Avon Glimmersticks Diamonds Eyeliners - Swatches, Photos, Review

Avon Glimmersticks Diamonds Eyeliener Pencils

I had ordered the Avon Glimmersticks Diamonds Eyeliner Pencils ages back but got them only last weekend.  I am in a no-eyeliner phase right now, so I wasn't too excited to finally get these, but once I swatched them I really did like them a lot.  Unlike the older Avon Glimmersticks, these have a bit of a shimmer - nothing too obvious, though they do tend to sparkle more under artificial lighting than dayilght.

My Experience with the Avon Glimmersticks Diamonds Eyeliner Pencils

These are retractible pencils, twist to get the pencil out and twist to get it back in.  They are quite soft and can break easily if you twist out too much length.  The colour stays on quite long and does not smudge unless intentinoally/unintentionally rubbed.  The brown colour in the swatches is "Bronze Glow" which is one of the older Glimmersticks - not Glimmersticks Diamonds - and does not have any shimmer to it.  I added it in the photos by mistake and later got too lazy to take another set of photos :P :P  As for staying power, I found that varies depending on the climate - under more humid/hot conditions, the shimmer particles tend to move around the eye area a bit.  This can be reduced greatly, though, with the use of a primer before applying these eyeliners.  At any rate, I would recommend these pencils for the more casual/night time rather than a more formal venue and/or day time use.

Avon Glimmersticks Diamonds Eyeliner Pencils - Swatches/EOTD

I tried Emrald Glow on my eyes.  Ever since I started trying eyeshadows, I find it very odd to use just eyeliner on my eyes (!!!), so I smudged a bit of the same colour all over my eyelid after applying the eyeliner.  Mascara and kajal, and I thought this was better than my earlier way of applying, which would have been just drawing a line with the eyeliner.  The shimmer is a bit exaggerated thanks to my fab photography skills, but it's more toned down and nonmessy in real life :D

Swatches:  (L to R):  Smokey Diamonds, Black Ice, Twilight Sparkle, Emerald Glow
Brownish-bronze swatch - bronze glow (not a part of the Glimmersticks Diamonds)
I liked the Avon Glimmersticks Diamonds Eyeliner pencils, more than the regular Glimmersticks.  Despite the shimmer, the colours are all pretty wearable, at least for a darker-skinned person like me.  I don't think these are suitable for use on the waterline, though.

Have you tried these pencils? Do you have a favorite?

Cost:  About Rs. 150/0.28 g (on discount).

    ReplyDelete
  5. Bronze one - this Avon one - I don't like too much..it's okayish..but it looks very good on my friend..she uses that all the time..green for upper lining and grey or brown for lower - it sounds too crazy and mad but somehow she looks very pretty when she wears that combination!

    ReplyDelete
  6. yeah blue and that black ice too...I think that with Chanel khakhi will look gorgoussss!!!

    ReplyDelete
  7. I always always always keep using that Chanel Khaki..is the only eyeshadow of mine that has a depression now in it :D :D :D

    ReplyDelete
  8. hawwww..use something from inglot too na..I think it has some similar khakhi kinda shade..a bit toned down!! I remember!!!!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  12. Aww..you call them and shout at them..and then go see the online catalogue :D How is the brush?

    ReplyDelete
  13. its looking nice..one end is the brush..the other end has sponge applicator and they have given a separate sponge applicator extension as well..donno how useful it'd be!! :P :P

    ReplyDelete
  14. I have the emerald glow & twilight sparkle.....

    ReplyDelete
  15. I don't like the sponge ends..but I think they are useful for smudging naaa..how much does this brush cost?

    Rajeshwari - It takes me a long time to get anything I order - is from my friend and I just collect it from her when I meet her - so I ordered all 4 colours and saved myself the trouble :P

    ReplyDelete
  16. I think at consultant discount it came for 120 Rs...On actual price it might be somewhere around Rs.150/-

    ReplyDelete
  17. rads...do they stay for long time ??? u know the faces pencils i bought last time...i love them...but the prob is its supposed to be water proof, smudge proof etc etc...but it just vanishes from my eyelid...and whatever itsy bitsy is left has to be removed with a remover....i just hate that...so me looking for something that will stay for a real long time....i want all colors :|

    ReplyDelete
  18. cali ..i wanted to ask u...can u let me know the cost of that velvel mask ????? and night cream tooo...

    ReplyDelete
  19. and today i just did what you did here... spread the pencil liner over the lid and then wear a black liner over it.... :D

    ReplyDelete
  20. Priya - these stay on - no wandering right up to the eyebrow area kind of tendencies :P :P These aren't very creamy, and that might be the reason. Generally, creamier ones are easier to smudge but then they are also faster to travel all around :P :P ..or so I thinkkkkkk.

    ReplyDelete
  21. We makeup newbies have to do all such crazy things to survive Priya :D :D :D

    ReplyDelete
  22. You can pat some eyeshadow over a smudged pencil, and it will stay on longer.

    ReplyDelete
  23. yaa...after some time...i will find more of the eyepencil over the brow area than on the lid :| not creamy but can be spread easily?

    ReplyDelete
  24. i know rati was tellng abt patting eyeshadow..but u need a similar color...i hardly hv any eyeshadows ... :D

    ReplyDelete
  25. i should get the basics atleast..i will do that when i go to delhi..get the custom made palette :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. and i think the first thing i need is a good base...my lids are super oily...i think all the oil of my face goes there :D

    ReplyDelete
  27. Oh these aren't that easy to spread as compared to the creamier ones, but it's a nice compromise.

