Haul | Pretty Pinks from Avon.

I paid a visit to the Avon outlet in our area the other day - something I usually do at least twice a month. And because there are a lot of great buys in this month's catalog, I didn't leave the store empty-handed.

Latest Avon haul.
Being an Avon Franchise Dealer (aka Avon lady) sure has its perks. For one, you get to try their latest products before they're made available to the public.

Strawberry and White Chocolate Lotion and Shower Gel.
The Strawberry and White Chocolate variant is the latest addition to the Avon Naturals line. They're also included in this month's Advanced Try Me Offers, giving FDs a chance to stock up on items before they appear on the next catalog. The lotion and shower gel are priced at Php 99 each or Php 189 if you get two. Next month, they'll be priced at Php 109 each or Php 199 for any two.

I'm a sucker for anything strawberry or chocolate, so I'm totally sold with this product. The lotion is lightweight, not sticky nor greasy, and gentle on the skin. Same goes for the shower gel, which doesn't leave the skin dry. I love the sweet, yummy scent most of all, and how it lingers on your skin for hours. (Quick tip: Layer your scent so they'll last longer on you! Use a shower gel, lotion, and - if possible - a perfume of the same product line.)

Avon Style Essentials - the logo and packaging is just so posh.
Another new item is the Colored Eyelash Curler, which is part of the revamped Avon Style Essentials line. The curler is currently on sale at Php 89 (actual price of Php 179), with any purchase of Avon Style or Simply Pretty product featured on the catalog. And that's the reason why those two items are pictured together. I bought that lip gloss just so I can get the eyelash curler.

Pretty in pink eyelash curler!
And I got that eyelash curler just because it's cute. It's made of steel and the handles are made of plastic. Nothing too exceptional about it, except the fact that they look pretty. Heck, even the box is reeking of prettiness.

Simply Pretty Shiny Liquid Lipgloss.
If you've noticed from my FOTD posts, I don't use lip gloss that much. Check my train case and you'll see that I own just one lip gloss, the MAC Clear Lip Gel. This Avon lip gloss now makes two.

Tangerine Sparkles.
I didn't even give much thought when I chose this color. I just chose the one which doesn't look too light or too dark, then headed straight for the checkout counter.  I'm not sure why, but I'm not really comfortable wearing lip gloss. They feel heavy and icky on my lips - like I'm wearing molasses or something.

And they call this tangerine.
Did this Php115 lip gloss made me think otherwise? Not really. I'd rather have the conventional lipstick, thank you very much.

Now another advantage of being an Avon FD is the discounts. (This is the profitable part of being an Avon lady. If you take this business opportunity seriously, it could be very lucrative.) That's less 25% on all purchases, including sale items. This haul barely cost me Php300. 

And the best part? It's on credit. I can pay for this next month! So if you're itching for some makeup fix but budget is tight, then Avon is the way to go. Just don't forget to settle your balance on or before the due date as there are penalties for late payments. Now lemme mark that on my planner. :)
