Vamp lips with Annabelle #AnnabelleXElleCan


I received an unexpected package from Annabelle (thank you, thank you, thank you!) with a bunch of makeup goodies in preparation for the holidays.

Goodies I received from Annabelle:

- Kohl eyeliner in black
- CC colour control instant perfecting base
- Smoothie eye pencil in blubomb
- Le bigshow mascara
- Twist up retractable lipstick crayon in vamp
- Eyeshadow quad in haute mer
- Eyelink liquid eyeliner in black




I've never tried Annabelle's eyeshadow quads and this colour palette isn't something I would particularly get for myself. However, the eyeshadows are surprisingly pigmented. The only eyeshadow that is somewhat chalky is the white matte colour where the other three glide on very smooth.

I would personally use the first three neutral colours on my eyelids and the blue on my bottom lash line. I'm not a fan of wearing blue eyeshadow (bad experience), so I tend to stray away from this colour.

I wrote a blog post about the Instant Perfecting Base which you can find here! :)


L-R: Kohl eyeliner in black, Eyelink liquid eyeliner in black, Smoothie eye pencil in blue, Mascara

The eye khol isn't very long wearing, but the pigmentation and the smoothness of the formula is incredible. I wouldn't wear the product by itself unless I needed to quickly go out and run some errands since it would smudge very easily. Setting this with an eyeshadow would be ideal.

As for the liquid eyeliner, I am in LOVE. I had no idea Annabelle had a liquid eyeliner pen. The tip isn't felt but a sponge to help create that perfect cat eye (picture of me wearing the eyeliner below!)

I wrote a blog post about the smoothie eye pencils and the mascara here and here! :)


This was the first time I've tried the TwistUp line and I'm soooo disappointed in the fact that I wasn't able to purchase the entire set for $24!! If you didn't know, Annabelle had a limited time promotion to purchase all of the colours for $24 however, their website couldn't handle the traffic and I kept receiving errors. If I had to pick three makeup products I couldn't live without, it would be: foundation, eyebrows, and lipstick.

The pigmentation is absolutely amazing. It glides on soo smooth on the lips and the fact that it's a crayon makes application a breeze. The colour I received was "Vamp" which is what I'm wearing below. The longevity of the formula is pretty impressive as well since I pretty much had to scrub the lipstick off my lips to get it all off.

I'm buying more colours!
