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.

SUQQU Creamy Glow Lipstick Moist 09 Zakuroseki Fall 2014 Makeup 1

.

Among the items from SUQQU‘s fall 2014 makeup collection, what piqued my interest was neither Blend Color Eyeshadow in EX-21 (with eight shades) nor the new Eye Color Palette range. It was the new shades of Creamy Glow Lipstick Moist that caught my attention. I didn’t walk away with any of them after testing them for the first time, but I did decide to go for 09 Zakuroseki a few months later.

Integrate’s fall 2015 makeup collection features the new Nudy Grade Eyes series. Based on some of the images I have seen online, it seems that the colors, the pigmentation levels and the finishes are all towards the natural side. I am currently interested in BR353.
