Annabelle LE Custom Quad

So a while back I posted about my haul from Shoppers and I was really excited to bring this LE quad home =) They had another quad too but I bought this one instead. The green just pulled me in. ahaha You can see the other one here I'm surprised they didn't have names for them. I'll just have to make one up: Tropical Getaway? It was about $15.99CAD which isn't bad for a quad that has 4 eyeshadows and the case. I was just a little disappointed that the colours weren't as bright ast they seem. Some were pigmented but some rarely show. Texture vary from shadow to shadow as well as the amount of fall out. (blogger keeps flippin my photos. not cool)

Laguna: vibrant sea blue. satin finish. represents the sparkling waters, the pretty sky..
This one has great pigmentation. And when you put it on, the colour actually shows without having to keep layering it. The satin finish is quite nice. Not too shimmery but not at all matte. I'll be comparing this to Nymphet (another LE Annabelle Mono Shadow). Fallout is minimal. well, at least i can handle it =P It's also very smooth and velvety to touch.
Martian: light forest olive green. The shadow itself is matte but has fine shimmer shimmer. represents the lush green leaves of the coconut trees...
I was a little saddened that it didn't show up well. It's the type that has to be layered on to get the colour out of the pan. Texture is a little harder than Laguna and when you swatch it, the effect is almost like a stain. in a way ~_~ not that great... and it was the colour that got me into buying this too! arghhhh fallout is obvious probably due to the "staining" quality.
Funburst: olive gold with chunks of gold shimmer. the finish is kinda like Martian. matte but with shimmer. represents the warmth of the golden sun rays....
Meh. yes meh. just like whatever. not a shade that I really care about. I mean it's a nice beige gold but nothing that has that WOW! factor. get what I'm sayin'? Texture is really powdery and fallout is worst then Martian. It. Gets. barely shows on my skin..kinda just blends...
Misted Up: velvet silver. smooth satin finish. ahhhh so smooth. represents the silver moonlight in the night.
Now if every make up fanatic must have a silver eyeshadow in their collection, like if it's a law, then u NEED this. The pigmentation is heavenly and the texture. OH-SO-SMOOTH!!!! It's like eating really creamy ice cream (dont put it into your mouth ladies >.<>

I decided to compare Laguna to Nymphet because their pigmentation varies greatly. Nymphet barely shows while Laguna is just WOWZA! Finger swatches, they look equally pigmented. Once transferred onto the skin, you can see the obvious difference. That's all folks! Ciao~!
