After my old eye liner was discontinued I started using this one and its X10 better than my last product. It gives me complete control over the thickness of the line and nice when I need to do any kind of wing at the corners of my eyes. Now, as a liquid eye liner it DOES NOT work on your water line. Me, being an idiot, decided to try it and it burned. A lot. The only other draw back is, contradictory to the size of the pen, the eye liner does tend to run out pretty quickly. After about two weeks it''s pretty much useless. As for the ''perfect wear'' claim I''d say its pretty close. I''m always on the go, always running around trying to get stuff done and this liner goes on quick and lasts all day so I don''t have to worry about re-applying all the time. The coloring is really nice in that it is what it SAYS IT IS. There are a lot of different liquid eye liners that SAY that they''re black but are really light gray or charcoal. If I needed light gray/ charcoal eye liner I would buy light gray/ charcoal eye liner. Not black. So it''s refreshing that the black Avon Perfect Wear Liquid Eye Liner Pen is indeed Black. I would totally suggest this to anyone who needs a new brand of eye liner because this one is good. Quick. Easy. Clean (very important to have clean lines). Cheap. Great product all around.
If you are wanting a long lasting line that is smudge proof with a deep strong colour this is an excellent choice of eyeliner, especially for the price.
Furthermore the felt tip pen type nib makes it extremely quick and easy to apply and the line you get with this is extremely well defined and it is very easy to apply in a single swipe. You can get the 60's flick top eye line very easily and effectively.
The only problem I found with this product was that you have to replace it quite frequently. This is because as with a felt tip pen the nib tends to fray and once this happens you cannot get the clean defined line anymore and it becomes very difficult to apply.
For the price though you can get a good look cheaply, easily and effectively and I would recommend the product and if you can get it as part of other avon offers it can be a good deal.
I got this eyeliner as part of one the magazines little makeup bag giftsets they often feature and it came with an eye shadow, eyeliner and a small mirror. I already owned a different eyeliner of Avons in a brown colour and was impressed with it as it stayed on well and was quite subtle so was looking forward to trying this new updated eyeliner.
The tube is black with silver writing on which wears off after a few uses so I sometimes mix up with other Avon products that have done this, which is really annoying. The brush is like a soft felt tip and is very easy to use, after a while the brush can lose its shape and go too soft to create a strong line. Since using this I much prefer inky eyeliners with small precise brushes as you can get much stronger colours and more defined lines.
I was very disappointed with the application of this brush as it seemed quite harsh on my eyelid and gave a very subtle coloured line that looked more purpley-blue than black. I drew across my hand a few times to see if the colour just hadn't reached the nib yet but the eyeliner seemed quite consistent, just not black! I also found that is was easily smudged and seemed to move so that it looked like I had applied the eyeliner leaving a gap between the line and lashes.
I wouldn't recommend this at all as the colour was useless and the application a bit hard as the colour would not come out properly. I am only glad I didn't have to pay for it.
Precision liner that lasts all day based on a Consumer wera evaluation, of 35 women.
Was £6.50 - usually found in an offer at £5 or in a mix and match offer.
Available in Black and Brown.
The size of a felt tip pen and just as thick. Its a black tube with a pull off lid to reveal the felt tip pen style brush.
I find that lots of eyeliners that are cheaper usually end up crumbling or flaking away throughout the day, not only producing black dots under your eyes because of it falling away but also gaps on the line you'd created earlier that morning. I found that this option from avon erased all that. The product is very easy to use, easier than most as a pen feels more natural to hold so is instantly easier to apply. Avon recommends the best way to apply is by starting from the middle of the upper lid and drawing the line outwards. Then, start in the corner of your eye (the one nearest your nose) and draw the line to meet the other line.
However, this makes it sound like 2 lines per eye and your away! Ohhhh how they lie! For make up experts maybe, for normal people like me - no! I find that although this is definitely easier than any other I have used, because you can't "dip" in the liner yourself the brush isn't coated very thickly so sometimes the line isn't black enough or strong enough. If you keep on brushing it kind of wipes off what you have done too. So its best to wait for it to dry and then reapply another line. This is usually enough.
Pain in the bum yes but less pain than most others.
One bad thing - when you start to regularly use this the ink dries out quickly and because you don't "dip" it yourself its hard to get the consistency back. Still, this does last a good month or two depending on usage.
I would rate this item as follows:
Value for money - ****
Ease of use - ****
Length of use - ****
Style and appearance - *****
After having varied results with pencil liners, and really wanting to achieve the "Amy Winehouse" look......well the eye's, not the rest of the look, I decided the only line of defence was to try a felt tip type of applicator, with the first one being the subject of this review.
