Review: Avon Magic Effects Matte nail polishes (White, Black, Violetta, Inky Blue) + giveaway

22:52

Hey Beauties!

Continuing with the Avon nail polish reviews, today we're going to be talking about my favorite finish - matte.


Avon sent me all four shades of their Avon Magic Effects Matte range. This range includes nails with matte finish in blue, violet, white and black. Two basic colors with two dark colorful colors. 

The regular price of these nail polishes is 5.90€, but they are now on offer 1 for 4.90€ and 2 for 6.90€ here. You get 10 ml of product in each nail polish.

Avon Magic Effects Matte - White

This is a true white shade. It looks that chalkboard white. I find it the hardest to work with. It's very thick in consistency and very pigmented. Because matte finish nail polishes dry really quickly, you have to paint your nails extremely quickly. You don't really get enough play time and because it's white, every mistake will be seen. The thick formula doesn't really help. It also really emphasizes all the mistakes, like uneven layers. One coat is not enough, because you can't cover the entire nail.




Left - one coat, Right - two coats

Avon Magic Effects Matte - Black

It's a true black shade. I will say it's not dark like night, but it is black. It's also a lot thinner in consistency, actually the thinnest of these and very pigmented. One coat is enough, if you can get it even, but I always put on two coats.




Left - one coat, Right - two coats

Avon Magic Effects Matte - Violetta

This is an electric violet shade. It's also pretty thick, but not as the white one and well pigmented. One coat will not be enough, you'll probably need two to get it even and opaque. When you apply thin coat it looks like violet with red undertone. But when you put over a second coat it becomes dark violet. I'm sorry, the photos don't show the true shade. It looks way too blue on the photo.




Left - one coat, Right - two coats

Avon Magic Effects Matte - Inky Blue

In the bottle it looks like a mix of dark blue and eggplant purple, but it dries to a  very dark navy blue with red sheen. It's also pretty thick, but not as thick as the white one and well pigmented. One coat might be enough, if you apply it heavily and as even as possible.




Left - one coat, Right - two coats
All of the Matte nail polishes are pretty thick (except Black) in consistency and dry really fast. You don't get time to play with it. One, two, three strokes and it's already dry, so you may mess it up by going over too many times. White is the thickest and the most hard to work with. Next are Violetta and Inky Blue, which are thinner and easier to work with. I find the thinnest to be Black and also the one that I can get most even application. All are well pigmented and one thick even coat could be enough, but I prefer to get it even with two coats. They also give true matte finish, which I absolutely adore.



The brush is also standard, straight cut.

Unfortunately this finish is not long lasting on me. They start to chip at the ends of my nails very fast and it makes the manicure not perfect. They chip on me the first day, if I really use my hands. Maybe that's again due to my weak nails.

I have to say I love the finish, but was a bit disappointed with the hard to work with formula. I guess I sort of expected it, because it is a result of a very fast drying effect. I will say Black is the best to work with and Violetta and Inky Blue are also good once you get the hang of it. I would personally stay away from White, or I would just use it for nail art, like stamping and such. This would work great with all these polishes.

Today I'm giving away Avon Magic Effects Matte nail polish in Inky Blue and Avon Magic Effects Fringe in Tassled Trim. All you need to do is fill in Rafflecopter. I'm sorry, this giveaway is Slovenian only.

Danes bom predstavila Avon Magic Effects Matte linijo. V tej liniji so štirje laki Black, White, Violetta in Inky Blue.

Redna cena laka je 5.90€, ampak trenutno jih lahko dobite enega za 4.90€ ali dva za 6.90€. Vsak lak vsebuje 10 ml izdelka.

Avon Magic Effects Matte – White

To je pravi bel odtenek, ki me spominja na Edigs. Je najbolj težavna formula, saj je precej gost in dobro pigmentiran. Ker se vsi mat efekt laki ekstremno hitro sušijo, imam zelo malo časa za enakomeren nanos, ki po navadi ravno ne uspe. En sloj ne bo dovolj za popolno prekritje, saj sta potrebna vsaj dva.

Avon Magic Effects Matte – Black

Pravi črn odtenek, čeprav ni črn kot noč. Je formula s katero je najlepše delati, ker je rahlo tanjša formula. Je zelo dobro pigmentiran. En sloj bo dovolj, če bo dovolj debel in enakomeren, ampak jaz vedno nanesem dva.

Avon Magic Effects Matte – Violetta

To je električno vijoličen odtenek. Je tudi precej gost, ampak ne kot bel. Je dobro pigmentiran in en sloj bo zadostoval. Prvi sloj izgleda kot vijoličen odtenek z rdečim podtonom, če pa nansem še drugi sloj izgleda temno vijoličen.

Avon Magic Effects Matte – Inky Blue

V steklenički izgleda kot mešanica temno modre in vijolične jajčevca, ampak posuši se v temno rdečo z rdečim sijajem. Je prav tako gost, vendar ne tako kot bel in dobro pigmentiran. En sloj bo dovolj, če je dovolj debel.

Vsi mat laki so precej gosti (razen črnega) in se posušijo zelo hitro, tako da ni mogoče veliko popravkov med samim nanosom. Bel je najgostejši in najtežji za namazati. Moder in vijoličen sta manj gosta in dobra za nanašanje. Črn je najtanjši glede formule in najlepši za nanos. Vsi so zelo pigmentirani in en nanos bi bil dovolj za prekritje celotnega nohta, če bo dovolj debel in enakomeren. Ustvarijo res pravi mat finiš, ki ga jaz osebno obožujem.

Čopič je standarden, ravno odrezan.

Žal ta finiš ni preveč obstojen na mojih nohtih. Problem je, ker se zelo hitro začne krušiti na koncu nohta in potem več ne izgleda popolno. Meni se začne krušiti še isti dan, če res delam kaj z rokami. Mogoče so za to spet krivi moji šibki nohti. 

Obožujem finiš, vendar sem bila razočarana nad formulo s katero je težko delati. V bistvu sem to rahlo pričakovala, saj se mat laki na sploh zelo hitro sušijo in mora biti nanašanje res hitro. Črn je najlažji za nanos, nato sledita moder in vijoličen in bel je najtežji za nanos in ga ne bi priporočala, mogoče samo za kakšen nail art ali stamping. Za to bi bili vsi laki odlični.


Danes podarjam dva laka in sicer Avon Magic Effects Matte lak v odtenku Inky Blue in Avon mAgic Effects Fringe v odtenku Tassled Trim. Vse kar morate storiti je izpolniti polja v Rafflecopterju.

    1. Očitno je res nekaj na formuli mat lakov. Na sploh, ne samo Avonovih. Meni se isto dogaja z drugimi. Mogoče bo pa Mat top coat bolj vzdržljiv ;)
