Word On The Incredible Eye Event

Today is taking a page from Skincare Sunday because we’re all about the eyes with our incredible eye event going on now!  Best way to get flawless makeup is with a good skincare routine.  Took a little informal poll on the facebook and majority of my peeps prefer eyes over lips, so if you’re not using an eyecream then you’re already a step behind.  No matter your age, skin type, or tone an eye cream is necessary to battle those nights without enough sleep, environmental elements and aging.  Right now during the Incredile Eye Event going on at my eBoutique all eye creams are $14.99!  Which is an excellent price for a really good eye cream, you’re not going to find that price at the department store, and these work just as well or better than those same creams.

Anew Clinical Eye Lift Pro

Anew Clinical Eye Lift Pro

Biggest conversation is the Avon Anew Clinical Eye Lift Pro eye cream is $14.99.  This guy features two products in one, a gel for the upper eye lid to lift and a cream for the under eye and crows feet to moisturize.  This cream is the best selling eye cream, and getting it at $14.99 is almost unheard of.

Duo Eye System: Gel and Cream

Duo Eye System: Gel and Cream

Another thing to note about this eye cream is it works for any age and skin type.  It doesn’t have a fragrance and works with sensitive eyes, or allergy eyes.  And it works.  That’s the biggest thing, right!?! So if you’re just dabbling in the world of skincare or have been in it for ages this is the one to get at the eye event price!

Packaging shows which goes where

Packaging shows which goes where

Not only is this eye cream a best seller, its also is in multiple publications (like my bible, Allure) and blogger reviews.  Word of Alicia is, its pretty legit.  I’ve been using it during alergy season and its made all the difference.  Its actually something I rebuy.  I have a bunch of samples of this cream I’m mailing out so anyone interested leave a comment and I’ll reach out to you to get you one.

Only $14.99 for this Award Winning Product!

Only $14.99 for this Award Winning Product!

Just incase you already have a favorite eye cream they’re all on sale.  I’ve also used the Avon Anew Reversalist Eye Cream and I absolutely love the Anew Clinical Dark Circle Treatment, which I will be picking up a new one at this sale price.   Even better is you can get FREE SHIPPING on any size order if you include this Anew Clinical Eye Lift Pro in your order and use promo code EYELIFT  Even if you only purchse the 1 eye cream at $14.99 you’ll still get it shipped for free.  If there’s ever a time to try it, now is it!

Lip Of The Week: Avon True Color Glazewear Lip Gloss in Darling Pink

Lip Of The Week: Avon True Color Glazewear Lip Gloss in Darling Pink

Lip Of The Week: Avon True Color Glazewear Lip Gloss in Darling Pink

You know what I’ve been loving lately?  Lip Gloss!  “Taking it back to the old school, cuz I’m an old fool who’s so cool…”  (10 points if you can name that song)  …Anyways, Avon Glazewear has me loving lip gloss again.  I am just LOVING this formula.  It’s super comfortable to wear, not too sticky, moisturizing and great color pay off!  I’m wearing Avon True Color Glazewear in Darling Pink, which is just a perfect everyday lip color.  Especially perfect for spring.

Darling Pink is actually a cream shade, so its pretty opaque for a gloss.  In the sun shots you can see it has just a *touch* of shimmer that looks really stunning on.  I never would of bought this on my own, for no reason other than that I’m just “into lipsticks now.”  This Glazewear came as part of a set, the Spring Pink Delights Collection 7-Piece Set actually.  After getting a Glazewear in my Savana Beauty Set (see here) and this one I’m officially on the gloss train.  That’s why I love sets, you get to try something you normally wouldn’t of picked out and sometimes its a grand slam, like this time.  The whole set is actually a grand slam!

Spring Pink Delights Collection 7-Piece Set

Spring Pink Delights Collection 7-Piece Set

Valued at $93 this Spring Pink Delights Collection set is ONLY $34.99!  I got it because I wanted the makeup bag, being a little larger I knew it would be great for traveling to fit larger items like foundation, full size hair products, etc.  Additionally, I needed more Skin So Soft oil and the Soft and Sensual scent is my favorite.  So for the cost of the SSS oil and the bag, I got a full size perfume, polish, lipgloss, shower gel and lotion!  Lucky for me I was trying out three new products (perfume, polish and gloss) and all of which I’m now using on the daily and loving!  Haiku Kyoto Flower is another one I’m kicking myself for not getting before now!

If you haven’t figured it out, I love this set.  I think its an EXCELLENT value and I suggest trying a few new products.  I also think this would make a perfect Easter gift, basically everything you need to fill a basket outside of some candy.  I have a feeling this guy might sell out, so grab yours at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger  and maybe pick up a few more Glazewears at 2 for $10!

Let me just put the word out on this Savana Beauty value set.  It’s $20 for a $48 value, so there’s that but it actually comes with some pretty stunning FULL SIZE makeup that’s everything you need for your spring beauty update.  The matte eyeshadow quad looks intimidating but you can day or night this.  I wore shade 1 all over my lids with shade 2 in my crease, shade 3 on the center of my lid and shade 4 on the outer v, and I can’t tell you how many compliments I got.  It was actually rather shocking since its not really that far off from what I normally do but it was enough color to bring some new attention.  And Glazewear… why have I not given this a shot before!?  This is probably one of the better lip glosses I’ve ever used, comfortable, hydrating and great color!  I’m back on the gloss train like its 1999!

