Vivid violet

The ultra colour bold lipsticks are my favourite from the Avon range of lipsticks,they are affordable and really good quality. At the moment I am loving the vivid violet shade ,which is a lovely warm purple colour. It is very pigmented and the texture is quite creamy. It is long lasting and feels really moisturising .

Avon Ultra Glazewear Absolute Renewing Rose Lipstick

This produced can be purchased through Avon representatives.

This lipstick is a light pink colour which means it is a nice and soft colour.

I actually wear this lipstick a lot.

It doesn't dry out your lips and is actually quite moisturizing, leaving you with a soft and silky look.

A must have in your lipstick collection.

Ruby shock

I love this lipstick ,it's rich and creamy and feels lightweight on my lips .my favorite shade is 'ruby shock' ,which is as bold as it was intended to be! The color itself is more of a pinkish red but it's very pigmented, which I love because I don't want to swipe over and over. I find that after several hours I still have it on, maybe just a tad bit faded but who cares. A great one from Avon.

Avon Ultra Colour Bold Lipstick #AvonDare

I received a chocolate brown colour, i did dare but eish it did not suit me at all. My lips looked like i was smoking some kush or cigars maybe another color, I honestly think it suits light toned skin people.

Good color for winter too

Avon #DareToBe

Avon Ultra Colour bold lipstick in 'Berry Bold' : dare to be Berry Bold. This lippy will take you from drab to fab in 3.6 seconds. Fluid, moisturising application adds to its boldness. A lovely summer shade for anyone willing to step out of the norm.

Avon Big & Daring volume mascara in 'Brown / Black' : a curved applicator awaits inside, providing big and daring results. Long lasting results, which tends itself towards the darker side of brown / black.

Avon Bare Impact lipstick and Avon Big & Daring Volume Mascara

LOVE the mascara! It is absolutely amazing - doesn't smudge and gives a lot of volume! I received the black/brown mascara (have never tried a brown mascara before) and it looks amazing. For me it is primarily a day mascara, as it is not as pitch black as the mascara I prefer for night time use. Very easy to apply and dries quickly. A bit trick to get off using just face wash, but make up remover does the trick.

The lipstick (Avon Bare Impact) is nice and soft on the lips, but it doesn't last very long. While I usually prefer a nude colour for my lips, I actually felt this one was a bit too dull; it had no shimmer or shine.

Both products are nice, but I think I would prefer a different shade of lipstick.

Startburst pink! :)

Even though the colour was very bright and light for me, i still enjoyed testing and trying out this fantastic lipstick. It went on matte and stayed the entire day! it is soft and so easy to apply and the colour was great, one application gave you full coverage! I would normally never wear this shade or even give it a second look, its quite a barbie pink and I really enjoyed reviewing it :) Thank you Avon and BB for pushing me past my comfort zone and into the world of Dare to Be!!!! Would love to explore the other shades too!

my Avon daring bold look

I loved the colour I suited me , I was a bit sceptical at first but everyone in the office complimented me. It felt soft , and i kept my lips moisturised for the whole day. The big daring mascara is amazing I can't leave the house without putting it on me. I have nice eye lashes and it made them appear longer and fuller. Thank you BB team and Avon these were the best gifts for me . Santa came early for me

#AvonDareToBe Ultra Colour Bold Lipstick - Rapid Rose
#Avon Big & Daring Volume Mascara

I'm so happy to review this Avon Lipstick ...This is one of the product that was in the goodie bag we got at the #AvonDareToBe event last month.
I love the colour however it was definitely to bright for me but have worn it to see if I would get use to the colour. It doesn't smudge, it give that beautiful shine to your lips.

