September Empties

29 Sep

Hello everyone!

A photo of empties this month which has been collecting since August… crazy the amount of things that I go through especially shampoo and conditioner… must be because I share with my sister. But anyways, only two makeup products were finished the past two months and they are both blushes yay! Here’s the group photo.

Review: Annabelle Smudge Paint

6 Sep

Hello everyone! Canadian goodies today well technically goodie but still a really great drugstore find.

*I apologize for no swatch photo because it got lost trying to find it’s way here.

Description: A smudge-resistant liner with a smooth formula for any eye-look.

Review: Straight off the bat I have to say that I absolutely adore this liner. I am not usually a gel liner person due to the amount of time it takes to get ready in the morning but with this I’ve been converted (if only on the weekends when I have time). The product itself is quite small about the size of a Canadian quarter and is filled up very nicely. I dislike how the gel liner was packaged though it has a small hole to poke your brush in and when you reach the bottom you can’t reach much of the eyeliner on the side which is a bummer as I wanted to get all the product that was available in the pot.

This is one of the better gel liners that I have tried the formula isn’t as thick as say the Maybelline Eyestudio Gel liner but has a very creamy almost mousse like texture to it. This though makes it very easy to pick up a lot of product due to extremely soft nature of the gel. But on the eyes it glides on smoothly like the Annabelle Smudgeliners (review here) though I feel it is even smoother than the pencil form. The lasting power is amazing I have extremely oily lids so when I didn’t use any primer it still stayed on for about 6-7 hours which is crazy but I found that if I applied a little bit too much it will crease at around the 3-4 hour mark. So thin layers of the product is recommended. Pigmentation is just lovely I picked up Tar which is the basic black shade and it is pigmented like no tomorrow.

Overall, I think this eyeliner rocks and would definately recommend all of you Canadian girls to pick up some!

Cost: $9-13CDN @ various drugstores and supermarkets

Would I recommend this product? Those who live in Canada RUN don’t walk RUN to your local drugstore to pick these guys up they are AMAZING and totally worth their price. I apologize for those who live abroad as Annabelle is only available in Canada but if you make a good Canadian friend a swap should be in order.
