Annabelle has the feminine, soft, elegant, classy touch!

I love the Annabelle palette. It is full of sexy pigments and the overall design component of this product is beautiful. I do not like the chalkiness of the eye shadows, as well as the far from fabulous ingredients. For this reason, I am giving this product three stars.

Use

The Annabelle "Bella In Bloom" palette from "Bella Il Fiore" each has an applicator and 8 eyeshadow colors (One matter and 7 shimmers). They are reminiscent of drugstore cosmetics but these palettes are perfect for gifting, stocking stuffers, and beginners. I do not like the ingredients listed and for the price, there should be better ingredients. It is very compact and great for traveling. Most of the colors fade away after a short while and the shimmery hues do not shimmer as much as I'd expected.

Product Specifications:
Length: 4"
Width: 3 1/8"
Depth: 0.25"
Weight: approx .15 oz

Every circle of color:
Diameter: 5/8"
Depth: 1/8"

Brush applicator length (approx): 3"

Texture / Consistency / Thickness / Viscosity

This palette is very chalky, thin, and powdery. Every palette has one matte color and the rest are glittery/shimmery. Eye shadow primer is recommended so that the eye shadow can stay on even longer. I use the white hues as highlighters and the rest of the colors as shadows.
    • Smooth

Taste / Aroma

I did not bother to taste EYE shadow- and I hope that it never makes it to your mouth as well. Also, I did not sense a smell to the palette (aside from the powdery, cosmetic smell that you smell with most of these kinds of cosmetic brands). You can't really smell this aroma when you are wearing it, just upon application.

Performance

Although I had to reapply quite often, and the shadows felt chalky, I still loved the product. The hues were very sexy and I loved the glimmering aspect of the palette (with the exception of the one matte color, Lilac).

Hues *(s)=shimmery and (m)= matte:

Periwinkle(s) is a light purple with what appears to be rainbow microglitter.
Lavender(s) is like periwinkle, but lighter. It appears white so I use it as a highlighter for my brow bone.
Hyacinth(s) is a burgundy with red microglitter.
Lilac(m) is a purple the color of a grape.
Lily(s) is almost like a white highlight.
Daffodil(s) is a light Pepto Bismol/cotton candy pink with rainbow microglitter.
Autumn(s) is a light brown, almost copper color with rainbow microglitter.
Bliss(s) is a sexy grey with rainbow microglitter.
    • Reapply often

The palette is packaged in a clear wrapping. You free that foil from the product and your shadows await you. The front of the package gives you an insight on the product name and contents. The back lists the ingredients.

Follow-up commentary
I feel the exact same way about this palette as I did the first time I tried it. It feels a bit chalky, and feels a little cheap at times but I love the variety and the design of the palette. Definitely a way to go for gifting purposes.
