Avon Wrapped in Velvet Eye Shadow Palette in CRUSHED VELVET
What is it?
A luxurious in feel palette of 4 super shimmery shadows and one dark powder liner. This product is $10.00 and can be purchased at www.avon.com or through an Avon representative.
The Real Deal:
The shadows are extremely shimmery and have little to no fallout. They are almost slightly sticky feeling but go on nicely. This is a shadow that you need to pat on and then blend. Swiping this on is not an option because you will pull a lot on your lid. There are many options for looks with this palette. You can create a shimmery day or night look. This comes with a basic elongated sponge applicator.
Swatches from bottom to top are taken from left to right shadows in palette
This was created using swatch 1 as a highlighter, 2 all over the lid, and 3 in the crease and blended out on the sides of the upper eye area.
This was created using swatch 1 as a highlighter, 2 all over the lid, and 4 on the outer corner of the eye and blended into the middle area of the eye.
This palette is perfect for the holiday season from Thanksgiving on through New Year’s. You can create myriad looks using this one shimmery palette. Sometimes shimmery shadows can leave fall out all over your face. However, this shadow formula has very little if any fall out issues. Furthermore, the colors are very vibrant in pigmentation whether or not you use an eye shadow primer. I really like the color choices in this palette. However, if you like silvers and blues the other color option: VELVET SMOKE has you covered!
Quality: ****/5 (The formula is very nice for a cheaper shadow.)
Perks: There’s no added benefit
Bang for your buck: ****/5 (You get a good amount of product and an applicator)
Disclaimer: I purchased this with my own money and I am not being paid for my opinion.
