Avon Haul #3 (Campaign 20)

 

Good morning my lovely readers. I hope your having a great morning so far. Things here have been a little off here as you can probably tell but IRL we have been dealing with sickness.
 
Michael was sick and stayed home from school on Monday and it appears that what he had, I now have. I am feeling a little better today but still blah.
 
Anyways as I sit here to write this post I realized that I have yet to complete my first and second hauls from Avon. That will hopefully be up soon. Maybe today if I can sit long enough to finish writing them up.
 
This haul is a small haul only because there wasn’t much I wanted to get.
 

 When I placed my order I was wondering how it would arrive. Would it be in the regular brown avon box or what? So it was nice to see that Avon does package accordingly. It came in this white bubble envelope.

 With each and every Avon order you get a What’s New catalog show casing what is coming up in a future campaign (as you can see this is for campaign 23) and a campaign catalog (this is for campaign 22).

This is all that I ordered. Not much.

Its been awhile since I have used the Avon Nailwear Pro+. Since it was on sale I thought I would try it out.

 The shade I ordered was Sheer Pink Flash and I think this could have been sent my mistake. I don’t remember if this was the shade I ordered or not I will have to check my invoice.

 As you can see it is sheer with  tint of color and you notice it more when you more your hand around in the light. Its nice and I will wear it when I want a sheer look. This was only one coat. The suggest you putting on 2-3. So I will do that and see  what its like. This retails for $6.99

 I love lip glosses so when I saw this Be Jeweled Mini Lip Gloss set for $5.99 I snatched it up.

 It comes with 5 lip glosses in 0.5g in the shades Fuchsia Fantasy, Sparkling Crystal, Shimmered, Pluz Dazzle and Gleaming Ruby. As you can see the picture really doesn’t do it justice.

 The tops are really cute and thought it was a nice touch.

 The applicators are all a doe foot. Which I really like.

 This is the swatches. Gleaming Ruby, Fuchsia Fantasy, Plum Dazzle, Shimmered and Sparkling Crystal. As you can see they are pretty pigmented with the exception to Sparkling Crystal where its sheer with some glitter in it. They all have some glitter in them as you can see. Hopefully soon I will have swatches of them on my lips.

The next two items will be sold in the next campaign (22) and they will retail for $12.99.

 I have to say I do like the packaging of these and they are a perfect fit for a make up bag as they are small and no bulky. The only thing I wish they would do with this is include a mirror.

 The first palette I am going to show you is the Crushed Velvet.

 Its Rich & Warm and perfect for yellow to peachy complexions as this will play up warm undertones. I don’t know what the colors are called at there are no names but I will try my best to describe them. The first one is like a gold or sand color, the next color is a copperish color, then a purple, a taupe/brown color and the last one is black which is your eye liner. All the colors with the exception to the black are shimmery.

 This is the sponge tip applicator you get with them.

 This is the swatch of the black. It looks pigmented on the finger.

 This is the swatch of them on my arm with no primer and in natural lighting. The first one is black, then it goes in reverse from what I mentioned above. They look like really nice colors and I am excited to try them out on my eyes.

 The secong palette I got was Velvet Smoke.

 Its Smooth & Cool and is perfect for pinkish or soft red complexions that will play up the cool undertones of your skin. The colors are a champagne, a light blue, taupe, olive green and black.

 I thought I would show you what they look like on the fingers. They go on really nice and don’t appear to be chalky.

 
This is what it looks like swatched in natural light without a primer.I don’t think I put enough on to do it justice but they seem like really nice colors.
 
What I like about the palette is that you can wear the colors on their own or to make a smokey look.
 
The black has 0.025 oz of product and the four eyeshadows have 0.101 total product (thats for each palette).
 
What do you think?
 
Reviews to come.

*please note that I purchased this haul with my own money and that I am a Avon sales rep.*
