NEW from Annabelle Cosmetics: Stay Sharp Waterproof Kohl Eyeliner and Stay Sharp Waterproof Lipliner

Dupe alert! Annabelle Cosmetics just released a collection of self-sharpening pencils - Stay Sharp Waterproof Lipliner and Stay Sharp Waterproof Kohl Eyeliner- that are comparable to Smashbox's Always Sharp Eye Liners and Lip Liners. The pencils are expected to start popping up in Canadian stores throughout August and will be online at annabelle.ca on August 18. 

I was intrigued with Always Sharp liners when they came out, but I'm actually a very hesitant liner buyer...yes. Liner buyer. It's a thing. 

So, I skipped out on them. With a price tag of $23 CA, the Always Sharp was a bit steep for a product I had heard very little hype about. Whereas the Annabelle's Stay Sharp liners are a mere $9.95. Now that's a price I can work with. 

One of the many reasons why I'm not a huge fan of liners is due to the sharpening requirement. I never seem to have a sharpener around. With the Stay Sharp Eyeliners and Lipliners, it appears that it would never be an issue. 

I like the concept of it. Basically, when putting the cap on or off the liner, you have to twist it. In doing so, you are sharpening the liner at the same time. There is a tiny ninja blade within the cap that will sharpen it and ensure you have a precise application every time. 

So that sounds pretty snazzy. So let's get into the nitty gritty!

From Annabelle Cosmetics 

The liner revolution: Sharper than a retractable liner!
Years ago, we were introduced to retractable liners, which rendered the use of a sharpener unnecessary. The downside? The point of the liner is quickly round and dull. Annabelle® steps in with inclusive blades to keep a sharp and precise tip. The Stay Sharp secret is in the cap!

The Annabelle® Stay Sharp twist-on cap includes a sharpener. Every time the cap is twisted back on the pencil, the blades sharpen the tip to perfection and neatly keep the shavings. No fuss, no mess!
