ANEW Youth-Awakening

This is AVON's ANEW Youth-Awakening Eyeshadow & Primer Kit in Smokey Violet.

So I didn't like this. Pretty colors but the consistanty of the eyeshadow is very chalky and not pigmented enough.  I really caked it on to see the color.  After application, the color is more a plum than the violet that it appears to be.  I also wish that the primer was a little thicker to allow for the shadow to stick more efficiently.  You have to allow it time to absorb/dry.  Now that I think about it, since I tried them together, maybe I need to use the eyeshadow alone or with a different primer.  Maybe it is the primer that ruins the eyeshadow.  It's a nice concept however, but it just does not work for me.
