Beauty Unveiling Event with Annabelle & Marcelle

Last night Annabelle & Marcelle Cosmetics hosted another amazing evening to present some of their latest offerings (read about their previous event here).

Here are the products that caught my eye:

Gorgeous pressed eyeshadow quads reminiscent of the Givenchy Le Prisme Eyeshadow Quartets. The shadows on the left are so unique – they are all the SAME COLOR, just with varying degrees of shimmer & texture!


Marcelle expanded their popular BB cream line to include: additional shades, added SPF, anti-aging benefits, and a cream-to-powder formula!  I was SO excited because I discovered these BB creams were oil-free, which means I can actually use them!

Annabelle debuted their BB range – along with a skin-retouching crayon that brightens on one end, and fills in fine lines on the other! I love skin-highlighting pencils – but have never used one to fill in lines before – I’m intrigued…

I also fell in LOVE with Annabelle’s TWISTUP Lipstick Crayons – they are so light and glossy.

Check out the gorgeous swatches – I’m seriously craving the fuchsia and the red ones.
 The event was also a great excuse to catch up with my favorite Toronto Beauty Blogger friends (I’m in the front row wearing aqua):

I loved hanging out with glowingly gorgeous mommy-to-be Farah (love her pink blazer):

Also met up with Rica back from her Hong Kong trip (lucky girl!) and made many new friends including the lovely Youtuber JustEnufEyes and blogger Linerglttrgloss.

As we left the event, we were totally SPOILED by an incredible goody bag – here’s mine:

I was so excited to see the skin-retouching pencil and BB creams in there. And how did Annabelle know I needed a new bronzer? As my skin is quite sensitive at the moment (go away acne – sob sob!) I’m going to do a giveaway of the amazing NEW-AGE skincare line – it’s too good to keep in storage! Check back soon for more details.

Have you tried Annabelle or Marcelle products before? Have you used BB creams?

    Looks like you ladies had a fantastic time! I'm really interested in trying those lip crayons – I love the ones from Tarte but they're more expensive.PS: Love your shirt & the necklace. What a great color on you. 🙂

      Thanks Lindsay – I'm really loving aqua & mint shades right now…I wasn't too sure about the off-the-shoulder style of the shirt – but I couldn't resist the color.

    What an amazing get together! You look radiant as ever in that lovely aqua top. And what color did you use on you lips? Was that one from home or from the event?

      Thanks Skylette! I was wearing Chanel lipliner in Rose Cuivre and Barry M lip paint in Raspberry topped with a pinkish-gold Lancome Juicy tube.

      Thanks Schnelle – it was really fun – and I loved the opportunity to speak directly with the company and get all my questions answered (especially about the BB creams).
