Hi loves! hope you are all doing good :) I finally moved out from the old apartment, but I still need to go back to Netherlands for school, but its okay. The most stressful part is over, which was the move.
Now lets get into today's post, which is on gorgeous Avon True Color Eyeshadow Quad in shade Underwater Paradise (5 g). Its my favorite quad from them at the moment and I have got tons of complements when I have been wearing these shadows.
The packaging of it is standard Avon compact (black) and inside it has 4 eye shadows, applicator (which I have tossed) and a mirror. I personally find it bit big, its just my personal preference. I like everything to be as sleek as possible ;) makes it easier to store.
Mostly the shadows are nicely pigmented, only the light green is not as nice and is bit powdery. There are 2 shimmery and 2 matte eye shadows. This palette at the first glance seem bit too much and my first thought was how can I use these shadows all together. I did manage to use 2 shades from the palette together. The matte blue I used in the outer V and in the crease and all over the lid I used a golden green (second shadow from the top). These 2 shadows went together surprisingly well.
On the left you can see all the shadows swatched. As I said before the first shadow is the most disappointing in this palette. Others are way better pigmented and also the formula feels nicer. I just can't handle powdery shadows.
The staying on power with a eye shadow primer is fab (I always use some kind of eye shadow primer under my shadows). I didn't experience any creasing and the shadows lasted through out the day nicely.
I have been using it for a month (maybe more) and these shadows didn't irritate my eyes, not even once and I have very sensitive eyes. Also these don't have any scent to them (I don't know why they would lol), so all beauties can enjoy these.
I'm so in love with this quad and think its perfect for summer time, the colors are just beautiful. It would have been perfect, if the pastel green shadow would have lived up to my expectations. It would have been perfect shadow to wear on spring/summer.
Which are your favorite eye shadows at the moment?
