My Mini Avon Haul & Review-

Avon makeup products

Hi Ladies,

With my great success with Avon products I decided to check out few more of their stuffs. My face is a mixture of oily and super oily skin he he, so I can’t use just any powder or foundation. It has to match my skin status which I feel is forever oily. So this time I decided to try their liquid foundation called AVON Simply Pretty Gel Foundation. The word gel actually caught my attention as I believe anything gel will suit my skin type. So here it is like

AVON Simply Pretty Gel Foundation (Natural)

AVON Simply Pretty Gel Foundation.

What AVON Simply Pretty Gel Foundation Claims:

Enhance your skin’s natural radiance & get even flawless skin with simply pretty gel foundation. The water based moisturizing formula feels fresh and light, as if you are not wearing any make up.

Its Price:

It is priced at Rs 149 for 30ml.

Availability of Shades:

AVON Simply Pretty Gel Foundation comes in three shades namely,

  • Light Beige (16826)
  • Medium Beige (16827)
  • Natural Beige (76828)

How to Use:

I simply squeeze the tube a little & apply a small pea sized amount on chin, forehead & nose. Blend it well & spread evenly using a wet sponge.

What is good about AVON Simply Pretty Gel Foundation:

  • It blends & glides on smoothly & comes off easily too. Also it is so light that it doesn’t feel cakey at all nor does it leaves you with that heavy sticky feeling.
  • As said it comes off very easily, no need to use makeup remover just a mild face wash is enough to remove the foundation.
  • I love the way that it makes my skin so fair, even toned and smooth.
  • The foundation is unscented which is a plus especially for those who are really sensitive with fragranced products.
  • It is not oily & water based.
  • I never had any rashes, allergies or any weird skin reactions with this one. I also did not break out. With a powder foundation to set it, it looks good to go.
  • It is dermatologist tested & also approved for sentisitive skin.
  • It is hypoallergenic & works as a perfect base for my makeup.

What is Not Good about AVON Simply Pretty Gel Foundation?

  • Comes in only three limited shades, so it is difficult to choose the right shade. I wish it comes in other shades too.
  • The packaging is cute but comes in a very small quantity, 30ml tube.
  • This does not have a full coverage on the skin, it only has a semi-matte, medium coverage so for those who like a full coverage foundation to cover some deeper imperfections, this one cannot cut it .


I am very satisfied with the foundation for the price. This one is good enough as a daily foundation, but I noticed that by the end of the working day, I have had a lot of products sticking on my hanky or tissue when I blot my face. This works great for non-humid and a/c rooms, but not outside.

#AVON Simply Pretty Shine no more pressed powder (Natural Beige)

Its Price:
It is priced at `149 for 9g. Avon products are often on sale kindly check their online brochure for the current price.

Availability of Shades:

How to Use:

After applying the gel foundation I pat the press powder gently on my face.

What is good about AVON Simply Shine no more pressed powder:

  • It oil free & dermatologist tested.
  • Its special micro-powders absorb shine while wet/dry formula allows you to control its coverage for a fresh, clean look.
  • It provides great coverage especially when applied wet. In fact, even with dry application it is great at controlling oil.
  • Unscented.
  • SPF 14 helps shield skin the damaging UAA/UV rays
  • Non-comedogenic and non-acnegenic
  • Really affordable. You’ll get it at an even lesser price when it goes on sale.

What is Not Good about AVON Simply Shine no more pressed powder?

  • It comes in a single compartment. I wished that its packaging includes two compartments, one for the powder and another for the sponge.


So, I would recommend one for everyone. It’s a win-win situation, anyway. If it suits you then you are able to find a great everyday compact. If it would not, it would not hurt so much since this is really cheap.

# AVON Simply Pretty Simply Color Bliss Lipstick:

The first thing I noticed when I tried Perfect Wear was how smooth it felt going on. It felt like applying silk to my lips, unlike some of the other brands .I bought two shades from this range. It is priced at Rs 125 each. There is wide range of color to select from. The color is very pigmented & creamy. I wish it had a little sheen to it but any how it is a great product. A review has already been done by Neha, kindly check it too.

Graceful Nude: It is a great nude color suitable for everyday use. I really keep my look very simple with this shade. I apply it with my kajal, mascara & a touch of lip gloss & I am done.

Mango Mania: As like the nail paint the lip color is very similar to orange/ brick color. Goes well with most of my colorful dresses. I have a wheatist completion & I feel this shade really suits me well & also helps to brighten my completion.

Have you ever tried any of these products from Avon. Please drop in your views….

  6. Never tried Simply pretty foundation or pressed powders, but their Avon color range is good. I have been using Avon Perfect Wear kajal. It has a sponge tip at the other end, n its awesome to give kajal a smuged look.

    I have their purple eyeshadow quad, used on a night out, looked great. The blushes are nice too. Good color and texture and lasts long. i think Avon has 2 ranges. the higher end one is good.
    My sis is a representative. So i keep getting some stuff. Let me know if anyone needs more info.

  8. Hi Sush! Nice review..this is an AVON fan here..i simply adore AVON’s high end products but for me this foundation was a big let down!! 🙁 😥 maybe I dint use the wet sponge trick..and it was like patchy-here & scratchy-there situation…BTW wats the shade name/number of the AVON simply pretty compact?? i think it will suit my complexion as well :-*

    PS: If you really like AVON then try their supershock mascara!!! I simply go ga-ga over it!!!!!

