What better way to celebrate the launch of new cosmetics then to throw a fabulous party! That’s what Annabelle and Marcelle Cosmetics did last week when they hosted their amazing Beauty Unveiling event in the lofty upper level of Andrew Richards Designs in Toronto. I was graciously invited along with other select beauty bloggers and media to check out all the upcoming launches for the two sister brands while enjoying some glasses of prosecco and a variety of amuse bouche.
There were a lot of amazing products to check out; from skin care to makeup, and even a new amazing cosmetics display that’s sure to please fans of Annabelle Cosmetics. Attendees were further spoiled with a swag bag containing a few of these items which I have been diving into ever since. Here’s a taste of some of the new products that you will be seeing in the upcoming months.
MARCELLE INNOVATION EYESHADOW QUADS
72 shades in 18 quads (9 quad shades + 9 monochromatic quads)
perfume + paraben free
long lasting + excellent colour pay-off
Coming Mid-July 2012
MARCELLE BB CREAM-TO-POWDER
Are you a fan of Marcelle’s original BB Cream? Then check out this new addition to the family! A cream-to-powder version of this amazing complexion product that still stays true to its 8-in-1 multi-benefit formula. This feels weightless on the skin and is sure to please those who have oilier skin or simply prefer the finish of a powder product.
Coming Early July 2012
Marcelle has extended their BB family by adding an Anti-Aging formula for more mature skin types that may need extra attention. Also note that the original Marcelle BB Cream has launched a third shade, in DARK TO DARKER. So all you darker beauties out there, give this one a go. See my review for this foundation here.
