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

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!

When is Valentine’s Day this year?

When even is Valentine’s day!?  What day of the week is it on?  What am supposed to get this year… ugh!  No fear, word of alicia has it covered.  This year Valentine’s Day, February 14th, falls on a Tuesday… so that means Taco Tuesday and $5 movie Tuesday!  It’s a precious week night so maybe you make the taco’s at home for Netflix and chill.  But what about the gift?  I have a few ideas for you straight from our Valentine’s Day Boutique on everything on what to wear to what to gift:

Valentine's Day Boutique at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger

Valentine’s Day Boutique at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger

What to Wear:  Regardless if you have a date or not you can still wear something to theme out your day even if all you’re doing is going to work.  I personally lean toward red but pinks and purples are also festive!  I love the look above for sultry date night look, the red wrap dress with high low hem works perfectly with a black lace up bootie and statement necklace all from Avon.

I’m loving this girly purple look from mark. for Valentine’s day too!  It would be perfect for a day date, or for tacos!  Paired with fun flats and a mini bag makes if functional while still being romantic.  Also the kind of outfit you could wear to work just to theme out your day 🙂

What To Give This Valentine's Day?

What To Give This Valentine’s Day?

What To Gift:  Fragrance and jewelry are kind of the go-to gifts for Valentine’s Day for a reason.  They always fit and flatter.  Thing is, you don’t have to break the bank to get them either.  Regardless if you your gifting your kids, your friends, your valentine or even yourself, there are some killer items at my eBoutique.  For your kids, I love the jewelry sets in a heart shaped box for girls.  For your friends the mark. Love, mark. bath and body line is perfect, especially the little hand cream.  For your valentine, fragrance and fine jewelry!  I’m loving the Avon Sterling Silver Genuine Onyx ring!

Fragrance is always a little personal which also why it makes a great gift for yourself.  The nice thing about gifting it at Valentine’s Day is you can gift what you want your Valentine to smell like.  For women’s fragrance I love Avon Femme and the Ultra Sexy Line, like the new trio of body spray’s for $15.  Little Red Dress was just released and perfect for Valentine’s Day.  For men my husband loves Avon Luck and I have to say I do too!  It’s clean and casual so perfect for every day.

Mani Monday – Summer Pink and Black and White Striped Mixed Mani

Mani Monday:  Summer Pink and Black and White Striped Mixed Mani

Mani Monday: Summer Pink and Black and White Striped Mixed Mani

When I’m uninspired on what mani I want to do I usually lean towards pinks and reds.  Maybe it’s because of my pink undertones, but they always look legit.  In the summer I want a fun and bright mani so why no mix it up with pinks and black and white stripes!  So I did, and I love it!  The perfect summer mixed mani!

Mixed Mani With Jamberry and Avon

Mixed Mani With Jamberry and Avon

For my base I used Avon Ridge Filling Base coat on all 10 digits.  On my pinkie and middle I used Avon Nail Wear Pro in Viva Pink (last seen here) followed by Avon Gel Finish Top Coat.  For those black and white stripes on my ring and thumb I used Jamberry Black and White Stripe wrap and for the chevron pink accent on my pointer I used Jamberry Sorbet wrap.

For summer this mani makes me happy, actually I’d rock this year round.  For me doing my nails is my happy place.  The process is sort of mindless that allows me to do whatever I want on those 10 fingers of mine.  When I look down and see my happy new mani I feel happy and content even if it is just for a few seconds until the next fire pops up I have to put out.  I can escape all the yuck by just doing my nails, silly or not, it’s the small things in life like this that work for me!  You can shop this Avon Viva Pink at my estore and Jamberry here.

Peace Out!

Trending Tuesday: Color Of The Year #rosequartzandserenity

If the world of alicia was the internet the color of the year #rosequartzandserenity would be trending. Maybe it’s because they’re the perfect shades for spring, the dynamic duo has me all things pink and blue… especially blue since it is my favorite color!

Color Of The Year: Rose Quartz and Serenity

Color Of The Year: Rose Quartz and Serenity

Nailed It:  Lately my mani’s have been straight up color of the year.  Jamberry released a collection around the colors and I picked up Rose Quartz Getaway (see here) and Sculpted in Serenity as seen here. I wore Sculpted in Serenity first with the Steel Magnolia shade from the mark.  Nailed It Duo (here) and then later with Essie Fiji for the ultimate color of the year combo!

Bag It:  To add some serenity to my everyday I saw this Christian Siriano for Payless bag at a steal of a price and have been obsessed ever since!  Not only do I love the color obviously, the functionality of it is amazing… two full top zip pockets on each side PLUS 4 slip pockets AND a normal zip pocket.  And it fits so much! OBSESSED.

How are you working in the color of the year?  Do you like the idea of 2 colors this year?  I personally do think they go together really well and in a more modern way vs a baby shower way.

 

Why Not Rock A Blazer – mark. Tipping The Scales Jacket

Rocking Blazer – mark. Tipping The Scales Jacket

Rock a blazer?  Why not!  This time of year, pre-spring if you will, is the perfect time to rock a blazer!  It’s still chilly so a jacket you can wear like a top is the best way to stay chic and warm.  You can rock a blazer with your work wear or your going out clothes which is why the investment is well worth it.  I’m currently rocking the mark. Tipping The Scales Jacket.  It isn’t like anything I already own with it’s take on a tux jacket made more casual with snakeskin print in a more casual material.

Rocking The mark. Tipping The Scales Blazer

I rocked my mark. Tipping Scales Blazer with a black tee and blush columnist pants from Express.  There’s these slight pinky undertones to the grays in the blazer so my blush pants looked killer with it for a wear to work outfit.

Snakeskin and Blush

For my accessories I went with the Feathered Friend Necklace and Grows On You Bracelet from mark.  These accessories have been in heavy rotation lately!

Lip Of The Week: Avon Beyond Color Lipstick in Uptown Pink

The Word On Uptown Pink: Maybe it’s early but Valentine’s Day inspiration is creeping in on me with pinks, reds and the like.  I literally wore this mauve pink shade everyday this week.  That could also be that I think it looks best with a simple makeup look and that’s all I’ve been motivated to do lately.  Think concealer, highlighter/blush, lots of mascara and a little eye liner.  Super quick and the trendy lip shade steals the show so you look put together.  Speaking of trendy it kinda mimics the upcoming Rosie shade from Kylie Lipkit only with a satin finish so more wearable.  And a fraction of the cost… Beyond Color lipsticks are on sale for 2 for $7.99!  (shop it here)
