Review: Avon Ultra Glimmerstick Lip Liners

13:10

Hey Beauties!

It feels like all I'm testing these days are lip products and boy, did I stock up on these. I have a nice selection of matte lipsticks still coming your way. Today however, we'll talk about Avon's Ultra Glimmerstick Lip Liners


Lip pencils come in a classic black plastic packaging. Pencils are thin and look sleek. The writing on it is silver.

On the bottom of each pencil is a small line which shows you what shade it is. The name of shades are also written on the bottom.





Pencil itself is very thin and so is the product inside.  In the beginning it's sharpen, but with use it gets a bit thicker. It's still a very precise pencil and outlining your lips shouldn't be a  problem. 


The range includes 7 shades in total and each has 0.28 grams in it. Regular price of these is 6€, but you know Avon, they always have some deals going on. Currently you can get them for 3.90€ (Slovenia). You can buy Avon products from Avon sellers or find official Avon webpage of your country. 


The shade range is very "classic". You have nudes, browns, pinks and reds. No brighter or unusual colors. 

The formula is creamy but still firm. If I compare it to Essence longlasting lipliners, I'd say that Avon's are firmer and a lot less creamy. Which means you can get a really nice precise outline, but it also makes it easy enough for you to spread it on your lips. I hate those really hard pencils that you have to press on the lips and then almost always break some off, because you're pushing too hard. These are just firm enough and creamy enough to make a nice easy application. 

They absolutely will accentuate any dry patches, like most lip pencils.

It's a pigmented and slightly waxy formula, but it almost reminds me more of crayons. The pigmentation with lighter shades will still let your freckles see through. 

They are long lasting (I don't check the actual hours) and prevent lipstick from bleeding out.


Nude - yellow toned light brown.



Simply Spice - medium warm brown.



Mystery Mauve - pinkish medium brown. It's very similar to Simply Spice, but a bit more pink toned.



Pink Cashmere - pearly shimmery light pink. 



Pink Bouquet - medium warm pink.



Coral Desire - warm brick orange based brown. 



True Red - pink based red.



I love that they have a nice nude brown - Nude, because I've been searching for such shade in our drugstores and all lighter nudes are always pink based, which really bothers me. I also like Simply Spice for my brown lipsticks and one of my favorite and most unique shades is Coral Desire. 


These lip liners are nice addition to all my lipsticks. The shade range is very classic and it will suit most your usual lipstick shades. You won't find a lip liner for all the bright and purple shades that you own, though. Formula is just firm enough and not too creamy, which makes for a nice application. I am not fussy about lip liners, so I really like these.

Zdi se da te dni testiram samo še izdelke za ustnice. Ampak v kratkem času sem si res naredila polno zalogo šmink in svinčnikov. V prihodnjih dneh lahko pričakujete še več ocen mat šmink. Danes bom govorila o Avon Ultra Glimmerstick svinčnikih za ustnice. 

Svinčniki imajo klasično črno embalažo in so precej tanki. Pisava je srebrna.

Na dnu je majhen trak, ki označuje odtenek, ki se skriva v svinčniku. Tam na koncu je napisano tudi ime vsakega odtenka.

Sam svinčnik je zelo tanek in takšen je tudi izdelek znotraj embalaže. Na začetku so svinčniki ošiljeni, kar pa se s časom obrabi. Še vedno je sam svinčnik precej natančen in ne bi smeli imeti nikakršnih problemom z obrisovanjem ustnic.

V kolekciji najdete 7 odtenkov in v vsakem je 0.28 grama izdelka. Redna cena je 6€, ampak saj veste, Avon ima vedno dobre akcije. Trenutno jih lahko dobite za 3.90€. Avon izdelke lahko kupite pri prodajalcih Avona ali jih kontaktirajte kar preko njihove spletne strani.

Nabor odtenkov je zelo klasičen. Vsebuje nekaj nevtralnih, rjavih, roza in rdečih odtenkov. Nič norih živih odtenkov. 

Formula je kremasta, a vseeno precej trda. Če jih primerjam z Essence longlasting lipliner, so Avonovi bolj trdi in manj kremasti. To pomeni, da lahko narišete res natančno črto, hkrati pa so dovolj kremasti, da jih lahko lepo razporedite po ustnicah. Sovražim zelo trde svinčnike zaradi katerih jih moram tiščati na ustnice in jih po tem seveda večino odrgam od sile. Ti so ravno dovolj trdi in hkrati kremasti, da je nanašanje lahko. 

Seveda bodo poudarili suhe predele kot vsi svinčniki.

So pigmentirani in malo voskasti, čeprav me bolj spominjajo na voščenke. Pigmentantiranost svetlih odtenkov ne bo prekrila lepotnih pik ali drugih nepravilnosti.

So dobro obstojni (ne preverjam obstojnosti vsako uro) in preprečujejo, da bi šminka zašla za linijo svinčnika.

Nude - svetlo rjava z rumenim podtonom.
Simply Spice - topla srednje rjava.
Mystery Mauve - roza srednje rjava. Je zelo podobna Simply Spice, ampak bolj roza.
Pink Cashmere - bisernato bleščeča svetlo roza.
Pink Bouquet - srednja topla roza.
Coral Desire - topla rjava z oranžnim podtonom.
True Red - roza rdeča. 

Zelo mi je všeč, da ima Avon v naboru svetlo rjavo - Nude, ker sem poskušala iskati tak odtenek v naših drogerijah, kjer pa so vsi svetli odtenki vedno roza. Všeč mi je tudi Simply Spice za vse moje rjave šminke in en mojih najljubših unikatnih odtenkov je Coral Desire. 

Ti svinčniki so zanimiv dodatek mojim šminkam. Nabor odtenkov je zelo klasičen in se bo odlično skladal z večino vaših šmink. V naboru ne boste našli žive in vijolične odtenke. Formula je ravno trdna dovolj in hkrati ne preveč kremasta, kar omogoča dobro nanašanje. Sama nisem preveč izbirčna glede svinčnikov za ustnice, zato so mi ti zelo všeč.

*Izdelke mi je poslalo podjetje Avon.

  1. Nude mi izgleda edini, za katerega nisem prepričana, če bi mi pristajal, ostali so pa čisto vsi prekrasni, sploh True Red. :)
