Avon Calling...........

Now I have to say I have never really bought many Avon products in the past, the odd thing here and there when something has caught my eye, if the book has dropped through the door. But I have to say, there has been more and more about Avon products in the beauty press and magazines, and some of the products caught my eye.

Firstly was the Anew skincare range, this has been widely talked about and the eye cream was even featured in, Avon is massive in America and this eye cream was polled one of the I thought I would have to give it a try.........

It comes in two parts a cream for your under eye area to smooth out fine lines, and a gel for your upper eye /brow bone to create a tightening and lifting effect! ( I could do with that!)

I have only been using this for a couple of days, so cant say anything review wise yet, but the gel part of the pot which you apply to the upper eyelid/brow bone does feel really refreshing and feels like the skin tightens after application, so we will see! The under eye part of the cream is nice I wouldn't say any different from my Clinique all about eyes, but I'm going o use the Avon one for the next two weeks and monitor the results!

Also from the Anew range I picked up one of there "Lifting Eye shadows" in the shade Moonlight

This is a really unusual colour a light lilac with shimmery pink undertones, perfectly on trend for this summers pastel shades, it's a really lovely colour, I'm not sure about the lifting bit! cant really see any eyeshadow doing that!!!

This shadow is a cream application that sets to a powder its really easy to apply, and I would say is better applied to the upper eye area as a highlighter. I tried and tried to get a good picture of this swatched on my hand but they just all came out rubbish!! having a nightmare with my camera at the minute I want to include swatches of everything I review..:(

Anyway So far so good with both of these products and I will keep you posted with a follow up review of the eye cream in a couple of weeks.

So what do you guys think of Avon? Any buys I should know about?......

P.S I know I said I was on a makeup ban but I did order this stuff over 3 weeks a go so that doesn't really count........does it???......:)
