Giveaway Break - Avon ANEW Clinical Luminosity Pro Brightening Serum

Did you know that in 2008, laser resurfacing procedures were the #5 non-surgical procedure performed in the U.S.? Now you can achieve results without the dermatologist's visits and bills, with Avon's latest skincare breakthrough, ANEW Clinical Luminosity Pro Brightening Serum.

It's formulated to treat tell-all signs of aging like uneven skin tone, dullness and discolorations. This topical serum harnesses the power of injectable-grade L-Aspartic Acid to help deliver effective brightening results at home.

"While many women are concerned about combating wrinkles, dark spots and discolorations are also responsible for the appearance of aged skin," explains Dr. Cheryl Karcher, board certified dermatologist. "ANEW offers an incredible at-home option to skin-brightening laser treatments, giving women everywhere access to more youthful, brighter skin."

In a clinical test, ANEW Clinical Luminosity Pro Brightening Serum demonstrated the following dramatic results:
After one week, 78% of women showed improvement in clarity
After two weeks, 72% of women showed improvement in skin tone
After four weeks, women showed up to 100% improvement in the look of blotchiness and mottled pigmentation
After eight weeks, 100% of women showed more illuminated skin with a visible reduction in fine wrinkles

ANEW Clinical Luminosity Pro Brightening Serum is $54 and available exclusively through Avon Representatives (800-FOR-AVON or Avon.com).

Avon Ultra Color Rich Mega Impact Lipstick

Avon's Ultra Color Rich Mega Impact Lipstick fits right in with my makeup selection for this spring. The vibrant colors and long-lasting shades are aligned with the latest lip color trends. Bonus - it contains SPF 15, which is why this will be a staple in my purse this Spring/Summer.

Blending chromatic pigments with color-match magnifiers, each shade is amplified by highlighting and reflecting its true hue.

Mega Impact lipstick goes on really smooth and is long lasting. I was able to try this out in Never so Nude and loved light bronze shimmer. This lipstick has a lot of color to it, and goes on bold (not like some lipsticks you have to put 3 layers of on), but not too bold where I feel like I need a liner or anything. I wore this shade by itself and it didn't dry out my lips like some other brands. No top gloss needed, these colors are really vibrant on their own.

Backstage with Avon - Get the Look!


Get the hot look that Avon hair stylist Allen Ruiz created for the Charlotte Ronson Spring 2010 New York Fashion Week show.

The inspiration for the look was a remake of 80's style. Allen created the fresh, young wispy look, that mirrors Charlotte Ronson's collection, and the look gives off the "just walked out of dance class at Julliard" vibe.

Allen loves the look because he says,
"Spring is all about wearing your hair up and away from your face. Radiate confidence and positive energy by styling your bun so it looks finished, yet slightly disheveled. Wearing your hair up in a bun creates a youthful, fresh look that is easy-to-achieve!"

Step 1: Prep the hair from root to tip with Advance Techniques Salon Volume Finishing Spray to enhance natural shine and create volume.

Step 2
: Using the Advance Techniques Paddle Brush and hair dryer, distribute the Advance Techniques Salon Volume Finishing Spray by sectioning off the hair and blow-drying to ensure that there is a natural, soft texture.

Step 3
: Next, gather the hair tight to form a ponytail at the back crown of the head and secure with a ponytail holder keeping all sides flat.

Step 4
: Holding hair at the base of the ponytail, twist the hair firmly in one direction to form a kink in to a spiral. Secure with bobby pins.

Step 5
: On the sides, using the little hairs “muse” the wispy hairs to play up the natural texture.

Step 6: Lightly spray Advance Techniques Hair Spray to complete the style and hold in place.

Lipstick Break - Avon Ultra Color Rich Extra Plump Lipstick


It's been ages since I've used Avon cosmetics. My aunt use to sell it back in the day and I use to love their tinted lip balms when I was in middle school. Well, I've graduated from the tinted lip balms and have moved on to lipsticks.

I recently tried the Ultra Color Rich Extra Plump Lipstick and absolutely love the way it feels and looks on. It has a 'magic' center core, which is packed with plumping power and hydrating moisturizers. It tingles once its on to let you know it's working. This lipstick has so much moisture I don't feel the need to put lip balm on before it. Using the Vita-Plump Complex, it's formulated to boost collagen. It doesn't tingle like most plumpers and it does make my lips look a bit fuller.

I tried this lipstick in Pink Sunset and loved it. It's a shimmery pink and is so shiny it looks like I have a gloss on over it.

Ultra Color Rich Extra Plump Lipstick is available in the following 10 shades:
Apricot Shimmer
Blond Ambition
Caramel Mauve
Coco Plump
Deep Blush
Pink Sunset
Plump Pink
Rosewood
Starlet Red
Deep Blush
Winerose

This lipstick retails for $8 and can be purchased through Avon Representatives nationwide. To find a Representative, call 800-For-Avon or visit www.avon.com.
