Avon Makeup Maven 30 Day Challenge for June: Day 30

Hello, my Pretties!

Yay!!  We made it to the end!  Hooray!

And last but not least, meet my #30.


 
 
 
I love this lip gloss!  The color is amazing.  The tiny micro glitters in it remind me of mini Christmas lights!  Haha.  This is Avon Ultra Color Rich Brilliance Lip Gloss in Bordeaux Glow.  It is fabulous and looks great on the lips!
 
Sadly, these are being discontinued.  Booo. 
 
Well, that's all for this challenge.  I am so sorry it took me well over a month to share these with you but, hey, I did all 30 days and that's what counts.  Haha.  Thank you for sticking by me!
 
Now that the 30 day challenge is over, what is next on the blogging menu, you wonder...  I wonder too! 
 
 

Avon Makeup Maven 30 Day Challenge for June: Day 29

Hello, my Pretties!

We are well on our way into July and I am still posting my photos for the Avon Makeup Maven 30 Day Challenge.  Never fear.  We are almost done.  Two more to go!


 
 
I have had this Avon True Color Eyeshadow Quad for a very long time.  I had not used it until this challenge came along.  This is Mocha Latte.
 
There are two shimmer shades and two matte shades.  Perfect!  This is a wonderful go-to palette.  It is great for work time, day time, any time!  The colors are nicely pigmented and the textures are nice and smooth, blendable.
 
Right now you can purchase this quad and 11 others for $4.99, 44% off the regular $9.00 brochure price.  (Size: .20 oz. total net wt.)  Click HERE to be taken directly to the Avon True Color Eyeshadow Quad page in my online Avon eStore.

Avon Makeup Maven 30 Day Challenge for June: Day 28

Hello, my Pretties!

The other day we decided to take a little trip the island to take the kids fishing off the pier.  I was excited to go see the beach and even though we live about an hour and 20 minutes away, we don't go often.

But while the sweet-tart prepared by getting bait and fishing poles, I got ready doing my nails!  Beach themed, of course.



Avon already had a Speed Dry nail polish but they amped it up to a 30 second drying time, hence the Speed Dry+ 30 Nail Enamel.  I love this color!  Turquoise Pop is the perfect shade of turquoise.  The fact that it dries in 30 seconds is a major + !

Barefoot Beige is such an elegant color.  It's a nude shade suitable for darker skinned ladies.  It's so pretty!  These two shades together scream summer to me.  I love it.  Avon nail polishes are among my favorite nail polishes.  Even without a top coat, look at the shine on them.  Love the glossy finish!

Click HERE to go directly to the Avon Nailwear Pro+ Nail Enamel page in my online Avon eStore.  Here you will find 43 shades in 4 finishes to choose from.  Regular brochure price is $6.00 for .4 fl. oz. of product.  Avon also claims that you will get 12 days of lasting color and that these nail polishes increase nail strength by 80%.

Click HERE to go directly to the Avon Speed Dry+ Nail Enamel page in my online Avon eStore.  Here you will find 27 shades in 2 finishes to choose form.  These are also $6.00 for .4 fl. oz. of product.

These Avon nail polishes are free of formaldehyde, toluene, and phthalates.

Avon Makeup Maven 30 Day Challenge for June: Day 27

Hello, my Pretties!


I must admit that I rarely use lip liners.  I don't know why, I just don't.  I have only a handful of lip liners.  But this one is a good one.  This is the Avon Glimmersticks Lip Liner in Mystery Mauve. 

The photo of my lips in the middle is of my bare lips, with only a little bit of lip balm.  The second photo is of me wearing Mystery Mauve as a lipstick.  I think it's a very pretty, wearable color.  Perfect for wearing to work.  And when you use it as a lipstick, the lasting power is great.

Right now these are Avon's #1 selling lip liners and are on sale for 57% off!  Regular brochure price is $7.00 for .01 oz. net wt. of product but you can purchase one now for only $2.99!  There are 6 colors to choose from.

Avon Makeup Maven 30 Day Challenge for June: Day 26

Hello, my Pretties!

Today I have something super exciting to share with you.  It is a brand new mascara that Avon will be debuting really soon.  It's a totally different kind of mascara wand, the only one of it's kind!



Isn't this the most interesting mascara wand you have ever seen?  I was shocked when I saw it!  It's a totally new revolutionary way of applying mascara.  The packaging is so different too.  It's almost flat and not at all tube like.  Love the different style of packaging.

I will admit that application was foreign to me.  Haha.  The tip of the mascara wand, the part with the bristles, will bend for more precise application.  It still takes time to get the hang of the new technique.  I applied only one coat because the formula is very wet.  You can see it made my lashes longer but not really thicker.  I tried applying more but then I started to clump my lashes together.  I've only used it a couple of times so I need to work more with it and get the hang of it.  But this was a nice natural look for me.

As I mentioned before, this is not for sale yet.  But it's coming!  So stay tuned for it's release!

Avon Makeup Maven 30 Day Challenge for June: Day 25

Hello, my Pretties!

Today I am showcasing my favorite lipstick!  It was my very first Totally Kissable Lipstick and I just adore it!



This is the Avon Totally Kissable Lipstick in Mauve Allure.  You can tell I like it a lot because just look at the lipstick itself!  Haha.  I think this one goes so well with my skin tone.  Look at how glossy it is for a lipstick.  It's so creamy and moisturizing.  Smells good too!

Avon claims:
Full-coverage conditioning color infused with fruit enzymes and a blend of natural oils for lips that are visibly fuller, softer and smoother.

Right now these amazing lippies are 38% off!  Regular brochure price is $8.00 for .106 oz. net wt. of product but you can get it right now for $4.99!  There are 16 shades to choose from.

