Avon Glimmersticks Eye Liner in Blackest Black and Cosmic Brown

Hey everyone!

Do you dislike sharpening your eyeliners? I don't really mind it but retractable ones are such a comfort to use.

That's why I immediately bought these couple of eyeliners from Avon when they were in a promo some months ago.

The packaging is classy and slim. Easy to bring along in your kikay kits!

The product is quite soft. My Blackest Black one broke off while I was swatching it. :(

This is my Cosmic Brown. I've used it once or twice and here's how long it is just to give you an idea. :P

Pigmented, right? These are done with just one swatch. I like that they are matte too. It goes along with a lot of makeup looks. I usually use mine when I try to do smokey looks. And also, these are creamy which makes them easy to glide on the skin. :)

This is long lasting if I compare it with pencil liners but it still creases on me when I use this. It also doesn't stay long on my waterline. The ones I have are not waterproof.

But all in all, this is actually good! It's inexpensive and works great! I'll probably buy the Blackest Black one again if it were in a promo again. :)

Do you use eyeliners from Avon too?


Cheers,
DAWN
