Review + Swatch: Avon Ultra Moisture Rich Lipstick (Rose Lipstick) and Holiday Collection make up palette

June 21, 2013


A Review on the products I got from AVON last year December 2012.
This post was sitting on my drafts for quite some time already. And here, finally I am posting them on my blog .This is a scheduled post by the way =)

I bought these items at my own expenses solely for review and have not been paid for by AVON.
So, Let's get started! ............


*sorry for the poor image quality. i am using my samsung camera. the old model. I hope to get a much better camera in the future though.. Wink! =)




The packaging:

  What I love about it is that it comes in a dainty and clear cover so you can actually see the colors (eyeshadows and blush inside). It also comes with an applicator and a blusher brush. 
What I don't Like: it has no mirror into it. So you have to use a separate mirror for you to view your eyes/face in every application. It is quite big and bulky to fit in my travel kikay kit. You might need a larger kit to store it. And also, the product can get shattered easily if you drop it so it takes extra care in handling it.

The Swatch:
It is not so clear here in the photo but the colors are really great. Perfect for blending. =) I love it.

I hope I can post a look using these products here on my blog.

Skin Care: Cleanse, Tone, Moisturize

April 3, 2013

I have been starting to get conscious about my face since I have places my utmost closest attention on facial products especially make up. At the age of 26 and turning 27, I know I have aged and had to take care of my precious face.

I really aspire to have that flawless skin but unfortunately I don't. My face is no exception and it frustrates me sometimes to see those blackheads and oiliness that comes with it. My T-Zone is like so shiny you can swipe an oil blotting sheet and get it damped right then and there.

So, to end this misfortune that I so call, I am immensely taking this beauty ritual on a regular basis. I usually do just wash my face with just soap and water but then, I wanted to get that smooth and blemish free skin. I know sometimes I do have an unhealthy diet and I bet I should also start there. I'd like to take that opportunity to finally be conscious of what I eat. Maybe I'll do a separate challenge for that after this Skin Care 101 stabilizes and be part of my routine.

If only I have all the means to find and get a hand at all the Beauty products and facial treatments I would love to. But for now, let me just stick to these products that are affordable and somehow really work for me and my skin type. =)

First Step: Cleanse
I use the cleanser from the Tea Tree facial care set from AVON and the Eskinol Deep Cleanse Facial Cleanser. First, I wash my face with the tea tree cleanser. I love it cause it has micro beads present that will really get down on the pores of your face, but I only get a pea-sized amount. What i don't like about it is that it is quite rocky and somewhat strong on the skin but for me it just serves its purpose since I have an oily type of skin. It feels really refreshing after washing my face with it.


What I use for my face after washing and scrubbing is the Deep Cleanser from Eskinol, I love this product since it can gently clean away dirt and makeup on your face. Plus it also prevents blackheads and also whitens! =) This is what I am using as of the moment but the one in green variant is what I really love.


Second Step: Tone

After all the scrubbing and those deep cleansing on our pores, we need to apply a toner to tone down the pores of our skin. Toners help to close out the pores and get that smooth and flawless face. What I am using as the moment is the one from PONDs. It is an oil solution toner, perfect for my oily skin. What I don't like about this product is that is that stingy feel after I placed some on my face. I prefer the one from AVON though since it is much gentler and has that soothing effect on my face right after application. I can feel my skin now and has soften and is much smoother. Makes me want to purchase toners from AVON. For only 129 pesos why not.


Final Step: Moisturize

I love this moisturizer! I use it for day time and I apply it before my liquid foundation. It sits perfectly and it whitened my skin. I love this product so much! It also has SPF great for the sun's heat especially when i am out for errands.

And here is a look of my face after a 2 weeks of using the cleanser and toner products. For the moisturizer, i have used it for a month now and I would definitely repurchase. I can't go out without it. =)

Tutorial 001: Simple Smokey Eye Tutorial

March 21, 2013

Hi there lovelies!

Today, I will be posting my first eye makeup tutorial. =) I am a bit excited and anxious about posting one on my blog but since this is my first try please be good to me. =)

Lately, I have been gaining followers on this simple blog, today I wished to share to you my simple eye makeup look.

I am not really a professional make up artist but, I am inspired to be one and further hone my skills on this field. I am in love with makeup but just sad to say I can only afford the not so expensive products but I also consider quality above all.


DAY 7 - Fave Eyeshadow Color Palette

January 31, 2013

Hi how are you doing today?

My question for the challenge is a tough one since I am an eye makeup type of girl.
I love colors especially on the eyes and perhaps for me the eye is the most catching feature a woman has and accentuating it with the perfect shades of shadows would be unkaboggable! (cannot be outwon).

I have tried  various eye shadows as well from cosmetic brands like AVON, Ever Bilena, Colors Cosmetics (Colour Collection from Tupperware Brands) and also some China made products in the market.

My Skincare Regimen

December 10, 2012

Hi lovelies!

I apologize for not having updated this blog for quite some time. I have been busy with my day job lately, being having to update a lot of documents and finish some processes to meet company goals by the end of year 2012. Well enough of that, let me go to my post today.

I have been reading a lot of reviews of skin care products lately in other beauty blogs that I follow. And of the many of them available in the market today I am really digging to try new ones that I haven't tried before. Knowing that I have oily skin, I am prone to dirt clogging in my pores =(.




I know I don't have the perfect skin, but I am trying my luck out. Who knows, I may achieve greater results.

Upon my search and curiousness, I wanted to try this AVON skin care products, which I bought at my own budget. Having that fair skin, I prefer whitening and anti-bacterial products just to help cleanse me of my face with all the dirt and makeup. Let us take a look at these products, shall we??






REVIEW: Skin So Soft Whitening and Firming Hand and Body Lotion

July 12, 2012

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Avon has been known for its all time lotion favorites ever since it landed the Philippines and for more than 30 years had captured the hearts of many women of all ages.
I’ve been an avid lotion fan since then way back in high school and I must say I tend to get in touched with it on a daily basis.

The first time I got a grab on lotions was when I just turned 11 as far as I remember but ravaged the thought of having to use it again on my skin because of the greasy feel it has on me.

Now that I am 20-ish I can say lotions have greatly revolutionized and have even offered great variants around the market for the consumers to choose from thus, the cause of this blog post.

I personally love AVON’s SSS (Skin So Soft) array of lotions. Ultra Moisturizing Lotion, Intensive Whitening Lotion and the Whitening and Firming Lotion are amongst the ones I’ve tried. All were good that one can’t get enough of ordering as soon as one bottle got emptied, believe me I’m a self-confessed AVON Dealer/User. 

Here is my review on AVON’s SSS Whitening and Firming HBL


AVON PRODUCT CAPTION: Get Silky, sensual skin that tempts your loved ones to touch.

PROS: Non-greasy, moisturizing hand and body lotion, has the firming effect as soon as applied, whitening can be observed on frequency of use though, leaves the skin soft and smooth to feel and touch. Smells good and is soft and sensual. 



CONS: None.

TO USE: Apply generous amount to hands and body. Massage In circular motion onto skin until dry.

NOTES:  Item can be bought on AVON direct dealers or stores only. This lotion contains ingredients known to whiten the skin and improve skin’s firmness. With regular use, skin appears toned and looking radiant.

AVON SSS HBL comes in four variants:

  •                       Signature Silk Ultra Moisturization Lotion
  •                  Soft and White Intensive Whitening Lotion
  •                Soft and Sensual Whitening and Firming Lotion
  •                Signature Silk Replenishing Body Lotion

RECOMMENDED? Definitely Yes.

Come and get your own. 


Til Then,



You Might Enjoy
