As Avon says, “While each stroke is designed to bring out what’s naturally fabulous, it’s your uniqueness that creates the impact that can’t be forgotten. In short, You Make It Beautiful.” With Avon’s True Color technology, expect vibrant and wearable colors that’s true to the shade you see on its packaging. Check out the entire collection with their swatches and my initial review.
True Color Eyeshadow Quad (PHP 449)
Avon’s most coveted eyeshadow now has new formula, new shades and new packaging. It’s available in 6 eye-popping palettes with numbered shades to guide you. I’ve only tried one palette out of the three that I have, but I must say they’re pigmented! They glide smoothly on the skin too.
Here are 3 eye palettes and their swatches:
A501 Emerald Cut
1- Shimmering Beige
2- Softened Peach
3- Green Metal
4- Blackened Emerald
The shades of Emerald Cut will look best on fair to medium skin tones. Shimmering beige is a good highlighter on the brow bone area and inner corners of the eyes. If you’re in a hurry, Softned Peach can be used alone as a wash of color on the lid to brighten up the eyes. Blackened Emerald can be used as an eyeliner.
A102 Chocolate Sensation
1- Shimmering Beige
2- Milk Chocolate
4- Black Brown
For those who are into neutrals, like me, you’ll love this! The black brown can also double as an eyeliner. This palette can also be used for smoky eyes.
A902 Vibrant Spice
2- Lush Lavander
3- Shimmering Copper
4- Caramelized Plum
For those who are bold and want an eye-popping color, Vibrant Spice is a nice palette to play with. I was surprised how pigmented the individual shades are! 😀
Ultra Glazewear Lip Gloss (PHP 299)
1- K106 Mauve Movement
2- K02 Pink Watermelon
3- K301 Rich Raspberry
4- K303 Fiery Red
5- K405 Tangerine Gleam
Think of lipstick in lip gloss form, that’s Avon’s Ultra Glazewear Lip Gloss. For a lip gloss, it’s really pigmented and true to the packaging. It’s non-sticky, but quite heavy on the lips. I love how it doesn’t settle in between my lip lines and how it moisturizes my lips.
Among the 5 shades I have, I tend to pick up Tangerine Tango the most! The orange shade is just so perfect even for day use! 😀
Ultra Color Lipstick (PHP 379)
The Ultra Color Lipstick comes in 13 vivid shades. The ingredients, such as shea buter, omega oil, arctic berry, and vitamin E, keep lips moisturized. Looking at the swatches below, these lippies are really pigmented. It starts on sheer, but it’s buildable until I get the shade that’s true to its tube.
L-R: I04 Carnation, I101Country Rose, I109 Hibiscus, I401 Lala Love, I305 Tangerine Tango
My ultimate favorites would be Hibiscus and Tangerine Tango. They brighten up the face in an instant! I also like using Carnation for that natural-looking lips. 😀
