Most of you already know I film YouTube videos. I’m not entirely sure what I’m doing with them, and I’m not entirely comfortable on camera yet (even after a year!) – but I’ve ended up doing a Makeup Swap once with my American friend Katie. I sent her some Annabelle products along with some other fun goodies that she couldn’t get down in the States. Katie also sent me some products that weren’t available to us Canadians. Right now I’m completely in love with my Sonia Kashuk hidden concealer palette that you can buy at Target. I need another, soon!
Well, Annabelle cosmetics is coming out with some new products that should launch this July-August. Annabelle have recently renewed themselves with a first campaign with Marie-Mai. She looks familiar, but I’m still not sure who she is. Anyway, some of the items that will be launched in the next few weeks should be fun to play around with.
If you didn’t already know Marcelle & Annabelle are the same company, so it’s only appropriate that Annabelle now come out with a BB cream as well. Marcelle, is the number 1 selling BB cream right now in drug stores. Plus – it’s only of the better one’s that I’ve used. See my review on Marcelle BB cream here and here.
Annabelle’s BB cream will be SPF 15. Basically a BB cream is a few different products in one. First, it works as a moisturizer, a sun screen, it brightens your skin, primes and hydrates, providing coverage to your skin as well! I do not have any issues with oil on my face, but this one will have shine control.
BB Compact Makeup: This product will be lightweight and feel very satiny-smooth on your face. It is a powder foundation and it will give your skin radiance, complete with a flawless finish. You can use the double-sided sponge to gain light or moderate covers to your face.
BB Skin Perfect Corrector I would probably use a corrector like this for imperfections on my face, such as dark circles or any pigmentation spots.
BB Skin Retouch Crayon This is actually a double-ended crayon type of product. I’d use it as an eyebrow highlighter, down the nose or on the cheek bones. But this claims to instantly erase fine lines (which I have a hard time believing). I can see it refreshing your eyes and making you seem more awake if you put it in the “tear duct” area of your eyes. Possibly an essential for the party-goer for the morning after?
Think you’ll be picking up any of these items from the new Annabell collection?
