Avon Extra Lasting Eyeshadow Pencils


It is hard to describe in words my love for these Avon Extra Lasting Eyeshadow Pencils. I discovered these a few months ago and have used them in my professional kit on every job since. 

This is your basic eye shadow pencil ( similar to Mally Evercolor Shadow Sticks or the Laura Mercier Caviar Sticks). They are extremely pigmented, super blend able and once they set they are waterproof. 

I apply these either all over the lid and blend them out as an eye shadow or use a brush with them to apply as an eye liner. 


From left to right: 
1. Shimmering Sand - a metallic cream
2. Crystal Taupe - a metallic taupe
3. Amethyst - a metallic light purplish brown
4. Topaz Shimmer - a metallic bronze
5. Rich Cocoa - a matte dark brown
6. Smokey Plum - a satin deep purple

There are 10 total shades in the line and I will probably be picking up the other 4 soon. These are on Avon website for $8.50 but currently on sale for $4.99.  I highly recommend these to anyone looking to add a new shade to there eye shadow routine. They are so easy to use and last so long on the eye.

These do take about 2 minutes to completely set so give them a moment to dry when using them as eye liner etc.

I do not have a bad word to say about this product. They are wonderful and cheap which is a killer combination.

I hope you all enjoyed reading this post.
