Annabelle Cosmetics (Amazon Trio + Hydropolis Collection)

Annabelle Cosmetics is a brand that is found in Canada. The products that I've tried from this brand are the eyeshadow trio in Amazon & the Kohl eyeliner in Black. The eyeliner comes off very easily & it's staying power isn't good. When applied on the waterline, it comes off in 5 minutes or so. I haven't had much luck with the eyeshadow trio either. The colours (especially the green) look nice, but they aren't pigmneted at all, which was a bit disappointing. I have some swatches below & a size comparison to a MAC eyeshadow & a penny as well.

If you think the colours hardly show up, let me tell you that I swatched generously.

My mum has a few of their lip liners & she likes them. Even though I haven't had a great experience with this brand, I have to say that I haven't tried any other products by them.

Recently I was walking through the cosmetics aisle & usually I would continue walking while passing this brand, but something caught my eye. It was a new display with the brand's Summer 2009 collection called Hydropolis. The 2 eyeshadows that were on display were Aquatech & Amber Wave & I was immediately attracted toward Aquatech because I love greens & blues. They're perfect for the season too.

What do you think of the eyeshadow colours? Which one do you like the best from the pic & are most likely to buy?

Click here to visit the Annabelle Cosmetics website & view their Hydropolis Collection. They even have 3 face charts.

So, what's your verdict on Annabelle Cosmetics? Have you tried anything from this brand or the Hydropolis collection? How do you like their new collection just by looking at it? Let me know.