I love the Mascara which added volume to my eyelashes and makes a difference and looks bold and daring.
Thank you

Ultra Bold

I was fortunate enough to be chosen to review the Avon Ultra Colour Bold lipstick in bare impact however as huge a fan as I am of Avon lipsticks this particular lippie was not my favourite as far as quality and effectiveness go I give it a full rating the only issue was the colour very bare hence the name and due to its effectiveness it did not seem to want to come off I did however find it drying so I was not overly keen on this lippie

A Punch of Pink

I am obsessed with this lipstick! I haven't been wearing lipsticks lately, because I just feel like non of them last and I have to reapply all the time PLUS I often find mat lipsticks to be drying, so I was so surprised to find that this is not at all the case with this lipstick. One coat gives amazing color, it stayed on my lips for hours and I love the creamy, vivid, mat color minus the drying effect! Get it!

DARE TO BE BOLD

I received the Avon Ultra Colour Bold Lipstick in BERRY BOLD and the Big and Daring Volume Mascara in black-brown from beauty bulletin.

The berry bold lipstick is super moist and shiny when applied. It suited me well and i love it.the creamy texture allows for it to glide on smoothly .I expected it to look darker on my lips but it was a lighter shade then the applicator.

The black-brown mascara adds volume without clumping. The curved wand makes it easy to apply. It coats each eyelash evenly as well as darkens and lengthens my eyelashes.

Avon - Dare to be Bold Lipstick and Mascara

Of course I was ecstatic when I received that mail informing me that I’m one of the fortunate few to try out and review yet another good product by Avon. I have been given the below 2 products to review:
1. Avon Ultra Bold Colour Lipstick – Rapid Rose
2. Avon Big Daring Mascara - Black

Packaging:
1. The exterior of the lipstick is just as good as the interior. I immediately tested the opening of the cap and the twist functionality of the applicator. I also like the black and silver packaging that gives it a more sophisticated and bold appeal.
2. I enjoy the packaging of the Big Daring mascara as it makes for a good grip. The applicator brush also is the correct type and size to add maximum benefit in ensuring bold, daring eyelashes.

Feel:
1. The application of the lipstick is very smooth and because the colour is so bold and intense, minimal effort and less application is required to get an even spread on the lips.
2. At first it was good and coated the eyelashes well, until I felt that it dried out and a second application is needed for it to not feel dry and flake.

Lasting:
1. The lipstick is not matt, neither is it a high gloss - which is the perfect balance that you want from a lipstick that is this bold. The last thing you want is for it to be too glossy and it ends up looking tacky or for it to be too matt and you still have the reminiscence of it on your lips for 3 days to come! That ends up also looking tacky. I personally use softer nudes and more natural colours and mainly matt colours with a bit of gloss on sometimes, however this is a great switch up for the Spring/Summer. I applied in the morning and it lasted the whole day. Pretty sure it’ll last the whole of Spring and Summer too.
2. When I applied the mascara, the lasting effect seemed to have been great, until I noticed that later on during the day it started to flake off. This is weird to me because I know that lipstick and other makeup may need to be applied more than twice a day in cases, but I’ve never done it for mascara. It’s like it almost got dry and I felt that it was drying out my eyelashes too. ?

Tips:
1. I dabbed a finger over my lips and blended it into the area of my cheek bones that’s close to my hairline.
2. Apply over the top of the eyelashes first and then from the underneath in an upward motion to get a more even coating and bigger daring curl effect. This will need to be done twice a day due to the drying nature of the mascara.

Even though the lipstick colour doesn't fully suit my skin tone, I decided to continue using it with a darker Avon gloss over. It adds a bit of daring and boldness to my Spring/Summer look :)A little bit definitely goes a long way here!

xoxo

Avon Big and Daring Volume Mascara in BROWN/BLACK (10ml)

Packaging:
Boxed in simple packaging, in black and bright cerise pink. The mascara is a lot larger than expected, the wand is encased in a shiny black container with silver trim. The mascara closes with an audible click so you know that it’s securely shut. This helps prevent it drying out, which I think is a definite plus.
I particularly like the handle of the wand as it’s almost rectangular/pyramid shaped, which allows for a firmer grip.
The large bristled wand is a definite bonus as the bristles are shaped to separate lashes and build volume. It is also curved to adapt to lashes and give it more shape.
The mascara goes on with ease and is immediately effective in coating the lashes and separating them. The brush is a bit large for shorter (bottom) lashes, so a bit more care is needed. I prefer a shorter bristle brush for bottom lashes.

