I’ve fallen into the trap of ordering Avon again. They’ve got the cycle down pat: when I receive my items, they always include the latest Avon catalogue – and of course, I always flip through the catalogues – who doesn’t like to look through a mini magazine of makeup? Here are my recent orders:
I ordered these in May and received them when I returned from my trip.
Ideal Luminous Blush in Earthen Rose, and Heavenly Pink – $5.99 each
These are ripe for a depotting! Soooo much wasted packaging on these. These are well reviewed and you know that I’m a sucker for blushes.
Eyeshadow Primer – $3.99
Extra lasting eyeshadow Ink in Totally Taupe, Forever Bronze $4.99 each
The primer has good reviews online, and if I end up disliking it, I will simply use this as my primer for swatching. The Eyeshadow Inks are also well reviewed – I hope they last on my lids. These, along with all of the makeup items, are made in China.
Elements Skin Revitalize 2-in-1 Brightening Eye Roller – $9.99
This thing vibrates! 😉 I’ve been on the hunt for a replacement for the discontinued Mary Kay eye roller.
Perfumed liquid deodorant – $2.89
It’s an aluminum-free option and has good reviews online – seems a bit messy to use though, but hey, for $3 I’ll give it a whirl.
Mega Effects mascara – $7.99
SuperShock Brights Mascara in Violet Shock – $5.99
I got the Mega Effects mascara mainly out of curiosity! This configuration of the bristles look like a medieval torture device – have you SEEN this thing? Behold:
😮 The other mascara I got to try out a coloured mascara – it seems to be a trend right now. I nearly got the Royal Shock which is a bright blue but I think I’d get more use out of the purple one, which is more subtle.
Anew Power Serum – $12.99
There was an offer in the catalogue to buy this serum at a greatly reduced price (the regular price of this is $40) if I spent over $10 in makeup. I did some online research and it’s decently reviewed by Paula’s Choice.
I only buy Avon items on sale, so there’s that. 😛 I told the Avon girl that I’m not looking at the new catalogue, in hopes I’ll break the cycle!
Are you an Avon fan? Have you tried any of these items?