    ReplyDelete
  28. ok....but the color has comeout really nice on your lid

    ReplyDelete
  29. er..Priyaa..That Royal Velvet Ultimate Night cream is for 990 rs!! and the mask is for 690! :)

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  34. Noopur had reviewed a foundation on IMBB - she tried samples - so I assumed other products also might be available in sample sizes.

    how are you doing..Well this is my first comment on your blog..

    Me liking your post...liking the blue pencil...I was hunting for the majestic plum vch they had earlier..I guess they dont anymore...sob sob...

    If could suggest me some purple as in deep purple grapevine kinda eye pencil vch is waterline safe and doesnt smudge I'd be grateful to you..

    Regards,
    Dipti

    ReplyDelete
  62. ahhh amazing. I have been eying on these liners for quite some while. will get them now :D

    ReplyDelete
  63. I have the shimmery glimmerstick....the black one and you are correct...there is not much of a shimmer....but once the colour fades, there is still bit of shimmer here and there na.....I like it that way too.....I liked your idea of smudging it somewhat like an eyeshadow..........oh you lazy, we all know.....you needn't mention it again and again.................khikhi khi....

    ReplyDelete
  64. lol..Hi Jomol!! :D..and Good morning Radssssssss and Priya!! :D and all silent readers too

    ReplyDelete
  65. Hey Cali................good morning................:))

    ReplyDelete
  66. Hi Dipti..sorry about your comment going missing..no idea what happened :) Oh I love Majestic Plum - I do hope Avon continues to make it. As a replacement, I think Colorbar Prunella is a similar colour, but I do not know if it is waterline safe.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Hii Insiya - these are really good, do check them out the next time you find them in the catalogue :)

    Jomol - :P :P :P :P get the rest of the colours also :D :D Are very very nice.

    ReplyDelete
  68. ok..Now I am asking for a recommendation...Rads...morning morning me asking you to lagaaofy your brains!! :P :P ..I need a nice white eye pencil that is water line safe..Please suggest some good affordable one!! :D :D Thanksssssssss

    ReplyDelete
  69. I have no clue about something like that in the drugstore brands - might check it next time I am at some shop. I have seen those in high-end brands, though. Considering I am blessed with extra-huge eyes and am always looking for pencils that would make my eyes look even a bit smaller - white pencils and me would be continents apart :D :D :D :D

    ReplyDelete
  70. he he he... :P Ok..tell those higher end brands then!! :P I need a nice white pencil..the only good one I've found out is Lancome Le Crayon!! Donno how much it costs!!!

    ReplyDelete
  71. Chanel has a white - costs around Rs. 1650 I think. Lancome pencils are longer and cost slightly less than that. MAC had a LE pencil, I think, that could be used on the waterline - Chromagraphic?

    ReplyDelete
  72. hmmmmmmmm.....I think I'll go for MAC!!

    ReplyDelete
  73. Better check at store regarding availability (doubtful :P :P ) and ask if they are waterline safe.

    ReplyDelete
  74. yeah..I need waterline safe one..my eyes are small size naa...I avoid putting kajal in my waterline..I usually apply kajal on lower lashline only!!

    ReplyDelete
  75. Love the blue and black ones..and looks really good on you..just like an eyeshadow. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  76. Is easy peasy and not too bad I think :) :) Have you tried anything from Avon? I never get their skincare but I do get tempted by eyeliners and a few of their lipsticks :D

    ReplyDelete
  77. goood eveneingsssss......rads do you think your friend can get all the color phor me ??????

    ReplyDelete
  78. Ya she could - but it's costing Rs. 229 this month - no discount on it.

    ReplyDelete
  80. I am so sorry..It's 189 on discount..I mixed up the price..you can also check it online every month in the brochure.

    ReplyDelete
  97. yessss!!!!! i missed you rads!:'(

    ReplyDelete
  98. thanx Rads 4 d review. Choosing 4m ur swatches, I bought d smokey diamonds shade n i m very much liking it. On repeated application it gives d look of black eyeliner! It lines my eyes in a natural way & doesnt look as if I hv applied any make up. But yes, d glitter is a bit of a prob, by evening it spreads
    And yes, it doesnt smudge n is water proof as well. So now i dont hv to worry abt my looks once applied it.
    But now after several applications, it has become slightly sticky & transfers a bit too much of d product on my lashes than I want. This happened to my Lakme Black Satin Eyeliner also. I dont know y. :(

    ReplyDelete
  99. Hi Anu..glad you liked the product. That usually happens if you apply a thicker line and also because summers it gets very hot so products melt faster. Try using an eyelid primer or powder your lashes before applying the eyeliner. Also, press eyeshadow directly on to the eyeliner to set it in place - for example, if you draw with black diamonds, take a thin brush and press black powder eyeshadow directly only on to the eyeliner line that you have drawn. This will set the liner some more without changing the color too much. Generally, though these products will migrate like that especially in summers and heat, so maybe you can try a waterproof liquid eyeliner instead if you want to apply thicker lines - Lakme Avon all make them - and also Maybelline makes gel liners - plain black or even ones with shimmer in them which will stay better. Hope that helps..thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment :)
