Suqqu has released this new eyeshadow quint for the summer 2012, it will be part of the permanent line replacing the 01 Kakitsubata, that I don’t own, so I won’t be able to show you both side by side.
I just received this quint today and when I saw it, I was happy and relieved since I was not able to check it out in person before I ordered.
From the first day I discovered Suqqu and since my first Suqqu purchase, I have always been able to wear all the palettes, even when I ordered without seeing them before, I loved the colors and the shade combinations.
The result is always sophisticated, I can go from a very subtle make up application for a day at the office, to a very dramatic and sexy, yet still appropriate for my age, I wish it would carry on like that forever 🙂
If you know me, you know how much I love Suqqu, there is comfort food and there is comfort make up : I will reach for Suqqu.
I am just sharing some swatches today, please have a look at FruityLashes or Maddy posts to have more detailed description of the shades and a great review of the quint.
This is one of my favorite palettes from Suqqu, with bright shades and actually the shades I like the most at this moment… is it because it’s a trend and I see them everywhere or I don’t know, just a coincidence ??
They are silky and extremely pigmented, the taupe shade and the 2 blue shades left a very heavy stain on my arm, and of course I have already tried all the shades and I am 90% satisfied… The 10% remaining would be met if the lightest shade was a less matte, less powdery texture, not that it’s chalky, but I prefer when the powder disappears and doesn’t leave a powdery finish on the skin, but I still like it, I am really being picky here.
I know it’s going to be so easy to use it in the morning rush and still have a fun neutral-ish look with a twist of color and totally wearable for the office.
I haven’t uploaded swatch comparisons yet but if you are curious and interested to see how these shades compare to others, just let me know, if I have them in my collection, I will upload the swatches for you.
UPDATE … here are some additional swatches side by side…
Not the best swatches and you cannot really see a big difference between the lightest shades, the lightest shade in the 12 Konruri is more pink, in the 01 Kakitsubata it’s more yellow. The peach shade in 12 Konruri is definitely more pigmented, more peachy and of better quality. The brownish shades are totally different.
I have added another blue swatch on the left, it’s from the palette 08 Mizuaoi.
