It’s time for a little Annabelle love on the blog.
Annabelle is one of the brands that was there when I first started experimenting with makeup, so it’s about time the brand makes another appearance.
This is the Annabelle Perfect Cream Highlight in Light Champagne. It comes in stick format in a retractable twist-up tube. It contains 6.2 g of product and is housed in a beige plastic tube with gold accents.
I applied this highlight straight from the tube to my face and then blended it out with my finger.
As with many stick face products I was worried about the product lifting the foundation underneath or streaking when I blended it out, but with some slightly aggressive tapping, I was able to avoid that, although it still took some effort. It’s a pearly golden champagne shade with gold micro glitters that aired more on the side of subtle than intense, although it did look a bit greasy (some people love that look, though).
Although it’s a nice shade, I’m just not the type to use a stick highlight. I prefer to use powder highlights and sometimes liquid highlights just so I have an easier time blending out the product when I inevitably go overboard. It’s available at Canadian drugstores that carry Annabelle, so it’s accessible and affordable, which is always a plus because high-end highlights run a pretty steep price tag. This product would work for someone who prefers a more minimal look with their makeup, as the product blended out easily on fresh skin that had no product underneath.
