I have to admit, I haven’t always been a fan of lip liners and they aren’t really a part of my makeup routine. I used to think that they were old fashioned and not really worth the extra step when it comes to doing my makeup. I only have a few minutes to do my makeup on a daily basis because I always wake up late for school (oops) so I usually have do it SUPER quickly! The few times I use lip liners is when I go for bold red lips. However, being the makeup lover that I am, I got really excited when I got to play with the Avon Ultra Glimmerstick Lip Liners from Avon. I received the ff: Pink Bouquet, Peach Envy, Red Brick.
These pencils look like any other pencil liners in the market. I don’t think people can make more innovations when it comes to lip liners anyway. Each pencil costs P250 and contains 0.28g each. I like that each pencil indicates its color near the end of the pencil. The pencil is retractable which is also nice.
What I Love
The colors of these pencils are beautiful and wearable. Pink Bouquet is a beautiful pink shade, Peach Envy is a peachy nude shade while Red Brick is literally a brick red shade. The shades are color true to what you see one the pencil. I like that these are retractable which is perfect for girls who are always on the go and who don’t got time for sharpening. I hate having to sharpen my eyeliners. Imagine having to sharpen an eye or lip pencil and having to look for a trash can to dispose the shavings.

I also enjoyed applying these pencils on my lips because they are very creamy and glide on easily. The quality of these pencils are simply superb. Applied by themselves, the finished look is similar to a matte lipstick. It is best to apply a lipstick or a gloss though because lipliners are really supposed to be applied as a base to lipsticks and lipglosses. I also like that the lip liners make my lips look fuller and let my lipsticks stay on longer. Lastly, these lip liners also help intensify the colors of lipsticks!
What I don’t like
I find these lip liners to be a bit small than the usual lip liners. My Nyx lip liner pencils are about 1G each and cost only $3.50 (153.61). I don’t really mind paying a few pesos more for these though because of all the good things I just said above.

For those of you who are like me who have not been using liners ever, these liners might be a good place to start. The quality of these liners are quite excellent which makes these pencils worth trying. I have to admit that I still don’t have time to apply these everyday however I think I can squeeze in a minute or two for these lovelies on days that I have more time to do my makeup.
