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.

Moisturizers -Avon -Anew Platinum Night Cream

on 12/12/2017 1:18:00 PM

Oh my goodness, NO!! Initially, when applying the night cream, it felt rich and thick, seemed very moisturizing - although I do not like fragrances in face products. I was getting ready to go to bed, brushing my teeth, when I looked closer in the mirror - whatever this stuff has in it, well - the product was pilling - much like a cheap sweater does after wearing it once or twice.

I actually took a second look at the product label - thinking I had mistakenly applied some sort of masque to my face - but nope, this was the night cream. I just kept rubbing this crap off - can't imagine how unpleasant that would have made my pillowcase the next morning if I had not seen/felt these clumps.

Buyer Beware.

Polishes -Avon -True Color Pro+ Nail Enamel

on 12/5/2017 11:01:00 PM


I've bought this polish in a Midnight Plum shade.

- the great color payoff can be used in one coat;
- the color itself is a very pretty, dark almost black purple;
- completely opaque and very even in two coats;
- dries fast;
- four days without a single chip with Seche Vite top coat (even longest lasting polishes on me can't stay with Seche Vite for a longer time).

- it is a thick polish. I don’t know why there are so many thick polishes on the market lately, but I don’t enjoy them. Working fast is a must overwise color will drag. Thin layers do not work, they don’t look even and it’s very difficult (read impossible) to apply it in a thin layer;
- it went on slightly bubbly from a new bottle;
- in the polish I've got the brush is misaligned with the cap which makes the application more difficult;
- it slightly stained my nails.

It's not a bad polish and the color is great, but I like Butter London formula much better.

Lipstick -Avon -Avon True Color Perfectly Matte Lipstick

on 11/26/2017 2:25:00 PM

-very cheap;
-good packaging;
-don´t require lip liner;
-don´t dry out your lips;
-opaque color after 1 swipe;
-long lasting for a non - liquid matte lipstick.

-some people would probably wish it was more durable but hey - if you snack and drink all day, you can´t complain!
-individual shades may vary in performance: I have them in Berry Blast and Marvelous Mocha, and the second one is far better.

I will definitely repurchase Marvelous Mocha after I run out of it, and maybe try something new!

Fragrances -Avon -Rare Gold

on 11/22/2017 1:28:00 PM


Perhaps it's just my body chemistry but when I sprayed this on my wrist my 35-year-old husband said I smelled like his grandmother. I had to agree, a VERY strong, old-fashioned scent that I was pretty quick to scrub off.

Fragrances -Avon -Little Black Dress

on 11/18/2017 2:00:00 PM


It's a warm "floriental" that I like a lot -- and so does my SO. If it had better lasting power, it would be a keeper. Because it doesn't, I'm not so sure. The matching scented body lotion is useless; the scent goes on VERY faint and soon disappears altogether, so it doesn't help the perfume last.
