It is already the last day of July but I won’t let this month end without having a giveaway to my amazing readers. This is my simple way of showing my gratitude for the support you have given me for my first year of blogging. I know my blog’s birthday has already passed and I apologize for not being able to plan out early for this. Oh well… Better late than never. Haha! 😛
I prepared two sets of giveaway items (Set A and Set B) for all of you in which I will be choosing a lucky winner for each set.
Product Description (taken from the Avon website):
Vivid, luminous stay-true color feels so luscious on lips, you may never switch. Moisturizing and conditioning formula with Shea Butter, Artic Berry and Vitamin E for an exquisite soft, supple feel. SPF15
If you keep a lot of lipstick tubes, it will be helpful if you can see the actual shade of the lipstick without having to remove its cover, just like those of Avon Ultra Color Lipsticks. 😀
I like that this lipstick is very pigmented that one swipe could already give you a rich, colorful swatch. Also, this has SPF15. You get a nice lip color and, at the same time, your lips are protected from the sun. The best thing about this product is that I didn’t get chapped lips even if I did not use a lip balm. However, this is not long-wearing so there is a need to reapply particularly after eating or drinking.
There are instances when I have to use a makeup product for several times before I get to like it. It is not always that I get amazing results at first use. There are times when I just put the product aside and get back to it after a few days to try it on again. But with the Avon Ideal Luminous Pressed Powder in Natural, it is love at an instant! 😀
I submitted an entry for the 7-Day Challenge of the January-February 2014 BDJ Box: Change It Up! There were two product options for the said challenge depending on the product included in the box. Some of the boxes have the Avon Face Pearls while some have the Avon CC Cream. Since my box includes the Avon Face Pearls, I made a blog post about it and submitted it as an entry.
Luckily, I was picked as one of the winners. Yey! I got the Avon Makeup Gift Pack. 😀
Looking for a natural-looking blush and highlighter in one product? The Avon Face Pearls can get you covered. I actually got to try this because it is included my January-February BDJ Box: Change It Up!
How to Use:
This product can be used in two ways (as indicated in the box of the product):
I prefer to use this on my cheeks instead of using it for the whole face. I think it is more appropriate to use this as a blusher particularly for a day makeup. Using it for the whole face might be more suited for a night makeup especially if you are going to attend special events or parties.
For a blush, it has an incredibly bulky packaging which makes it not travel-friendly and not “makeup kit”-friendly.
I have another unboxing post for today which is for my September BDJ Box: Luminescent Beauty. 😀 This is my second time to share with you my unboxing post. The first time is for my BDJ Box Elite: Girls Night Out.
Before I begin the unboxing post, I would like to share first what happened with my box. It has been a series of waiting moments for three months. Yup, that long… Why?
First, it was July when I paid for the August BDJ Box. August came and I was already waiting for my box to arrive. Apparently, the BDJ Box system had a technical glitch at that time and I did not actually make it to the cut-off for the August BDJ Box. I was informed that I have already been moved to the batch who will be receiving the September BDJ Box. The BDJ Box team just promised to add another item in my box (a lipstick) to make up for what happened. Again, I have to wait.
Second, after their release of the September BDJ Box, more than a week has already passed and I haven’t received mine yet. It was really late. I already read a number of unboxing posts from other blogs for this box while I don’t exactly know when I am going to get my box. This time, the problem is with their partnered courier. I have no choice but to wait. I keep on informing two people (Joanna and Rona) from the BDJ Box team regarding the situation. Good thing that they keep on following up with their courier until my box arrived.
Third, when I finally got my box. the promised lipstick was not there. I informed Joanna and Rona regarding the situation and they again communicated with their courier. I have no choice but to, again, wait. After two weeks of waiting, Joanna personally delivered the lipstick at my house. Awww… It was really touching. 🙂 Thanks a lot Joanna! 😀 Thanks to you too, Rona! 😀
There… That’s the long journey of my September BDJ Box. Haha!
Moving on, let’s now unbox my box. 😀
I like how this box has been arranged along with the items inside. It seems like you are getting a present for no particular reason. It just makes you feel happy! 😀
See? The box is filled with different amazing products. 😀
