Hooray to New SUQQU! Blend Colour Eyeshadow EX31 and Creamy Glow Lipstick EX21 Review and Swatch

May 29, 2016

This summer Suqqu has released an exclusive collection for Selfridges UK only. I was thrilled to receive the limited edition blend Colour Eyeshadow EX31 and the gorgeous Creamy Glow Lipstick EX21. Long time readers would know how much I am obsessed with Suqqu, and they are my most loved and treasured makeup collection.

As with most summer makeup collections, the Suqqu Blend Colour Eye Shadow EX31 is a more colorful palette than the usual color themes from other seasons. First thought of the palette was that the burst of orange eye shadow was definitely not in my comfort zone. However after playing with the palette for a few weeks, my worry was eased as the rest of the 3 neutral colors were extremely easy to work with, and they helped to ‘soften’ the pop of orange and make it more flattering. I am not the most creative person with colorful bright eye shadows, so I googled for orange matte eye shadow inspirations, and I found some really great looks that I thought I’d share. It is actually getting more fun to wear this palette, and my preferred application is to softly apply the orange shade over the crease area, then apply and blend the golden shade over all the lid (similar to look 1).

The quality of this palette is consistent with the permanent line. It contains 3 matte and 1 shimmer shades.  Suqqu’s matte eye shadow is the best of the best – they are very smooth and even to apply and blend like a dream. Their shimmer eye shadow is also no exceptions – silky buttery smooth with a beautiful satin sheen. All the shades in this palette are very highly pigmented, so a little goes a long way.

On to the Creamy Glow EX21 Lipstick, which is my holy grail lipstick out of all the brands I have (more review here). Suqqu’s lipsticks have the most nourishing, hydrating formula, and it has a lightweight, creamy and silky consistency without being overly slippery. It gives the most plumping, and hydrating effect to the lips immediately after application, and keeps the lips moist for hours. EX-21 is an ultra pigmented bright raspberry pink with a hint of plummy undertone in full coat. The color becomes more of a soft rosy pink for a sheer coat, and it looks more soft and girly.

I love the lipstick color, it’s gorgeous. I haven’t got a chance to try suqqu but it’s such a great lippy hearing from your description. I just recently hear about tatcha lipstick and other blogger described it similar to the suqqu ones so i thought maybe i’ll try that, tatcha is more accessible for me in the US. Have you try tatcha products? I’d love to hear your opinions. I’m currently eyeing more of Asian skincare, some of the Korean luxury lines like Sulwhasoo and Whoo and Tatcha. I’d like to try their brightening products to help me with my acne scars from the recent terrible breakout before they got worse. A friend adviced me to use brightening products in the summer and hydrating products in the winter, i’m a bit worried of this as Texas summer sun is so strong and maybe not a good idea for brightening products in the summer, maybe i’ll use it at night :).
