Anna Sui 2012 Christmas Collection

Time to start writing those Christmas wishlists! Anna Sui's Christmas collection has hit the stores and is selling like hot cakes. This year's theme is "Black Veil" and the catalogue is adorned with images of black lace and dark, delicate butterflies. In movie terms, it's Moulin Rouge meets Twilight, with sexy results (yes that's a Simpsons reference in a cosmetics post...)


A sample collection.

Every year Shu Uemura grabs all the headlines with their designer collaborations but after looking at swatches of both in-store, this year Anna has my vote. To be perfectly honest, the Shu Uemura x Karl Lagerfeld designs are not to my taste at all, neither is the red-red-red colour palette. Anna Sui is the subtle, sexy, smoky alternative. And who can resist black lace?


Choose one of two sets: (L) Seductive Spell, (R) Alluring Charm

My pick of the bunch is the Alluring Charm set, above. The blusher and lip gloss are both excellent products, but the lilac-coloured mousse eye shadow is truely exceptional. I've been on a bit of a purple kick since the end of summer and I think I've reached the promised land. I have never seen a more exquisite shade of purple. The dusty pink of the Seductive Spell set is beautiful too, but I can't resist the purple.


Individual items: eye shadow, face powder and moisturising lip-care set


Individual items: nail varnish, perfume


Limited items: tissue box case, tea rose scented candle

I stayed strong against the allure of Alluring Charm a couple of weeks ago, but I can't stop thinking about it. Should I wait until payday next week? Or just bite the bullet and get it before it sells out?

I don't even need any new make up! (#firstworldproblems)

    1. I only have lipstick and nail varnish but they're the best I own. Only Shu Uemura is on a par.
