For fall 2014, Anna Sui revamped some of their lip and cheek products, namely the lipsticks, lip glosses and blushes.

For fall, Anna Sui introduced two new lip gloss formulas – the Protective Lip Gloss ($28) and the Glittering Lip Gloss ($28). The Protective Lip Gloss is a creamy, non-shimmery lip gloss that is ultra moisturizing and delivers brilliant colour and shine. The plush lip gloss formula is also touted to create a lip plumping effect, without the tingly peppermint feel. It is available in 9 shades and are housed in a beautiful white lacquer tube with a toe-foot applicator. The shade I have is 200, which is a sheer plum that just slightly darkens the natural colour of my lips.

The Glittering Lip Gloss, available in 12 shades, is a sheer lip gloss that is abundant in pearl shimmer. The shade I have is 300, which is baby pink shimmer suspended in a clear base. While I’m not a huge fan of the shimmer as an all-over wash of gloss, I love using this just as a dab of colour in the centre of my lips, either on top of another lip gloss or on top of a lipstick. It helps to create plumper, and more youthful looking lips.

The product I was most looking forward to was their new Lipsticks ($29), which are now made in the shape of stars and housed in a crystal cut-like tube. Along with the permanent range which has been repackaged, the Lipstick M (M for marble) is a new formula which is two different colours marbled together to create a different colour with each application. The shade I have is 371, which is a glossy mauve-pink shade. As with all Anna Sui lipsticks, these Lipstick Ms are also super moisturizing due to the inclusion of several moisturizing oils in the formula, such as olive fruit oil, grape seed oil, rose fruit oil, et cetera. The lipsticks also smell like roses still, which I absolutely love. At first I was a bit wary of how the star shaped bullet would affect application, but it’s actually not that bad since the tips of the star helps to create a more refined line around your lips; the rest is just fill in. If you’re a fan of moisturizing, rose-scented lipsticks, these are for you!

The Rose Cheek Colour ($36), Anna Sui’s line of blushes, has also been repackaged to the same beautiful crystal cut-like casing as the Lipsticks. Anna’s Rose Cheek Colours are a blend of four distinct blush shades, swirled together to create a multidimensional blush shade that is perfect for every day wear. The shade I have is 301, which is made up of matte pinks, an orange, and a shimmery pink to create a coral shade with subtle shimmer. The texture of the blush is super smooth and adheres well to the skin. As with all of Anna’s products, the Rose Cheek Colour is also rose scented, and is available in 6 shades for fall, with two new shades – 303 and 602.
