New Jillian Dempsey for Avon Pallettes

Let’s face it: makeup trends come and go. But the one constant is that we all want to simplify our makeup routine, yet still look ravishing and red carpet-ready. With that in mind, Jillian Dempsey has created a Professional Perfect Eyes Kit and Perfect Contour Powder Palettes for Avon, so women everywhere can achieve a flawlessly fabulous face without the fuss.

A Sexy, Smoky Eye, Simplified
Pro-Perfect Eyes:

Who doesn’t dream of creating the perfect smoky eye look? This wonder palette makes a sultry, smoky eye simple to achieve, thanks to its four shades that perfectly complement one another to highlight, accent and line eyes with foolproof application. “My new eye palette from Avon actually separates the colors into sections that mimic the shape of an eye, so you know exactly where to apply each color,” explains Jillian.

Now available in 4 shades: Deep Purple, Cinnamon, Smokey, and Aqua.

 

Face-Time
Pro-Perfect Contour Powder:
When it comes to makeup, they say less is always more. Who wants to apply layer upon layer of bronzer, blush and highlighter, only to end up with a cakey complexion that’s far from natural-looking. With this convenient compact, your routine is supremely simplified. Featuring bronzer, blush and highlighter that you can pick up with one smooth swipe of a brush, this compact makes it easy to add dimension for professional, sculpted cheeks every day.

Available April 2012 in 2 shades: Angelic and Blissful

Jillian Dempsey for Avon Professional Eye Smokifier.

The Professional Eye Smokifier makes a dark smoky eye so easy to create. It’s much easier than a liquid or gel liner the smooth sponge tip is easy to handle and the softer look means no stressing over a perfect line. I tried the Very Black I love how dark it is and the little silver sparkles, definitely makes your eyes pop.

Mascara Review: 2 to SKIP – 1 to KEEP!

I was at the store last weekend, where I saw there was a sale on Rimmel London mascaras. Buy one get one free! Who could pass that up? Not me! So I grabbed two mascaras that I thought I’d like to try.

So I sit down, put all my other makeup on (foundation, eyeshadow, etc.) and I pull out Max Volume Flash, my new mascara. I pull the wand out of the tube – and immediately I HATE IT. It pulled out a TON of mascara, and the brush was all gooped up with black mascara. I scraped it off, and tried to put it on, and I swear I hated it in two strokes. It’s awful. It doesn’t do a darn thing that it says it will. I’ve tried a lot of mascaras, and this one might be one of the worst. Look at that packaging! 14X volume! Fast – no mess lashes! Collagen and Keratin enriched! Their biggest brush ever! Psht. No good. I put the lid back on – and tossed it in the trash.

Then I decide to open the next mascara I bought, Glam’Eyes. I should have known I wouldn’t like it just by looking at the wand. I hate small brushes. I like a nice – thick brush. But I decided to try it anyway, and I didn’t like it at all. Again, everything it promises on the packaging is complete BS. Talk about false advertising! It’s practically the same exact mascara as Max Volume Flash – just in a different tube. Definitely NOT worth my money, and I won’t be trying any more Rimmel mascaras any time soon. I know Erin has tried one that she likes – but I’d definitely tell you guys to skip these two. They’re no good.

So I can’t leave you with all bad news, can I? How about 1 mascara I think you SHOULD try?

I’m absolutely in love with L’Oreal’s Millions of Lashes! I have looooong struggled with drugstore mascaras, because in my opinion, they can’t stand up to some of the more expensive versions like Diorshow. Aaaand then I tried L’Oreal’s Voluminous Million Lashes. It was love at first stroke.

I adore this mascara. For only $8, you’re getting what you could get for $30+ on a more expensive brand. It goes on smoothly, it isn’t clumpy, the brush is fantastic, it doesn’t flake, it actually DOES make your lashes look longer and fuller. In my opinion, it’s one of the few drugstore mascaras that actually live up to the hype. If you’re looking for a new mascara to try – try this guy. You won’t be sorry!
