Annabelle is a makeup brand based in Canada. It's sold at many drugstores and comes with an affordable price tag. One thing that distinguishes Annabelle from the other drugstore brand is its pretty and professional packaging. The single eyeshadow looks like MAC's exactly. Quality and pigmentation is good as well!
I finally picked up their custom quad eyeshadows a few days ago and I must say, I'm quite pleased with the texture and color payoff.. really smooth and pigmented for $3! I got it on sale, reg is $4-$5 which is still cheap!!! Here I am putting them into my palette! I found it in the house so it must belong to one of my sisters but it's mine now! muahahaha
Annabelle also comes up with limited edition products every season which is great and I always get at least one thing from the line. This Winter, they launched their Super Nova Collection which includes 3 dome eyeshadow trios, glitter eyeliners, glitter dust, striped highlighter, and a pinky nude lipgloss. I went to Shoppers Drug Mart two weeks ago and picked up 2 eyeshadow trios because they really caught my eyes! The consistency is exactly like MAC's mineralized duo eyeshadow (I own Engaging and compared). Here are the swatches applied dried, you can imagine how vibrant it'd be if applied wet. I think they are baked and mineralized but don't quote me on that.
I love Bling Blang (lilac, lime green, pastel blue) the most even though the colors are more reminiscent of Easter and Moon Illusion (white, cream, black) is really pretty and versatile too. The other trio was Blue Nebula (grey, charcoal, navy blue) but I don't wear enough blue to care for that one.
And lastly, I picked up Gosh's Velvet Touch lipstick in Darling 134. Very moisturizing, nice smell, pretty light nude color with pink undertones. I wouldn't wear this lipstick on it's own though because it is really pale. Top it off with a light pink lipsgloss and you're good to go! :) I've been wearing it since I got it! can't get enough!
On a different, I came home yesterday and found out that I won the DSK Jewelry Lottery for the month of October! WOWWEEE! I am so stoked!! hehe For those of you who don't know, Steph (the brains behind DSK Jewelry) is a girl who makes swarovski crystal jewelry and sells them online. Popular gurus on youtube such as Bubz and Holly sport her intricate pieces... and now I win some moon pendants! So happy! Please check out her site and follow her for the chance to win next month's lottery! It could be YOU!
