“ Brand: Avon / Type: Eyeshadows / Subcategory: Eye Colour / Suitable for: Eye „
Cute plastic case with four different cream eye shadows.
Case also has a mirror and a sponge applicator.
About 4 inches long and circular.
Bashful Browns (shown above)
Cute N Colourful.
Price varied with Avon but I bought when they were being discounted for about £1.99.
Currently you can buy them on ebay for £3.50 plus £2.70 postage.
These Colour Trend eye shadows were from the inexpensive Colour Trend range sold by Avon and were probably aimed at the younger market. However I have had both the Browns and Butterfly Frost sets and found them quite reasonable, long lasting and convenient.
The cute little packaging is a sort of circular tube which opens in half lengthwise. One half is filled with four different colours of eye shadow creams, while the other side contains a mirror. There is also a hidden drawer that you slide out underneath the mirror which contains the applicator sponge.
I must admit I had been using mine for ages before I realised there was this secret drawer!
The Browns vary from cream through to dark brown and the Butterfly shades are white, pink, purple and turquoise. These shades are solid cream and can be applied with either the applicator or fingers - I found fingers quite good for this product.
The darker shades are not very dark once applied but go on nicely and as I only bought these mainly to use the lighter shades as highlighter on my upper brow they worked fine for me. I used the cream and lighter brown shades from the Browns and the white, pinks and turquoise form the Butterfly set. A quick slick of this cream was great for days when I did not want to apply a lot of eye shadow but just had a little colour on my brows.
These were £4-£5 originally with Avon but they were occasionally on offer as 2 for £5 so I did buy some for my younger nieces as well. These are cute and compact to carry with you and great for younger girls.
Personally I found it quite difficult sometimes to get just a little light highlighter eye shadow so these little sets when on offer were the perfect answer.
The turquoise colour I used quite a lot through last summer when I was wearing a lot of that colour as well.
The Cute N Colourful set has colours almost identical to the Butterfly one, apart from the fact that they have a silvery blue shade in place of the pink.
These will not give you a lot of colour but if you just need a highlighter to go under your brows this will work fine, last for ages and comes in cute little packaging.
These were often on sale then discontinued and later re-introduced, so they may once again be found in the Avon catalogue.
===Would I Recommend?===
When I was an Avon representative there would often be offers on such as £3.50 each or 3 for £5 and offers off equally great value, I would go through everyone's orders and see of anything tallied up to the offers and I would often get free items from the offers, this eye case was one of the freebies I acquired.
The sets are from Avon so therefore you can only buy them direct from their website or from an Avon Representative and they costs around £3.50 but like anything with Avon I would say wait for an offer and you will get items much more cheaply. There are a couple of different colour ways available but I always use brown eye shadow and so went for the brown set.
The eye shadows come in a cute little plastic tower which is see through so you can see a cream one at the bottom, a gold colour follows and then a bronze before being topped by a proper brown colour. The case opens at the side where there are two little lips in the plastic, one pushes forwards and one pushes backwards and the case opens, inside there are the 4 eye shadows and then a mirror for if you are one the move.
I tend to use the brown or the bronze colours and I find they are really pretty colours and have a little sparkle to the colours, the eye shadows are easy to apply however they also rub off far too easily for my liking. The eye shadows are really creamy rather than being a powder and the brush that comes with them is perfect for applying them but I find a normal eye shadow applicator with the sponge type ends is not so good with the product.
The colours are much more striking in the case than they actually look on your eyes but I like my make up quite subtle so this is fine for me but some people may be disappointed by the colours. The case is handy for carrying with you for reapplying and it is only about an inch wide by 3 inches high. I give these eye shadows 4 stars as they smudge a little too much for my liking.
==why i bothered buying it==
I first bought it about three weeks ago and it has already gone it lasted me about six days. I bought it because I liked the look of the model eye that showed you it online at avon.co.uk but it looks nothing like that when you apply it your self. I looks like a beautiful bronzy ,brown explosion online but when you apply it yourself for the time it lasts on your eyes it looks horrible and greasy.
It has to be said that the quality of this eye pallet is awful. If you put one in the morning then it would probably last about 10 minuets before all gathering in-between your brow and your lid in a weird line. This looks really unattractive and I don't think anyone would like this product and if they do then I would struggle to find anything to like.
