Avon Mega Impact Eyeshadow - Flash Back

I ordered this eyeshadow duo recently from my local Avon representative (sorry Avon, not loving your online shop layout so don't order from there). I went for "Flash Back" as I love greys and blacks and don't like using my more expensive eyeshadows for everyday kind of use.

At the minute the Mega Impact Eyeshadow Duos cost £8 and come in 4 different colour combinations - Berry Electric, Blue Wattage, Flash Back and Nude Attitude - all of which can be seen (sort of) here

What they say:
Flexible formula can be used dry or wet for different levels of impact. With Chromapixel Technology for amplified colour

What I thought:
Hmm first off I was a little disappointed with the packaging. It's seemed very plastic to me and little bit cheap looking. It is also very light which might not be a bad thing for carrying it around in your bag though I would worry about it getting damaged quite quickly. It comes with the obligatory but fairly useless double ended applicator.

Initially I thought the built up hexagonal shape of the shadows themselves was quite cute but I've found them a little hard to work with and I'm not sure how they would wear down.

Now this all seems very negative but when it comes to the shadows themselves I AM impressed. I like the white/grey and the black colours. The lighter colour has a soft pearly shimmer and the black is quite matte and works nicely on the crease of the eyelid. The black is especially pigmented and they both apply well and blend with a little effort. They compliment each other nicely and are a great option for a neat eyeshadow combo that requires no others if you wished.

Overall I think I would repurchase, especially as part of an Avon offer. I think they might be a tiny bit overpriced at the RRP of £8 but still a handy option for your make up bag.

Have you tried any of this range? Or can you recommend a similar alternative?
