Top 11 avon makeup products being discontinued in spring 2021

Are you an Avon makeup fan? If you stumbled upon this article, chances are you have specific Avon products in mind that you’re hoping are not on this discontinued list. While I hate disappointing my customers, it’s never long before Avon releases new products that are even better and trendier than those that came before.

Below are the top 11 Avon makeup products that are being discontinued in Spring of 2021 – plus recommended replacements for the products that have them available. Let’s jump in and take a look!

#1 Mega Effects Liquid Eyeliner

AVAILABLE UNTIL: June 8th, 2021, while supplies last

Mega Effects Liquid Eyeliner is one product I’m personally sad to see go. If you follow the blog, you might remember that I reviewed this product back in November – and found that I prefer it over other Avon liners. It’ll be hard to say goodbye – but such is life!

MY recommendation:

Glimmer Liquid Eyeliner

The fmg Glimmer Liquid Eyeliner is a liquid liner product launching on March 16th, 2022. 

As the only liquid eyeliner left in the catalog, Glimmer is the best choice for those who prefer that smooth, liquid application. Stay tuned for more details about this new product!

UPDATE FEB 2022: This article has been updated to reflect the discontinuation of my previous recommendation, the SuperExtend Precise Liquid Pen.

#2 Beyond Color Lip Conditioner

AVAILABLE UNTIL: March 30th, 2021, while supplies last

Beyond Color Lip Conditioner was a part of our Beyond Color line – most commonly associated with the discontinued Beyond Color Lipstick. Though it doesn’t provide any color, many Avon makeup fans use this underneath their lipstick to enhance lip health and conditioning.

MY recommendation:

Glimmer Lip Conditioner

The fmg Glimmer Lip Conditioner is a lip conditioner product launching on March 16, 2022. It’s formulated with several nourishing oils and extracts including mango and seed butter, vitamin E, jojoba oil, and sunflower seed oil. I think customers who liked Beyond Color will appreciate this new formula to help keep the lips soft and smooth.

Some folks who liked Beyond Color might also want to check out our 2-in-1 products that provide both conditioning and color – for example, the new FMG Cashmere Essence Lipcream. Quite a few of our new lipsticks have nourishing properties, so feel free to reach out if you’d like personalized guidance!

#3 Avon Beauty Caddy

AVAILABLE UNTIL: June 8th, 2021, while supplies last

The Avon Beauty Caddy was a fan-favorite way for Avon makeup lovers to organize their bathroom countertop. Unfortunately, it is time to say goodbye!

MY recommendation:

fmg Vanity Organizer

The fmg Vanity Organizer is a new and improved makeup caddy with a cute black and light pink design.

It’s a direct replacement for the old Beauty Caddy, and I think folks will love it!

#4 Pro Eyeshadow Brush

AVAILABLE UNTIL: June 8th, 2021, while supplies last

The Pro Eyeshadow Brush has been Avon’s only shadow brush in the catalog for quite some time now – and is my personal favorite eyeshadow brush out of all the brands I’ve tried. Luckily, a replacement was just announced in 2022!

MY recommendation:

Eyeshadow Blending Brush

The fmg Eyeshadow Blending Brush is a double-sided eye makeup brush featuring a domed crease brush and an allover eyeshadow brush.

I think customers will really like this replacement, as it features the same great quality with a bonus two brushes in one!

#5 True Color MATTE Eyeshadow Quad

AVAILABLE UNTIL: June 8th, 2021, while supplies last

The True Color Matte Eyeshadow Quad was a collection of bright colored eye shadow palettes with a matte finish. This product was a classic for several years, but unfortunately must be left behind as trends continue to change!

In spring of 2023, Avon will be launching 4 new matte shades of Glimmer Eyeshadow quad, making it a great replacement for the old True Color Eyeshadow.

The multifinish shades of this product have been available for a couple years now, and they are absolutely amazing!

#6 True Color Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Quad

AVAILABLE UNTIL: June 8th, 2021, while supplies last

Open compact of True Color Multifinish Eyeshadow Quad in the shade Purple Pop, against a white background

The True Color Multi-Finish Eyeshadow Quad is a collection of palettes in both shimmer and matte finishes. Like the matte quads above, this product has been a true classic due to its simplicity, quality, and wide range of colors. But, alas, it’s time to move on to bigger and better things in the eyeshadow department!

MY recommendation:

Glimmer Eyeshadow Quad

However much I loved True Color Eyeshadow in the past, the new Glimmer Eyeshadow Quads bring a whole new level of quality that makes True Color look weak by comparison. I recently demo-ed all 10 shades, which you can see by clicking the “get more info” button below. 

If you were a fan of the old True Color Eyeshadow Quads, you will definitely want to try out Glimmer!

#7 Pro Powder Brush

AVAILABLE UNTIL: June 8th, 2021, while supplies last

Like the Eyeshadow Brush above, Avon’s rockstar Pro Powder Brush is unfortunately being phased out. Luckily, a replacement is now available!

MY recommendation:

fmg Kabuki Brush

This Kabuki brush is Avon’s newest powder brush. It features vegan, synthetic bristles and is angled for easy application. It also has a cap to keep the brush part covered – so you can use it on the go without getting it dirty!

Personally, I hope Avon will launch an entire collection to match this brush in the future. But for now, not even us reps have the scoop on a full brush collection. Fingers crossed!

#8 Ultra Luxury Liners

AVAILABLE UNTIL: April 27th, 2021, while supplies last

The Ultra Luxury Liners have been a customer favorite for quite some time. In the past, this product was even discontinued and brought back again by popular demand. Unfortunately, this seems to be the final curtain for Ultra Luxury

Sorry – no replacements at this time.

#9 Pro Blush Brush

AVAILABLE UNTIL: June 8th, 2021, while supplies last

The Pro Blush Brush is leaving along with the rest of the Pro brush line, as you probably already deduced. Time to say goodbye!

MY recommendation:

Blush & Contour Brush

The fmg Blush & Contour Brush is a double-sided face makeup brush with an oval blush brush on one side and an angled contour brush on the other.

This is the best choice for folks looking for a quality blush brush – plus you get two-in-one brushes for a great value!

#10 Moisture Cushion Blush

AVAILABLE UNTIL: May 25th, 2021, while supplies last

Open compact of Moisture Cushion Blush, against a white background

The Moisture Cushion Blush is a more recent addition to the Avon catalog that has been part of our Avon x The Face Shop collection. Though it’s a great cushion blush product, it was never quite as popular as the recommended replacement below. As a result, it is being phased out.

MY recommendation:

fmg Colors of Love Kiss Me Cushion Blush

The Colors of Love Kiss Me Cushion Blush is a sheer-to-medium, natural-looking blush product that is also formulated with nourishing ingredients. It contains hyaluronic acid as well as antioxidants like water lily and green tea extract.

This product is similar to Moisture Cushion due to the application process and delicate color payoff.

#11 Pro Foundation Brush

AVAILABLE UNTIL: June 8th, 2021, while supplies last

You know the drill by now! Unfortunately, the entire Pro makeup brush line is leaving at the same time. Go ahead and try my recommended replacement.

MY recommendation:

Flawless Complexion Sponge

The fmg Flawless Complexion Sponge is an alternative way to apply foundation for those who don’t like using their fingers.

This makeup sponge has a soft, suede-like texture and is designed for optimal blending. Why not give it a try?
