“ Brand: Avon / Type: Eyeshadows / Suitable for: Eye „
This is an example of Color Trend aiming their products at the younger age range, ok when I say younger I mean teenagers. Being a slightly older age range I may get away with some of their products, but never in a million years would I get away with these.
I genuinely buy these for my daughter, she will wear and get away with these brighter colours, although I will admit to wearing the silver one. It is ok for a highlighter tone, the other colours (gold, purple and this blue pictured above) would really be me scraping the age barrel and desperately trying to capture my youth. The product itself is one of Color Trends good ones, they have a few really bad ones that should be avoided at all costs, but this powder doesn't differ from the other shadows the brand come out with.
Rather than the usual black packaging, this make up has a very bright and eye catching electric blue cover, with the clear lid, the blue eye shadow is the same colour as the packaging! It is ok to use, the silver covers well and doesn't pucker in the corner or creases. It stays on well and is very bright and bold. My daughter has used the blue and purple shades and has been happy with both of them. The blue seems to be a little harder to use than the purple, I don't know if it is pressed harder into the case but it doesn't come out as easily as the other colours. With enough perseverance it is usable though.
At the end of the day you are paying under £2 for make up it's not going to be Maybelline is it? Color Trend as a whole are ok, the odd product lets them down but I avoid the rubbish bits and make full use of the decent products they come out with.
In my opinion Avon should totally ditch their Color Trend range, it is of so poor quality and i'm always let down by their products. The range is very attractively cheaply priced and always appears very nice in the brochure, but the products are never what they seem.
This eyeshadow for example looks very bright and flamboyant in the brochure and all of the shades avaiable look unique and appealing. But then on buying the eyeshadow it arrived and was no where near as colourful and like all other Color Trend products i've bought it was poor quality. I bought the blue one personally but there are shades of pink, purple, yellow and even darker shades but i bet none of them look how they do in the brochure.
I had to literally cake this shadow on my eye lids for it to be even slightly bright and even then it wore off so quickly that by the end of the night it looked like i wasn't even wearing any eyeshadow. I would of been better off making my eyes up with a Crayola crayon! I'll not be able to review many more Color Trend products as i won't be buying them anymore!
This eyeshadow's defining feature is its supposed boldness, and that is certainly what led me to buy it. I have the blue shade that is shown in the picture. It looks great in the pot, but not so great on...
The product is of a dry consistency, and very tightly packed in the container, which makes it difficult to apply. This means that is hard to apply enough eyeshadow to get the bold and and vivid colour effect it promises. This is disappointing, as the colours look fantastic in the book.
The usual price of this eyeshadow is around £3.50, which is far too much for the quality of it. Spend an extra pound or so to get something similar from the Boots 17 range, and you will get a much better product. Having said that, the Avon 'color trend' products are often on special offer, and, at 3 for £5, for example, these eyeshadows might be just about worth it if you're on a tight budget.
I have this in Purple Pop and Gold Flash and think, considering the very low price that I got them for, that they are very good.
I bought them ages ago and unfortunately I haven't seen them around in the brochures for a very long time. Hopefully Avon will bring them back though, and soon because I have ran out now and they are an absolute bargain.
As well as the gold and bright purple shades that I have, there is also a bright blue shade you can buy, which is shown in the picture above that has been provided by dooyoo. I can't remember if there are any other colours although I think there may have been a silver available, but don't quote me on that because I'm not entirely sure.
These only cost me about £1.50 each and they seem to last for ages so they are brilliant value for money. The little containers they come in aren't that special but for the price I don't care about that at all. When these come with the Avon order they are still packaged in a small black cardboard box, just like all the rest of the colortrend range items are.
The eyeshadows come in some fantastic colours and I really love the two shades that I chose . They look good on their own or blended with others, or sometimes even blended together. They are bright and colourful so they aren't that suitable for school, work etc but they would be great for parties or clubbing.
The new Eyeshadow Brights from the Avon Color Trend range are mostly aimed at younger people. They include Purple Pop, Shimmering Silver, Electric Blue and Gold Flash. These eyeshadows cost £3.50 each and really are as bright and bold as the brochure leads us to believe they are.
I personally just dabbed my finger into the Purple Pop version of this product and let my daughter get on with the actual testing as I felt the shades were too bold and glitzy for an older woman like myself.
My daughter absolutely loved the vibrant shades and said that several people had commented on her bold look for the evening. She did note that she had to touch this up half way through her evening, and we both felt that the eyeshadow was slightly on the dry side, but over all this presented good value for money and offered something new and different to existing eyeshadow shades.
This is £3.50 each normally but is available as part of the three for £5 offer in brochure 18 so it is a great time to try it.
