Extremely creamy eyeliner in a gorgeous navy-ish blue with a metallic sheen. Unfortunately it is too creamy and smears and transfers to my eyelids right away. It would probably work great for someone who eyelids are not as greasy as mine seem to be. Not going to repurchase.

Even though I suffer from oily lids and without a really good primer these pencils tend to transfer slightly, I absolutely love these pencils, especially the Cobalt. It's creamy, dramatic and a gorgeous shade of blue. I think it would make any shade of eye 'pop'! Much better than other more expensive eye pencils but not so good on the waterline.

Avon's Mega Impact Eyeliners will "up the wow factor!". These eyeliners are actually gel based. Avon released their Mega Impact eyeliners last summer and discontinued them shortly after. I was so disappointed because I had bought it when it was first released and fell in love! When I saw them re-released a few weeks ago with an expanded color range of eight shades, I couldn't have been happier! I purchased two in Black Flash and Extreme Cobalt. Each Mega Impact pencil sells for $6, but I scored both of mine for $2.99 each. This eyeliner contains 1.2g (.042 oz). Avon products can be bought through the brand's website, or your local Avon rep. Avon does not test on animals, but they recently began selling in China, where their products may be subject to government controlled animal testing. This eyeliner was made in Germany.
Avon's Mega Impact Eyeliners come in traditional wooden pencils, which do need to be sharpened. These pencils have a black coating, the base of the pencil is color matched to the internal product. The product name, shade name, and Avon logo are printed on the pencil in silver lettering. The Mega Impact Eyeliners are topped off by plastic caps that manage to stay on. Unlike the Ultra Luxury Eyeliners, the wood casing for the Mega Impact pencils never splinter and always sharpen easily and evenly.
The smooth, easy to use gel texture of Avon's Mega Impact eyeliners is second only to NYX's Slide On Pencils. The Mega Impact pencils are incredibly easy to use, they glide on effortlessly no matter where you decide to apply them. Because the Mega Impact liners have a gel base, they're not only easy to work with, they're very pigmented and go on opaque in one pass. This liner formula is very smudgable at first, but after 45-60 seconds it stays put no matter what! Even on the waterline this eyeliner lasts at least six hours. Avon doesn't advertise their Mega Impact liners as being waterproof, but I believe they are because they're very difficult to remover even with the best makeup removers.
Extreme Cobalt is such a great color! Avon shows it as a dull blue on their website and that is such a lie! This shade is so rich and deep, yet kinda bright. Extreme Cobalt is darker than what I'd call a "cobalt blue", but its not a navy either, its somewhere between the two. This shade contains a few flecks of dark blue shimmer that aren't too noticeable except when you smudge it out. These little flecks of glitter give Extreme Cobalt some subtle dimension.
Avon's Mega Impact pencils are excellent! I hope they never discontinue them again. The idea of a gel eyeliner in a pencil form is genius because it gives you the best of both worlds. The Mega Impact pencils are pigmented, creamy, long lasting, and very affordable. I highly recommend these eyeliners in any shade. This is a product I've repurchased, and plan to repurchase in the future.
