Jillian Dempsey Interviews With Marta Walsh

Jillian Dempsey seems to have the best job in the world. She is a top Celebrity Makeup Artist and AVON’s Global Creative Color Director a position she took since 2006. She is married to actor Patrick Dempsey so the mystique about Jillian for me is major. I feel she adds greatly to AVON’s makeup collections bringing to us beautiful makeup inspired by her work with Hollywood celebrities and fashion. Yesterday I was given an amazing chance to get to ask Mrs Demspsey some questions about the latest from Jillian Dempsey for AVON makeup line and AVON’s Spring/Summer 2011 makeup and AVON’s Bridal makeup looks. BTW Did you know lipstick is the best seller product at AVON and AVON just turned 125 years and their moto is all about INNOVATION.

Marta Walsh: As Avon Global Creative Color Director how do you go about deciding which products are worth creating or re-creating for example the NEW Jillian Dempsey For AVON professional corrector palette and Jillian Dempsey For AVON professional eye smokifier?
Jillian Dempsey: It’s a combination of understanding the latest technologies, what women want, and my experience as a Makeup Artist. This how we come out with the latest and greatest products for AVON.

Love to the Fullest By Reese Witherspoon Perfume For Avon

Love to the Fullest by Reese Witherspoon Eau de Toilette Spray for Avon is a sensual or should I say warm blend of black cherry and evening primrose mingled with sandstone and cashmeran. It’s an Oriental first mixed with a bit of floral notes. That is, the warm and oriental notes are the dominant makeup of this fragrance. A plus for me because I’m an oriental warm type of perfume girl myself. The bottle is somewhat understated which actually is balanced well with this bolder scent. Love to the fullest perfume is part of the Expressions By Reese Witherspoon perfume collection which also includes: Laugh often By Reese Witherspoon (available May 2011) with citrus floral perfume notes and Live without regrets By Reese Witherspoon (available August 2011) with floral fruity perfume notes. Which Expressions by Reese Witherspoon might be you? Perhaps you are all three depending on your mood? Please do let me know:)

Body Refining & Cellulite Treatment Skincare. It is summer time and probably many of you are spending more time in your bathing suits. Now there is body care that targets cellulite and maintaining firmer skin. Here are the picks:

L to R: Elemis Body Sculpting Lipo-Refining Serum is a luxurious and super light gel that is easily absorbed into skin. The serum is cooling and calming. According to Elemis: “Designed with a Lipo-Refining trio of Marine and plant extracts….selected for their effectiveness to reduce the visible signs of cellulite”. LIERAC Paris Morpho-Slim Firming slimming concentrate. According to LIERAC: “Flat stomach. Refined waist”. Although I wouldn’t skip my gym, both serums feel cooling, calming and nice on the skin. I like to use them more as preventative than actual treatment, because I don’t have cellulite (please don’t hate me). I use anti-aging skincare for my face, why not my body. Just a thought:)

One hair styling product I took on my recent trip to England was Avon Advance Techniques frizz control lotus shield! This frizz controlling serum protected my hair during my 9 hour flight to London, humidity (can you believe it was hot and humid in England!!), and of course occasional rain (4 seasons in one a typical English day). I can feel the product working right a way, my hair feels smooth and actually even looks glossy, as if the moisture and softness was locked in.

More plus: lotus shield feels gentle on my hair and smells great and I don’t need to use harsh chemicals to keep my hair straight. Lotus shield is quickly becoming my best friend, travel companion, and a bad hair days saver. I faked a freshly blown out hairdo for 3 days in England, and I even managed to steal hair compliments from the Walsh family. Success:)

Avon Advance Techniques frizz control lotus shield

I’m already a huge fan of Avon Advance Techniques Dry Ends Serum and their haircare line in general. This is why I was super excited to try their latest product addition: Avon Advance Techniques frizz control lotus shield. I’m absolutely blown away with how great this product works on my hair to control frizz for days, and I mean days.

My hair is wavy but I like to keep it straight most times and I’m always on the lookout for hair styling products that keep my hair straight and frizz free especially the second and third day. See, because of my busy schedule I normally don’t wash my hair every single day so I need a product that will help my hair keep fresh for at least 2 days after my first blow out. Avon Advance Techniques frizz control lotus shield does all that!
