Advantages: Lasting colour, soft and smooth
Disadvantages: Clear lid pops out and the applicator can make the powder hard
I love Avon products, they do as the brochure states 99% of the time, they are cheap and cheerful and Avon is a very popular brand.
So what is Avon?
Avon is one of the main leading beauty companys aiming for woman, although they do have products for men, children and the home too. Bringing products to woman in over 100 contries they are competative in their prices and have great quality products.
Avon supports causes like breast cancer and domestic violence and these causes are in every brochure delievered. This has made and incredible $800 million for these causes.
With 6.4 billion reps delievering the brochures, one in 3 women look at an Avon brouchures however now there is online shopping too so everyone can have access to the Avon products.
Now onto the product.
True colours eyeshadow duo has changed a little from the picture above. The packaging has changed to the more modern and sleek design that Avon have been recently using however i have not had the eyeshadow duo in the new packaging.
I brought my eyeshadow duos over 2 years ago now and although i have only just opened my jade eyeshadow just recently my midnight blue shadow and my natural shadow have lasted for well over a year. Although the box states that you must use within 24 months of opening the product mine is still as good as the first day i opened it.
When i purchased mine it came in a dark blue case with a see through hole in the lid so you can see the colours of the eyeshadows in the compact. The lid closes very tightly so there is no chance of any of your other make up spilling into the inside and ruining the shadows and it is small enough for you to carry in your handbag for touch ups during the day. Inside the compact you get a double ended applicator and the eyeshadows are in two seperate compartments so there is no chance of mixing the two colours.
It comes in a lighter shade and a darker shade and although the darker shade is is very nice I use it more for the creases of my eyes and the outer corners to make my eyes stand out more. The lighter shade looks great on its own but also together with the darker shade for a more dramatic look. I have noticed that the jade colour and the natural browns colour are great as a day and night time look however the midnight blue is more of an evening look and can be a little over powering for the day.
The eye shadows feel very silky and smooth when you apply them to your eye, infact they almost feel creamy. They last all day when applied however if you are like me and like to keep the colour strong then i always take mine with me and touch up throughout the day.
The only downfall i have found is that the clear plastic oval in the lid of the compact does come loose after a few times you have used them and it can be annoying to keep popping it back into place. I have also noticed that on a couple of mine, after i have used the applicator provided the powder becomes very hard and not too easy to put onto the applicator.
I would recommend this to any woman that likes lasting colour, cheaper however still great quality and wants a brand that they can trust. When i purchased mine they was in the brochure for £3.00 at special offer however i have seen the prices go up and down since so you can be lucky and catch them whilst they are on offer to avoid paying more than you need to and Avon tend to have them on offer quite alot. With a new brochure coming out every 3 weeks im sure you will be about to find it at the lower price quite quickly.
Summary: Great little make up compact.
