Bronze Goddess Summer Beauty Must Haves by Avon

I haven’t been self tanning so far this summer but that doesn’t mean that I don’t still love looking like a bronze goddess. Avon continues to step up their game with new and exciting products that are very fun to use and on trend. They have been coming out with a ton of new products that are must haves for anyone looking to get golden and glow up their face and body without the need for self tanner. Here they are!

Bronze Goddess Summer Beauty Must Haves by Avon

True Color Sandy Beach Bronzing Palette / $18: Is there anything more important to looking like a bronze goddess than a gorgeous blush and bronzer palette?! The limited edition Sandy Beach Bronzing Palette comes with two bronzers called Kapari and Solana, and one blush called Flamenco that are all universally flattering shades that can be worn individually or mixed together to create a customized look. Use a light hand if you have pale skin because they go on quite pigmented and I can see them looking even more amazing on medium to darker skin tones.

True Color Dazzle Drops / $15.99: I love, love, love glowy, bronzy drops and this is one of the most exciting launches from Avon. Highlighter drops like the new True Color Dazzle Drops are so versatile and can be worn alone or mixed with anything from primer to foundation or moisturizer to create a customized sun kissed look while also giving your skin a dose of moisture. The dazzle drops contain light reflecting pearls that give you a buildable, dewy finish. Unfortunately, there is only one shade of the dazzle drops but it is a beautiful shade that can be built upon and used as a bronzing highlight for paler skin and as a pale highlighter on darker skin tones.

True Color Bold Lipstick in Fearless Fuchsia / $10.00: Nothing says summer than a hot fuchsia lipstick! The True Color Bold Lipsticks are intensely saturated with colour, that’s true to what you see in the tube, that also has really great lasting power. I love wearing bright, fun colours during the summer because they make my face look more healthy looking and brighter. Plus, right now you can buy any 2 True Color lipsticks for $9.99 and Avon will donate a lipstick to Dress for Success. So why not pick up a couple fun, summery shades and support a great cause?!

My Girl’s Night.. or Pregnancy Pampering Essentials!

Kellys Faves, Review
My Girl's Night.. or Pregnancy Pampering Essentials!

If you’re not following me on social media, you probably missed the announcement I made about my pregnancy. It is part of the reason why I haven’t been as active in blogging and doing videos as I had intended to be. It has taken a lot of energy and motivation out of me which took me out of posting reviews, makeup tutorials and pretty pictures but the time off helped me find my love for it again and slowly but surely, I want to get back to a regular posting routine on the blog and social media.

Being pregnant can take a lot of motivation out of you. I don’t doll myself up as much as I’d like to and I know it needs to become a priority. I received a package of girl’s night treats from Farleyco that are perfect for a night of pampering with the girls or if you’re pregnant and have forgotten to put your needs first.

My Girl's Night.. or Pregnancy Pampering Essentials!

Eco Tools Facial Mask Mates / $10.99 CAD: A girl’s night always starts with a good face mask. I really don’t like getting that mask gunk on my hands, so this Mask Mates set of sponges and a handy brush are the perfect mates for applying a luxurious mask without having to wash your hands a billion times. It comes with a mask applicator brush and 3 mask remover sponges. The brush is made of bamboo and is cruelty-free, plus the bristles are super soft and the flat edge can easily apply anything from creams to gels to clay with even coverage, without the mess. The sponges are reusable and made of plant pulp, which helps to effectively remove masks while also gently exfoliating your skin.

My Girl's Night.. or Pregnancy Pampering Essentials!

BeautyLash Brow Tint Kit / $19.99 CAD: When you have non-existent brows, you will do pretty much anything to get some that actually show up. I’ve tried dying my brows with hair dye but have never tried brow tinting before. This product also tints your lashes which I’m a bit more hesitant about doing. It’s a quick 2-step process that lasts up to 6 weeks and is smudge and water resistant. One box is reusable for up to 8 applications which is also amazing. The shades come in Light Brown, Medium Brown, Dark Brown and Black. I’m dying my hair soon now that I’m in the second trimester and it’s much safer at this point for me to do it, so I’m very excited to try this kit out!

My Girl's Night.. or Pregnancy Pampering Essentials!

