If you remember the last time
I went to an Annabelle/Marcelle event it was a blast! Looks like Ashley had the same experience during their “Beauty Unveiling” event!
Annabelle and Marcelle Cosmetics hosted an event at Andrew Richards Design in Toronto. They unveiled their new beauty ideas and product lines for 2012. Luckily enough, I was invited to attend. Here’s a small write up of my experience – forgive the quality of the photos, all were taken from my blackberry camera.
This beautiful stand was the first thing my eye caught the second I walked in. That much make-up in one area, I was in love – an entire wall / stand of Annabelle’s infamous make-up products. If I were stealthy, I would have taken it ALL home! Check out all the colours – absolutely gorgeous.
is introducing a line of lip colours that are actually lip crayons. They work as both a liner and a lipstick and come in 12 gorgeous shades.
Here’s a swatch of a couple colours I liked the most. Look how pigmented and rich the colours are! Infused within the colours is shea butter, which will therefore keep lips enriched with moisture. The lip crayons themselves are retractable, and therefore, they are self-sharpening. Very convenient!
Next up was Annabelle’s new BB cream. Annabelle has pulled out all the stops for this one – they’ve introduced a new BB cream, a BB cream infused with SPF, a BB cream concealer pen, a BB compact, and a BB corrector pen. (Aside: ooh I’m looking forward to this BB cream seeing as I love the Marcelle BB cream so much!)
Check out the photo below. See the pens standing up on the right? Those are the corrector pens – they’re interesting and innovative because the white side acts as a ‘concealer’ and ‘filler’ of wrinkles, while the other side acts like a concealer. I can’t wait to dabble with this!
Next up, Marcelle
has introduced this cute little ‘quad’ eyeshadows in 72 shades. Forgive my photograph, the sunlight was directly behind the booth! Marcelle has designed them ingeniously for the user – there are two different options available for us. One is an assortment of complimentary colours, while the other is an assortment of monochromatic colours that vary from consistency and shades (i.e. matte, glimmer, tones, etc).
Keep your eyes peeled for the above products in stores. Hopefully, in the upcoming weeks, I’ll have some positive reviews for you all!
So sad I missed out on this one. 🙁 Annabelle and Marcelle throw some of the best events in Toronto! And also sad I didn’t get to meet up with my fellow Toronto Beauty Bloggers, but I’m glad Ash had a great time!
