Hello Beauties !
I feel like i have been doing so many reviews but the truth is i have so many to do , i just dont know where to start. I feel like its been a while since i did a makeup review , so i decided to do a review of Avon's eyeshadow quad i got for free from a magazine here in Greece. Do enjoy and let me know your thoughts and any requests you may have.
Avon True Colour Quad in Lace Electric.
The great thing about us here in Greece is we get fab goodies from magazines. I can remember in England there was rarely a time you would get a full sample free, the only free thing was the samples within the magazine. Boo!! This quad was free from a magazine but i cant remember the name of it , anyway i must say i love it and felt it reminded me of Chanel's quads.
To start off with this quad normally retails around 10 euro but its usually always on offer. This palette has a white , purple, dark purple and grey colour. These colours scream to me smokey eye and winter warm eyes. I have been using the white especially for the inner corners of my eyes and my brow bone and the darker colours to blend in my crease.
These colours last as long as Chanel's quad's palette does, yes of course you cant compare Chanel with Avon but the truth is the eyeshadows are just as long lasting as they are. The only thing that lets me down is the colours , i would love to see more exciting colours like Chanel has and more exciting names for each shadows. A metallic, shimmer, glitter, matte and so on line or even palettes that are like Benefit's that have instructions and the perfect colours to create a smokey eye.
The mirror and packaging is fantastic and so is the little applicator brush that comes with it. The shadows are a generous size and are not powdery or crumbly. The only thing i find with Avon here in Greece that i dont like is the prices, living in England so many years Avon was really cheap and sometimes when i see in the catalogue they have their nail polishes 8 euro i always say why buy that when i can get a OPI , Esie for another 2 euro. In my opinion Avon's eyeshadows, lipsticks and nail varnishes are the best.
Thats everything from me girls , let me know whether you liked this review and what products you love from Avon.
