Good lip liners can be hard to find, especially at the drugstore. However, the Annabelle BigShow Gel Liners are delightfully well done. These can be found at Shoppers Drug Mart, Walmart and the Annabelle site. They retail for around $6.95 to $8.95 and come in 6 shades. I'm wearing the shade "Meet Rosie" in a recent Canadian Beauty Brands video on my YouTube channel.
Unlike many drugstore liners, these have a soft texture that is more like a lipstick then a pencil without being too creamy. These need to be sharpened, which I prefer, I find that retractable liners tend to dry out on me. I like that the packaging corresponds with the shade of the liner, makes it easy to reach for.
Annabelle Big Show Gel Liner Nude Attitude: Peachy beige nudeAnnabelle Big Show Gel Liner Red is Love: Bright red, slightly blue toned
Annabelle Big Show Gel Liner Royal Purple: Warm purple with some pink
Annabelle Big Show Gel Liner Call Me Pinky: Blue based light pink
Annabelle Big Show Gel Liner Fall for Fuchsia: Warm bright pink
Annabelle Big Show Gel Liner Meet Rosie: Mauvey rose
These remind me of the Make Up For Ever Aqua Lip Liners, which are some of my absolute favourites. They are less creamy than the Colourpop Lippie Pencils. I think you could wear them as a lipstick but a balm would be required. That being said, I do not find them drying when worn with a lipstick. I really, really like these. Especially with that price and ease of walking into the drugstore and grabbing them. The only downfall is the shade range, I want more!
If you are in the market for some new liners I think these make a great option. Drugstore or not they are well made and comfortable.
