Avon Chopsticks liner

I bought this on sale , its a beautiful product with such gorgeous colors .
They give such a fantastic cat eye .

They are like crayon type of liner with a really sharp point .

Sadly the chopstick shaped nib broke quite easily so I only got about 3 uses out of it .

I really liked it maybe next time i just have to be a bit more gentle with it .

Avon ColorTrend Eyeliner - Black Cat Eyes

I love the cute little packaging the eyeliner forms part of. Easy to use, small enough to fit in my purse and easy to apply. I will definitely continue buying this eyeliner. It is simply fabulous! It is very affordable and I have been using it for a month now and it just lasts and lasts...

Avon Colourtrend Chopsticks Eyeliner

These remind me of the (Revlon, Clinique and Maybeline) chubby stick/crayon lipsticks because of their packaging..Is it just me? From the brochure I thought they were felt-tipped eyeliners so I was surprised when I got mine and saw that it was a crayon type eyeliner instead.
I like them but I also don't like them.
I like them because its easy to apply, it gives great control over the thickness of the line and its shaped to fit the hand properly.
I dont like them because that tip bit is all you get. And as you use it, the nib gets thicker, yes yes I know, its for a cateye, but how thick is your flick going to be if your inner corner line is already thick? (maybe i used it wrong??). I also did not like it because on my eyes, it did not last long enough. Also the pigmentation (I got the black one) was a little weak for my taste.
It's good for its price but I wouldn't repurchase it.

Avon Colortrend Chopsticks Eyeliner in Black Cat Eyes

I purchased mine in Black Cat eyes, It is tricky to use, but once you get the hang of it It gives amazing results. My tip is starting to go blunt, so its not as effective anymore as the eyeliner is shaped from narrow to wide, i find it more difficult to apply and I can no longer create 'perfect cat eyes' as it has lost its precision factor. Now it just gets a bit messy, great idea, but not perfectly executed. I won't purchase this again.

Avon

I love Avon, it is difficult to resist them when I am sitting in my most comfy chair flicking through their newest Magazine, so I was hooked when I saw the advert for these, I am not really a Eye girl but this promised perfect Cats Eyes, and the price was really good too.
The product was a bit tricker to use, and I did not really end up with perfect Cats Eyes, more smoky than precise but they were very pretty colours and I do use them all the time.

Avon Colortrend Chopsticks Eyeliner in Black Cat Eyes and Exotic Violet

Aaawww, the allure of an Avon Brochure, no matter how much I resist I always end up purchasing something or the other from Avon monthly. My latest buy was the fun and easy to use Chopstick Eyeliners from their Colortrend range.

The ad in their brochure was all fun and colourful and immediately hooked on wanting to try them out. At R29.95 each I opted to get two and save me some time when trying out a flicked cat-eye look. There are 5 colours to choose from-
-Black Cat Eyes
-Exotic Violet
-Skyline Blue
-Huntress Green
-Smouldering Silver

This eyeliner is designed to give you perfectly defined eyes with ultimate control. It claims to offer high impact colour with no skipping or slipping. On receiving my Avon goodies, I was quite perturbed at the size of the packaging and at how small and light the eyeliner was. It is extremely dainty. It’s a white marker like base in plastic with blue writing; the lid is clear which allows you to see the tipped liner. The base on which the liner sits is blue in colour.

I immediately tested out the colours on a blank white page and was very disappointed in both the colour choices I made and the consistency of the liner. The liner is much like a crayon and mine had some hassle on application where no colour was coming through. After some pushing and prodding, the colour was visible. The Black and Violet look exactly the same and offer no variation as showed in their ad. On eyelids however a slight difference is observed. The liner glides on easily and is easy to handle but did not last long at all. After a mere few hours, the colour had almost vanished and an oily residue was left on my eyelids. I also found it doesn’t adhere well if used on top of an eye primer or eye shadow.

Although the size and shape of the canister allows for easy use, there is no twist tool. This is quite worrying to me for many reasons including the tip size. For now, the tip is pointed and thin; this allows for maximum control in achieving a perfectly neat lined eye but what happens when this gets blunt? And if “sharpening” the liner helps, what happens to all the liner we lose in the process? Clearly, not a very well thought component of Avon’s manufacturing process.

As much as I love the shape and idea of this eyeliner, I’m definitely not going to purchase them again (even though the Huntress Green keeps calling to me). I hope Avon catch on with this tiny flaw and improve on both this and the formula for their chopstick eyeliner as I’d love to purchase then.
