Happy sunday everyone!

There is a makeup/jewelry box set that is on sale in the Avon brochure. It's the Gilded Treasures makeup set at 49.99$ cnd (95$ value). it's a pretty silver with shimmer and can be used as a jewelry box.

It comes with 16 eyeshadows, 4 blushes, a miror, one black eyeliner, 3 lipglosses and a bronzer brush.

The lipglosses all have shimmer in them and very sheer: light peach, light mauve and a light pink.

They are very sheer, they are not sticky. For my skintone they don't show but very useful as a top for my lipsticks.

The bronzer is a nice  medium bwon with a light shimmer. The brush ia a half-moon and very soft.

The black pencil is a basic black.

The eyeshadows are separated in  set of 4 and are in  two drawers there's also  a blush next to them.

1st quad consist of a yellow, purple, a light green a a medium blue. The yellow and the blue are mattes.

The second quad: orange/peach, blue/purple, reddish brown and a emerald. They are more pearl and satin finishes.

The two blushes: one coral and one champagne.

Third quad: matte lavender, dark lavender (shimmer), gold shimmer (a little chunky), matte dark purple.

Fourth quad: matte brown, pearl chocolate, shimmer forest green (chunky) and a dark cranberry with brown undertone (pearl)

Two blushes: matte berry and a light purple.

I used the last quad, the light purple as a blush and the pink lipgloss.

It's a very good makeup set, the eyeshadows are pigmented, the gold shimmer and the forest green are a bit chunky and as a little bit of fallour nothing to really complain about. The lipsgloss are very sheer on me but are still useful. The blushes are great but the light berry doesn't show on my skin but in person it gives a little bit of shimmer on my cheeks.

I would buy this as a gift, it's at a great price, the packaging is cute and it becomes a very nice jewelry box!
