Wear and Share Wednesday: Mother’s Day

Wear and Share Wednesday:  Mother's Day

Wear and Share Wednesday: Mother’s Day

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.

Alicia’s Picks:

Word Yo!

Word Yo!

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.

Limited Edition Beauty for Mother's Day

Limited Edition Beauty for Mother’s Day

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.

Heather’s Picks:

Heather from Hoplessly Heather

“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!

Brilliantly long-wearing shades combine the perfect mix of pearl and glitter for the look of incredibly lustrous eyes.

BENEFITS
• Buildable coverage can be layered for intense impact or blended out for a delicate effect
• Water resistant
• No crease
• No smudge
• No transfer
• Stay-all-day wear
• Minimal fallout
• Paraben-, Sulfate-, Phthalate-free

TO USE

Available in 8 shades!

Word of Alicia:  If you loved the mark. liquid shadows of yesteryear (mark. all time eye, see here) then you’ll love these!  Like me, I loved those mark ones especially in the summer for an eye that’s not overdone.  The formula is better, no creasing and stays all day, double the size and they’re glittery!  These aren’t quite on the same level as the Stila ones but those are $22 a pop and these are $5.99, so you do the math.  I picked up 4 shades, Rose Gold, Fool’s Gold, Jade and Peach Sapphire, all 4 I’m loving.  So much that I ordered two more shades!

How I’m Wearing the Glimmershadows:  After playing around with these new releases, I found my favorite way to apply them.  Because these are such a strong formula, I don’t need an eye primer, I start with using the doe foot applicator straight on the lid, all over, staying below the crease and running under my lower lash line as well.  I let those set, and curl my lashes with an eyelash curler.  Then, using a fluffy eyeshadow brush, I run a taupe shade in my crease and outer v (as you would a transition shade).  I then use a white eyeshadow on my inner corner and brow bone to brighten the eye.  Finish it of with my go-to cat eye liner, and a coat of black mascara.  I’ve literally done this with each of the 4 shades and it slay’s all day!  They look put together, and make my eyes pop!

In like a  lion, out like a lamb.  The “old Pennsylvanian saw” holds true this year so far.  With the windy, rainy, moody blue days we’ve had, I’m also feeling that vibe.  I’ve been gravitating towards the blues lately, which seem to be perfect for end of winter.

When looking for a black leather jacket for the Justin Timberlake Concert (see here) I found this cool navy one instead, which got me super excited and fit my moody blue vibes.  Layered with a prairie blouse and some fresh-again flares I have a look that works well for March as we transition to that lamb like weather.

Hello March! Hello daylight, florals, warming temps and fresh spring air! Its like a switch went off and I have all the spring feels come March 1st. I busted out all my florals, even if I am wearing them with boots and tights. Either way, today’s lip of the week is a pretty neutral that looks great with all the florals, Avon True Color Nourishing Lipstick in Toasted Chestnut.

Roasted Chestnut Swatch

Roasted Chestnut Swatch

Word on Roasted Chestnut:  This is one of the newly released shades in the line that I picked up during the sale last campaign.  I was expecting this to be a darker brown shade but its actually a very wearable deeper nude.  It’s more flattering than a “foundation” nude color and goes with pretty much any color you’re wearing and will work year round.  Works especially well with spring florals.  😉

25 Uses For Avon True Color Dazzle Drops

Nothing gives you more bang for your buck than a good multi-tasking product.  One of my biggest multi-takers are my Avon True Color Dazzle Drops ($14).  This gem of a product is not one I’ve really “highlighted” before (see what I did there) but it’s currently FREE with your $50 purchase at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger so I thought I’d share why this guy is such a find with 25 uses for the Avon True Color Dazzle Drops.

