“ Brand: Avon / Type: Eyeliners / Subcategory: Colour „
I bought this eyeliner a few years back on the recommendation of a friend (whom I should know better to listen to as she thinks its a good idea to wear a foundation a million times darker than need be and leave a nice orange tide line mark around her face!) Doh!
I think I paid around £1.50 for this and I bought it in the Limeade shade which is a lime green sort of colour.
The ColorTrend range I think is aimed towards teenage girls and I suppose this would be a good eyeliner for a youngster but it lacked any oomph!
It came packaged in a little cardboard box and this eyeliner is packaged in a plastic cone shaped bottle, the part holding the eyeliner is very small and the top has a light blue tapered shaped lid which also holds the applicator brush.
Opening the lid I noticed the eyeliner actually looked quite bright if a little watery and when I applied it along my top lash line I didn't really notice anything much in the way of colour. I suppose for £1 odd I can't really complain but it was a quid wasted as it has since been relegated to my vanity case which pretty much holds all the bits of make-up I very rarely use.
My friend bought this in the purple shade and I don't actually think that was much better.
It's not a product I would buy again, infact I don't actually know why I kept it.
If I could give it no stars I would but I have to give it one.
This is essentially a cheapo version of Avon's Precision Glimmer Eyeliner, in funky shades, and, sadly, of a lower quality. Nevertheless, you get what you pay for, and at around £1.50, these eyeliners are a fraction of the price of their better-quality sisters.
This product comes in three fruity shades: Berry Nice (pinky purple), Limeade (lime green), and Coco Crush (a slightly odd shade of what I can only describe as bright brown). The weird brown one didn't appeal to me, so I have the purple one and the green one. This range is very similar to a previous color trend range: eyeliner brights, which was the same sort of eyeliner in different shades.
The eyeliner is applied with a sort of felt-tip that is dipped into the pot of liquid. It is, however, stiffer than the felt-tip applicators on Avon's Perfect Wear Liquid Eyeliner, Precision Glimmer Eyeliner, and the previous color trend range of liquid eyeliner. This means that it is a little more difficult to apply: the tip sometimes feels scratchy and the line drawn is patchy. As a result of this, and of the colours being a little wishy-washy, two or three coats are often needed for an even result.
Once enough of the product is applied, the effect is quite vibrant and striking, but the extra coats can cause problems... The thickness of all the coats mean that the eyeliner flakes off quite quickly, so it doesn't last all day. The sheer volume of product needed can irritate sensitive eyes, as the formula is quite chemically. In fact, if my eyes are in the wrong sort of mood, they say no to this liner by stinging and watering copiously!
Although this eyeliner is not very good quality, the unusual colours and the low price make it worth trying if you're on a budget, or are looking for funky colours.
I bought 2 of the 3 available eyeliners as they were only 1.50 each, in the Avon catalog about 4 months ago!! I wasn't expecting anything great as by the shade of the coulor, i kinda already knew they would bat my usual 10 pounds stuff. They looked watery the first day i got them, and as i suspected i was right. They was a load of rubbish for me. As so as you put on the eyeliner it looked look some 2 year old kid had mixed some watery paint and sold it off as eyeliner.
I looked dreadful, it was asif someone had punched me int he eye, and may i just say- no wonder it was on sale, i dont know many peaple who ware purple and green eyeliner. the brush was to hard and bendy, it couldn't hold enough liquid to do one eye.
The bottle didn't stand up very well, and kept falling over when i put the lid in. The lid was made of plastic, and when i dropped it it shattered into about 30 sharp pieces. It was no good to me.
I only ever used it again once, and that was a Halloween, and even then people couldn't tell who i was meant to bee as fine deatail was hard to prefect with a shattered brush!!
I brought 2 of these Color Trend Fruity Liquid Eyeliners after my mate said how good they were, luckily they were on special offer at the time and only £2.00 instead of the usual £3.25 because they are rubbish eyeliners I reckon and I've got better for a quid in the chemist down the road!
