When you think about advances in the beauty industry, I’d have to count gel eye pencils as one of the most significant contributions. Before gel technology, we eyeliner lovers had to involve the use of lighters and risk possibly burning our lids in order to achieve soft, easy to manipulate liners. It was a rough time, folks.
Gel liners are a must in my makeup life, and I can now count Avon SuperShock Gel Eye Liner Pencil in Plumful as a regular in my rotation.
As I explained in a past Breaking Down Beauty, there are many different options when it comes to using eyeliner, and I have to say gel liners are my favorite. They offer intense color, they are easy to blend, and when they set on your lids they stay on for a long while. So it is with Avon’s SuperShock Gel Liner, which offers all of the above at a very friendly price point.
There are 5 shades in the SuperShock line, and Plumful would have to be my favorite.
Plumful is such a gorgeous purple with just the right amount of sheen and shimmer. The pencil glides on to my lids and although I found you have to be careful in the beginning with smudging, it performs really well after the liner has set.
My Final Thoughts: Avon SuperShock Gel Eye Liner Pencil in Plumful is a beautiful vivid purple that stays on your lids and will wear long into the day. Although you may experience some slight smudging when first applied, I am impressed with the longevity of this liner.
Price: $8, currently priced at $3.99
