Last Saturday was date night at a (new to us) French bistro with the hubs in Avon’s Adorned Filigree Statement Necklace, the elephant studs from their Prosperous Elephant Earring Pack and 2-in-1 Lip Tattoo Lip Line & Fill Duo in Renegade Ruby!
I love the look and idea of the necklace but, in practice, I had some issues with it. Because the pendants are so large, they are also heavy, which caused them to be victims of gravity and lay all wonky. Since they laid in a cockeyed fashion, they messed up how the beads should have laid and also how the chain supporting all three pendants laid. These things drove my OCD crazy. I tried to get them to lay correctly for the pics, but it was a losing battle. ::huff::
The earrings are darling! They are all studs in the pack, so individually they don’t pack much punch size-wise, which suited me fine with the larger necklace I wore. I again mixed up the jewelry collections because I loved these two together before – they really do look like they belong with each other! I realized after the fact that I didn’t get terribly great shots of the earrings – my bad!
The ruby lip tattoo is a gorgeous red shade! I wasn’t sure how well I’d like it, but I really loved the color! Unfortunately, I ate a lot of messy French sauces with dinner and drank coke, all of which took a toll on how long the shade lasted before fading. My lips were a hot pink shade, rather than the ruby red, by the time we made it home from dinner about 4-1/2 hours after its application. I suspect if I’d gone easier on my lips, the color would have lasted longer, though I’m not convinced it will last as long as the merlot or raspberry – both of those have deeper pigments in them and I think they stick around longer as a result.
It’s Favorites Friday!!
I’ve been holding off on adding Avon’s Magix Tint Brightening Tinted Moisturizer to my list of faves until I got some solid time using it in – and now it’s been a couple of months! So, here goes my review!
Since I’m pushing 50 years old, I’ve noticed that medium to full coverage foundations tend to magnetically pool in my “fine” lines, which only ends up accentuating them – totally not what I want! So, when Avon brought back a tinted moisturizer, I jumped at testing it out! Continue reading
Each Monday I gather up the daily QOTD (Quote of the Day) posts I made for the week that are inspirational, motivational or just plain funny.
This week I featured daily sale highlights from Avon’s campaigns 15 and 16 as follows:

Last Saturday I visited the kittens with the hubs before picking up groceries and no kittens had any red lipstick on their fur because I was wearing Avon’s new 2-in-1 Lip Tattoo in Rebel Raspberry!
I’m really impressed with the lip tattoo! It truly doesn’t come off or fade after several hours of wear. It didn’t transfer any color when kissing on the hubs (or on the kittens). It didn’t transfer any color when eating or drinking either. I thought the rebel raspberry would be more berry than red, but it was very red on me. I actually liked it though! Which was a good thing, because getting it off is a whole ‘nother story – I actually woke up the following morning with some of the shade present on my lips…and that was after trying to remove it with makeup remover the night before!