I rate the shades available a 2 out of 10 because there are only 2 sets you can get. You can get this bronze and brown one or also available is a purple one which I have also tried and it is just as bad and looks just as bad on as the bronze and brown one. So there are only two different pallet shades and they are both not very nice.
The price is quite cheap for four shades but not for the quality. It costs £3.50 to purchase one of these. I think that would be a brilliant price if the product was good and actually lasted on your eye lids for more that a few blinks.
Overall I rate this AVON flirty eyes (or not ) cocoa dreams eye shadow pallet a generous 3 out of ten because it's just not even worth buying it and if you do buy it then I can probably guarantee that it won't last ou very long at all.
Thank you for reading my thoughts on this awful product and I hope this review has been helpful to you.
I paid £2.25 for this pretty eyes case as it was on special offer for half price. Mine was the same as above but you can also purchase the case in other shades.
I wasn't impressed with this case. The eyeshadow is fine for five minutes but it soon creases and just somehow evaporates from your eyes, leaving hardly any trace of the eyeshadow! I found myself "topping" this up around five to six times per day as it was terrible quality and the eyeshadow just didn't stay on my eyelids.
The brush that comes with the case is just as bad. The first time I used it I think I lost around ten of the bristles as they just kept falling out of the brush. This was a little annoying and at one point I got one of the bristles into my eye and it hurt like hell!
It honestly looked like a five year old had applied this eyeshadow to my face. I used a primer with it to see if that would make a difference but it didn't, the eyeshadow just slid off without a trace (as usual). This is really bad eyeshadow. It also made my eyes itch a little and my eyelids looked quite red and sore when I removed the eyeshadow. I won't be buying these again. I seen them for sale at a car boot for 50p and no one was buying them, says it all really!
Oh my i'm so glad this is on here i was just about to suggest it. Anyway i use this everyday along with my brown or purple eyeliner even if i don't use anything else i use this. There mouse shades so there easy to take off and put on id pick moose over liquid or loose powder anyday. why? because they look so great on anyone!
I purchase this for about £3.00 It comes with a handy applicator but it also glides on good even when using with fingers.
The compact comes with four shades.
Gold - My favourite one. This looks great with my turqious eyes. its so soft silky and smoooooth looks great in the winter or summer. The gold is very bright and also musky.
Pink - This is a very dull pink it almost looks lilac and goes really well with the white shade.
Bronze - This goes great with any eye color i usually wear this with brown eyeliner. It's quite dark so be careful not to apply too much. and if you want to make it shine a little add abit of the gold.
white - This is very white but also has a silver tint i use this along with the gold and the pink shade i dab abit of it in the corners of my eyes for that bright eyed effect. It also looks great as base. oh, it also looks great with purple mascara!
I give this a 10/10 i've had my one for about 2 years and i wear atleast one color everyday! also when my friends can get there hand on it they always nick mine! Also its applicator is great and slots right in the back so its handy and small enough for on the go its a girls best friend.
I just had to write a review about this product. I use Avon all the time as i love there products, Sometimes im quite disappointed with what i buy but most of the time iam very happy and that is certainly the case with this product. Im not a big eyeshadow wearer well i wasnt until i came accross this product. What first attracted me to it was the colours, I like neutral and browns and as you get four shades in the case i thought i would give it a go, that was ages ago and i still buy it today. Its quite a small case with four shades, a little brush and a little mirror, Quite a lot for a little product. Its so easy to carry around and you have the choice of a different shade later on in the day/night and for the price of £3 what more can you ask for? I love this product and will carry on buying it as long as it is around. Well done Avon.
AVON COLORTREND PRETTY EYES CASE
The first thing that attracted me to this pretty eyes case is the cute presentation of how the case looks. The second thing that caught my attention was the cheap price. This comes with its own little brush and I also like that there are four different shades to choose from in the case instead of just one.
This only costs around £3 which really is a bargain. There are also sometimes some good deals on items from the Colortrend range, like 2 for 1, so look out for this being on offer to get the most from your order.
As a product from Avon you can only get this from either your representative if you have one, or at the Avon website but make sure you use the UK version of the website or you might get confused.
