Avon

Avon was strictly an American phenomenon, and a unique and pioneering one at that. The first Avon Lady was actually a man, young door-to-door salesman David McConnell from upstate New York. He launched Avon Calling in 1886, offering women cosmetics in the comfort and privacy of their own homes. By 1887, McConnell had twelve women employees selling a line of eighteen fragrances. And the numbers kept growing and growing. In 1939, California Perfume Company name changed to Avon Products, Inc. (10/6/39.) Today, despite the scores of expensive, prestigious American and foreign brand-name cosmetics, Avon ranks first in sales nationwide, with Avon Ladies ringing doorbells from coast to coast.

Hair Treatments -Avon -Advance Techniques Smooth and Shine Anti-Frizz Capsules

on 1/12/2018 4:48:00 PM

My hair is not curly, but it's got a bit of a wave and it gets frizzy easily. I thought, hey, this might be a nice, light alternative to frizz serums, which can sometimes weigh my hair down. Well, I should have sticked with the serums, because this really didn't do anything for my hair. No volume, no waves, no anti-frizz. Nothing. Maybe I should have tried it on dry hair, because one capsule on my damp hair didn't give me any results. Plus, they're really expensive. I bought them off ebay for $13 and since there are only 18 capsules in a container...well, it's a little pricey for what you get. There are so many better frizz-fighters out there for the price.

Primer/ Corrector -Avon -Makeup Setting Spray

on 1/11/2018 2:44:00 AM

Avon's setting spray is the 1st one that I've ever tried. The price point was nice, and there wasn't any annoying fragrance. Every time I used that, along with a face primer under my makeup, I have seen tremendous longevity in the amount of time that my makeup lasts.

The bottle is the perfect size to keep at home or to put in your travel makeup bag. It has a cooling sensation, so it would be nice for refreshing your face throughout the day. Another bonus that I've seen with it is using it on my eye brushes when applying makeup. Along with my eye primer, I spray my brush with setting spray and dip into colors that look as if they don't have a lot of pigmentation when applied dry. The setting spray boosts the color, as well as helps to reduce color fallout.

I have not tried any other sprays such as Elf, NYX, Skindinavia, Mario Badescu, Urban Decay, MAC Fix + or any other drug store/high end product. However, for this price point, Avon will remain my go-to setting spray. A+


Fragrances -Avon -LUCK for Her

foto

I do enjoy the beginning and think it matches the bottle well. Top notes are fresh, sharp lemony scent, mid notes are airy white florals with sweet Queen of the Night flowers just like the notes say. The first bit reminds me of Versace Yellow Diamond.

Unfortunately for the base notes do not match. Avon went and put in that same are that cheap n nasty unisex musk that nearly all their fragrances seem to share. I wish Avon wouldn't put this mens base in nearly every womens fragrance. To me it reeks like dirty bitter musk, mens cologne, makes me want to sneeze and gives me a headache. Why Avon??

Also when if you accidentally get it in your clothes it hangs around forever. Its near impossible to get out of synthetic fabrics as it seems to chemically bond to the material. I once brought an expensive satin dress for next to nothing because a previous customer had tried it on wearing an Avon style toxic musky scent. Well no matter what technique I did to soak or wash it that scent out it stayed in that dress for 10 YEARS and made me sneeze every time I wore it. Someone ought to tell Avon to tone it down.

Style - Fruity White Floral Musk
Top Notes - Italian bergamot, red berries, mandarin
Heart Notes - night blooming cereus (queen of the night flowers), white florals
Base Notes - sandalwood.

Lipstick -Avon -Avon True Color Ultra Hydrating Lipstick

on 1/6/2018 6:31:00 PM

I recently tried this product and love it! I have tried other moisturizing/ hydrating lipsticks and liked none of them. I always use a clear lip liner ( Avon has this too, and it works well) so I don't have to buy a gazillion of them to match whatever lipstick I have on. Line and blot of excess and I'm good to go with this! It is comfortable to wear and dries down to the same color, though less shiny and intense. I also use a sealant (Lipchic) over these and it stays on, whereas other moisturizing lipsticks the slickness would not let the sealant work. We have had below freezing temps where I live for a month now and these have been a lifesaver for my lips! They also look great on!

Fragrances -Avon -Outspoken Party! by Fergie

Sweet top notes of peony, some raspberry, some mandarin, creme brulee, caramelised sugar, milk, and waxy crayons. I love this part but the raspberry/mandarin fruit only lasts for 10 minutes. Mostly this fragrance is a base that smells like a blend of Avon's Secret Fantasy Star / Aromadisiac for Her.

A pleasant fruity floral, but I'm annoyed how Avon just gave me what I already brought from them. I already have Avon Secret Fantasy Star and Aromadesiac, as well as the Katy Perry Meow and Black XS they were inspired by. To give me what I already have in new packaging really annoys the heck out of me. I think this is why Avon gets the reputation of being derivative. Or why I hear people state "Avon fragrances smell all the saaaame!".

Weird bottle shape in this Fergie line is hard to store with my other fragrances and the lid doesn't feel like it fits the bottle properly. Doesn't click shut nicely. I have to squeeze it on and forcefully yank it off.

Style - Fruity Floral Gourmand
Top Notes - raspberry
Heart Notes - peony
Base Notes - sandalwood crème brulee
