Gilded Metallics

Hello,

yesterday I only showed you the box of my new Avon eye shadow quad because it was already dark and the colors didn't show up. So, today I had a photo session with only this palette and I tried and I think I managed to capture the real colors.

This quad, Gilded Metallics has more or less khaki green and gold infused colors. I wasn't particularly sure if I will be able to pull it off because of my grey/blue eyes. I don't like to much color there, I prefer neutrals that don't clash with my eye color.

The colors look slightly different swatched on my skin than they look in the pan.
The no. 1 color in the pan looks warm light yellow but the color doesn't really transfer but it is packed with small yellow gold glitter. I tried it in my inner corners but it is too yellow for me to like it. I will try to put it only on the center of my lid to add some light but it is not my favorite shade, I could do without it as well.
No.2 is warm light brown with somewhat green undertone that will be lovely as an all over the lid shade.
No. 3 is my absolute favorite. It is khaki green with gold sheen which was seen whenever I moved my arm and I think it will be stunning on the eyes, perfect all over the lid shade plus it is so special that I probably won't get tired of it anytime soon.
The last one no. 4 is chocolaty brown with sparse tiny gold glitter.. The glitter looks a bit much but it makes the color tied more to the whole palette. On the eyes it is not really visible and I'm okay with it. I like to use it as a liner on top lid and on the lover one I smudge it to make my eyes a bit bigger and smokier.

Like I said, I was scared that the palette will be too green and it won't suit me but I ended up loving it. These type of khaki green are perfect for a very soft smokey eye, I feel comfortable wearing it also during the day but the shades can be intensified and perfect also for women who likes darker eye look. I'm really happy that I took risk and got this one instead Stone Taupes or Mocha Latte (they are both neutral and have only beige/brown shades). maybe next year I will pick up these two as well but for now I have a lot of new eye shadows and not enough days to play with.


Thank you for reading and have a nice day
