This month I got to meet some very creative Avon Representatives--four winners of a national Makeup Maven contest to find talented makeup artist who make the brand shine. The winners got flown to NYC to for media training a s tour of the city. On the last day of their trip the mavens met up with some Avon Blog Ambassadors in NYC for fashion week. I joined fellow Avon Blog Ambassadors Amber, Aly and Kimmie at the Double Tree hotel in Times Square for a fun lunch with the winners.
We sat down to dine and chat with the four Avon Representatives who won an internal Makeup Maven contest by posting an instructive video. Check out the 4 Regional winners - Lisa, Shannon, Kana and Rebecca - here: http://www.youtube.com/avonmakeupmaven
The winners shared their favorite avon products (they all swear by the Glimmersticks--the #1 selling eye liner in America) and how they built a business. It was fascinating to hear these motivated ladies share their love of the brand and I admire the dedication to their customers.
Now as for me, what am I loving from Avon this month? I've got two things to share. First the MagiX Cashmere Advanced liquid Foundation ($12). I love the touch of luminosity in the formula. I feel like my skin has the winter blahs. Check out the color options:
This foundation isn't about thick makeup that just weighs down your look. It sits so lightly on the skin, giving a hint of coverage plus SPF 15. It's the perfect skin brightener. When I combine this with the ANEW Clinical Absolute Even Multi-Tone Skin Corrector I felt ready for this last month of cold, dreary weather. The skin corrector battles spots, blothces, post scne marks, freckles and sallow skin ($39.99). Use it day and night for best results.
I'm proud to be a paid blog ambassador for Avon. Each month they send me goodies to sample--without a script. I get to experiment on my own and share my opinions.
