I always though eyeliner is eyeliner until I started having to deal with smudge, or what I like to call, the panda effect. So my hunt began for an eyeliner that can stay on, stay put until it’s time to come off. I decided to try out the Avon True Color Glimmerstick Eyeliner and I am here to tell you all about it and my view of it.
Avon TrueColor Glimmerstick Eyeliner – What they Say
The Avon True Color Glimmerstick Eyeliner is a retractable eyeliner with an improved more intense formula which ensures a soft glide, bold and all day colour. It also claims to be vitamin enriched and that you can get the bold colour in just 1 swipe. It claims to last up to 10 hours, is waterproof and smudge proof, it has a creamy, smooth colour and has a shimmer finish that lasts all day.
How I use it
I have theAvon True Color Glimmerstick Eyeliner in Black. I usually apply it in my lowerwater line, I sometimes apply it directly in the waterline to tie up my eye lookand other times I smudge it a little on my water line to create a smoked out look.
When it comes to application, yes! It definitely applies easily, in a sense that you don’t struggle to have the colour pay off. It applies really dark so the pigment is really good. What I also like is that the point is also easy to navigate. I generally gravitate towards retractable eyeliners because you don’t have to worry about sharpening which is a chore on its own.
From myexperience, it does last long, with my long days, I have worn it for more than10 hours and yes, I have to actively remove it when I am removing my makeup.
The one thing that I don’t particularly like is that it is shimmer. I know the packaging says it but a girl had to try. Reason why is that I find that when it’s shimmer its more likely to smudge and that’s it. I prefer a more matte eyeliner and that’s just a matter of preference. Nothing personal.
The buying process is very painful for me. I’m a natural sucker for convenience so because of that I’m just not a fan. So the smudging mixed with the complicated buying process is unfortunately too much for me so I’m giving this eyeliner a thumbs down.
Avon is usually sold by distributors which is where my mom bought this eyeliner for me but you can also but online now you can check it out here. It retails for R89.99
