Avon Review and GIVEAWAY!! ENDED

Well, I have been out of blog world for a couple of days due to Thanksgiving, Black Friday, and a sick little boy. Excuses, excuses. What better way to come back then with free Avon!

I was sent 2 Botanicals Bamboo Reed Diffusers and 2 Jillian Dempsey for Avon Essential Beauty Palettes.

So here you go- First of all I LOVE the Botanicals Bamboo Reed Diffuser.

"Natural bamboo reeds absorb scented oil and diffuse fragrance while adding a harmonious dash of beauty to your surroundings. 10 bamboo reeds included. 2 fl. oz. scented oil included. Ceramic vase, 5 1/2" H x 3" W. Bamboo, 12" H."

I have a bad experience with one from the Pottery Barn before so I was a little nervous to try it. I'm so glad I did. The modern looking holder is perfect with my decor (because we all know my decor is just so stylish and modern with all of my garage sale finds! ). I love the scent that they sent (didn't even mean to do that). It wasn't overwhelming at all, just a nice pleasant aroma that makes my home smell pretty! Do I really have to give one away? I have other rooms that want to smell this pretty too!

The Jillian Dempsey for Avon Essential Beauty Palettes is awesome. Does the name sound familiar? That's right Grey's Anatomy fans. This is the yummy Patrick Dempsey's wife and now she has makeup.

"Magnetic-close compact with built-in mirror. 4" L x 3 1/4" W. Each gift-ready palette includes:2 lip colors (.10 oz. total net wt.)2 eyeshadows (.10 oz. total net wt.)1 blush (.10 oz. net wt.)dual-sided applicator".

I chose to use the warm set and of course loved it. I like that they took the guess work out of matching makeup for me. The colors are so pretty but not too dark. I like my makeup natural looking and this was natural. The lip colors were just the right amount of color and the eyeshadows were easy to put on with the applicator. I also have been wanting to try cream makeup and liked it a lot. Especially the blush. It was easy and I had it all on in about a minute.

The oustide of the palette is very appealing to so it looks cute in your makeup bag and is easy to take it with you on the go.

So do want to win? One person will win a diffuser and a palette in cool. This is pretty easy, just leave me a comment with your email address. Only one comment per person. I'm keeping it simple since this is my first time doing this. I will use to pick the winner. Giveaway ends on Dec. 6 th at midnight. I will post the winner on my blog and email the winner. And if you really want to, tell all your friends!
