Summer 2012: Annabelle
Annabelle is launching some pretty neat products this season. Here are just a few things you can find in stores this July. They also announced their new spokes person Marie-Mai.
While bronzer is definitely not my thing (so pale, I am just clueless at it) this stuff feels amazing and blends very well. Avalible in two shades, Sun Kissed and Sun Goddess they are definitely worth checking out for the SRP of $7.95
They may not a new product, there will be six new shades out this July. creamy, rich and high in pigmentation, they are definitely worth checking out. I want new pink one.
Oh did I mention the SRP is $5.95, that is a great deal!
"Water based formula that transforms any powder eyeshadow into creamy liquid shadow"
This bottle 100% looks like a high end brands HD elixir, yearn you know who's. I am tempted to try this out just because it looks so pretty. I am very interested in it because I love anything that makes powders into liquids. SRP $8.50.
This pencil makes touch ups a breeze, as well as an amazing concealer. I was highly impressed with its silky feel and blendablity. On my must pick up list. SRP $12.95.
BB Cream Multi-Action Beauty Balm SPF 15
"This all-in-one miracle solution is much more natural for the skin than a foundation. It constitutes a novel fusion of makeup and skin care that perfects, brightens, primes, hydrates and protects the skin. In addition to concealing imperfections and signs of fatigue with its Soft Focus microspheres, this balm tones and firms the epidermis, helps absorb excess sebum and controls shine."
I am huge fan of the Marcelle BB so to try out Annabelle's been very exciting. It feels a bit more like a tinted moisturizer than the Marcelle version does, but it blends out amazingly. I really have been loving the texture of this one. SRP $15.95. *Please note the SPF 15 is UVB only (no UVA protection provided)
"This lightweight, satiny powder foundation glides over the skin to assure a radiant skin tone and flawless finish, day after day. Furnished with a double-sided sponge, the BB Compact Makeup allows you to vary the coverage from light to moderate, depending on the occasion."
The sponge on this product blew me away. One side for full coverage the other for touch ups or light powdering, WOW! I have yet to try this on my skin but loved how it felt at the unveiling a few weeks back and must buy when it becomes available. SRP $15.95.
