Review: Avon Mega Effects Creamy Eyeshadows

19:38

Avon Mega Effects Creamy Eyeshadows are new cream eye shadows by Avon. I was a true lover of Maybelline Color Tattoos and I still love Kiko Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadows, so my expectations were high. 


These are marketed as waterproof gel eyeshadows that should last up to 18 hours. Packaging is identical to their eyeshadow primer. It's a glass pot with black plastic top. In each is 3.6 grams of product and the regular price is 8.70€. Currently you can get them for 4.80€ (Slovenia).

You can choose among 6 different shades: White Gold, Raw Gold, Yellow Gold, Bronzed Gold, Platinum Gold and Rose Gold.


Texture varies among shades, but in general those are thicker and drier eyeshadows. I was surprised how hard top layer was. Once I broke through it, it got better. I'm worried that these will dry too quickly, but I don't have them for a long time, so I can't say this for sure.

Because of the thick and dry formula, you'll need really dense brush to pick these up. In my opinion fingers work best, but I use brush because it's easier to blend. I use brush first and apply a light layer all over and blend the edges. Then I apply second layer with my finger for a fuller opacity. They blend with ease and don't set too quickly so you still have some play time. Pot packaging makes it a bit hard to scoop out the product, especially if you have long nails, so it's not the most useful. 

As far as pigmentation goes those are really buildable. You can apply a very light wash of shimmering color or you can seriously pack it on to a full on metallic look. I prefer to pack these on, especially on the center of the lid. You need to be careful not to apply too much, because it can look a bit crackly and thick.

Yellow Gold - yellow toned white with gold shimmer (warm toned)
White Gold - light silver with silver shimmer (cool toned)
Platinum Gold - lavender toned silver with silver shimmer (cool toned)
Rose Gold - light pink with gold shimmer (cool toned, but gold shimmer makes it warm toned)
Raw Gold - antique gold with gold shimmer (warm toned)
Bronzed Gold - taupe with silver shimmer (cool toned)


Eyeshadows are really long lasting. I wore them for the whole day and they didn't move at all. Sometimes with other cream eyeshadows you can get a bit of creasing which is especially due to the slightly creamier formula, but not with these. These stayed on like cement. I was seriously impressed. Dare I say that these seem to be even more long lasting than Kiko or Maybelline creamy eyeshadows. 

I also tried to put water over them and nothing. It was only after I rubbed it really hard under the water that they lost intensity as you can see on the photo below. So I'd say these are definitely waterproof. Drier formula works in favor of the long lasting power, because it really doesn't move once it sets.

They have a weird artificial smell that I don't like.


Yellow Gold

It's yellow toned warm white with gold shimmer. This is the lightest shade and it's also the shade that fades the quickest. It's more on the sheer side, but it's buildable. Formula is on the drier side and you really need to scoop it out of the pot.







White Gold

It's a cool light silver with silver shimmer. It's also one of the lightest shades and can be build up for a metallic opaque look. Formula is a bit creamier and it applies nicely. 






Rose Gold

It's a cool toned light pink with warm gold shimmer which makes it warm toned. Its' fairly light and on the sheer side. Formula is creamy and it's fairly easy to apply. 







Platinum Gold

It's a cool toned silver with lavender undertone and silver shimmer. It's darker than White Gold. Formula is creamy and it can be build up to a metallic opaque look.  







Raw Gold

It's like an antique warm gold with gold shimmer. It has a bit of olive tone to it. This one can also be build up to an opaque look. It's on a bit drier side of the formula.







Bronzed Gold

It's a cool toned taupe brown with silver shimmer. It can also be build up to opaque look. Formula is creamy. 







As always I compared shades with some others. Raw Gold seemed similar toned as one of my favorite eyeshadows - L'Oreal Color Infaillible in 024 Bronze Goddess. After swatching both together, I realized that Bronzed Goddess is in fact a lot more green, while Raw Gold just has that green tint to it, but is in fact more of a brown.

Bronzed Gold reminded me of other brown creamy eyeshadows. Kiko Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadow in 06 Golden Brown is a warmer and darker brown and it has that same silver shimmer in it. Maybelline Color Tattoo in 35 On And On Bronze is the same darkness as Bronzed Gold, but it's also a lot warmer. It does have that same silver sheen to it. In fact none are similar, because Bronzed Gold is a lot cooler than all other shades.


