No. I am confident enough to know what works for me and I loathe Avon products anyway.

No. I hate Avon products to begin with, and can get the same thing at a Dept Store counter without buying $75 worth of product.

Me too, but I'd buy Avon before I bought from Mary Kay

Nope. I already know what colors look good on me. I bought Avon for the first time in my life from a friend who started selling it about 6 months ago to help get her started - I bought things like the travel jewelry box roll, a couple rings and body wash. I do not really care for much of their stuff.

Only if a professional color analyst was going to do it. An ordinary Avon rep would not know how to do it properly. Just a ploy to get you to buy stuff.

I had a wonderful color analysis done years ago. It took over an hour and was very informative. I discovered what colors went with my skin, which colors to avoid, and I was given a custom booklet with snippets of the best colors for me. She cut swatches out and made the book right there for me! I still use it.

Its nice to know Im not the only one who still believes. Most peeps now days think its crap cause they havent experienced a real one by a professional color consultant.

And I wouldnt take the Avon lady's advice as gospel . I wouldnt go by what the cosmetic counter girls say either. They both want to sell what they have. If you have unusual coloring chances are they dont have what you need.

I dabbled in it some myself way back when. I prefered doing the proportion dressing, accessory etc part myself. But its been years since I did anybody so Ive forgotton most everything but my own stuff. Im an Autumn BTW.

I would, because I love AVON products and I would spend 75.00 (if I had it!) Not sure I really need a color analysis though, my wardrobe is pretty straightforwad. I don't wear many different colors. and I don't wear blush or eyeshadow, so it won't be that helpful to me.

Sounds like the consensus is that the color analysis option would add no incentive to purchasing $75 worth of Avon products, assuming you buy Avon anyhow. While the Color Me Beautiful concept was born in the 1980's, I don't feel it's outdated because certain colors are more flattering to one's skin than others. Some look better is warm tones; others in cool. Some people don't care and that's okay, too.
