A Touch Of Luxury: Avon's NEW Luxe Rose Gold Collection

Avon are a brand that I've always had a bit of a soft spot for. My Nan always used to hand me the ear-marked brochure whenever I went round for a cup of tea, allowing me to to choose whatever I wanted; in my early twenties I became a local rep, but spent most of my commission buying stockpiles of cosmetics I probably didn't need. Back then it was an affordable secret that you wouldn't necessarily tell your mates about, but in 2014 it's definitely a brand making waves and ensuring they're reaching out to the modern customer. Their newest collection is so far from the Avon that I'm familiar with that you wouldn't guess in a million years they were behind it; 'Luxe' is a rose gold packaged collection that's all about a little bit of luxury and smouldering smokey eyes.


Including two eye palettes and a 'Volume Extravagance' mascara, this trio would definitely get you through the party season with ease. The 'Stone Chic' palette contains three muted tones and two stronger ones that can be used to frame the eye, while the 'Luxurious Nudes' contains four nude shades and a smokey black for the perfect smouldering look. Although the pigments aren't exceptional, they are super smooth and provide a decent amount of colour - they can be built up around the eye and work really well when wet too. They're so un-Avon and the packs scream luxury, providing an affordable way to update your makeup bag.

The 'Volume Extravagance' mascara is really quite fabulous, the large brush being able to coat lashes effectively and provide a serious amount of lift. In only one coat my lashes look volumised, with two to three coats making a real difference to my overall look. The brush is slightly twisted too, allowing every lash to be captured and coated for maximum impact; I'm really impressed with this and think it's definitely worth a buy considering its £9.00 price point. It's so nice to see a brand like Avon continuing to push the boundaries and launch exciting collections, however small, to reach out to new customers. They've definitely upped their game and I can't wait to see what's in store for 2015. What do you think of this new collection?


The 'Luxe' eyeshadow palettes are £10.00 each and the 'Volume Extravagance' mascara is £9.00.

  2. I stopped buying Avon a while back when no one at my new job was doing it, but after seeing these beauties I may need to find someone else to buy them through!

  5. The packaging looks absolutely beautiful! I can't help but dislike that they wasted eyeshadow space on putting the sponge applicator in there, does anyone use those?! Great review! x
