Mini AVON Haul (December 2011)

It's been such a long time since I bought anything from Avon and I almost forgot how much I love so many of the products. They've always got deals and promotions on so you're bound to get a bargain and their range of products are perfect as Christmas presents. I couldn't be bothered to locate my nearest representative so just went online.


1. Far Away Eau De Parfum;
2. Eternal Magic Purse Spray;
3. Super Enchant Mascara in 'Black';
4. 24K Gold Lip Gloss in 'Golden Peach';
5. Glazewear Sparkle Lip Gloss in 'Shimmering Amethyst';
6. Little Red Dress Lipstick in 'Broze Treasure.

I only ordered three items-1, 4 and 6. The other three were promotional freebies (result!).




One thing I absolutely love about Avon, is their perfumes. So ridiculously affordable and they don't smell cheap at all. They've got a fantastic range. 'Far Away' is one of my favourites and at £8 it's a steal! It's a sweet, yet fresh, mature fragrance. I like the tassel around the lid too. Nice touch. 

I was going to buy 'Perceive' as well but it was out of stock when I placed my order so I was a little gutted about that, even more so now that it's back in stock. But hey, I got a free perfume. Now, I wouldn't have selected 'Eternal Magic' (didn't even notice it) but it's a gorgeous lavender smelling perfume that I would definitely wear. 
I haven't tried this mascara yet but I really like the brush. Seems good for doing the lower eyelashes. 

I've been looking for a peach lipgloss and was pleased when I saw this online. It's got a hint of gold shimmer in it so would be perfect to wear on an evening out.

This was one of the three freebies. I definitely would not have bought it in this colour. It looks like a sort of cerise pink but when I swatched it, it appeared to be more of a purple. Although I've been quite curious to try out deep pink/purple on my lips, I'm not a fan of the glitter in it.   


I've been into bronze, brown and nude lipsticks of late so popped this in my virtual shopping cart. I liked it a lot when I swatched it and realised it's roughly a shade lighter than my skin tone so would work if I was to go for a subtle makeup look.

Have you bought anything from Avon (recently)?