I didn’t experience any clumping, which was a real pleasure. I would recommend two coats for fuller lashes and no drying time between applications as I found that my lashes got very “stick”-like and trying to apply mascara to dry lashes, just ended up pulling them.

My lashes were so stiff after application that it really felt a bit uncomfortable at first, but the results were outstanding.

The before and after photos are a clear indication of how effective the mascara can be.
Washing the mascara off my lashes proved a bit of a challenge. It was incredibly difficult to remove (I guess that’s a bonus if you’re a crier, LOL!), but really frustrating when you’re in a hurry. I found wetting my lashes and allowing them to soak a while before washing with soap as the most effective method in removing it completely. I usually get rid of the residual raccoon eyes with a bit of moisturiser.
I’m not sure if I’d purchase this for day-to-day wear, but it certainly is a winner for active folk who don’t like a mascara that smudges due to humidity. I used it on stage and it stayed put for hours. So, I’d give it a thumbs-up for staying-power, but only if you like hard lashes.
BONUS: It’s fragrance free! ? no nasty smells.
Thank you, Beauty Bulletin for giving me this wonderful opportunity to try two of Avon’s latest gems. I really appreciate it!

Avon Ultra Colour Bold Lipstick in BERRY BOLD

As part of the Avon Dare to Be Bold review group, I received my Avon Ultra Colour Bold Lipstick in BERRY BOLD and the Avon Big and Daring Volume Mascara in BROWN/BLACK.

In order to give a fair account of the products, I will be a bit more thorough in my review and give a somewhat tedious amount of detail so that you can make an informed decision about whether this product is suitable for you or not.

Avon Ultra Colour Bold Lipstick in Berry Bold:
As the name suggests, Berry Bold is indeed bold and such a pretty colour. It’s warm, rich colour is very appealing (it’s the shade I’d usually favour for nail polish). After application, I thought that it was way too “loud” on my skin as I’m quite fair and the colour was a bit too bold for my taste, but I decided to be daring as this was my opportunity to experiment. Besides, I was heading out for a gig and it is the norm to wear heavy, darker makeup on stage because of the lighting, otherwise you can look a bit washed-out.

The lipstick glides on smoothly, is really moist and creamy and is colour-true. It looks on the lips exactly like it does in the applicator. This was a bonus, as I often find that the colour of the wand is not the same when applied to my lips. I guess it really depends on the natural colour of your lips, but I like it when the colour I use, is the same on my lips as is presented. Working in an air-conditioned office, I find my lips tend to be dry, so this moist lipstick was a welcome relief as some lipsticks tend to dry my lips even more.

Unfortunately, because of its rich texture, the lipstick does bleed a bit, so I had to apply a lip liner to keep it in place, but that’s a small price to pay for a pretty colour that stays moist. Because it’s pigment-rich, I found it had great staying-power and I didn’t need to reapply during the evening. Having said that, I didn’t have anything to eat, just to drink. However, when dining out, the colour doesn’t stick quite as well, but the level of coverage is still good and a light touch-up is all that’s required. All in all, I’d give this lipstick a 10/10 as it really does deliver what it promises.

Packaging:
Boxed in simple, yet stylish packaging, in black and bright cerise pink. The lipstick itself, is encased in a shiny black container with silver trim, which makes it a stylish item for your handbag. The action of the mechanism to turn the lipstick in and out, is smooth and the cap clicks in place when closed. I particularly like this feature and the sturdiness of the lipstick casing as some of my other lipsticks have on occasion lost their caps in my handbag because they weren’t closed securely or cracked due to inferior material and craftsmanship. It is clear that Avon has given a lot of attention to detail to making not only the inside of the product special, but also designing the container in which it is packaged.

Bonus: No nasty fragrance (some lipsticks tend to stink, in my opinion.)

Avon Ultra Colour Lipstick and Big & Daring Volume Mascara

I Was lucky enough to be selected to review the Avon Ultra Colour Lipstick and Big & Daring Volume Mascara.

