Avon Gifts Make Perfect Stocking Stuffers! Review + Giveaway

I remember dreaming when I was younger, about how I was going to be a professional business woman with a porcelain face and a perfect pencil skirt, with matching jacket, running through the streets of New York City, on my way to some important meeting.

Then I grew up, married and then I decided to be a stay at home mom. It's one of the greatest jobs in the world, but although I'm not dashing to and from business meetings, I am dashing between the car-loop, grocery store, bank, PTA meetings, and random, miscellaneous events for both of the kids. I'm not doing it in a glorious business suit, (or with my perfect face on), but I am doing it.

This year I made a resolution to start wearing makeup more often. It was actually part of the Fly Lady series that we had at the school last year, and I really made a lot of personal progress. In high school and college I always left the house with some makeup on..yeah.. not so much anymore.

The one time of the year you could always count on me looking "dolled up" is during the holidays. I have great eyes, and really love experimenting with new products. A few months ago I purchased the PERFECT WEAR Eyewriter Liquid Eye Liner in Beaming Bronze from Avon.

I absolutely love this eye liner. I can apply it thick and dramatic, or thin and sleek. The bronze color gives a great dimension to my eyes, and every time I wear it I get a ton of compliments! The retail price is only $8, and I happened to get it on sale, so it was even more affordable. I am absolutely in love with this product and cannot gush about it enough, without it sounding fake. Let's just say.. if you are in the market for a great liquid liner, give this bad boy a shot!

Marissa adores the Foot Works line from Avon. Foot Works are products that pampers your feet the same way a pedicure does.. without the expense. Plus, she feels the quality of the them are "more than spa quality", and the results last even longer than professional pedi's do!

During the Holiday season, I tend to purchase a lot of stuff from Avon. They carry so much more than makeup. They carry spa products, winter wear, jewelry, fragrances, and even stuff for the men and kids in our life. Their prices make it easy to make a dollar stretch, and online there is usually some sort of discount code or free shipping promotion, which is amazing this time of the year.

They even have toys, stocking stuffers, and holiday themed items, as well. Everything on my nieces wishlists have to do with beauty products this year; teens and tweens will be delighted with something glittery in their stocking or under the tree from Avon.

When was the last time you looked at an Avon catalog? I could seriously get lost in it, they offer so much!

Our Avon consultant wanted to spread holiday cheer and has offered one lucky reader their chance to WIN a $15 Avon Gift Certificate!

CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR WINNER!

Please refer to our WINNERS PAGE for more information on how to claim your prize.
