Review: Battle of the Avon Liquid Liners

A: Like most beauty bloggers, I am an avid liquid liner wearer – but I am still seeking my perfect product. I liked the They’re Real liner from Benefit, and W7’s liquid liner is one of my faves – but they just aren’t quite right. So when I spotted these in my Avon catalogue, I decided to give them a go because I hadn’t tried a ‘pen’ liner before.

The Super Extend Liquid Eye Liner is currently available on the Avon website for £3.75, and I would highly recommend it. The formula is opaque and super smudge resistant, meaning it easily lasts all day. The flexible but fine nib means you can be really precise and create really smooth wings, and wing tips but it also lends itself to being applied ‘flatly’, creating a thicker and bolder line. In all honesty, it isn’t the easiest thing in the world to remove, it comes off best with a cleansing balm – but this isn’t an issue for me because you can’t have both long lasting and easy to remove. 

The Mega Effects Liquid Eyeliner is priced at £3 online, which is super cheap. This is more like a felt tip, and has a slanted nip allowing you to easily create different looks. The line it creates isn’t as solid as the Super Extend Liner and does need a little more filling in – but the finished look is just as good. This one is also a lot easier to remove, but obviously isn’t as resistant to smudging. It has also not taken many uses to start drying out, I’m talking less than 10.

Comparing the two liners next to one another, you can easily see the difference between the pigmentation and the quality of the Super Extend. Although the formulas are similar, the Super Extend is a lot heavier – which is a plus for me but maybe not for others. I do like the shape of the Mega Effects nib – and how easy it is to create different looks, but the point could be a lot finer for precision, it’s a little clumsy. If were to recommend one, it’s would obviously be the Super Extend, I think I may have found my HG liquid liner, and it’s super cheap!!

Have any of you tried these and had a different experience? #twolittleowlsblog

    I haven’t really tried too much from Avon but I do have a few of their products with one being a retractable eyeliner. The Super Extend looks very nicely pigmented!! Great review!! 🙂 xo

        Yeah I have to agree with that!! I actually do have a quite a few of their products seeing as I did win a giveaway a while ago from a good blogger friend of mine that sells Avon too. So naturally she is going to include a lot of Avon products. I just am not the biggest fan of Mary Kay lol. Xx
