Anna Sui Autumn 2018 : Cheeks
So, the final Anna Sui Autumn post! This time it’s all about cheeks and complexion, starting with the Face Colours. Now, you might wonder what the heck you do with these (I know I do!) but think of them as powders (like Les Meteorites) that enliven your tone. I know this looks very bright but if you whisper a brush over it you won’t see the individual colours, more just a nuance of energy. Used at a higher intensity, you can use it for light eye colours or finger dabs on cheeks.
I made a lovely pink-eye look with the brighter one and dabbed my cheeks with the lighter rose – turns out to be quite a handy compact to keep in your bag. There are two shades, and they’re both limited edition – don’t forget you need to already have the case for this or also get one if you want it to be portable. They’re HERE for £18 (cases are £8).
Next up, the Creamy Cheek Colours, in little butterfly pots with a sponge to apply.
As you can see, I’ve dipped into all of them (I took pictures of everything in pristine condition before testing without realising my camera card was full). The cream texture ends up as a powder finish. I love the little stamping sponge that yes, would give you ‘dolly’ cheeks if that was something you wanted, but for the rest of us whose doll days are over, they’re not great at blending. The pigments are pretty lively in these so you don’t over-do it.
I swatched using the tiniest amount – they do last though: the red shade stayed on my cheeks all day. They haven’t hit Beauty Bay yet so I can’t give you a price.
Lastly, this year’s most desirable brush! Isn’t it great? Anna Sui is one of the few brands that really makes a big effort to have the accessories in keeping with the collection.
