Review: Avon Gilded Treasures Makeup Set

Not everyone out there is a beauty enthusiast that buys or collects boat loads of makeup. Many people just have the basic necessities….makeup essentials that include a liner, mascara, some lipstick and a few eye shadows. The Avon Gilded Treasures Makeup Set is perfect for someone like my mother-in-law that only buys what she needs. It includes a black eye liner, 3 lip glosses, a bronzer, 4 blushes, 16 eye shadows, a brush and double-sided applicators.

    All of the makeup comes in a gorgeous silver box that has pull-out trays and a vanity mirror. The interior makeup trays can be removed, so essentially you can use the box for any other purpose. Avon recommends using the box for jewelry storage afterwards but I think I’m going to use it to store all of my lip balms?

    The mirror, lips glosses, eye liner, bronzer & brush make up the top compartment. The mini lip glosses are nice but two of the three do not pack any pigment. They are however nice options for adding a very subtle wash of colour and shine to the lips. The bronzer is very shimmery, so for those of you who like a lot of “sheen” on your cheekbones, this product will definitely provide that. I wouldn’t use this bronzer for contouring though. The half-moon brush is a good back-up for quick touch-ups. I prefer to use my own brushes and usually toss the applicators in these sorts of kits, but the option is entirely yours. And finally, the eyeliner is just your standard basic black pencil liner.

    There are 8 shadows and 2 blushes included in each of the next 2 drawers. All of the eye shadows in both compartments have decent pigmentation, blend well and do not crease. I really like that there is a good assortment of coordinated shades available, making this a well-rounded option for beginners or anyone needing a basic set. The shimmer shades are really beautiful and there are also a few good matte options to choose from. Some of the shadows applied a bit patchy but all-in-all, this is a good selection of shadows. The blushes are probably my favourite products in the entire kit. They are well pigmented and vary from one to the next, providing good options for any beauty look. One of them is even light enough to be used as a highlighter.