Avon True Color Dazzle Drops Swatch (Full Sun)

Avon True Color Dazzle Drops Swatch (Full Sun)

Word on Avon True Color Dazzle Drops ($14):  Get your glow on…and take it to the max! Whether it’s a strong streak of sun-kissed shimmer or a deep bronze glow, your customized radiant look will dazzle as much as you dare. 5 fl. oz.  BENEFITS  • Provides a luminous, light-reflecting, pearl, dewy finish  • Adds a touch of silky moisture

25 Uses for Avon True Color Dazzle Drops

 

1. As a face highlighter: Use on cheekbones, under brow, tip of nose, cupids bow, all the places you’d highlight

2. Brighten Complexion: For a subtle glow, mix 1-2 drops with your face moisturizer

3. Glowing Base: For a luminous glow, mix 2-3 drops with your foundation

4. Accent Collarbone: Use on your collarbones, tips of shoulders, to accent your decolletage

5. Body Glow: Get an allover glow by mixing 3-4 drops with your body lotion

6. Longer Legs: Swipe Dazzle Drops down the front of your shins for the appearance of longer legs

7. Under Eye Brightener: Mix in with your under eye concealer to brighten up your under eye area

8. Look More Awake: Apply dazzle drops at the inner corner of your inner eye to appear bright eyed and bushy tailed

9. Fuller Lips: Using your finger tip, apply to your cupids bow and in the center of your bottom lip (with or without lip color)

10. DIY Shimmer Lipstick: Mix with your favorite lipstick to create a luminous finish

11. Golden Goddess: Mix Dazzle Drops with a liquid bronzer for that golden goddess look, apply where the sun would naturally hit or on the body

12. Easy Eye Shadow: Swipe Dazzle Drops all over the eye lid for a quick and easy glimmering eye look

13. Gleaming Primer: Using Dazzle Drops as your lid base, it creates a primer with gleam before applying eye shadows

14. Blushing Glow: Mix Dazzle Drops with your cream blush for a blushing glow, I like the Avon True Color Be Blushed Cheek Color

15. Define Brows: Use Dazzle Drops under your brow and right on top of the tail end of your brow to help define, preferably after using Avon Glimmersticks Brow Definer

16. Make Matte Look Less Flat: When wearing matte makeup, highlight with dazzle drops to add some light reflection for a more dimensional look

17. Make Your Highlight Pop: To achieve maximum highlight impact, layer your highlighters, use Dazzle Drops first then apply a powder highlight on top, like Avon True Color Moonlit Highlighting Powder

18. Beach Makeup: When you need a little beach glow, use Dazzle Drops on eye and cheeks along with waterproof mascara for easy beach makeup

19. DIY Shimmer Shadows: Combine dazzle drops with your favorite eye shadow to create a creamy shimmery eye look, apply with a dense brush like a concealer brush

20. Shimmery Eyeliner: Using and clean eyeliner brush, use Dazzle Drops as a glistening eyeliner, looks great with a smokey eye

21.  Aging Skin Looks Younger:  Because Dazzle Drops are a liquid you can use them on aging skin and instead of settling in line and wrinkles like a powder would, this actually illuminates and brings back that youthful glow

22.  Fake A Tan:  Build a body bronzer with some powdered bronzer, body lotion and Dazzle Drops

23.  Party Part:  For an easy party hairstyle, create a deep part and slick back into a sleek pony tail, apply Dazzle Drops down that part for a sparkling effect

24.  Coachella Brows:   Music festivals and party scenes sometime require an out-of-the-box makeup look, take a twist on glitter brows and run Dazzle Drops through your brows with a clean spoolie 

25.  Hair Shine That’s So EXTRA:  Add 1 drop of Dazzle Drops per 1 pump of the Avon Advance Techniques Daily Shine Dry Ends Serum, mix together and apply to dry hair to smooth and shine on a whole other level (another under-rated multi-tasking Avon product)

Word On Avon True Color Lip Glow Lip Gloss

Today’s Lip of the Week is lots of lips!  Avon has a new product release, its newest lip gloss, Lip Glow!  It comes in 21 shades, some similar to Avon’s most popular Glazewear shades, some shades completley brand new.  I picked out 5 shades to try and I’ve been wearing them non-stop.

