First Impressions / Get Ready With Me | New YouTube Video

This weeks beauty post/YouTube video is a 'Get Ready With Me' with a slight difference! I ordered a couple of new products from Avon, including two of their new release lipsticks, which I am super happy with, so I thought I would try them out on camera so I can give you my honest review and opinion straight away!

If you want a bit more information, as well as links to the products I bought then please scroll down past the video, otherwise sit back and relax and enjoy!

Here's a bit more information about the products I purchased from Avon:

:: Avon Ultra Colour Bold Lipstick
I saw these advertised in a magazine and heard great things about the quality, longevity of wear and colour pay-off so thought I would grab a couple whilst they were on offer (always one for a bargain!). They claim to be a rich and hydrating formula, so great for autumn/winter too. I picked up two pinky shades: 'Pink Punch' and 'Rapid Rose', as I thought they would go with most things, and I am not disappointed. Pink Punch is a brighter tone which will be great to brighten up an autumn outfit and will look stunning with more played-down eye make up and Rapid Rose is more of a creamy pink (and is the one I used in the video too!). The formula applies really nicely, even over dry patches of skin, and feels comfortable on your lips. The first time I wore the lipstick Joe and I were heading out for dinner and there was only slight wear, as I think you would expect, but overall I think these are fab!

:: Avon Luxe Eye Shadow Palette - Glamorous Roses
I have had my eye on this palette for a little while having been desperate for some more plum toned eye shadows for autumn. I finally bit the bullet and order the 'Glamorous Roses' palette as I thought all the shades would be wearable (they do six shade varieties in all). In the palette there are two matte shades, one highlight and two more shimmery shades, but, as I describe in the video above, I feel that the shimmer is more 'grown up' and easy to wear, rather than overly glittery and sparkly. The consistency is beautiful and allows you to really layer up and build colour on your lids, the shadows also blend really well. As you will see in the video I decided on quite a smoky eye look but you would have no trouble achieving a more 'every day' look with the shades in this selection too; the taupe brown is very wearable and would look lovely during the day with a tiny bit of the lighter plum through the socket. Great palette!

:: Avon Glimmerstick Brow Definer - Blonde
I got a glimmerstick for brows free in a magazine once in the shade 'Dark Brown' and loved the formula, although the shade was way too dark for me, so thought I would try the blonde shade, which seems perfect. The consistency is waxy, which lasts well on my brown, and it applies well. I am very impressed with this product considering the price point is under £5.00. I would recommend giving it a go - just be aware that if your brows are very light there may be a shade issue as even the blonde is more of a lighter brown.

Have you got any Avon products that you would recommend? Let me know in the comments!
