A collection launched this month, Avon's 'Holiday Sequin & Shine' is all about glitz and glamour. I was lucky enough to receive (don't hold that against me :D) a great deal of products from the collection, for review purposes, and I have to say that all-in-all, I'm really impressed.
True Colour Eyeshadow Quad in 'Glitz and Glamour' - 11 Euro
The impressive thing about these eyeshadows is the staying power. They literally last all day on the lid, and they don't crease either. Somehow, I'm telling you- once applied, they stay put! They're not too powdery in formula, which means no crazy fall-outs, they're somewhere in between satin and powder finish, except the blue shade which to me looks quite satiny. To Be Continued (below)
Nailwear Pro Nail Enamel in
'Gleaming Gold' and 'Mercury Metal'
- 8 Euro each
These apply quite sheer, so a minimum two-coat application is in order. Fortified with diamond dust and acrylic, these will give you a 10 days lasting result, as Avon states. Unfortunately I didn't get the chance to try them properly, but will keep you guys posted on the results in due course.
Glazewear Sparkle Lip Gloss in 'Violetta Sparkle' &
Glimmerstick Diamonds Eyeliner in 'Flashy Copper'
8 Euro each
Ahem...Please allow me a moment to confess something. You all know I'm a beauty snob when it comes to lip glosses, I am just not a fan and I can be bitchy towards them sometimes :(...however I ADORE this particular lip gloss!!!!!!!!! Such a perfectly natural shade and such a perfectly 'bang-on-on-the-money' formula, it blows me away! Not oily, sticky but just in the right amont, I actually feel my lips more plumped after using it, and because it's a natural shade and close to my lip colour, I can even cheat and outline my 'God given' lip contour....'Violetta Sparkle' I LOVE YOU! And I will defo get a back-up for this to use in my 'pro' kit (I'm such a show-off :P).
The Glimmerstick however, doesn't impress me much. I don't know if it's the shade or the consistency, I just apply it but I can't get a visible result with it. While soft and easy to glide on, there's something about it that doesn't click with me personally.
DAY MAKE-UP LOOK:
- Light shade of eyeshadow in the inner corners and brow bone
- The purple shade on the crease and outer corner 'V' shape
- & Glimmerstick on the upper lash line
+ my beloved 'Violetta Sparkle' *winks*
