Anna Sui Cosmetics: Lipstick, Lip Crayon & Gloss

Anna Sui has some of my favorite cosmetic packaging on the market. The beautifully dramatic, colorful boxes always catch my attention and the quality and formulas are usually quite impressive. Today I have a review on a variety of lip products from the brand including a rather unconventional shade of lipstick.

Anna Sui lipstick #850
The first time I saw yellow lipstick look enviously fantastic on someone was in Jennifer Lopez’s music video Live It Up. This shade by Anna Sui is bright, vibrant and quite unique. I will admit that when I first saw it I was a bit flabbergasted and although blue, purple and orange lips are trendy, many still tend to shy away from yellow.

The color looks beautiful in the tube and when swatched it isn't solid but rather transparent and glossy making it easier to pull-off. The lipsticks come in two finishes: Dazzle and Vivid; this shade has a dazzle finish and contains glittery pearls.

The dazzle lipsticks are available in 4 shades and moisturize lips with: rosa fruit, jojoba oil, grape seed oil, sweet almond oil and olive oil. It has a fresh scent, is easy to apply and feels great on the lips.

The glitter fragments beautifully reflect light which make lips look radiant especially outdoors. Although I tend to prefer solid lipsticks I like the texture, formula and quality and since the color appears golden it is wearable. The lipsticks retail for $29.00 and the vivid line is available in 16 shades. 

Anna Sui Lip Crayon #301
Lately I have been using more lip crayons due to ease of application. I like being able to use one product to line and fill in my lips and usually crayon shapes are ideal for this.

The lip crayons by Anna Sui are great! The tapered tip makes shaping and defining simple and application tends to be tidier. The color is opaque and a tad creamy which is comfortable and non-drying. The crayon twists up to reveal concentrated, vivid pigment with a semi-matte finish and the formula contains a light touch of oil and matte powder meant to “promote smooth application and lasting finish.”

#301 is a flashy, bright pink which is a color I can’t get enough of! When I wear it I tend to forget it is even on my lips due to the light texture and long-lasting formula. This is definitely a great crayon and retails for $28.00
Anna Sui Lip Gloss C in shade #401
For gloss lovers Anna Sui also offers a variety of sheer, shimmery lip products. Number 401 is from the Lip Gloss C collection and has a light texture and translucent finish.

Although the gloss is priced in the high-end rage for $28.00 it does make lips look iridescently pretty with radiant shine and a slight tint. The gloss hydrates like a balm with: olive fruit oil, apricot oil, peach extract, grape and rosemary. The scent is quite strong but the texture is smooth and non-sticky making it comfortable and soothing on the lips. Anna Sui Cosmetics can be found at Sephora and you can visit the website HERE

  1. The boxes these lippies come in is too freaking cute! I actually love the looks of that yellow lipstick. I think it'd be great to wear on top of other lipsticks for a golden glow. Thanks for sharing, Erica!

  2. That yellow lipstick almost seems like a gloss in a lipstick form. I am so happy that more and more cosmetic companies are doing lip crayons. I think they are so much easier to work with and great to have when you are on the go. Great review.

  3. Love the packaging!!
    Anna Sui always make adorable products!
    I have never seen cosmetics though I have only seen perfumes I really need to find out where I can find the lipsticks!!
    Love the pink one!
