Avon Supershock Gel Eyeliner Pencils

By Get Lippie

If yesterday’s £20 a pencil eyeliners were too rich for your blood, how does four for a tenner grab you?
I was idly browsing the Avon website a few weeks ago, and I noticed that they had their gel eyeliners on offer at £2.50 each, so I snapped a couple or four up, in plum, khaki, steel and bronze, and I’m very glad I did.  They’re a bargain even at full price of £6 each, and, to my mind, they’re just as good as the Armani ones I showed you yesterday. Nicer, possibly, as these have a lovely metallic sheen that is better than the slightly flat shades of the Armani pencils.

Again, these are one pass on clean, dry, unprimed skin.  On checking the pics against the ones I showed yesterday, I have to admit that there is slightly less pigment in the Avon pencils, but at this price, that’s to be expected.  But the shades are complex, with just a hint of micro-shimmer, which can be very flattering.

They last, however, just as well as pencils costing a lot more, and they don’t run or flake during the day.  They’re velvety soft on application though, and simply will not drag on the skin.

A bargain at twice the price.  These shades aren’t showing on the Avon website though – but they do now have the black, which they didn’t when I was buying, so if you can’t afford Armani, then snap these babies up!

The Fine Print: Bought and purchased with the pennies I earn from my day job. I do have a day job, I’m an accountant, but I used to be an Avon Lady.  Have I mentioned that before?  Grateful thanks go to today’s mystery swatching hand …
