Avon True Color Eyeshadow Quad

Hi all makeup lovers on IMBB!

I have been reading all these great articles on the blog and found these articles to be very helpful. I have learnt a lot here and bought even more stuff after reading these reviews ;)

Avon True Color Eyeshadow Quad

Avon True Color Eyeshadow Quad

I recently bought a lot of Avon makeup and the eyeshadow quad is one of them.

Avon eyeshadow quad is available in 4 different shades.  The shadow Quad I have is Romantic Mauves.

What AVON says about the Product

• Creamy smooth powder blends to a silk velvet finishing in luxurious living colour.
• Shade, contour and highlight, all-in-one!
• Dome shape for quicker colour pick up. With a bigger brush and wide mirror for extra room.

Quantity: 5.6g

Price: Rs.499. Since it was on discount when I bought it, I got it for Rs.350.

They  come  in a classy black casing with AVON inscribed into it. The casing has a mirror inside. It comes with a dual sided sponge tip brush which is great for lining along the lower lash line. The brush would do a decent job if you are not carrying any other brushes. The back of the casing comes with instruction on the application.

• The 4 shades are named: Pink Slip, Mauved, Silver Plum, Gold Plum. The eyeshadows are powder eye shadows  and have  satin finish. The colors are great for everyday wear. They have a very smooth n slight shine to them and Gold Plum has a slight shimmer to it. But even then it is very subtle. The quad has shades of different intensities that can work well for a powerful  plumish look. Also these colors look nice on Indian skin.

• The color pigmentation is nice. They are not crazy pigmented.  The pigment is quite buildable. The swatches here are one or two swipes.

• The eye shadows are of good quality, there is very little  fall out when you apply them. They are not chalky.

• The packaging is easy to carry around.

• The colors blend easily into the skin n into each other.

• I end up having oily eyelids after few hours, but on top of a base, it stayed really strong till upto  5 hrs.

• 4 good quality shades for 350(or even 499) is pretty nice.

The things I don’t like about this Avon Product

• The color and textureof the eyeshadow looks different in the book to what they actually are. This is what it looks on the website.

• The plum and mauve colors are too similar to each other and on applying could be hard to differentiate. Also in a way because of the same reason you cant get very dramatic.

Will I repurchase it? Yes, It’s good quality, great color for an awesome price. I am really happy with it. I plan on buying the brown shade in this now.

Actually they dont have all these shades in India yet. They only have 4 of these. Purple Haze, Fresh cut greens, Mocha Latte and the one 1 reviewed here Romatic Mauves. I hope they come up with more of these here.

Hi Neha…Go to Avon’s India website and click on “Find a Representative” and I’m sure you will be able to find someone.
