Beauty Feature: Annabelle Studio Pigment Give Away!

We at Makeup Junkie love quality products for a steal and we know our readers do too! Canadian cosmetic giant, Annabelle Cosmetics, will be launching the line's new Studio Pigments ($8.50 CDN) August 16 exclusively at Shoppers Drug Mart! If you love to express yourself using bright bold shades then you'll love these pigments. Recommended by the Makeup Artists in the Annabelle Studio, these pro performance loose powders are highly concentrated and super pigmented. Their incredibly ultra fine texture make these powders easy to blend together.

Available in 6 shades: Karma, Cobalt, Dragonette, Greed, LOL, and Magentini

Top Row L-R: Magentini, Karma, LOL
Bottom Row L-R: Dragonette, Greed, and Cobalt
The above image is a swatch of the powders dry. You can see they are still highly pigmented when used dry. The colours are beautiful and bold and all compliment each other nicely. You can create many different looks or use one shadow for a sheer wash of colour and use another shade wet as a liner! Use Annabelle's A-8 small shading brush and press onto the lid rather than back and forth. This will prevent any fall-off onto your cheek and help the colour go on a little bit heavier. Wet the A-14 angled liner brush, mix with the powder and line your lash.
Top Row L-R: Magentini, Karma, LOL
Bottom Row L-R: Dragonette, Greed, and Cobalt
The above image is a swatch of the powders used wet. The colours have double the intensity and are very long-wearing when used wet. The packaging is an excellent design. The powders are enclosed in a snap closure container that makes these pigments mess-free and transportable. When you open the container there is a small hole the size of a pea where the colour comes out of. These pigments definitely stand up to the quality of M.A.C.'s Pigment Powders but at a fraction of the cost! Hopefully Annabelle will add more shades to the line!

Now that we've gushed all about Annabelle's fabulous Studio Pigments, Makeup Junkie will give one lucky reader (Canadian residents only - sorry!) all 6 Studio Pigments plus A-8 and A-14 brushes! All you have to do is email us telling us you absolutely have to have this prize! Click on "Contact Us and Product Submissions" for our email address. Winner will be announced next Monday, August 17th, at 12 pm!
