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.
Looks using all 5 shades:
These palettes will be available as of October 2013 through Avon Independant Sales Representative, 1-800-265-AVON, or online at www.avon.ca.
