I'm back with a 'launch' post from none other than Avon. Come February 2012, Avon will be bringing to the beauty market two brand spanking new products, the 'Ideal Flawless' Liquid Foundation in 16 shades and the 'Shine Attract' Lipstick in 10 luscious shades.
So last week I popped along to the launch of these beauties, an event hosted by the one and only Jackie Tyson , yep that gorgeous make-up artist we always see in the Avon catalogues, also known as the Chief Make-Up Artist for Britain's Got Talent & previous X Factor Live Shows. She is just as gorgeous and lovely in real life as I imagined her to be.
The 'Ideal Flawless' Foundation (15.50 Euro) comes in 16 shades. That's just music to our ears, from the lightest to darkest, we will have six shades for fair skin tones (from neutrals to pinks and yellow based), six shades for medium skin tones and four shades for dark complexions. Designed to cater all skin types (including mature skin as Jackie advises), this foundation is "a blend of multi-shaped pigments that allows the light to pass through, reflecting natural skin tone to provide a flawless, natural looking base" (Quote from Press Release). Best applied with fingers, this formula that required four years in the making, promises flawless yet natural results.
In other words, the consistency is light, feels quite mousse-y to me and spreads like a dream. It provides a medium coverage that is buildable to a full one. I'm really impressed with this formula, I find that I need to have a well exfoliated skin before applying, and that a setting powder is a must for me particularly, to keep that natural glow of mine at bay.
The 'Shine Attract' Lipsticks (11 Euro) are just yummy looking. I mean look at them: yu-mmy!
The centre of the bullet is a lipstick that provides both colour and lasting results, while the outer clear gel gives the lips the lusted moisture and shine. These apply quite sheer while the clear gel is infused with Vitamin E for a smooth application and moisture.

Do these appeal to you at first glance?
