Avon reveals its latest beauty breakthroughs.
Cutting-edge Calling Avon reveals its latest beauty breakthroughs.

Straight from their revolutionary research & development labs at Suffern, New York, come Avon's newest and finest skincare, makeup and fragrance offerings for Spring/Summer 2009. The beauty brand recently gave the press a preview of these items, which are guaranteed to be pivotal members of the direct-selling bigwig's already-sumptuous cosmetics roster.

First in the unveiling drama was its Anew Clinical Advanced Retexturizing Peel (P1000), which literally promises skin perfection in a jar by way of its special, glycolic-peel-mimicking ingredients, all in a convenient, cotton-pad formulation. Derma-holics can now indulge in a spa-grade facial without the hassle—and the extra bucks.

Next, guest makeup artist Lala Flores demonstrated the brand's latest and hottest summer colors on celeb endorser Angel Locsin, highlighting Avon's new Ultra Moisture Rich 24K Gold Lipstick—with real 24-karat gold!—that heralds this summer's trend of rich metallics.

VJ Luis Manzano and multi-hyphenate Nikki Gil also provided the energetic faces for the brand's final product introduction: Just Play. The fragrance, which comes in two formulations, has a youthful, carefree vibe that perfectly echoes the freshness and vigor of a hot summer. Just Play for Him has crisp, citrus-centered notes with a touch of spice, while Just Play for Her, a fresh floral, is a feminine bouquet of tea and sandalwood.

Angel Aquino hosted the afternoon's festivities which showcased a remarkable blend of business and pleasure, staying true to Avon's thrust of quality and, of course, value for your peso, a trait not to be overlooked in these tight-pocketed times.
