Mango Mania and a little bit of champagne : My first Avon purchase

Hi everyone!

I recently made my first Avon purchase and I’m loving each and every product I bought. I picked up 3 nail paints from the Simply Pretty range taking advantage of the offer- ‘Sweet Pink’ , ‘Champagne Shimmer‘ and ‘Mango Mania‘. Also picked up a lipstick from the Simply Pretty range ‘Mango Mania‘. My Avon representative Jinal also gave me Avon Naturals Wild apple and grape hand and body lotion as a free gift with my purchases. Thank you Jinal πŸ™‚

Mango Mania is a coral-brick shade that instantly brings warmth to the face. Its neither too bright nor too dull, just has the right amount of orange tone and looks beautiful worn as it is. It is the sort of shade that’ll suit all skin tones. Thank you Natasha for recommending this shade to me πŸ™‚

Mini Review : The texture is smooth but not too soft, its not very moisturizing) and will not suit people with dry lips. The staying power is good – Β easily lasts 3-4 hours with meals in between and an even tint remains on the after 4 hours too. Β The packaging is not so attractive but I don’t mind that at this price. The shade is mentioned in small font at one end of the lipstick so to identify a particular shade- you need to go through each label. The pigmentation is good and coverage is medium in single swipe and can be built up to opaque intense color in 2-3 swipes. Β Th finish is almost matte but not drying.

At Rs 125, its a steal! And I highly recommend this particular shade to everyone.

Rating: 4.5/5

Will I repurchase: Yes.

This is what I wore today. You can share your makeup breakdown of the day with me on Facebook by clicking HERE.

I’m currently wearing the nail paint ‘Champagne Shimmer’ from the 3 nail paints I purchased. I picked up 3 nail paints for Rs 105 from the May catalog. As the name suggests, it is a champagne color with evenly distributed fine shimmer in it. Single coat Β gives a sheer coverage and double coat builds up the shimmer for a full coverage opaque look. I have worn the nail paint for 2 days now without top or base coat and there’s been no chipping yet. It gives a fairer and glamorous look to the hands. The shimmer is not subtle but its not too blingy either.

      • June 1, 2011 / 4:39 pm

        Have you tried LBD from Avon…? The fragrance is just heavenly….!!!

        • June 1, 2011 / 6:10 pm

          Ohh no I haven’t but thanks for the recco. I was looking for a perfume πŸ™‚

  11. June 1, 2011 / 12:06 pm

    ankita, any recos for a dusty rose colour? I am looking for something similar to nyx tea rose

    • June 1, 2011 / 1:31 pm

      NYX tea rose is very close to Chambor silk touch ‘Silk Pop’. Its not a very subtle shade actually. If you’re looking for a dusty rose shade, I think there are some in Maybelline moisture extreme by name of Dusky rose or Windsor rose. Revlon super lustrous ‘Rose Velvet’ is also very pretty.

      • June 1, 2011 / 4:38 pm

        thanks… will chk these out….

    Hey Corallista, wow!!! I liked the mango mania.. yummy and perfect for everyday wear.

    You guys are wow! wow! really doing a great job! Simply amazing ….. was just browsing to buy Avon lipsticks and got accidentally hooked up with this site and i tell you this is such an addiction. I work from home. This has become my teatime partner now πŸ™‚ first thing in the mornings. I have been going through all the reviews for 3 days now. I felt like these 3 days went in a wink. VERY NICE REVIEW FROM ALL YOU GUYS…… GREAT JOB.

    I browsed many sites and only this was the site, which amazed me and marked it right away as my home page. I was a rep previously and i used to love the Avon lippies. Nice shades they have. I have planning to buy simply pretty lippies and I have ordered a few of them. I am searching for a matte finish, not the shimmer kind though, BABY PINK color lipstick for every day use and which is not loud.

    PS: One more thing, I think u guys need a tap on ur shoulders as well πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

      Thanks Roops πŸ™‚ This means a lot. Glad you enjoyed reading my reviews and posts! I’ve just become an Avon rep myself and just beginning to explore the products. I’m not sure of a Pink shade for everyday wear in Avon but I can recommend you some shades from Maybelline colorsensational range if you like- they are not matte finish though but not shimmery either, just have a creamy slightly glossy finish. Pink Petal, Make me Pink, Plaza pink and Warm me up are nice soft pink shades.

        Thanx a lot Corallista, I was really looking forward for your reply. I just checked all these color and fallen for Pink Petal…. was the color i was looking for… all the shades look absolutely sensational and tempting. Waiting for my orders, which i have placed in Avon…. Rich wine, Precious purple, Truffle, and Amethyst (which i thought will have that soft pink color) and as per the review, I think it will turn out to be a bit shimmer and louder kind …. don’t know…. Actually i wanted the pink one for my 6-year-old daughter, saakshi. She is quite a fashion geek and waiting eagerly for the parcel. πŸ™‚
