[PART 2 - FOUNDATION + BASICS] FEAT. AVON LUXE SILKEN FOUNDATION, CREME LIP GLOSS + VOLUME EXTRAVAGANCE MASCARA REVIEW + SWATCHES!


[ PRESS PLAY + ENJOY ] 


Featuring my little snippet of Avon's new LUXE cosmetic range. 





HEY EVERYONE! 

Welcome to Part 2, featuring Avon Luxe's new cosmetic range - Silken Foundation, Lip gloss and Volume Extravagance Mascara. 

If you guys missed out on Part 1 - featuring Avon Luxe's lipsticks, catch up on it here. So just to recap a little about Avon LUXE, it's a brand that offers a cosmetic range that's super affordable and has a little touch of luxury to it. Most importantly, the ingredients contained within each product have been either infused with silk or black diamond powder. 

In this particular post, you'll get a sneak peek into their mascara also known as their Volume Extravagance Mascara, Lip Gloss (that's infused with silk) and lastly their Silken Foundation that is also infused with silk and white sapphire extract. All three products are ideal for a day or night wear look and I'm quite happy about these because they were comfortable to wear and most importantly, they did not feel heavy whatsoever. 

I do hope you enjoy the read and be sure to keep a look out for Part 3 - which will be the final part to my Avon LUXE adventures. 

Avon Luxe Volume Extravagance Mascara in Caviar Black 

VOLUME EXTRAVAGANCE MASCARA - AVON LUXE - IN SHADE CAVIAR BLACK

Looking for volumized looking lashes? You will definitely fall in love with this mascara by Avon LUXE. It contains black diamond powder and silk as well which all help to create ultra-dark looking lashes that look bold and thick. The pigmentation on this mascara is definitely amazing because as you can see from the swatch above, it shows an intense black shade within just one swipe. Amazing right? This mascara certainly lives up to my expectations of a volumizing and dramatic type of mascara for the lashes and it maximises the length of it too. The product comes in 7ml and of a gold packaging that looks luxury and so appealing. 

In terms of its formula, it really works for looking to lengthening the lashes by adding more volume to it. You can achieve longer looking lashes within one coat of mascara which means you can actually use the product for longer than a few months I'd say. When it comes to the longevity wear of this mascara, it does not show any signs of flaking which is amazing and this will last the whole day (of at least over 12 hours).

When looking to remove the mascara, I faced no issues at all - it was as simple as removing it with an eye make-up remover. Another positive thing I found about the mascara has to be about the brush. The brush itself comes in a nice, subtle curved brush that looks to coat each individual lash consistently and well. I am really impressed with the brush as that's the main driving factor in helping to coat your lashes really well with the mascara.

COUTURE CREME LIP GLOSS BY AVON LUXE (DAZZLING NUDE)

So Avon Luxe also offers a deluxe line of lip glosses. You can never own too much lip glosses! This particular lip gloss offers a a nice amount of colour to the lips along with making them look super shiny. The formula includes silk which is what essentially makes the formula glossy and shiny. The shade I tried is called Dazzling Nude and it has shimmery particles in it which is what makes it stand out when applied onto the lips. The colour has a warm undertone to it and still looks quite nude on the lips which I quite personally like. Each lip gloss product comes in 4.5ml.

The formula feels really nice when worn onto the lips and is not even sticky. There's a light scent but it's not so strong that you cannot stand it. If anything, it's certainly bearable and the staying power of this lip gloss is amazing. 

WHERE TO PURCHASE:
  • RRP $14.95 AUD 
  • Can be purchased via Avon's official website here.

SILKEN FOUNDATION BY AVON LUXE

WOW! This Silken Foundation by Avon LUXE is definitely a must try because it feels very moisturising on the skin as it has been infused with silk and white sapphire extract for a flawless and soft make-up finish. When applied onto the skin, this foundation feels so comfortable and not heavy at all. There are 5 shades available being Porcelain, Nudie Bodice, Beige Linen, Natural Glamour and Medium Bisque. Each of the foundation bottles (30ml) are presented in a luxury glass pump with an attractive gold lid. It's so easy to dispense foundation and this is definitely hygienic in the long-run when looking to use a foundation type. The formula also includes SPF20+ to it which means it's perfect for every day wear if you happen to be outdoors for some time. 

Coverage of using this foundation goes well on the skin and it does last for the whole day. The overall finish has to be matte and this is ideal for me because I have oily to combination skin so therefore it doesn't leave an oily finish to my face. The wear does not feel heavy as well which makes it a fabulous option to go for should you be wanting to rock a long-wearing foundation at night. 

Overall, I love how moisturising this foundation feels and looks on my skin. I am amazed by its formula where it contains silk and sapphire white extract and I guess this is what helps to deliver a long-lasting and moisturising coverage to your overall look. I would definitely would recommend you to try this foundation out if you're looking for a matte and super moisturising finish.  

WHERE TO PURCHASE:
  • RRP $50.00 AUD 
  • Can be purchased via Avon's official website here.
