Fashion and Fun after Fifty

Posts Tagged ‘cosmetics

Hello Friends, I hope you had an enjoyable weekend!

As an Avon Independent Sales Rep I probably have more cosmetics than I need but I like trying new products so that I can spread the word to my customers or answer any questions they may have. I don’t particualarly like to spend a lot of money on makeup and usually stick to an under $5.00 price point but I was curious about the new Mega Effects Mascara.

The $10 cost made me a bit apprehensive as well as the fact that it looked a little more complicated to apply and I don’t have a lot of time in the morning, but I bit the bullet and ordered it. The first morning I tried it I ended up poking myself in the eye and getting smudges on my lower lashes, I was trying to use it like a traditional brush.

The WonderBrush handle is like a mini paint brush that is adjustable, and is shaped to fit the natural curve of your lashes.

I am going to be honest and say that it took two mornings for me to become comfortable in using it but now it’s just as quick to apply as any other mascara. It provides great volume, there’s no clumping, and it’s easy to remove at night.

This was definitely worth the price.

I was gifted a product sample of bareMinerals READY Eyeshadow 2.0, for being a “Beauty Ambassador” for *Ladies Home Journal.  Now for the life of me I don’t remember signing up to become an “Ambassador“, but glad that I did because you know I like to get things FREE!

Ladies Home Journal Magazine

I am not a beauty expert nor have I ever claimed to be, but I’ve been known to try new products and then share my opinion, usually an Avon product because that’s what I sell.  So when I get free samples in the mail or from magazines I like to try them as an alternative to my Avon products.  The bareMinerals Eyeshadow READY 2.0, is a duo palette, “PAGE SIX” is a light pink shade and “MOST REQUESTED” is a darker burgundy both contain iridescent sparkles.  I swatched each color onto my arm and found them to be smooth in application as well as a complimentary color for my complexion.

I primed my eye lids before applying and chose my version of the Smokey Eye look.  Used an elf Angled Couture Eyeshadow brush for “PAGE SIX” and the Blending Eye Brush for “MOST REQUESTED”

The bareMinerals Eyeshadow went on smoothly with no dusting or falling flakes

Product wore well throughout the day and looked just as fresh at 3:00 p.m. as it did when first applied at 7:00 am

I’m not sure if you’ve seen an Avon catalog lately and if not, here’s just a taste of what you’ve been missing.  As an Independent Sales Rep for Avon for over 15 years I’ve seen many changes all of them good.  Avon is a company that has been in business for 125 years and has changed with the times without sacrificing the quality of their products, however, it is no longer your grandmother’s Avon – check it out.

This morning on EyeOpenerTV there was a featured interview with Tim Gunn of Project Runway.  He is partnering with Walgreens in introducing “Night At The W”, an exclusive cosmetic event being held Thursday, 4:00 – 9:00 p.m. at the stores.  I was curious and wanted more information so after work I stopped at my local Walgreens in Middletown.  My favorite store associate, Anna Marie was busily working the department, which as usual was fully stocked and neatly organized.  The new displays provided an upscale look with a clean and inviting layout, there definitely will be a lot of activity at this “Get Ready For The Red Carpet” event on Thursday.

Of course I am always on the look out for those orange, clearance stickers and tonight I spied Sally Hansen Salon Effects and Nail Polish on sale.  I am really looking forward to Thursday night and along with my Walgreens Rewards card I think I will come out a winner.
