Hey guys, this is a review on two of the Annabelle eyeliners- the Kohl liner and the Smudgeliner. Both are really inexpensive and you can probably purchase them at any drugstore (although Walmart would be cheaper). Both come in many colours ranging from the neutrals, like black or brown, to vibrant, bright colours like blue or purple.
Annabelle Kohl Eyeliner
The one I have is the green one- 109 Lotus. The label says it is hypo-allergenic. I’ve had this for a while now but hardly ever used it. This is why:
- Hardly any pigmentation
- Not creamy at all
- Does not glide on easily
- Doesn’t last long
Here is a swatch:
As you can see, it’s not that pigmented, which I don’t like.
I’m not sure if the neutrals are any better, but I also have the purple one (lost it unfortunately) and it pretty much sucks just as much, so I suggest testing it out on your hand before purchasing. There are many other drugstore liners that are a lot better than these ones, though I’m not sure if there are as many colors.
Don’t think that just because these ones suck that the Smudge liners are crap as well! In reality….
Annabelle Smudgeliner Eyeliner
I have this one in Atomic Surf, a really nice turquoise color. It comes with a smudge brush at the end (I lost the cap of mine :( ). The label claims it is ophthalmologist tested.
This eyeliner is actually one of my favorites ever because
- It’s suppppeerr pigmented
- Really creamy
- Slides on beautifully
- Has an extremely subtle metallic shine to it which brightens up the eyes
- The smudge brush that comes along with it helps smudge it out, making a really nice smokey effect
- Lasts quite long, for a couple of hours, by itself. Would last really long if you set it with powder!
Look how pigmented it is!!!!!!!!!! :D (especially compared to the kohl liner right next to it….)
Again, I don’t have it in any neutral colors but I definitely love the one I have. Usually, I would wear this on the bottom lash line, with either white or black on the water line (depending how dramatic I wanna be) and a black liquid liner to line the top. Top it off with mascara and your eyes will look beautiful! I will definetely try out the different colors once I have time to get it and let you all know how it is!
Thanks for reading and I hope I helped you! xoxo- Melissa
