If you’re a woman in Canada chances are you’ve spent time in a store browsing the fabulous products from Marcelle & Annabelle. These products have been around for quite a while, I’ve personally been using them since I was a teenager. For years I looked forward to going to the department store and leisurely spending time brushing all the new colors onto my skin.

“Annabelle is a little nice, a little naughty and lots of style.
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.”
Of course after opening the package I occupied my children with a craft and headed into the bathroom to try them out.
First I applied the SkinTrue Pressed Powder – Medium first which went on beautifully. It provided me with a light full coverage but was light on my skin and didn’t wear off quickly.
For my eyes I went with the Trio Eyeshadow– Crème Caramel which gave me a soft velvety day-time look. The colors were perfect for me, I’m not a skilled artist when it comes to my eye makeup but I loved the how-to videos available on the Annabelle website.
The Duo-Blush – Glow Show matched my skin tone well, I loved that it was light upon my skin and accentuated my cheekbones softly.
Finally I fell in love with Rouge Velours Lipstick – Adrenaline – 210, it’s become my staple makeup item and never lets me down!
Realizing it was only 4pm and I wasn’t going anywhere I decided to try out the Moisturizing Eye Makeup Remover Pads, frankly I was surprised! They were so effective, removing all of the eye makeup I’d applied in just a few strokes. These little pads have saved me so much time when I’ve wanted to reapply my eye makeup throughout the day!
