12 Days of Deals - Day 4:  Free Magix Prime Face Perfector Primer

12 Days of Deals – Day 4: Free Magix Prime Face Perfector Primer

Ooh ooh Day 4 is magic… you knowwwwww. Every time I hear Magix Prime or Magix Tint I sing that song in my head. However when I hear Magix Stick I sing Lil’ Kim and 50… I got the magic stick… haha. Anyyyyywaysss…. Day 4 is a free full size Magix Prime face primer with spa 20. Basically a little bit of magic in a bottle.

12 Days of Deals – Day 4: Free Magix Prime face primer with a $50 order using promo code PRIME at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger

Word of Alicia:  Magix Prime has been one of our best sellers for years.  It recently was re-packaged in this killer black and white packaging but its the same product everyone has loved.  Since its relaunch I’ve been kinda obsessed.  Over the summer I went on a little primer binge at Sephora and Ulta.  I got all the top seller from Benefit, Ulta, Urban Decay, Too Faced and Smashbox.  How many primers does one girl need!?  But honestly they make a HUGE difference especially if you have textured skin like I do, along with large pores, hot Nor Cal heat and I’m a face toucher.  A primer is a must have!  Even with all those primers Magix Prime has been my go to.  If you like Smashbox Photofinish or Benefit Porefessional then you’ll like Magix Prime.  PLUS its a third of the cost and has SPF 20 soooo… Even better you can get it for free with today’s 12 Days of Deals offer.  If I were building a $50 order to get this free my Magix Inspired order would be this:

Besides Magix Prime, also in our Magix line is the Magix Tint and Magix Wand.  The tint is a tinted moisturizer with a blurring face perfecting affect, the wand in a creamy multi-tasker you can use from everything as a concealer to foundation.  They’re buy one get one half off so paired with the Magix Tint you’ll get for free you’ll be set for a flawless face all season long.  Plus it photographs really well for those holiday card photos.  I’ve also added the All Eyes On Me Gift Set which would make an excellent gift, but also pairs perfectly with the Magix Line for your everyday makeup.  Lastly, I’m adding this A Box to finish off your face, or again to gift.  If you have a small gift exchange A Boxes make the BEST gift for this.  They’re only $10 for a $42 value and they can be wrapped up like a Christmas Tree!  I really like this one particularly with the travel fragrance of Live Out Loud.  A good box for year round use.

REMEMBER I’m here to be your personal shopper.  These orders not quite what you want but you want that free primer, let me help curate one that is!  You want to gift this to someone, I can expertly gift wrap it, include a free holiday card and get it to your recipient in time to glisten under the tree.  Just hit me up!  aliciahess1 @ gmail.com or DM on Instagram @wordofalicia or leave a comment on this post and I’ll reach out.

Avon Beauty Items Under $25!

Avon Beauty Items Under $25!

Word of Alicia:  Orders usually ship free at a $40 price point, so when the free ship at $25 comes around this is the best time to get makeup!  We’re so reasonably priced that you can get your basics for under $25 – like Love At First Lash Mascara ($12), Glimmersticks Eye/Lip/Brow Liners (3 for $10), foundation ($14-$25), my fave Nourishing Lipstick ($6.99)… however my order suggestion this time around to get the free ship at $25 is the Time To Shine Palette Collection.

Eye Palette #2:  Cool and Neutral

This is SUCH a nice set for only $25.  As someone who shops a lot of brands, high to low, the quality on this one stands out just as nice as those high end brands.  As someone who shops holiday sets at places like Ulta, Sephora, Macy’s, etc… this holiday set gives you so much between the 24 eye shades and the 4 face shades.  PLUS the packaging is to die for!  It’s not *too* holiday making this a great set to use year round.

12 Days of Deals – Day 2 FREE Triple Wick Candle in Mocha Merrymint or Pass The Rum Cake

It’s Day 2 of our 12 Days of Deals over at the eBoutique and this one is a GOOD ONE!  You can choose between Pass The Rum Cake or Mocha Merrymint triple wick candle for free with a $50 order.  These are 2 of the top candles I wanted from the holiday candle collection.

