During the International Women’s Day Sales, I picked up a few items from Annabelle Cosmetics. Annabelle was having a 40% off and free shipping event, so how could I resist?
My initial purpose was to grab a new Romance Twist Up Retractable Lipstick. I love that lippy. But I ended up perusing the new products for Spring 2017 and of course I found myself picking up a few items.

As I mentioned I had to get another Annabelle Twist Up Retractable Lipstick in Romance. I totally fell in love with this creamy shade a couple years ago and I NEEDED another. Romance is a nude mauve pink and it is my go to shade. I absolutely love the formula in these crayon lipsticks. They are hydrating and do not dry my lips out and do not enhance any dry patches on my lips. The Twist Ups are a winter favorite and one is always rolling around in my makeup bag.

I absolutely love retractable eyeliners. They are so easy and unmessy to use. Annabelle actually has a great selection of some retractable liners and they do them so well. I wanted to really try the gel formula of the Skinny Gel Eyeliner- Black Onyx ($8.95 CDN). This pencil thin gel liner is so creamy smooth and really black. It has a very tiny nib so it makes getting in between the lashes easy. But I really like Black Onyx on my waterline. The formula lasted all day in my waterline with only minor fading after10 hours. That is one of the best results I have ever had. Love.

R: Annabelle Chrome eyeshadow Rose Gold
I seem to go through matte vanilla shadows quite fast as I use them for an all over base shade almost every day so it was an easy choice to get the matte single shadow in Ivory ($5.95 CDN). This shade is a pretty pale nude with slight pink undertone. It blends easily and brightens my eye. I do use this as my starting base shade all over the eye to ‘set’ any primer with.
|Annabelle Skinny Palette - New Eve Goldy Browns|
I also had to try out one of the Chrome eyeshadows ($8.95 CDN) and a Skinny Palette ($9.95 CDN) . I was so impressed with the Chrome eyeshadow in Rose Gold and the Skinny Palette in New Eve Goldy Browns ($9.95 CDN) that I am going to do a separate review for them. Maybe an eye look?
Have you tried anything new from Annabelle Cosmetics?
