Haul from my Avon "You Make It Beautiful" Blogger Challenge Entry

Hi everyone!!

Last Tuesday, I received a call that really surprised me. Ms Mara from Avon called to inform me that I was chosen as one of the semi-finalist for the AVON "You Make IT Beautiful" blogger challenge. It came as a surprise because I never thought I'd make it. When I saw the list of other semi-finalist...I was like.. OH MY! Because most of the girls who were chosen were bloggers that I have followed and looked up to even before I started my blog and Youtube channel. Most of the girls were from Manila so they had their briefing in the Avon main office. As for me, I had my briefing via phone call because I am here in Iloilo. They also sent me a list of the items that I need to get from an Avon branch to use on the next challenge.

So here are the items that I got:

List of the items that I got:
Avon Ideal Luminous Dual Powder Foundation in Nude Beige

Avon Glimmerstick Eye Liner in Blackest Black

 Avon Glimmerstick Eyebrow definer in Soft Black

Avon Ultra Color Rich Lipstick in "Berry Bright" and "Tangerine Tango"

Avon SuperShock Max Mascara

True Color Eyeshadow Quad in "Pastel Sweets"

Avon Ultra Glazewear lipgloss in "Mauve Movement"

Ideal Luminous Blush in "Peach"

To be honest, I am quite happy with the stuff that I got. So whether I get in or not is not really a big deal because I got these stuff for free! HiHihihi

Anyway, the next challenge what to create a look using these products and choose from three categories. We were made to choose from "Color Fantasy", "Flushed with Beauty" and "Smokey Eye". My eyeshadow quad is composed of pastel colors plus the lipsticks that I got were bright, so I decided to do "Color Fantasy" instead. I played around with the makeup until I was able to finally create a look that looks best on me.

Of all the products, my favorite are the lipsticks because they are quite pigmented and long lasting as well. I do plan to do a separate and much in depth review of some of the products that I got from Avon. My second fave is the brow definer. If it wasn't black,it would have been my favorite but it can be too dark on me because my hair is reddish brown. I am planning to but the dark brown and see if it will match my hair. I like how easy it was to apply and the fact that it is not too creamy.

Here is the look that I created:

I used "Berry  Bright" for my lips. I tried using "Tangerine Tango" for this look, but I think it does not look good..too loud...if you get what I mean.

Anyway, here is my official entry video:
The last part was cut. :( I had a hard time uploading my video and my movie maker was acting up! It was a miracle that my video was up at 11:47pm last night. The deadline was on or before August 11, 2013 at 12am. Gosh..I was sooo scared that I won't be able to make it! I hope you support me once voting is up. It will start on Monday, August 12, 2013.
