Avon Eyeshadow Quads: Shockingly Good

There use to be a time when the Avon lady would ring my doorbell and I would run and hide. Anyone else? I mean seriously, if you ring my doorbell or knock on my door, I won’t be answering. Unless of course you are Mr.Fed Ex, Mrs.UPS, or a friend. Thankfully the Avon lady doesn’t want to chat anymore and just simply leaves a pamphlet which I always read. Anyways…I was sent some eyeshadow quads from Avon and I was kind of shocked by how much I liked them. To be honest, I associate Avon with my grandma who is awesome, but we kind of have different taste. WITH THAT SAID….holy smokes (yes I said holy smokes, get over it Tera), the Avon Eyeshadow Quads are freaking awesome and they are only $7.00 each! I got more pigment out of these than most high end eyeshadows that I use. I would actually carry these in my makeup kit because the pigment is that good and the eyeshadows are pretty big. I am telling you, this is me being excited. One last thing, the casing is not cheap looking, it won’t fall apart if you breathe on it.


I haven’t done a YouTube video in a while. Which one of these looks would you like to see re-created?

Avon Spice…you have my heart. This is going to be on my eyes for Thanksgiving.

Avon Steel Blues Eyeshadow Quad has a very winter-ish feel to it. It’s lovely. What do you think?




I loved how vibrant the Purple Haze Eyeshadow Quad was, especially number 3.


Which one do you want to see re-created in a tutorial?

    How do you get the Avon Quad shadow to look so brilliant and intense? What type of base is under the shadow?

    • Hey Sara! Thank you so much for you comment : ) It has been a while since I did these tutorials…but I usually add a disclaimer if I use a primer. With that said, I love Urban Decay Potion Primer…it’s my go-to!
