Quick Pick: Avon True Colour Eyeshadow Duos in Warm Cashmere & Crushed Orchid

Left to right:  Warm Cashmere, Crushed Orchid

Despite finding Avon's new True Colour eyeshadow quads distinctly underwhelming, I'm quite impressed by the True Colour eyeshadow duos.  At £6, they're a little more expensive per shade than the quads, which are £9, but the quality is much, much better.

Warm Cashmere
The colours are soft, not chalky, and whilst they lack that buttery gorgeousness more expensive brands have in their shimmering, metallic shades, they do blend well.  Warm Cashmere is a lovely, wearable duo of a slightly pinky champagne colour, with a warm shimmering beige-y brown.

Crushed Orchid
Crushed Orchid is a pretty duo of a silvery toned lilac and a deeper rich purple which almost looks navy in some lights.  Pigmentation on Crushed Orchid is particularly intense - these swatches are a single swipe with the included foam applicators - and while Warm Cashmere isn't quite so strongly pigmented, it's still pigmented enough to get easy payoff when applying it.

As with the other bits and pieces from Avon's new makeup collection, these launch later this month at the Avon website, costing a very reasonable £6.
