Avon Supershock Gel Eye Liners: Review and Photos

If you thought Avon’s Supershock Gel Liners couldn’t be beaten, well, I’m sorry, but you’d have been wrong. Sure, they’re soft and creamy and they glide smoother than Torvill or Dean. Yes, the colour intensity is probably among the very best I’ve seen. And uh-huh, yep, they’re amazingly priced at just €8 and outperform products at more than double that price. All that might be true, but they were missing one thing. MORE COLOURS.

Avon Supershock Gel Eyeliners in Flash, Steel, Aqua Pop, Khaki Shimmer

So far I’ve owned and loved the black version and more recently, the gorgeous Golden Fawn (which you can see in action here). But recently, four more shades have fallen through my letterbox and I am crushing all over them, hard. God, they’re gorgeous. They really are. Just look at ‘em.

These four stunners are, from left to right above: Khaki Shimmer, a golden green, Flash, a pink champagne, Aqua Pop, that gorgeous teal and Steel, the shimmery gunmetal grey. I’d use Flash under my eye or in the inner corner, while the other three are gorgeous on the top or bottom lashline, or on both.

The Supershocks are similar to the fabulous Urban Decay 24/7 pencil liners or Lancome’s lovely Le Crayon Kohl but, and I don’t say this lightly, are arguably even better. If you keep them sharp and work quickly you can get quite a precise, winged out line, but they work even better for a lovely smudge of colour round the eyes. You have a little bit of wiggle room but once they set, these babies ain't for budging.

Do they have a downside? Well, doesn’t everything? In this case it’s the very softness that makes them such a joy to use – it also means they need a lot of sharpening, and you’ll go through ‘em fast.

But without going all Tina Turner on you, I’ve tried hundreds of eye pencils and these ones are simply the best. Snap ‘em up folks – you won’t regret it. Find your local Avon representative here.

These look gorgeous, I have an obsession with pencil liners. They are fab. The green and teal liners in particular are so pretty.

These are now on my wishlist!

Thanks for the post

I'll take that little downside, the pros outweigh that one little con :-D

I have the flesh coloured one (flash?) and I've just ordered another one as they were only €3,75 in the latest Avon catalogue!

Before, I thought Avon was a brand more famous in Brazil, I just discovered it is famous in the world after a while. =D
I really liked, the colors are beautifull.
Do you think with this pencil is easier to learn to make delineated in the eyes?

Ooh that green is just stunning! I'm always thinking about signing up with Avon but I know it'd be too dangerous- I'd end up spending a small fortune! :) x
