The New Overnature Range by AVON: Swatches and Review

 "The new Overnature range from Avon includes 5 luscious lipsticks and a decadent palette, packaged with illustrative orchids.  Each of the 5 Autumn lipstick shades appears in incredible color and comes perfumed of purple orchids.  The combination of rose flower extract, pomegranate, peach and Vitamins A, C and E leave lips feeling petal soft."


Natural light.  From L to R:
Pink Lily, Bright Bellis, Cherry Berry, Tropical Coral and Orchid Fantasy.

Artificial light.

Pink Lily

Bright Bellis

Cherry Berry

Tropical Coral

Orchid Fantasy

The lipsticks were very easy to apply, very creamy and no need for multiple coats to get a rich shade of color.  The Cherry Berry is easily my favourite and perfect for our now Autumn and upcoming Winter.

"The Overnature palette are delicate soft hues of shimmering golds, a deep blue base for eyes and subtle pink tones for cheeks."

The eyeshadows were a little blah for me.  They needed several swipes to get a good color shade on my hand.  The blue does look brown in my photos, but it is a true navy blue.  The blushes were very nice, there is a very subtle rose pink and a warm coral.
The Avon Overnature range is available to purchase now, either through your Avon representative or by purchasing direct from the Avon website.  The lipsticks retail for $19.99 and the palette $12.99......but we all know that you very rarely pay full price for anything from Avon (wink, wink) so make sure you pick up a catalogue!

It's Been a Trashy Diva Week...and a Hiatus

I wore my Del Rio dress again but this time with BIGGER flowers, BIGGER Bakelite hoops, a BIGGER celluloid necklace and BIGGER rings.

Love my huge hair flowers by Uncle Fezter.

Big Bows Zebra in the Annette dress and Batman sunnies.

And my side ruffles Sadie dress with copious Bakelite and Miss L Fire shoes.
This blog has been rather quiet lately, due work commitments and a bit of stress reorganising our Bangkok holiday to Phuket.  As you know, their political system is in a mess and when the bombings started, our trip there was finished.  So, I am currently in Phuket camping on a tropical jungle island with no electricity or hot water!  (The island does have a restaurant and a massage tent so I think I will be OK....).
I do have a couple of posts scheduled but understandably I won't be answering emails or checking this blog until I return, but rest assured I will answer emails and your comments as soon as I can.

Fly Me To The Moon

So lovin' this Sci-Fi rockets print from Trashy Diva.  Unfortunately it's now been discontinued, but we had advance warning so I was able to snag the next size up for Miss we can all match for a little bit longer!
