I’ve tried to cull event posts from my blog and instead focus on the products that the events are about when posting as most events tend to follow a fairly similar pattern and I don’t fancy boring readers with the same post over and over again! However, I will occasionally post about an event if there’s lots of fun stuff worth talking about and a good example of this is the Avon event I attended last week.
The event was the launch of Avon’s Arctic Goddess collection which is a range of nine products including two gorgeous new eye palettes, three lipglosses, three nail varnishes and a new mascara. What was great about the event was the fact that the whole Avon make-up range (I think!) was on display, and as I’m pretty much unfamiliar with the brand’s make-up it was fab to be able to see everything and get a good idea of what’s on offer whilst also snapping some pictures so you can check it out too. Here are the pics:
What was also very exciting was the presence of three very cool people who are tied-in with the brand. Alesha Dixon – Avon’s ambassador and easily the most charming celeb I’ve met yet who spent the evening going up to people and striking up conversations; usually it’s the other way around! – and Sam and Nic who are the Pixiwoo sisters and they are at least fifty times more beautiful in the flesh than their pictures suggest….it was hard being in the same room with these three women without wanting to runaway and hide!
The Arctic Goddess collection, as modelled by Alesha in the pictures above, is a collection of strong sea greens and blues for the nails and eyes, with more natural peach and brown-based nudes for the lips.
It’s a very pretty collection that is reasonably priced and definitely worth checking out when it launches in November with prices starting at £6.
