Calling all curly girlies! I have frizzy hair, and I’m proud of it. But that doesn’t stop me from doing everything in my power to get my curls under control. I’ve tried it all — from Japanese hair treatments to the most expensive salon products — and I have a very strict haircare routine. Curls are a tricky business, after all! Yet I’m always willing to try a new product, like Avon’s Advance Techniques Frizz Control Lotus Shield, which literally repels water from hair by forming a barrier that blocks humidity. It took a bit of trial and error for me to figure out the best way to use this product on my hair, though. Keep reading »
“If the shade is in the same family, but a slight variation it should be okay.”
– Jillian Dempsey, a celebrity makeup artist and Patrick Dempsey‘s wife, answered a question that’s been on my mind since Michelle Obama wore blue eyeshadow with a blue gown to the White House State Dinner. The first lady followed Jillian’s rule; her eyeshadow is close to teal, whereas, her gown is a royal blue. To read more of Jillian’s makeup tips from her Avon Twitterview check out #AvonJDBeauty.

Your Avon Mark catalog will no longer arrive with fresh-faced Lauren Conrad on the cover because “Twilight” star Ashley Greene is the new ambassador of the Mark brand. If you’re not familiar with Mark, then maybe Ashley will convince you to try the affordable cosmetics when her TV and prints ads launch this fall. But she’s not the only newbie arriving at Avon.
The company is also launching two new fragrances with fashion label Hervé Léger to be called Hervé Léger Femme and Hervé Léger Homme. A body-conscious Hervé Léger dress might not be in your budget, but now you and your boo can get that upscale smell without handing over major dollars.

It’s kind of surprising that the gladiator sandal has remained trendy for going on three summers now. But, honestly, the look isn’t for everyone. Avon‘s Mod Fever Patent Sandal bridges the divide between strap-happy gladiators and simple thong sandals, a staple in most women’s closets. The circles add subtle flair and the tiny heel gives the right amount of height for elongating the leg while still being stroll-worthy. Plus, the patent leather-like material means a sudden downpour won’t ruin the shoes. Now that’s definitely a happy holiday!
Now that Keri Hilson is the new face of Avon, she can be known for something other than completely effing up the national anthem.

I don’t want to be affiliated with too many brands. It’s got to make sense, and it makes sense [with Avon]. I love fragrance. I love beauty. I love to teach women that they should feel confident and feel good about themselves for themselves.” [The YBF] Keep reading »
Zoe Saldana, 31, is better known for playing a sexy blue alien in “Avatar,” but now she can add Avon lady to her resume. They’ve just announced that she’ll be the face of their new fragrance, Eternal Magic, which debuts in April, and will appear on their new brochure alongside the color cosmetics collection. Apparently, the scent “takes inspiration from the rare Princess Monaco Rose,” which, as far as we know, did not grow on Pandora. [People] Keep reading »
