EOTD with Avon Cocoa Dreams

In my latest Avon hauling you could see one of their new eyeshadow pallettes called "Cocoa Dreams" which all seemed great workable shades for everyday and everynight. Last week I wore this look to work - a very light simple one.

The eyeshadows are a combination of nude, purple and gold.

And here we have the lovely quad, which if you look at it this could pass for a Chanel quad... Avon definitely knows where to get their luxury from. For starters I used the light purple colour with Sigma E60 all over my eyelid. This colour was a lot sheerer than expected and hardly shows up, it leaves a light satinfinish wherein no purple can be found. As my creasecolour I choose the khakigold colour with Sigma Angled E70 which has more pigment. On the lid it turns out as a gold rather than a khaki colour.

Then I used the light beige colour with Sigma E55 as a highlighter under my brow and in my inner corner, which you can hardly see as it matches my skin tone pretty well. It leaves a very subtle sheen. Afterwards I blended the shades with my Sigma SS217/E25.

Lastly I used Diorshow Iconic mascara on my upper lashes and as an eyeliner the Velvet Touch Liner from Gosh in the colour Brown (I always do half a line as I have quite big eyes in case you're wondering - it suits me better).

I'm eager to try the darker brown colour and hope I won't be disappointed. I'll do a review with proper swatches of the quad soon. Have you tried any Avon quads and what are your thoughts on them?
