12 Days of Deals – Day 10:  FREE Anew Vitamin C Serum a $44 value with promo code VITAMINC

Word of Alicia:  The Vitamin C Serum is one of my must have’s especially now that its been reformulated!  If you haven’t tried it with its new silky, quick absorbing formula then what a better way than to try it for FREE! Vit C really helps with sun and age spots and the winter is the BEST time to use it and help repair that damage.  Pair it with a super hydrating moisturizer as with all vitamin c products they contain alcohol so you actually absorb the vitamin c.  I really like it paired with the Anew Ultimate Supreme Advanced Performance Creme.  If I were to build a $50 order to get this serum for free this is the order I’d build:

My absolute favorite gift bundle is this Let It Glow Skincare Blockbuster for $49.  Not only does it have a $154 value but it contains some of my absolute favorites that I’ve talked about so many times it also has the perfect red lip matte lipstick for the holidays and beyond.  The Avon Mattitude Lipstick in Persistent is a deeper red that looks magical with simple eye makeup for the holidays.  And can we talk about that glitter bag!?  Its the icing on the cake!  Because we need to add another dollar to hit that $50 mark I suggest my fav senses in Starfruit & Coconut that’s now on clearance for $2.99 (see here).

You could either gift the Let It Glow Skincare Bundle, break it up and use as individual gifts and keep the free Vitamin C or keep it all!  Either way this order is worth $208 and you’d get it for $51.99…. A 1/4th the cost!!!!  I mean why would you not!?  You can shop this online at

12 Days of Deals – Day 4: FREE Magix Prime

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

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 @ 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.

Time To Shine Palette Collection Only $25 * Cheers To You Shower Gels $7 ea.

Last year we had a similar version (see here) that Oprah actually mentioned as one of her top gifts to give and get.  This year it’s just as good of a gift and even better packaging and color options!

This would make a great gift for any beauty lover, anyone who shops as said stores, and anyone who loves *living their best life*.  You can shop the Time to Shine Palette Collection online at be sure to use promo code HOLIDAY25 for free shipping.
