Avon Glimmersticks!*


Saturday, 12 September 2015


Avon. Evokes so many memories, my first perfume Natori, my first make up set Little Blossom and some glorious frilly satin PJs - well it was the 80s!

My mum was an Avon lady and I remember her surrounded by paper bags making up friends orders while I played with the mini lipstick testers. Avon, is one of those brands that is steeped in history and happy memories.

So when I was sent an Avon glimmerstick to review I was quite excited to see what the Avon offer was like today.

I'll be honest and say I am not a huge eyeshadow, eyeliner girl preferring a slick of mascara and perhaps a smudge of cream eyeshadow stick. However, the glimmerstick entitled 'Big and Daring' enticed me and the shade 'deep plum' I knew would be a pretty combination with green eyes.

Well, I was pleasantly surprised, it was such a smooth application and fluid product it applied like a dream. I started gently on my upper lash line and as I got braver applied on the water line for a more rocky look ( well, I was wearing a full on print jumpsuit - so figured why hold back?!)

I teamed with my Bronze Goddess Nudes Eyeshadow palette. Shades below.




A fab product for autumn and i will certainly be wearing again.

What are your memories of Avon? What are your favourite Avon products today?
