Anna Sui Tempting Sweets Holiday Collection 2014

Anna Sui was in Toronto yesterday enjoying the weather and showing off her new holiday makeup  collection. I had a chance to find out a little about the lady behind the Anna Sui empire - and what was most surprising to me was that for a superstar designer with her fingers in so many pies, she is super-chill! At the same time you can see she is very focused, and loves what she does - which is a good thing, there was never a second choice to being a designer, she knew she wanted to be one at the age of 4!

I had always been curious to know if she had a particular age range in mind for her beauty line - the packaging is so cute and quirky that it can read young but I also find there to be a sophistication to it that appeals to me and those I know older then me as well. Anna assured me that the products are meant for all ages and are meant to appeal to those with a young spirit, not necessarily a young age. The sophistication in the line comes from the art deco influence that plays throughout the products and packaging.

Her holiday collection is inspired by a tempting assortment of sweet treats
Holiday Sweets Gift Set - $39 - in 01 Sweet Espresso and 02 Sugary Sweet - each set features a creamy eye color, creamy cheek color, moisturizing lip color and lip balm jelly housed in adorable packaging meant to bring Hansel and Gretel to mind.
The containers inside are super-cute and look good enough to eat - but I wouldn't recommend it, crunchy...
and you'll love what's inside the containers even more!

01 Sweet Espresso: Creamy Eye Color - Chocolate - red, bronze pearls, and Platinum Almond - gold, silver pearls; Creamy Cheek Color - Cherry - silver pearls; Moisturizing Lip Color - Cranberry - gold, silver pearls; and a Lip Balm Jelly (similar to the one with the dots in the picture).

02 Sugary Sweet: Creamy Eye Color - Pink Almond - red, bronze pearls, and Hazelnut - gold, silver pearls; Creamy Cheek Color - Strawberry - silver pearls; Moisturizing Lip Color - Pink Cherry - gold, silver pearls; and a Lip Balm Jelly (the one with the dots in the picture).
Anna Sui Hand Mirror - $25 - limited edition - this translucent purple mirror was modeled after the most decadent cake while still keeping a unique vintage look.
Anna Sui Nail Color N - $15 - in shades inspired by chocolate chip ice cream including: Vanilla White, Mint Green, Strawberry Milk and Cassis Pink.

Available now at Hudson's Bay - Yorkdale, Queen Street, Sherway Gardens, Vancouver, Richmond Centre and Shoppers Drug Mart stores across Canada.
