Avon Arctic Goddess event & quick review

Saturday 13 October 2012

I recently attended the Avon Arctic Goddess launch which introduced 9 new products to their already substantial cosmetics range; the Arctic Goddess collections includes two new palettes, three lipglosses & nail varnishes and a mascara.

I've haven't properly tried Avon products lately; I tried a few products here and there when I was a teen and reacted to a Color Trend eye pencil - not good!

Fast forward a couple years and here I was eager to see how things have changed. Luckily it wasn't just the Arctic Goddess products being shown at the event, so I got to peek at the other permanent ranges like the foundations and lipsticks.
One of the palettes that caught my eye - gorgeous colours!
I decided to get my nails done by Marian Newman and chose the Arctic Goddess colours Sea Breeze and Green Goddess on top as the greens went with my outfit.

Sam & Nic of Pixiwoo were there to give lovely makeup advice as well as just a general friendly chitchat. We talked about the new Avon collection and how best it can be used as well as YouTube and names like Pixiwoo and Frootibeauty!
I went with Numera, Tanzina and Asmaa and we managed to get a sneaky pic in before meeting Alesha Dixon, Avon's Beauty and Empowerment Ambassador:
Alesha was absolutely gorgeous and friendly, explaining why she became the ambassador and how she supports domestic violence initiatives. She modelled the new Arctic Goddess blue palette (which I got to take home) and gushed about how she loves the Ideal Flawless foundation and perfectly nude nail varnish too; personally I think her natural skin is flawless, as a makeup artist I know a good base helps a makeup look look amazing, so that's her real secret!

I didn't get to take a proper FOTD picture but I have one pic that you can sort of see what I wore:
excuse the funny face!
The new collection is all very Snow Queen and icy but also slightly Mermaid-like too with the green nail polishes and second eyeshadow quad.
I got to take a few goodies from the new collection home:
I found the blue quad's matte colours to be more pigmented than the shimmery ones:
The Ultra Colour Rich lipgloss in Pink Icicle was surprisingly unsticky which I loved. The pink shimmer is sheer but the multicoloured glitter was pretty enough for me anyway. I also liked the thin applicator for precise application:
Finally, one of my favourite nail polishes from the range, Arctic Waters:
I do think my opinions of the company have changed as the quality seems to be a lot better than what I knew of it; I'm also quite impressed with the Supershock Gel Liner that I got to try out at the event and take home so looking forward to see if it lives up to the hype!

The Arctic Goddess collection launches in November and can be bought from an Avon rep (if you have one near you!) or online at www.avonshop.co.uk.

Have you tried Avon products before? What are your thoughts/favourite products?


  1. Wow you met the pixiwoo sisters! :) What is that eye palette called in the second picture? Thanks...Tasmia


    1. They were lovely too! And the eye palette is called the "Arctic Goddess" palette and that's it.. not too sure if the other palette is named differently but there's only two in the collection so the difference is clear as the other palette is more green =) x

  2. I love the look of the nail polishes. Do they chip easily? x

  3. Great pictures, looks like you had a lot of fun! :)
    Your make-up and the collection are beautiful. <3
    The quality of the Eyeliner from AVON is amazing.

  4. Your eye makeup looks stunning! Love the blue nail varnish... Wouldn't usually go for that kind of colour but it looks so vivid and bright!

  5. The collection looks lovely and you look beautiful mashallah x

  6. Masha Allah, you're such a beautiful lady! Love your makeup! The nail polishes look really nice :)

  7. I really love the Eyeshadow Quads from avon. The best part is that they're halal.

    If anyone here lives in Toronto, then I sell Avon there.


  8. You look gorgeous, and all the products look lovevely especially the palette.


I'd love for you to leave me some comments.. they make me happy!
