Overall I think this is a pretty good product, but its a little pricey for me, and it has some shimmer or leaves some shine that Im not too fond of. When I run out of this I'll probably try something else.
Love this product. It doesn't have a horrible smell like most self tanners (but still does have a distinct smell, some may or may not like). Its way better than other gradual tanning lotions, and I haven't had any trouble with streaks or patches.
I love this mascara. At first it was a little weird because it has little fibers in the formula (looked like tiny eyelashes in the tube), but the fibers get brushed on and bond with my lashes when I apply the mascara and it looks almost like I've put on false eyelashes. I like the formula too because it doesn't clump on me at all, and it stays put all day (unless it gets wet, but they never claimed it was waterproof and I still haven't really run into any trouble from it). I love this one and only hope it doesn't get discontinued like so many AVON products do.
I have the moisture milk, and while it doesn't smell bad at all, it just doesn't seem to be appropriate for a body scent. I guess that for me the lemon is just too close of an association with kitchen cleaners. Still nice for light moisturizing.
Its a nice shower gel. Lotsa lather and a good scent. I also really like the hook packaging. I will only buy this on sale though. I just can't see paying $6 for it when I know that AVON frequently has sales. I've seen it drop to $1.70 at times.
I own a few of the eyeshadow duos and I really like them. I have the rich mauve duo, the natural light duo, and the natural medium duo. They seem to stay put and blend with ease. I also love the price. I only gave it 4 out of 5 because Im not fond of the applicators, but I haven't really found an inexpensive eyeshadow with an applicator that I do like yet.
Love it. It doesn't end up under my eyes instead of on my lashes. Great applicator. I only wish it came in a waterproof formula. EDIT - I had to take down one lippie because I feel that the tube dries out quicker than mascara should. I've bought several now and they all seem to dry out quickly (only last about a month instead of three). I still think its a really good mascara though, especially for the price.

I think this product is nice for every day use, but is NOT good for photographs. I asked the salesperson if the shimmer in the product would be okay for photos and she assured me it would not be a problem. So I used it on my wedding day and every picture our photographer used a flash on just reflected so brightly off the powder that it made me look extremely shiny (of which Im not at all), this is most upsetting to me because its not like we can just take more wedding day pictures another time. Good for everyday use, but avoid it if you know you're going to be in pictures that day.