12 Days of Deals - Day 2: Free Triple Wick Candle of your choice

12 Days of Deals – Day 2: Free Triple Wick Candle of your choice

12 Days of Deals – Day 2:  Complimentary Candle and Free Shipping on orders $50+ with promo code RUM (for Pass The Rum Cake) or MOCHA (for Mocha Merrymint)

Word of Alicia:  If you haven’t tried our candles yet, now is the perfect time… I mean when is a free candle not a good time? They’re VERY comparable to Bath and Body Works and the new holiday scents are 2/$25 which is a far better deal.  The holiday lineup includes Mocha Merrymint, Pass The Rum Cake, The Perfect Pine, Cinnamon Spice and All Things Nice, and A Very Berry Holiday.  This Day 2 Promo is a $20 value so if I were building a $50 order to get the free candle here’s what I’d choose.  Because there are 2 candle options I built 2 orders:

Order 1 for Pass The Rum Cake Candle:

Order Inspired by Pass The Rum Cake Candle at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger

Order Inspired by Pass The Rum Cake Candle at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger

Both these candles I want for myself so I built and order for me/yourself.  The holiday season requires a few must-haves, a red lip, holiday makeup and some festive glam jewelry to spice up the LBD.  My FAVORITE red lip this year is the Icon Avon Lipstick in Crimson Carnation, it’s the perfect holiday red in my favorite nourishing formula that helps battle dry lips.  With your red lip you’re going to need some holiday makeup and the Dream In Color Eye Palette is my TOP pick.  (check out my IG Highlights under Holiday to see what I mean!)  New arrivals just launched today including this new A Box which includes a bronze Glimmerstick eyeliner, a neutral cream blush, a Crave lipgloss and a purse size Live Out Loud fragrance.  These would complete your holiday beauty looks all for only $10!  Every season some fun festive jewelry is a must.  Its an inexpensive way to dress up your look for the holidays and still feel special.  I’m really digging this Red Deco set that’s currently buy one get one free!  You could swap in the cocktail ring if that’s more your jam.  This order is a little more than 50 at $60.99 but its worth $131.97!  $60 and you’re SET for getting ready this holiday season and you get a yummy candle to set the mood… done!

Order 2 for Merry Mochamint Candle:

Order Inspired by Mocha Merrymint Candle

Order Inspired by Mocha Merrymint Candle

Even though these candles would make excellent gifts esp as a hostess gift, teacher gift, girlfriend gift, etc… I want it for myself.  Also on my want list is this lounge set and smoking slippers so this order is again me getting something for me.  However, this would also make a great gift because The Here To Slay Lounge Set is good year round and can be worn casually too.  Paired with the Slay Smoking Slipper and the new A Box and the candle and you have yourself a gift that “slays”… see what I did there haha.  Either way get it for yourself or get it for someone else and get the free candle because this order comes in at $59.98 but valued at $111.97!  

REMEMBER I’m here to be your personal shopper.  These orders not quite what you want but you want that free candle, let me help curate one that is!  You want to gift this to someone, I can expertly gift wrap it, include a free holiday card and get it to your recipient in time to glisten under the tree.  Just hit me up!  aliciahess1 @ gmail.com or DM on Instagram @wordofalicia or leave a comment on this post and I’ll reach out.

Haiku Inspired Order Idea

Haiku Inspired Order Idea

“Find your Zen with the Haiku Collection.  The calming and clean notes of Haiku Eau de Parfum bloom in harmony to create a fresh floral that evokes the serenity of a Japanese garden.”  To match this Japanese calming zen vibe I would build an order featuring trendy K Beauty, self-care staples, and some fun new beauty to excite.  Avon Glimmershadow in Jade (seen here) is a pale green shade that would be super fun for the holidays especially paired with the rest of the beauty in this order.  The A Box this campaign features a pretty pink lip shade that would wear really nice with Jade, in addition to a basic black liner and mascara and a fun exclusive choker necklace (seen here).  With our collaboration with The Face Shop I would add in some K Beauty and Skincare with the trendy cushion highlighter and Rice Water Foaming Face Wash (personal favorite and great value!).  To finish off the bundle I’d add in the matching Haiku Skin Softener (cross between a body lotion and a body cream) and a triple wick candle in Serenity (clearance price of only $9.99!).  For $53.97 you are getting $131.99 worth of product! I would definitely like to receive this haul on Christmas morning, I’ll tell you that!  Just put all these items together in a decorative box, tie up with a pretty ribbon, and you’re all set for gift giving.

Experience more holiday, let me be your personal shopper!

Experience more holiday, let me be your personal shopper!

If you like this idea, but would rather do a different candle or more K-Beauty items, modify it at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger but remember this Haiku offer is only good for today so act quick.  OR – let me be your personal shopper!  I can get this order together for your, wrap it expertly, and send to your recipient.  If you want to switch out some items, I can make some other suggestions, either way utilize me as your personal shopper, I’m free.  That’s free suggestions and order building, free gift wrapping, free holiday card to go along with it and you don’t have to deal with post office!    Just hit me up!  (aliciahess1 @ gmail.com) or DM me (wordofalicia on instagram) or leave a comment on this post and I’ll get back to you!

