Lined & Defined with Annabelle Cosmetics Stay Sharp Liner and Big Show Mascara

Back in July the Canadian Beauty Bloggers chose Annabelle to be our brand of the month. Annabelle Cosmetics kindly sent me some products to review during that month, however, due to receiving the products only a few weeks ago, testing time did not allow me to get the post up until now.

Honestly, Annabelle isn't a brand I normally gravitate towards at the drugstore. I'm not sure why, it's just always been like that. After taking some time to try these products, I'm happy to say that Annabelle is a brand that I'm going to be paying more attention to in the future.

The products I'm reviewing today will help keep your eyes lined and defined with innovative packaging, that keeps everything sharp and on point. Annabelle Cosmetics proudly introduces the very first to mass market self-sharpening liner with the New Stay Sharp Waterproof Kohl Eyeliner.

This new eyeliner comes equipped with the stay sharp twist-on cap which includes a sharpener. Every time the cap is twisted back on the pencil, the blades sharpen the tip to perfection and neatly keep the shavings in the cap. No fuss, no mess!

These eyeliners offer an easily blendable formula that lasts up to 12 hours, once it sets. And once they are set there is no smudging or transferring to any other part of your eye. This is a huge selling feature for me because my eyelids get extremely oily during the day. Because they are ophthalmologist tested, they are safe to use on the waterline.

This product retails for $9.95 and comes in 6 different shades to help you create a multitude of looks. Today, I am reviewing the liner in Cappuccino, but it also comes in Go Black, Graphite, Ultraviolet, Midnight, and Forest.

Annabelle BIG SHOW Waterproof Mascara

Although, I don't normally purchase Annabelle cosmetics, this is a mascara that I have used before, and I've been a long time fan. The brush and formula really provide lots of length and volume to my lashes. The waterproof formula holds a curl well, and lasts all day without flaking or smudging.

I find this mascara a bit of a hassle to wash off at the end of the day, but that is just the nature of waterproof mascaras. I would definitely repurchase this in the non-waterproof formula in the future.
Overall, I am in love with both of these products and find myself reaching for them on a daily basis. Cappuccino defines my eyes without looking too harsh, and this mascara keeps my lashes full and flirty all day long. If you pick up anything new from the drugstore, definitely put these two items on your list.
