Annabelle Custom Quad Magnetic Compact

I recently decided to downsize my MAC eyeshadow collection to the few shadows I actually use. I went through a neutral phase where everything I bought for the eyes was neutral, so I had a lot of duplicates. Lately I've come to realize that I have dupes in other, smaller palettes that I prefer to their MAC equivelant.

I went from having 13(!) pans to just 4. Since the nearest MAC store is half an hour away, I decided to go for instant gratification and picked up a magnetic quad from Annabelle.

Annabelle is a Canadian exclusive drugstore brand that just recently came out with a system similar to MAC's pro palettes -- customizable quads with the pans ready to be popped into them. Unlike MAC's system, Annabelle's quads are magnetized, not the eyeshadow pans themselves.

The Annabelle quad is available in a couple of designs, and currently they are only available in Shoppers Drug Mart in Canada. RRP is $4.95, but I paid about $5.75 for mine which is just a few cents less than the MAC ones. They feel heavier and more sturdy though.

If you are in the United States, you can order from Annabelle directly by calling their CS line. More information is available in their FAQ on the official website.

Here's my quad in action next to my MAC 15-pan (which will hopefully be going to a new home!) Eyeshadows pictured are MAC Shroom, Naked Lunch, Satin Taupe, and Brun.

Its so nice to know that another MUA-er feels as if MAC e/s are overrated and easily dupe-able with cheaper versions. i tend to hit up MAC for their more unique shades: Club, Fig 1, Sketch, Top Hat...
If you have the time, I would love to see swatches!

I can do swatches! ;) Didn't think there would be much demand as MAC is so popular. The quad is gorgeous as an EOTD though!
