Canmake Mat Fleur Cheeks 01 Mat Apricot Fall 2014 Makeup 1

.

Over the years, my tastes in blusher colors and pigmentation levels have gradually diversified, and I am now a lot more open to more vibrant blusher colors and more pigmented blushers. However, even though I do have blushers with a subtly glowy or shimmery finish, I still tend to prefer predominantly matte blushers with little or no shimmer. For me, Canmake‘s Mat Fleur Cheeks is a must-try product, and today I will be reviewing 01 Mat Apricot.

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.
