Review: Annabelle Smudge Paint

6 Sep

Hello everyone! Canadian goodies today well technically goodie but still a really great drugstore find.

*I apologize for no swatch photo because it got lost trying to find it’s way here.

Description: A smudge-resistant liner with a smooth formula for any eye-look.

Review: Straight off the bat I have to say that I absolutely adore this liner. I am not usually a gel liner person due to the amount of time it takes to get ready in the morning but with this I’ve been converted (if only on the weekends when I have time). The product itself is quite small about the size of a Canadian quarter and is filled up very nicely. I dislike how the gel liner was packaged though it has a small hole to poke your brush in and when you reach the bottom you can’t reach much of the eyeliner on the side which is a bummer as I wanted to get all the product that was available in the pot.

This is one of the better gel liners that I have tried the formula isn’t as thick as say the Maybelline Eyestudio Gel liner but has a very creamy almost mousse like texture to it. This though makes it very easy to pick up a lot of product due to extremely soft nature of the gel. But on the eyes it glides on smoothly like the Annabelle Smudgeliners (review here) though I feel it is even smoother than the pencil form. The lasting power is amazing I have extremely oily lids so when I didn’t use any primer it still stayed on for about 6-7 hours which is crazy but I found that if I applied a little bit too much it will crease at around the 3-4 hour mark. So thin layers of the product is recommended. Pigmentation is just lovely I picked up Tar which is the basic black shade and it is pigmented like no tomorrow.

Overall, I think this eyeliner rocks and would definately recommend all of you Canadian girls to pick up some!

Cost: $9-13CDN @ various drugstores and supermarkets

Would I recommend this product? Those who live in Canada RUN don’t walk RUN to your local drugstore to pick these guys up they are AMAZING and totally worth their price. I apologize for those who live abroad as Annabelle is only available in Canada but if you make a good Canadian friend a swap should be in order.

Finished Products #2

7 Jun

Hello everyone! A finished products post as tomorrow you shall be bombarded by something more sinister… just wait till tomorrow to find out. Anyways, I only finished 17 products so nothing to brag about but after a collection picture this it feels like an accomplishment.

Pick me up!

13 Jul

Instead of the usual title of “Haul” or something related to it I decided on this title… maybe I should do a haul type of category… putting that aside here are the things that I have picked up today. (I tend to buy things over the course of some time but lately I haven’t had time to go every other day and such so this time I saved up for it and got it all in one day)

Items include:

Annabelle – Custom Quad

Lipsmackers – Lipbalm in Watermelon (heh my favourite)

Maybelline – Dream Matte Powder in Medium, Dream Matte Mousse Concealer in Medium (too dark for me)

N.Y.C. – Blushable Creme Stick in South St. Seashell, Lip Slider Tinted Lip Balm in Sugar Coated, Individual Eyes in Union Square (for Brown Eyes)

Sallys Natural Beauty Inspired by Carmindy – Sheerest Cream Blush in Sunrise and Ginger

Shiseido – SPF35 Powder Foundation in SP30 (including compact)

Tokidoki – Prisma Lipgloss in Burger (orange) and Ninja Dog (light blue)

So this means a lot of reviews are going to come up. >.< For the Tokidoki items they are for my birthday so I can’t use them or open them even though I am very VERY tempted too.

Beauty Intro: Annabelle Cosmetics

26 Apr

It’s been a while since I’ve done a Beauty Intro category so today’s company is Annabelle Cosmetics.

From their website:

” A bit of a rebel, a natural trend-setter, edgy and incredibly versatile. Annabelle is the one with the latest and trendiest shades that make us want to rush out and get the look. Colour is her instrument of change, letting her reinvent her style and makeup to suit her ever-changing moods, from goddess to rock star to fashion diva! She is daring and bold and demands the same from her makeup brand, a perfect combination of glamour and efficiency.

Driven by its passion for fashion-forward looks, Annabelle Cosmetics collaborates with internationally renowned makeup artist Julie Bégin. She has worked for influential and trend-setting magazines such as W and Vogue, and stars such as Madonna and Alanis Morissette. She now contributes to the brand through her expertise and talent and injects her own special modern perspective. Incredibly versatile, she is just as comfortable lending her artistic talents to creating a highly colourful or dramatic face as she is applying the newest trends or the most glamorous and sophisticated looks. She is passionate about her freedom for expression, which she instils to the Annabelle product range.

Since 1999, Annabelle Cosmetics has been part of the Groupe Marcelle, the Canadian leader in drugstore brand cosmetics with some 2,000 points of sale across the country. ”

Sounds like a great company right? Sorry for those who live outside Canada but they only sell their products in Canada.

Some of their products that I personally love are the concealer quad, custom quads, blushes, and all their eyeliners.