The lipstick colour I received was Coral Burst. It has a soft creamy texture, even though it's a matte lipstick so my lips didn't dry out. It was quite long lasting and didn't transfer onto the glass that I was drinking, which I thought was absolutely fantastic. The colour itself is very bold. It's a mix of orange and bright red. Surprisingly it seemed to work. I applied a light coat of the lipstick and I outlined my lips with a deep red (almost maroonish) lipliner and I blended the two. So I was quite happy with the end result. The deep red seemed to even out the brightness of the shade and the end result was perfect. This one is definitely a keeper and a great addition to my HUGE lipstick collection. They are also quite reasonably priced so I would highly recommend anyone to try this range. A big thumbs up and 5 stars from me for this lipstick.

The Big & Daring Volume Mascara was a bit disappointing. It doesn't quite live up to its name. I had to apply two coats to get the desired big and bold effect. After applying two coats, my lashes felt heavy- not a very nice feeling. The brush was uncomfortable to use, because of its curved shape. I would have preferred the brush to be straight and the bristles wider - perhaps that would have given the bold look. The mascara scores 2 stars from me.

Thank you Beauty Bulletin for the opportunity to review these great products, and adding to my makeup collection.

Avon Ultra Colour Lipstick Max Mocha


I received the Max Mocha. I love this lipstick, amazing colour. It is light and has a creamy texture.
Long lasting colour that doesn’t fade. It looks very expensive and I love the packaging. I am not afraid
to be different and unique. I will most definitely try the bold colours such as the reds. I feel very
confident and sexy. It is also very good value for your money. Would definitely recommend to anyone
to go and buy it and try if for yourself, you won’t be sorry. Avon Ultra Colour Lipstick here I come.
Bold and Beautiful, bringing out the Star in Me.

I loved the Ruby shock lipstick I was given to review. The colour is rich, deep and has a fantastic impact. The mascara was a bit disappointing and didn't really deliver great results for me. Will highly recommend the lipstick.

Avon dare to be Bold!!

I received the Avon Ultra Colour Bold Lipstick in Pink Punch and Big and Daring Volume Mascara in Brown / Black.

My first reaction was that I loved the simple sleek design of the packaging of both products.

I don’t mind exploring and introducing new products and colour into my simple make up routine. So, when I received the Avon Ultra Colour Bold Lipstick in Pink Punch, I was delighted to give it a go!

Avon Ultra Colour Bold Lipstick in Pink Punch
Love: It is ultra-moisturising with no need to apply lip balm prior to applying lipstick.It is long lasting therefore perfect if you don’t have the time to reapply lipstick all day long (like me). I once applied it before 8am and by 10am after 2 cups of coffee and cereal there was still a pink colour to my lips. Adds a pop of colour to your face therefore the rest of your make up can be simple. The pink makes my eye colour brighter. The price – at R69.95 it is a bargain!!
Loathe: Nothing. Seriously!

Big and Daring Volume Mascara in Brown / Black
Love: Lengthens my eyelashes
The price – at R64.95 it is a bargain!!
Loathe: The size of the brush. I struggled to apply the mascara properly.
You must apply more than one coat to get the desired effect.
It gets clumpy very quickly.
It does not come off easily!
When applied with another mascara I eventually got the desired effect i.e. long and thick lashes.

My overall thoughts:

Both products are reasonably priced and I will definitely be checking out the other colours in the lip colour range. I got my eye on vivid violet!

Thank you, Beauty Bulletin for this exciting opportunity!

Ultra Colour Bold Lipstick

I got the Bare Impact shade lipstick and the black Mascara as part of the Avon Dare to Be "club".

Lipstick:
I went for a photoshoot seven years ago, and the makeup artist applied a lipstick that looked very natural. Ever since then, I have been searching for something similar and I finally found it in Avon's Bare Impact lipstick! I was so excited. I love the colour; however, it doesn't last. I have been wearing it for three hours and it's diminishing already. But I must say, I have had something to drink and it has stayed put. For the price I would however definitely buy this product.

