Help! I Can’t Stop Wearing Marcelle 2-in-1 Retractable Eyeliner in Amethyst.

I wore this eyeliner four times in the past week.  That’s a lot for someone who has makeup ADD.  Plus, I always have way too many products in rotation.  That must mean I like this a lot, and if you keep reading I’ll tell you why. :)

Marcelle 2-in-1 Retractable Eyeliner in Amethyst

Marcelle 2-in-1 Retractable Eyeliner in Amethyst ($10.95) is a beautiful deep eggplant.  The eyeliner has a thin tip that can be sharpened to a point using the included sharpener, or smudged out with the sponge smudger.

When I put this on as a final step to my eye makeup, I find it a little problematic.  When I line my lash line to finish off a look, I just don’t get enough colour payoff as I’d like.  It doesn’t seem to stick on top of powder eyeshadows that well.  Same goes for the waterline: the colour sticks around all day, but it doesn’t put down that much colour to begin with.  It’s just not as creamy as an Urban Decay 24/7 Liner Pencil.

On my primed and bare eyelids, however, this eyeliner is totally full of win! :)  While it doesn’t have the perfect melty consistency, it deposits more colour and is very smudgy.  The included sponge tool also works pretty well for smudging out the lines.  I still think that this could be more pigmented; I layer a couple of times to get the colour I want.  Here’s why I absolutely love it: once it’s set, it’ll stay where you put (or smudged) it all day without any fading or sliding.  It’s a godsend for someone who has oily eyelids syndrome. :)

Due to its beautiful and rich colour, its awesome staying power and its ability to give me a one-step smoky eye, this one’s a keeper. :)

Calling All Purple Addicts!

I wanna know your favourite purples (brands and shade names). I am planning to get MAKE UP FOR EVER #160 eyeshadow. Annabelle is coming out with a purple glitter liner called Pom Pom that I’m stalking the drugstores for. So pretty!

      It’s really nice. Great base for a purple smoky eye, which I’m planning to do later actually. :)

    LOVE. I love the deep, richness of this purple liner!
    I don’t normally wear purple eyeliner, but I do have Ransom from UD. I’ll have to check this one out!

      I know! I really love it for that too. You must have UD Rockstar. It’s like this liner, but better. :)

      I’m sorry! I can’t help it. ;)

    Ooh! Favourite purples? Yes, we can do that :D Unfortunately, NONE of them are liners (which breaks my heart), but… http://thenotice.net/2011/01/violet-swatches-to-brighten-a-monday-morning/

    Is it crazy that even with the zillion and five violet shadows, liners, and pigments in my possession, I’m not head-over-heels for any of them? I feel like I’m always having to pack them on & blend two or three shades together to get it *just* right. :(

      You are awesome!

    Wow, I’m impressed! You’re eyes look great, I never would have though you could accomplish that look with that stick – it’s pretty awesome!
