Omg, the temperature today was not playing nice (felt like -1 this morning), so what’s better than talking about beautiful colours?
Annabelle has brought out some awesome lip colours lately, and I received a few shades to show you.
The Metal Mix (LE) collection came out with 4 TwistUps with metallic finish, $9.95 each. From top – bottom: Nude of Fame, Rock & Rose, Heavy Petal and Heartbreaker.
Don’t be alarmed by how bold the colours look in the tube. These Metal Mix shades are more sheer, and the metallic finish is very subtle, providing your lips a beautiful sheen. Same quality as the core TwistUps, no doubt.
Heartbreaker is the most pigmented among the 4, is great on its own and fades into a semi-matte finish. The other three shades wear nicely with a lip liner underneath. If you come across the display, check these out
Brand new this year is the Annabelle Stay Sharp Waterproof lip liners. Featuring here are Java and Glam Red.
I am totally on board with the concept of self-sharpening lip liners, as I love precise lines without carrying a sharpener and the mess that comes with using it.
So the Stay Sharp twist-on cap includes a sharpener. When you twist the cap to close (until you hear a click), the blades sharpen the tip of the liner and keep the shavings. Cool huh?
The Stay Sharp liners are supposed to be made of soft lead for a smooth application, good pigmentation and lasting power up to 6 hr with no transfer.
I can pick a favorite between Java and Glam Red, you see? Good thing they are good for different occasions, no competition there
On my hand, the swatches, after quickly set, showed a bit of transfer during a swiping test and took quite a bit of rubbing with a makeup wipe to remove. On my lips, they had good coverage, wore comfortably and last about 5 hours. And the self sharpening thing totally rocked!
The Stay Sharp liners come in 6 colours, $9.95 each. Annabelle is offering $4 off online and in store (with a printable coupon), making them a great steal.
