Avon Luxe Lace Christmas Collection – Lace Hues Palette

Posted by Lipglossiping On October - 12 - 2010

I was going to do one post that encompassed the entire Christmas Collection, but for the life of me, I couldn’t get a colour-accurate tube shot of the lipstick that I received in my goody bag.  So instead, we’ll have to make do with the eye palette that I was sent home with for now.

Avon’s Luxe Lace True Colour Eyeshadow Quad in Lace Hues is one of two eye palettes that Avon are releasing in special packaging as part of their Luxe Lace collection which is due to hit their online store at the end of the month.

Lace Hues contains four shades.  A shimmering white-gold, a matte neutral pink, a satin grey/green and a shimmering navy.  The packaging is delightful… a glossy black, well-built palette with pink lace embellishments.  It’s sturdy, secure and the large mirror inside is more than adequate for application’s sake.

On first inspection, it was the navy that caught my eye… it has a brighter blue flash to it… a certain interest that the other shades are lacking.

The texture of each shadow is quite hard and colour payoff is sheer but buildable with a bit of work.  I’ve been wearing the matte pink all over the lid with a touch of the grey/green in the socket and lashings of the blue underneath my lower lashline.  It’s a winning combination.  I’m not so fond of the pale gold highlighting shade as the shimmer is a little chunky and apparent for me.

The matte pink in particular has a tendency to kick up a bit of dust when loading up the brush, but the fallout doesn’t seem to transfer to my cheeks.  I know I’m gonna hit pan on that blue before any other colour though.  Isn’t it lovely?

What is the general opinion on Avon’s eyeshadow palettes?  I have to confess… I’ve never tried one before!

    I like Avons makeup, even though sometimes it can be hit and miss with certain things. But these shadows look very pigmented!!! This looks like a hit!

    That looks stunning. You’re right, the navy blue is by far the best. It’s similar to one I use often in the Sleek Storm palette xx

    I’m pretty sure I saw this in the latest catalogue. Packaging reminds me a *little* of Chanel…
    I agree, the navy caught my eye first. Lovely colours, shame about the lippie shot.

    I have one of those 8-in-1 palettes, the Smoky Eyes one, and I love it. A couple of the shades aren’t very good (the green one is pretty awful, crumbly as hell, actually), but I have good use of all the other ones, especially if using an eye primer under. The pinkish one on that palette is gorgeous, looks like a chalky crap in the pan but when you swatch it it’s a lovely shimmery lilac. Sure it’s not top notch quality, but for the price it’s a good deal. Since it cost me nothing because I ‘stole’ it from my mother, I like it even more 😛

    To me it’s not worth it anymore buying Avon make up (other than lipsticks) because they aren’t nearly as good quality as the higher end shadows I’m used to, and I don’t need to save money on make up, I’d rather buy better quality. Plus you can get cheap stuff that’s way better than Avon, eg. Sleek and 17 anyway.

    The blue and green shades look very pretty! I’ve never tried Avon eyeshadows but this quad is tempting me.

    I have a lot of the AVON e/s quads and 99% of the colors are fantastic. A few colors aren’t up to par, but I love 7 out of 8 that I have!!!
