Painted Love

Annabelle's newest release for Spring is the Painted Love collection:



The promo image is very pastel and fitting for spring. In fact the colours on the model remind me of the China Glaze Up and Away nailpolishes!

The new releases are 4 new single eyeshadows in Helium, Pinked, Toxic Garden and Nymphet. Thanks to Annabelle I was provided with the 4 colours to swatch and test out. Here are the closeups:

Swatches:
Annabelle

Pinked - reddish pink, very fine shimmer
Helium - beige champagne, shimmer is a bit less fine than the others
Toxic Garden - light olive with gold tinged shimmer
Nymphet - pastel mint, with a slight sheen. It looks like a eyeshadow version of China Glaze Re-fresh Mint!


Here they are arranged in the custom Annabelle quad (sold separately):

The Annabelle website also features another take on these colours - the Remix look:



Its more wearable than the promo, and the winged liner is gorgeous! However I still think the original promo is much more memorable :)

If you are like me and love checking out multiple reviews here are some that I've spotted around the web:

Rae @ The Notice (gorgeous swatches girl!)

I used Nyx Jumbo in Yellow. I hardly have a tru use for it, so I used it for the base on these guys. worked pretty well because it is bright to start off with :)

I was kinda sad that the balmshell logo wasnt on the other two as well. Was the first thing I noticed :( but I guess its one of the reasons why it is being discontinued? *shrug*
