Avon is releasing a new eyeshadow formula this month - and I just knew I had to try them out. These are jewel-toned cream eyeshadow pots that claim to be crease proof , waterproof and last up to 18 Hours. I got two colours in the range - the purple called Inspired Iris and the gold colour Liquid Gold.
So first off ... Let's discuss the formula and eyeshadows before I dive into the two colours I got. I expected the formula to be a little creamier. To be honest the eyeshadow in the pot is a harder formula than I expected. You'll definitely need a flat brush to pick up some of the product to pack on. BUT ... Having said that - once you start applying this eyeshadow a few times it does get easier to use. This eyeshadow really is crease proof and lasts forever (even without an eyeshadow base). Which I'm pretty impressed with . As I mentioned before - I apply my make-up early mornings - and was really impressed when I take this off around 20h00 at night - my eye make-up still looks perfectly applied. Which for me is pretty impressive . The colour intensity doesn't fade , and it really doesn't budge until you decide to remove it with an eye make-up remover.
There's a total of 5 colours in the range , a red/pink (Crimson Tide ) , purple (Enduring Iris ) , grey (Glistening Steel ), gold (Liquid Gold) and green (Deep Amazon). All with the most gorgeous sparkle.
So onto the two colours I picked. I will most definitely be picking up Glistening Steel. Now let's take a look at the two colours I got. Swatches will be at the end .
Avon Mega Effect Eyeshadow Pots in Inspired Iris
Inspired Iris is a gorgeous rich deep purple. When I picked the two colours I just got this one to try out another colour - in the end this one turned out to be my favourite. I mostly only wear nude eyeshadows - but since I gotten this gorgeous purple colour I LOVE wearing some colour. The colour lasts all day - which is awesome since most pinks and purples tend to fade super quickly on me. I just dab on a little bit of this colour , a lilac liner in my waterline and tons of mascara and I can't get enough of this easy eye look to do. If you like wearing colour - this one is a must.
Avon Mega Effect Eyeshadow Pots in Liquid Gold
Liquid Gold is a gorgeous white toned gold colour.I love using gold eyeshadows to warm up my skin tone and for more natural days. Sadly - since I love Inspired Iris so much - I don't wear this one as often as I like. But it's a gorgeous colour none the less. Especially when paired with a more dramatic lip colour or for more natural make-up days. What I love to do on days that I prefer a no-make up look is to just use this , a little mascara and I'm good to go.
Now onto the swatches of these two colours -
Overall I'm pretty impressed with these eyeshadow pots. They do take a little bit of work at the beginning - but they deliver gorgeous results.