Mascara:
I'm not a big fan of the mascara. It seems clumpy, even though it doesn't look like that in the photo I've uploaded. It does what it says, though...it really does last long before it starts to flake. The bottle has a nice shape and the wand is easy to handle, but I probably wouldn't use this again. I am also not in love with the brush - it seems a bit bulky to me.

Avon Ultra colour bold lipstick in Max Mocha

This is a super pigmented lipstick, with 50 % more pigments. Avon promises a brilliant, vibrant and intense colour in just one application, which I agree, just one coat of this lippie is more than enough. What I love about this lipstick is it is not drying at all. It also comes in 10 vibrant colours, I would have loved to try the coral burst and pink punch, since I have become obsessed with bright lippies recently. As for the colour I received Max Mocha, I couldn't really make it work on most occasions. A brown lipstick, I just couldn't. One night surprisingly it worked with a harsh dramatic eye and a pulled back pony, but after that it never worked again. Sigh... This is the colour swatched, just one coat and look at the colour payoff!

Avon Big and Daring Mascara (Black)



This is a super black pigmented mascara. I tried it with both one and two coats. I found two coats was a bit too fake for me, but one was amazing. Darkening of lashes, lengthening and volumising. False lash effect without the glue. I found the curved brush a bit messy, and required quite a bit of clean up. But it did add an extra flare and curl to my lashes. The dynamite brush is a curved brush that is meant to capture every lash to create explosive clump free volume. The wedge shaped bristles also capture every lash for explosive 360 degree volume. My lashes were well separated, and I am definitely pleased with this!

Avon claims the mascara wont smudge or flake for up to 24 hours and it can resist heat and humidity, which means it will be great for summer. It is available in black and brown black. I definitely agree with the smudge and flake free, this mascara has staying power. I have never worn mascara for 24 hours, and I don't think anyone ever would need, but a good 12 hours for sure!

The first picture my left side has no mascara, and my right has two coats. The second picture my left has one coat and my right has two.

Avon Dare to be Bold Lipstick and Mascara (black)

Avon Dare to be Bold Lipstick in Starburst Pink:
So generally I am not a bold gal, but I thought I would give it a try ... When I first saw the colour I was a bit "oops, not quite me". I tried and found it to be bold okay! I have tried the Starburst Pink on its own for daytime (with very minimal other make-up) and found it okay (in terms of colour), perhaps too bold for my personality. However I have also mixed it up a bit and put one coat of Starburst Pink on my top lip and used a sheer type lipgloss for my bottom lip - NOW THAT EFFECT I LOVED! As regards the quality, it is probably one of the better lipsticks I have used - not too thick, I found it stays on nicely and best of all I didn't find the smell to be offensive! Would definitely recommend it to all the lipstick lovers out there, however for me personally I like my toned down version better. (Pic included is of full on bold lipstick.)

Avon Dare to be Bold Mascara in black:
WOW WOW WOW now this I absolutely loved!!! And am definitely converting! I love the brush, I love that it is not clumpy, I love that it is stay fast - definitely waterproof if you ask me and sticks! I have naturally dark and full lashes but this mascara just ups the ante a bit and I have found that if I apply it early in the morning the effect stays until late at night! HIGHLY RECOMMEND this product!

Avon Dare to Be Bold Lipstick

So, Avon is going bold and it's just time for Spring! How exciting? I received the Avon Lipstick in shade Starburst Pink to review and I have to admit, the shade really scared me. I really didn't like the strange, palish looking pink shade, but I tried the lipstick. I loved the formula, it's easy to apply and it's not drying at all - despite being a matte shade. I was really impressed with the formula that I decided to try two more shades in the range - Pink Punch and Bright Nectar.

And these two colours really made me fall in love with the range! I love bright and bold colours and these two colours are exactly that - bright and bold. It didn't dry out my pout and lasted all days on my lips. I loved the statement I made with bright lips. I loved matching my outfits to my lipstick and I loved how confident my lipstick made me feel.