The product I will now review is - "Avon liquid pen liner".
This product, once having the plastic wrap removed, looks just like a smaller squat version of a black felt tip pen.
To use you simply unscrew the lid. Once removed, you are faced with a elongated fibre tip, being fatter at the base end to allow the black liner liquid through, and dramatically slimming down at the point, perfect to create thin lines and flicks at the eye corners.
The pen is easy enough to hold, with the liquid never ever running from the fibre end, though between eye's I do find I have to shake a little more liquid into the tip, if I don't it comes out a slightly thinner version of black, more grey in fact!
This does help to create the look I was after, but doesn't automatically mean I could achieve it, having to practise a good amount to get used to using it.
Longevity of the liner is not bad, though if rubbed or if you have a cry (yes, this has happened to me!), the results are immediately washed away, though I have never been left looking like Alice Cooper, so that is a bonus!
This product has never irritated my eye's, or the surrounding skin, although Avon does mostly state hypo allergenic products, I have on occasion reacted to some of there products, so with this being an eye item I was glad there was reaction!
This has so far lasted me a good 6 months, that is with three - four days use, and for the price I paid (on offer £1.00!), this is exceptional value!

This is a nice enough liner, easy to use and with some practise could produce the results require, though don't expect indefinite results!
Thanks for reading x
I'm not a particularly girlie girl, but the products that I do own are of good quality and tend to be of the higher end price range, particularly eye products due to me having *VERY* sensitive eyes. In June this year myself and husband decided to go to Glastonbury for the first time so I wanted to take some products that didn't break the bank but would stop me scaring my fellow-campers! Eyeliner and mascara are something I use on a regular basis otherwise I look ill, and a friend recommended Perfectwear eyeliner and mascara as she has found that they don't cause her eyes to stream, so for £6 I figured it was worth a shot.
The eyeliner is of the liquid variety and I chose the brown shade but it also comes in black, and it is incredibly easy to apply but unlike most liquid eyeliners, it is very easy to smudge if you want to achieve that 'smokey' look. It dries quickly and it lasted extremely well until it was time to remove my make-up. I have read several reviews on the Avon website which claims that the tube of eyeliner dried out after a couple of uses, but a month on, and mine is still moist without any clumps developing on the 'pen' - possibly because I shake the tube really well before use
Best of all - its kind on my eye area - all too often I have ended an evening with panda eyes as they have become so sensitive that I have been unable to resist rubbing at them! I would recommend this product to my friends and will certainly buy it again if I need a cheaper alternative to my regular products
Before I tried this product, I wasn't keen on liquid eyeliner: I found it messy to apply, slow to dry, and either smudgy or flaky. I am delighted to say that this one is different!
I have this eyeliner in black and purple, although I think the purple one is now discontinued. Unlike many other liquid eyeliners, this one comes in a felt-tip style tube, which means that it is easy to get it exactly where you want it. You can also vary the thickness of the line by angling the tip.
The colour goes on quite smoothly, although the tip seems to be very quick to dry out, which makes it drag a bit. However, another reviewer recommends shaking the tube before application, and this greatly improves the situation. Once the liner is applied, it doesn't smudge or budge - I've worn this well into the next day with it still looking good! This said, it is fairly easy to remove when you want to. Disappointingly, the black isn't all that black, and the purple doesn't look much different from the black. The colours could be more vivid, and I would very much like other shades to be available, as only brown and black are currently available.
This eyeliner usually costs £6.50, which seems to be fairly good value, as I've used both of them quite a lot and they still work. It's a shame that you can't see how much is left in the tube - how will I know when to order another one?!
I have used a variety of eyeliners from the pencils to the difficult to use striper pens but have to say these felt tip versions are much easier and quicker to use.
Eyeliner is very THIS season so if you are looking to try a reasonably priced eyeliner pen then I do recommend this.
I bought this from a friend who has recently become an avon representative and it was on offer at £4 (usually £8). It comes in black and brown and I have the black one.
On first use I was very impressed with the precision and ease at which it applied a perfect black line to my upper eye lashes. It stayed on really well for around about 8-10 hours before even showing the slightest sign of fading or smudging.
I used it every day for a couple of weeks to the same effect. Then, however the black line became more of a grey one and the very tip of the pen looked like a used felt pen.
At this point I was a little disappointed. I had hoped my new eyeliner was going to last me around 2-3 months. I would have been even more disappointed if I had paid the proper price of £8.
