Who loves vintage glam? I do, I do! From my earliest makeup loving days I clearly remember a fascination with the supremely glamorous makeup of the 40’s and 50’s. So much glam! As much as I love colorful makeup, I’ll always have a heart for the bold lips and looks from what we now consider vintage, and as Avon accurately describes it, Iconic Avon.
For Holiday 2018 Avon went full out reliving the vintage looks and products of the past, featuring an entire beauty collection with an old school glamorous twist. Today I’m sharing the Iconic Avon Lipsticks ($6.99 each) along with the most darling Iconic Avon Mirror compact ($8.99).
From left to right are Holiday Chocolate, Merry Mauve, Sugar Plum, Wine Kisses and Sugar Plum. I wasn’t expecting to see the darker colors in this collection – I don’t know why, but I was thinking this would be a set of various red lipsticks, which would have been cute.
The look and feel of these lipsticks does harken me back to a simpler time and place in this world. The packaging and presentation? Divine! The vintage texture of these creamy lipsticks? Hmmm… I’m not quite sure how to accurately describe it, but they’re not my style. They’re a little too lightweight and the texture is just not up my alley, so as cute as they are, I’d pass!
The mirror itself is super adorable! I’ve always loved the look of vintage compacts and this is right on the mark!
My Final Thoughts: While the Iconic Avon Mirror is a win in my book, I have to pass on the Iconic Avon Lipsticks. More about the Iconic Avon collection for Holiday 2018 is coming soon.
Rating: C for the lipsticks, A for the mirror.
Price: Lipsticks, $6.99 each; Mirror, $8.99
