Avon True Color Matte Eyeshadow Review

Avon True Color Matte Eyeshadow Review

Are you in love with the matte eyeshadow?

I know that matte makeup is currently a HUGE trend going on in the world of makeup!  There are matte lipsticks, nail polishes, foundations, bronzers and eyeshadows, and matte, I don’t even know what else.  I can understand the appeal of the matte look, after all it looks really chic and put together, it has a more staying power, plus it’s also less aging on the more mature face.  Though, I’m really not sure about matte eyeshadow…

When Avon released their own line of matte eyeshadows, a few months ago,

I decided to give it a try.  I was going to order one of each of the 5 palettes from my demo book, but decided against it, just in case I didn’t like it.  I ended up just ordering one, the Desert Sunset palette.  I’m no makeup artist by any means, but I’m a fan of makeup and I like to try different beauty trends and looks.

I tested the palette for the first time and really didn’t like it.

First of all, it felt like I was applying chalk onto my eyelids.  It didn’t look very blended, and I guess I didn’t see what all the hype was about matte eyeshadow.  But, I’m a pretty fair person and wanted to give it more than one chance.  So I tried it a few more times. I got better at the application of the shadows, and honestly, it didn’t look AS BAD as the first time I tried it.

I guess it’s an ok look, I like to wear it now,when I’m going for a more natural look.

 

But honestly, this girl needs a little bit of shimmer on her eyes!  And, to be fair to matte eyeshadows across the world, I know that it may just be this specific brand of shadow that I’m using.  I could try another brand and find that it blows me away, and become a fan of matte eyeshadow.  But as far as reviewing Avon True Color Matte Eyeshadow, I would rate it a 3 out of 5.

Disappointed!

By Bee from San Antonio

 Pros
  • Good Value

Cons

  • Difficult to Apply

Best Uses

  • Special Occasions
 Comments about True Color Matte Eyeshadow Quad: I ordered in two colors and don’t like either one. Colors are too vibrant and do not blend well. I tried several different times using a brush or a sponge applicator. I had to wipe some of it off and use another brand/color to tone it down. I do not have a heavy hand when applying and have not had this problem with other brands. I definitely will not be buying more of this product. Very disappointed!
