Power gem, ACTIVATE!! Featuring Avon’s Cutout Handkerchief Hem Top (sold out), Blue Power Gem Pendant Necklace (sold out), and Stainless Steel Everyday Set of 2 Earrings!
A bit of a mixed bag on the top. The cut and color is very flattering–I particularly love the placement of the straps. The material is thick, which isn’t a negative, but I’d have preferred it to be a little thinner and cooler to wear. I liked the idea of one of the straps having a ring in it, but in reality, once I put it on, the asymmetry bugged me and it looked like a mistake in the design. I’d definitely recommend it, but it doesn’t rise to the level of being a favorite.
It’s so easy being green…in Avon’s (May) Birthstone Earring Pack (no longer available)! Simple little danglies that add just enough extra-ness to a casual ensemble. Lightweight and easy to maneuver through mask ear loops, these couldn’t be more perfect for my (current) favorite jewelry aesthetic.
Virtual #AvonConvention 2021 be like…fmg Glimmer Eyeshadow Quad in Idol! Y’all know I’m a sucker for quads–collections of shades that are curated to all work with each other to deliver a complete eye look. In other words, they take the hard work out of makeup looks so those of us who are not as gifted at staring down a mega collection and picking out a few shades that will look great together–I like it when things are made easier for me. This specific quad comes with both matte and shimmer shades in hues that are more subdued for an everyday look. Don’t get me wrong–these shades can be built up to be much more dramatic in intensity, but they can also be applied lightly for more casual and professional looks. The shimmer shades aren’t overly shimmery to bring attention to fine lines and wrinkles, but offer enough of a glimmer to bring dimension to your look. While this wasn’t my most “fun” eye look, it still ticked all the boxes for the look I was trying to achieve. For those keeping score, that means these quads are still batting a thousand.
Settle in for a longer than usual read–there are a ton of selfies in this post!!
Vegas vacay vibes…in Avon’s Goldtone Filigree Pendant Necklace and Earring Set and High-Low Printed Top (no longer available). A few weeks ago, I finally took a vacation with the hubs to Vegas…and kicked it off in style!
Kissed by a rose…Avon’s Rose Goldtone Crystal 3 Piece Set (the studs in the set are not pictured), that is. For those that missed it in a previous post, I’m not a big rose gold fan, but I’m trying to be…and this necklace sure helped! It’s a perfect length and size to make a small, tasteful statement when worn with just about anything. These hoops are a different matter altogether. I picked these over the studs to make more of a splash but, just like previous posts, because they are wide where they thread through my ear, they lay flat and stick out the sides of my head, rather than face forward like a proper hoop should. I think it looks ridiculous–like a cartoon character. Needless to say, the hoops didn’t make the cut, but the necklace has certainly made a couple of repeat performances!
