Anna Sui Lip Rouge G in #301

As I was Googling Anna Sui's Lip Rouge G in #301 (I always like to check Makeupalley and beauty blogs for reviews when I'm shopping - thank you data plan!), I was disappointed that I couldn't find any posts about it. However, I've been in the market for a new pink lipstick for quite sometime and this looked like it might be "it" so I decided to pick it up anyway. Let me just say I'm so glad that I did!

Anna Sui products are known for their cute packaging, which utilizes a girly-gothic black rose motif. This lipstick is no exception - look at how pretty it is!

Although it's all plastic, the casing seems like it's fairly good quality. Plus, I love all the little details like the cut-out hearts on the lid.

#301 is a gorgeous pink that looks a lot brighter in the tube than it does on my medium pigmented lips. Strangely enough, I don't have a colour quite like this in my collection at the moment so this fills that gap perfectly.

The lipstick has a light rose scent which is pretty neutral. It might bother some people who are sensitive to smell but personally I don't find this one to be too strong. The product itself applies easily, leaving a nice opaque colour. And since the "G" in this line stands for "Glossy", so you can expect the shine of lipgloss without the stickiness.

At $25 CDN the Lip Rouge line is a bit of a splurge, but I think if you're looking for a product that combines quality with cute packaging, you should definitely look into Anna Sui. There were a few other shades that caught my eye that I'm hoping to try out in the near future.


  1. ooh I love Anna Sui! i love how it looks on you!

  8. I adore Anna Sui!! I'm always drooling over the Anna Sui stuff at Shoppers and Sears, lol. I've only ever bought one Anna Sui thing and it's a nail polish trio in an super cute purple Anna Sui house tin. The lipstick looks beautiful, gorgeous shade of pink!

  9. @Deb I know, I've always loved the packaging on her products... I don't know why it took me so long to try them out!
