Buzzworthy: Avon Eyeshadow Quads in Romantic Mauves and Earth Tones

I've been hearing good things about the Avon eyeshadow quads for a while now so I found it an opportune time to check them out since there was a special going on. I bought these two Avon quads for $8.99 (a two for one special) so at $4.50 a piece, I thought this was a great deal! The packaging is a pretty and sleek black plastic compact with a mirror. The look of the compact does remind me a little of how the Chanel quads look. The quality of the shadows is nice- definitely not as nice as Chanel, or even Urban Decay or MAC for that matter, but they are pigmented and blend nicely. I will say that the colors in the catalog look slightly different than they do in person. Over all, I do like these quads and think they are great quality for an even better price.
I did a look with the earth tones quad that I think came out nicely. The eyeshadow stayed on all day at work, which I love. I'm also wearing Rock and Republic All Nighter blush and the Cremesheen lipglass I bought from MAC, Ever so Rich. For those of you wondering about the cremesheens, they are very very sheer. I do love this look worn alone (perfect for a smokey eye), but this is the kind of lipgloss that looks best while trying to mute down a stain or lipstick. The cremesheens also feel super soft on the lips and is not as sticky as the regular lipglasses. But if you are looking for high pigment and shine, this is not what you're looking for.
