Anna Sui Stick Concealer Review


I think Anna Sui has one of the best makeup packaging designs around! It's so beautiful and dark! I can imagine a sultry vixen putting on her makeup in an incense infused boudoir and using Anna Sui products to do it!


Somewhat shamefully, I bought this product because of how beautiful the packaging is and not because of how effectively the concealer works. It's orange which counteracts bluish under eye circles (looking at the color wheel, colors exactly opposite each other will neutralize one another) and is in a twisty tube that dispenses a solid stick concealer. Unfortunately, I find it doesn't cover up my dark circles too well but that may be because once I stroke a little bit on my under eye, blending it out with my fingers takes some product off the area. A brush doesn't seem to change much as it also takes off some product when you use it to blend.


Though it's orange, it's almost the same shade as my skin; blending it to look natural isn't a problem thus. The consistency is good, not too thick and is lightweight enough so that it doesn't settle into the fine lines under the eye. However, it's a pretty expensive product, ranging from 22-28 dollars (but I got it for 10 from a sale...oh yeahhh). There are 3 grams in there and that should last a fair amount of time, I'm not complaining about the amount it gives you.

All in all, it's beautiful to display on your vanity but it only works sub par. I wouldn't say I have monstrous dark circles either so perhaps those of you have a bigger problem with panda eyes would like it even less than me. I wouldn't repurchase this but I'll continue to fantasize about being a sultry vixen putting makeup on in a candle lit boudoir!

Thanks for reading and ciao for now!

  7. I don't blame you for purchasing it mainly because of the packaging! It's so pretty! And it's too bad it didn't work that great but at least you got it for a good deal! :)
