Anna Sui Holiday 2011

This holiday season, Anna Sui brings you all the delicate details needed to complete your party look. Anna Sui's Christmas collection, Magic of Mystical Masquerade, is made up from eight items: Eye Color Palette & Lip Gloss Set, False Eye Lashes, Beauty Mirror 1, Beauty Mirror L, Metallic Color, Beautiful Hair Kit, Bath Set and Fragrance Miniature Set.

All of the products mentioned except for Metallic Color are limited edition, so snag them quickly before they sell out!

My journey began with alluring glossy colours to spice up the eyes - Metallic Color. According to the press release, they are used to accentuate eye looks and you can also apply them straight to your lids for a vibrant look. The sparkly glitters show up very well thanks to the clear base formula.

300 Metallic Pink is a cerise.

The brush applicator is very easy to use. It is flexible and the bristles won't splay much. However, it is not thin and won't be suitable for precision lining.

500 Metallic Gold is exactly as its name suggests, a pure gold shade.

900 Metallic Green is a forest green.

With Christmas around the corner, I think that these glittery colours would be the perfect addition to any holiday look. I would apply it to the tips of my lashes, as a lower lid liner or to highlight the middle of my lids.

The sticky consistency allows the glitter to adhere without any fall outs. They last long on their own without needing a sealant to lock them in place (as always, I prep my lids with Urban Decay Primer Potion beforehand). The glitter is very sparse when applied to the bare lid. Nevertheless, you can get more opacity with careful layering. For Metallic Color to show their full potential, you should apply them over any regular eyeliner or eyeshadow.

They dry quickly, don't transfer and are easy to remove. If you love glitter, Metallic Color is definitely for you!

Metallic Color comes in six shades, 100 Metallic Blue, 200 Metallic Purple, 300 Metallic Pink, 500 Metallic Gold, 800 Metallic Yellow and 900 Metallic Green, and can be found at Anna Sui counters nationwide for RM 102.

I love the masquerade theme, weird that they include two mirrors though. The holiday eyeliners also look really good on you, glitter eyeliners are so fun. xD
