I haven't had the opportunity to try out all of these new products yet such as the shampoo and conditioner, but for the skincare products, I must say they have already worked wonders, and further detail into my new healthier skincare regime will be up soon. 

Avon Calming Effects Illuminating Foundation in Ivory
17 Doll'd Up Mascara
Avon Supershock Gel Eyeliner in Khaki

I've always been a fan of Avon cosmetics and with their never ending sale, I thought I'd expand my range. The foundation is pretty similar to Revlon's Nearly Naked, which I really like. I've become a recent fan of light-medium coverage foundations as I like to let my skin breathe and show through slightly, with the addition of long lasting coverage. The range of colours is slightly too pink for my pigmentation, compared to the yellowy tones in the Nearly Naked foundation, which is better for me. However, if you're in the market for this type of foundation with pinkier tones, this one is for you.




This eyeliner is now a permanent feature in my make-up bag. Highly pigmented and great staying power - would highly recommend. I love the shades of colours this comes in too - perfect for each eye colour.

As for the Doll'd Up Mascara, I can't say I'm a fan, despite all the raving reviews. I'm just not a plastic brush kind of gal as they seem to do minimal things to my eyelashes. I'm a true fibre, Maybelline Falsies devotee, so anything less, I'm just disappointed. For lengthening purposes, it's OK and it does separate the lashes, but no volume is given. I do use it as a 2 step process, with this in the beginning and then the Falsies as a second application, and the results are good. However, this is definitely not a repurchase.
