Avon Wrapped in Velvet Eyeshadow Palettes in Crushed Velvet and Velvet Smoke Have Wowed Me

I have a couple amazing eye palettes to show you today from Avon. I admit. I haven’t bought Avon in YEARS. Maybe I have a little bit of a prejudice against them. I’m not even sure where it originated. But I tell you my opinions are quickly changing. Just look at these beauties! The Avon Wrapped in Velvet Eyeshadow Palettes ($12.99 CAD/ea) in Crushed Velvet and Velvet Smoke.

Yes you can certainly end up with some duds from Avon. That’s really the case with any brand. But then you come across some gems like these. Yes the packaging is lightweight plastic and feels pretty cheap but the shadows. Ohhh the shadows are creamy, pigmented, and beautifully nuanced.

The eyeshadows just have such dimension and beauty that I hope you can see in these swatches. Not only do they swatch beautifully but they apply with just as much impact on the eye and have great lasting power. They will last you from breakfast until bedtime with a primer. These palettes also coordinate really well with each other. While you will end up with two matte black liner shades (I found these worked just as well as eyeshadows on the outer v and crease) you will have even more gorgeous combinations available to you. Four of the five shades are shimmer shadows. The fifth in each palette is a matte black that is wonderfully pigmented. Not something that happens all that often with matte blacks.

    These look awesome. I’ve always been really happy with my Avon products. I, too, used to have a prejudice because of the exclusivity and having to order through a rep (before they made their online shop) but they’ve got some great products and aren’t terribly expensive!

    Wrapped in Velvet is so gorgeous – but gosh, they need to change that packaging. Looks SO old school.

    Yeah, Avon from you and then deliver that much different in Russia, I wonder if we do this makeup Poland who the manufacturer is U.S. foreign analogue such as Mary Kay Cosmetics exact same, it would be interesting to know and hear and do not know whether these shadows?

    These are now on sale on the Avon website for $4.99 apiece!!! I picked up both. Also, I have heard that the GEL eyeliner pencil is also pretty awesome, so I picked up two. So for 2 eyeliners and 2 eyeshadow palettes I paid $27.00 (that’s with shipping). Pretty sweet deal!!
