REVIEW: Anna Sui Dolly Girl Lipstick in 001, 002 & 003


Hey everyone!

For a change, today’s review isn’t going to be about any MAC lipsticks, nor some new products in the market. The items I’m about to feature were launched in 2011 but even so, they weren’t widely reviewed online. They are the limited edition Anna Sui Dolly Girl lipsticks which I bought last month from Carousell because I was attracted by the cute packaging (as usual. I’m sucha packaging whore). They may already be outdated but I feel that they deserve a mention! After all it’s Anna Sui I’m talking about.. and who doesn’t love Anna Sui right?

So here’s a short lipstick review before I move on to eyeshadow (comin’ up in the next post!).

001 (red), 002 (blue), 003 (yellow)

These Russian-dolls inspired lipsticks were actually given names! Everyone, meet Vlada (001), Sasha (002) and Natasha (003).

Rounded lipstick bullet!

I actually bought these thinking that they were matte. You can’t really tell from the bullets, can you? But the colours are so, so gorgeous! And look at the engraving on the rounded bullets! Gosh, so cute. However the roundedness of the bullet means that it’d be difficult to line your lips with it. But it’s okay because you won’t be able to tell if it “bleeds”.

I know I’ve said this many times but I really love Anna Sui for their pretty packaging. The fact that all of their products are scented also makes them really irresistible. Apart from their cosmetics line, I’m also a fan of their perfumes. 🙂

An overview

You can really tell from the swatches above that they are really sheer and they won’t make much difference to your lip colour. But they make great choice on days you don’t feel like wearing thick makeup. This range of lipstick gives you glossy and pinker lips – a great alternative for those who dislike lipgloss (don’t like the sticky texture) like me.

It looks as if I didn’t wear any lipstick at all but without the glossiness my  lips would look really dehydrated. Plus, it kinda lightens my lips a little.

This shade is quite similar to 001 but it’s slightly darker (you can’t really tell if you look at them separately). It gives a subtle hint that you’re wearing something on your lips.

My favourite from this collection because it’s such a pretty nude colour! And I think this appears more prominently among the three lipsticks.. perhaps because my natural lip colour is more on the pink side.

A quick search online for Anna Sui Dolly Girl collection also revealed that it includes three other mascaras, each for different purposes – lengthening, volumising and curling.

As these lipsticks were bought off Carousell, I only paid less than $7 for each ($20 for all)! If I’m not wrong, each retailed for about US$27. Hehe, what a great deal! 😀

What do you think ladies?

Thanks for reading! ❤
