Well like most people, the thing that i liked about Anna sui products was the packaging (also i really like how some are rose scented, though it's not the best thing for my sensitive skin). I have the eyeshadow in a limited edition, it has gold, green, light blue, and dark blue in a checkered pattern and came with a brush. It gets lippies for being so tightly pressed. I dropped it a couple of times and it has never broke. However the eyeshadow creases and that is a very rare problem for me even for really cheap eyeshadows. The staying power was a let down.
As of all Anna Sui products, they're so very packed and in those vintage gothic little pots that I can't resist to buy! I bought those trio eyeshadows that are supposely limited editions. Even the eyeshadow has the rose smell like other Anna Sui products. The color is somehow very light. Easily removed. I would say that if not for the packaging I would not buy it.
I have Anna Sui Eye Color #302 (a sort of shimmery pink), which has a gorgeous rose pattern on the color itsel, and smells deliciously of roses. I've had it for close to year and the smell has not worn off or grown funky, and despite using it everyday I still have about half left. It has an amazingly smooth silky texture which blends perfectly when blended on with fingers. I use it as a blush mostly because it brings PERFECT rosiness to the cheeks, and at the same time its hightlighting properties makes cheekbones gleam without being unnatural. Use it all over your face to highlight your bone structure. Definitely a re-buy!
I LOVE the fragrance in anna sui's eyeshadow, smells like roses. Initially I bought it for this reason, but the shadows have other pros too, like nice fine shimmer, lasting power and great wearable colours. I also LOVE the packaging. I must admit I am in lust with anna sui's products, this eyeshadow is really nice but quite honestly it is very similar to others out ther (MAC, Napoleon) The fragrance did not irritate my sensitive skin however and the rose scent make me swoon... *faint*
I have this in two color, #217 (light lavender) and #400 (dark rose).
I didn't really like #400, I liked how it was pigmented, but it was SO pigmented it stained my bathroom counter! And if I didn't like how it was, it took forever to remove, even with eye m/u remover. But a plus to this was that it lasted all day, even when I went swimming - amazing!!
But I loved #217. It was the perfect pigment, and works perfectly with my smokey purple eye. Nice quality e/s. I might purchase this color again in the future.
i got this in #04, a limited edition of color that look like a marble swirl in the pot .... the color is really nice .... staying power is ok ... i am bias to Anna Sui's product ... i bascially love every single product from Sui ... because i am addicted to the rosy scent and pretty pacakaging .... hahaha
I have color #101. I love this color and the pigment is great. These shadows may be more expensive, but it's worth it, because there is a lot there and you don't have to use as much to get the amount of color you want. I like the rose fragrance and it doesn't bother my sensitive eyes. I wish they were named instead of numbered, but other than that these shadows are wonderful! The packaging is very ornate looking,too.
This is a realy nice eyeshadow with a beautiful rose scent that doesnt irritate my sensitive eyes.. it has good staying power and the colors are very pretty! i have #101 (bluey green) and it is worth the price for the amount of product it has.
I am very impressed by these eye shadows! I have #301(a shimmery barely there pink), #203(a soft shimmery lilac), #209(a shimmery medium toned purpled taupe), and #306(a MAC Paradisco look a like; shimmery peach). All of these go on VERY pigmented, smooth and last just as long as any other high end shadows but these smell of powdery roses! I will definatly buy a lot more of these and it goes without saying that I highly recommend these.
i'm actually a newbie to this cosmetics line =) I usually use MAC or UD stuff.. a friend of mine introduced me to anna sui, so i though i'd try her stuff out.....I love the packaging and unlike some people i actually like that the eye shadow is lightly scented!!.. it's very unique....great staying power and it's sooo silky and smooth!!!love the texture,quality, and everything about anna sui's e/s!!
