Exclusive Interview with Avon’s Creative Color Director Jillian Dempsey


I’m Not Obsessed met with Jillian Dempsey, Avon’s Creative Color Director, for a inside look at what’s going to be in stores for Spring/ Summer 2010. Jillian has been doing makeup for stars like Reese Witherspoon for many years so she brings her expertise and knowledge to Avon’s extensive lines.



One of my favorite things about Avon is their Duos and they did not disappoint. Their Spring/ Summer offerings are chockful of fun duos that complement each other’s purposes. The Jillian Dempsey for Avon Professional Concealer Duo is a double-wand concealer. One side has a brush and the other is a spot concealer. My idea of the perfect concealer would be one that camouflages discolored regions but still hide pimples and other spot problems. This tool is ideal because the spot concealer puts the product directly on that problem area and the other side of the tool blends the concealer in.

Avon’s eye makeup for this season comes in bold, sexy shades. The emphasis is on liquid eye makeup, as opposed to solids or creams. Their SuperSHOCK Vivid Liquid Eyeshadow is enriched with Vitamin E and richly pigmented for a look that stands out. Available in iridescent tones of green, gold, pink and maroon, this long-wearing eye shadow can be worn lightly for a subtle look or layered for a sensual smoky look. My two favorite duos are the Jillian Dempsey for Avon Duo Eye Enhancer and the Anew Lash Transforming Mascara and Serum. The Duo Eye Enhancer is everything you need for dramatically defined eyes. On one end is the highlighting shadow. You can sweep the color over the entire eyelid and blend upward. The second end is a liquid eyeliner that delivers a clean, perfect line. This eyeliner is long lasting and waterproof. I love this duo because I’m (not) obsessed with mascara! I never leave the house without it but I often wonder what daily use can do to my lashes. On one end of this duo is a Fortifying Serum which prevents lash breakage, strengthening the lashes and leaving them looking healthy and beautiful. The other end is your everyday mascara. This duo is the answer to your lashes’ prayers.


These products are expected to be available in time for Spring and Summer through your favorite Avon representative or on www.avon.com.
