The Limited-Edition Sunset Beach Face & Eyes Palette ($15.00) is small enough for travel and loaded with beautiful pigment! There are only 4 shadows but they deliver a bold punch of color to create a variety of gorgeous looks. The texture is soft and silky with buildable coverage and effortless application. I recommend using a good primer for better adhesion but the shadows are crease and fade resistant. The tropical hues make me want to lounge by the pool and sip Pina Coladas in the warm breeze. Each shade is saturated enough to be worn on its own or mixed and matched in interesting combinations. The blush instantly brightens dull skin with a natural flush and the pink is universal.
To make your eyes appear even more dramatic, try the Limited-Edition True Color Tropical Breeze Multi Liners ($9.00 ea). Cool Waters matches perfectly with the blue shadow in the Sunset Beach Palette while Strawberry Parfait looks great with my favorite pink lipstick and Key Lime adds a vivid flash of color to the waterline. The creamy texture is easy to work with but I don’t think the formula is waterproof so you might need a touch-up when the weather heats-up.
Every woman who craves glowing skin should get the Limited-Edition-Edition Beach Bronzing Palette before its gone ($18.00). The velvety shades are rich, saturated and radiant on all skin tones. Simply sweep the color across the face and body for a luminous sheen that looks stunning in sunlight. The powders blend seamlessly with no messy glitter.
If you prefer liquid highlighter, Avon has created the Dazzle Drops ($18.00) for a candlelight-strobing effect. The formula is packed with light reflecting particles and a touch of moisture but use it sparingly, the finish can be quite intense. If you’re brave enough, add a drop to foundation for a glittery look or dab it onto the cheekbones for more dewiness.
Bright lipstick and summer go hand-in-hand so if you’re looking for the perfect pop of color why not contribute to a good cause in the process? Avon’s #Powerof Lipstick campaign is all about supporting women and for every 2 True Color Lipsticks purchased for $9.99 a pair, they will donate a lipstick to Dress for Success – a non-profit organization that helps women achieve economic independence.
These 3 shades are perfect for the season – Pink Dream has bronze shimmer, Poppy Love is a vibrant sunset orange and I’m calling the last shade bright pink because the sticker came off and I have no idea what the name is. These hydrating, satin lipsticks glide on effortlessly and drench your pout in sheer, supple color.
For a subtle, lit from within effect, try the True Color Highlighting Powder in the shade Quartz. ($18.00) You will want to keep this compact in your makeup bag or tote at all times because the natural glow is perfect for everyday wear and workplace attire.
While loading up on summer makeup, you might as well get a trendy new makeup bag. This one is called Avon’s Favorites - honoring a few timeless products. There is enough space for all my essentials and it's cute enough to keep on my desk. Get it at avon.ca for just $12.99.