My favorite shades are Raw Gold (because I love golds), Bronzed Gold (because it has lovely creamy formula) and White Gold (because it's really intense). I even likee Rose Gold, because for once it's not a cool toned pink, it has lovely gold sheen to it. 

Those are thicker and drier formula cream eyeshadows that stay on the lid for the whole day and don't move. You can also go swim with them. They are harder to apply and you might hate them for that, but if you're looking for something really long lasting, you'll love these. The formula is buildable so it's nice for those of you that just want a hint of color or you can fully pack them on for intense look. Shades are pretty basic and everyone can find one for them.

Avon Mega Effects kremna senčila so Avonova nova kremna senčila. V preteklosti sem oboževala Maybelline Color Tattooje in še vedno obožujem Kiko Long Lasting senčila v stiku, zato so bila moja pričakovanja glede teh precej visoka.

Oglašujejo se kot vodoodporna senčila v gelu, ki naj bi ostala na vekah 18 ur. Embalaža je identična Avonovi podlagi za veke. Senčila so v steklenih posodah s črnim plastičnim pokrovom. V vsakem je 3.6 gramov izdelka in redna cena je 8.70€. Trenutno jih lahko dobite za 4.80€ (tukaj).

Izbirate lahko med šestimi odtenki: White Gold, Raw Gold, Yellow Gold, Bronzed Gold, Platinum Gold and Rose Gold.

Tekstura se razlikuje od odtenka do odtenka, ampak na sploh so gostejša in bolj suha senčila. Presenečena sem bila kako zelo trda je bila zgorna plast. Ko sem jo prebila, je senčilo postalo bolj mazljivo. Skrbi me, da bi se lahko senčila prehitro posušila. Nimam jih dovolj dolgo, da bi lahko komentirala glede tega.

Zaradi goste in suhe formule boste potrebovali zelo gost čopič s katerim jih boste lahko pobrali iz lončka. Nanos s prsti je nekoliko lažji. Z čopičem pa jih ležje zabrišete. Sama najprej uporabim čopič za prvi tanek sloj in jih zabrišem. Nato s prston nanesem še drugi sloj in jih naredim bolj pigmentirane. Senčila se lepo zabrisujejo in se ne posušijo prehitro, tako da imate dovolj časa, da jih lepo zabrišete. Stekleni lonček otežuje nanos izdelka, sploh če ga poskušate dobiti ven in imate dolge nohte. Tako, da embalaža ni najbolj praktična. 

Pigmentacija se lahko nadgradi. Nanesete lahko izredno tanek sloj, ali pa ga nadgradite do precej kovinskega sijaja. Jaz imam raje zelo pigmentiran izgled zato vedno nanesem precej debel sloj, še posebej na sredino veke. Kljub temu morate biti previdni, da ne nanesete preveč, saj lahko hitro izgleda precej debelo in popokano.

Yellow Gold - svetel rumenkasto bel odtenek z zlatimi bleščicami (topel)
White Gold - svetlo srebren odtenek s srebrnimi bleščicami (hladen)
Platinum Gold - vijolično srebrn odtenek s srebrnimi bleščicami (hladen)
Rose Gold - svetlo roza odtenek z zlatimi bleščicami (hladno roza, ampak zlate bleščice ga naredijo toplega)
Raw Gold - antično zlat odtenek z zlatimi bleščicami (topel)
Bronzed Gold - sivo rjav odtenek s srebrnimi bleščicami (hladen)

Senčila so res zelo obstojna. Nosila sem jih ves dan in se niso premaknila. Včasih se kremna senčila rada nabirajo v gubi na veki, ker je tekstura precej kremasta. Ker so ta bolj suha, so res kot beton. Ko se posušijo, se ne premaknejo. Obstojnost me je resnično pozitivno presenetila. Upam si celo trditi, da so celo bolj obstojna kot Kiko in Maybelline kremna senčila.

