I have a couple limited edition items from the Anna Sui Summer 2014 Collection to share with you today. These products are beautifully packaged and are real display pieces.
The Anna Sui Limited Loose Powder Compact ($45 CAD) in Apricot Pink is housed in a girly, fun, and opalescent compact. You secure the powder dispenser into the mirrored compact and the pretty purple poof fits right inside.
The airy light powder is dispensed through slits in the silicone top which open up when you press down with your powder puff. The powder is very finely milled, silky and translucent. There is quite a bit of very fine sparkle throughout the powder. This really scared this glitterphobe off at first but I found on the skin I didn’t really notice the sparkles unless under close examination in strong sunlight. I have dry skin so I may not be the best judge of the setting capabilities of this powder but I experience no breakthrough shine throughout the day, and usually I at least have some in the T-zone, and it gives a nice softly diffused finish to the skin.
The Limited Lipstick in($29 CAD) Coral Pink is a really pretty juicy shade of coral pink. The formula is very sheer and ultra glossy for more of a tinted glossy balm effect. There is very subtle sparkle for an added glow on the lips. Given the sheer formula it has a short wear time but is very hydrating and easy to reapply.

It is important to note that these products are both very heavily scented. It is a sweet rose scent and it is quite strong. Probably some of the most strongly scented cosmetics I have tried. If you are not a fan of fragrance in your makeup I would avoid but if you love to indulge in a luxe scent then you will love.
You can find Anna Sui products at select The Hudson’s Bay locations and TheBay.com.
