Good morning beauties!
If you’re looking for some lash drama this fall, Annabelle Cosmetics (a Canadian drugstore brand) has just launched a collection of mascara to create a wow effect and take your lashes into the stratosphere.
With all the different variations that these mascaras offer (around $10 each), it’s easy to get this fall’s big lash look.
Here’s a quick review of the Annabelle Cosmetics mascara collection (starting in the upper left corner in the photo).
For extra length and definition, the Lash Launcher mascara has a dual length brush. Use the longer row on the brush to separate lashes and get more definition. Use the row with the shorter bristles for bottom lashes or to catch lashes that are harder to reach (like outer lashes).
The lengthening formula in this mascara works well, and doesn’t clump or flake.
The all-in-one Supernova mascara has a combing conical brush that lets you grab each lash for length, definition, and volume. It lifts lashes up from the roots to get a curling effect (it worked nicely on my outer lashes).
Tip: Rather than pumping the wand in and out of the bottle and drying out the mascara faster, Annabelle recommends gently twisting the wand back and forth in a circular motion.
The Blast Off mascara has a curved brushes that lifts lashes up at the roots for a curling effect. To enhance the curl, the formula is designed to lengthen and lift lashes. This mascara is best for lashes that already have a bit of a curl rather than straight lashes.
To use this mascara, Annabelle recommends positioning the wand so that the brush spoons the curve of your lashes. Start from the root, then sweep the wand upward, guiding the shape of the lash as you go. You can get even more definition and fullness, if you wiggle the brush from side to side.
This volumizing mascara (pink tube) works well at separating lashes and coating them with the right amount of mascara. Bigshow mascara has been around for a while and is popular because it has a clump-free brush that adds up to 13x more volume. I’m not sure how lash volume is measured, but I’ll take it. 🙂
The new waterproof version of Bigshow (blue tube) also delivers major volume (with up to 11x more volume) but with a waterproof formula.
To use both versions, hold the brush horizontally across the lashes and pull up using a zig-zag action. Repeat three applications for maximum volume.
This volumizing mascara has a unique twisted brush that grabs lashes and fans them out. It features a volumizing formula, which helps to create a dramatic look for lashes.
To use this mascara, turn the brush while applying the mascara to get separated and defined lashes.
This voluming mascara features an expandable brush that lets you control the amount of volume you want from well-defined to extremely volumized lashes. With this long-lasting mascara, you can get up 12X more voluminous lashes.
To use this mascara, expand the brush for maximum volume or retract for more length and definition.
Overall, I like the clump-free formulas for all of the Annabelle mascaras. My favorites are the Supernova mascara with its combing brush and the Expandable mascara that lets you dial up the volume with a flexible brush.
