Anna Sui Eye Gloss
Advantages: The packaging
Disadvantages: The cost and the product
After trying, and loving, the Dolly Girl on the Beach fragrance by Anna Sui her fragrances soon become top of my wish list and I lusted after each and every one of them. It wasn't until a few months later I realised she actually had a cosmetics collection and after being so impressed by her fragrances I didn't have a second thought about buying other products endorsed by Sui.
**What is it?**
It is supposed to be an eye shadow that can be used as a lone application or to add a gloss over the top of pre-existing eye shadows. It promises to open up the eye and make you look great for the party season.
Amongst my Anna Sui cosmetics haul was the eye gloss. I chose a deep purple colour as I thought it would go well with my eye shadow collection which is mainly dark greys.
The Eye gloss comes in a small black tub with a black water tight lid which has a floaty, girly pattern embossed upon it. I have no qualms with the packaging it is girly and does its job!
The contents feels quite rubbery and hard and I found it hard to apply and I tried applying this with both an eye shadow brush, a lip gloss brush and my fingers to no avail, I expected it to glide on my lids as the word 'gloss' connotes this!
To be honest I didn't particularly like the colour either it looks more like lilac when it is eventually applied which looks quite childish! I tried to apply it over a lighter grey eye shadow and this completely did not work it just looked like a child's painting on my eyelid! Just awash with colour-and not a very nice colour at that!
**Availability and Cost**
I paid a massive £16 for this gloss and it definitely did not live up to my expectations I would definitely not buy any more of Anna Sui's cosmetics but will instead stick to her fragrances! Her cosmetic and fragrance collection are available from Debenhams and other online stores.
Overall, I think this is an overpriced eye gloss-if you can even call it that. The colour is misleading and it is ever so difficult to apply I wouldn't go recommending this in a hurry!
