Annabelle Zebra Bronzer


  As much as I'd love to be, I'm never going to be a bronzed goddess.  Both of my parents and my sister all tan easily but I just burn so I have to avoid the sun and sun tanning booths.  I do use fake tan in the summer (and still look pretty pale with it on!) and during the rest of the year it can be a struggle to find a bronzer that works for me.  Most are way too dark and look orange on my complexion.

  Annabelle is a great Canadian brand that I admittedly often forget about since their stands keep getting smaller and smaller.  I had heard good things about their Zebra Bronzer so I picked it up awhile ago.  I forget how much it was but Annabelle's prices are usually around the same as Revlon & L'Oreal.

  This bronzer has a zebra pattern containing different shades of brown and bronze that mix together when you swirl your brush into the powder.  Annabelle Zebra Bronzer is very soft and silky but sheer enough to work on my fair skin.  It has a slight shimmer to it so I wouldn't use it as a contour product but it looks nice and natural over my cheeks, forehead, and lightly dusted down my nose.  Overall I really love this product and would repurchase it.

Availability: Shoppers Drug Mart, Pharma Plus/Rexall, Wal-Mart (This product is only available in Canada).

  1. This looks really pretty on you. I struggle to find a bronzer I'm happy with but could really do with a bit of colour at the moment! Xx

  3. I've heard of this brand before but can't get it in the US :( boooo

    I love the way it looks on you! I love a good drugstore bronzer, especially when they work just as well!

  4. This looks great on you, and a pale girl finding a good bronzer is a tough one. I have a Almay bronzer I bought like 5 years ago I'm still using because it's just right :) BTW the package leaves tomorrow last chance for requests:)

  5. Looks great on you and the slight shimmer looks nice! Have you tried NYC Sunny Bronzer? It's supposed to be good for all skin tones :0

  6. Oh this looks very pretty on you! I have never really tried many products from Annabelle, my favourite bronzers have to be Nars Laguna & Benefit Hoola
    I tan really easily and I am the odd one out in my family, everybody else burns like a lobster.. go figure!

    1. Thank you :) I haven't tried much from them either but I've liked everything I have tried. Nars Laguna is great but only works for when I have a tan. Haha you're so lucky!