This was worth buying because I use it all the time. I wasn't sure if I would like that the eyeshadows are quite creamy but was surprised to find that I really do like them. They seem to last much longer on your eyelids than some powdery eyeshadows I have used. They actually feel comfortable and not sticky as you might expect. Everyone has their own preferences for what kind of eyeshadow they like and this is one that I found quite nice, try it out for yourself and you might like it, too.
There are three different cases of shades you can buy this in. Bashful browns is the one featured in the image above which has a nice cream shade, a nice gold and some darker browns. There is another one called Fresh and flirty which has some nice green shades in it and the last one, which is the one I have, is called Cute n colourful and has some lovely lilac and blue shades in it that I think all blend in together and looks quite pretty.
Overall I definitely would recommend these pretty eye cases because they were so cheap and they surprised how with how good they are. I am really happy with mine and in future might considering buying one again if I ran out, or maybe trying a different shade.
Everytime the avon catalogue comes through i vow i wont be taken in by the nice smelly pages and products. No matter how much self control i have i always convince myself the colour trend offer is too good to miss and end up coming away with three things for £5.
I picked a mascara (wasnt very clever!), Lipgloss and the colour trend pretty eyes case. The case itself is plastic and compact, inside is four sections of differant shades of cream eyeshadow. Although i wouldnt call the lightest one an eyeshadow as its more of a brow highlighter. You can use this product on your cheak bones as a bronzer too and even use the darker shakes to fill gaps in your eyebrows for a natural finish. I have had mine for about six months and use it often and still havnt used half of it as its long lasting and a little goes a long way.
The only negative about this product is that the cream tends to crease on my eye lids if i put enough on to make a dramatic difference, e.g. creating smokey eyes for a night out.
I would reccomend this product for anyone wanting an eyeshadow that doubles up for other uses.
I wouldnt reccomend it for anyone who doesnt have a big eye lid area as it will just clump up and crease.
Overall i was pleasantly suprised as usually Avon often disapoints me!
Avon's Color Trend Pretty Eyes Cases offer a great way to experiment with different colours without blowing your budget.
In each case, there are four sparkling gel eyeshadows in different shades and there is also a small brush included to apply the colours.
These are no currently available in the main Avon brochure. However, different shades often appear in the regular sales brochures that Avon release. For example, in the current sales brochure (number 18), the shades 'Cute 'n' Colourful' are available for £3. These colours are a deep pink, light blue, lilac and cream. There are many other combinations available and Avon do release more at times, it is just a case of buying them when you see them to build your collection. The usual price of this product is £5.
The product is easy to apply and the gel formula means that it glides on to the eyes without causing a creasing effect.
These are great products for anyone on a budget or for a young girl who is just starting to experiment with maked-up and different colours. Add them to your other Color Trend products for a great look.
All I remember about Avon is playing with my mums make up when I was little. Along with the bottles of bubble bath that are rippled down the sides. I had no idea that Avon was still in existence until my sister had a slight post-child-birth dabble in the Avon rep world a year or so ago.
Doing the dutiful sister bit I decided to invest several of my hard earned pennies (and it really was only pennies) into her venture and buy some products.
One of the products was Avons "colourtrend flirty eyes" referred to here as "pretty eyes."
This is a compac of 4 metallic shaded cream eye shadows in a cylindrical holder with a small eye mirror and integrated brush. It it in the design of the packaging that my first challenge laid. Now, usually I am pretty dexterous and not all that thick. But this wee lipstick sized plastic toob had me beat. The opening is on a "push one bit one way and push the other the other" system, if you catch my drift. The problem being that the pushy bits are far to small for adult sized fingers and a new product is far too stiff. After a ten minute battle I finally managed to get the container open.
Within I found the afore mentioned eye mirror, and the four shades.
The first shadow was a pink, almost lipsticky shade that didn't appear at all metallic. I actually checked within the brochure at the product description to see if it included a lipstick. It didn't, but i've still not used it and not sure that I would be tempted to.
The next shadow was a red-coppery colour which most definately showed the metallic qualitiesand the 3rd was a lighter version of this.
The 4th and final shadow which is my favourite is a creamy white which although not appearing metallic has a nice sheen when seen in the container.
I was mightily disappointed that the promised brush hadnt been included. (little things get me like that and ignite childlike wobbly chins with the disappointment of being denied a free brush.) I looked and I looked and I looked for where the brush may be. but Nope! no free brush. It was only 2 weeks later while absent mindedly fiddling with the product whilst on the line that miracle of miracles I flipped open the plastic lip at the end of the product to reveal a hidden draw behind the mirror!! I nearly leapt off the sofa in excitement at finding my long lost freebie but what a silly place to put it! A lable on the end to tell you could be handy!
