“ Brand: Anna Sui / Type: Mascara / Suitable for: Eye „
love the smell, love the design
first, I am asian, not that i have tiny eyes, but my eye lashes are short, and thin. almost look like i have no eyelashes without mascara
- this mascara is smthing i will always use bc it does the job without clumping, i don't mind reapplying 2-3 times to get the job done
- smell so good (all Ana Sui product has distinct rose fragrance) , i can't stress that enough. Basically opening the bottle and smelling it while putting on the mascara just make my morning bright. (putting makeup on should be smthing joyful, right???)
-get the work done. Although it said its not waterproof but its definitely more waterproof than some cheaper brand waterproof mascara i had
- i tried cotton pad with water and rubbing it really hard and i only got little products off, where the cheap ELF waterproof comes off easily and flake with i rub my eye
the only thing i dont like about this mascara is that its really hard to take it off, u really have to use the anna sui makeup remover otherwise it does require more time and patient with other brands
The first thing I noticed about this mascara was its scent. Anna Sui, in keeping with its rose based packaging, also seems to include rose scent in pretty much anything that they can manage and this mascara is no exception. Although I rather like it, I also must acknowledge that it may annoy the hell out of some people. However, you only notice it while your applying it and it either doesn't linger for long or you become accustomed to it pretty quick.
This mascara is great if what you're looking for is a natural look. It doesn't really build volumes so if you're looking to create the heavy lash look, this is not the ideal one for you. However, this mascara does seem to lengthen slightly (though not dramatically).
The one thing I loved about this mascara, however, was its broad selection of colour; I had been dying to get a red mascara for a long time and finally got my hands on them! The unusual colour adds an unique edge and I personally think the silver one would look great for summer.
Since this mascara doesn't have dramatic effects, may be ideal to layer over lashes that already has other mascaras applied.
Anna Sui Masacara
A few months ago when my normal brand of mascara ran out (have been using same brand for several years) I decided that it was time to update my look and my makeup bag.
I am fortunate enough to have very dark eye lashes, so colour is not a problem but as with most women I like my eye lashes to look much longer. I went shoping with a freind and she suggested Anna Sui Mascara. I had never heard of Anna Sui (excuse my ignorance) and was like a kid in a sweet shop at the Anna Sui counter looking at all the fabulously packaged cosmetics.
I was given advise for a very friendly (and as always without a hair out of place) assistant who recommended Anna Sui Super Mascara in black. I paid approx £16 for the mascara and was fortunate enough to get a small free gift.
The mascara was packaged so nicely (will look good in the makeup bag) that it almost seemed a shame to use it.
When I tried the mascara the consistency was thick without any clumps and applied smoothly to my lashes. The colour was great and looked nice and shiny. The mascara lengthened my lashes no end and the effect lasted all day.
Really great product that I would purchase gain
Nothing more exciting than trying new beauty products on the counter. When I ran out of mascara, I decided to try the new brand and see if I like it better than my usual. I decided to stop by Anna Sui cosmetic counter. The helpful sales in a glamorous uniform really gave me the chance to browse their products and answer all the questions I have. Looking of the nice packaging, it was a fun experience. Really.
As usual, I prefer to use waterproof mascara. The reason is simple, I dont wanna be bother thinking about my mascara during rainy days. Good thing, Anna Sui has waterproof mascara.
When I opened the box, it was a beautiful flowery box and looks so classic looking. Its kinda remind me of "my grandma's" but in a very feminine and glamorous way, so, I love it too.
The bottles is unique as well, it a bit chunkier than usual mascara, but the design is excquisite. Jet black with nice decorative texture and purple sign. On top of the mascara handle, there's a rose sculpture. Beautiful...beautiful.
The texture is quiet light. Not too thick and not too watery either. Once you open it, you can smell the rose fragrance (I guess, most of Anna Sui's cometics smells like rose, fine by me, coz its great!). Nothing unusual with the brush, but I guess its a bit softer than others.
I can apply it easily, I like the way its makes my eye lashes looks like its linger than usual. But I was a bit dissapointed coz it doesn't add volume.
Once I apply it, it gonna stay there for ages. I mean it. No matter how wet my face, the mascara still there until I remove it with eye make-up remover. So its really doing it job so well.
Basically, I like it. I mean...its not as I expected coz bo volume...but I like the rose smell, and the packaging (when I re-apply on the public restroom, lots of girls complement!). Will, I but again next time??? well, if the have waterproof vominizer mascara, I certainly will!
