I'm not usually a big fan of AVON. I'll be honest. My Grandma is an AVON lady and because of this I have tried the majority of the makeup products they have. Nothing has overly impressed me, but every now and again you can discover one product which changes your mind.
The product that did this for me is called the Jillian Dempsey for AVON professional corrector palette. I've been eyeing this up in the catalogue for a while, but originally it was over the £10 mark and I wasn't sure if paying that much is worth it for an AVON product... But finally, it came into the sale booklet for £2 if you spent over £5 in the book, so I managed to pick it up for a bargain price!
All I can say is that it is one of the best AVON products I have ever used. Its a concealer palette split into four colours, all for different purposes.
1- Lilac- this is used for 'providing a healthy looking glow'. I use this to prime my eyelids, and the light colour really does open up my eye and makes me look more awake.
2- Pink (more of a ivory skin colour)- this 'hides imperfections and dark circles'. I pretty much use this to conceal the under eye bags and spots that sometimes appear and it works a charm. It blends in really well and makes my skin feel glowy.
3- Apricot- this 'helps to brighten dull complexions'. If my dark circles are especially dark in the morning, I use the apricot colour over the pink just to give the illusion me being more alive then what I actually am (it's true, I don't like early mornings). It's the darkest colour but it really does add colour to the skin and basically does what it says: BRIGHTENS.
4- Yellow- this 'helps to counteract redness'. I use this particularly when i'm applying makeup when I get out of the shower. My skin is very sensitive, and when I get out of the shower my cheeks become bright red and blotchy and it sometimes stays for hours. I have been using the yellow over the redness then applying my foundation on top and I really have noticed a difference. What can I say? It works.
Here are the colours swatched in order, left to right:
It's a great little product. I can never find the right concealer for me, but the four different shades in this tackle all the problem areas of my skin. It's AMAZING!
