Today we are talking about one of our favourite Canadian beauty brands, Annabelle Cosmetics latest releases for Spring 2016. We have posted a few reviews of their products on the blog previously (see stories here & here) and their new releases do not disappoint.
Annabelle has released 6 stunning shades of their new BIGSHOW Lacquer Lip Lacquers. The colours are all so pretty & vibrant – absolutely perfect for Spring!
We have always really liked Annabelle’s lip products and have tried many of them over the years. However we do have to say that these new lip lacquers exceed some of their other previous lip products. We absolutely LOVE them and know they are going to be our go-to lip staple all Spring/Summer long.
BIGSHOW Lacquers ($9.95) provide the colour pigmentation of a lipstick, long-lasting colour similar to that of a lip stain and of course, they leave a beautiful glossy finish. They give you the benefits of 3 different lip products in 1.
We were pleasantly surprised to discover how pigmented these glosses are. They offer quite a bit more colour pigmentation than a regular gloss which is nice. The formulation is quite impressive for the price.
BIGSHOW Lacquers apply smoothly, are NOT sticky and provide a nice even colour. They also have a sweet but subtle fruity scent.
Annabelle’s original Big Show Lip Shine actually won the 2014 Elle Canada award for Best Lip Gloss Under $20.
Laura’s favourite shade is Adore Simply – the lightest shade available in this collection. It’s a beautiful natural nude, light pink shade. Really easy to wear and flattering on all skin tones.
Natasha’s favourite is Caress Tenderly – a vibrant coral orange with subtle shimmer.
NEW WATERPROOF LIQUID EYELINERS ($8.95)
3 Shades Available: Black Star, Bronze and Blue Spark.
Another new release for Spring 2016 is Annabelle’s new Waterproof Liquid Eyeliners. These eyeliners are ultra-pigmented & long lasting. No flaking, smudging or having to reapply it throughout the day. We really like that the application tip is skinny – makes it easier to apply and create different looks.