21 Days of Beauty at Ulta

21 Days of Beauty at Ulta

21 Days of Beauty at Ulta

One can not live on Avon alone.  Even though I could challenge that, but confessions of a product junkie, I shop around.  Usually I don’t pay much attention to the 21 Days of Beauty Event at Ulta but I’m going through a little Ulta obsession right now and there are some KILLER deals in this event.  Its half way over but some of the best deals are yet to come!

Ulta's 21 Days of Beauty

Ulta’s 21 Days of Beauty Daily Deals

Everyone blogs/IG’s about the Sephora VIB event but honestly I kinda like Ulta better.  I like more bang for my buck, having more options, and up until a yr ago Ulta was just closer and more convenient.  What I hated about Ulta was the checkout line, it is always so long and takes forever… BUT now they added buy online pick up in store and LIFE IS CHANGED.  I shopped the Beauty Event last weekend and here are a few tips I discovered.

My Ulta Birthday Haul

My Ulta Birthday Haul

Buy Online Pickup In Store:  This will depend on your location.  I did this and for the most part it was AMAZING.  I got my weekend deals without dealing with the weekend crowd.  HOWEVER I did not get the matte eye pallet I ordered.  For the daily deals they got a memo that they are not allowed to pull the online orders until an hr after the store is open so customers have a chance to shop the items first.   So if a location doesn’t have the stock the online in-store pickup orders will suffer.  I did notice now online some of the daily deals tell you if they’re available for your store or not, but if its something you REALLY want then go to the store when they open for your best shot.

Only got 1 of the 2 palettes I ordered online picked up in store.

Only got 1 of the 2 palettes I ordered online picked up in store.

Utilize the calendar notifications:  This was the first time I used these and was a huge success for my scatterbrain.  I scanned all the deals late at night so you know I wasn’t going to remember which days have which products I want.  Since I was on my phone, I clicked the calendar notifications and all week I’ve been getting the alerts so I know to swing in and grab what I wanted.

Too Faced Neutrals Palette is as pretty as Bandit... er handsome as Bandit

Too Faced Neutrals Palette is as pretty as Bandit… er handsome as Bandit

Stack daily deals with freebies:  A lot of the daily deals have free gifts associated with them too!  I picked up this neural Too Faced Eye Palette and with a $35 Too Face purchase you get this Juicy 4 Piece set.  I’m stoked for more freebies!  (see all free gifts here) You can also use your Ulta coupon, but normal restrictions (like prestige brands) apply – $3.50 off of a $15 purchase coupon.

Got this primer for $3.50 and this Too Faced Gift Set for FREE!

Got this primer for $3.50 and this Too Faced Gift Set for FREE!

I’m not going to lie though, I have a problem.  One of the main reasons I signed up to be an Avon Rep was that I quit my 2nd job but still had 1 job income, so I needed to re-evaluate my spending.  Ulta was a big culprit of that.  I signed up to sell Avon for 2 reasons, make some extra money to fuel my habits and get some just-as-good-as-Ulta products for a MUCH better price.  Who knew it would lead to all these awesome opportunities, income and fun!  Which also means I may not spend as much at Ulta these days but I do go through my spirts and shop it like a mo fo.  Picking up my free birthday gift was what set off this spiral.  I of course strategically planned my purchase to include whatever free gift they had going on, this time it was the bath and body sample set.  It included such a great selection of products and brands.  I’m REALLY loving The Body Shop 3-1 Tea Tree Oil Cleanser.  This gift set doesn’t look to be available online anymore but in my store, they still had it available with a $35 bath and body purchase.

Found some new favorites at Ulta!

Found some new favorites at Ulta!

I also got the September Ulta Birthday Gift as my August gift because they ran out of August.  This NARS mini lipstick in Pour Toujours is the Ulta September Birthday Gift and it’s just ok.  The color is a nice true nude that’s not too foundation-y has the right amount of cool undertones, but the formula is heavy, I just don’t find it comfortable to wear.   And if my lips are dry they look even more dry with this formula.  I would of loved that Benefit Hoola Bronzer more…  Anyways… Ulta 21 Days of Beauty, it’s fun, it has good deals this year and tell me what you’re picking up so I don’t feel like the only product junkie out there.

