Avon is constantly launching beautiful new makeup but with so many products to choose from it can be difficult to decide what to try. Today I will be sharing a few fabulous finds with dazzling finishes that are perfect for all your summer soirees.
The Eye Dimensions Shadow Palettes may be small but they pack a bold punch of glitter enriched with Vitamin E. For the most part the shadows are silky, non-creasing and smooth with brilliant, eye-catching sheen. Although the longevity is decent, I highly recommend a primer for better adhesion, intensity and blending. You can also dampen your brush and apply them wet for a little more drama. Sweetheart Plum (bottom palette) is my favorite trio because of the iridescent garnet-purple with great color payoff. The middle hue is sheer and glittery requiring a few more layers to amplify and the silver has a matte base with sparse glitter and a drier sheer finish. Neutral Haze (top left) contains a beautiful frosty pink-purple, deep bronze shimmer and bright snowy silver which are all well pigmented. When you’re in the mood for something seductive, the Sultry Smoke Palette has a flattering contrast of sparkly grey, black and silver. These palettes are expertly coordinated, great for travel and retail for just $10.00 each.
For a quick, simple smokey eye using just one shade try Avon’s Midnight Shadow ($6.00). This deep navy with refined blue glitter starts off sheer and can be layered for more intensity. I apply it heavier on the lids, blend it lighter in the crease and smudge some under my lower lash line. It creates a stunning effect and the blue glitter twinkles in the light.
The new Cheek Magnet Hook Up Blush Compacts are available in a variety of complexion flattering shades including a few that aren’t in the bright pink spectrum. This Berry Minute (on the right) has a pretty rose undertone that is deep enough to create some contour and the shimmer is very subtle so the pigment still applies velvety and smooth. Mauve forward has a matte finish with a soft, rich texture that blends well and helps define. Both palettes are magnetized so you can click them together side-by-side or back-to-back and they retail for $18.00 each.
The Smoke and Mirrors Hook Up Eye Shadow Palette ($18.00) is another mini that is great for travel. There are 9 mix and match crease-proof shades that are blendable and silky. With a dazzling selection of multidimensional shimmer and glitter you can create many stylish looks and although the pigmentation is sheer, the shadows are buildable for more saturation.
The True Color 8 Shadow Palettes have been cult favorites for years and now there are a few new color collections to choose from. Smoky Nights contains all of the shades you need for an evening out including shimmery purple, gold, garnet, glittery navy and black. The color payoff ranges from sheer to medium and full-coverage so you can play around with different effects and go as glam as you dare. The palette retails for $15.00 and is small enough to slip in your purse.
