Hello everyone! Today I am back with another eye liner review and is Avon Simply Pretty Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner Black Review. This one is my take on Avon Simply Pretty Waterproof Eye Liner. It is a jet black liquid eye liner from Avon. I got this one a few months ago. The eye liner comes in only one shade and that is this black one. Avon is an American international manufacturer & is a well known seller of household, personal care and beauty products. The eye liner that I am going to review today is from Avon’s simply pretty range. This is a budget friendly range. Avon’s ‘Simply Pretty’ range comes with a tagline : ‘Noticeably pretty..Naturally you’, which is quite catchy.
The eye liner that I normally use is semi waterproof. I got this habit of splashing water on my face frequently to freshen up, and even when I am in my office with my make up on, I can’t get rid of this habit of mine. And thanks to my semi waterproof eyeliner, I used to get ‘Black eye’ almost every time I washed my face with water. Hence I was left with no option other than applying and re-applying my eye liner standing in front of the washroom mirror. It felt so weird & at times I used to feel super lazy to do it, so getting me a waterproof eyeliner was on top of my priority list. While browsing the Avon e-brochure a few months ago, I found this eye liner. It said ‘waterproof’ & it was available on a discounted price, so I wasted no time to grab it.
Price of Avon Simply Pretty Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner : Rs.129/- for 7.5 ml (I got it at a discounted price of Rs.89/-)
Ingredients : Not mentioned on the bottle
Direction for use :
Shelf life : 3 years
Color : Black
Smell : It smells like chemical.
What Avon Simply Pretty Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner claims
My experience with Avon Simply Pretty Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner
Avon Simply Pretty Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner comes in a cute glass bottle with a long purple colored screw cap that sits tightly on top, hence making it leakage proof & easy to carry. The cap is actually quite long & so it allows a better grip while applying eye liner. The quantity provided is quite good for the price.
Avon Simply Pretty Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner comes with a brush tip applicator. The brush is really, really thin & very few bristles are there, which makes the application difficult. Also it takes a long time to apply the eye liner evenly and perfectly. A single swipe results in such a thin line that it’s hardly visible. In order to get a good black finish, several strokes of the applicator are needed. Most of the time the wand which is attached to the brush picks up too much liquid, so it’s required to get rid of the excess eye liner before applying or else it might end up coating the lashes. I do not like the applicator at all & always use a different one (a felt – tip one).
The eye liner smells like chemical which is really irritating. Coming to the texture of the Avon Simply Pretty Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner Black, it is quite smooth, neither too thick nor too runny. The color of Avon Simply Pretty Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner is jet black. There is no other shade available for this product. It gives a matte, smooth, black finish and does not irritate the eyes. However the eye liner takes some time to dry out completely, but once it sets, it stays for about 4-5 hours.
Avon Simply Pretty Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner Black claims to be waterproof and smudge proof. It is smudge proof. Once the eye liner dries out completely, it doesn’t wear off unless we rub it hard. But it completely fails to live up to its claim to be waterproof. Just a few splashes of water & the eye liner comes off easily. If you tend to sweat a lot, this eye liner is a big no-no for you. Other product, I like from Avon is Avon Extra Lasting Lipstick.
In a nutshell, Avon Simply Pretty Waterproof Liquid Eye Liner offers a good quantity for the price it comes at. Most of the time you will get it on discounted price. The pigmentation is kind of okay. However its very thin applicator & not being waterproof make it a very average product. I don’t think I’m ever going to repurchase it & I won’t suggest you to give it a try either.