Avon True Color Lip Glow Lip Gloss

Avon True Color Lip Glow Lip Gloss

Word on Lip Glow:  Glow is the new gloss. Avon True Color Lip Glow Lip Gloss has more shine, more moisturization, more color* and zero stickiness. It’s formulated with chia seed and rose hip oils to help nourish and moisturize for soft, supple lips. .27 fl. oz.

BENEFITS

• Highly-saturated shades
• Long-lasting shine
• Comfortable, creamy feel
• Paraben-free

TO USE

Smooth onto lips.

Up close and personal

Up close and personal

Word of Alicia:  Overall I highly enjoy the formula.  It is moisturizing and not sticky, as promised.  It feels luxe and full not slimy or slippery.  You can really tell its a lip oil full of benefits.  As far as color options, I think there’s somethign for everyone for every occasion.  In the below pictures you can tell it was a windy day while taking these pics, my hair DID NOT STICK to my lip glow, that alone should be a reason to give it a go haha.

Avon True Color Lip Glow in Lit

Avon True Color Lip Glow in Lit

LIT:  The only creme (opaque) color in my collection.  Color payoff is really strong and leaves behind a nice lip stain as it wears off.  If you are a liquid lipstick fan this would be a good option for you.

Avon True Color Lip Glow in Estrella

Avon True Color Lip Glow in Estrella

ESTRELLA:  This is probably my favorite from the bunch.  Its just such a flattering shade on me that can be worn year round for any occasion.  For being a shimmer shade (sheer) it has a good color payoff and is extremely similar to my favorite Avon True Color Lip Balm in Plum Passion.

Avon True Color Lip Glow in Lighthouse

Avon True Color Lip Glow in Lighthouse

LIGHTHOUSE:  This shade is a replacement for Glazewear Mocha Latte.  I picked this because a fellow rep, Lisa Scola, is always spreading her love for Mocha Latte Glazewear, which also is one of our biggest sellers.  I definitely was not disappointed by this neutral.  Just an easy to wear brown towned sheer.

Avon True Color Lip Glow in Aura

Avon True Color Lip Glow in Aura

AURA:  This is another shimmer (sheer) shade with a pink tone, which, as an everyday shade, I think is perfect.  I’ve been wearing this a lot lately just because it goes with every makeup look.  Simple, easy and comfortable.  This is a safe shade if you want to try the Lip Glows but not sure what color to pick.

Avon True Color Lip Glow in Luna

Avon True Color Lip Glow in Luna

LUNA:  Luna is a sleep shade, a surprising stunner that’s super unique.  It’s also unexpectedly selling out.  I picked this one because I wanted to test it out see if it would be a good replacement for a shade my sister is constantly hunting for.   This one wears kind of like a lilac milkshake nude.  It’s also one that works really well layerd over other shades, lipstick or even over a little concealer for a more bolder nude lip.  It almost looks grey toned in these pics, but its a light purple and a shimmer (sheer) formula.

I really like these Lip Glows, super easy to wear.  For years I’ve been pretty exclusive to lipstick and balm so getting back in the lip gloss game is a fun change.  Even better, these are only $5.99 at intro price at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger  That price is a steal considering lip oils from other brands are easily in the $15 to $25 range.  Plus today only, there’s a promo code for FREE SHIPPING on $25 a perfect time to pick up some makeup items like these Lip Glows.  Use promo code HELLOSUMMER at my eBoutique.

Lip Of The Week: mark. Pout Vinyl Lip Paint in Cozy

If November was a lip shade name, Cozy would be it!  (Or Thankful)  But Cozy is my lip of the week, so cozy it is!  These liquid lipsticks from mark. are a fabulous formula (see review here) so I decided to pick up another shade, Cozy.  This light pink shade is a really easy neutral shade.  I see this looking killer with a warm smokey eye for Thanksgiving!

I’ve been wearing this mark. Pout Vinyl Lip Paint in Cozy all week… minus Halloween where my lip of the day was Vamp for obvious reasons.  I really enjoy these vinyl shades, I love how saturated they are.  Extremely long wearing and comfortable.  Cozy, the light pink shade, is no exception.
