shanghai suzy ss16/17 collection

This review is for the Shanghai Suzy SS16/17 Collection. Individual lipsticks retail for $14.95 AUD.

What Shanghai Suzy say about their range:

“Shanghai Suzy’s new SS16/17 collection ‘Cocktails at Sunset’ celebrates the gorgeous tones in a Summer sunset – peach, pink, red and orange. The perfect pop of colour to wear as you enjoy a cocktail (or mocktail!) as the sun goes down on a balmy evening. Our ‘Cocktails at Sunset’ range is proudly Made in Melbourne! Presented in our sleek shiny black ‘pop up’ packaging, our ‘Whipped Matte Formula’ is lightweight like whipped cream, yet long lasting and amazingly comfortable with a beautiful matte finish.”

My Thoughts:

There isn’t anything not to love about the Shanghai Suzy range. They are constantly releasing new, on-trend shades in beautiful formulas, and the price is definitely right!

The Upside:

Affordable, constantly evolving shades, lovely opaque formulas (which smell great!), and the entire Shanghai Suzy range is vegan!

The Downside:

When I was in Queensland I had two lipsticks break. As a general rule I am not very gentle when applying lipstick, so I blame myself and not the product, but if you live in a warm climate I reccomend keeping these lippies somewhere cool – even in the fridge – as the heat can make them fragile. If you’re out and about on a hot day keep this in mind when applying them, and be gentle or use a lip brush to apply.

Makeup Artist Tip:

Line your lips first with a similar shade of lip pencil, then use a generous coat of lipstick and blot with a tissue for long lasting wear. These double as a cream blush beautifully, and help to tie looks together if you don’t have the right shade of blush or are touching up on the go.


The Shanghai Suzy range is available within Australia from stockists and online from their website. Also, right now they are having a sale – five lipsticks of your choice for $50 – so make sure you take advantage of this amazing deal.

Thank you for choosing truly cruelty free products!
