Hi Everyone!

If you have been following my twitter, you would probably know that this was part of my haul at Lisa's Cosmetics Warehouse Sale! *yay! They were selling Annabelle and Marcelle products this year along with Smashbox! Anyway, I decided to stock up about 2-3 of each palette from Annabelle as these would make great stocking stuffers and possible beauty swaps! Oh, trust me, I bought way more than this.

Although I'm Canadian, I actually never tried Annabelle Cosmetics. Yes, I'm ashamed of this! Well, here's my chance right? By the way, I haven't seen these around before! Have you? If so, please let me know in the comments. I have contacted Annabelle Cosmetics hoping they will be able to provide me with some info.  =) So, be sure to stick around for updates!

The ladies at the sales told me that these retailed at $13.95 CAD in stores! I find these palettes extremely unique! The collection comes in 4 eyeshadows or 4 eyeshadows plus bronzer. The palette comes in a Tin Box along with a Mirror and a Sponge Applicator. It's very convenient and I noticed that even if I drop this palette, the eyeshadows would not break because of the foam surrounding it. Lastly, I think that Tin Boxes is such an eco-friendly idea as I can think of many D.I.Y ideas when I'm finished with the product!
UPDATED (NOV 24TH, 2010): I have asked Annabelle Cosmetics whether these eyeshadows are still safe to use since some are dated back to 2007. I told them that I had just purchased these from Lisa's Cosmetics Warehouse Sale and I know some of my friends has been asking for them. I didn't want to give them out if they have expired. Moreover, I didn't know that Lisa's Cosmetics carried items which were dated back to 2007. (Really?!)

This is their reply:
Annabelle® products do not have an expiry date. Our products have a shelf life of approximately 36 months (3 years). The shelf life is established understanding that the products are preserved in the best possible conditions; i.e. in a cool and dry place, away from any source of heat or humidity, and without any sunlight or direct light exposure. Once a product has been opened, the freshness of the product will gradually diminish and this, no matter which brand products you may purchase from.


Any colour cosmetic product should be discarded 12 months following its first usage. Mascaras should be thrown out after 3 months of usage. Of course, any colour cosmetic product which may have been used during a time of infection (cold sore, blister, conjunctivitis, pink eye, etc.) should be replaced immediately.
With that, I'm glad because I didn't just purchase x amount on nothing. I guess I will still use them as party stuffers for the holidays. To be honest, I really liked these because the packaging is very multipurpose and these shades are very wearable!
