Beauty Products by Avon – First Impression

 

Hey everyone! Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Today, I’m just going to share with you two makeup products I picked up from a bazaar last weekend. We were supposed to go to the flea market but they were closed. So, as we were driving on our way back, we saw a bazaar sign. Long story short, very happy to find this random community center that hosted this event.

First of all, it’s indoor and with air condition. Yay! One thing you would hear me complaining over and over again is the summer heat.

Anyways, I’m going to do a quick first impression review today for you guys. Here they are:-

So, let’s roll …

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I don’t remember owning any Avon makeup products before beside a vintage fragrance I got awhile ago. You like to know what I’m talking about, head over to my instagram, girls. I’ve heard of Avon brand per say when I was in my teenage years but most of the talks among my aunts were quite negative that make sense why I never own this brand before.

I was skeptical at first but was completely sold when I saw the packaging of this beautiful sunny embossed product in a nicely packed compact powder.

First up is the Avon Glow Bronzing Powder in P202 Warm Glow for $4.00. Net wt: 0.37 oz. Available in five different shades online for $9.99 (regular $15.00)

Frankly speaking, I’ve quite a few bronzer lying around lazy in my drawer. Yes, I don’t need another bronzer that for sure. In fact, just last weekend, I started to pull out my favorite bronzer from Wet n Wild to wear over the weekend and have been reaching for it since then. It’s summer and what better time than to contour, highlight and bronze up.

This bronzer comes with a nice brown compact packaging and a decent size mirror on the cover. The packaging is nicely made but the formula is one thing they need to improve on. Otherwise, it would be a good product to have.

Who wouldn’t, right! It’s so pretty and it’s summer after all. Sadly,the pros stops here.

Although, I paid $4.00 only for this glow bronzer, thank goodness! I wasn’t impressed at all with the formula.Some of you might liked it and raved abut it but honestly, it’s definitely a miss for me.

The texture is rough and not creamy at all to touch.Pigmentation is okay but it doesn’t wow me. I feel that it’s too powdery and a lot goes along the way. You definitely need to dab a lot of products in order to get a decent finishing look. By then it was too glow-y for my liking.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Here is the swatch directly from the pan. You can see how golden shimmery this bronzer is up closed.

The shade of this Glow Bronzing Powder has more shimmer and fragrance than an actual bronze color do. Yes, it smells really nice but it doesn’t perform to what a bronzer should. It lays down quite a bit of shimmer instead of actual bronzing color.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Overall, I’m quite disappointed with this product. It contains too much luminous effect for a bronzer. Laying it would make skin glow like a disco ball. One last thing, I like to put it out for you, is that it’s lacking in terms of staying power. I was at home the whole time to test it out. I was out to pick up my kid from school by car and that was not even 2 hours of wear, all the glow has already faded.

Conclusion: I really want to like it but it feels like a cheap formula to me. I would not recommend this. In my opinion, I think you could find a much better product from the drugstores for the same price if not cheaper. That’s all I have to say about the glow bronzer.

Next is the quad eyeshadow palette.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Many of you might have already know that I’m obsessed with palettes. So, as you can see here, I got one here with me to share my thoughts and opinion on.

One thing I wanted to mention is that I haven’t heard much about Avon eyeshadow that much and thought of giving it a try. Yay! I was excited to try.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The True Color Eyeshadow Quad in Mocha Latte is brand new to me. The shades in this palette include a Highlight (Champagne), Lid (Bronze), Crease (Brown), and Define (Dark Brown). The shades don’t have specific names, as it’s named after the purpose for each color.

I really like the packaging. It comes with a decent size mirror and a dual-ended sponge applicator. It’s of a sturdy compact packaging with Avon logo printed on the lid.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Available in thirteen pretty shades at Avon online for $12.00. The texture is smooth and easy to blend although I noticed that the matte shades kicked up some powder. Averagely pigmented. There are two mattes and two satin finish in this quad.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

They swatch okay but not over the top or that you have to rush out and get it. If you like Avon products, then you would like it.

My dream palette consists of more neutrals, because I tend to go for a more basic eye look while working up my lips with reds (gotta have my reds)! So – I’m really hoping that one day we can have customizable palettes or quads from Avon! Seriously – how awesome would that be!

I hope this post is helpful and interesting. Let me know what you want me which product reviews you like me to do next? Comment it down below.

Thank you again for stopping by to read and I’ll see you again on my next one. Bye!

CLASSIC KHOL EYELINER – BROWN

 

eyeliner by prestige

Classic Khol Eyeliner Pencil by Prestige Cosmetics. Net wet: 0.04 oz for $3.95 at online website. You can find this brand at Ulta or London Drugs and some selected Canadian drugstores at Shoppers Drug Mart, Jean Coutu and Uniprix.

I picked up mine at Uniprix while I was there to get my prescription drugs. I’ve several of these eyeliners by Prestige in different colors and I’m pleased to say that it has perform well as an eyeliner in my opinion.

This eyeliner is a beautiful, Brown. While it seems not my typical eyeliner color, I have worn it in place of my typical black eyeliner for a few days and have found it to be gorgeous.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The formulation is fairly creamy on the eye. While I think it could glide on a bit easier, it is still a fairly good texture. You can use it for smokey eye makeup which I’ll show you in this post.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

It’s not bad for the price, and there are plenty of traditional and funky colors available, but it needs sharpening which is the only downside I noticed.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I really like how it glides without resulting in tugging or pulling on your lash line.

