Avon Glimmersticks Diamond Eyeliner - Swatched!

Along with the Avon gel eyeliners that I recently wrote about and swatched, I also purchased the full set of their Glimmersticks Diamond Eye Liners too; these are also currently in the half price sale for £3 each and there are 6 colours available.

Top L-R Twilight Sparkle, Black Ice, Brown Sugar, Sugar Plum, Emerald Glow, Smokey Diamond

I’ve swatched using my flash for most of the pictures, to show the sparkle effect but there are photos without flash that I will mark as being without flash as I go, so you know which is which! I've also tried to show a few angles so you can see how the light catches the sparkle.

Colour payoff isn’t quite as spectacular as the gel eyeliners but with a few swipes I was able to get a very decent colour and effect! A little trick that helps is to slightly warm the liners by rolling in your hand for about 30 seconds, it just helps for a smoother, easier application with no drag!

Without flash:

I actually kept the liners on my hand overnight as I thought I’d see how well they lasted being brushed by the duvet (luckily one of our darker ones) and generally moved around, and actually they lasted really well (see the pictures below). If they can withstand that then I feel confident they’d last on a night out.

The morning after (without flash):

I love the sparkly colours and would completely recommend them if you want to jazz up an otherwise neutral makeup look, or also perfect for if you want to go bold and make a statement with your eye makeup!
