Annabelle | New for Fall 2013Wednesday, August 14, 2013
Annabelle Cosmetics has come out with a couple new product launches for Fall. I've already seen the eye products in store -- I spotted a display at Shoppers Drugmart. I received a few products a couple weeks ago, so I thought I'd share them with you.
Let's start with the new eye products...
Annabelle Retractable EyelinersI love Annabelle's eyeliners. My favourite is the Smoothliner in Brownie, but I'm also loving their new retractable eyeliner. I have the shade Twilighting*, a smokey purple shade, and it's a great colour. I usually wear blacks and browns, so it is a nice change. Application is smooth, no tugging, and it lasts quite a while. I love that it's retractable -- no sharpening necessary. However, if you want a precise line, it has a built-in sharpener to create a pointy tip. I will definitely be picking up other colours.
Pricing & Availability: $9.95, Shoppers Drugmart
Annabelle Quad EyeshadowsThere are six brand new eyeshadow quads, from neutral shades to smokey shades. I have the quad in Pink-a-Boo*. The colours range from purples to pale pinks. Each shade feels silky and smooth, and are fairly pigmented (or at least the deeper shades). They're very easy to work with. I want to pick up the more neutral palettes, like Java Jive and Chai Chai Chai.
Pricing & Availability: $11.99, Shoppers Drugmart

Annabelle Retractable TwistUp Lipstick CrayonI recently discovered these lip colours & I'm loving them. There was already a nice colour selection, but Annabelle is adding 12 new shades. From brights to reds to nudes to bordeaux. The creamy texture is comfortable on the lips (fairly hydrating). I love the twisty convenience -- no sharpener required.
I received the shades Monroe* (bright red), Vamp* (wine bordeaux), and Cherry* (dark red wine). I'm sure Cherry was mislabelled because it seems to be the exact same shade as Vamp, but Vamp does look like it will be a perfect shade for Fall.
Pricing & Availability: $10.99, Shoppers Drugmart
