Marcelle Fall 2015 - Eyes & Brows

Posted by Halifax @ Sparkled Beauty

Now that we saw Marcelle Fall lip and cheek products, you know that the lineup for the eyes and brows would be equally fun.

There are familiar things - the Forever Sharp liners, a skinny brow pen of some sort, and then there is a new version of a mascara we have seen before :)

Let's get to them now.

I received a Forever Sharp eyeliner in Blackest Black and a Forever Sharp eyebrow pencil in Medium Brown.

Lasting power was quite good, till near the end of the day and they did not move around once set. I do find they are a little less waterproof/ smudge proof than the Forever Sharp lip liners.

The eyebrow pencil is specifically said to have a natural matte finish, while I think the eyeliner is the same way. No complaints.

The only thing is, after testing Annabelle Stay Sharp brow liner in Taupe, I prefer that subtle cool-toned shade than what I thought was more of a match for me (darker brown, warm toned). Forever Sharp in Medium Brown certainly works for me, colour wise, but it'd just come down to preference of the moment, I guess :)

There are 7 other shades in the eyeliner line with this launch and 2 other universal shades for the brows. The pens are 0.008oz/ 0.25g, $11.95 each.

If the pointed (self sharpened) tip of Forever Sharp is still not precise enough for you, check out the Nano eyebrow liners, also waterproof, long lasting with matte natural finish.

This is Blond, again not totally my shade but I use it together with Annabelle Brow Show brow liner + highlighter for a muted colour.

Keep in mind, that tip is very tiny in comparison to the Forever Sharp, and the spoolie on the end is always handy. The line has 4 other shades, 0.003oz/ 0.09g, $11.95.

Here are the swatches of Forever Sharp eyeliner in Blackest Black, Forever Sharp eyebrow pencil in Medium Brown and Nano eyebrow liner in Blond.

On to the Xtension Plus Curl mascara.

You probably remember the Xtension Plus mascara that came out Fall 2013, a lengthening and curling mascara. Now this Xtension Plus Curl version emphasizes even more on curling effects, with a curved brush.

I find the shape of the brush makes it harder to get to the shorter lashes in the inner corner of the eyes, also harder to coat all the lashes or layer unless you had mastered the skill.

On me, this mascara provides similar results as the original Xtension Plus, maybe a little more curl but not much. I do enjoy their lengthening effect, and they do not smudge or flake on me.

The tube is 0.33oz/ 9ml, retails $12.95. Between the 2 versions, pick the brush you are more comfortable with, or go with the Xtension Plus + Pro Lash Growth Complex mascara.
