New Avon "Aquadelic" Quad

This new True Color "Aquadelic" quad will be available in Campaign 5. Looks like Avon is trying to keep up with the times by coming out with 2 new quads with bold/bright colors. The "Aquadelic" quad and the "Electric Purple" quad. I purchased the Aquadelic quad as a demo to test it out. First the color "Aquadelic" is true to it's name, very bold and Aqua, almost turquoise. While the pigmentation is quite bold and very matte, there is something lacking in the quality. It's a little chalky. Same goes for "Coral Crush." A powerful Coral color with pink undertones, it's again, chalky. I will say though Avon is succeeding with the bold colors, I just don't really know how you'd wear the colors in this quad altogether without looking like a clown. I do like "Black Ice." It is very shimmery and has gray undertones, again very pigmented. "Rich Creme" (the soft eggshell in the quad) would make an excellent highlight color but forewarned you'll need to blend, and blend, and blend. It applies VERY chalky but once blended leaves a nice sheen. I think out of 5 Zombies, I will give this one a 3. Though nice pigmentation and staying power, there is something lacking in the quality. A good quad if you're going to the Caribbean anytime soon though! haha
