Pretty in Pink

1

Happy Saturday!

So my brain has been bombarding with ideas to try out lately, the list is growing so fast I can’t keep up but this is what I love about blogging. As quick as you do one idea another springs to life. I’ve decided to do a series of colour themed posts on Saturday’s over the coming weeks. I am going to showcase my favourite products from each colour. Today is PINK.

I love pretty pink colours, I’m so girly yet for some reason I don’t own that many pink items, clothes or makeup. Sure, plenty of things have pink packaging but I don’t own that many with pink product but these are the favourites of what I do own.

Pink is so versatile, it look as natural o as out there as you want it to. Pale pinks are pretty and flirty whilst more vibrant pinks are playful and can me a luscious statement. Without further a do, here’s my best pinks.

Avon Speed Dry Nail Polish in ASAP Pink – I love the gorgeous shade of this nail polish, it’s like candyfloss. It’s super girly and summery.

M.A.C Powder Blush in Mocha – This is a dark pink, it’s warm tones and matte finish provide an elegant result and a deep flush. It;s one of my favourite blushers.

Avon Colour Trend Lipstick Pen/Crayon in Gone Pink – I love the shimmer on this product, I’ve nearly used it all up now but it’s really soft and easy to use and it’s a beautiful floral shade.

Rimmel Exaggerate Full Colour Lip Liner Definer in Eastend Snob – This is a grown up pink liner and works well under darker pink lipsticks and on its own. It is very moisturising and it twists up rather than needing sharpening. I’ll do a full review of this at some point.

Avon Colour Trend Lipstick in Amethyst – I usually equate amethyst to the purple colour group but this is most definitely a pink lipstick. It is highly pigmented and again it moisturises well too. It’s a dark pink, perfect for every day wear and a gorgeous Autumn shade.

Rimmel Colour Rush Eye Shadow in 030 Siren – This is a very vibrant pink, perfect for when you want to make a statement. It lasts well and is very pigmented.

What are your favourite pink products?

I’m a total newbie when it comes to nails but when I saw this tutorial on My Life Through the Eyes of the Web this morning I just had to give it a go and I love it. It’s one of the easiest nail art looks I’ve seen.

I selected a news piece about some of my favourite artists from the paper and cut them pretty roughly into 10 nail size pieces.

I then done 3 coats of Avon’s Speed Dry Nail polish in Prompt and Pearly, any light colour will work though. This nail polish is fantastic, it is so quick to dry that it took me the same amount of time to do 3 coats as when I do one of some other nail polish’s.

Then one nail at a time I soaked a piece of newspaper in mouth wash although any alcohol-based product (even vodka itself) will work and then I placed it gently on my nail and held it down. Carefully lift it up after a few seconds and your done! Awesome!

My nails now have Bruno Mars and Ellie Goulding all over them!

My Smelly Products Tag

Leanne Talks Beauty  tagged me in her My Smelly Products Tag last week and I thought it’d be fun to do, so here are my favourite smelling products.

Fudge Urban Seasalt spray – This smells wonderful, it actually smells like Malibu and when my hair catches the wind and I get a fresh whiff of it I’m transported back to holidays.

Soap & Glory  IFoam Body Wash – This smells like peaches and cream, it’s delicious, I actually just want to eat it but it probably doesn’t taste so good! It also washed really well and the scent does stick around for a good while after.

Original Source  Raspberry and Vanilla Milk – This is probably my favourite, it smells incredibly, do you remember those Campino sweets that smelt amazing? This smells like that only better because it’s raspberry not strawberry.

Avon  Rivera Goddess Body Spritz – I Love this budget scent, it lasts ages and smells really summery.

Ghost Perfume – This is my husbands favourite perfume of mine, it has an elegant floral scent and it now holds plenty of memories for me.

Superdrug Hand & Nail Cream – My colleagues love when I start dishing this out, it smells sweet and beautiful, it’s also actually a pretty good hand and nail cream.

The Body Shop Mango Body Butter – This has got to be another of my top ones, I love fruity smells as you’ve probably gathered by now, this one is sweet and definitely smells like mango!

L’Occitane Hydration Cream – This smells quite natural and earthy, it’s quite subtle actually but both my husband and I adore the smell.

Avon Anew Vitale Day & Night Cream + Eye Cream Review

AvonReviewed by Tams

A good day and night cream is a must for any skin care routine

So many people use the same moisturiser day and night and for me this doesn’t give the maximum care for your skin. The skin rejuvenates and repairs over night while you dream away so it’s really important to have a good night cream to help it along. A night cream is a lot heavier than the day cream when your skin does not need so much hydration.

This range from Avon is aimed at the 20 and 30 somethings and claims to improve the brightness of the skin in just 2 weeks. I can vouch for the fact that it does do just this and when I’m not busy road-testing other moisturisers this is the range I use. It also contains a decent SPF 25 UVA/UVB in the day cream which is great! This range leaves my skin beautiful and radiant and I love it.

I also adore the eye cream, it feels really silky and luxurious when applied around the eye area each day and night. I also love the scent of these products, it’s very girly and a little sweet.

They also come in very good size pots that last a long time and they are not too badly priced either not when you consider how long they last. Avon also do an Anew range for every age and skin requirements so if this one is not for you there is definitely one available that it. Contact your local Rep for advice on which to use.

What I love most: The effect they have on my skin

What I like least: It agitates my eyes if I get too close but I do have very sensitive and dry eyes.

Try it: Day Cream £19.50, Night Cream £19.50, Eye Cream £16.00 all from www.avon.uk.com
