New Annabelle Fall 2015 Beauty Launches and First Impressions

Annabelle has a few great things coming out this fall and I have had time to play around with a some of the releases so I figured I would do another first impressions type of post where I showcase to new items and share my thoughts on them.

Smokey Nudes Eyeshadow Palette
Yay! Another neutral drugstore palette! This one features some lovely neutral tones and the formula is quite lovely. The packaging is sleek and compact and the colors include warm and cold tones making this a well rounded palette. I like it!

Stay Sharp Metallic Waterproof Kohl Eyeliner
I love these self sharpening liners Annabelle and Marcelle put out and I have to give them mad props for being on top of the beauty trends and technology once again. Great, great liners!

Kohl Duo Liners
Nice basic liners but let’s be honest… I’m not going back to pencils after trying the self sharpening liners. I speak the truth!

Brow-To-Go Kit
This is a handy eyebrow palette that comes with two powders, a fixing gel tweezers and applicators to help you get those perfect arches. I am not a huge fan of powder brow products, personally, but this is a handy little kit and the colors are neutral and natural looking. I find powders are great for those that need help with enhancing the texture and volume of the brows, so if that’s what you need this kit might be a great option for you.

Brow Show Brow Liner + Highlighter
This two in one pencil has a great formula, the pencil does a great job at drawing in the brows, it’s nice and stiff and I love the neutral, ashy tone it has which looks so natural. The highlighter is great at cleaning up the edges and highlighting the brow bone. Great product.

Stay Sharp Long-Wearing Brow Liner
This is another self sharpening long wearing brow liner and it’s also one of my favorite products from the releases. It’s great for on the go, I love the fact that it’s always sharp and precise and the color I have is neutral and ashy.

Eyeink Liquid Eyeliner Duo
This double ended eyeliner has two tips: an ultra fine one to help you create precise lines and a fine tip for thicker ones. I like this eyeliner, I have been a long time fan of Annabelle Eyeink’s liners and this dual ended version is so much fun to use. I find the thicker tip to deliver a better better application than the fine one but the fine one is great for achieving those fine, precise lines. Honestly, the formula could be better, the pigmentation is not great and it’s not long lasting, the product can transfer and smudge through the day but I still love using it because I love the packaging and the felt tips. Marcelle has a similar product they released last year that I find to perform better.

Eyeink Mistake Proof Eyeliner and Corrector
This is also a dual ended marker type liner with a corrector at one end that is supposed to clean up the edges and help you correct mistakes. It comes in handy at cleaning up and sharpening my cat eye and I have to say I like it. Make sure you wipe away the tip in between uses as it can get messy.

Instaglam Kajal Eyeliner and Kajal
This dual ended liner has a thick marker like felt tip on one side and a kajal on the other one. It claims to be water resistant which I have yet to test but my first impression was that I kinda like it. The market is slightly too big for my own personal preference but I like the kajal a lot.
