Mother’s Day is May 12th incase you were wondering. If you still need some ideas Wear and Share Wednesday has got you! Heather from Hopelessy Heather is back and ready to share with you a look at the Limted Edition Iconic Avon Collection. I let you in on the 1967 inspiration on this Limited Collection but there’s more to the Mother’s Day Shop.
Mother’s Day is all about appreciating the beauty in MOM. (and I’m going to use all caps there because my Mom always writes it out that way, as that’s now she was taught — I think during her shorthand days — google shorthand if you don’t know that that is). I always like beauty gifts for these kind of gift giving opportunities. They are personal, as you’re picking out something you think she would like, flatter her. They’re extremely useable and something Mom doesn’t really treat herself to all the time.
The Mother’s Day beauty selections are really wearable, practical and pretty. The packaging is extremely giftable, you could just tie them up in a bow and give! The actual item’s design are really pretty too, and they all mix and match to create a perfect little bundle/gift set.
I selected my top picks here and look how pretty they all are bundled together. The Iconic Avon Blooming Blush Palette is the star of the show. Substantial in size, weight, and product amount is worth far more then the $9.99 its going for. The formula is spot on as well. VERY wearable shades and who doesn’t want a healthy flush!? Here I’m wearing the pink shade and you can see how healthy it looks! (also wearing the peachy/coral shade in this post)
Bundled along side are a few lip products, the Iconic Avon Lipstick in Natural Shimmer, the Mom’s The Balm Lip Balm in Melon and the Iconic Avon Blooms & Kisses Lip Gloss. These three all stand on their own or paired together. The Iconic Avon Lipsticks are in those classic metal lipstick tubes that are so fancy and feel so luxe. In these pics I’m wearing the Blooms & Kisses Gloss in Lively Violet and let me tell you how pigmented and long lasting this little guy is… and at $4.99! Also shown, the Iconic Avon Pearly Earrings (see Heather’s picks below for more details!)
Finally, fragrance! Not only did Avon launch a pretty new spring scent, Flourish Honey Blossom, we also have some gift sets released for Mother’s Day. I JUST LOVE the gingham design, marrying perfectly with the other beauty products. Giftsets available in Velvet (shown here) and Haiku including a full size fragrance, body lotion and travel size mist.
“On Mother’s Day we show the mother figures in our lives how much we love and appreciate them – and Avon has released the perfect vintage inspired jewelry line that includes a heart brooch, pearly earrings, a dangling charms bracelet, a pearly ring and a pendant watch necklace. All the above are absolutely stunning in traditional gold settings and would make killer gifts for your wife, mom, grandma, sister, aunt or other mom you want to celebrate. Make it twice as nice by getting your favorite ladies matching pieces and present them at the same time.
I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the brooch, earrings and watch necklace. The brooch is hefty and features gorgeous scroll work with some sparkly bits sprinkled on top. Brooches make great additions to hats, coats, scarves, tops and even as hair decorations. The earrings show off two beautiful pearls in a leafy bed of gold that simply delights. The watch necklace features an incredibly long chain and a sturdy watch pendant – the chain could be wound around a wrist instead of worn around a neck or the pendant could be removed from the chain altogether to attach a clip assembly and tack it to a handbag, keychain or tons of other places!” – Heather
Heather styled these vintage inspired pieces perfectly with her vintage inspired look. Excuse me while I go grab a scarf to look as adorable as she does in her neck scarf. Classic pieces make excellent giftables… even as a gift for yourself!
