Something New: Avon You Make It Beautiful

Happy Monday everyone!  I hope your day started out right!  
Over the weekend, I had fun going out with baby Kyle and Mr. AMW and I'm glad he's such a good boy enjoying his time in his new stroller! 

Because it is such a busy Monday today for everyone (especially to me), I will be keeping it light by sharing the newest makeup I received from Avon!  I'm not sure if some of you have seen Anne Curtis' newest Avon commercial but I definitely like their newest makeup products!  Do you want to see them?

I wont' be writing an in depth review for now as I will just be starting to use them, but for the benefit of YOU who are excited to know how pigmented these are or how pretty their colors are, I'm sharing you some swatches for you to have an idea which item you may want to get!

True Color Eye shadow Quads

 Avon True Color Eye shadow Quad 
in A102 Chocolate Sensation

1 Shimmering Beige
2 Milk Chocolate
3 Truffle
4 Black Brown

These shades are perfect for daily use!  The shades remind me so much of Urban Decay Naked Palette. Pigmentation of all 4 shades are good, they glide on easily even without eye shadow base.

Avon True Color Eye shadow Quad
in A501 Emerald Cut

1 Shimmering beige
2 Softened Peach
3 Green Metal
4 Blackened Emerald

This palette works better on girls with medium to light skin tone.  I call this palette a Japanese makeup inspired palette as the shades are the ones you usually find in Japanese cosmetics like KATE by Kanebo.  

Shimmering Beige reminds me so much of Stila's Kitten eye shadow.  Both 1 and 2 works so well to highlight the brow bone and inner corners of the eyes.  3 and 4 is quite tricky to apply as it may come out dirty if not applied properly!  For first time users, I suggest to use 3 and 4 close to the lash line by creating a natural-looking liner.

Avon True Color Eye shadow Quad 
in A902 Vibrant Spice

1 Gold
2 Lush Lavender
3 Shimmering Copper
4 Caramelized Plum

This palette is perfect for girls who aren't afraid to use vibrant colors!  Though the shades are a bit wild to look at (on palette), the swatch is quite toned down and wearable on a daily basis.  Shade Gold and Lush Lavender reminds me of a MAC eye shadow in Bright Sunshine and Rusty but the version of Avon is more toned down.

 Avon Ultra Glazewear Lip Gloss
L-R Pink Watermelon, Mauve Movement, Rich Raspberry, 
Fiery Red and Tangerine Gleam

These glosses excited me the most as seeing them reminds me of a lipstick in a gloss form!  Meaning, I imagine them have good pigmentation at the same time non-sticky.

So far, I'm right!  I tried using 2 out of the 5 tubes and they are indeed very pigmented, true-to-the-packaging shades and are non-sticky!

L-R Pink Watermelon, Mauve Movement, Rich Raspberry, 
Fiery Red and Tangerine Gleam
My favorite among the 5 is Tangerine Gleam!  The shade is quite unique and gives a bright statement but stays wearable even on casual days.

I have tried so many Avon lipsticks and all I can say, they deliver!  In terms of good pigmentation, moisturizing factor and wonderful shades to choose from!

 Avon Ultra Color Lipsticks
L-R Carnation, Hibiscus, Country Rose, 
Tangerine Tango and Lava Love

L-R Carnation, Hibiscus, Country Rose, 
Tangerine Tango and Lava Love
Just by swatch alone, Carnation, is my ultimate to-go-to lip color for natural looking lips, Tangerine Tango and Lava Love is something I would wear if I have no makeup on and yet I want to make a bold statement.

I have good impressions with Avon's newest makeup line!  I can't wait to give them a try and review them for you!  Any shades or particular product you want me to review or (if I have the chance) create a look?

  1. Chocolate Sensation looks so nice for everyday!

  2. we don't have Chocolate Sensation here in Malaysiaaaa.. U__U But even if we do, I think it won't show up on my skin :( I saw the lip glosses and OMG they do look creamy, non-sticky and crazy pigmented!

    1. Well, I agree with you, some of the shades won't show up on certain skin tone! And yup, the lip glosses are wonderful!!!

  3. The Vibrant Spice quad looks very pretty!

    1. I agree, it is a type of palette wherein you can create various looks! :)
