Jewelry time!

It’s jewelry time now! Months back, I had created some jewelries, but I was lazy in the writing part, so I’m going to place those jewelries out here now, together with some Avon jewelries that I like.

Blissful Blues Drop Pendant Gift Set

About this product          
This set is a faux stone set in burnished brass. The necklace is 17'' long with a 3'' extender.  The pierced earrings are 1½'' long.

What do I think about this product?
This is a very pretty set; I love the sparkling faux stones of this set.

Pink party bangles                                                         
I had planned to wear my pink sari to my cousin’s wedding party. A sari is a 5½ meters long unstitched garment that’s wrapped around the body. It’s a perfect fit for women of all sizes and worn world-wide by millions of women. I actually don’t know how to wear a sari, but my elder sister and my mom had helped me with it. I’ll place some sari pictures out here next time.
Everything matched perfectly, but the only thing missing were some matching bangles. So I decided to make my own bangles.

The watch and the Solitaire Ring with Jacket Set are Avon jewelries. The ring is a Silverstone CZ ring with two crystal-accented jackets. I actually love the rings with jackets from Avon and I love wearing them all together.
You can wear the 3-piece jacket rings 3 ways:
ü  Solitaire alone
ü  Jacket alone
ü  All together
The ‘Solitaire Ring with Jacket Set’ isn’t available at Amazon, but there is another Avon jacket set, the ‘Marquise Ring with Jacket Set’ available that looks a little bit different then my ring.

These beads were perfectly matching; I had polished some wooden beads with my pink Avon nail polish.
Tada! This is what I had finally created.

Sexy beach beauty

I’m back with my ‘Funky Bean’ and my ‘Love Sick Monskey’, but the two aren’t available with the Avon products.

SuperShock Liquid Lip Shine SPF15 in Tickled Pink

About this product          
SuperShock Liquid Lip Shine SPF15 is Avon’s biggest and boldest lip gloss ever! It’s available in 8 different shades.

The brochure ads
Shockingly sexy lips in one super sweep. Oversized applicator with well tip holds and delivers smooth, full-coverage color and shine. Take lips to the max!

What do I think about this product?
I had given this lip gloss in the shade ‘Pumped Up Plum’ and the SuperShock Max Mascara (from the previous post) to a friend as a birthday gift and she told me that the gifts are perfect. So maybe you can also surprise one of your friends with this lip gloss, though the ‘Pumped Up Plum’ isn’t available at Amazon at the moment, but the other 7 shades are available.;)
The SuperShock Liquid Lip Shine SPF15 in Tickled Pink is actually my newest lip gloss. This lip gloss feels comfortable on my lips and I also feel comfortable applying with the super applicator, which delivers a little bit more color then the normal applicators. Though when I layer it more then 2x on my lips, the lip gloss seems to easily get on my teeth. I love the pearly high-gloss lushness of this lip gloss. I would rather say that this lip gloss is a sheer-to-medium coverage; you can still see a little bit through it if you layer it on your lips a few times.
Going to the beach? Take this lip gloss along with you to turn you into a beach bombshell. There’s SPF15 to protect your lips from harmful UV rays. It’s also great for wearing at night; I was actually wearing this lip gloss at night past Friday on my cousin’s birthday party.

My score: a 9 out of 10

Solar Advance Sunscreen Body Lotion SPF30

About this product          
The Anew line is a skincare and makeup line designed for the aging skin. It’s a line for women above 30 years of age. Now there are also sunscreen products available of this line to repair as well as to protect.
The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends Anew Solar Advance sunscreens as effective in preventing sun-induced damage to skin. Solar Advance has received the Active Seal of Recommendation from the Skin Cancer Foundation.

