Review: Avon True Colour Matte Eyeshadow Quad - Au Naturale

19:17

Hey Beauties!

I like Avon Eyeshadow Quads and have quite a few of those. Mocha Latte was my first quad palette and I especially loved two matte shades in there, so when I saw that they came out with three all matte quads I was really excited. Au Naturale is the most neutral brownish palette and I absolutely love it.


All their quads have a shiny black plastic packaging. It's compact and closes well. It's also great for travelling, because it's small.

You get double sided foam applicator, but I never use these any way.

Regular price of these is 10.60€, but they are almost always on offers for less. 




Au Naturale is neutral brown palette. The shades are also very neutral. They're not too warm neither too cool. 

Shade 1 - warm nude.
Shade 2 - warm taupe light brown.
Shade 3 - neutral chocolate medium brown.
Shade 4 - dark chocolate cool brown.


Texture is very silky and on the dry side, but I notice that these mattes are a bit more wet than those from Mocha Latte. They are a bit crumbly, because of the drier texture and you might experience some fall out. Just tap the brush before applying on the lids and it will be good.

I also noticed that these mattes are very pigmented, actually more than most of their mattes from other quads. Shades blend really well. They are also buildable. The more you put on the darker the shade. On the bottom you can see how light there are with just one swatch, while on the upper photo you'll see that they can be build up to a really dark shade. 


Shadows stay on me the whole day with minimal fading. I always use them with Avon Ideal Flawless eye shadow primer. I also didn't experience any creasing through the day. Only if I work out, then they will go a bit into the crease, but that's with all eye shadows I wear. 

I also compared two shades from Au Naturale to two matte shades from Mocha Latte, because I was curious if they're identical and they're actually not. Shade 2 from Au Naturale has a more visible yellow undertone, while Shade 2 from Mocha Latte has a bit more taupe or purple based shade.  They are both similar, but not quite dupes.

I also compared Shade 3 from Au Natural with Shade 4 from Mocha latte and 3 is darker than 4 and also a bit cooler, while 4 is much more red based and warmer. 


I already showed you how these shades look like in my All Brown Matte Makeup post. 






I also used it in other makeup to show you that it can look a bit less intense, if you don't apply it as heavily. 




I'm really glad Avon decided to add some all matte palettes, because I've been loving the two from Mocha Latte and actually wished for more brown matte shades from them. These are nicely pigmented, a bit crumbly, stay well on the lids and don't crease. Pigmentation is not out of this world, but to me this means that it's more wearable and blendable. I really like this Au Naturel selection, especially the fact that they're not too warm nor too cool. Definitely recommend it to those that want staple neutral matte palette with decent quality.

Avon četverci senčil so mi zelo všeč in imam jih kar nekaj. Mocha Latte je bila moja prva paleta in v njej so mi še posebej všeč mat odtenki. Ko sem videla, da je Avon naredil nove popolnoma mat palete sem bila navdušena. Au Naturale je najbolj nevtralna rjavkasta paleta in jaz jo obožujem.

Vsi njihovi četverci imajo sijočo črno plastično embalažo. Je kompaktna in se dobro zapira. Všeč mi je tudi za potovanja, ker je precej majhna. 

Zraven dobite tudi dvostranski aplikator z gobico, ki pa ga jaz nikoli ne uporabljam.

Redna cena palete je 10.60€, ampak Avon jih ima skoraj vedno v ponudbah po nižjih cenah.

Au Naturale je nevtralno rjava paleta. Odtenki so tudi precej nevtralni, ne preveč topli, niti hladni.

Odtenek 1 - topla nude.
Odtenek 2 - topla sivkasto svetlo rjava. 
Odtenek 3 - nevtralna srednje čokoladno rjava.
Odtenek 4 - temno čokoladno hladno rjava. 

Tekstura je zelo svilnata in sicer bolj suha kot vlažna. Čeprav opazim, da so ti mat odtenki veliko bolj vlažni kot na primer tisti mat odtenki iz Mocha Latte. Se tudi zelo lepo zabrisujejo. Senčila se malo drobijo zaradi suhe teksture in lahko vam padajo pod oči. To rešite tako, da preden nanesete senčilo na veke, malo stresite čopič. 

Opazila sem tudi, da so ti mat odtenki veliko bolj pigmentirani kot večina mat odtenkov iz drugih palet. Možno jih ne nadgrajevati. Če naneste tanek sloj, bodo senčila nežnejša in svetlejša. Če pa nanesete več slojev, postanejo temnejša. 

Senčila na mojih vekah ostanejo ves dan in zelo malo zbledijo. Pod njimi vedno uporabim Avon Ideal Flawless podlago za veke. Tudi nisem opazila, da bi se mi čez dan senčila nabirala v gubici. To se zgodi samo kadar treniram, kar pa je normalno glede na potenje in se mi to dogaja tudi z drugimi senčili. 

Primerjala sem Au Naturale z mat odtenki iz Mocha Latte, ker me je zanimalo ali so odtenki enaki in niso. Odtenek 2 iz Au Naturale je vidno bolj rumenkasto rjav, med tem ko je Odtenek 2 iz Mocha Latte bolj sivkas oziroma skoraj vijoličast. Oba odtenka sta si zelo podobna pa vseeno ne enaka. 

Primerjala sem tudi Odtenek 3 iz Au Natural z Odtenkom 4 iz Mocha Latte in 3 je temnejši kot 4 in tudi bolj hladen, med tem ko je 4 bolj rdečkast in topel. 

Odtenke senčil sem vam že pokazala v moji objavi All Brown Matte Makeup. Na drugih fotografijah pa lahko viditi, da lahko odtenki izgledajo tudi manj intenzivno, če jih nanašamo z bolj nežno roko. 

Res me veseli, da se je Avon odločil dodati v svoj nabor še nekaj mat palet. Dva mat odtenka iz Mocha Latte sta mi bila zelo všeč in želela sem si še več takih rjavih mat odtenkov. Ti so dobro pigmentirani, malo se sicer drobijo, dobro zdržijo na vekah in se ne nabirajo v gubo. Pigmentacija res ni izjemna, vendar zame to pomeni, da so senčila bolj nosljiva in se lažje zabrisujejo. Zelo mi je všeč nabor odtenkov v Au Naturale, še posebej dejstvo, da niso preveč topli, niti preveč hladni. Vsekakor priporočam vsem, ki si želijo vedno uporabno nevtralno mat paleto z dobro kvaliteto senčil.

    1. I have such a distinct warm undertone that everything turns on a warmer side on my skin :D. I think this palette may look totally different on other skin tones. Thank you :)