It's a liquid eyeliner and there are 3 shades available, I've got the Cocoa Crush and Berry Nice ones and neither of them are that good. I'm quite disappointed because I get on with a lot of Avon's eyeliners but these are proper bad quality and neither of the colours I've got are particularly nice either.
The small thin brush is easy to use at first and just enough eyeliner goes on with each dip into the bottle. The problem is that the bristles in the brush start seperating quite soon after you first start using it and now it's impossible to get a neat line without spending too long on my eye make up.
The colours are a bit washed out too and especially with the Cocoa one I have to put on 2 or 3 coats before I'm happy with the shade, that can make my eyeliner look overdone and messy though and I prefer liners where I can get my sweep done just once for a nice colour. The Berry one is also quite sheer and it's a nice colour but wrong for me because the shade has a bit too much pink in it.
The colour fades quicker than I expected it to as well. The first nice I wore this eyeliner I went out and when I went into the loo a couple of hours later to check my make up it had nearly all gone. This wasn't a mad sweaty club either, just a normal pub so I don't think this eyeliner is long enough lasting at all.
I won't bother with it again, I've given my 2 to my mate who first recommended them. She loves them and doesn't have a problem with the colours fading so they obviously suit some skin types better than others.
I recently brought these fruity liquid eyeliners from avon. They are priced at £3.25 each, or you can mix and match the colour trend make up and get 3 for £5.00. Which I done so I managed to get all 3 colours for a fiver.
The 3 shades that the eyeliner comes in are: "berry nice" which is a nice purple colour, "coco crush" which is a goldy/brown colour and lastly "limeade" which is a greeny/yellow colour.
The bottle comes in a little cardboard box which says colour trend on and at the end of it it says which colour it is. The actual bottole is similar looking to a nail varnish bottle and is 12ml. The bottom part of the bottom is see through so you can see staight away what colour eye liner you have out it also says at the bottom the shade. The top part of the bottle which is the lid is blue and is quite long and thin. So when you apply the eyeliner it is fairly easy to do as it is similar to a pen and is easy to hold and use.
The eyeliner itself comes out perfect i would say the nib isnt to thick of thin just right. The only problem i find is the colour doesnt stay on to long it wears of which is a shame and is slightly watery.
As soon as I seen these eyeliners advertised I wanted them as I quite like different colours and thought it would make my eyes stand out. Also I thought the colours were very summery and fresh. When applied the colours shine, I find the darkest colour is the coco crush the other two are quite alot lighter. The thickness you want the eyeliner all depends on how hard you press down when you are applying it.
If you like these eyeliners you can also buy the three colour trend eye shadows that match up with them so you can do your eyes with the eyeliner and the similar coloured eye shadow. The colours are : Coconut Crush, Crushed Berries and Lemon Ice.
Overall I would say the colours are great it's just a shame they don't stay on for long.

I have recently bought the glide and define liquid eyeliner by max factor, which is amazing! and in the competition to win it is first, But i thought that the colour trend eyeliner from avon was really good as well. At first it is a bit difficult to master the art of a liquid eyeliner, but i eventually got there - with a few liquid eyeliners and tears later!
I think that the avon eyeliner is quite easy to use, if you have a steady hand, patience and a lot of cotton buds for mistakes! The colour is really pigmented, rich and sparkly!
To use, cleanse face and then make sure that your face and especially your eyes are well moisturized. Then if available apply an eyeshadow primer, i have found that this makes the liner stay put for longer. I find it best to start at the inner corner of your eye and then steadily sweep the pen like tip of the liner along your eyelid - try to get it as close to your lash line as possible as it makes the lines look cleaner and less drawn on. You can then take a cotton bud and wet it either with water or eye make up remover and get rid of any mistakes. It was also suitable for my sensitive! It comes various colours including, coco crush, limeade and my favorite berry nice! And what's even nicer is the price, currently on the avon website they are on sale for £1.50, but will normally be £3.25, so you can buy all 3! Overall a good liner, quite easy to use, enchanting colour and a fantastic price!
Thank you for reading my review, i hope it was helpful! :D
