Two weeks ago I was lucky enough to tag along with Ondo Lady to the Avon Beauty Product Spring/Summer Launch. The venue was different from the fancy hotel that bloggers are used to, the Avon team hired a double-decker bus customised into a very white and pink cosy pad. The bus travelled across the Westend of London inviting onboard Press and bloggers.
We were welcomed in by the lovely ladies, champagne, mince pie (for the feel of the festive season), chocolates etc. On display were the new range and some of the old Avon Beauty Product collections. I felt like a kid in a candy store with all these makeup around me. They had Liz Pugh a top makeup artist to help us choose the right lipstick colour and give us some beauty tips…I mean she’s worked on big names such as Mary j, Keira Knightly, Victoria Beckham etc. And she’s giving me beauty tips *gasp* 😱
There were manicures, and I was taken by how gorgeous the nail polishes were. I tried the Red Bombshell, and it looked very fresh and vibrant a definite a must-have for Spring/Summer. Ondo Lady also tried out the new Avon Perfect Kiss lipstick, Naughty but Nude, which is a soft beige colour that moisturises the lips. She’s been looking for a new natural colour lipstick, so this was perfect for her. I had a lot of fun on the bus as a blogger (Even though I only just “tagged along”). The Avon Beauty Team were very friendly, very welcoming. They answered every question asked in detail.
I thought the idea of the moving bus was a great one that fulfilled many purposes. The brand has come a long way since it was started 125 years ago, and the era of the Avon Lady. Avon products are available to buy from the Avon Beauty Product Website.
The nail polishes are on special offer for £3.
