Every Oily Girl Needs This👀

If you have oily/combo skin, sometimes, it feels like the world of oil is out to get you! Add this one simple step to your routine to stay oil-free throughout the day.

The Perfect Solution for Oily Skin:

I finally found the missing piece to my skincare regimen! Normally, I’d get oily after 2 hours! Earlier this year I found a mattifying moisturizer that helped balance my pH levels and the oil would stay at bay for about 6-7 hours. I heard about toners but never really used them so I decided to give it a shot. About two weeks ago, I purchased the Anew Clean Revitalizing Toner and it is a godsend! I can literally last a whole day and more without looking like I’ve been eating pizza all day!

 

This should definitely be a staple product for anyone who noticeable pores, oily skin, wears a lot of makeup or looking to refresh their skin!

Avon Lip Gloss Haul

Hi, my name is Natalie and I have a problem. I’m beginning to realize that. You see the picture above? Yea, that’s not part of a collection acquired over time. That was all purchased at the click of a button, probably 30 seconds between each click. My mom mentioned that she was looking for peach lipsticks and it reminded me that I needed to prepare for spring.

 

To be clear, I’m more of a lip gloss girl than lipstick. I have my few fave lippies but I really LOVE lip gloss 🙂 It’s an old habit that I just can’t shake. I remember the old school lip glosses from the ’90s with the glass tube and roller ball (ugh, I’m showing my age). Yes, I’m that girl — the girl that had every flavor and my favorite one — orange!!!

For the most part, I really feel like I can wear any of these glosses any day of the week. So I’m just throwing them all in my purse and when my lips get dry, I’ll just pull out one from my bag like Barney and apply 🙂

With the average “good” lip gloss costing anywhere between $20-24, you are in for a real surprise when you see what’s below! I’ve outlined each product but scroll down for the actual swatches. Yea, I swatched lip glosses. I couldn’t help myself 🙂

I’ll be reviewing each product from left to right. The prices on the right are current sales prices and subject to change. One thing I really love about this company is that the deals come around so often and even without the deal, it’s still reasonably priced. Hey! I’m a woman on a budget 🙂

Avon True Color Nourishing Lipstick in Mellow Melon – $5.99

img_04901
Avon True Color Nourishing Lipstick in Mellow Melon

In Campaign 5, 2017, Avon announced that it decided to upgrade the formulas on it’s current lipsticks and even changed the packaging to include “True Color.” True Color Technology is what Avon promises, for those of us apprehensive online shoppers, “the product you see is the product you get.” The Avon True Color Nourishing Lipstick is actually a new addition to the makeup line and not an upgraded formula for an existing product. This lipstick is infused with jojoba oil, vitamin E, collagen and lanolin. Click here to see all 10 shades swatched. 

It is truly moisturizing and feels good on the lips. I didn’t feel as though it weighed my lips down and really didn’t notice it while applied. It’s very pigmented. It actually reminded me of one of my higher-end brands that I wear around spring of every year.  I couldn’t wear all of Avon’s lipsticks due to some ingredients that felt like wax. They actually had a burning sensation that I couldn’t stand. As soon as I applied the lipstick, I took it off. I didn’t want them to puff and swell. It didn’t happen but I couldn’t take the risk of walking around like a blowfish.

The only exceptions to this were the Perfectly Matte lipsticks and Ultra Color Indulgence lipstick (replaced with Ultra Hydration Lip Color). These two lipsticks didn’t cause any reaction and the color pay off is amazing! Even with the matte formula, my lips seemed super moisturized and I never had any of the embarrassing scenes of cracked/chapped lips.

Final judgement: a definite must-buy. I was skeptical of purchasing more than one shade due to the aforementioned possible allergic reaction but now that I see that it doesn’t exist; the lipstick is pigmented and feels so good — I’d be a fool not to buy more!

