Annabelle Minerals and Lip Plumping Gloss
You all know how much I support the Annabelle cosmetics line. I have been using their products for years now and they have always been a staple for me. I was so excited when I was sent some goodies from the Mineral Collection as well as 2 shades of the Lip Plumping Gloss to try out.
I will start with my thoughts on the mineral collections. I was sent a foundation, blush as well as bronzer to try. I first used the blush and bronzer after getting my package. The blush was a beautiful pink colour which I really think is a tone that suits most of the population. I really liked this blush as it wasn't as shimmery as many mineral blushes can tend to be. It blended into the skin beautifully and such a little goes so far that this blush will last you forever!
The bronzer was a win for me as well. It comes in one shade and it worked beautifully on my pale skin. I have also used it on a client with my darker skin then me and it also worked well on her giving her a radiant glow without a glittery appearance. Again a little goes a long way with this product so the key is really starting with very little product.
The foundation is said to be 'a super light foundation that provides just the right amount of coverage. Its natural and pure formulation lets skin breathe'. This foundation is much lighter then other mineral foundations on the market, but it does still give a reasonable coverage. If you have a lot of skin issues such as acne, this may not be enough coverage for you, but for the average women who's skin has minimal discolouration to cover, I really think this is a great option.
Lastly is the Lip Plumping Gloss, which I received in Cherryoke and Sweet Tweet. Now it did take me a little while to get the knack of getting the gloss to come out of the tube (no idea what my issue was... haha) but once I did I really liked these glosses. Sweet Tweet is my fave as I love light pink shades of gloss and I simply love the way it looks on the lips. This gloss is very moisturizing which really did make my lips appear fuller. My lips are extremely dry so the moisture gives a fuller appearance for sure.
I really liked all of the products so again Annabelle did not disappoint!! If you love this line just as I do, be sure to check out these new additions next time you are shopping!
