I haven't bought any Avon products for years so I thought I'd give it a try again.
It has certainly changed, remember the old days when you waited for your Avon lady to thrust the newest catalogue into your hand, you wrote an order down, yep a written order, and then wait in anticipation for a bag of stuff to be dropped off which for the life of you, you couldn't remember what you ordered?
You can still order that way I understand but wow, now your Avon representative is online with a fancy profile and a business name, it's all gone modern.
I was quite impressed, as I had a look through all the make up and guessed what shades to buy. I always like to see a lipstick and try my foundation but the Avon products had similar names to the products I normally use so I went on that philosophy. You always worry when choosing from colour swatches in catalogues in case it turns out to be a completely colour when it turns up but I must say their pictures match up quite well.
I can't quite believe how much stuff is in the book now, there was always toiletries and perfume but they have expanded into home items as well. I can remember when they sold jewellery and the highlight of your order was borrowing the plastic rings to find out what ring size you were. Always good to be prepared in case someone proposed I thought. I bet there were Avon reps chasing their customers around all over the place for those ring things as you always forgot to give them back.
I placed my order online and it arrived by courier very quickly so can't fault the service at all. I've tried it all on and I actually love it...... I ordered (pictured)
- Colour Trend Final touch Pressed Powder (translucent)
- Avon True Colour Luminous Blush (peach)
- Avon True Colour Supreme Nourishing Lipstick Revitalising (raspberry)
- Avon True Colour Winged Out Mascara (blackest black)
- Avon True colour Eyeshadow Quad (berry love)
- Avon True Colour Flawless Liquid Foundation (ivory)