The brochure ads
Makes skin look and feel dramatically tighter and more toned. In vitro test shows 50% repair of skin cell sun damage in 24 hours (measured in reconstructed skin after UVB exposure equal to approximately 10 minutes of summertime sunlight at 40˚N lat).
 ü  Broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection
 ü  Lightweight, quick absorbing
 ü  Very water-resistant
What do I think about this product?
I’m not 30+ yet, but I wanted to see how good this product really is, so I had ordered the trial size of this body lotion. At first, I feel a tingling sensation when applying this body lotion. What I love about the Solar Advance Sunscreen Body Lotion SPF30 is that it absorbs quickly and doesn’t feel greasy. I feel very comfortable wearing this body lotion and it has a soft neutral scent. I can’t say anything about the tighter and toned part, cause the trial version contains a small amount of body lotion to notice any difference on that part. If you like quick, easy applications like I do, there’s also the Anew Sunscreen Body Mist SPF28; the ads say, ‘Skin looks and feels firmer. Dark spots appear faded. Lightweight, oil-free’. I’m thinking of ordering one of the two full size Solar Advance products in the future. There’s also the Solar Advance Sunscreen Face Lotion SPF45 available, which I haven’t tried out, cause I have a very sensitive skin and I actually get rashes from the Anew facial products, except for the eye creams, but they seem to work very well on my mom’s skin. This is what the ads say about the Solar Advance Sunscreen Face Lotion SPF45 if you’re interested: ‘Dramatically reduces the look of wrinkles and diminishes visible discolorations.’ You can find the Anew Solar Advance products for a much cheaper price out here then from your Avon representative. I had ordered my trial size body lotion for $5; you can order it from your Avon representative for $2.99 soon and from the link below you can get it for $0.40 today!!! The full size sunscreen products are also much cheaper out here as well as the SuperShock Liquid Lip Shine SPF15.

My score: a 9.5 out of 10

A new makeup day

True Color Eyeshadow Quad in Caribbean Sunset

About this product          
The two new True Color Eyeshadow Quads by celebrity makeup artist Paul Innis are a mixture of strong neutrals and intense accents. The new high-impact quads are available in Caribbean Sunset and Vibrant Spice. There are also 10 older quad combinations available in the brochures.

The brochure ads
Fade-proof, crease-proof color wears up to 12 hours. Shade, contour and highlight with True Color Eyeshadow Quad for eyes that mesmerize.

What do I think about this product?
The colors of the True Color Eyeshadow Quad in Caribbean Sunset look like beautiful bright colored sparkling satin; the colors actually look prettier than on the pictures of this quad. The mesmerizing colors feel like a cream-to-powder eye shadow when applying it. I couldn’t seem to find my eye shadow brush; I’ll probably have to order a new one. I had used my new paint brushes and the included applicator to apply my eye shadow. The included applicator is very handy; it helped me in applying the eye shadow in a precise way. I was wearing this eye shadow quad on a party past Sunday. When I looked in the mirror to remove my makeup after 7 hours, my eye shadow still looked as if it was freshly applied; so ya, I do believe that it wears up to 12 hours. You should definitely get at least one of the two new eye shadow quads. Too bad that they don’t have the new quads at Amazon yet, but I’ll inform you guys if they’ll have it soon. It’s the best eye shadow I own!

My score: a 10 on 10!

SuperShock Max Mascara

About this product          
SuperShock Max Mascara is Avon’s biggest and boldest mascara ever. The mascara is available in black and brown black.

The brochure ads
Helix brush layers your lashes to their very tips. Up to 15x the volume. High-gloss lushness with one swipe. Super brush delivers maximum fullness. Take lashes to the max!

What do I think about this product?
To complete my Caribbean Sunset look, I had used my SuperShock Max Mascara in black.
The SuperShock Max Mascara is actually the biggest and boldest mascara I’ve ever seen. I was actually thinking if it would be easy to apply mascara with a big brush, but I found out that it is easy to apply mascara with this super brush. The mascara doesn’t look and feel glossy, but I love the volume, and my lashes also look longer. I had counted 15 of my hair and had held them together to see how 15x the volume of one hair would look like. I think that I had created about 7x the volume of my lashes with about 3 coats.

My score: a 9.5 out of 10

(My ‘Funky Bean’ on my eye shadow quad and my ‘Love Sick Monskey’ on and next to my mascara are not included.)
