I like to use this on my toes only, it gives it a cute subtle sparkle of blue and pink with that gorgeous shine!

THE SMELL <3 and it is super moisturising I dont even have to apply it on both top and bottom, just one side is enough to keep my lips hydrated for a good 2 hours or so. I will definitely get this again :)

At first I was in love with the smell, it reminded me of mango sorbet but after a while it was really sickening. The texture wasn't smooth enough it was a bit too buttery.
I don't think it's a treatment conditioner. It doesn't have that creamy consistency that helps to detangle my hair. I leave it in for 3 - 5 minutes to activate the product but it still doesn't do the job. And it smells really weird as well so all in all was a big disappointment

The smell puts me to sleep! I love how calming it is and it doesn't irritate my skin at all. I'm on my second 400mL bottle :)
This foams up really nicely compared to Sukin and I only need two pumps of this. I love the smell surprisingly and it doesn't do anything special, it really helps to maintain my hair and I feel as if it has helped a lot with my fall out. In terms of moisturising .. I think it does a pretty good job at locking in the moisture.
I would buy this again in a heart beat! I love the jelly finish. 3 coats is alright but 4 coats really completes the desired look. I just love the fuschia! The polish holds up well, hardly any chipping (maybe due to the number of layers :P). Such a shame that this was limited ediition, I was bending over my arse to find it!
I love the effect when I apply the second coat. I wish the glitter was more prominent. I mean It's a truly beautfiul and unique shade but I only really love this polish in the sun or under really bright light where you can see it at its best. Yes, it's a little streaky upon the first coat but it reaches the bottle colour at the final result. Definitely an evening or winter polish :D
Not that great, it slightly stings my skin but goes away after 5 seconds. Sure it's great at moisturising but it isn't anything HG or special. I've always thought it would be ULTRA moisturising but to be it's just a lighter version on QV or Cetaphil. Very basic so the price is a little iffy. It lasts so very long.
Mild, yet very effective. I don't find there is any distinctive smell/scent. I love the way it lathers up because when I rub it in for the first 30 secs it feels so rich and creamy but then it deeply cleanses my skin without stripping any oils or feeling harsh. I love the squeeze tube and the opening is perfect for dispensing the right amount. Definitely will repurchase the whole ultra facial system when I'm finished.
I've been using the ultra facial system in synergy for 2 and a half months now and I absolutely love it. It did more for me than the Clinique 3 step system. I love the milky texture and it absolutely refines the texture of my skin. It really cleans it without stripping away any oils because of I have dry skin with a little acne. I don't think it's pricey and I bought the whole set with the ultra facial cream for AUD$66

What a disaster. Looks great from the outside, but horrible on the nail. Sure it takes 3 coats for maximum opacity and the glitter looks great when wet but after a good quality top coat (seche vite) in hopes of sealing that 3d glitter effect ... kabloom .. disappointment. The shine is absolutely gone, it has an almost velvet finish and is streaky upon the first application. The glitter is barely noticable. It's an almost black varnish with green, red, purple, blue and gold glitter runny through it. The brush is similar to Dior's and I personally hate it on my thumb but it's not a bad tool for the rest of my fingers. It doesn't chip as fast as other varnishes so staying power is alright.
I am relatively new to Avon and this was my first purchase from the brand. I LOVE it! I have very sparse short lashes and this mascara does wonders to define and add volume and length. If you apply ONE light coat, it will hold up a curl. It is a dream to remove, comes right off with warm water. It only smudges A LITTLE BIT. It's not gunna smear all over your face and ruin your make up but just clean up with a cotton bud and you'll be good to go. I have a hate/love relationship with the brush. I like the tiny bristles and it disperses the product well but it's too big for my eyes! It got this when it was on 'sale' for AUD$15.
I don't think Avon gets much love or attention because for some its hard to find a representative. Luckily for me on the way to Westfield, this lovely mum handed me a brochure and a starter pack if I ever decided to become a rep myself. As a child I used to envy my neighbours for having Avon catalogues and products because I used to think it was exclusive. Now that I've grown up, I still like their products, the 'exclusivity'. I think ALL of their cosmetics are great value for money. ANYWAY getting to the actual product itself - GREAT, HG FOR ME, CHEAP AND SMOOTH. I like it better than Lancome eyeliners. It is the smoothest eyeliner I've ever used. I don't use this on my waterline because the dark brown is too dark for me and ends up looking like black eyeliner so I don't know how this wears on the lower lashes but it does not crease or smear on my eyelids. It stays on forever and is a dream to remove. I will be repurchasing this again and again and it is CHEAPER than the cheapest 'drugstore' eyeliners.
While this does give a very luminescent glow to your skin, it is very subtle. I personally mix this in with my Chanel VL foundation. I find that this does give the most beautiful radiant finish when applied alone but mixed or used under the foundation .. it doesn't really show up because the foundation masks the purpose of this illuminator. It smells and feels divine. Very expensive at AUD$70 it makes me feel luxurious and makes my dressing table look incredibly elegant.