I loved it so much that I convinced a few of my colleagues to buy the the two shades as well - and guess what? They loved it too.

I will definitely try out more shades in this range.

Avon Dare to be Bold: Lipstick + Mascara

Avon Ultra Colour Bold Lipstick

Avon ultra colour bold lipstick comes in ten beautiful shades. The lipstick shade I will be talking about is called pink punch. Pink punch is a refreshing, vibrant shade. I really like the shade/colour. It is suitable for many seasons especially for the upcoming summer. The formula is pigmented, as you will notice after the first application that the lipstick colour comes off nicely on your lips. However, the lipstick is not full coverage. If you look closely a little bit of your natural lip colour is visible. The formula is buildable though and the more layers you apply on your lips the better the coverage. The lipstick is a little bit moisturizing. However, if worn for a long period of time I have notice that it made my lip a bit dryer.

Verdict: I think you should definitely give Avon ultra colour bold lipstick a try. The regular price of these lipsticks are R139.95 each.




Avon Big & Daring Volume Mascara

This mascara comes in two shades, black and brown black. I would like to point out that I have not experimented with many mascaras. In fact I think this is the first mascara I have tried. The mascara I have tried is in black shade. The wand is a medium size and it has a curve shape. The shape of the wand is a nice guidance when applying mascara. However, the wand size does get the product on my eyelid or nose, If not applied carefully.

In terms of the formula, it is amazing! With just one coat you will notice a difference. Your eyelashes will look fuller and longer. Also, avon states that this mascara won't smudge or flake for up to 24 hours, and it can resist heat and humidity. I have not worn this mascara for 24 hours but the time frame that I have worn this mascara, It has definitely not smudged or flaked. By the way, this mascara is really easy to remove.

Verdict: If you are looking for a mascara that gives you length, does not smudge or flake and is easy to remove avon big & daring volume mascara is for you. Just be careful with the wand. The regular price of this mascara is R129.95 each.

Avon Dare to be Lipstick in Berry Bold and Big daring volume mascara in Brown/black

When I first found out that Irina Shayk would be the new brand ambassador for avon I could not contain myself. Apart from being exceedingly beautiful, her makeup and clothes are always on point.

I received the Avon dare to be lipstick in the shade BERRY BOLD. The colour is vibrant, bright and intense. It really does brighten up your face and does give you the added boost of confidence. The colour you see in the brochure is the exact colour that you will get on your lips upon application. Highly pigmented. Highly moisturising. High shine. Definitely living up to its expectations in that regard.

The packaging is neat, modest, nothing too fancy. I'd have no qualms whipping this out of my handbag if I needed to reapply.

What I did not love about this lipstick was that it was a bit too creamy.
Due to its extra creamy texture, it tends to bleed a lot, especially on to my teeth and Chin.

This unfortunately was a deal breaker for me. As beautiful as the colour is, I had to to constantly be looking into a mirror to ensure that no lipstick had bled into my teeth or on to the sides of me mouth.

Will I purchase this lipstick? I highly doubt it. But i do believe that for R69,95 you are getting your money's worth.


The Avon Big and Daring Volume Mascara - now this product I LOVE. You notice a difference upon initial application. The spoolie coats the lashes really well , separating the lashes as it goes along. My lashes look longer and thicker.
The best way to apply it is whilst sitting near a fan or a window, and wait for the prior coat to dry before you apply the next to ensure minimal clumping . This way your mascara just builds on to your lashes giving it a more natural finish.

The packaging is similar to the lipstick's. It's modest, modern and neat.

I will definitely be adding this mascara to my list of favourites. For its price of R64,95 I'd consider this a bargain.

Bodacious Avon #AvonDareToBe Color Bold Lipstick in Coral Burst and Daring Volume Mascara Black

With big brand giants such as Christian Dior ,Bobby Brown , Estee Lauder ,Mac , one cant help but wonder how does Avon fare in comparison with the leading cosmetic brands in the makeup industry ? With Avon being cost effective what does that mean for the quality and effectiveness of their makeup ? When I heard about Avon's new Colour Bold range I did not do the dance of joy especially upon reading the names of the lipsticks , it was quite worrying especially if you so used to routine with makeup you become hesitant to try new things.But I was in for a pleasant surprise .....

