Annabelle Cosmetics - Chrome Single Eyeshadow
The claims on these shadows:
An exceptional creamy texture for either a hint of shimmer or a bold metallic finish: you choose!
- Striking metallic foil finish
- 1st chrome eyeshadow in the mass market!
- Soft, creamy texture
- Buildable and long-lasting formula
Animal Testing? No.
Vegan? No. (see ingredients below)
These shadows are really pretty, especially in person. They're quite creamy, but easy to work with. They're texture makes them great for a sheer wash of colour, but you can also build up thin layers for a more opaque look. They're really quite versatile, which is a nice feature of these shadows.
The only minor complaint that I might have, is their $8.95 CAD price tag. For one shadow, (each containing 2g of product), it's kind of steep, in my opinion. However, Annabelle products tend to go on sale in stores fairly often, so you might be able to snag these for a cheaper price at some point, if they appeal to you. Either way, even at their full price, I really do like these shadows and I have no regrets purchasing them. I'm hoping that Annabelle might consider releasing additional colours...maybe some more warmer tones, a really warm brown, a deep crimson/red shade, maybe an orange...there's so many colours and undertones that they could add to this collection. It'd be awesome!
I found these at my local London Drugs store. The same day, I was in Shoppers Drug Mart, as well as the Superstore and I did not see them on display at those stores. At least not yet. If you can't find them locally, at the moment, you can always find them online on Annabelle's website.
Have you tried out Annabelle's Chrome eyeshadows? What did you think of them? I'd love to hear your thoughts!
