Marcelle and Annabelle Cosmetics recently held the Beauty Unveiling event at the beautiful and trendy Andrew Richards design loft in Toronto. I had a chance to check out their new products for Autumn 2012!
A short video for you explaining my ‘absence’ and some products/places I am excited to write about!
Firstly, a picture that makes me smile:
The above is what has kept me quite busy for the past month or so….
And now, the video!
I think the universe gets more than a good giggle when it looks at my eyebrows. They have NEVER been “right” in my eyes.
Over the years I have many many people pluck, tweeze, wax, and thread them into shape….but they have never quite achieved perfection to me. I have an assortment of tools to help them out:
Unfortunately these tools only work if I USE THEM (*lightbulb*)
Okay so while I WILL leave the shaping to the professionals, I have stumbled upon a product that has helped me on my journey to brow perfection!
Enter Annabelle Skinny Brow liner-an extra precise, retractable AND waterproof brow liner (waterproof? I would never even bother to check if a brow product was waterproof). Let’s take a peek at this:
On one end, there’s product. Enough said right? Well I will mention, this pencil is extremely smooth and soft enough to let you create/fill in those brows but not so tough that your grinding and pulling it along your forehead. I know we have all had that old school eyebrow pencil we love to hate-ADMIT IT!
It’s the other end that really got me interested in this product….check out this pink comb:
I LOVE this because it’s graduated. So I don’t have to reposition or turn the brush-it’s in the perfect spot the entire time. And
that’s it. A couple of quick strokes and I look like I’m born with beautiful brows!
Simply put, the brush has made me love this product!
P.S. Skinny Brow liner comes in Universal Light, Universal Medium, and Universal Dark shades.
What’s the deal with your brows? How do you keep them in tip top shape?
I have been seeing a lot of bloggers posting about their 2011 favorites! There are so many great posts I’ve had to start a list of products that I want to check out. I want to express my appreciation for the time it takes beauty bloggers to write posts-especially reviews and tutorials. I know that an incredible amount of work goes into making videos and posting reviews. I am so glad to know you and truly value your opinions/advice. I don’t buy ANY beauty products without checking out what bloggers have to say about them! It’s the only way!
I am a huge fan of lash extensions (and have talked about them several times on my blog) so I haven’t been using mascara since…..well probably July. However, I have decided to let me lashes “rest” for a month or two and have gone back to using mascara.
So I am SURE you have read a lot of posts about the Annabelle/Marcelle Beauty Premiere event held at the Thompson Hotel in Toronto. I was fortunate enough to be invited to this event (Thank you Miss Isabel P) and it was one of THE events to attend for Toronto’s beauty bloggers!
I have been having a spectacular week!
I’ve said it before and I will say it again….I am NOT a MUA. I don’t have the skills, the education, the training or the technique. But darn it, I certainly try! The majority of the time that I have an event to attend that requires more dramatic makeup, I enlist the services of a professional. It’s just the ‘right’ thing to do.
To be honest, I haven’t been overly enthusiastic about some of the Fall/Winter collections I have seen in stores and at counters lately.
