Spring Fling | Avon Spring 2018

Hello, blog fans! Clearly, I've had an imbalance when it comes to my blog / life balance, but I'm getting back in to the swing of things. I've got some really great posts in the works (think amazing drugstore liquid lipsticks, a luxe holo clad spring collection, and so much more!) But first, we're chatting up some cute spring goodies from Avon. I know, florals for spring, groundbreaking... but, so necessary. They're exactly what's needed after a few months of snow and gloom.

Can you ever have too many makeup bags? Sure, but nobody wants to hear that. I LIVE for a cute makeup bag, and the Savannah Blooms Nesting Bags are just that. The duo includes two floral bags that fit inside of each other for easy storing when not in use. They also happen to come with a special edition tube of Dew Kiss Lip Dew- a rosy tinted balm- that matches the print on the smaller blue gingham bag. Cute!

Much like makeup bags, you can never have too many pairs of tweezers. I am constantly on the hunt for mine no matter how hard I try to always return them to the same spot. The super adorable, tiny Mini Tweezers Set is a great option for stashing away and taking on the go. The set includes four little guys on a chain (so no one strays from the pack) with a variety of styles for all your tweezing needs.

Again, no such thing as too many makeup bags, right? The Savannah Blooms Makeup Collection features a modern motif on a sunny background, complete with faux-leather tassel zipper pull. Better than just the bag (btw if you love the print, it's available on a cardigan too!) it comes with a few spring makeup essentials, including:

  • True Colour Matte Eyeshadow Quad in On the Vine
  • Wash-off Waterproof Mascara in Black
  • True Colour Glazewear Lip Gloss in Citrus Shine 
  • Gel Finish Nail Enamel in Clover

Fresh greens aplenty is the main theme, with the On the Vine Quad. It features an all mate range of shadows that are very smooth (although a touch powdery) that boast excellent pigmentation and are easily blended and can be used as a subtle wash or bolder effect. I didn't love the look of the shades initially, but are quite fun when used with an added flick of black liner.

Lips get a wash of peachy gloss with Citrus Shine, that's packed with pink shimmer. It gives a gorgeous glow and reflects light for a really pretty effect without being too sticky or heavy on lips.

Spring is obviously the season for a few fresh hues and the Gel Finish Nail Enamel range is full of shades to add a little pep in your step. From subtle to bold, the range offers a really shiny finish that does wear a little longer than your typical polish.

If a clean, fresh, minimalist look is for you, Creme Brulee offers a cream hue in a crelly (cream + jelly) formula that looks incredibly polished and chic. Clover is an essential Spring shade, with its dusty mint hue and cream finish. For those who want more oomph, Lemoncello brings the sun with bold yellow shade and touch of tonal shimmer while Sapphired Up brings a deep, yet bold blue cream to the party.

Shadow primer is a staple product for most, and while I don't tend to stray from my favourites, Avon does have a colour-correcting option. The True Colour Eyeshadow Primer acts as a primer for longer lasting, crease-resistant shadow while also evening skin tone and hiding imperfections. The formula is a whipped, cream that is super smooth and melts into skin, but isn't quite enough to prevent creasing on my eyes.

Overall, some really cute and easy ways to add a bit of Spring to your beauty routine. What do you think? Could you use any of these products in your life?
