Annabelle Smoothie Eyeshadow Pencil Review

If you read my post on The Beauty Premiere then you know that Annabelle was handing out their Smoothie Eyeshadow Pencil's on a silver platter.  I've managed to grab 6 of them been using these for a few weeks now and all I can say is that they are amazing!

I love that these pencils are so versatile.  You can use them as eyeshadows, eyeliners, or an eye base.  One thing I should mention is that if you plan on using this as an eyeshadow you have to work pretty fast. I found that they dried pretty quickly making blending somewhat difficult.  But blending with a warm finger usually solved this problem for me.

As for application and colour payoff these Smoothies applied so smoothly and are packed with pigment.  They are extremely creamy but not messy.  Unlike Stila Kajal liners these liners stay put and don't crease!  An eyelid primer isn't necessary, trust me I'm an oily lid sufferer!  I am so impressed with the colour payoff one swipe and immediately you can see how rich it is .  If you're a makeup artist like myself I'd keep a few of these in your professional makeup kit!  

L-R: Absinthe-Minded, Mokamirage, Cocoaloco, Acaidasian, Blubomb, Licoriche

All in all Annabelle's Smoothie pencils are worth getting.  Lichoriche a rich black is my go to pencil as I love using it for a smokey eye and lining my waterline.  And can you believe this did not budge on my waterline either?  Ah-mazing right?!  I promise you these won't disappoint!
Suggested retail price: $8.95 CDN


  1. I want the Licoriche one. THANKS!

  2. @Crystal aka Sister that a hint for a Christmas gift?
    @Jenn thanks! Which colors did you nab from the party? They're awesome right?!

  3. Great swatches! The first time I tried one, it didn't work for me - didn't blend at all but I think the trick as you mentioned is to warm it - Arianne gave me that tip ;) I hope I get to try out more colours!

  4. Yeah it was tricky for me at first. But yes try the finger trick! :) Did you pass on them at the Beauty Premiere?
