REVIEW: Annabelle Leopard Bronzer in "Jungle Belle"

i love Shoppers and i especially love their Clearout section. 
i picked up this Annabelle bronzer along with a lipgloss on clearance for $2. how can you say no to a pretty leopard bronzer at such a pretty price?

so this Annabelle Leopard Bronzer in "Jungle Belle" (13 g) was actually released with last year's Jungle Belle Summer 2011 collection. Annabelle does not have this Leopard one anymore but don't fret because they have a Zebra version (in Haute Gold)! 

swatching this bronzer was hard work! i tried to swatch the three different colors (peach, pink, brown) separately and then all together to show you a better idea of the colors. but the color was extremely difficult to pick up with my finger. the pigmentation was poor - it took more than 5 swipes each to get some color payoff on my arm. the peach in particular can hardly be seen. i find that it actually shows a tad better on my cheeks (using a brush) but then again, i don't really need my bronzer to be that dark on my cheeks. there is also a slight shimmer and i like how the colors look mixed together.

overall, i was not too impressed with this product. i'd give it points for the cute packaging though... 
have you fallen for the packaging before? do you own any Annabelle bronzers and if so, do you think they have improved?

  1. I have seen a product very similar to this in an Australian brand :) I can't find much use for bronzers with shimmer sadly.

  4. Your Shoppers clearout section is way better than mine. There is never really any good makeup in mine :( Too bad the quality of the bronzer didn't match the packaging. That's always disappointing :( At least you're only out a twooney!

    1. i frequent a number of Shoppers just because the clearout section vary so much from store to store! last time i visited one with a Beauty Boutique, they actually had a separate "Clearout" section. but that was only the one store so it really depends!

  5. I would have picked that up too... I'm a sucker for anything animal print. To bad the bronzer isn't as pretty as it's packaging!
