Hello, gorgeous! I triple dare you to look at Avon’s brand new True Color Eyeshadow Quad in Chocolate Sensation and not fall completely, head over heels in love.
The entire Avon collection has been revamped and includes 55 shades of Ultra Color Lipstick, 23 shades of Ultra Glazewear Lip Gloss, 14 True Color Eyeshadow Quads, True Color Eyeshadow Duos and Singles, along with new Ultra Color Lip Crayons, SUPERShock Gel Eyeliner Pencils and even more. I have several pieces from the True Color collection to review and I am really excited to share them with you because they are really as fantastic as they sound!
In my mind Avon has long been that cosmetics industry dark horse, the brand that isn’t always up in your face, but ends up having surprisingly awesome products. I’ve really loved using Avon’s eyeshadow quads in the past, and they’re even better now with Pure Release Technology that offers rich color that stays true to what you see in the palette. The new palettes also have a handy numbering system to help you figure out which color goes where!
The texture of these shadows are quite rich and saturated with pigment making these bargain shadows just as great as many higher-end, more expensive brands. For proof, just look at these swatches – they apply this well and stay true for hours on end.
To celebrate the True Color makeup collection, Avon has launched the “You Make It Beautiful” Facebook sweepstakes where 20 will win a fabulous Avon makeup assortment bundle. To enter, please visit the Avon Facebook page.
My Final Thoughts: Silky smooth and pigmented as all get up – I see lots of shimmery, smoky brown eyes in our future, Avon True Color Eyeshadow Quad in Chocolate Sensation.