Happy Labor Day! I hope you are spending today with a little sun and a little R&R. Labor Day marks my California-aniversary & Dorado-versary so it always has a little special place in my heart. East Coast meets West Coast which is usually my style… a little this and a little of that.  Like this outfit a little dressy a little casual. I had this on with heels earlier for casual Friday and switched to flip flops for GNI.  [ Tee – Avon; Skort – Express; Sunglasses/Jewelry – Avon; Flip Flops – Kate Spade; Lip – Avon Mattitude in Devoted]

Beach Sweaters for a Beach Trip

This LDW I was able to fit a lot in, we had the return of our girls craft night that’s been on summer break.  I caught the Penn State home opener shutout against Idaho, and ran into some old friends.  Picked out Halloween costumes and did some shopping for the house!  Took a day trip to Bodega Bay to put our toes in the ocean along the California coast. And today our plan is to hit some golf balls, meet the in-laws for sushi and shop online 😉

To take advantage of those LDW sales here’s what I have in my fantasy cart.  I’m also looking for some distracted girl friend jeans, the ones I liked from AE are all sold out so looking for a backup.  For my fall bag I want a camel tote bag but still on the search for that.  What do you have your eye on for fall?  Any good deals for LDW you found?

Word On Avon Mattitude Liquid Lipstick and Swatches

Word on Avon Mattitude Liquid Lipstick

Word on Avon Mattitude Liquid Lipstick

What’s your Mattitude?  Relentless, what’s yours?  Don’t know?  Well, I have a quiz for that!  Not only did Avon FINALLY released new matte liquid lipsticks with catchy verb names, they also have a fun quiz you can take to determine what shade fits you and your attitude!  The soft release of these new Mattitude Liquid Lipsticks has been active over at the eBoutique but the grand official release happens tomorrow (Tuesday 8/20).  They’ll be launching at an intro price of only $8.99 (reg $12) so let’s take a look and see if they’re worth it…

What's Your Mattitude!?

What’s Your Mattitude!?

Word on Avon Mattitude Liquid Lipsticks:  Zero gravity. Infinite color. Meet Mattitude, our soft matte liquid lip that comfortably coats your pout with a weightless wash of high-impact, super-saturated color. Instantly command attention when rocking any of the 8 long-lasting shades that leave a velvety soft finish and a powerful impression. .14 fl. oz.

Mattitude Shades

Mattitude Shades

BENEFITS:  Featherlight, non-drying formula that lasts for hours • Micronized pigments release rich, vivid color on impact • Poppy seed oil and vitamin E nourish and smooth lips  • Paraben-, sulfate- and phthalate-free

Avon Mattitude Applicator

Avon Mattitude Applicator

TO USE:  Smooth over lips with the doe foot. Show off your Mattitude with or without lip liner.

Word on These Mattitude Liquid Lipsticks:  LOVE 'EM!

Word on These Mattitude Liquid Lipsticks: LOVE ‘EM!

Word of Alicia:  Liquid lipsticks have been on the scene for a minute, proving they’re not just a trending item but one here to stay.  People love them for the long wear and color payoff but hate them for making them look like they have perma-chapped lips.  Which is why they were really popular among the young crowd, a crowd without aging, wrinkled, dry and/or cracked lips.  I’ve pretty much not been a fan of liquid lipsticks for that exact reason, my lips are always dry and liquid lipsticks made them look thin and gross, so with this launch I was weary.  I got my hands on 3 shades, a neutral, a bold and a classic red, pretty much one to represent each of the major lip options.  All 3 applied really smoothly both thanks to the formula and the doe foot applicator that has a little well to help get just the right amount of product.  All 3 wore really well and were very comfortable and did not dry out my lips even more nor did they make them look miserable.  I was so pleased with the formula and application that I will be picking up the rest of the shades.

Avon Mattitude in Resolute

Avon Mattitude in Resolute

I am Resolute.

I am Resolute.

Word on Resolute:  This one dried a little dark on me but still definitely a neutral.  I really liked this one paired with the Rosegold Glimmershadow Liquid Eyeshadow for an everyday look (see what I mean here).

Avon Mattitude in Resolute

Avon Mattitude in Relentless

I am Relentless.

I am Relentless.

Word on Relentless:  If you get one shade probably should be this one.  Think about the occasions you tend to go for a big bad lip, holidays, special occasions, date nights.  All of those a classic red lip is a classic choice for.

Avon Mattitude in Driven

Avon Mattitude in Driven

I am Driven.

I am Driven.

Word on Driven:  My favorite shade of the collection!  Purples wear really well on me and for a bold lip they go with a lot of eye looks and outfit looks.  I’ll be wearing this on my birthday I’m sure of it!

Mattitude has some attitude!

Mattitude has some attitude!

So the final word is these are worth it.  Take the fun What’s Your Mattitude quiz and see what shade they match you up with and comment/share what you got and maybe you’ll get a prize as part of birthday week treats!  You can also enter to win ALL THE SHADES here on the eBoutique!  And remember all August long use promo code SUMMER50 for a free gift with a $50 order!
