Swatch time : Annabelle cosmetics obsession !
So after publishing the swatches of the new Annabelle cosmetics e/s I purchased, I realised how many I had left....They were sobbing in their palettes because they didn't received the fame and glory of the previous one so JUSTICE is done : here is the review....TADAAAA
FROM left to right : Snow flake, Vanilla chilla, Buff Naked, Sugar Dust, Metallic Meltdown (top of the triangle), So Foxy, Divine Diva, Silver, B-ray
I pictured them with flash (it's better to show the dark sparkly colors) and without flash (it doesn't wash out the pale colors). I just swatched the color that could showon my skin : Metallic melt down, so Foxy, Divine Diva, Silver, B-ray. Plus, I just have 5 fingers !
BEWARE (of the dog mouhahaha) : I am not sure of all the names. Why, why ?
1- because I am an old trout and my memory is not what it used to be (sad, sad !)
2- because the pans are not labelled at the back (but as a make up junkie, I am very proud to tell you I advised the company that it would be useful. Of course, they 're gonna listen to me (I AM SO POWERFUL WITH MY 25 FOLLOWERS : big voice !)....
Snow flake : pure white matte. Think Gesso(MAC).
Vanilla Chilla : Beige matte. I use it as a matte highlight.
Buff Naked : Beigy pink. I also use it as an highlight (I know, I have an insane obsession with highlight colors ...)
Sugar Dust : pretty, really pretty soft pink color with a lavender hue or the contrary ;-). This is love ...I use it with my purple looks in the inner part of the lid or to blend bright pink looks. As I said, I like it very much and the name is so cute !!(I say that with the voice of an excited teen !)
Metallic Meltdown : between gold and copper. A perfect color for a bronzey look. So flattering when popped in the liddle of the lid just to have the light to reflect above the eye color (dugh, not sure I make myself clear there...). At the top of the triangle because it's such an amazing color.
So Foxy : a creamy medium-dark brown. Probably the son of Expresso and Embark by MAC. I know this one doesn't seem that exciting but you need a medium-dark brown in your make up kit. It can replace a matte black in the outer V, it can be a crease color, you can dab it on top of your eyeliner to set it, it's fantastic smudged under the eye to create a rocker look without looking like a raccoon. Finally, it 's the e/s I used in a contest I won so I'll always love it till I die ...
Divine Diva : Plum color infused with gold glitter. The pale sister of Beauty marked (MAC). I could watch this color for ages on my hand. It is just BEAUTY.
Silver: I'll keep it simple : silver !
B-Ray : a dark navy color. Very pigmented, easy to blend (same consistency as So Foxy, kind of creamy for a powder, I know it's sounds weird !). I mostly use it as an outer V color for my blue looks.
I' ve done it ! IT was probably the longest blog message of the History !
Hope you enjoyed ...
PS : I paid those with my own money AND I am not objective : those e/s rock and I love them !
