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.
For today, I will be sharing with you my unboxing post for the December Glamourbox: Secret Santa. 😀 This is actually my first beauty box subscription from Glamourbox.
First off, I would like to commend Glamourbox for making sure that the items inside are secured. When I got it out of the usual delivery plastic packaging, this box is intactly packed in another box. I am happy with that because they made sure that all the items are well-secured and won’t get damaged. 😀
