When my apartment was under construction (actually, under seige by a contractor who didn’t think four months was a long time to live out of a box), I needed to find creative ways to make up in the morning, without my usual arsenal of beloved beauty products. An Avon Makeup to Go face in a case, makeup kit from last holiday, was my salvation. In fact, this little kit from last year, was all the makeup I had to use all Summer, throughout Fashion Week, and into the Fall. It has traveled many miles in my carry-ons and suitcases.
For me, a new face in a case kit is not just a joy, but an essential.
Now for holiday 2012, Avon has created yet another stunning and affordable face palette, the Color Fold-Up Palette for just $19.00 A $55 value – boxed and ready to give! In a glossy black fold over case just about the size of an iPhone (actually it’s 5 3/8″ L x 2 1/2″ W x 1 1/8″ D (closed)., there are 39 shadows, glosses and blushes that fold out from the middle section holding three large blushes in warm pink, apricot, and rose. That middle section also holds a mini lip brush, sponge=tipped applicator, and blush brush. The other side of the mid section holds 18 glossy lip colors in creamy and shimmer formulas, in every color you could possibly want. Folding out as “wings on either side of these sections is a big mirror on one side, and 18 mostly shimmery shadows in easy to wear earth tones and nudes, plus a deep teal, and a chocolate brown (liner/definer). You can make tons of different looks from this compact that folds up small, but is really more like a mega-palette, and at a teeny weeny price. It’s a steal. And I don’t have to tell you that Avon products are not just affordable, they are good quality. If you don’t get this kit for every makeup-loving friend you know, they’ll be seriously upset! And, get one for yourself, too. You’ll use it to ring in the new year, and way, way, way, beyond.
…and for your BFF’s that love lip gloss, here’s a nicely boxed stocking stuffer called the BeJeweled Mini Lip Gloss set ($5.99) featuring five silky, shiny, shimmery lip glosses with something extra…each one has a “jewel” embedded into the top, to add a bit of glamour and sparkle. The dazzling, mini Glazewear Lip Glosses are .05 each, about the size of your pointer finger, and slim enough to fit just about anywhere. The glosses range from a shimmery clear, to a robust fuschia: in Fuchsia Fantasy, Gleaming Ruby, Sparkling Crystal, Plum Dazzle and Shimmered. They’re light and silky, not gooey, and depending upon the gloss you select, some add just a whisper of color, others, a glossy tint that doesn’t need additional layering. Slip one of these packettes of perfect glamour gloss into a stocking, and you will get squeals of delight. Or, get one for the office secret Santa, and your gift will be the ones everyone wants. If you’re on a budget, you can still give this pretty gift for under $6.00–awesome, Avon!
