Hey everyone! Thanks for stopping by my blog.
Today, I’m just going to share with you two makeup products I picked up from a bazaar last weekend. We were supposed to go to the flea market but they were closed. So, as we were driving on our way back, we saw a bazaar sign. Long story short, very happy to find this random community center that hosted this event.
First of all, it’s indoor and with air condition. Yay! One thing you would hear me complaining over and over again is the summer heat.
Anyways, I’m going to do a quick first impression review today for you guys. Here they are:-
So, let’s roll …
I don’t remember owning any Avon makeup products before beside a vintage fragrance I got awhile ago. You like to know what I’m talking about, head over to my instagram, girls. I’ve heard of Avon brand per say when I was in my teenage years but most of the talks among my aunts were quite negative that make sense why I never own this brand before.
I was skeptical at first but was completely sold when I saw the packaging of this beautiful sunny embossed product in a nicely packed compact powder.
Frankly speaking, I’ve quite a few bronzer lying around lazy in my drawer. Yes, I don’t need another bronzer that for sure. In fact, just last weekend, I started to pull out my favorite bronzer from Wet n Wild to wear over the weekend and have been reaching for it since then. It’s summer and what better time than to contour, highlight and bronze up.
This bronzer comes with a nice brown compact packaging and a decent size mirror on the cover. The packaging is nicely made but the formula is one thing they need to improve on. Otherwise, it would be a good product to have.
Who wouldn’t, right! It’s so pretty and it’s summer after all. Sadly,the pros stops here.
Although, I paid $4.00 only for this glow bronzer, thank goodness! I wasn’t impressed at all with the formula.Some of you might liked it and raved abut it but honestly, it’s definitely a miss for me.
The texture is rough and not creamy at all to touch.Pigmentation is okay but it doesn’t wow me. I feel that it’s too powdery and a lot goes along the way. You definitely need to dab a lot of products in order to get a decent finishing look. By then it was too glow-y for my liking.
Here is the swatch directly from the pan. You can see how golden shimmery this bronzer is up closed.
The shade of this Glow Bronzing Powder has more shimmer and fragrance than an actual bronze color do. Yes, it smells really nice but it doesn’t perform to what a bronzer should. It lays down quite a bit of shimmer instead of actual bronzing color.
Overall, I’m quite disappointed with this product. It contains too much luminous effect for a bronzer. Laying it would make skin glow like a disco ball. One last thing, I like to put it out for you, is that it’s lacking in terms of staying power. I was at home the whole time to test it out. I was out to pick up my kid from school by car and that was not even 2 hours of wear, all the glow has already faded.
Conclusion: I really want to like it but it feels like a cheap formula to me. I would not recommend this. In my opinion, I think you could find a much better product from the drugstores for the same price if not cheaper. That’s all I have to say about the glow bronzer.
Next is the quad eyeshadow palette.
Many of you might have already know that I’m obsessed with palettes. So, as you can see here, I got one here with me to share my thoughts and opinion on.
One thing I wanted to mention is that I haven’t heard much about Avon eyeshadow that much and thought of giving it a try. Yay! I was excited to try.
The True Color Eyeshadow Quad in Mocha Latte is brand new to me. The shades in this palette include a Highlight (Champagne), Lid (Bronze), Crease (Brown), and Define (Dark Brown). The shades don’t have specific names, as it’s named after the purpose for each color.
I really like the packaging. It comes with a decent size mirror and a dual-ended sponge applicator. It’s of a sturdy compact packaging with Avon logo printed on the lid.
Available in thirteen pretty shades at Avon online for $12.00. The texture is smooth and easy to blend although I noticed that the matte shades kicked up some powder. Averagely pigmented. There are two mattes and two satin finish in this quad.
They swatch okay but not over the top or that you have to rush out and get it. If you like Avon products, then you would like it.
My dream palette consists of more neutrals, because I tend to go for a more basic eye look while working up my lips with reds (gotta have my reds)! So – I’m really hoping that one day we can have customizable palettes or quads from Avon! Seriously – how awesome would that be!
I hope this post is helpful and interesting. Let me know what you want me which product reviews you like me to do next? Comment it down below.
Thank you again for stopping by to read and I’ll see you again on my next one. Bye!