So I put the lid back on and gave it a vigirous shake.... This seemed to work wonders the ink in the barrel had blackened the tip again brilliantly. I therefore applied my perfect black line :0).
Since doing this vigirous shaking for 3-5 seconds before I use it - it continues to work perfectly every time and has lasted me 4 months so far and continues to work really well!
If you would like to try an eyeliner then I really do recommend this one.

I have this in the shade black. The reasons I wanted to get this is because I had never used a liquid eye liner before, only the eye liners that come in the form of a pencil. This is from Avon, and the model wearing it in the Avon brochure looked great with it on. I decided to try this for myself, as I think at the time there was also an offer on that may have influenced my decision to buy this.
As well as the black shade, there is also another shade you can order this in, which is brown. There are only two shades for some reason but I think black and brown are quite popular colours for eyeliner so this might not be something I need to complain about.
In the brochure it claims that this eyeliner will last all day long. I take this to mean that it will be waterproof as well and probably wouldn't rub off easily, for example if I was rubbing my eyes or something it would stay in place. And also if I drew lines on, say if I was going for the Amy Winehouse look, then I would expect this to stay exactly the same all day as it looked in the morning.
I am right to think this because this does last a long time. This doesn't come off easily and when you want to remove this you have to use eye make up remover, I find that you can't just use face wash or it won't come off well enough.
The only thing about this that doesn't last is the eye liner pen itself. When you put it on it is a bit like a felt tip pen, and I find it really easy to draw it on exactly how I want it to look, because of the nice pointy end.
But like some felt tip pens this does run out and then you need to press a bit harder as time goes on to get it to show up more clearly on your eyelids. Overall this is recommended. Normal price is £6.50 :)
I love eyeliner especially when I am going out I like to use a nice white shade half way up my lid and finish off with a sweep of jet black eye shadow and lots of eyeliner. I find that some eye liners look lovely when they are first applied yet some of them seem to slide and end up looking rather like you have already had a rough night.
I first noticed the eye liner pen in Avon because of its felt tip like end in the picture. I knew my aunty had used pen liners before and she said that they were a lot harder to apply than the pencils but the design hooked me and I had to give it a go.
I chose the black colour however this pen is also available in brown. When the pen arrived the end actually did look like a soft nibbed felt tip and by looking at it I thought it was going to be incredibly hard to apply however the nib actually made the eye liner a lot easier to use. The liquid wasn't as jet black as I would have liked but it was still black.
The liquid eye liner is extremely easy to apply on the upper lids however you do have to look stupid for a while and try not to blink your eyes as you can end up with lines above where you intended. The liner does dry pretty fast though and once dried it won't budge, smudge, crease or leave nasty residue under the eyes, it is there for the night.
I think the felt tip end is a great idea and I couldn't believe how easy it was to create a nice straight line around the eye area. The pen slides along the skin easily so there isn't any dragging just even colour all the way along the eye line.
This pen is £6.50 to buy but I would recommend looking for deals as you can often pick them up on offer for 2 for £10.00.
I don't particuarly buy Avon products as I am not always impressed with them, however now and again I will go through a catalogue and just pick out a few of the offers that take my fancy, as I very rarely pay full price for an Avon product, as personally I don't think that the quality of the product is worth the price charged.
I use liquid eyeliner on a daily basis and have therefore tried many different brands and styles.
It was on special offer at £2.50 from the normal price (last year) of £5, this seemed a very reasonable price for this style (or any) eyeliner as they normally cost around £6-£10 in other makes.
To apply you simply unscrew the black tap and run it along your eyelid (or where ever you wish to apply it!), when I say run, however, I do mean rub as hard as you can until your eyes look pink and then....
it still won't have covered your eye!
It seems very cool when you apply, I think this is to do with the fact that it is mainly water! It seems very diluted and the 'black' shade came out a VERY pale grey colour - which looked a bit like dirty water on my eye!
Despite the fact I layered it on, it still did not come out black and just looked a slightly darker grey!
Due to it being watery it also took AGESSSS to dry, so I just ended up opening my eyes, only to have it smudged everywhere!
Overall I think this is a completley useless product and is bin worthy - something I won't be buying any time soon! (or just ever.)
I don't normally buy Avon products. I certainly wouldn't buy them off my own back as the advertising and image doesn't appeal to me. That's not me being snobby and above my station, it's more of a subconcious thing when there are so many other brands out there to chose from.
