Well, it looks like the only makeup products you will see reviewed on the blog here are eyeshadows because my work face right now is ONLY about the eyes! It’s interesting how all of us suddenly have very different routines now depending on how COVID has affected our jobs and daily lives. If your job has moved you to being at home, makeup is either non-existent or there to keep you presentable or just feeling good. If you work outside like me and have to wear a mask everyday, you can still wear all of the makeup you want, but I think eventually the focus ends up being on the upper half of your face! I never used to wear undereye concealer, but now that a face mask stops right underneath my eyes and allows one’s eye to zero in on that area, I make the effort in the mornings to make sure I look perky there! I have actually been using the Avon Cashmere Concealer because it is so lightweight and blendable. Once I’m done with the colour correcting, I can move on to the eyeshadow which for the last 2 weeks has been the Avon Glimmershadow Liquid Eyeshadows!
As fun and satisfying as it is to create an intricate eye look with various shades in a powder palette, I almost NEVER want or have enough time in the mornings to do that. I am not a morning person and oftentimes, I wonder how I got from Point A to B which is somewhat terrifying. Thankfully, I tend to wake up by the time I am driving, but suffice it to say, I need a fairly foolproof makeup plan in the mornings!
What I love about liquid eyeshadows is one how fast and easy they are to use to achieve a put together and how long-lasting the formulas (generally) are. These Avon Glimmershadows are no exception and I didn’t even need primer to have this shadow stay on my eyes all work day long! There are 15 Glimmershadow shades and I am sure they will add more as I think the formula is solid and there are definitely more eyeshadow shades and finishes I would like to see!
While the doe foot applicator doesn’t lend itself to precision application, I have found that the best way to apply these is to blob with the applicator and then blend with my fingers. The formula doesn’t dry incredibly quickly, so I don’t need to stress about getting it done fast. I also like adding more depth to the look by applying a darker eyeshadow to my outer V so even if the blending job is pretty messy, smoking out the look with a powder shadow fixes it all!
The five newest shades I was sent are all very neutral and wearable for everyday maybe with the exception of “Tigers Eye” which is a bit more dramatic, but can also be easily blended out.
Final verdict: I was super pleased with the performance of all the shades and though I was expecting more of a shimmer to these eyeshadows, I still enjoyed the metallic finish and most importantly how well these held up to an entire day without creasing. These also fulfill my requirement of being a no-brainer in the mornings as all of the shades are easy to wear and don’t require too much effort on my part to apply and have it look good!
