Fifth Avenue CC Cream light-001
You may not know this about me, dear readers, but I love shopping at Kmart. I rarely come out of their beauty section empty handed, and now there is another brand there to tempt me! I was recently sent some products from the new beauty brand at Kmart – Fifth Avenue, and today I’m sharing my thoughts on them with you.
I received from Fifth Avenue CC Cream, Cream Blush, and a Gel Eyeliner pencil

Fifth Avenue CC Cream

I was very impressed with the quality of the packaging in the Fifth Avenue range. I like that the CC cream has a pump – foundations that come in bottles you have to pour from are just a recipe for disaster, and it seems to be common even in very expensive products, so they really need to take a lesson from Fifth Avenue.

Unfortunately, the shade that I received this in (light) isn’t right for my skin tone, but I’ve swatched it to show how it looks. The texture is nice, and it seems like it has decent coverage which I like in a CC cream. Fifth Avenue CC Cream comes in Light, Medium, and Dark, so hopefully one of these may be right for you!

Fifth Avenue Cream Blush

I love the packaging of this, like the rest of the Fifth Avenue range. Cream blushes are a product that I like the idea of since they work well on dry skin like mine, but are something that I don’t typically reach for. In the effort to be a good beauty blogger though, I have been wearing this  Cream Blush in the shade Gelati relatively frequently. It does look quite dark, but if you apply it lightly and blend it with your fingers it gives a nice colour to your cheeks.

Here I am wearing the Cream Blush as well as the Gel Eyeliner Pencil.

Fifth Avenue Gel Eyeliner Pencil

First things first, I honestly have no idea what makes this a gel eyeliner pencil. It’s a fairly standard eyeliner pencil formulation, which is always practical, but the name confused me a bit. I like brown eyeliner, I often feel that black is too harsh for me. I have swatched this below, along with the cream blush.

I was pleased to find out that the makers of Fifth Avenue cosmetics do not test on animals. All of the Fifth Avenue products retail for under $15 which is such a bargain. Prices for the products in this post are as follows:
  • Cream blush $11,
  • CC Cream $10
  • Gel eyeliner is $5

With these products I was sent a release showing a few of the other Fifth Avenue products, and the one that I like the look of the most is the Baked Eyeshadow Quad in Amethyst which is only $9.00

Kmart Fifth Avenue Baked Eyeshadow Quad (in Amethyst), RRP$9.00 (2)

Thanks to Kmart for sending me these products! I’ve enjoyed using them, and I think I’ll be picking myself up some more from the range before long – probably this weekend, since I can’t seem to keep myself away from the great bargains there.

Have you tried anything from Fifth Avenue? Can you recommend any of the products from the range? I always love reader shopping tips in the comment section 🙂
