AD: 1. Avon Beauty To Go Gift Set ($45)
I may not talk about Avon super often, but I have accumulated several brand favorites over the years of trying their affordable, yet quality, products. This 8 piece gift set actually contains a few of them! Inside of a festive train case comes a few skin care faves from their Anew line— the Ultimate Multi-Performance Day & Night Creams, as well as the Supreme Advanced Performance Creme. Also inside is a bottle of the Rare Pearls Eau de Parfum, a fragrance that’s a little musky yet sweet… perfect for this season! You get a little bit of a bright floral feel while its rounded out with plum, honey, and bottom notes of pearl musk and sandalwood.
Finally, we do get 3 makeup items that I’ve personally used and love! The True Color Nourishing Lipstick in Berry Sangria is a gorgeous shade for the holidays— bold but very wearable and with a moisturizing formula that’s easy to wear for hours. The True Color Eyeshadow Quad in Mocha Latte has a great neutral range for every day looks, or smoke it out for a nighttime party eye. The shades are buttery smooth and blend effortlessly.