So, I came to apply the product and what a faf that was!!!! the "creany" product was far to thick to spread and I ended up firstly trying to get enough on the brush to transfer to my eyes in teh first place and then trying to drag a big enough clump of the product across my eyelids to leave a reasonable covering of the product behind. Useless!!! The shadow was far to thick to do the job that it was supposed to do.
After a while of huffing and puffing I decided that i had enough on to atleast make it look asthough I was wearing eye shadow and as such headed out for some girly fun. On arriving at the pub (and i promise, not in order to make my mate buy the first round, honest!) I vanished to the loo. Looking in the mirror I was shocked and disappointed to see that the shadow had disappeared off my eyelids and formed in clumps in the natural creases of my eyes. The overall effect was more "end of the night after 8 southern comforts" than "beginning of the night pretty"
I have used this product twice since but only when I have lost my other shadows and the result has been the same each time. It remains in my bag purely for use of the mirror but the shadows will remain intact.. very disappointing. I usually try to remain impartial in my reviews and point out the good bits that others might like. but there are none.
As stated in a previous review, I love buying something new out of the Avaon catalogue when I get my greedy impulse buying hands on one - which isn't often and is my one big gripe with Avon, nobody seems to do it around my area and if by luck one pops up on my doorstep then it never gets collected. Frustrating, yes!
So when my man's new Auntie turned out to be doing Avon I was mucho excited at the prospect of ordering pretty things from there once more. The sister-in-law told me that she has this in a different coloured set to the one I decided to order and she really liked it. Okay, I'm gonna try it as it looks nice and will pop into a handbag easily.
I really should've thought more before buying it about how I've never liked creamy eyeshadows much, but I have had some great eyeshadows from Avon in the past so didn't dwell on that small fact.
What a mistake! Basically it goes on very sheer, great if you are 12 or don't like wearing obvious make up, but I'm 25, young enough to get away with bright colours and old enough to appreciate a good eyeshadow. I got the lilac coloured set, and at £4.50 it's not a bad price for four different colours in a funky kind of case. For me though, it was a waste of money.
I did like the colours in the case, I liked how you could pull out the applicator using the 'drawer' at the base of the hard case, and the little mirror on the inside (which opens lengthways) would certainly come in handy as this eyeshadow needs re-applying A LOT.
It's yet another eyeshadow that I gave away after trying out. I adored the colours as well, what a shame :(
Other than the case, and the colours the only other positive of this is that is easy to blend.
But the negatives, of the light coverage, and the creasing and wearing off quickly just makes it pointless imo. I don't want to be re-applying my eyeshadow every coupld of hours thanks, and those creases are just unsightly!
Should I give up on cream eyeshadows altogether? Maybe... but those twisty pen style ones I had from Avon years ago were fabulous, so maybe I'll just keep trying...
The Pretty Eyes Case by Avon's Color Trend is not in brochure 18 which does not surprise me. This costs £4.50 at full price and in brochure 18 there is a 3 for £5 offer on other Color Trend make up. Whenever these offers feature, the Pretty Eyes Case is not in the brochure. That is a little annoying for regular customers who need a replacement.
Although Color Trend tends to be a young budget range, I find that this product is suitable for all ages in the bronze shades. The pink, purple and turquoise version is possibly not suitable for those over the age of 20 though!
What I like about this eyeshadow is firstly the convenient packaging. The case is a round tube shape that flips open to reveal a small thin mirror on one side and a pallet of four eyeshadows on the other. The base of the tube can be slid down to reveal a little compartment behind the mirror where the eyeshadow brush is stored. This is great for on the go application.
The eyeshadows are all very creamy and smooth on easily with fingers or the applicator. They are very easy to blend and the shades included all compliment each other. Although this goes on quite thinly, it is noticeable and slightly better quality than some cream eyeshadows I have tried in the past.
This does not stay put all day, no cream eyeshadow I have tried does. But it does stay put for an evening and the handy packaging makes it easy and convenient to touch up where necessary. Sometimes this is available at 2 for £5 so that is the best time to pick up one of these.
