Last Thursday was pretty awesome, I got to check out the spring 2012 launch of the new Annabelle & Marcelle products.
Even though they’re an entry-level brand, I still like these products. They give great value for what you pay and they also don’t cost an arm and a leg! I also like that they’re Canadian.
It was definitely a fun night for me. Working from home now I am dying to get out of the house, and also to get dressed up. This event was a great opportunity for me to do both, and showcase one of the new crystal pieces from With Heart.
I met some other cool beauty & lifestyle bloggers and also got a chance to chat with Isabel from Groupe Marcelle who is SO CUTE in person!
I think the coolest part of the night was the design your own lipgloss bar that Annabelle brought in.
Stocked with pigments, lab tech and assistant, everyone there was able to select their own pigments and have their very own custom shade of Big Show lipgloss (coming Spring 2012) created right in front of them!
After creating my lipgloss, I browsed the new products (A BB Cream and cool new mascara were my faves!) sampled some nibbles and helped myself to the tray of freebies going around. What an awesome idea! They had a server going around with a tray filled with lipsticks, shadows, liners and more and we were all able to select what we wanted to take home with us. My friends are going to be thrilled!
Upon leaving we were also given a lovely gift bag filled with more samples. I am really enjoying the Hydra-C 24H Energizing Hydrating Gel and the Soothing Cleansing Water (it removes my makeup, doesn’t need rinsing and doesn’t irritate my eyes!).
At the end of the night I had a pretty good haul:
The only thing I wish I could have gotten my hands on? The new BB Cream. It sounds awesome!
Thanks for a great night, Groupe Marcelle!
