Anna Sui Eye colour palette Review

When browsing through the FeelYounique.com sale, I came across the Anna Sui eye colour palette, which normally retails for £28.00, down to £12. So I decided to give it a go.

Anna Sui Eye Colour Palette (Feel younique/Asos – £28.00 RRP)

So as soon as I opened the palette, I noticed a familiar scent, the same as my Missha Signature Radiance foundation, a smell that resembles old lady perfume. Why companies feel the need to heavily scent make up I have no idea. So immediately i disliked this product as I can’t stand that kind of scent, but I tried to give the benefit of the doubt, and see how it swatched.

For £28.00 I was disappointed in the texture and pigmentation of the shadows. A few shades were extremely chalky, powdery, very cheap feeling. As a big fan of Makeup Revolution eyeshadows, which are usually around £4-6 for a palette of 12 colours, I was sad that this much more expensive palette couldn’t even match that of the affordable shadows I usually use.

Not sure if you can see in picture but a few of the shades have chunks and alot of flakiness. The pale pink practically fell apart just being swatched too.

The next day I gave the palette one more chance and tried to wear a few of the colours. Apart from the horrible scent all was fine as I covered my lid in the white shade, and when I went in with the khaki green in the outer corner, I noticed the shadow just blends away to nothing. You have to lay  it on quite heavy to get any pigmentation from it, and then when you try and blend it, it just disapears.

Very disapointed, and relieved I didn’t pay full price for this palette, but even £12 seems far too much. Wouldn’t repurchase, wouldn’t recommend, and to be honest, this palette won’t be used at all.

Have you got this palette? Do you feel differently? Let me know in the comments!

Much Love