If you are interested, click HERE to be taken directly to the Totally Kissable Lipstick page in my online Avon eStore.

Avon Makeup Maven 30 Day Challenge for June: Day 24

Hello, my Pretties!

Slowly but surely, I'm getting in all 30 days for you all.  Very, very slowly.



Here is the Avon Glimmersticks Cosmic Eye Liner in Blackened Night.  In the brochure, this color looked black with heavy glitter throughout.  As you can see from the heart shaped swatch, there are glitter reflects in there.  But when it is applied to the eye, I think the glitter gets somewhat lost.  Even though you can see some glitter along my lower lash line in the bottom full eye photo, it's really not that noticeable.

The staying power is great.  The application is easy and smooth.  The Glimmersticks line is one of my favorites since they are self sharpening.  But I just wish the glitter was more apparent.  This way, it looks like any other eye liner. 

There are 5 shades of these Glimmersticks Cosmic Eye Liners to choose from.  Right now they are 57% off and are ONLY $2.99 (regular brochure price $7.00).  If you would like to make a purchase or browse the other colors, visit my online Avon eStore by clicking HERE.

Avon Makeup Maven 30 Day Challenge for June: Day 23

Hello, my Pretties!

Are you anxious to see what I have next on my list?


I'm on a roll with these new products.  This is Avon's NEW Ultra Glazewear lip gloss in Palm Beach Pink.  These are reformulated Glazewear lip glosses.  There will be new colors and of course, new sleeker packaging.

I enjoy the original Glazewear line of lip glosses.  They are creamy and glossy but never sticky.  I fell in love with this shade.  It is a pretty summer pink with loads of sparkly glitter all through out.  I for one cannot wait to see what other colors will be available.

This color is not available for purchase just yet.

Avon Makeup Maven 30 Day Challenge for June: Day 22

Hello, my Pretties!

Moving along...


That beauty up there is Avon's Ultra Color Rich Lipstick in Rich Ruby. 

The Avon Ultra Color Rich Lipsticks have gotten a makeover as well.  The tubes have changed and are now squared with a clear window at the top so that you can see what color lipstick it is without opening the top.

The formula of this one is so creamy.  It feels amazing as it glides on your lips.  It is very rich and moisturizing.  The color pay off is phenomenal as well, as you can see.  It's a beautiful and classic red.  This is probably my favorite shade of red that I own right now.

There are 40 shades available to choose from and retail for $7.00 for .106 oz. net wt. of product.  You can purchase this shade today by clicking HERE but the UCR Lipsticks available for purchase right now are still in the classic round lipstick tubes, not in the new square tubes with the window up top.

Avon Makeup Maven 30 Day Challenge for June: Day 21

Hello, my Pretties!

Today I bring you one of the latest shades of the Avon Speed Dry+ Nail Enamel line.




Meet Cruisin' Coral.  This is one of four shades of nail polish that was added to the Speed Dry+ line in their Fiji Paradise Collection.  It was a LIMITED EDITION shade that is not available online at this time.

The color itself was much lighter than I expected it to be.  To me, it looked darker, more vibrant in the brochure.  It's not a bad color, it's just not one of my favorites.  It's pretty and delicate.  The finish is pearly and glossy.  As for the 30 second drying time, it does dry FAST!  By the time I am done apply polish on my second hand, the first hand is already dry.

Avon has 26 Speed Dry+ shades as well as a Clear.  These retail for $6.00 for .4 fl. oz. of product.  Click HERE to be taken directly to the Avon Speed Dry+ Nail Enamel page in my online Avon eStore.

Avon Makeup Maven 30 Day Challenge for June: Day 20

Hello, my Pretties!

So, I took a break from posting last night since Day 19 posted in July anyway.  Again, my apologies for being a bad blogger and not posting the proper look on the proper day.  Well, with that being said, let's finish up the challenge and see the last 10 looks.

Here is Day 20.


This is a BRAND NEW item for Avon.  It's not even available for sale just yet.  But soon!  It is the Avon True Color Eyeshadow Quad in Purple Pop.

Avon gave their popular eyeshadow quads a makeover.  The pans are now numbered and are different sizes instead of the nickel sized circles pans they used to be.

I loved the shades of purple included in this quad.  My favorite shade was #2 since it's along the lines of a lavender purple with a pink duo chrome.  But, #2 was the only eyeshadow that I had a problem applying.  It was like the more I tried to blend it out, it would disappear.  I applied #2 to my entire lid and you can see the finish is a bit blotchy.  I'm going to work with it some more and hope that I will be able to get it working just as well as the other three shadows.

I cannot wait to see what other shades will be available in these new quads!

Avon Makeup Maven 30 Day Challenge for June: Day 19

Hello, my Pretties!

I have a fun product for you today.


This is the Avon Big Color Eye Pencil in Aquamarine.  These jumbo eye pencils are very handy to have.  You can use them as an eye liner or a shadow or even as an eyeshadow base.  They are extremely creamy and blend easily.  The lasting power is good when you wear over an eye primer.  I applied Aquamarine all over my entire lid and lower lash line.  After I applied a peach shade of mineral eyeshadow on top and it looked awesome!

Click HERE to see all 10 Big Color Eye Pencil shades available.  And make sure you grab one!  They are 50% off today!  Regular price is $7.00 for .056 oz. net wt. of product but you can buy one now for ONLY $3.39!  Yay!

This is my last post for tonight.  I failed at posting all 30 challenges in the 30 days of June because I always have to save everything for the last minute instead of doing the allotted challenge on the allotted day.  Will I ever learn my lesson???

Oh well.  I tried.  I'm bummed but I do have all 30 days done, I just have to blog about them now.  I'll continue later on today and finish posting challenges 20-30.

Thank you so much for sticking by me through this long, long marathon!
