Annabelle Cosmetics, a Canadian makeup brand based in Montreal. I actually bought quite a few items from Annabelle when I was back in high school, I still have those two cute jars of loose pigments in my stash.
To be honest, I haven't experimented much with drugstore shadows and liners for quite a few years now so I was quite shocked by how incredibly pigmented and high quality the Annabelle Eyeshadow Quad ($8.95) and Retractable Eyeliners ($7.95) are!

Annabelle Eyeshadow Quad in "Chai chai chai":
This lovely quad features four very wearable warm neutrals. "Cream" is a beautiful warm gold and "Gold" ironically is copper. "Bronze" and "Brown" are the two darker metallics.
All four of these shadows are incredibly buttery and pigmented, the formula is very much on par, if not identical, with that of high end brands like Urban Decay and Too Faced.

I honestly have never had any luck with drugstore pencil liners before but these retractable liners are quite good. There was minimal dragging and the pigmentation is really great as well. They are fairly smudge proof except when I wore them on my tight line. "Jet Black" is a simple basic black and "Chocochip" is a dark chocolate brown. How cute of a name is "Chocochip"?

That's all for today, I'll come back with a manicure look tomorrow, thanks for dropping by!
