Today I am going to review for you my all time favourite blue eyeliner: Twilight Sparkle from Avon’s Glimmersticks Diamonds range.
Rs 299 for 0.28 g (More often than not, it is available on discount. I think I got it for Rs 150!)
The eyeliner comes in a retractable pencil form. Beware because the half centimeter rule applies here! For those of you unfamiliar with this rule: it applies for retractable eye and lip pencils, which tend to break if you twist up the stick too much! For this eyeliner too, only twist it up half a centimeter at a time or else it WILL break.
The eyeliner does not tug on my eyelids. It is highly pigmented – the swatch on my hand shows a single swipe, however it needs two or three swipes for the true colour to show up on my eyelids. It does not sting or irritate my eyes.
The colour twilight sparkle is a deep blue. As with all the Glimmersticks Diamonds eyeliners, it has fine shimmer particles embedded in it which show up when you apply the eyeliner. These shimmers catch the light and look very pretty on the eyes. Even though there’s a lot of glitter, it doesn’t feel gritty on your eyelids.
The eyeliner is smudge proof and water proof and stays on my eyelids for the whole day. It needs a makeup remover to be taken off completely – the shimmer is quite hard to remove!
When I saw quantity I was like what?! But the quantity provided for the price is quite satisfactory because it’ll last you a long time. So it’s nothing to worry about.
Avon Twilight Eyeliner ~ EOTD:
- Reasonably priced
- Sturdy packaging
- Smudge proof
- Stays for a good 7-8 hours
- Lovely deep blue shade
- Does not irritate eyes (I wear contact lenses and it’s fine for me!)
- No ingredients list mentioned
Final Word: I’ve not given it a 5/5 only because I can’t see the ingredients anywhere. You can’t find fault with this eyeliner otherwise. It’s a lovely shade of blue that really brings out the brown in my eyes and stays on for a long time.
Do I Recommend?:
Most definitely. I especially think this is a great budget buy for college girls!
Will I Repurchase?:
Not necessary because this will last me quite a while! I hoped you liked this review! If deep blue is not your colour then do check back because I’ll be reviewing Emerald Glow (a deep green shade) and Sparkling Silver too from this range. Emerald Glow is another one of my favorites :) also, if you don’t like shimmer in eyeliners, then you can check out Avon’s Glimmersticks eyeliners, which have almost the same texture and finish, but don’t have any shimmer. I’ll be reviewing a shade from that range as well!
