So with my previous post on my Anastasia Beverly Hills purchases, I had also got a few additional Anna Sui products with my purchase from Urban Outfitters 😀 during that time the site offered $50 off when you spend over $150 so I took advantage of that deal hehe
(wearing the Anna Sui lip crayon in #302 Coral Pink and Anastasia Brow Wiz in Soft Brown)
I have chosen, the limited edition lip crayon, blotting paper + case and a gorgeous makeup tray 🙂 All items arrived safely in the mail and in under 2 weeks hehe
If you have seen my first Anna Sui goodies post, I love their accessories like the brush stand, mirror and beauty tray! I was so excited when I saw they had a gorgeous brushed gold metal makeup tray!!!!!! Of course I had to get my paws on it hehe
It measures 20cm x 15cm which is a little small but the design makes up for it hehe 🙂 like it says on the back of the box, this tray is heavy since it is made of metal so it’s very sturdy which is great!!!
For $28, it’s a little pricey for a makeup tray but I think this is perfect for anyone who loves to collect pretty things or loves Anna Sui 😀 you can see the amazing details close up!!! The design seems to be inspired by vintage and baroque items.
The tray incorporates the iconic Anna Sui roses and butterflies 🙂 the gold just makes it that more luxurious to display on your vanity table hehe
The back of the tray is smooth so it sits perfectly flat!
It also has a short well so your cosmetics or other products can sit in the tray 🙂
As for the limited edition Lip Crayon, it comes in 3 different shades, a rose pink, nude beige, and I chosen the coral pink #302! Since it’s limited edition, the Anna Sui logo and roses on the packaging is coloured in pink while the original editions are all black! Can we just take a moment to appreciate the lid of this product!? it’s so dainty and beautiful!! I love the rose sitting on top 🙂
For $23 you get 1.3g of product which isn’t much!! It’s a semi-matte lipstick in a crayon pen form! You twist the bottom and product comes out and you won’t need to sharpen it! It also smells like roses which I loooooove since most of her products incorporates a rose scent hehe
You can see that this shade has a little shimmer into it and the coral pink is slightly bright too! the coverage is opaque and if you have dry lips it may be drying for you so make sure you prep your lips with lip balm first! The lasting power is around 3-4 hours depending if you use a lip pencil or if you drink/eat etc! When I wear it, it looks like a nude shade against my skin tone if you refer back to the first picture in this post 🙂
I never tried blotting paper before since I’ve only ever used the MAC Blotting powder in a compact form! After trying this I still prefer to use a powder or blotting powder to take out the shine on my face haha
For $25, you get the case and the blotting papers 🙂 which is a good deal since I can re-use this case to store other small things hehe
The packaging again is amazing!!!! Anna Sui never lets me down in that department! So you see the iconic dainty rose pattern and logo adorned outside and inside the case! For the blotting paper, you just slide it into the slot and it sits securely 🙂
The case is made out of plastic but it’s sturdy and doesn’t feel cheap and it’s coated in a glossy black just like all her other items! There’s a small mirror under the lid so you can use it while blotting!
If you finish the blotting papers, you can purchase refills! It’s so handy so you can always re-use the case 🙂 Even the packaging for the blotting papers is gorgeous hehe
The blotting paper itself is decorated with the Anna Sui logo and butterflies!!!! It’s in a light purple shade 🙂
What you do with the blotting paper is that you use the matte side of the paper and press it on your face or any area that is shiny or more oily! The paper then absorbs that shine and keeps that area matte without ruining your makeup 🙂
So if you haven’t tried Anna Sui or Anastasia products, give it a go or browse on the Urban Outfitters website!!! It’s one of my fav places to shop at for beauty, home decor, books or clothes! 🙂