Avon Ultra Glazewear Lip Gloss – $5.99

In all fairness, I’m already a purchaser of the Ultra Glazewear Lip Glosses but this is the first time that I’ve ever purchased the two shades above (Citrus Shine and Pale Peach). Prior to this purchase, I had about 4 shades of the Glazewear lip glosses (Iced Pink, Mocha Latte, Rich Brown, and Perfect Nude). I just recently acquired the Clear and Creamy Nude which should  be arriving in a couple of days (you’re beginning to see I have a problem, aren’t you?).

At any rate, I like the fact that this lip gloss is very lightweight. To put it simply, it is a very “clean” lip gloss. By clean, I mean that it isn’t heavy, it doesn’t stick and it’s not runny. You hardly notice that you are wearing any at all. The coverage is sheer but you can definitely tell that you’re wearing lip color. When I apply the Mocha Latte or Rich Brown, people ask what “lipstick” am I wearing (yes, it’s sheer coverage but noticeable).

Final judgement: I love this lip gloss. I feel it’s very appropriate for the workplace by adding a hint of femininity without being too aggressive/arrogant. It’s a nice, subtle touch. Perfect for no makeup days and very “natural” days.

Avon True Color Glossy Tube Lip Gloss – $4.99

In comparison to the Ultra Glazewear Lip Gloss (listed above), I’d have to say this is “heavy duty.” The lip gloss seems slightly more heavy as it delivers more gloss and pigmentation. According to Avon, it’s infused with vitamins. Prior to today, I owned one shade of this lip gloss in a very pigmented pastel pink. It smelled like cotton candy 🙂

The Glossy Tube really does deliver when it says shine. I feel as though you can skate on this lip gloss. It’s not oily and doesn’t even contain oil. This lipstick puts me back in the mindset of “my lip gloss is popping.” This is truly a gloss for those that want to be seen and noticed, from a distance.

Final judgment: this is my absolute fave! Now remember, I am that girl that loves the roller ball lip gloss. What’s the point of wearing makeup if no one can notice it? Yep! That’s me! This lip gloss differently grabs attention and though it’s sheer coverage, it’s easily build-able.

mark. Glow Baby Glow Hook Up Lip Gloss – 2/$15 (other wise, $10 each)

The two things that I noticed about these lip glosses are the smell and the ability to “hook-up.” The lip glosses have a very soft candy-like scent. It’s not overpowering but noticeable. I love the idea of hook-ups as you can hook-up any mark. product and carry two products versus one. For example, you can attach your eyeliner to a lip gloss and have one solid piece versus fiddling through your purse for both products.

The consistency reminds me of the Glossy Tube Lip Gloss. Major differences would be the shades available, the applicator (tube vs doe foot applicator) and mark. seems to have more glitter/sparkly but other than that, it really comes down to a matter of personal preference. I can see myself using either.

Avon For the Love of Makeup Artist Palette: Preview, Review and Photos

Avon True Color For the Love of Makeup Artist Palette Preview, Review, and Photos. Now available online, get yours today at http://avon4.me/2cpdiWu.

Avon True Color For the Love of Makeup Artist Palette does not officially hit the brochures until Campaign 23, 2016; however, I was able to get my hands on this palette ahead of time and wanted to share my results with you — hence, the “preview” description. Though it doesn’t pop up in brochures for another 2-4 weeks, depending on where you’re located, it is exclusively available online right now! In the video above, I show the colors upfront. For today’s fall inspired look, I decided to use the new For the Love of Makeup Artist Palette (pics shown below).

This palette includes:

• 30 Eyeshadows (18 shimmer/metallic and 12 matte)

• 5 Lip Glosses

• 3 Powder Blushes

• 2 Powder Highlighters

• 1 Powder Contour

• 1 Dual-Ended Eye Applicator

• 1 Lip Applicator

• 1 Cheek Applicator

• Palette measures 4 3/4″ L x 7 1/2″ W x 3/4″ H

Overall: I’m very pleased with this palette. It’s very affordable — 41 products for $19.99. The creamy metallic eyeshadows are very smooth and easy to blend. The color payoff is good in relation to the price. My only concern is the light shade of contour. For women with darker complexions, this may not be one of the products that you use but still, a great product for the price.
