Avon Violetta Matte

Happy Sunday, all.  Quicky post as I scramble to catch up on a million and a half things, mostly blog-related.  

For my second to last Avon post, I bring you a stunning, albeit discontinued, purple-leaning indigo matte creme.  Violetta Matte is what I'd consider a classic matte, one that is not infused with any sort of silver or gold shimmer that many of the newer mattes are being made with to add depth.  Instead, the smoothness of the Avon polish really gives off a suede-like finish that even me and my matte indifferent nature can appreciate.

As to the formula, it wasn't too bad.  I've personally struggled with mattes before since they tend to apply clumpy and dry very quickly making it a pain to even out if you're not fast enough.  While the first coat was exactly that, a splotchy mess, the second coat completely smoothed everything over to the perfect suede finish before you.


It's a real shame that this collection of Avon mattes was discontinued but I look forward to seeing what else they have in store in the near future.

  3. although it applied splotchy, the final outcome looks great. I have a matte top coat that I don't like using because it always looks so splotchy
