Annabelle Cosmetics Mono Eyeshadow in Goddess

I tend to favour neutral shades such as gold, bronze, brown or copper for eyeshadow, and Annabelle 'Goddess' is one of those gem that have quickly become a staple in my makeup routine since it is the perfect everyday shade, yet it is also stunning for a smokey eye at night!

Finding the perfect golden shade is not always easy - some are too bright, too dull, too orange-y, but not 'Goddess'! It is dark enough to look natural, yet it is super easy to layer for a deeper and more intense look. It always makes my eyes stand out, wether I use it alone or with darker shades and black eyeliner for a smokey eye.

'Goddess' is of amazing quality for a drugstore product - it is super smooth - almost creamy! - it layers and blends super easily, and it is incredibly pigmented - one swipe and I am good to go! I don't have oily lids so I have not experienced fading problems, but I like to always apply a bit of concealer on my lids to neutralize the redness due to eczema, so maybe this helps.

At such an affordable price ($5.95), you are sure to fall in love with 'Goddess' too!

  1. I agree that gold is very, very hard to wear. If it's the wrong shade, it makes me look tired. This is a beautiful gold. Bet it looked great on you.

  2. Gosh, what a pretty shade! Kind of bronze/copperish, love it. :) x

    Živa from Nothin' Fancy. Really.

  4. Very pretty color. I have never seen this brand before. Is it available in the US?
