Avon products: Hot or not? / Avon proizvodi: Hot ili not?

Affordable makeup and browsing through catalogues can be fun, but are products meeting the expectations?
Sometimes yes but I'm staying loyal to drugstores.

I will start with my favorite product, and that would be new Perfectly matte lipsticks. They feel so creamy on lips and are not as drying as some others.They are long lasting and won't move unless you're eating or drinking.  I have shade Pure pink that is perfect cool bright pink shade for spring and summer although it is super matte. I like shade, but I would like to see a bit more natural shade in this range.  When choosing shade keep in mind that they are really pigmented so one swipe and you  will have exact shade from catalogue.

Avon is one of rare companies with drugstore prices that came out with setting spray, so I had to see what are those all about. I still like the idea, but I have to admit that dissapointed me. It felt sticky on face and I looked so oily and greasy. Because of that I haven't used it a lot. But when I did, I didn't notice a lot of differece in terms of longevity of my makeup.

Eyeshadow base seem to be one of the best sellers. I don't use eyeshadow that often but when I do, I always use this base. It is creamy and it intensifies the color of eyeshadow. Also I really like packaging of this one.

When it comes to concelears I'm really picky and have pretty high standards. I don't reach for this one that often, but it is good for the price. Again so creamy and easy to blend. Shade I have is Fair and it is pretty light so I use it for as under eye concelear. Coverage is also pretty nice. The only problem I have is that it will sometimes (not always) settle in my lines.

Brushes are one of the most affordable out there. Most of them are duo fiber and I have angled one for contouring. I like that they're soft and well made, after couples months of using it all the bristles stayed in place. I'm not master in contouring, so I would sometimes even use this brush to apply powder.

I left hand cream for the end. This is the one with argan oil and it's not my favorite. It's really thick and I would say oily, and my hands won't absorb it for so long. I'm not able to touch anything for couple minutes. And I want to mention Chocolate one, even though I used it up. It is complete opposite from this one since consistancy is more like a lotion than a hand cream. It's super light, so read twice before choosing one from the range.
What do you think about this brand and what are you favorite products?

Posle svih kampanja koje su uradili, Avon groznica nije mogla ni mene da zaobidje. Ima nesto u listanju tih kataloga sto me cesto privuce da probam nesto novo, ali da li su moja ocekivanja zadovoljena kada dobijem proizvod?
Ponekada, ali za sada ostajem verna drogerijskim brendovima.
Iako ste mozda vec culi da ga hvalim, moram ponovo da spomenem Perfectly mat ruz. Veoma je kremast i lak za nanosenje, a da pritom ne isusuje usne preterano. Dugo traje, ali kao i vecina ruzeva nece preziveti jelo i pice. Ja imam nijansu Pure pink, koja je prava hladna, jarka roze nijansa. Idealna je za prolece i leto i potpuno je mat. Iako mi se dopada ova nijansa volela bih da vidim i neku prirodniju roze u ovoj kolekciji. Samo vodite racuna kada birate nijansu posto su veoma pigmentovane i jedan potez je dovoljan da se postigne nijansa iz kataloga.

Avon je jedan od retkih brendova sa drogerijskim cenama koji je izasao sa fiksatorom (sprejem) za sminku. Ideja ovakvog proizvoda mi se dopada, ali me je sam proizvod razocarao. Oseca se lepljivo na licu, i meni lice izgleda bas masno. Zato ga nisam cesto koristila, a i kada jesam nisam primetila razliku u trajanju sminke.

Baza za senku je takodje nesto sto ne vidjamo cesto kod drogerijskih brendova ali za razliku od fiksatora ona mi se dopala. Nije proizvod koji ce napraviti drasticnu razliku, ali senke mi izgledaju intenzivnije kada je koristim. I pakovanje mi se veoma dopada.

Kada je u pitanju korektor, moram da priznam da sam veoma izbirljiva i da imam visoke standarde. Za ovim ne posezem toliko cesto, zbog ostalih koje imam ali sasvim je solidan. Veoma je kremast i lako se blenda sa ostatkom sminke. Prekrivanje je takodje solidno. Zbog nijanse koju imam (Fair, koja je veoma svetla), uglavnom ga koristim za prekrivanje podocnjaka. Jedina losa stvar koja se ponekad (ne uvek) desi je da mi se uvuce u sitne linijice.

Cetkice mi se dopadaju. Bila sam veoma iznenadjena posto su jeftinije od vecine na nasem trzistu. Uglavnom su duo fiber i veoma su mekane. Iako nisam strucnjak za konturisanje izabrala sam ovu iskosenu, koja nije preterano gusta. S njom lako nanosim bronzer, ali mi se desi i da je ponekad koristim da nanesem puder. Koristim je vec nekoliko meseci i nijedna dlacica mi nije otpala, tako da je kvalitet za ovu cenu odlican!

I za kraj je ostala krema za ruke. Ova je sa arganovim uljem, i veoma je masna. Mojoj kozi treba dosta vremena da je upije, tako da nekoliko minuta ne mogu ni za sta da se uhvatim. Iako sam iskoristila kremu za ruke sa aromom cokolade moram da je pomenem, s obzirom da je potpuno suprotna ovoj. Ima veoma laganu teksturu, vise poput losiona nego kreme za ruke i nije mi pruzila dovoljnu hidrataciju. Tako da ukoliko ih porucujete obratite paznju na vrstu.
Sta vi koristite od Avon-a?

  1. Delimo simpatije prema bazi za senke. U principu koristim dosta Avon -ovih proizvoda, neki su prosecni a neki su sjajni, kao i kod ostalih brendova. Jako volim kremaste ruzeve iz Luxe linije, Krem za ruke od maticne mleci, sprej za sjaj (koji je u stvari, najbolji sprej za feniranje), blaznice sa glikolnom kiselinom za lice i pete i jos neke stvari
