Packaging is important when it comes to just about anything, but especially cosmetics. Many women use their cosmetics in public, on trains, in washrooms etc and it's important that whatever you pull out of your makeup bag doesn't look ugly or juvenile etc etc. Personally, I am not the biggest fan of the packaging for this quad, it's a little busy for my taste. However the colours are perfect for the collection and for the season, so I don't mind too much. It's not something I'd be embarassed to pull out in public for a touch-up.
The colours in the quad are stunning. A range of blues which fir the brief perfectly. My only qualm is that the colours in this palette are perhaps not suited to all women. Those with brown eyes would pull this look off beautifully, whilst those with lighter eyes would need to work a little more with the product to achieve a wearable look. Alesha Dixon - who is the face of this collection - proved that this palette can be used to create a stunning winter time look and the colours complemented her caramel complexion beautifully.
Check out the pigmentation of these colours! This is what I find most impressive. Avon were not known for producing the highest quality in eyeshadows which is why I am so pleased with this palette. The colours are vibrant and striking - even the lighter, shimmery colours. Overall, I think it is fair to say I am a happy bunny when it comes to this release from Avon, the pros definitely outweigh any cons for me!
What are your thoughts on the collection? Would you wear these colours?
