Anna Sui Lip and Eyeshadow Palettes

Bargain alert! These baroque inspired Anna Sui eye and lip palettes are half price right now on Escentual, down from £28 to £14 each – that’s just £1.40 per shade! I know – I can’t believe it either! Aside from the fact that these palettes are absolutely beautiful, the makeup inside is pretty special too. With 10 shades in each palette, Anna Sui has got your eyes and lips sorted for every occasion.

With ten eyeshadows ranging from soft, demure neutrals all the way to intense heavily pigmented glitzy shades, the palette contains all the variations you need to create a glitzy smokey eye, or a neutral everyday look with taupe and smokey shades. With the handy brush included in the packaging, the only thing I’d change about the palette would be to include a little mirror in the lid – but then I guess it’s a bit large to take with you on the go – mine hasn’t left my dressing table yet! 
The shadows are soft and easily blend-able, and have an understated shimmer. With primer, the shadows lasting power is impressive and the pigment remains bold throughout the day.
The lip glosses have a balmy texture but with the pigmentation of a lipstick, giving lips hydration and a splash of colour. I’m not the biggest fan of applying lipstick from palettes, I usually prefer a tube or lipstick – but I love the shade selection so much that I still find myself reaching for the lip brush! The shades are ideal for whatever makeup look you are creating that day – from a surprisingly pigmented nude, through to intense pinks, corals and reds. 
The palettes usually retail for £28 each, but you can get them right now for just £14 each on the Escentual website – go get ’em before they’re gone!
