As I promised, I’m back with a review of a gorgeous brown eye liner from Avon’s Glimmersticks range. This one is called Bronze Glow and it is one of my favorites! Read on to find out why.
Rs 259 for 0.28g. Like most Avon products, it is usually available on discount. Currently it is available for Rs 179.
The eyeliner is in a retractable pencil form and there’s a colored band at the end corresponding to the shade of the eyeliner.
What I love about this eyeliner is the shade of brown. Most brown eyeliners are so dark so they appear almost black, or as if your black eye liner has faded into some lighter shade. But this one, it’s a beautiful icy metallic brown – like copper but darker. It’s true to its name – it really does have a gleaming, metallic finish which I absolutely love.
I think this is a great eye liner for all eye colours. It is also such a wearable shade; you can wear it in the day time or night time! However for a few fair to medium skin toned girls, this shade may be close to your natural skin colour, in which case it won’t show up that well on you. So have a look at the swatches and decide if it will go with your skin tone :) (On my hands it’s darker but it becomes slightly lighter on the eyelids as you can see!)
On my eyes you can see that this eyeliner has a sort of metallic matte finish. I’ve applied two-three swipes each along my upper lash line and waterline. It doesn’t really show up that well on the waterline but provides a hint of definition. You can see that some places, it has settled into tiny creases in my eyelid. This isn’t noticeable from far but if you have these small vertical creases along your upper lash line (I think it is because I pull my skin taut while applying eyeliner!) then you may want to rethink purchasing this. I don’t really mind, it isn’t that noticeable :)
This eyeliner is totally waterproof and also smudge proof. Once you apply it, it sets within seconds. So you can’t smudge it for a smokey look. It stays on for a good 5-6 hours on my semi-oily eyelids. You’ll need a makeup remover/cleanser to remove it.
What I like?:
- Lovely metallic brown shade
- Stays on for 5-6 hours
- Smudge proof
- Reasonable price
What I didn’t like?:
- Ingredients list is not mentioned
- Tends to emphasize creases
If you are looking for a wearable budget brown eye liner then your search ends here. It is a lovely copper-bronze shade that looks gorgeous on every skin tone!
Do I Recommend?:
Absolutely, despite the cons. It’s one of the best brown eyeliners in the market according to me. If you have light brown or hazel eyes I think this looks even better!
Will I Repurchase?:
Yes if I finish it :) but that won’t happen anytime soon – there is still a lot left!
