Aqua Eyes by Make Up For Ever Review | Waterproof Eyeliner & Shadow In One

Wednesday, August 11th, 2010

Makeup for ever aqua eyesMake Up For Ever Aqua Eyes is a is a eye liner and shadow in one. It is a waterproof formula that is designed to resist fading or running.

The pencil comes in a wide range of colors, so hopefully there will be a suitable shade to match any skin tone and personality.

Ladies from Amazon had mixed comments about Aqua Eyes. Some think its a brilliant formula that stays put all day with no smudging. They also like that its waterproof.

Other users seemed to have the opposite effect with this pencil. They found that it ran after a few hours giving them dark circles under the eyes. Some ladies found it didn't go on smoothly and tugged on their skin.

I don't know about you but I'm in 2 minds about trying it and it doesn't help that it is a little over priced too!

Avon Glimmersticks Eye Liner Review | Long Lasting Self Sharpening Easy To Use Pencil

Saturday, August 7th, 2010

Avon GlimmerstickAvon Glimmersticks Eye Liner is designed to define the eyes while also being easy to apply. Avon says it made this eye liner for easy use so it has a easy glide on color with long wear, self sharpening and its retractable.

Glimmersticks also come in a wide range of colors. I have a black one and it is really black not a greyish black like some brands. Unfortunately this eye liner isn't waterproof though, so you might want to look at other reviews if you need a waterproof one.

Avon guru's on think Glimmersticks eye liner is good as it lasts all day, goes on so smooth without tugging skin and the price is great.

Some other ladies weren't as impressed as they found it to smudge and not last very long.



Avon Glimmersticks Eye Liner costs $2.99 as its on sale now, but normally costs $6. Which is still a great deal at full price and is cheaper than most brands.
