On the 7th of January, Anna Sui Cosmetics released their 2010 Spring Point Makeup Collection. The collection included new lip colors, nail polishes and limited edition eyeshadow palettes. I purchased the new Lip Rouge G (Glossy) in 200 and the Eye Color Accent F in 01. Lip Rouge G is a lipstick that emulates the smooth texture and shine of a gloss. It is so moisturizing that you could wear it over dry lips without applying a lip jelly or cream to soften your lips first. Though 200 is a purple shade, Lip Rouge is extremely sheer and only gives the slightest purple tint to the lips, which makes it a rather disappointing lip color. I think it would be more appropriate to describe Lip Rouge G as a glossy lip treatment like Lipstick Queen's Medieval than an actual lipstick. In fact, it is quite similar to Medieval except that Lip Rouge G is creamier, shinier and heavily scented. 2,940 yen (including tax).
The limited edition Eye Color Accent F in 01 is less disappointing. All of the shades are quite soft and blend well into the skin. Both the lavender-white and pink highlighting shadows have a pearly shine while the black shadow is matte and the green sparkles with white shimmer. The eye shadows are fairly pigmented and can be used to produce some colorful looks. So far, I have used the shadows with The Body Shop's Metallic Eye Definer in 11 for a brilliant green look. I do wish that quad was larger and not scented but I am otherwise fairly satisfied with my purchase. One Eye Color Accent F costs 2,625 yen (including tax).
Till the end of the month, cosmetic purchases at a limited number of Anna Sui boutiques totaling over 5,250 yen come with an original Anna Sui clear purple pouch. The quality of the pouch is quite similar to that of a promotional item (furoku) in a fashion or beauty magazine.
