The new generation of brightly coloured long wear eyeshadow. Waterproof, crease-free and mess-free, the Smoothie eyeshadow pencils will keep going as long as you do! Use them as a liner, as an eyeshadow by using only one shade all over the lid or by blending more colours of Smoothie pencils together, or even as an eyeshadow base to give your favourite powdered shadows a professional hold and an outstanding colour pay-off! The makeup junkie in you will be ecstatic! Easy to apply, convenient and fast, this versatile, creamy, light-weight pencil is available in a variety of vibrant hues. -Annabelle Cosmetics ($8.95 CAD)
For as long as Annabelle makes the Smoothie Eyeshadow Pencils and releases new colours, I will buy them. This are the best executed shadow pencil I have tried to date and my only gripe is that there aren’t enough colours to satisfy me!
The formula is very similar to Urban Decay’s 24/7 Glide on Shadow Pencils, except they are smoother. Yes, smoother! Oh yea, and did I mention that they are also $12 cheaper than Urban Decay?
These work best when applied directly to the eye from the pencil. Because they are so smooth, there isn’t any tugging of the super sensitive skin on your lid resulting in a smooth finish without creping. The consistency is like smooth butter and they apply opaque, but they are easily sheered out with a blending brush or fingers. Smoothie Pencils can be worn alone or as shadow bases (evidenced here and here). I got a solid 8-10 hours wear out of these each time I wore them which is a huge accomplishment on my eyes.
