By Lindsay: As the niece of an Avon Lady I’ve long been a fan of the brand’s great-value hair, body and skincare range, and I’m happy that theyare finally ditching their old-fashioned image and coming out with some pretty excited products. In fact for the first time, I’m actually considering buying an Avon product because of what it looks like, and not despite it! Their newest collaboration is with finish fashion giant Marimekko, and the two have come together to produce these pretty compacts for cheeks and eyes, only £8 each and featuring the brand’s cute Unikkopoppy-print.
Once on, the colours weren’t as vivid as I expected, but instead the soft-textured powder provided a sheer wash of colour that stayed on all day (no creasing!) The shimmer was really subtle, and although I usually stick to neutrals, the muted pastels in the eye palettes blended brilliantly, making a look that seems perfect for summer – if it ever comes!