My Mum bought me an Avon eyeliner and some bronzing pearls for my birthday one year off a friend from her work who does the Avon catalogue. The eyliner was a liquid pen and the type I use to line my upper lids. I find pen/liquid much easier to use than pencil.
The eyeliner comes in black packaging with a pull off black lid. Underneath the lid is a fiber tipped style pen that peaks into a nice thin point so that you can get the detail perfect.
The eyliner itself is black and thick. I have tried some other brands which go on and do not give a thick layer, which looks awful. The liner stays on for a good couple of hours, depends how thick you have it on. It is easy to remove with normal eye make up remover, and only smudges when you rub your eyes.
The brush makes it very easy to apply and get the perfect detail. If I do make any mistakes it is easy to correct the eyeliner with a water damp cotton bud.
This is the best eyeliner I have tried and have not yet come close to finding a similar one!
About Avon: Avon first came to the fore when Avon Ladies dropped catalogues door to door and delivered products to your door. This is still common practice, and you can order from your local Avon representative, but fortunately Avon's products are now available online too at www.avonshop.co.uk
Avon Make Up: Having tried several Avon make up products over the years, I would normally recommend trying their eye make up but do not find their foundations to be particularly good. Avon bring out a new brochure monthly with different offers, so you will often get free gifts or reductions on make up.
Packaging: the eyeliner comes in a standard black packaging with silver writing on. The lid is screw top which is good, preventing any accidents in you make up bag. The tip is just like a felt tip pen, can feel a bit weird, like you are drawing on your eyes with a marker.
Shade: The shade I have is 'black' which is a really great jet black, exactly what I wanted for nights out
Result: I was so delighted with this at first, unfortunately having only used this a few times it then completely dried out
Would I recommend: No. Maybelline do a similar product in pink packaging which is around the same price, or cheaper, and is so much better.
Where to buy and price: As mentioned above, this product is available from an Avon Representative or online. The perfect wear eyeliner costs around £7, but will often be on offer.
I have used AVON for years and really rate it as a company on the whole.
This eyeliner is in the perfect wear range which is kind of "the premium" range for AVON that promises long lasting results. The eyeliner comes in black, blue/black or brown and costs around £5 which is reasonable but is often on 2 for £8 or 2 for £7 so really quite good.
A lot of people find liquid eyeliner hard to handle, but this is in a pen format so feels natural to hold like you are holding a pen or a pencil. The colour is good and if you don't drag it over your lid it covers really well. You need to wait a couple of seconds to let the eyeliner dry before you open your eyelids properly as often the liquid ends up on the top of your eye which is not very attractive.
I wouldn't use this on the bottom lid either, I reckon it could sting quite a lot!
It is really easy to apply, but does it last? Well in my opinion "no" is the answer, I frequently arrive home from work to find a patchy line on my eye where some has come off (not through rubbing ) through the day, which is a real shame as I like the rest of this eyeliner.
I would say it is the best eyeliner (liquid) that I have used but doesn't stay on that well, but I'v yet to find a better alternative for the money.
The humble eyeliner. Around for generations. Standing there in a bid to be used by all women. In the hopes of wooing all men. And sometimes that crosses.
How I love my liquid eyeliners.
There are five things in this world that must always be upon my person at ALL times.
1. Clean underwear. You never know!
4. My imagination (I get bored really easily).
5. The humble liquid eyeliner.
I have tried dozens, I only buy a handful. This strangely is one of them. The reason being, it does not really match what I would normally classify as fantastic, but with the bad comes the good.
Allow me to be negative first. It is not the most vibrant of colours. Black tends towards a more very dark grey. When you apply your eye shadow (and being 100% goth, that's a lot for me) it just blends in. It does tend to stain you upper lid in very hot weather no matter how much you try to pretend sweat doesn't happen. Not the kind of impression I want to make on a night out.
But I can forgive all of this for the following reasons...
It has a perfect applicator. It doesn't go anywhere you don't want it to go. You are the artist, and you are drawing the line. If you want to make a thick line, you can. You wanna go soft and sexy, you can. It doesn't require that constant dipping into the pot, wiping the excess on the bottle top, reapply, try again, erase the smudge, go over once more performance. It's quick, easy, simple and perfect for everyday wear. Not only that...it's cost effective. I have currently have two liners in my makeup bag. This for work, the other for nights out.
And does it last for more than 12 hours? Well honestly I have not had any problems with it. Again, lack of colour umph but keep fingers away from tired eyes and it might just make it through. Really, no eye rubbing!
I would recommend this to anyone who wants to get their look in under 5 minutes and still have time for coffee before they leave the house at 6:30am.
