Annabelle SmudgePaint review

Yes you have seen these Annabelle SmudgePaints in the same display with the Best of Black collection. So it is only fair that they get some exposure too, right?

I have the SmudgePaint in Plummed to review today. First, give Annabelle props for the fun packaging. Part of the lid comes apart to make the (built-in) brush, one that is actually usable. I use the flat side for swiping/ smudging the paint, and the thin side for lining.

SmudgePaints are supposed to be creamy gel shadows and liners all in one pot. They claim to be water and crease resistant, and long lasting, and I agree to all.

This is a few swipes to make the swatch wide enough for the pic, but not for pigmentation, as they are packed with a punch. You know I’m more of a pencil liner fan but I didn’t have any problem applying this along the lash line. It was a smooth application, like a dream.

This first swatch is in natural light, and the one below is with flash.

It does look a little shimmery under the flash, but not noticeable on the lid, nor glittery in any case.

I’m a big fan of this eggplant type of purple colour, but if you aren’t, there are 4 other colours to choose from. These retail around CAD10.95 each, 0.07oz/ 2gr. Note that the pots are smaller than regular gel eyeliners. For comparison, the Maybelline EyeStudio gel eyeliners are 3gr.

For those who need to know, main ingredients include: Dimethicone, Cyclomethicone, Polyethylene, Isododecane, Polybutene, Trimethylsiloxysilicate, PVP/ Hexadecene Copolymer, Ozokerite, etc.

A quick FOTD with Plummed on the upper lash line. I used the thin side of the brush for a very slim line along my lashes, which is not ideal for blog pictures. But I enjoy wearing it this way, not too noticeable but still creates a defined eye look.

Notice my new feather earrings? I got a few pairs, and some feather clips for my hair too, from a local seller. They will make appearance on more FOTD, rest assured 🙂

A closeup on the eyes. My next experiment would be a smudge eyeshadow look to see how this SmudgePaint behaves. But so far, I’m in love already. The only thing I might change is the small size, I want more of it in the pots if I am going to use it as an eyeshadow as well.
