AVON EXTRA LASTING eye liner BLACK : Review/EOTD



Avon EXTRA LASTING eye liner (RS 349 / 2.5 ml) in Black is a true rich dark black liquid eyeliner. 



The eyeliner comes in a  small bottle with a conical screw top lid that houses the felt tip applicator. The eye liner is easy to handle and carry around.

The eyeliner has rich pigmentation, giving a dark black finish in about two strokes. It dries to a slightly shiny finish. However, you DO need to shake the bottle before every use to mix up the ingredients inside because otherwise you get a watery line. Also, it is only suitable for use along the upper lashline and not on the lower waterline because if it gets into the eyes , it stings badly. This is also mentioned on the pack.

True to it's name, the eye liner stays on me for very long, more than 10+ hours without any smudging or fading. It is water resistant but not completely waterproof. The felt tip applicator makes the eye liner very easy to apply and I have absolutely no trouble in creating sharp wings with this eyeliner.

The biggest con about this eyeliner is that when you try to remove it, it doesn't really get off easily with an eye makeup remover. And when you swipe a couple of times, it comes off in flakes. This part is quite irritating because the tiny flakes might get inside the eye and sting and irritate them. The liner doesn't even come off neatly with a foaming facial wash either and ultimately it is a lot of effort to take it off your lids.

Overall, The Avon EXTRA LASTING eye liner is a good option for those looking for a rich dark black eye liner within a budget. The finish is a bit on the glossier side, so those who prefer matte finish liners may not like this one. It is not safe on the waterline and is a lot of effort to remove.

I don't recommend!

  6. Agni Di, can you suggest a good matte finish liner with felt tip that is not too expensive?
    I already have this one from Avon and I'm kind of bored with the glossy look.
