7 Reasons I Love Being An Avon Lady!

I love being an Avon Rep! I’ve been using Avon products since I was a kid and I wanted to share my 7 reasons why I think Avon is so amazing. Here goes!

#1 – Tried and True! – Avon has been in business for over 100 years and continues  to offer women quality products, excellent customer service and the chance to run their own business for a very low start-up cost.

I’m also super nostalgic over Avon! My mom, Aunts and cousins all used it growing up and it’s fun to see and order products staples from my childhood like Skin So Soft!


#2 – Avon Breast Cancer Crusade – As a breast cancer survivor I love that Avon supports Breast Cancer Research.

“Avon will contribute 15% of the sales prices of Pink Hope fundraising products, up to $350,000 per year, to the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer® program.”.

#3 – My Husband loves Avon – My husband is super picky about hand and foot cream and he loves the Avon line. His favorite is the Avon Foot Works Maximum Strength Cracked Heel Cream. He’s also asking me if I remembered his foot cream every order.

#4 – Lipstick – I have a bit of a lipstick problem. I love having at least 20 shades on hand (I told you I have a problem) and Avon lets me do this for a great price. The Avon True Color Lipstick formula is amazing and comparable to the more pricey brands.

#5 – I get to meet nice people – I love meeting new Avon customers and reps on my Facebook page. Everyone is so friendly and nice. Avon Ladies and their customers are AMAZING!

#6 – I get to work from home – I’ve actually been working from home for about 15 years as a social media manager and community organizer. I also write a beauty blog some moving into Avon made sense. I love being home for the bus, being able to switch the laundry mid-day and having the freedom to come and go as I please.

#7 – Avon is soooooo easy to sign-up – This was a huge perk for me. I tend to do better with online training and I like to work at my own pace. Avon allows this. It literally take 30 seconds to sign up as an Avon Rep and It’f FREE to sign up until March 31st. You get instant access to your free eStore and online training tools.

3 Happening Pink Lipstick Picks For Spring!

I have got major Spring fever so I decided to bring 3 of my favorite pink lipsticks front and center to banish the Winter blues. From left to right and top to bottom swatched (MAC, Urban Decay and Avon).

Here goes…take that Winter!

MAC Liptensity Lipstick in Gumball – This creamy bubble gum pink lipstick is super creamy and silky with powerhouse staying power! Price: $22

Urban Decay Vice Lipstick in Big Bang – The Urban Decay Vice line has a whopping 135 shades of lipstick. I love the gunmetal case and the metallized hot pink of this one. It look good layered too. Price: $19

Avon True Color Lipstick in Tender Kiss – This rosy pink lipstick comes in 40 shades and is formulated with Shea Butter, Omega-6, Sunflower Seed Oil and vitamin E to keep lips soft into Spring.

Avon Crave Lip Gloss Review

The Avon Crave Lip Gloss comes in 12 scents including Hot Tea, Cucumber Spritzer, French Toast, Chocolate Brownie, Cherry Creamsicle (pictured below), Minted Apple, Birthday Cake, Pumpkin Latte, Strawberry Glaze, Citrus Sangria, Peach Bellini and Salted Caramel.

I tried out the red Crave Cherry Creamsicle scent today and love it. This shiny formula is infused with moisturizing vitamin E and has a pearl finish.

I really like wearing the Crave lip gloss by itself or layered on top of a matte lipstick shade. I love that you can get different shades from clear to brown. Crave gives my lips a nice shine and has decent staying power for a gloss.

The 0.3 fl. oz. tube is a cute size for a pocket or a purse and they would make super cute gifts for Easter baskets or Mother’s Day.

Avon True Color Nourishing Lipstick Review

The Avon True Color Nourishing Lipstick comes in 25 shades including Ruby Kiss and Playful Rose pictured below.

I love this product because it keeps my lips in good condition, especially in the Winter months and I’d much rather wear a moisturizing lipstick than lip balm. I love having color on my lips!

The Avon True Color Nourishing Lipstick formula is “Infused with marine collagen and jojoba oil to nourish, plump and soften lips and fine lines”

Being almost 50 my lips tend to be on the dryer side and I can’t wear matte liquids because the really dry out my lips. I love this formula because it has a satin finish and my lips feel more moisturized when I wear it. I feel like it has a good pigmentation and wear for a satin finish.

MOODMatcher Twist Stick Lip Color Review

I received the MOODMatcher Twist Stick Lip Color in Green in my September Glossybox. The lip stick has a retail price of $10 and it comes in green, orange, pink, yellow, light blue and red. Every color produces a different shade when it reacts with your lips.

What’s to love?

This is a nice light weight lipstick and I love the packaging and design. I got the green shade which gives my lips a nice shiny pink shade. I also love that  it moisturizes my lips without feeling heavy or gloopy. It does say that it lasts 12 hours but mine faded a bit with food and water.

The MOODMatcher Lip Stick has Aloe Vera and Vitamin E.

MAC 7-Piece Mystery Haul Review

Last week I ordered a MAC 7-Piece Mystery Haul for $49. My only issue was that I would have liked more neutral lip shades. I got a light purple one that I’m not crazy about.

Here’s what I got:

Total – $114

I keep getting samples sizes of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Gloss in various beauty boxes and I’m really loving this formula that comes in 53 shades!

I have…

  • St. Tropez –  Iridescent rose gold

St. Tropez is my favorite because it has a very cool sparkly iridescent finish!

Full-Size Price: $16
