Throwback Thursday: Avon Lipstick Samples

As a preteen and teenager, I was really interested in makeup.  Although I liked light, natural looking makeup, I remember experimenting with different colors and brands in front of the mirror.  We always had a friend or neighbor who sold Avon, so the little catalogs and samples were fun.  I had not thought of these little Avon lipstick samples in years until I saw this photo ... and it brought back a lot of memories.  I loved these tiny lipsticks.  They were little and cute, and you could pick from a number of different colors!   Just seeing this pic takes me back to my early teen years.  Do you remember these little lipstick sample cases?  I'd love to hear from you in the comments, below.


  1. Oh definitely! My mom was a part-time Avon lady and my sister and I LOVED to experiment with the different shades of lipstick in this case. Plastic turquoise was the same case that my mom had! Thanks for the nostalgic memory from my childhood! :-)

  2. That is neat! My Mom sold Avon for a short time and I also remember the turquoise sample case!

  3. My mom was a part time Avon rep and I just loved when she took out that plastic teal case with the assortment of color samples from her Avon kit. Thanks for the memories!

  4. Melinee, that is a nice memory! Thanks for stopping by.
