Review: Avon Tiger Eyes Quad

Morning lovelies :)

I've been having a bit of a play with this quad recently and now I have, it's time for a review!

Product



Avon sayLimited edition tiger print eye compact. 4 complementary shades. Silky smooth, intense, long lasting colour.

I say: I love the packaging, it's nice to have something a little bit different as it's easy to spot in my collection. It's quite a sturdy compact with a large mirror in the lid, perfect for on-the-go touch ups. In the quad you get 4 shadows and a standard double-ended foam applicator. I ordered this from a sale brochure a while ago and was drawn to it because it looked fairly neutral. I wasn't disappointed. There's a light highlight shade (top left), a shimmery copper (top right), a mushroom (bottom left), and a cocoa brown (bottom right). They're not the most pigmented shadows I've ever used, but over a primer they're a lot better. 

Application


Avon say: Well nothing, but there is a handy diagram on the back of the box which shows you how to apply the four colours in the quad:


I say: The above diagram essentially is about creating a smoky eye which is fairly easy once practiced a little. On to the application of the shadows, they're not necessarily of the best pigmentation used alone, however with a primer they're a lot stronger. Shade #1 used alone reminds me a little bit of MAC's Brule but with a hint of shimmer. As you can see from the swatches below it looks a little stronger over GOSH eye shadow stick in Beige, which also brings out the shimmer much more. Shade #2 is a lovely shimmery copper. Shade #3 is a mushroomy brown, and shade #4 is a cocoa brown colour. The latter two have a matte finish. Overall a nice quad to have in your collection.

Swatched over a primer

Price: RRP £8.00. I think I paid about £4.00. A different version of this quad is available for £3.00
Size: 4 x 3g eye shadows
