EVENT: Avon Luxe Fabulous Finish Primer | Watercolour Painting!

Our lives keep getting busier, as we try to cram more and more into every week, every day, every hour. Multi-tasking products are a dream come true for busy women like myself, so I was quite pleased to be introduced to the new Avon Luxe Fabulous Finish Primer. We celebrated this primer launch at a studio in The School, Rosebery and were treated to a fun watercolour painting class!


Watercolour painting relies on having the right canvas, and having primed up skin can also help our makeup artistry. This Avon Luxe Fabulous Finish Primer is wonderfully glowy and infused with anti-ageing serum, but also has oil-absorbing, and line and pore filling properties. Talk about multi-talented.

We began by filling our plates with delicious bagels, and how flipping cute is this bagel wall of dreams.

We then took a seat and were so stunned with the incredible treats on our table, that looks more like art and decorations than food! A teabag biscuit, like whaaaat.

The teacher took us through the colour wheel to start us off. We then were officially given ‘play time’ to experiment and NOT make an artwork. The goal was to not make an art piece, but just have fun. It also involved swapping our paintings around the table and adding more layers and paint to others. Sounds scary and intimidating, but so nice to just let go and enjoy the process. The workshop crescendoed to us having to paint the poppies that we had on our tables, and I was actually kinda impressed with how mine turned out!

On to the product, introducing the new Avon Luxe Fabulous Finish Primer. Although this event was all about promoting this new product, nothing was actually said about it at all! It was a little strange, but I didn’t mind too much since the goodie bag had a great little write up in it and I enjoyed spending the morning relaxing, letting go and just enjoying some creative expression.

    What a lovely event!! I don’t use a primer – I’ve had a go of a couple and they just seem to make me oily so I’m going to persevere with not using one. Haven’t used anything Avon for years but I still look through the catalogue when I get one.

    What a fun event – I wish I could have made it! I love that it was more about the experience than the product too, and those bagels! 😀 x

    Inspired combination of activities at an Mel – your artwork is stunning! Haven’t tried any Avon products for ages, must get back into the brand again – I used to buy their stuff all the time in my teens xxx

      Thank you so much Kat!! I’m a bit of a watercolour noob, so that means a lot! One of my favourite past times as a teen was going through my Mum’s Avon mag’s and telling her all the things I wanted (I never got all of them, lol, thankfully. Those products add up quickly!).

      It was so therapeutic! Do you do anything similar, like drawing or playing music? Would love to know your favourite relaxing/unwinding activities 🙂

        I used to do oil paintings as a hobby. I was totally addicted to doing landscapes and Barrie. 🙂

    Wow, what a unique and fun event! I won some Avon products a while back so I’m using a couple of those, otherwise I hadn’t used any in years!

      It was such a cool event! Let me know if you have any Avon favs, I generally don’t buy any Avon products anymore.
