30 Days of Lipstick, Day 13: Anna Sui Lip Rouge V #361

The lipstick I chose for Day 13 is one that I have discussed on the blog before (find it here: http://vibrantbeautyblog.blogspot.com/2011/10/my-newest-makeup-crush-anna-sui.html), Anna Sui Lip Rouge V #361. I acquired it recently as part of an amazing gift-with-purchase, and have worn it on several occasions since.

Lip Rouge Vs come in adorable gothic (two adjectives not normally combined!) retro packaging, with a base that matches the lipstick shade inside:

#361 is a bright, feminine cherry popsicle pink with a finish that is somewhere in between sheer and full coverage. Plus, it has a lovely rose scent! Here is what it looks like in the tube:

And here are a few pictures of me wearing it:

The Verdict:

  • Provides a to-die-for berry tint on the lips!
  • Irresistible packaging!
  • Does not leave lips dry, even in colder weather
  • Feminine rose scent
  • Fairly expensive (more than $20 CAD)
  • Unfortunately, I'm pretty sure that this lipstick is responsible for a few breakouts I've had around my mouth- such a shame because I'd been loving everything else about it!

Overall, from the packaging to the formula to the shade, this lipstick has been a pleasure to wear! If it weren't for its breakout potential, this would definitely be a regular in my rotation. If you love perky shades with a quirky flare, check out Anna Sui Lip Rouge Vs!


  1. Great work as always Jen! I don't know too much about lipstick, but I'm keen on the different, detailed packaging/case this one comes in.

  2. Thanks, Mike! Yeah, I'm keen on this packaging too :) Totally unique and beautiful to look at!
