Jessica here, coming to you with a blast from the past. Let’s take a second to talk about Avon. Yes, Avon! I can’t be the only one that was absolutely obsessed with Avon growing up. My mom would bring home catalogs from her friends, and she always let me pick one or two things from the catalog to order. Inevitably, I always ordered makeup. In retrospect, it was also always something really bright and unlike any type of makeup I would wear today (like purple lipstick!)…But it always made me so happy, and it’s a memory I’ve carried with me.
In college, I still ordered Avon because it was affordable. Plus, at this point I had a list of favorites that I couldn’t live without. Not to mention I was a broke college kid and ‘affordable’ was a necessity.
And then I graduated, and I moved away from everything I knew. My hometown, my family and my Avon sales reps. At this point, I was entirely clueless that I could order Avon online without going through a catalog/individual sales rep, but let’s just skip over this fact because apparently I was living under a rock.
So fast forward to about a year ago, when Avon was so gracious to reach out to me about sending me a PR package. That one little package brought back all the warm and fuzzies, and rekindled my love of Avon! So as a result, today I’m sharing my 5 absolute, non-negotiable must have products from Avon. If you’re a beauty loving girl, who also likes a good bargain, this is the post for you!
Holy $hit you guys…this stuff is incredible. Prior to this, I was using Neulash. It worked just fine, but it’s so expensive. So I got this, tested it on my eyebrows and 2 weeks later my sparse brows were already looking fuller. So then I started using it on my lashes and I cannot even believe the difference in just 6 weeks. It’s so good that I already stocked up on a second tube to have when I run out, and BONUS: it’s currently ON SALE for only $39.99. If you are looking for fuller, longer lashes – this is the product! And just so you know, I have naturally gray blue eyes, and this product has had no effect on my eye color (I know that is something I was always worried about when using eyelash products).
Sure these may be 5 of their regular shades, but you all….they come in these old school, holiday packages that were giving me major nostalgia and I can’t even with the plaid and gold lipstick tube! And the leopard! I mean, these are so fun for the holiday season and would make some great stocking stuffers for your friends too!
This stuff has worked wonders on my skin and I know it’s going to be something I can’t live without this Winter when my skin is miserable, flaky and dry. I use it before I do any kind of self-tan or anytime my skin just needs a little pick me up, and I always get out of the shower with a little extra glow.
This is one of those products I used all through college, then separated and when reunited years later, it’s just as good as I remember. This stuff just melts away eye makeup like nothing I’ve ever used and I can’t get enough!
Just like the body polish, I use this anytime my facial skin needs a little pick me up and I can tell a difference right away after using it. It just gives my skin a natural glow/highlight effect. I love it..and I love the color!
Happy Tuesday loves!
