Every season, we look forward to seeing what Anna Sui comes up with, especially when it comes to beauty. We know we’ll get some classic-yet-distinctive color options for eyes and lips, and some stunning shelf candy to boot. Summer 2014 is no different! We put Anna’s new gorgeous and practical picks to the test (check out the inspiration look below). Get ready to clear out some space on your vanity, and say hello to all your new summery goodness!
Nothing says summer like a subtle glow with oranges and pinks. Here, we went for a sun-kissed citrus-inspired vibe from eyes to cheeks to lips.
on face: EVE LOM TLC Cream, Anna Sui Pore Smoothing Primer, Cover FX CC Cream in N Medium, RCMA Color Process Foundation in OL-1 as concealer, Too Faced Beach Bunny Deep Bronzing Powder, and Anna Sui Rose Cheek Color in 602.

Because you need a place to stash your favorite Sui eye shadow, why not pick up one of these brand new, ridiculously cute charm-style cases? There are four different styles—a red lock and key, a purple heart, a black purse, and a blue book. What’s more is, thanks to a ball-chain strap, you can hook yours onto a keychain, charm bracelet, or wallet, and take it wherever you go. And any (or the whole set) would be right at home displayed on an Anna Sui collector’s shelf, too. (You know who you are!)

We love that these on-trend shimmery shadows—three of which are new this season—are subtle enough to work day or night. Two standouts: 052, a seriously dark metallic black with specks of glitter that would amp up a smoky eye, and 250, a metallic purple perfect for adding a touch of color to a sultry look. The creamy product glides onto lids, stays put, and doesn’t crease.

Sui already has a pretty well-rounded range of classic powder shadows, but you can never have too many, right? For summer, we’re especially into this golden-orange hue. It might look hard to pull off in the pan, but once on, it’s more gold shimmer than hot citrus. An oil-rich base helps keep the subtle sparkles in place, and gives it a wet-look effect. Love!

This new gloss couldn’t have come at a better time. With the weather seriously heating up and the sun lingering overhead, we need to keep our lips protected. And each of the tubes, which are sculptural and ornate in typical Anna Sui fashion, is full of a plumping oil–infused formula with SPF 20 built in. That means you get sheer color, moisture, protection, and line-minimizing benefits all at once. Each shade would be a great addition to any kit: 301, a mauve-pink; 400, a translucent red; and 600, a coral-orange.

On days when you don’t want to put much thought into your makeup, look no further than these sparkly glosses. All three options are classic—there’s 300, shimmery bubblegum pink; 701, a golden peachy-beige; and 400, a classic ruby red—the color itself is translucent, but leaves a coat of shimmer that subtly sparkles all day long.
