Double duty products for your eyes - Elizabeth Grant The Socializer and Avon Anew Eyeshadow and Primer Kit!

Elizabeth Grant The Socializer - 2 x 2g - $40 - is clued into the concept that the eye area has different needs for day and night that can't be addressed in just one cream - what you get is two click pens in one package:  Bright Lights - the morning treatment, uses Mica, a mineral light diffuser to instantly brighten; and Late Nights -the evening treatment, contains Ulva Lactuca - a unique algae that helps improve the skin's elasticity and support fibers, Matrixyl - increases collagen synthesis, reduces the appearance of wrinkles and regenerates skin, Allantoin - relieves irritated skin and Chamomile - to soothe and calm the skin.

And how much do you love the packaging!  Not only is it cute, it's super portable and there is nothing I love more then a click pen!  The product itself has a light texture so the only thing it wouldn't be good for is super duper moisturizing if you tend to be really dry in the eye area.  It did do a great job of making the mornings after of a couple of wild nights look not as scary as they normally would have!  I don't think I would use this as part of my everyday routine as the amount of product you get is small, but with the amount of partying I do, these should last me a long time (Christelle would go through them in a week) and they easily fit into your clutch if you aren't planning on coming home that night (Christelle)!

The Socializer can be purchased on the website:
Avon Anew Youth-Awakening Eyeshadow and Primer Kit - $12.99 - available in 6 shade combos: sunset pink, spring green, smoky violet, soft mauve, cinnamon shimmer and shimmering dusk. 3-in1 kit includes a lifting primer that instantly fills in fine lines and makes eyes look lifted, a smoothing shadow and a highlighter.  Formulated with Anew Poly-Lifting Technology to help visibly shape eyelid contours.  The advertising claims that this product will make your eyes look up to 5 years younger and I don't necessarily disagree with that - a primer is an excellent tool to smooth and fill and a light shadow shade for highlighting is great for opening up the eyes and giving you a more awake look which instantly takes years off!  I have to say that this is a great eye primer - I will have to check and see if Avon sells it on it's own because you would probably run out of primer before you ever used up this shadow.  I have also been using this primer under other eyeshadows and have been really impressed with the staying power it provides!

You can get it online at or here's some exciting news - one of our readers was kind enough to contact us and let us know that she is a rep in the GTA  - so if anyone is looking for a really friendly supplier for your Avon needs, be sure to contact Elaine!  Here is her info:
