Avon Color Trend: Ideal for Make-Up Beginners

8/28/2014



It really is hard to get around and find your way in the make-up world at the beginning since there is so much choice nowadays. Luckily, things have changed for the better and drugstore, more affordable make-up is of a really good and decent quality - something I wish I had during my teenage years. If you know someone younger who is interested in make-up and loves colors and is of a generally playful character, than this following make-up range might be perfect as an introductory kit. Avon Color Trend make-up collection is consisted out of nail polishes, lipsticks,  eye shadows, foundations and even mascaras - the whole lot, packaged in playful colors and easy design. Today, I have glosses, pencils and mascaras on the menu and some even captured my attention. What can I say? I'm still young at heart. Color Blast Lip Laquers come in four intense colors - pretty basic hue range which is perfectly divided into four predominant categories we usually find in lip products. Shocking Coral is, as the name suggests, a coral/peachy shade which is shot through with golden shimmer. Fuchsia Flash is a cool toned pink with very fine silver shimmer. Nude Extreme is a medium dark beige/brown with fine golden shimmer and Vivid Violet is a vampy, dark mauve/plum with holographic shimmer. As you can tell, all shades are aptly named and easy to recognize. All shades are intensely pigmented and have a good lasting power of min 3h. I like Fuchsia Flash and Nude Extreme best as they look most natural. These glosses have a strong sweet scent - something that might be appealing to the younger audience. Design is also kept very minimal with the doe foot applicator and see-through tube. Texture is a bit tacky, thick and sticky but I believe that beginners will not find this noticeable or worrysome.

Uopste nije lako snaci se u bogatom svijetu kozmetike danas, posebno pocetnicima posto na raspolaganju imamo ogroman izbor i kozmeticko trziste. Srecom, drogerijska kozmetika i uopsteno make-up pristupacnijeg cjenovnog ranga nikada nije imao bolju niti kvalitetniju ponudu - to je nesto sto bih voljela da su imale moje generacije. Ukoliko poznajete neku mladu osobu koja se tek zeli upoznati sa kozmetikom, voli boje i uopsteno je raspolozena za poigravanje sa kozmetikom, onda bi ovaj post mogao posluziti kao inspiracija za pocetnicki make-up kit. Avon Color Trend kolekcija se sastoji od ruzeva i sjajila za usne, lakova za nokte, sjena, podloga pa cak i maskara - upakovanih u vesele i sarene ambalaze. Danas na beauty meniju imamo sjajila za usne, olovke za oci i maskare intenzivnih nijansi. Moram priznati da je par komada koje sam testirala zaokupilo cak i moju paznju. Sta da kazem? I dalje sam dijete u dusi. Color Blast Lip Laquers (4,50KM) su sjajila koja dolaze u cetiri intenzivne boje - radi se o prilicno jednostavnim, izravnim bojama koje su savrseno rasporedjene u osnovne kategorije koje inace mozemo vidjeti u kozmetickim kolekcijama. Shocking Coral je, kako naziv sugerise, koralno/breskvasta nijansa prozeta zlatnim shimmerom. Fuchsia Flash je ruzicasta nijansa hladnog podtona, obogacena srebrnim shimmerom. Nude Extreme je smedjkasta nijansa koze koja sadrzi jako sitan shimmer, dok je Vivid Violet vamp tamna boja sljive/mauve koja je prozeta holografskim shimmerom. Kao sto se moze naslutiti, nijanse je lako raspoznati i sve su pohvalne pigmentacije i trajnosti od cca 3h. Meni se najvise dopadaju Fuchsia Flash i Nude Extreme posto na usnama djeluju najprirodnije. Ova sjajila posjeduju intenzivan slatkasti miris - nesto sto bi mladjim generacijama moglo biti privlacno. Dizajn je takodjer jednostavan, aplikator je klasican (spuzvasti) a tubice su prozirne. Tekstura je malo gusca i blago ljepljiva no vjerujem da pocetnicima to nece predstavljati problem.



