Happy Monday! Last week turned out to be busier than I had expected, and I felt the need to unwind by spazzing out with some Korean drama, now I am irrecoverably hooked. I have just a few more episodes to go before the finale, so I am bleary-eyed while typing this. But I wanted to make some headway before anymore surprises crop up this week. And to kick the week off, I would like to show you these absolutely adorable limited edition Summer 2016 offerings from Anna Sui!
For Summer 2016, Anna Sui has taken inspiration from a tropical island, with emerald green waters, colorful exotic flora and fauna. There is a handful of limited edition items in the collection, but only a small curated selection will be available in Singapore. I have 2 of the 3 products to show you today.
I love a good lip stain, and there is no better time for some juicy puckers than the summer. Anna Sui releases a brand new range of Lip Stains as part of their Tropical Summer collection, and they come in a handy pocket-sized tube with pretty tropical motives printed on the top. There are 5 shades available, and I have tested 2 of them.
Anna Sui Lip Colour Stain is actually more like a long-lasting lip gloss, as it goes on smoothly and leaves a lightly glossy finish that plumps up fine lines on the lips. The lip stains are not completely opaque at first swipe, but they do build up sufficiently to give a nice coat of color without looking too painted on. They are not sticky on the lips, but they do not set completely, and do come off with eating and drinking. Regardless, they leave behind a light stain of colour which lasts about 4-6 hours.
The shades that I have are:
Because Summer is the season for travel, Anna Sui has thoughtfully prepared a limited edition Hair and Body Kit. Beautifully packaged in a plastic pouch bearing the collection’s decorative illustration, the kit consists of travel-sized shampoo (60ml), conditioner (50gm), and shower foam (60ml). The products are scented with the aroma of refreshing herbs with a touch of musky rose and a tint of citrus. It is suitable for both men and women, which makes this even better for that short romantic getaway!
Anna Sui Lip Colour Stain retails for SGD33, whilst the Hair & Body Kit retails for SGD50. Both are available in Anna Sui counters now.
This post featured products that were kindly provided for my consideration. Regardless, all opinions expressed here are my own honest, unbiased views.
