Beauty Event: The Avon Beauty Bus
A couple of weeks ago, I was invited to pop by Avon’s latest event which showcased some of their Christmas and S/S16 range. And when they told me that it would be a bus, I was really intrigued and couldn’t wait to find out more.
AVON'S CHRISTMAS 2015 COLLECTION
I waddled towards Oxford Circus after work - and I literally waddled since everyone on Oxford Street doesn’t seem to be in a hurry to get anywhere. When I eventually found the Avon Beauty Bus, I was happy to see how lovely it was kitted out. Lots of pink balloons, sparkly Christmas baubles, twinkly fairy lights, a festive fireplace surrounded by stocking fillers, and lots of pretty make-up and beauty products dotted all over.
Avon did a great job in making it look pretty, and even though it was a small space, I thought it was less daunting than a fancy showroom. It had a cosy feel to it and I enjoyed looking around.
Liz Pugh, make-up artist for the celebs such as Alexa Chung and Adele, was there to give us a make-over or to show us how to use any of the make-up. The shimmer bronzers are beautiful as are the Perfectly Matte lipsticks - they're creamy and pigmented. It packs a punch and I know that's what you girls love in a lipstick. I prefer them slightly sheer but I'm partial to a rich, creamy lippy especially at this time of year (um, hello, get some colour on my pale skin right now please!)
On to skincare (now we're talkin'!). I was introduced to Avon's Nutra Effects which has three range; Balance (for combination/oily skin) Hydration (for normal/dry skin), Radiance (normal/combination skin) Ageless (for younger looking skin). There's something for everyone!
There was a nail artist at the event to give your hands and nails a bit of a pamper! There was a nice range of fashionable colours from blues to yellows, greens to purples. I also spotted a few sparkly nail polishes which Avon have called Liquid Sequin - which is very apt for this time of year!
If you’d like to know more about Avon’s Christmas range, hop over to their blog. I’ve written a low-down on top picks and I’d love for you to head over there and check it out. Keep your eyes peeled for the 12 Days Of Christmas Calendar - my fave Christmas item from Avon this year - it’s extremely cute!
