Transfer-resistant. Waterproof. Rub- and fade-proof.
Avon’s Extra Lasting Eyeshadow Pencils are said to be transfer-resistant, waterproof, and fade-proof. It comes in 10 different shades and is currently on sale for $4.99 each. This review is for the shade Shimmering Sand.
This eye shadow comes in pencil form with lightweight packaging made of red plastic. The ends twist so that you do not need to sharpen the product.
Shimmering Sand is a gorgeous shade. It’s a shimmering taupe that has both a light and smoky quality about it. The underlying color is sultry, but it’s equally light because of the reflective surface it has. Shimmering Sand can be worn day or night and makes brown, green, and hazel eyes really stand out.
The formula for these eye shadows is creamy and smooth. They are easy to blend (before they set), are absolutely smudge-resistant, fade-resistant, and waterproof. Even without primer underneath, I saw almost no creasing or fading after 8 hours of wear.
Ease of Use: 10/10
These are the easiest-to-use shadows you’ll find. The pencil form means you simply drag it across the lid until you get the desired level of color you want. If you’re blending it into the crease, make sure to do one eye at a time because after these set, they won’t budge.
For $8.50 you get 0.58 ounces of product. This is a little more than you get with most pencil-form shadow sticks, and costs the fraction of the price of counterparts without compromising quality.
