SUQQU Blend Color Eyeshadow EX-30 Hekikai Summer 2016 Makeup 1

.

Even though SUQQU has been known for beautifully wearable neutral eyeshadows, those of you who have been fans of the brand for a long time might remember that, prior to the launch of Blend Eyeshadow palettes (predecessors of Blend Color Eyeshadow palettes) in fall 2007, it carried mostly eyeshadow singles. Among them were many stylishly vibrant and saturated colors. (Have a look at this post on SUQQU for some of them.)

On April 28th, SUQQU released a limited-edition makeup collection for summer 2016 that is currently exclusive to the UK. (It was exclusive to Selfridges and it is now also available in Fenwick Bond Street and Harrods.) This stunningly colorful collection reminds me of the bright eyeshadows released around ten years ago. I had a chance to see the collection in person and I decided to go for Blend Color Eyeshadow in EX-30 Hekikai.

Back in 2007, I mentioned that Lunasol‘s fall 2007 Dual Glowing Purification makeup collection was one of the brand’s most stunning makeup collections. Nine years and thirty-four seasonal collections later, I still think this collection, inspired by jewel-toned hues, is one of the best from the brand. Today, I will be reviewing Geminate Eyes in 05 RB from the collection.

SUQQU Blend Color Eyeshadow EX-26 Yuuaoi Fall 2015 Makeup 1

.

Pink and purple are my favorite color combination for eyeshadows, but I also like warm brown and dark blue. When I came cross the information on SUQQU‘s fall 2015 makeup collection, the limited-edition Blend Color Eyeshadow in EX-26 Yuuaoi immediately caught my attention. When I tested the palette at the counter later on, I was a little unsure about the tone of the brown shade (more explanation below). However, I still decided to purchase the palette mainly because I liked the color combination.
