Feast your eyes on the new limited edition Smoke and Mirrors collection just in time for Spring from Avon. Gone are the days that I only wanted to see the Avon catalogue for the smelly pages, they have upped their game beyond all expectations, each new collection is contemporary and not only wearable but wantable! With that in mind I was fairly delirah when this arrived on my desk for a looksee, fancy a peek?
|Golden Fawn & Blackberry €8 each|
First up we have the Supershock Gel Eyeliner, this is Avon's best selling eyeliner and looking at these two new limited edition colours you can see why. They are highly pigmented and unbelievably soft because they went on so smoothly I didn't hold out much hope for the 'finish that lasts all day' claim but please see exhibit A below M'Lud.

|True Coloue Eyeshadow Quad in Mystery and Smoke & Mirrors €11 each.|
|Mystery is bright and fresh|
|Smoke and Mirrors is more subtle, ideal for an understated look|
While silky soft and beautiful these shadows would definitely benefit from the use of a primer to further bring out their pigmentation. Or if subtle and understated is your thing, just wear as is, the taupe above is definitely my favourite so far.
|Ultra Rich Lipstick in Apricot Mystery, Nude and Infused & Purple Hazed €9|
|Nailwear Pro Nail Enamel in Apricot Mystery €8|
The Smoke and Mirrors collection will hit catalogues in February, if you don't already have a dedicated 'Avon Lady' or Gent (Humblest apologies, Peter) you could always order a catalogue online. Believe me there's so much more than a whiff of sniffy pages to look forward to.
My favourites of the collection have to be the Supershock Liners and the Lippies. What do you think? Anything tickling your fancy?
**Update Have you seen the new NailWear Pro + range from Avon made with diamond dust? I love 'em!**
