This Ultra Glimmerstick is part of the new and improved Glimmerstick range because the previous Glimmerstick lipliner range has been discontinued in Brochure 10. The lipliner comes in a sleek, strong black casing (resembles a pencil) with shimmering silver writing and a wrap-around colour code around the end of the casing. Inside the casing is a retractable lipliner. As you all know I’m crazy about the colour purple, so I was really excited when I got this lipliner. The shade is exactly the same shade as the colour code. When applying the lipliner, the texture is soft, smooth and softens against lips giving you a perfect application with no streaks or smudges. I was quite impressed with the rich colour pay off. The lipliner lasted around four to five hours and stuck around through lunch and frequent drinks of water. I was quite impressed, I also like the fact that this lipliner doesn’t bleed into lip lines. Plus you can use your lipliner as a lipstick, simply apply it to lips and add lip balm or lipgloss over!

The price, the Glimmerstick lipliners retail at around R90 per Glimmerstick unless they on offer, so it’s quite expensive unless its on offer.

I would recommend you give the Avon Ultra Glimmerstick a try, mainly because it gives an absolutely rich colour pay off, I would wait for it to be on offer though, but if rich, creamy colour is what you’re looking for, then this lipliner is definitely for you.