  9. I had a long day with people pulling my legs left, 😥 😥 😥 middle, and right. Okay, here’s the list of people I will be

    ignoring for a lifetime and what I want to happen to them.
    1. Rati aka Poutmati. She is the main dayaan….I would like her to sprinkle some yellow fluid on her and curse :curse:

    :curse: :curse: :curse:.
    1. She develops extramarital affair with

    Khali and elopes with him.
    2. She loses her much “favourite” maternity

    bra that she locks up in her money safe.
    3. She develops a dirty mouth odor/body odor

    that no mouthwash/deodarant can take care of.
    4. Someone burgles her house and she loses

    all her earrings, handbangs except what I

    gifted her, shoes, chappals, toothbrush,

    innerwear, outerwear, and all her MAC, Chanel,

    Dior, Colorbar, Kiehl’s, YSL, Bobby

    Brown…….let the only thing remain with her

    be the Red Gulabari Spray Rose Water bottle.

    Second, Eno Kumar: :curse: :curse: :curse: :curse: :curse:

    No sprinkling…just cursing Eno Kumar that he

    binges on :beer: :liquor: :beer: :liquor:

    vodka and beer, and wakes up the next morning

    right next to a Godzilla and may Rati catch

    him redhanded.

    Third, Rads, :curse: :curse: :curse: :curse: :curse: :curse: :curse: :curse:

    ****Sprinkling some yellow water on her and

    1. May the cute guy at Dior that she is

    eyeing have a squealy waly female voice.
    2. Let Rads husband donate all her Chanels to

    their maid.
    3. May Rads wake up one morning and find out

    that she has turned into the Wilbur guy.
    4. May Rads and wilbur’s Secret MMS sell at

    50% discount at end of season sales.

    Fourth, HD,
    :curse: :curse: :curse: :curse: :curse: :curse:
    ****Sprinkling some yellow water on her and


    1. May HD’s naada get stuck in an emergent

    loo situlation.
    2. Let HD take a fancy to Kamaal Khan.
    3. Let HD marry someone who has a very

    horrible mouth odor…aka saas ki badbu.

    Ikky and sree, I am sparing you two today…..curse stock got over.

    1. 1. She develops extramarital affair with

      Khali and elopes with him.

      Khali won’t be able to run, too giant na. SO I can’t elope with him.- plan fails.. :evilgrin:

      2. She loses her much “favourite” maternity bra that she locks up in her money safe.

      Thank God!!! :evilgrin:

      3. She develops a dirty mouth odor/body odor that no mouthwash/deodarant can take care of.

      Note” fly to hybd to have a heart to heart talk with jomol and stay there till I don’t pass that odour to her” :evilgrin:

      4. Someone burgles her house and she loses all her earrings, handbangs except what I

      gifted her, shoes, chappals, toothbrush, innerwear, outerwear, and all her MAC, Chanel,

      Dior, Colorbar, Kiehl’s, YSL, Bobby Brown…….let the only thing remain with her be the Red Gulabari Spray Rose Water bottle.

      Glad I have insured all my makeup…Note : claim the insurance money and buy new stuff, the one that I have on my wish list. :evilgrin: :evilgrin:

      Second, Eno Kumar: Curse Curse Curse Curse Curse

      No sprinkling…just cursing Eno Kumar that he binges on Beer Liquor Beer Liquor vodka and beer, and wakes up the next morning right next to a Godzilla and may Rati catch him redhanded.

      It’s been days I have had a drink with Sanjeev..*Note : get drunk with him and do naughty things :X-P:

  10. I don’t understand…why did you give Rati more curses..so unfair..you give her bag..you give her more curses :-((

    Anywayssss…I am thinking Jomo lous me…cos she wants me to turn into Wilbur who is the Lou of her life…apppil of her eeeeyyye. Jomol…..I know you found out you are not getting the original Wilbur..so you try changing me into Wilbur..but me not that kind..me dont want to Louuu you 😮 😮 😮

  11. And I will change into Wilbur and then Wilbur and I will have an MMS floating around at 50% discount!! This seems less like a curse for me and more like your secret fantasy…Wilbur and Wilbur MMS at 50% off available for Jomo to view over and over again…ewwwww…Pls Jomo..you dont discuss your wishes like this on a public platform. 😮 😮 😮

  12. And ohhh..forgot to tell you..the Dior guy..he doesnt look cute..but his voice…when he explains how the perfumes smell differently on different people…sighhhhhhh..it was good Jomo..it was good..and quite unlike your Lou Wilbur :smug:

  13. Gee…chee…I do wanna you to transform into Wilbur overnight….but then I would tie you to a tree ulta and beat you with a churalvadi on your bum…. :cute: :shy: :cute: :shy:

  14. Okay…then let the Dior guy be a “gay” 😀 😀 😀 😀 😀 …..Hey..whatever you say……..what an insult it would be to have Your and Your Wilbur’s MMS at 50% reduced rate…..cheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee :silly: :silly: :silly:

  15. JOMO..u toooo funny to bother fighting with… :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl: you are so going to regret this statement of yours though..this very last comment..got to work…just you wait..

  17. Ohhh no dont die Rati…read Jomo’s comment naaa..I was wondering whether to tell or not..but anyways if you are dying…then you see and delete it ok and then die

    “I had a long day with people pulling my legs left, middle, and right.”

    Does she mean she has three legs – left, middle, right ?:-) ?:-) ?:-) :evilgrin:
