Liquid -Almay - Almay Amazing Lasting Foundation ] [DISCONTINUED]

I really like this foundation. I dont know why some think it's too hard to blend, possibly they aren't applying it correctly. I start at my jawline and dab across, then pull the foundation upward to my under eyes. I do that to both cheeks, then I do my nose, then my brow. If it isn't smooth, just take your sponge and make little circles with it over your face, it smooths everything out. Must moisturise before, but this should be said for any foundation. The colour "pale" is almost an exact match, It makes me look alot more lively than my Everfresh foundation. Good coverage, and it lasts! (esp. when dusted with Almay's amazing lasting powder in translucent. )

Not too bad. I bought this because I ran out of my Kryolan concealer. It matches my skin EXACTLY (pale 01). It covers well enough, not as much as I wanted but still good. And it stays in place *when you powder over it*, otherwise I think it would just melt off.The only issues I have with it are: 1.Not alot of concealer in package 2.Settles into fine lines 3.once applied, I find it very difficult to apply powder over because it smudges.etc so to apply powder takes me AGES. Any hints?

I like the scent of this product. I have only been using for a week or so, and I do feel more toned. I cant massage for 5minutes like the package says because I get bored, and also it is hard to massage when the skin is dry after the cream is absorbed. But its a good product even though I am lazy :)
When I received this lipstick I was definitly shocked by the size..it looks like tester.The lipsticks are very small.It does indeed give you a bit of a pout, but I wont be buying again as the price is too high for such a small product.
Lip Gloss -Avon - Quick Pen Lipgloss - Violet Crystal

I bought this in lilac and nude. The lilac is nice, it's a pretty pink color that goes on well. The nude is more of a dark brown color and wasnt what I was expecting at all. Its an ok product, but revlon lipglide is much nicer
It would be a great product if it had more of a color choice. I picked the lightest available and I still turn slightly orange. I can blend it to make it look better, but for the price it isn't really worth it. You have to blend really quickly, and the coverage is really good. Also, it doesn't settle into fine lines which I have noticed with other products. I think that if you can get it to match your face exactly, then go for it, otherwise rather spend the money on something else.
this is really cute for simple lips. It adds a nice shine, and the pigments in the gloss make the lips lighter, but dont mask your natural lipcolor. I think its great.
I bought this after i saw my friend wearing it. On her it looked AMAZING. natural and flawless. So I went and bought it in the lightest color (Very Light 03)...it was orange. Im so upset because it's expensive and I really thought I'd finally found THE ONE. This foundation is great as long as you have the right skin for it. Warning: if it doesnt match exactly, it looks artificial. Definitly wont go near this again.

LOVE Avon color trend lipstick in Iced Champink. It goes on really well, and blends nicely. The color is a frosty pink that looks great with any makeup. I use this ALL THE TIME
Great color, i love light pinks for my lips. It goes on very well, and the sponge applicator is great. not to be worn over dry/chapped lips, as the dry skin shows through and looks dreadful. I really like this though, and will buy again.

I use this in Ivory, however i'm desperate to change it. The coverage is fine, maybe not quite heavy enough if you are trying to conceal freckles (to do that I use Kryolan concealer over this foundation, then set with powder). It does stay on for ages in cold to mild temps, but in the heat it melts off. Also I have noticed that it seems to sit in fine lines around the mouth and under eyes, so I look wrinkly. ( im only 20 ). Not too bad, i do buy it over and over, however if something better comes along I will drop this with NO guilty feelings.
