Avon Haul: Glimmersticks Diamonds Eyeliner and Ideal Shade Concealer Stick

Hi All, this is my first article and I couldn’t think of writing about any other stuff than my Avon Glimmersticks Diamonds eyeliners and Avon Ideal Shade Concealer stick which I bought in a recent haul. Surfing through many make up blogs, I read so much about Avon glimmerstick eyeliners-people raving about their superb staying power and color payoff that I was tempted to order a couple of them. Also in some blogs (especially from UK where AVON is one of the most popular brands) I read about the AVON Glimmersticks Diamonds eyeliners and swatches which showed awesome colors richly embellished with glitters but sadly these were not available in India. So as soon as my eyes fell upon the Avon’s September catalog, I literally jumped with joy. The AVON Glimmersticks Diamonds eyeliners are here- must be because of the onset of festival fiesta at this time. Along with these I also ordered the Avon Ideal Shade Concealer. I don’t have dark circles but have deep curiosity about concealers especially ones which come in easy to apply creamy stick forms.

AVON Glimmersticks Diamonds Eyeliners

So, these are the AVON Glimmersticks Diamonds eyeliners as shown in AVON online catalog. These are priced at Rs 179 each. There was an offer of two glimmersticks for Rs. 299 for this month (that means 1 for Rs 150!! WoW! ) and the Avon representative told me that I would get one free if I bought 4 of them. However, for a trial I ordered the Black Ice and Twilight Sparkle (blue). Four shades are available currently but one of the most beautiful plum shades (saw a swatch and FOTD in some blog) is still not here.

These (pic below) are the pretties that I got. These are retractable pencils which glide on smoothly on the upper eyelids as well as can be used on the lower lids (which I found difficult with other long staying retractable liners like the Lakme 9 to 5). However, a word of caution: Do Not apply pressure and do not roll out more than ½ a centimeter of this product as the tips will break as happened to my Black Ice.

You can see the amount of product you will get with this: I guess even using every day these may last well for 6 months (Reminder : the price is only Rs 179 for single ones!!!) Now the Swatches:

As you see the shimmer payoff is really good. The blue color is excellent and I was looking exactly for this dark blue shade for a long time but every time ended up buying either a powder blue (Maybelline eyestudio) or a royal blue (Lakme Nine to 5 in Sapphire)

Pros of AVON Glimmersticks Diamonds:

  • Great shimmery finish
  • Smooth application
  • Lasting power is really good (well I haven’t off course tested these on a Kolkata July day! That’s like putting any makeup through acid test !)
  • Price!! OMG I haven’t yet found a retractable long wearing liner at this low a price!! Highly
  • go-n-grab-able!!!)

Cons:
Particularly nothing but only those typical problems with all retractable liners: can’t use it in hurry as these will tend to break if you apply pressure and that ½ cm rule, rest everything is nice with it.

Overall Rating: 4+/5

AVON Ideal Shade Stick Concealer

Well this is my first concealer. I read rave reviews about this one, telling that it’s really creamy and blends like a dream. So just for trial’s sake I got this one, and such trials don’t harm much when the price is only Rs 179!!!

This is the page from Avon’s online catalog. It is available in 2 shades Medium and light. I ordered the Medium (that’s one problem with online shopping-you just have to pray that you get the right shades!).

Below shown are the pictures of the product and swatches. The amount of product is not much, not a problem for me because I don’t really have the dark circle problem or major blemishes and acne marks to hide. The formulation is really creamy and it’s easy to apply as well: dab on the ring finger and pat under eyes.

  • Creamy formula
  • Easy to blend
  • Price (Rs 179!)

Cons: It may be the wrong shade, or my lack of experience with concealers, thar after applying ,my under eyes are looking like Celina Jaitley’s (white!! That is..hehe) I think I need more of video tutorials on concealer application. The option of shades is also pretty limited.

P.S: I was thinking of using this as an eyeshadow primer, the creamy-yet-non sticky formula might work well in setting powder shadows for a long time.

Overall rating: :-* :-*:-*

    2. Hey Sree,I think the Avon store is near Rabindra Sadan Metro station..u know, u will get it if u walk in the direction of Hotel Hindustan International..but my AVON lady is from Tollygunge and she delivers my stuff at my University premises without complaint :inlove:
