New Spring Products from Avon | Nourishing Lip Oil and Big & Phenomenal Volume Mascara

A few weeks ago Avon sent me a lovely package containing three new products. A mascara that should give you lots of volume, a nourishing lip oil and a new matte lipstick. I tried the mascara and the lip oil but the lipstick is not really my colour, so I'm not going to review it, instead, I will include it in a giveaway that I'm planning. I did review their matte lipstick formula before, so if you are interested, you can check this post.

Avon True Nourishing Lip Oil Shimmering Petal

The Nourishing Lip Oil comes in a clear square packaging. You get 7ml of product for around 9€ but with Avon, you can always count on some discounts. The applicator is soft and fluffyOn top, there is also a stopper so the excess product is wiped down. The formula should lock 3x more moisture. It contains jojoba, avocado and coconut oil, as well as vitamin E. It has an spf12 protection.

The texture feels like a lightweight and oily lip gloss but not sticky. It feels very comfortable on the lips. There are only two shades available, both are pink. I would love it if there was a peachy shade for the summer. My shade is called Shimmering Petal. It looks very shimmery and pink when you look at it in the packaging but it's not. The shimmer isn't that visible on the lips, you can mostly detect in on the sunlight. The pink is also very subtle, it just gives a hint of colour to the lips. The finish is glossy and it has a light caramel sugary scent that I like.

I usually wear it on its own but you can also wear it on top of a lipstick to give it a bit of shine. On its own it lasts for a good time, even when the product wears off, it leaves a very thin layer so my lips don't feel dry for hours. This and some lip glosses are mostly all I have been wearing lately because my lips have been super dry this winter.

The wand is plastic and quite big. It has a slight hourglass shape, the bristles are the same length on the sides. There are also bristles on the top, meant for easily separating the bottom lashes. This is the type of wand that I really like, but the formula is a bit too wet, I needed to be careful not to clump my lashes, so it's not the easiest to use. I tried using the top part for my lower lashes, but it didn't work, but to be fair, I never could do this, I much prefer using the wand normally on my lower lashes.

I already owned one of the Avon's Big & ... mascaras and that one I didn't like, so I hoped I would like this one. The problem begins because this mascara doesn't want to dry down, like ever. I have never experienced this by a mascara. I can feel the mascara for the whole day, even when I blink, I can feel the upper and lower lashes sticking together and it's so annoying. I also noticed this mascara smudged around my eyes, like really heavily smudged and I haven't experienced this since I first started to use mascara so many years ago. I can't even imagine what would happen if I shed a tear or two. I'm just happy that I first tried it at home because I don't want to look like a panda the whole day. It was easy to remove.

The nourishing lip oil has been a favourite since I got it. Like I said, these type of products are the only ones I use lately and they help to keep my lips in decent shape. The mascara disappointed me a lotThe formula is very black and it does give a nice effect, not a whole lot of volume like it promises, but still okay. I would be quite satisfied if only it wouldn't stick my eyes together and smudge all around them.

Thank you for reading!

  1. Olje mi je zanimivo že od prvih objav na Instagram Story-ih :) Premokre maskare so pa moj pet peeve, ker uničijo zavihanost v tisočinki.

    1. Olje 100% priporočam :D Maskara pa je verjetno kar ena najslabših kar sem jih testirala :/ Ugotavljam, da mi Avonove maskare ne odgovarjajo ravno :/

  4. Meni je olje tudi zelo všeč. Ga res veliko uporabljam. :)
    Maskara pa tudi pri meni dobi minus. Najbolj od vsega me je živciralo, ker se mi je packala. Tako kot si sama opisala, pa po navadi z nobeno maskaro nimam teh problemov. Nisem pa opazila, da bi bila tako mokra. Moram še potestirat in bit pozorna na to.

    1. Olje je odlično :D
      Pri maskari me niti ne bi toliko motilo, če bi se packala, meni je bilo čudno to, da je bila cel dan mokra in so se mi trepalnice lepile :/ Pa sem naredila samo en nanos.
