Review: Avon True Color Eyeshadow Quad in Purple Pop

Here's a review on Avon True Color Eyeshadow in Purple Pop

Price: P449.00
Bought From: Free

I owned a couple of Avon True Color eyeshadow quads before, but didn't really like 'em as much as this. I found them very chalky and payoff wasn't that great, but looks like they have improved the formulation already as well as the packaging. The palette I got is called Purple Pop, and it's a pretty bouquet of purple eyeshadow colors that will complement any fresh, pretty, youthful, or romantic look.


The previous True Color eyeshadow quad pretty much came in the same packaging, but the 4 inclusive eyeshadows were pressed into domed circles placed parallel to each other. The new version features flattened eyeshadows with numbers carved onto each color. I like this version better because in my experience, dome- shaped powder products are more prone to breaking.

The numbers were put there for your convenience. Each number tells you where to exactly apply what color: 1 is the overall lid color, 2 is for the lower lid, 3 is for the inner crease, and 4 is for the outer crease. You can also use number 1 as a brow bone highlighter.

Regarding the packaging, it's very sturdy and doesn't feel cheap, but the eyeshadows are not firmly pressed onto the pans-I could see a couple of dips and gaps on the sides of the eyeshadows and I'm sure, just one hard fall and this palette will not live to see the next daylight! Now you know that you must be extra careful when handling this product.

TOP (L-R):

1- An icy lilac shade with silver frosting
2- A pinkish lavender shade with sprinkles of silver shimmer


3- A warm, midtone violet shade with slight violet frosting
4- Dark violet shade with a hint of dark violet frosting

All eyeshadows are unscented, and have this uniform frosted finish. (Albeit 3 and 4 are borderline matte) Texture is very smooth, pigmentation is medium and can be built if desired but doesn't get to the point of looking vivid and bold, and the colors are true to the pan. There's still a hint of chalkiness with the powders, but it's quite forgivable- it's not as bad as the previous version. I also find that this version is much easier to blend on the eyes.


Here's a look I came up with using this palette:

Payoff is just very sheer and light. While I like my eyeshadows bold, this palette is perfect for any person who just wants to have a tinge of color to enliven their peepers, and for those who have no patience dealing with ultra pigmented eyeshadows.

Staying power is not so good on oily lids that's why I use an eye primer with it.

Eyeshadow can be a bit intimidating especially if you're new to makeup, but there are certain eyeshadow palettes like this one that are very newbie friendly, thanks to its sheer finish and moderate pigmentation. In conclusion, this is an okay palette with an okay quality and okay price. Best for daytime! Oh, I'd also recommend Purple Pop because the colors are very elegant!