I received Colour Bold Lipstick in Coral Burst and the Daring Volume Mascara in black.When I saw the colour of the lipstick I cringed!It looked orange to me!!And so I tried it on .... It looked incredible and felt more hydrating than my Labello!I like that this lipstick is super opaque, highly pigmented and that just one swipe could give you a rich, colourful swatch.The same "bold" rich colour you see on the lipstick is the same "bold" colour you see on your lips!Although its a matte lipstick it provides adequate moisture and does not crease into the fine lip lines.I used a chocolate brown lipliner from Charlie to neaten the edges and it really looked incredible
So Avon took a "bold" step ahead in the colour industry as True Colour Technology is definitely achieved in this lipstick.
I am not a fan of mascara sadly to say , and Avons mascara reminded me why!I admit I liked the curved brush to make application easy for mascara virgins , but alas the formula made my eyelashes feel like I had used a dose of cement , I was displeased with the stiffening effect this had on my lashes not to mention the irritation it caused my eyes as you see in the pictures , I am also having a difficult time removing it , thumbs down for the mascara!
Both products can be purchased online (www.avon.co.za) or from an Avon Representative
The mascara is R129,95 whilst the lipstick is R69,95

#AvonDareToBe

I have always been the type of girl that would blend in instead of standing out, the quiet one in the background and when Beauty Bulletin sent me the survey I figured our blog has started a new chapter in our lives so no more blending in.I was fortunate enough to be chosen as part of the campaign, I received The Big & Daring Volume Mascara in black as well as the Ultra Colour Bold lipstick in Pink Punch.

The Mascara gives loads of volume and does not clump up your eyelashes,the wand is shaped in a way that makes application easy and believe me I always tend to cry when putting on mascara but not this time around. The only problem I had with the mascara was the fact that it is hard to remove but I guess for some that is a good thing as it means it stays on for longer.

The Lipstick goes on smoothly and does not dry out your lips like other lipsticks do when its removed.Also I did not have the problem with Lipstick on my teeth after applying it. If the colour is abit to bold for your do not let that put you off, I found after applying it, put a tissue between your lips and kiss it, it will make the colour abit less intense also adding a sparkly lipgloss makes all the difference.

Doing this review really made me look at bright and bold colours in a different way.

Avon Big & Daring Volume Mascara - Black

I am always on the hunt for a great mascara so was like a kid on Christmas practically ripping the box open to try out Avon's newest and most daring kid on the block.

To start with I loved the packaging and how well the wand is designed, I have more than my fair share of black smudges on the bridge of my nose or corners of my eye due to poorly designed wands. I didn't suffer this with this mascara which is fantastic.

The formula is by far the best Avon have ever produced, it is the perfect balance of wetness and drying time, allowing you to build to your required level without the brush getting stuck half way though dried clumpy lashes.

Once dry I found no transfer to either my upper lids or the area just below my eye, racoon is not a good look on anyone other than, well other than a racoon really so I was naturally thrilled with this.

The mascara has great staying power, so much so they I would advise on using a good eye makeup remover when you're done.

One the Big and Daring side, I did find it added loads of volume but fell a bit short in the lengthening department. That said it ticks more than enough of my boxes to be considered a dam good mascara!

The formula has stayed silky smooth all through my 101 applications, which is rare for a mascara and alas has almost come to an end.I will soon be hounding my Avon rep for another.

#AvonDareToBe Boldly Beautifuly and Brazenly Bright

So Avon have upped the ante yet again! If you like me fell in love with the Ultra Colour Absolute Lipstick then you are definitely going to want to try out the Ultra Colour Bold range.

I recently got to test one of these pigment packed pistols in the colour 'Pink Punch'. First off I would just like to state that I would be considered quite 'drab' to the make-up world with 50 shades of nude making up my lipstick collection. Needless to say I was more than terrified to apply such a bright, bold colour, especially since I am no Michelangelo with the lip liner which I feel is essential when applying such eye catching colours.

