Avon Cosmetics Review - Part 2

08:00:00

Hi there!

Just over a week ago now I posted a review of Avon Cosmetics, and called it part one and as you can probably tell by the title of this post, you've come to read part two! Read part one here if you didn't catch it!

I mentioned in part one that Avon had a lot of great offers on and there's always something for everyone! But those offers don't last forever, just like the ones I got so if you're going to get something don't wait around because they could change before you know it!

When I bought these lipsticks online I got a fabulous offer of buy one and get two free. To buy one it was £3.75 so really I was getting three lipsticks at £1.25 each! Bargain, right? I have checked online recently and although the offer isn't on anymore, they are reduced to £2 each! I'm not one to wear lipsticks very often, mainly because I don't own many colours that I like, so I thought that because the price was so good, I'd at least try a couple of different colours. 

REVIEW - I'd give them a 2/5. I loved the colours and you can't really go wrong with a bright red but I found that they didn't seem to stay on for long. Each of the colours did seem to work with my skin tone which is often what I go for. I took the Amethyst (darker one) on holiday with me and it worked really well to dress up my going out clothes at night and make me seem that little bit more glamorous. However, I stopped being able to notice that I had it on after around an hour so I'd constantly have to reapply it. I have had other lipsticks that have stained my lips much better so they have lasted a lot longer. That said, I really do like the colours, I even mix the two pink/purple ones, so I will continue wearing them until they run out!

Avon Speed Dry+ Nail Enamel in Mambo Melon
Now this was one of my favourite purchases! I ended up buying two, one for me and one for my Mum. The offer was to choose three items in this list and you got a free nail related gift worth about £20-30 (I can't quite remember what it was exactly). I already have a lot of nail stuff so I asked my Mum to help me out as she wanted a few bits and pieces. This nail enamel was less than half price at the time too! What caught my eye at first was the fact that it's speed dry which I always love because knowing me I'll decide to do my nails at a bad time and then need to do something else but I can't because my nails won't have dried yet. The quicker they dry, the quicker I can do other stuff! Next was the colour. There were quite a few to choose from but I kept going back to this one. 'Mambo Melon', what a fantastic name! I love it. I used to stay at the RIU Mambo in Dominican Republic all the time when I was younger and melons always remind me of holidays, so it was a perfect name for me. I couldn't resist it!

REVIEW - 5/5 Yes! I absolutely love it! It dries fast like it says it does. They colour is beautiful and perfect for holidays! I did think it was a bit too bright for my fingers but it looks amazing on my toes. You don't need to use a lot for it to actually cover the nail fully either. One coat is enough but I put two on just because. It simply gives me a very happy feeling. It's bright and cheerful and gets my in a holiday mood! This Nail Enamel is currently reduced from £6 to £3.

Nail Experts Liquid Freeze Nail Spray & Nail Experts Corrector pen.
These were two of the gifts you received when you'd chosen the three items. Along with a glass nail file not shown in the photo. The liquid freeze is a spray to spray on your nails after they are painted to help them dry much faster and the corrector pen is what it says it is. Both can be bought separately on the Avon website but of course I got them free with the offer. The liquid freeze is currently half price at £3 and the corrector pen is £7.

REVIEW - The liquid freeze deserves a 4/5. It seemed to work exactly as it says it does. Practically seconds after I had finished painting my nails and sprayed some of it on them, they were completely dry. Although I do think that the fact the nail enamel was quick dry also helped. The corrector pen deserves a 3/5. Again, it does exactly what it says it does and I love the idea, especially because I'm so terrible at actually getting nail varnish on my nails, but I was worried that it might only be useful once or twice then I'd have to throw it away because the nib is full of the nail varnish. I don't know if there's a way of cleaning it or getting refills but at £7 per pen, I don't think it's worth it. I'll stick to my cotton buds and 'Quickies'.

There we are. A finished Avon Cosmetics review. I will say that my Mum liked her products as well. She got the exact same Mambo Melon, as I mentioned, and a Nail Experts Peeling and Brittleness Solver which she seems very happy with. Her nails were really brittle but now they are actually feeling stronger, healthier and they are starting to grow!

Overall I was really impressed at what I managed to get, and for the price too! Many of you said in the comments on my last post that you thought Avon was a bit out of touch with modern day but I really think they are starting to bring things back around! I can't wait until I can get some money so I can have another little online shopping spree and get some more goodies. There are some fantastic holiday offers on at the moment for skincare, hair care and make up!

I shall see you all later!

  1. My mum used to always get Avon when I was younger, but I've not used any of their products in ages. It's a real pity about the lipsticks not having great staying power!

  5. It's a shame the lipsticks aren't that great as the colours look amazing - I am loving the shade of red of the nail varnish as well.

  6. I used to love browsing through the avon catalogue and trying out new things. Havent heard as much about them recently but I swear I saw a box being delivered to one of my neighbours (weve just moved) so will have to ask for a brochure when I see her! The liquid freeze sounds like something I could put to use!

    1. Me too! We've not had one for ages but there is something great about looking through a good old fashioned catalogue! You can find a local representative online by typing in you post code! :D

  7. I tried a few Avon bits and bobs a few years ago but never the lipstick (not a big lippy fan). I found their cosmetics okay but they always seemed to be missing something. I do think they are either too kiddy or too grown up in a way, or at least they were. Maybe they're finding their mojo again.