Modèle Collagen Lip Treatment (Plump) / $29.99: I don’t have the money to spend on lip injections and wouldn’t do that at this point in time anyways, so lip plumpers are always a fun thing to try out. This one helps restore volume to your lips, reduce the signs of aging and retain moisture. You can use it alone or underneath lipstick and should be applying at least 3 times a day for a minimum of 30 days to see results. When I first put it on, I immediately noticed that my lips were NOT tingling like most plumpers do. This is a very subtle plumper that feels more like a nice lip balm, so if you’re sensitive to that tingly/stinging feeling but want something that helps make your lips look a little more fuller, this is a great option.

My Girl's Night.. or Pregnancy Pampering Essentials!

7th Heaven Charcoal Mud Face Masque / $1.99 CAD: I love doing a double mask on nights when I really want to pamper myself. I’ll start with a cream mask and then put on one that I can peel off. My skin feels more squeaky clean and refreshed when I do the double mask combo. 7th Heaven masks are a treat because they’re easy to apply and can target certain problem areas and make my skin feel really good afterwards. This 2 in 1 mask contains purifying natural charcoal and exfoliating walnut shell that work as a tag team to help detoxify your skin. The charcoal also helps absorb oil and impurities. I hate having clogged pores and love how effective charcoal is at helping keep them clean.

My Girl's Night.. or Pregnancy Pampering Essentials!

MesmorEyes #406 Kit for Almond Eye Shapes / $12.99 CAD: Lashes are always something that make me feel prettier. I feel like I can wear lashes with minimal makeup and still feel good about myself. They’re also an essential to any girl’s night when you take your party from the comfort of your home to dinner or somewhere else to let a bit loose with the girls. This kit comes in different styles depending on your eye shape which is very helpful because most lashes come in a one size fits all style. The kit not only comes in a style perfect for almond eyes which works for me, but also those with monolids, round, and hooded eyes. the lashes in these kits are hand picked to suit those eye shapes and are hand knotted and feathered from 100% sterilized human hair, with comfort band technology so even someone who doesn’t wear lashes that often will feel comfortable in them. I love this kit because of the variety of looks I can get out of these lashes, plus they’re very easy to apply and wear.

My Girl's Night.. or Pregnancy Pampering Essentials!

Purple Tree Coconut Miracle Balm / 25 ml / $6.99 CAD: Pregnancy has given me really dry and parched skin, so a good multi-use balm is a must have. This balm uses natural, organic coconut oil which help protect and provide relief from dry, cracked skin on your lips and anywhere else on your body. It’s a multi=use balm that can protect brittle nails and cuticles, tame unruly brows, and when applied to your lashes, can give them a longer more luscious look. It not only comes in yummy coconut but also aloe vera, pomegranate, and shea butter. I love multi-use products because I can use it anywhere to treat my dry skin. Even though the tube is somewhat small, the balm itself is thick and a little goes a long way.

The Age Minimize 3D 4-in-1 Cleanser is a multitasking cleanser that removes impurities in your skin that make it look dull, giving it a clean, exfoliated and brighter appearance.

My Glittery Thoughts:

I test out a lot of skincare because I love finding things that work. The TimeWise line feels luxurious on the skin, with a soft feminine scent, and the tubes are very travel friendly too. My skin feels really good, definitely more even in tone and more moisturized.  I love the cleanser because it’s got those little exfoliating granules in it so I can get some light exfoliation while I cleanse my skin and it makes it feel soothed, softer and has been helping with making it look more plump, fresh and even. I like that I can use it daily because it’s not a harsh exfoliator. The day cream is thicker in consistency compared to the night cream, most likely because it has SPF in it, but I like that about it because it makes my skin feel more hydrated and fresher. I also don’t have time to put an SPF on after my skincare during the week so I like that this has enough protection for my face so I don’t have to worry about that step.

The eye cream is very light and sinks well into the skin but still keeps that area moisturized and ready for makeup. I’ve also noticed that it dulls the look of my dark circles when I apply it. Last but not least, like the day cream, I really enjoy wearing the night cream. It’s lighter than the day cream but still hydrating and soothing. My skin doesn’t look as parched in the morning as it has been in the past. I have noticed a difference in my skin with using the products. My skin doesn’t look as rough and dull. My fine lines and wrinkles are less visible when I’m wearing the creams. I feel like I have a great base for faking that “just had a facial” look. You can also get the whole set of products for $159 on MaryKay.ca which isn’t a bad deal! If you want to try something new and anti-aging, I would definitely recommend!
