This time it was the Annabelle Cosmetics Smudge Eyeliners & Marcelle High Definition Volume Mascara. I was so happy when I saw the smudge liners were included because the one I had been using (also Annabelle one of my favs) was about the size of my pinky finger and becoming very hard to sharpen!
I have been wearing the Rich Chocolate color everyday for the past week and love it. The color isn't as harsh as black so its perfect for daytime. The smudger tool attached to one end of the liner makes creating a softer look a lot easier than using my finger or a qtip and the creamy texture of the pencil really allows it to glide on smooth.
The Smudge liners come in 12 different colors.
With their superior long-lasting formula and rich colour pay-off, Annabelle Smudge liners are a must-have to add depth to any look! Let them glide to create a defined line, or blend gently with the built-in smudger tip to achieve a smoky, sultry look.
The colors I tested were Rich Chocolate, Vortex Violet & OhMyGoth!
Here are the swatches.
The rubber smudger on the back is easy to use and soft enough that it wont pull your skin too hard. Debuting in February of 2009 this liner was voted as the 2009 Chatelaine winner so you know it must be fab! (for a list of where you can find this product click here)
I also received the Marcelle High Definition Volume Mascara which I didn't think anything of until I tried it and WOW!
Just look at these lashes! Need I say more??
The website states it has a ultra-flexible polymer brush with microchambers that seizes lashes one by one, without clumps. That's exactly what it does however I don't find the brush all too flexible, in fact the bristles are quite sharp and I teared up the first time I used it as it hurt when it accidentally hit the inside of my eyelid. Once I got used to it however I haven't had that problem again and am totally satisfied with how well this mascara works for me.
It curls and separates my lashes just the way I like and although most times I use 2 coats by habit I really don't need to as one coat does just as good of a job. Its also enriched with oil olive and rice brand wax, and the revitalizing lightweight gel formula provides maximal volume without any heavy feeling. Another great thing that I find is super important these days in terms of mascara is that its hypo-allergenic and perfume free so reactions are less likely to happen.
Also released in February 2009 its available in 3 colors: Black, Soft Black & Brown and can be found at pharmacies and mass retails stores across Canada (for a list of where you can find this product click here)
