Annabelle Smoothie Eyeshadow Pencil in Grapefull

I'm a huge fan of jumbo eyeshadow pencils, so I was really excited to try out Annabelle's Smoothie Eyeshadow Pencil in the shade Grapefull* ($8.95 CAD/1.6g). This product promises creamy application and long-wearing colour - sounds great to me! I like to use jumbo pencils as either a cream eyeshadow base, or as a liner on my lower lash line.

"Beautiful shades and an unmatched smooth application, you will not find a longer-lasting, more comfortable eyeshadow pencil out there! Extreme long-wear colour (9h). Hypo-allergenic." - Annabelle

Annabelle Smoothie Eyeshadow Pencil in Grapefull

Annabelle Smoothie Eyeshadow Pencil in the shade Grapefull is a beautiful true purple colour. I really love purple eye shadows, as they aren't too bold (like blues or yellows), but they still add a pop of colour to your look. I've been using this jumbo pencil as both a cream eyeshadow base, and as a liner on my lower lash line. When used as a shadow base, this colour can be blended out to just give a sheer wash of purple, or it can be built up for a more vibrant look. This formula is extremely creamy and easily to blend, but it does set after about 30 seconds. True to the claims, this formula is long-wearing, and lasts on my eyes for about 10 hours before fading! I haven't had any issues with creasing, but that is fairly normal for my eyes.

I've been very pleased with this incredibly creamy formula, the pencil just glides onto your lids or lash line! Even though this formula is so creamy, it still does set quickly and lasts on my eyes all day long. The shade Grapefull adds a beautiful pop of purple to your eyes, but there are some other more neutral shades in this formula. I'm really wanting to try out the shades Licoriche (black) and Mokamirage (taupe). Have you tried out Annabelle's Smoothie Eyeshadow Pencils before? Are you a fan of jumbo pencils? :)

    1. The blue would be pretty on your lower lash line for a pop of colour while wearing a neutral eye look! :)

    3. Definitely try it out! I love adding a pop of colour to my lower lash line :) I wear glasses too, so I don't mind doing a more colourful eye behind the frames!
