Let me show you the world in my eyes: Anna Sui Fall 2011 Makeup Collection
A preview by Jessica M
I’ve mentioned before, here and on Now Smell This, that I’m a devoted admirer of Anna Sui’s fashion and her overall style, including her fragrance and cosmetics lines. I attended a party at the flagship Anna Sui boutique during Fashion Week last month, and I promised Annie a post about it; my non-blogging life has been busier than usual this fall, so I’m a little late, but I’m finally ready to share what I saw and learned.
This party was planned to preview the Anna Sui cosmetics collection for Fall 2011, which definitely emphasizes the eyes. The collection includes four new color cosmetics products: Colored Lash Amplifying Mascara in three shades (black, hot pink, and bright blue, for $28), an Eyebrow Color Compact palette in a range of three browns ($28), Perfect Mascara in black ($28), and vivid and sparkly Eyeliner Pencils in five shades ($19). There are also three limited edition decorative compacts for powder foundations ($15).
I’m planning a return visit to the boutique to pick up some of the cosmetics soon. I’d like to own one or two of the eyeliners, possibly the Neon Green (really more olive than neon) and Pearl Bronze shades, as well as one of the “Elegant” green-and-white powder compact.
I’ll also be keeping an eye out for the repackaged nail polish line. Its bottles are shaped like dressmaking forms wearing party dresses. So clever! The new shades will range from shimmery nudes to rich purple and glittery green, so there’s something for everyone.