These shades are not only perfect to amp up your spring look a million different ways but they’d be great for St. Patrick’s Day too!  The nail polish in clover is more muted in person, a great dupe for Chanel Jade!  I just LOVED it and I had no desire to buy it before, now its definitely one of my favorite shades.  Additionally the makeup bag is too cute with the Savana Blooms signature print from the collection exclusive to Avon, but it is also JUST the right size and shape for your bag.  Not too big and long enough for your brushes.  I just can not express how impressed I am with this $20 set!  Get it while you still can as it is part of the limited edition collection (see here).

And if you just want to dip a toe in the Southern Belle beauty pool try this adorable set too, Coral Fever Lipstick Set.  Avon True Color Perfectly Matte Lipstick in Coral Fever is one of my favorite shades (see swatches and on here).  For $10 you get the full size lipstick and this cute little pouch perfect for stashing your lippies!  It would look really good with the above set if you were feeling a bold lip instead of gloss.  Both of these would make excellent Easter basket gifts.

Trending Tuesday: Lots To Love

Lots To Love

Lots To Love

If the world of alicia was the internet #lotstolove would totally be trending. Lots To Love is the title of the newest Avon flyer targeting Valentine’s Day. In the world of Alicia, I’m just OBSESSING over it. I just LOVE these images and have me inspired for not just Valentine’s Day, but for my January, February, awards season, and beyond!

 

Makeup Looks To Love:

Sultry and Stunning

Sultry and Stunning

First thing that has me smitten is the stunning beauty looks featured.  Super simple clean skin, simple eye, LOTS of lashes, red lips and silver nails.  This looks so sultry with the strapless look, really letting those stunning jewelry pieces take the stage, but just as easily works more casual.  I NEED to recreate this look.

Casual and Confident

Beauty Gifts To Love:

Darling Ring Dishes

Darling Ring Dishes

This year’s giftable collection is too cute to boot!  Between the darling ring trays, the fun graphic lip prints, and the mix match appeal, I’m smitten!  The ring trays would be super cute for a candy dish at my desk at work!  I love to theme out my life so a pair of Valentine’s Day PJ’s is kind of a must!

This Lots To Love flyer definitely has given me lots to love!  It’s funny how a retailer’s flyer/ad/campaign can really create a lot of inspiration.  I’ve definitely been letting my jewelry be the statement of my look and piling on the Big and Daring mascara!  You can shop the entire collection at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger and add on that Eye Love You A box to bring it full circle! For some more inspiration here’s the entire Lots To Love flyer for your eyes!

Buffalo Plaid, Feathers, and Red Lips

Only 6 days until Christmas, and another festive mani Monday down!  I’m feeling the festive spirit with finding a way to bring a little red, green and glam to my everyday.  Today’s festive is a buffalo plaid mixed mani, feather necklace and a classic red lip!

Julep and Jamberry

Julep and Jamberry

For my buffalo plaid mixed mani I started with Friday Flannel nail wrap from Jamberry on my ring.  I then used Julep polishes to do my black and gold nails.  Once it dried I drew the line down the side of my ring and middle with that same gold and then cleaned up around the nail.  This really matched a lot of my festive red and green outfits I’ve been wearing lately, like this feather and red lip look!

The mark. So Fly Necklace with its black feather, hematite metal and gemstone details is a really fun piece for the holidays.  I paired mine over this off the shoulder sweater (WHBM) and a black and white wool plaid skirt (Nordstroms).

NOTES
• Top Note: swinging medley of rose
• Middle Note: capucine florals
• Bottom Note: spicy nutmeg allure

Word Of Alicia:  I would call this scent clean and masculine, and I absolutely adore it!  It is something completely different than anything else in my fragrance wardrobe.  The first time I sampled it I was like eh… then I used it and really got to explore the notes and how they layer.  OBSESSED.  Plus it lasts all day,  and then some!  Much longer than most mark. fragrances.  This one smells way more expensive than $30 would suggest.  It also has a really good retro feel to fit the mod theme.

Word on mark. Mod Body Lotion:  This creamy, extra-rich companion lotion leaves skin feeling soft, silky and eau so MOD.  mark. MOD is a swinging medley of rose and capucine florals spiked with a spicy nutmeg allure. 6.7 fl. oz.

Word Of Alicia:  Let me just say that this is my new go-to pallet!  Besides having super cute packaging this pallet is the perfect size, portable and thin.  The pans are a really good size too, so a good amount of product with the 12 different shade options.  These shades are a really unique offering for holiday too… this is one you can use on the day to day and still get party looks for the season.  (check back for tomorrow’s look using it!).  I loved this pallet so much I made a swatch video of it so you can really see how wearable the shades are.  Very buildable as you can see during the swatches but also really long lasting.  If you liked the mark. On The Dot Pastels this will be a good replacement. After doing some pinning on all things mod I really saw how all these shades are quite retro and very much of the mod movement, but wear very modern.   100% satisfied.
