Founded by former cosmetics marketing exec Joanna Wheaton, Shanghai Suzy is a lipstick-only cosmetics brand housing a bold and bright range of lipsticks. The only cosmetics brand of it's kind, Shanghai Suzy takes it's cues from the fashion industry – each colour lipstick is limited edition and a new on-trend range is delivered every season.
Tired of paying $30 or more for fashion lipsticks that she would only wear a few times, Joanna felt that there was a gap in the market for affordable, on-trend lipsticks that delivered in terms of pigment, formula, colour and packaging – and so Shanghai Suzy was born. At $12.95 each the lipsticks are perfectly 'cheap and chic'. And with a fragrance inspired by grape flavoured bubblegum, say goodbye to that typical waxy lipstick smell.
The brand was launched in August 2013 and is currently in it's fourth season. Each bold hue is matched with its optimal formula – either 'Matte', 'Nourish' or 'Shimmer'. The 'Matte' formula is thick, creamy and long-lasting, and the 'Nourish' formula contains jojoba seed oil and Vitamin E to care for and moisturise lips whilst delivering a beautiful subtle colour with a slight sheen. The new 'Shimmer' formula takes sparkling lips off the catwalk and into our reach, it's completely wearable and buildable for a subtle shimmer or a full coverage, full impact sparkling look. Shanghai Suzy is available to purchase in over 500 stores nationally - in your favourite beauty salons, fashion boutiques and online shopping haunts - view the stockist page for an outlet near you.
