Annabelle Cosmetics Mineral Pigment Dust

When it comes to eye shadows my favorite formulas tend to be loose pigments. Loose mineral shadows usually provide more color pay-off and vibrancy compared to the average pressed variety. I have been using Annabelle shadows for years; in fact some of my very first eye shadows were from this brand and they tend to have a long shelf life. Today I have a review on the Mineral Pigment Dust in a gorgeous olive green called Eco Chic.

This Pigment is rich and contains fragments of fine glitter and pearl particles that catch light and make eyes standout. With a good primer it provides long-wear and the the color is substantially brighter than it appears in the jar with a high shimmer finish.

Using a flat shadow brush I pat the pigment onto my lids; do not use swiping motions as this tends to scatter the particles and create fall-out. The packaging is designed with a hole at the top instead of a sifter which is less messy but a bit difficult to dip a brush into so I usually open the jar.

Below is a look I created using Eco Chic. The shadow is easy to work with and the color adheres well to skin allowing you to build-up the saturation and intensity. I paired it with Annabelle's retractable lip pencil and Annabelle's Beauty Balm, both of which I will be reviewing soon.

The shadows are available in 6 great shades and are talc, paraben and perfume free. They can also be applied wet for more dramatic results and retail for $8.95 each. The quality is very good so I definitely recommend trying them. You can find them online HERE and at select drug stores including Shoppers Drug Mart.

Annabelle Eye Makeup Remover Pads
After applying this gorgeous shadow and adding layers of mascara and liner I needed something to remove my eye makeup effectively. Annabelle has some fantastic fragrance-free, moisturizing remover pads that help lift and dissolve waterproof and long-wear makeup.

There are 75 pads per jar and the size is convenient for use on the go or travel. Each pad is soaked in an oil formula which helps emulsify makeup without irritating eyes or skin. Although there is sufficient oil, the pads are mess-free and non-drip.

They work well to loosen stiff, mascara coated lashes and wipe away liner and shadow quickly and efficiently. I recommend folding the pad over lashes and holding for a few seconds to gently loosen mascara and reduce the loss of lashes.

The pads are perfume free which is ideal for those with allergies or sensitive skin. Although they work like a charm the jar does smells strongly of oil but individual pads do not have a strong odor. They are effective despite their thinness but they do tend to stick together. Overall they are great!

You can find the makeup remover HERE, it retails for $6.95

  3. I love makeup remover pads for eye makeup. Currently I just use Almay ones, but I noticed my skin is starting to get a little irritated, so it my be time to switch brands.
