New Contest! Sweat-proof makeup from Avon‏

 

Congrats to our winners: Marcy L, Rebecca and Jessica A.

As we’re obviously in the middle of the hottest, ickiest summer days, I thought it would be the perfect time to introduce you to Avon’s latest launch: the Extra Lasting Collection.

Comprised of Lipstick, Lipgloss, Eyeshadow, Mascara, Liquid Foundation, Eyeliner, Cream-to-Power Foundation, and Pressed Powder Foundation, the entire ling is long-lasting, ensuring your makeup stays put and looks good all day long.

 

The Technology: Every product in the Extra Lasting collection is formulated with the Comfort Wear Complex to help maintain the quality of wear. The multi-tasking formulas go above and beyond lasting color and coverage to offer additional benefits—Extra Lasting means makeup that doesn’t compromise.

The Extra Lasting collection includes:

Extra Lasting Lipstick ($9): Delivering long-lasting color for up to eight hours, this SPF 15 lipstick provides conditioning moisture for 12 hours, striking the ultimate balance between comfort and staying power.

Extra Lasting Lipgloss ($9): This shiny, moisturizing gloss wears comfortably for eight hours. It makes lips look glossy and luminous.

Extra Lasting Mascara ($9): Offering up to seven times the volume increase, this 18-hour mascara makes lashes look volumized. The ultra-comfortable lightweight formula is fade-, transfer-, smudge-, rub- and water-proof, formulated with patent-pending technology.

Extra Lasting Eyeshadow ($9): Experience nine-hour wear with this breakthrough shimmering, silky shadow.

Extra Lasting Eyeliner ($9): This lasting liner boasts a super-fine, firm yet flexible precise tip for maximum application control. The fade-proof, transfer-proof, smudge-proof formula delivers a high dose of pigment for optimal coverage and intense color.

Extra Lasting Liquid Foundation ($12): Get flawless, natural coverage for 18 hours with this longwearing liquid foundation. Pigments are coated with a protective shield to help protect them from water, sweat, and humidity that can break down color. Freshwear Complex helps maintain the quality of just-applied foundation as the formula’s stretchable, breathable network leaves skin feeling comfortable.

Extra Lasting Cream to Powder Foundation ($11): This SPF 15 foundation wears flawlessly and maintains a fresh appearance for 18 hours. Comfortable and lightweight, the lasting formula looks natural—never cakey, masky or heavy.

Extra Lasting Pressed Powder Foundation ($11): This makeup offers lightweight comfort, and it stays fresh and natural-looking for 18 hours. Mattifying powder controls oil so skin stays shine free. The foundation maintains finish all day.

Reese Witherspoon to launch three new fragrances!

Here we go again, another celebrity fragrance!

Reese Witherspoon, the ambassador for Avon, will soon be releasing three new fragrances under the brand!

“The fragrances capture my own personal philosophy on life. Their names — Laugh Often, Live Without Regrets and Love To The Fullest — these are all words I live by,” said Witherspoon.

Created to express the different moods of women, the Expressions collection will make its debut in April with Laugh Often’s mix of juicy mandarin and fragrant freesia. Live Without Regrets will follow in May with a warm weather-friendly floral fruity flavor, and Love To The Fullest will round out the series in August, with an oriental blend of amber, woods, plush peony and a hint of sweet black cherry.

A self-described “lover of fragrances,” Witherspoon said she jumped at the opportunity to create a trio of scents all at one time. The star credits the closest women in her life with endowing her with the passion to spritz.

“I remember my grandmother giving me the last bit of her perfume bottle, and pretending I was all grown up when I played with it. My mother also wore this beautiful gardenia perfume when we went on vacation. I always admired her, and thought she was the most beautiful woman in the world,” said Witherspoon.

Yet just like food palettes, fragrance preferences can change dramatically throughout a woman’s life. Chances are, the scent you doused in during your high school years is one that now repels you like opposite sides of a magnet.

Witherspoon revealed that she would buy anything and everything vanilla as a girl, but her preference has since shifted to white flowers sparked by citrus notes in recent years, a combination she happened upon while working with talented perfumers on her fragrance creations.

And, as in Hollywood, the outside packaging counts.

“I think it’s important how they look on your vanity. Fragrance is such an expression of being a woman,” said Witherspoon.

Fergie Gets Sexy for Her Debut Scent Outspoken

You still have to wait a couple months more to get a whiff of Fergie‘s first scent, Outspoken, but in the meantime, she’s releasing some steamy teaser shots from the fragrance’s upcoming ad campaign.

“From my music to my wardrobe, my style is all about speaking up and making a statement,” Fergie says of the scent’s overall concept in a release.

Outspoken definitely turns heads, but it also lets your true personality shine through.”

And when it came to the finishing touches, the singer got personal, topping the translucent black bottle with a cap inspired by the luxe decor of her bridal suite for her wedding to Josh Duhamel.

Launching in September 2010, the $28 Avon scent will mix notes of starfruit, tuberose, jasmine, and passion flower with black leather and smoky vetiver.
