Avon True Color Eyeshadow Quad in Mocha Latte

Here is another Avon item I picked up recently.   I picked up the True Color Eyeshadow Quad in Mocha Latte.

(swatches clockwise from lower left)

The colors and textures in the quad are as follows:
  • light peach - Satin finish with underwhelming payoff.  It tended to be powdery.  True to pan.
  • Medium dark brown - Matte finish.  Super soft and buttery.  Great payoff.  Cool medium brown.  True to pan.
  • Dark Brown - Matte.  Super soft and buttery.  Great payoff.  Cool dark brown.  True to pan.
  • Taupe - Metallic finish.  Coppery pinky brown, not at all taupe.  Not true to pan.

I picked the quad up on sale for $5.99, which is cheaper than a lot of drugstore palettes.  Avon's distribution is a bit of a pain in this day and age.  I don't have an "Avon Lady".  I used their website and ended up having to pay shipping, which I hate.  

For the price, this is a really nice palette.  The shadows aren't fantastic, but they're good.  And the packaging is sturdy, especially at this price point.

Overall:  8/10


  1. This looks like a mini version dupe of the Naked palettes :)

    1. It definitely has some really similar colors and the quality isn't bad at all.
