this as a blush – but then I’m not sure what I would class it as! It’s the most perfect colour for contouring the face without adding any obvious bronze or blush – for me, at least, it’s just a couple of shades darker than my actual skintone, so it creates shadow to sculpt my face rather than adding colour. It’s also matte, so it doesn’t reflect light – it’s the most perfect face-shaper!

Other products tried and tested in the video are: Magic Face Perfector, a nice primer that works well at holding your base in place; Fresh and Light Foundation in Ivory; the True Colour Lace Hues Palette; the Luxe Lace lipstick in ‘Pout’ and the Luxe Lace Supershock mascara. All of the products are available from the Avon shop online. I’ve had a good look over the last few weeks and there always seem to be brilliant deals going on – last week the Supershock liner was four pounds!

    As an Avon representative I am always interested to see what you have to say about their products. Since working for Avon I have been pleasantly surprised to discover how good some of their products are. Thank you for promoting them in this video.

    I already wanted the super shock liner after hearing a few raves, but now you’ve made me want the bronzer. It looks great. Thanks for the lovely video. My best friend has been a staunch supporter of Avon make up for a while. I’m beginning to see why!

    Hi Ruth,

    Last week I ordered the eyeliner as I’ve been so impressed with what I have seen of it on YT and it was reduced to £3!

    I was lucky, I had wanted to place an order but to avoid delivery costs I wanted to find a local rep and low and behold the next day when I took my toddler to his fav playgroup, one of the mum’s was an Avon lady! My son got to play I got to shop – result!

    I’m really looking forward to getting my hands on it and giving it a try.

    Off to watch your video, thanks for the post.

    I am unable to believe the number of excellent content which is available on this website. The website is very appealing as well as pulls the reader directly in, the content usually are fantastic quality and are very professionally written. I’ve witnessed too many of these sites where it looks like they pay an 6 yr old to carry out the writing – Not this place. Your blog is definitely the very best that i have looked at in a longer while.

    Hrmm that is unusual, my remark got eaten. Anywho I wanted to express that it’s great to learn that someone else also highlighted this as I’d difficulties locating the similar information in other places. This was the first place which helped me understand this. Many thanks.

      Hi Parna,
      They are discontinued Pout brushes, which is why I don’t mention them, but I’ll be changing soon! x

    I was v nervous about trying the earthen rose b/c I’m quite a bit tanner and I haven’t had the best of luck with online beauty buys, but it really is as fantastic as you said even on a darker skin tone! Just wanted to say THANK YOU on a wonderful recommendation and keep up the good work!

      Oh good, that’s handy to know! It’s weird how it fits a variety of tones!
