This was the first thing that I bought the moment I became an Avon rep.And throughout the year I’ve added a couple more to my collection.I have used the Lakme Nine To Five retractable eye liner and both of them are good but this one is a lot cheaper and has lasted longer than the Lakme one which finished up in a month flat.

- It’s the best thing ever for the waterline.I normally use it all over my waterline and bam that’s it.It does not smudge or budge until I say so.Which for me is everything since nothing else stays on my waterline.
- It’s pretty damn lasting.Whether its on the waterline or lash line.In fact it stays put even after I wash my face.
- From the above you might have gauged at its waterproof claims.If not then yeah its waterproof ;)
- Despite being waterproof removing it is really easy using cotton and cleanser.Though it takes extra efforts to come off the waterline.
- The colours are super intense.
- Its retractable.Translation, a cake walk to apply in the morning.
- A selection of fab shades.Covers almost all the basic shades.
- For an eyeliner of such amazing prowess the price is a bargain.And to top it off it’s on sale most of the time.
- It has a shade marker at the bottom of the pencil which makes identifying the shade really easy.
Wiped dry and with water(pretty vigorously too)
- The pencil does not glide on easily when applying on the lash lines.
- Retractable packaging makes it prone to breakage.
- Since the pencil is not sharpened regularly it might be unhygienic but that’s a dilemma with any retractable pencil.
- Available only through Avon reps.
Love It Or Chuck It
