Marcelle Waterproof Eyeliner Review

I'm always on the lookout for new eyeliners to add to my makeup collection and makeup artist kit.  So when Marcelle was handing these out at The Beauty Premiere I was ecstatic!  I like that there's a pretty wide range of colours to choose from.  I especially love that they are waterproof and resist heat and humidy.  I've yet to try them in extreme weather but so far in this cold weather we're having I must say that they do hold up to my watery eyes.  Ever get that cold wind in your eyes that it makes you tear? Not to worry cause your liner won't smear!

The formula is smooth and creamy so it glides on seemlessly.  I like to use these as either a base or liner.  My favourite colour is Blue Lagoon which is a good dupe for Urban Decay's 24/7 liner in Flipside.  Check out the pic below for a comparison.

L: Urban Decay 24/7 Flipside  R: Marcelle Blue Lagoon
(UD is slightly lighter in colour)

Wondering how it compares to UD 24/7 liners?  I'd have to say they're pretty close in my experience.  Both are smooth and creamy but I'd say Urban Decay is a tad more creamier and pigmented than Marcelle's.  With that said the Marcelle liners seemed to dry a lot faster than UD's. I guess that's because they UD is creamier.  As for lasting power I'd have to say they are pretty close.  Both last a really long time.  I have oily lids and after about 7 hours both begin to to crease and smear on my greasy lids.  So if your lids are anything like mine it's best to wear a primer under these.  If you don't want to dish out 20 something bucks on the Urban Decay liners then Marcelle is a good alternative for about half the price (suggested retail price $10.50).

L - R: Blue Lagoon, Green Metal, Bronze, Fairytale Pink, Mulberry, Imaginary Mauve

  1. The swatches don't look as pigmented as the Annabelle Smoothies... Compared to those, which do you prefer?

  2. So pretty!!!!! I'm so drawn to that blue lagoon one.

  3. @Crystal good question. I love both but I'd have to say Annabelle.

    @Elaine isn't Blue Lagoon gorgeous?! Love it for undereye lining!

  4. I am always interested to try different shades of eyeliner. Black and blue are my favorite colors. Thanks for the review.

  5. How are these on the waterline?

  6. @Sadie They work pretty well for me. I do find that it will fade after a while. I like the Annabelle Smoothies best for my waterline instead.
