AVON SIMPLY PRETTY EYE DEFINING PENCIL- SWATCHES & REVIEW

AVON SIMPLY PRETTY EYE DEFINING PENCIL IN GREEN- SWATCHES & REVIEW

1.3 gms for INR 119

Company Says:- Provides rich color and is smudge-proof

Key Ingredients:- Camphor n Castor oil for a cooling n soothing effect.

Available in 4 shades:-
Black
Green
Brown
Metallic Blue
Eye Defining Pencil (Green)

My Opinion:- Eye pencils gives a pop to the eyes and enhance them dramatically. Eye pencils can pull up a look in no time. I love these colorful pencils and keep on trying out different brands all the time. This time I laid my hand on this Avon Simply Pretty Eye Defining Pencil. I chose the shade green, am in love with greens :D It is an intense green shade and I think it would look great on most Indian skin tone. 

                 This pencil is not creamy but I don't need to tug and pull my eyelids to line them. I use it to line my eyes and also my waterline. Sometimes I use it on my entire lid as eyeshadow. I haven't experienced any irritation (I have sensitive eyes) so I would say its a good quality pencil, safe as well. Though nowhere it is mentioned that its ophthalmologist test but still I never had any problem when using this pencil on my waterline.

                 The staying power is not good enough, it stayed on my waterline for less than an hour and on my lids for about 2 hours without primer. But with primer it stays on for longer, about 3.5-4 hrs which is pretty good considering the small price it comes in. But then this pencil is not smudge-proof as the company claims. It smudges to an extent but not too much. This pencil makes no claims to be waterproof but it doesn't go off with water alone. I need a face wash or cleanser to take it off completely.

Pros:- Contains camphor and castor oil, intense color, cheap

Cons:- Smudges and needs a primer to last long.

                   I rate this product 3.75 out of 5. I don't think I will get another pencil from this range.
