When I was in graduate school and wanted to make some money for “extras, I signed on to be an AVON representatives. My sales skills were lacking, but my enthusiasm for the products, was strong. Avon continues to create high quality products in every beauty category, that are affordable to the average (but still discerning), consumer. Although my career a an Avon Lady was short-lived, I still love the brand!@ When Avon launches a new makeup collection, I’m always excited. The latest makeup collection of all new products are designed with every skin tone in mind, featuring True Color Technology and contains self-renewing pigments (the color you see in the package, is what you’ll actually see on your eyes and lips). This new collection includes 55 shades of Ultra Color Lipstick, 23 shades of Ultra Glazewear Lip Gloss, 14 True Color Eyeshadow Quads with easy to follow numbered shades, True Color Eyeshadow Duos and Singles, NEW Ultra Color Lip Crayons, SUPERShock Gel Eyeliner Pencils and more!
Obviously, The Advice Sisters didn’t get a truckload of these products sent to our house! But we did get some to try. Here is a description of what you will experience when you head over to avon.com to check out and order online, or when you’re calling up your favorite AVON representative, to order:
Ultra Color Lipstick: New Formula, New Shades & New Packaging!

The new formula also features lip-nourishing Shea Butter, Omega Oil, Arctic Berry and Vitamin E and makes lips feel smooth and moisturized instantly. New packaging offers a clear view window so you can see your shade instantly. The “Brown Suede” color we tried was a deep and toasty brown with a hint of pink, but this new lipstick is available in 55 shades with soft matte, satin and shimmer finishes. At just $8.00 it is a high quality bargain. The lipstick is super silky, opaque, creamy and moist. Love it!
Ultra Glazewear Lip Gloss: New Formula, New Shades & New Packaging! Avon’s Ultra Glazewear Lip Gloss has a new formula with Pure Revealing Technology and self-renewing pigments. The shiny gloss in a wanded tube glides on smoothly and contains lip loving Shea Butter, Omega Oil, Arctic Berry and Vitamin E make lips. The slim packaging with wanded applicator comes in 23 shades with cream, shimmer and sparkle finishes. I tried the creamy formula of “Crystal Lilac” which added a shiny, light look to my lips. You can slick it on over another light or dark shade, to make it your own. For $6.oo you might want to get a few for your Fall and Winter makeup wardrobe.
Ultra Color Lip Crayon: New! This new rich creamy lip color and liner in one is formulated with Pure Revealing Technology and is designed for different skin tones. The new formula with Shea Butter and Vitamin E glides on smoothly and feels comfortable. Available in 10 shades with a shimmer finish. Price: $8.00

Designed with every skin tone in mind. 14 Quads for just $7.00 each are available with new packaging that features step-by-step application education. I tried “Stone Taupe,” with soft shades of brown, beige and cream that are numbered for foolproof application.The shadow is also available in 11 Duos and 20 Single shades. I tried a Du shadow called
Almond Biscotti” that I really liked, with a soft matte vanilla paired with a very intense, deep matte brown shadow ($6.00 per duo) . A single shadow ($4.00) in “Mauved/Rose” has a pretty shimmer.
True Color 8-in-1 Eye Shadow Palettes: New Shades! The perfect all-in-one range of coveted shadow shades, Avon’s True Color 8-in-1 Eye Shadow Palette has new rich vibrant color with crease-proof wear. The 8 shades deliver superior, stay-true color with every skin tone in mind. Available in 4 palette shades. Price: $10.00
Supershock Gel Eyeliner Pencil: New Shades! Intense color can be yours, with a pencil formulated with 20% percent liquid-gel to smoothly create a flawless line every time. Available in 5 shades for just $8.00 each.
Kohl Eye Liner: New Shades! Drama is yours, but with a skin-loving, Shea Butter infused formula that lasts. A foam smudger makes blending a lot easier, especially if you don’t have a steady hand, but I still found that this pencil was a bit challenging to apply smoothly. Still, it lasts a long time and for that I give it a thumbs up. There are five shades available at just $7.00 each. I tried “Midnight” an intense medium blue, but there’s also a violet, black, brown and grey.
