What better time than their 10th Anniversary for me to finally try mark cosmetics from Avon. In celebration of their 10th Anniversary mark has released this 10th Birthday Beauty Collection filled with some quite impressive products at great prices.
First up are the Wonder Gloss Lip Shines ($12 CAD). These glosses offer a sheer-medium amount of pigment and are ultra glossy with no stickiness. They last for a couple hours on the lips depending on what you are doing. The fact they are birthday cake scented/flavoured means they may end up licked off your lips in no time at all.
Then we have the mark. Day 10-year Anniversary Eye Palette ($18 CAD). This is a really pretty palette of warm pinks and copper shades. There is a shimmering copper brown, a mauve pink that morphs to a coppery brown with pink iridescence, a peachy pink with gold iridescence, and a satin white. The formula of these eye shadows is very different. They feel incredibly creamy. So much so that they feel like a cream. They apply pretty sheer but build up nicely.
The Wonder Glow Blush & Glow ($18 CAD) is a very pigmented and creamy blush. They mention that it can also be used as an all over luminizer but I would have to imagine it is too pigmented for that even with a light had. The center mosaic is a cool toned frosty pink while the outer rim is more of a satin finish warm bronze. Blended together they create a shimmery warm rose that I can see being flattering on a variety of skin tones.
While not part of the 10th Birthday collection there is also a set of brushes being released in September called the Full Service 5-piece Pro Brush Set ($32 CAD). It contains 5 full sized brushes. The brushes are synthetic and very soft. I can’t speak to their performance as I haven’t had an opportunity to wash and test them yet.