Color Elements Metallic Eyeliners look like a pack of crayons and I find that school theme appropriate as I imagine teens wearing these shades the most. Although, I think I'll keep one or two shades for myself. Brazen Ember is a medium dark brown with reddish shimmer - not as metallic as I'd expected. Olive Greenery is a bronzy/olive hue with a true metallic finish and golden shimmer. Teal Waters is a dark teal/turquoise with a metallic finish and sparse shimmer while White Zephyr is a chalky white. As you can tell, the eyeliner range's name is somewhat misleading as only two shades (Teal Waters and Olive Greenery) are true metallics and my favorites as well - they are very creamy, glide on perfectly, have that metallic vibe and a decent wear (approx 5h). Brazen Ember is the most disappointing out of the bunch as its texture is somewhat dry while White Zephyr can be easily used for a stark inner eye lining. Color Elements Colored Mascara is an ideal way to play with colored lashes - regardless of your age. I think these mascaras are one of the best affordable offerings I found - they really are cheap as chips and they deliver a strong pop of color. Especially Cobalt Blast which is a truly punchy, vibrant sky/periwinkle blue. Earthy Brown is of a lovely, rich chocolate brown hue and is something paler complexions and lighter hair look most natural with. These mascaras don't flake and are easily removed without a single eyelash being pulled out. The only thing I would have a remark about is the brush - it's an old-scholl type of brush with thick bristles. It isn't bad but it isn't perfect either as thin lashes such as mine can get a bit spidery. That's why I use it on the tips of my lashes only, after I've coated them with my regular black mascara of choice. All in all, Avon's Color Trend range is a cute way to get introduced and experiment with colors and textures without breaking the bank. 

Color Elements Metallic olovke za oci (3,90KM) izgledaju poput bojica i bas taj skolski izgled je prikladan posto mogu zamisliti da su tinejdzeri najvise skloni neobicnim nijansama. Iako, nemojte se dati zavarati - dvije su cak i mene dojmile te cu ih zadrzati u svojoj kolekciji. Brazen Ember je srednje tamna smedja nijansa prozeta crvenkastim shimmerom. Doduse, nije bas metalik finisa kao sto sam ocekivala. Olive Greenery je bronzano/maslinasta nijansa sa zlatnim shimmerom i istinskog je metalik finisa. Teal Waters je tamna teal/tirkizna nijansa, takodjer metalik finisa i blagog shimmera dok je White Zephyr je kredasto bijela olovka, bez shimmera. Prilicno je jasno da naziv 'metalik olovke za oci' bas i ne odgovara olovkama u potpunosti posto su samo dvije nijanse (Teal Waters and Olive Greenery) zaista metalik. One mi se ujedno najvise dopadaju. Najmanje mi se dopala nijansa Brazen Ember posto joj je tekstura pomalo suha dok je White Zephyr idealna za unutarnji waterline, ukoliko volite u tu svrhu koristiti bijelu olovku umjesto olovke u boji koze. Color Elements maskara u boji (4,90KM) je odlican izbor ako zelite isprobati trend drecavo obojenih trepavica - bez obzira koliko imate godina. Mislim da su ovo jedne od najboljih maskara ove vrste koje sam isprobala - stvarno su vise nego pristupacne a odlicno su pigmentirane. Posebnu paznju privlaci nijansa Cobalt Blast jer je jarko plave boje neba. Earthy Brown je krasne cokoladne smedje nijanse koja cak prirodno djeluje uz svijetliji ten ili kosu. Ove maskare se ne rasipaju i lako se skidaju sa trepavica. Jedino na sto bih imala primjedbu jeste cetkica - prilicno je starinskog stiha i "dlacice" su dosta guste sto cini da tanke trepavice poput mojih nakon par slojeva djeluju slijepljeno. Zato ove maskare koristim samo na vrhovima trepavica (preko crne maskare) sto stvarno izgleda interesantno. U svakom pogledu, Avon Color Trend kolekcija je zanimljiv i zabavan nacin za poigravanje sa bojama i teksturama koji vam nece biti veliki trosak.
