As I'm sure you know by now, I am a complete sucker when it comes to a good neutral eyeshadow palette (a girl can never have too many neutral palettes). From soft and subtle to smoky and sophisticated, a good neutral palette can easily take you from day to night any day of the week. Well, neutral lovers rejoice, because today, I have not one, but two of Avon's new 'Perfect Nude Shades True Colour Eyeshadow Quads' to share with you.
Retailing at only $10 CND/each (trust me, they are a total steal), the new Avon True Colour Quads combine four rich, neutral, co-ordinating shades, perfect for creating a variety of stunning eye looks. Marked with numbers 1-4, each palette provides a step-by-step guide to applying the shadows (1: brow bone, 2: inner corner, 3: outer corner, 4: lash line)), but those, who like me, like to break a few rules, can throw caution to the wind, creating their own personalized look.
While I'm not always the biggest fan of drugstore-priced eyeshadow palettes (I find the majority to be chalky, dry and not very pigmented), Avon's newest True Colour Eyeshadow Quads are incredibly well formulated with shadows that are very well pigmented, incredibly soft (they feel like silk) and easy to blend.
I've been using both 'Perfect Nude Shades Eyeshadow Quads' for the past month, and can honestly say they are worth every penny. Below is a closer look at all of the shades contained in each palette:
Avon Perfect Nude Shades True Color Eyeshadow Quad in 'Naked Truth'
A shimmering light beige (almost white), this shade makes for the perfect brow-bone highlight (I've been using this particular shade every day for the past month).
A soft, shimmering light peach with golden undertones, this shade makes for beautiful inner corner highlight (I also like to place this along the lower water for a brightening glow).
A soft brown with strong rose undertones and a slight sheen, this shade is definitely my favourite, and works beautifully in the crease, warming up any eye look.
An icy, cool-toned taupe with subtle olive undertones, this stunning colour makes for the perfect all over lid shade (add a touch of mascara and liquid eyeliner and you are good to go).
Avon Perfect Nude Shades True Colour Eyeshadow Quad in 'Grin and Bare It'
A shimmering golden-bronze, this shade looks amazing placed on the centre of the lid creating a beautiful glow.
A deep chocolate brown with copper undertones, this shade is perfect for creating a daytime smoky eye.
A deep olive with golden undertones and a light sheen, this absolutely stunning shade look great worn all over the lid.
A dark, cool-toned chocolate brown, this shade makes for a great eyeliner both on the upper and lower lash lines.
Grin and Bare It
With four gorgeous, co-ordinating shades (you can definitely get a whole eye look with each of these palettes), these amazingly well formulated quads are a neutral lovers dream, and definitely worth a closer look. The new Avon Perfect Nude Shades True Color Eyeshadow Quads are available on the Avon website as of the beginning of May.
