Avon Cosmetics For The Woman Of Colour

By  |  0 Comments

Did you know Avon cosmetics reaches one in three women in the UK? Did you also know their range includes products for women of colour? Interestingly, Alesha Dixon who is a WOC is also Avon’s Beauty and Empowerment Ambassador.

We recently got our mitts on goodies which our tester, a WOC with a medium yellow based complexion, sampled. All the below are available online at http://avonshop.co.uk/.


For the Face

Avon WOC FoundationsIdeal Flawless Invisible Coverage Foundation In Caramel And Sable  The 30ml pump action bottle delivers liquid colour that you blend to the intensity you require. With built in sun protection factor 15. From 15 shades, we found at least six good for women of colour. £12.00

Avon Glow Bronzing Pearls In Warm  Complete with sponge applicator, the pearls are a combination of high and low lights. The result is quite red so use sparingly unless your natural skin tone is red. We couldn’t ignore the gorgeous aroma of these pearls. £5.99

Avon Glow Bronzing Powder In Deep Glow  A compact powder with shimmer effect. Left our model’s skin with ‘low’ lights.  The four shades are suitable for all skin tones. £10.00

For Eyes

Avon WOC EyesCosmic Eyeshadow In Purple Haze  Combines three shades in one tub for an out of this world look. Lilac, purple and beige blend to a fresh effect on our model. Use wet for an intense appearance. On sale at £4.99