Polila sem jih z vodo in ugotovila, da so ostala nespremenjena. Šele ko sem jih pod vodo močno drglina z roko, so izgubile intenziteto. Lahko potrdim, da so vsekakor vodoodporna. Mislim, da je za dobro obstojnost vsekakor zaslužena suha formula, ker se res ne premika.

Imajo čuden umeten vonj, ki mi ni všeč.

Yellow Gold

Rumenkasto bela z zlatimi bleščicami. Je najsvetlejši odtenek in najhitreje zbledi. Je bolj prosojen, ampak ga lahko nadgradimo. Formula je bolj suha in jo je težje dobiti iz lončka. 

White Gold

Hladno srebrn odtenek s srebrnimi bleščicami. Je še en izmed svetlih odtenkov in ga lahko nadgradimo v pigmentiran kovinski videz. Formula je bolj mazljiva in se lepo nanaša.

Rose Gold

Hladno roza odtenek z zlatimi bleščicami, ki naredijo odtenek topel. Je precej svetel odtenek in prav tako bolj prosojen. Formula je kremasta in se dokaj lahko nanaša.

Platinum Gold

Hladno srebrn odtenek z vijoličnim pridihom in srebrnimi bleščicami. Je temnejši kot White Gold. Formula je kremasta in odtenek lahko nadgradimo v popoln kovinski videz.

Raw Gold

Antično zlat odtenek z zlatimi bleščicami. Ima rahel oliven podton. Tudi tega lahko nadgradimo v zelo pigmentiran videz. Je bolj suha formula.

Bronzed Gold

Hladno sivo rjav odtenek s srebrnimi bleščicami. Tudi tega lahko nadgradimo v zelo pigmentiran videz. Formula je kremasta.

Kot vedno sem senčila primerjala tudi z drugimi odtenki. Raw Gold se mi je zdel precej podoben enemu izmed mojih najljubših senčil - L'Oreal Color Infallible v odtenku 024 Bronze Goddess. Ko sem oba nanesla na roko, sem ugotovila, da je L'Orealov dejansko zelen, med tem ko je Raw Gold samo rahlo zeleno obarvna, drugače pa izgleda bolj rjav. 

Bronzed Gold me je spomnil na moja druga rjava kremna senčila. Kiko Long Lasting Stick senčilo v odtenku 06 Golden Brown je toplejši in temnejši rjav odtenek. Ima pa enak srebrn ton bleščic. Maybelline Color Tattoo v odtenki 35 On And On Bronze je enako temen kot Bronzed Gold, ampak je toplejši. Prav tako ima srebrn sijaj. Noben izmed odtenkov ni podoben, ker je Bronzed Gold najbolj hladen. 

Moji favoriti so Raw Gold (ker obožujem zlato), Bronzed Gold (ker ima najlepše mazljivo teksturo) in White Gild (ker je precej intenziven odtenek). Celo Rose Gold mi je všeč, ker ni tipično hladen roza odtenek, ampak ima zlat sijaj.

Senčila so gostejša in bolj suha. Na vekah ostanejo cel dan in se ne premaknejo. Z njimi greste lahko tudi na bazen. Nanašanje je oteženo in mogoče jih boste zaradi tega zasovražili. Če pa iščete nekaj zelo obstojnega, so zagotovo za vas. Formulo lahko nadgradite. Zaradi tega so primerna za vse, ki si želite samo rahlo obarvane veke ali pa za tiste, ki jih boste nanesle na debelo za intenziven videz. Odtenki so precej osnovni in vsak si lahko najde vsaj enega zase.

  2. Raw Gold me kliče <3 Samo a so res zelo goste te senčke? V primerjavi z Maybellinovimi?

    1. Sem predvidevala, da ti bo všeč. Vem, da imaš večkrat podobno senčko na tvojih fotografijah :). V bistvu, ko prebiješ zgornjo plast, ki se je verjetno hitro posušila, ni tako zelo bolj gost. Se mi zdi, da Maybellinovi čez čas postanejo enako bolj trdi. Na začetku so sicer bolj mehki. Je pa pri obeh potrebno kar malo grobo prit do senčila. Sploh z fluffy čopičem, ne bo nič gor pobralo. So pa zaradi tega res izredno obstojne.
