I’m back with another swatch post today! This time featuring Sayuri, an Australian indie brand developed by Anthea in March 2013. The about page on the Sayuri website describes Anthea’s style as “whimsical” and that’s definitely the first word that comes to mind when you see her creations. I have two gorgeous shades for you today sent to me by the international stockist of Sayuri, my dear friend Mei Mei! Let’s take a peek.
Sayuri – Love’s Lustre: First up is Love’s Lustre. A gorgeous baby pastel pink opaque jelly (you could say “crelly” but i have strong feelings about that word, LOL!). It is so gorgeous and delicate and has a subtle holo sparkle. Pictured is three thin coats and no top coat as the finish was very shiny and smooth on its own.
It’s a pink but definitely has a purple undertone. It may not be noticable in the swatches but if you compare it to other pink polishes you notice the blue/purple undertone. That’s probably the reason why I love it so much! It’s not an in-your-face pink, it’s very elegant and flattering!
In the close-up you can see the soft sparkle if you look closely at my middle finger. So pretty! This shade, and the next one are both part of the Beyond The Shadows collection.
Sayuri – Charmed Aurora: Next is this gorgeous periwinkle baby blue jelly. I was most excited about this shade when I opened up my package. I adore blues! This one is particularly unique and gorgeous as it has stunning pink shimmer! Formula was nice to work with, this is three coats.
I just adore the pink shimmer in this one. It works so well with the blue base colour. My pictures barely show half of how strong the pink shimmer is. It’s much more vibrant and obvious in person.
You can purchase Sayuri from the official site if you are based in Australia or from Mei Mei’s Signatures who has worldwide shipping available. Hope you enjoyed my swatches! It was so nice to try Sayuri for the first time. I really love Anthea’s aesthetic, her shades are dreamy and elegant. I can definitely recommend these! Bottles are 3-free and hold 12 ml.
