Avon: Makeup to Go Palette

Hello, my Pretties!

Today I have an Avon product to show you. As you all know, I am back to selling Avon again. I have been an Avon user since I was about 5 years old. It's always been in my life. Sometimes on and off but I always go back to it.

And right now, Avon is coming out with some cute stuff for the holidays. I thought I would share with you the things that I buy so that way you can have a better look at it in case it was an item you were thinking about getting.

My first order back as an Avon Independent Sales Representative was Campaign 23.

For those of you not familiar with Avon, a Campaign is what they call their selling period. Every Campaign has it's own brochure. Each brochure is valid for 2 weeks. So, in the 52 weeks in a year, there are 26 Campaigns in Avon. We only have 3 more Campaigns before this year is over and we start up again with Campaign 1.

OK, so anyway. Here is what I got.

Avon Makeup to Go Palette
Giftable box.

"Our portable compact opens to reveal eyeshadows.
Slide out the bottom of the compact to access the lip glosses
and blush shade."

The decorated mini palette measures
3 1/4"L x 2"W x 1/2" D
The outside of the compact is so glossy it was impossible to take a picture of it without the camera in the shot. I love glossy compacts but I hate photographing them. My apologies. But you get the gist. The compact is a glossy black with chrome like swirly accents. Very pretty. And it's also pretty small. It is about the size of a credit card just a little bit thicker. Perfect to carry in a small purse or evening bag for touch ups.

Eyeshadows: .24 oz. total net wt.
Lip glosses: .06j oz. total net wt.
Blush: .11 oz. net wt.
Avon describes this mini palette as:
"Everything needed for on-the-go holiday beauty! Makes a great present or stocking stuffer...and you'll want one,too!"


Swatches with flash.
Blush. Top row of shadows. Bottom row of shadows.
This mini palette contains: 8 eyeshadows, 4 lip glosses, 1 blush, and mirror.

The shadows are all shimmery and are really nice. I think with these 8 shades you can crank out a beautiful look or two. The colors range from a perfect holiday gold to a wintery blue frost to a deep dark Christmas plum.

And the blush, it is a peachy blush to me and I think it's very pretty. It is also very shimmery too. I guess you might want to take it easy with all the shimmer in this palette. I know it's the holidays and everyone loves to shine but you don't want to be more sparkly than the Christmas tree!

Lip gloss swatches with flash.
The lip glosses were what I expected them to be. Not that great. Rarely have I bought a palette that contains these little pots of lip gloss and actually have the glosses be good. Hasn't happened to me yet.

I will say that the glosses are really creamy. They feel good on the lips. While they are not very pigmented on their own for the exception of that bright pink one, I think these will work well over another lipstick just to add some shine.

And there you go! My overall thoughts on this palette are good! I like it.

If you are interested in this Avon Makeup to Go Palette, it is $9.99 (a $25.00 value) in the Avon Campaign 23 Brochure. You can also find it online.

  5. @Amber, I thought this would be a great Christmas gift too. I got one to try it out and see if it was good. I wore it the other day and I liked it. I might get one to giveaway for Christmas :)

    @Hunter87, yes, I think Avon was on the right track when they brought this out for the holidays. Really nice little gift. I have to check out the Two Faced ones. I don't think I have seen them yet :)

    @Jayme and Mendi, yeah, I saw that your Avon lady is your neighbor on your last vid where you mentioned the Anew hand cream (which I have not tried yet). How fun for you! Which eyeliner are you trying out?

    @Vintage Makeup, I think this palette is really nice. It's not as pigmented as I would like but for a soft and natural look, I think this will work well. I just sold one to a girl who doesn't like bold eye looks so I thought she might like this one. I really must check out those Two Faced palettes! :)
