Product Spotlight: Anna Sui Lip Tint

14 Sep

Happy Wednesday, readers! I am feeling an intense need for a nap right about now, but there is just way too much to be done. (Don’t you HATE when that happens?)

Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week is in full force here in New York, and this evening, I have the great fortune to be attending the Anna Sui show! I’m looking forward to going and checking out the random assortment of celebs that attend – for the Anna Sui Fall 2011 RTW show that I went to in February, Karen Elson, Fergie, and Vanessa Hudgens were all there. How’s that for an interesting (read: odd) mix?

At any rate, I thought I’d share an Anna Sui product with you today in honor of the show. I’m quite fond of it, and one of my oldest and closest friends gave it to me.

Anna Sui Lip Tint is a sheer balm with a glossy finish that goes on clear and gradually changes from natural to hot pink, depending on your body temperature. I’m not going to try to trick you by saying that Anna Sui Lip Tint is an innovative product and that there’s nothing like it on the market. That is by no means the case. I will tell you, however, that it was one of the first of its kind. I’ve had this product for at least eight years, if not longer – and the packaging of the competing products, which include Smashbox‘s O-Gloss, Too Faced‘s Mood Swing, and Dior‘s Lip Glow, isn’t nearly as beautiful to have sitting out on your vanity. Once the gloss wears off, you are left with a pretty pink stain.

I have only a few complaints with Anna Sui Lip Tint – the first being that this product is rather sticky, which means it’s not so fun to apply with a finger. If you don’t clean said finger right after application, it will be stained pink. Finally, if your lips are a little flaky, be prepared for those flakes to be hot pink!

Interested in Anna Sui Lip Tint? I’m not going to send you to the Anna Sui website, because it’s impossible to navigate. I recommend that you go to an Anna Sui store instead. There’s only one USA location – it’s in New York City, 113 Greene Street (at Spring) in Soho.
