Get ready for colours, as Annabelle's Spring release this year is just that!
Meant to be shiny, lightweight, non sticky, non drying, pigmented and long wearing, Big Show lacquers are a hybrid of a lipstick (for the saturated colours), a gloss (for the shine) and a stain (for lasting power).
The line includes Adore Simply, Caress Tenderly, Kiss Sweetly, Enchant Romantically, Love Fiercely and Hypnotize Deeply.
Shade names are printed in black on clear stickers at the bottom of the tubes, a little hard to read. Wouldn't it be more fun if those beautiful names are just written right on the tubes?
The slanted sponge tip applicator is basic and small, and it works.
Important note: Try not to layer too much or the product will leave a bit of residue line on the inside of the lip.
The lacquers have a fruity vanilla scent that is noticeable during application but not much longer after that.
With the exception of Adore Simply being very light (cool toned pink tinted), the other 5 shades (Caress Tenderly, Kiss Sweetly, Enchant Romantically, Love Fiercely and Hypnotize Deeply) are bright, but not as bold as how they look in the tubes.
The lacquers are $9.95 each, $5 off online right now, for limited time!
The formula is supposed to be quick dry, glossy, long lasting (up to 24hrs) and glide on easily without smudging/ flaking.
I can confirm most of these claims, except for the 24 hour part as I did not wear makeup that long. The liners did last through my normal work days and gym classes. I found some tiny transfer when I wore just the eyeliner on the lash line, so I recommend adding at least a wash of eyeshadows on the lids with it.
Standard packaging for liquid eyeliners, with short tip (slightly firm, great for newbies like me) and long handle.
The colours have good coverage so I don't need to layer them on, and the sparkles are a nice touch.
The green tint in Black Star makes it appear less intense than a pure black. Bronze is a little too close to my skin tone to be noticeable. Blue Spark is naturally the bold colour of choice and it does not disappoint.
