Avon Glimmerstick Lip Liner in Deep Plum Review and Swatches

Avon Glimmerstick Lip Liner in Deep Plum

Hi Everyone!!
I will review a Avon Glimmerstick lip liner today. I guess, I am reviewing a lip liner after ages as I am more of a stained look kind of a person but I have starting loving the perfectly lined lips a lot lately. The product in concern is from the recent launch available from this April, I have already reviewed the eyeliner so, now, my focus will be on this lip liner.
Price: Avon Glimmerstick lip liners are priced at  349 rupees for 0.25 g though in the April catalogue their price was 229 INR. Apart from Deep Plum, these are available in 4 other shades like Nud* Red Brick, True Red and Chocolate.

Avon Glimmerstick lip liner comes in a retractable tube which is good. It can spare me from sharpening and the irritation that is being faced when the lid breaks especially while you’re in hurry. Let’s not go there, I find that very annoying. So, thumbs up that it has a retractable mechanism.  


Deep Plum is a plummy red or you can say reddish purple since both the hues in this color co-dominates. It’s like you mix a purple with equal quanity of red, you get this color though it isn’t as red as oxblood shade. It’s a color that will go with your plumy, maroon lipsticks. Lip liner are not just to shape and line your lips but they also keep the lipstick bleeding in check.
The color that will show up finally also depends on the actual lip color as I always say. For eg: if your lips are pinky red then this true color will show up eventually altering the final color. The sheerer the lip product the more your actual color will interfere.

This lip liner’s texture is smooth if the lips are already moisturized then it will glide much better. It’s finish is matte and with no shimmers at all on the contrary to its name “glimmerstick”. There is no glimmer or shimmer in this stick!!
It’s a true matte color. I am quite happy with its staying span as it acts like an eyeliner, which means it will not get rubbed off easily. That is good as when the lipstick erodes off, your lipliner is still there. But make sure that you also fill in the lips, not just outline them as once your lipstick fades off then the pout with outlining may not look flattering.

Coming back, If you will see the last swatch picture where, I rubbed it vigorously but the swatches were still there though not in their full glory but this is quite commendable for a lip liner. 
As I said it has a matte texture so, lips can get flaky, make sure to moisturize them beforehand if you choose a matte lipstick with this.

Rating: 4.75 out of 5

Take: Avon Glimmerstick Lip liners have matte finish with smooth texture. They are affordable and the five shades that they come in will go with most of the lipcolors though I wish they include shades like pink and orange as well considering they are the hottest colors of the season to flaunt! Apart from that they have really impressed me. I will recommend them. I am looking forward to try their true red soon!

PR sample though the review is hones as always!
