Avon Glimmerstick review and my kajal nostalgia

I wasn't a makeup fanatic even when I was in my college.Well, I loved wearing my red lipsticks. yet, I never wore much of kajal or liners back in those days. I was also perturbed because every time I wore my kajal, it would smudge and spread and give me raccoon eyes.

When I saw the glimmerstick in the brochure, I wanted to give it a try and guess what? I was happy. I was so happy at the end of the day on which I wore it, I recommended it to my friend as well who has always been loyal to it ever since.

I have these two shades now only -- Black and Twilight

The black is a solid black which is pretty dark and well pigmented. Twilight is a navy blue which has dense glitters and it look so lovely!

My Experience:
Likes:
If you think thesea re like Faces Cosmetics Longstay liners, no, these are not.These are more like Lakme 9 to 5 Eye pencils which I had bought right after. These  are slightly more waxy. But if you compare the price ( these are often on sale and would comedown somewhere to 150 INR a piece).
The pencil is not exactly like the Faces Longwear ones, but still it lasts all day on my oily lids with very little smudging. To say it remains completely in place would not be correct, but still, it does not melt o spread around which I find quite impressive
Plus the price ... I feel for the quality, it;s quite reasonable!!

Dislikes:
The only thing is that I have to get these through a rep and I don't like my rep :( * hope she is not reading this* LOL

 Here are the swatches


Do you like colored liners? or do you prefer just black?

    1. I'm not much into grey, but I feel blue kind of does the job of imparting a bit of smoky effect at the same time doesn;t make me look dul. But then, you are way lighter than me . :) Which ones are your favorite Ruby?

  3. I am in love with Glimmersticks in Saturn Grey these days. I do agree that they would budge slightly after five hours or so on super oily lid. Great picks! <3
