Summer is tour time for musicians, but it's tour time for beauticians, too. The Hello Tomorrow Avon Beauty Tour is on the road, making stops all over the States to showcase Avon's new cosmetic lines. It features eight stations where you can get a free lip makeover, a product-sampling bar with previews of the fall color collection, and a chance to scoop up product samples galore. I think it's a good chance to check out Avon's goods in a no-pressure setting.

The tour has already hit cities including Fort Worth, Chicago and Indianapolis, but many stops remain. Have you been to any of the events? What do you think of beauty events like this one—do they make you more likely or less likely to buy the brand?
