Avon’s Tropical Paradise Collection

Last week, I did some work for the launch of Avon’s latest collection called Tropical Paradise. The name says it all. The set is composed of eye shadows and lipsticks in vivid colors and textures inspired by the sea and current runway trends. Oil control pressed powders also form part of the collection.

There are 6 different lipstick shades that range from subtle everyday hues to more playful colors.

From top to bottom Lippies on the left: Rich Ruby Poppy Love Beyond Pink; Lippies on the right: Tender Kiss Toasted Rose Silky Peach

 

 

My favorite in the collection are the 2 eyeshadow quads. I must say I was very impressed. They are extremely pigmented! They also have very minimal fall-out and blend easily.

Left palette is called Aquatic Life with 3 matte shades, the top most being shimmery. The palette on the right is Precious Shells.  All shades are shimmery except for the deep moss green color on the bottom left.  The brownish shade beside it reminds me of MAC's Club eye shadow - it turns green/brow as it catches the light.

I used the Precious Shells Palette to create this smokey eye. I find this palette extremely wearable. It’s easy to play with the shades to create both day and night looks.