I decided patience was key and took my time prepping and lining which really pays off when being brazen. I paired the lipstick with Avon's Ultra Glimmerstick - Pink Bouquet, which glides on like a dream and is a near perfect colour match to the lipstick.

I was completely blown away, not only did I ADORE the shade but made a mental breakthrough in deciding my lipstick collection requires a makeover of its own. The lipstick is as claimed and is extremely pigmented and incredibly creamy. I paraded around all day pleased as punch and got a good 5 hours wear without re-applying.

As I am fair the pink was a perfect choice for me. I advise checking which will suit yours best before you dare to be...The results will be that much more satisfying.

I urge all my fellow 'Nudists' to get out there and GO BIG and GET BOLD, even if just at home, you may be surprised by the result. With Summer just around the corner, now with the perfect time to take the plunge.

AVON ULTRA COLOUR BOLD LIPSTICK!

I was happy to received this lipstick in Starburst Pink.

PRODUCT CLAIMS:
1) Full colour, bold lipstic.
2) High-impact lip color with a moisturizing texture and creamy feel.
3) Super-pigmnented, high intensity shades.
4) The rich colour on the lipstick is the same colour you see on your lips.
5) Hydrating formula.
6) Full, even coverage that lasts for hours.
7) SPF15

MY THOUGHTS:
1) AT LAST Avon made a lipstick that is true to the shades indicated in the catalogue. In the past I got a bit frustrated, as lipstick colours in their catalogue, never seemed to be the same in real life.
2) The lipstick glided on and definitely has a creamy texture.
3) I love the fact that it contains SPF15. We all need sun protection and so do our lips!
4) It did seem to last a bit longer than the other Avon lipsticks I have tried in the past, but still not as long as I would have liked.
5) The lipstick is highly pigmented. The colour is a bit ;light for my fair skin tone though, so I jazzed it up with a layer of Avon's metallic eyeshadow (yes eyeshadow :-) and added another layer lipstick. That was all rounded off with a darker shade glimmerstick in Brick. (As you can see on the pics).

FINAL VERDICT: A definite improvement on colour pigmentation and last a bit longer than other Avon lipsticks. If you are looking for a hydrating lipstick, this is your answer. Would I buy another maybe darker colour in the range?...MAYBE. The lipstick had a bit of a waxy feel on my lips, which I disliked. Over all though...a good try!

BOLD AVON BIG & DARING VOLUME MASCARA!!!!

So I LOVE mascaras & was so excited to get to test this little gem! Thank you BB!!!!

PRODUCT CLAIMS:
1) 24 hour volume, with no clumps, flakes or smudges.
2) Curved brush with multi-level bristles captures every lash.
3) Wedge-shaped bristles comb lashes for clump-free volume.
4) Innovative collagen-enriched creme-gel formula is smooth and can be layered.
5) Water-resistant.

MY THOUGHTS:
1) Love the cute plumpish black container with the bright pink on top!
2) Container fits nicely in my hand.
3) Love the curved applicator brush! Easily cover all the lashes in one quick move of the hand!
4) This mascara can truly be layered, as my pics at the bottom will indicate. I started with 1 layer and ended with 5, which gave me almost a false eyelash appearance. BOLD & LOVELY!!!!!!
5) The mascara is truly water resistant! I got a fleck of it (after 5 layers were applied) in my eye and had to rinse my eyes with saline. Most of the mascara was still there afterwards.
6) If you are going to follow in my bold footsteps & apply numerous layers, just be careful to not get any in your eyes, especially if you are a contact lens wearer. MOST UNPLEASANT!!!
7) The mascara stayed on my lashes for most of the day!
8) The price is very competitive, even at the normal price of R129.95.

FINAL THOUGHTS:
Ladies, you just HAVE TO TRY THIS! You will be pleasantly surprised about the dramatic effect you can accomplish! At last a mascara that delivers on its promises! YAY, for Avon and BB!!!!
