Coming Soon: Avon's Arctic Goddess Collection: Pic Heavy

Fans of frosted shades, both blues and greens are going to adore this season's Limited Edition collection, Arctic Goddess from Avon. There's a little something for everyone in here, how about a geansaí load of photos, eh? 

Firstly we have two gorgeous eye shadow palettes, one more vibrant than the other but both  very wearable. Muse is the more subtle of the two with muted greens, purples and taupes with Arctic Goddess for the braver amongst us, with one of the most in yo' face, vibrant blue shadows I've seen in a while. 

Muse Palette: €11

Muses shadows each have a beautiful shimmer running throughout, that last colour is a particular favourite of mine, an iridescent mauve/gold that suits any skin tone as a subtle wash of colour or a brightening highlighter. 
Arctic Goddess Palette: €11 (LOOK at that blue!!)
Arctic Goddess Glosses: €9 (Caramel Sparkle, Pink Icicle, North Star)
This sparkling shimmer glosses are deceptively gloop free. Soft and comfortable on the lips, they're non sticky and light. I'm going to go with Caramel Sparkle here as my favourite, we know how I get around coffee coloured loveliness

Arctic Goddess NailWear Pro+ €8 (Arctic Waters, Chilling Teal & Green Goddess)

The pièce de résistance of the entire collection for me though is, unsuprisingly, the polishes. Using the fantastic NailWear Pro+ formula these colours would suit any pingys at all. 

  • Arctic Waters is a bright blue with beautiful silver microshimmer gleaming on the nail. 
  • Chilling Teal is a frosted pastel mint, again with silver bringing it to life in the sunshine. 
  • Green Goddess is, for all intents and purposes, a very close match for Chanel's Peridot. Leaning greener than the Chanel offering but still bursting with iridescence, this was on my nails for 4 days with no sign of chipping. Result!    
Arctic Goddess will be available from catalogues in November, so you don't have long to wait. Should you need a rep, you can find one here . What do we think? Is the frost winning you over?
