Avon True Color Eyeshadow Duo in “Spacey Silver”

January 5, 2014

It’s not often I splurge on an eyeshadow duo from Avon, since I often steer towards MUA palettes or Elf but this one took my eye and I took a gamble.

Although the picture doesn’t quite do this justice, this duo is a beautiful shimmery silver and a darker grey colour.



A little underwhelmed by the silver-grey swatch on my arm, I gave it a go anyway and recently wore these two for a Dakesis gig. I was pretty surprised at how well they went on and actually are fast becoming my go to colours for stage wear. The darker colour blended beautifully and the silver added just enough sparkle without making me look like a drag queen or a “backing dancer” on stage.

Overall I’m pretty impressed with this duo and it hasn’t resigned itself to one of my many drawers of cosmetics, instead staying in reach on my dressing table!

This was a limited edition duo from Avon, but I’m sure they will bring this back sometime in the new year. You can check out the other colours from the True Colour range here at a slightly more expensive £6.00 although I think I only paid £4.00 for mine.

Totally hellbent for surprising shimmer!

    I really wish that Avon was more consistent with keeping products in their range, it’s happened to me so many times that I’ve really enjoyed a product only to find that it was only available in 2 books and then gone. Xx

    It is a little irritating, especially if you find something you like! I’ve noticed they are quite sneaky and often “launch” products that are exactly the same but in different packaging though. Ebay is pretty good for finding older Avon hoards as well. :o)