That concludes my review today. Hope you liked this post and find it interesting.

Which is your favorite color eyeliner apart from the typical black liner? I love to hear your comments in the section below.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read.

Beauty Mini Haul On Elf And LA Colors

elf, la colors haul

An online purchase totally inspired by my blogger friends and YTers – Elf brushes and Brightening shadow palette with LA Colors products. I ordered just a few to try out this beauty online store called Miss A. Everything here is only $1.00!!!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Emilynoel83 mentioned some Brightening Eye Colors by Elf that are dupes of MAC or of good quality, so I got Butternut (beige and pink toned, with a dark mauve and bronzy gold, pretty!). Great value for the money at $1 a piece!

I had high hope for these but they swatch more sheer than I expected given the texture were creamy and pigmented except the Beige and Pink tones. I love love the two darker shades which are impressively pigmented and so smooth. In my opinion, the lighter shadows could work better as bases for that reason.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I’ve seen L.A. Colors products in some Dollar stores which I did a beauty haul many months ago but I’ve never seen this cute Single Pot Eyeshadow and I was excited to try it out when I stumbled over at Miss A online store. The shade I got is in Bare and I wear it as my eyeshadow base. The texture is very smooth and soft. I love the pretty embossed design in the pot with a bunny ear type sponge brush hooked on the cover.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

All 3 will earn their spots in the stash. I got the 3 Color Eyeshadow Palette by L.A Colors in Dandelion for only $1.00. Net wt: 0.19 oz. You’ll get Pale Yellow, Peachy Bronze and Dark Taupe in this Trio. L.A Colors is also a cruelty free makeup and I’m super excited to share all cruelty free products in this post.

Well, honestly I don’t really need anymore eyeshadows but I needed some fillers since I’m paying for the shipping already ($5.95), and found some palettes that were already on sale.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

For brushes, I got the classic Eyeshadow Brush, Eye Crease and Blending Eye Brush. Have always been a fan of their foundation and eyeshadow brushes, but since Target left us with Elf, I headed to look online for their brushes. So, I picked only three for now and I know I’ll be ordering for more 😛

The brush material are soft and dense. It has printing of the type of brush on the handle which is helpful but would be even better if they put numbers on the brush too. Anyways, I’ll let you know how these brushes perform once I have a chance to try them and review on the eyeshadows coming up next. So, remember to stay tuned!

Have you found LA Colors anywhere else? Dont forget to leave you comments down below.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read.

My Beauty Madness Wednesday|BH Wild At Heart Baked Eyeshadow Palette|Review

bh wild at heart palette

It’s August already and see how time flies. The weather is still scorching hot and I’m not going to lie if I said I do wish for some rain!

Anyways, makeup is more fun to talk about so that’s what I’m going to talk about on My Beauty Madness Wednesday (I talked about my 26 Color Eyeshadow Palette by BH) which I’ll put a link here. I finally pulled a BH Cosmetics orders when they offer $5 off the shipping costs and a free palette with purchase above $25.00. I ordered a few palettes to get this free eyeshadow palette lol! They shipped it out a week after, and it took a bit over another week to get to me. I’m excited I want to jump straight into this Free Eyeshadow Palette! Envy or Jealous don’t be … you can order them online at BH Cosmetics.

BH Cosmetics Wild At Heart Baked Eyeshadow Palette in 9-pan shadows. Net wt: 0.62 oz (Price on the website $8.00). That’s an insanely low price for such good quality eyeshadow. I love it!

Whether you want to go neutral, bold or add a pop of color– you’re sure to find a shade to fit your mood. All the shadows are highly-pigmented and I can actually wear these eyeshadows like forever!

Color swatch directly from the pan and swatched on bare hand. I love a nice bright eyeshadow. Just look at those pigments! Oh love it, love it! One that pops and the purple and pink does just what I need it to! So yay!

The pigmentation is super gorgeous and it looks wet and can I ask you to be dazzled by the prettiness of this formula. I’m like aaaahhh!!! (Song by Ariel from the little mermaid) when I did these color swatches. It’s freaking amazing! Don’t you think!

bh eye makeup look witht wild at heart

You can wear them wet-to-dry shadows with a lightweight feel. But what I did for with these several different eye makeup looks is by using dry application. It does deliver intense color payoff to satisfy your desire to be absolutely wild. I love, love this palette!

Overall, I love the whole palette and can’t wait to buy more of the baked eyeshadow palette! I know that bright eyeshadows may not be everyone’s cup of tea but if you love shimmer, high pigmentation and good quality intense look eyeshadow then I recommend you try it. It’s not expensive and it won’t put a hole in your pocket. You can use the promo code: FREESHADOW to enjoy this advantage.

So that’s My Beauty Madness Wednesday find at BH Cosmetics and in my opinion this is a super buy and if you use the promotion code, you can either get free shipping or free eyeshadow or both. So, what are you waiting for! Go! Check out their website now.

I already wishlist BH Cosmetics other new products. I hooked with this brand. BH Cosmetic is a cruelty free – No Animal Testing makeup brand. So it’s a yay!

Have you got your hands on this palette yet? I love to hear your comments on the section below.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read and showing your love ❀
