Suqqu Foundation Review

April 8, 2013

My skin’s been looking good lately, not only have my girlfriends noticed, even my DH has commented on several occasions which hardly happens! Apart from my diligent skincare routine everyday, I attributed my ‘good skin’ to this wonderful Suqqu Foundation. It is everything I wanted from a foundation except for the hefty price tag.

It retails for £62.00 for 30 grams of product, and is exclusive to UK. I am a shade 10 which is the lightest shade from the pink based range.

If you are a Suqqu fan, you probably would have heard a lot of raving reviews for this foundation. It has won many beauty awards over the years and widely worshiped by the beauty editors across East Asia. Suqqu has also released a newer cream foundation called Frame Fix Cream Foundation in recent years, and the majority of people still prefer the old one from the reviews I have read. I tested both at a Suqqu counter and applied one on each side of my face, and in the end both the SA and I agreed that the original one looked better on my skin. Having said that I believe the Frame Fix is more suitable for oily to combo skin type as it gives a more matte finish.

The Suqqu Foundation has an airy light creamy texture which I absolutey adore. It spreads like melted and whipped butter, and sinks into the skin straight away. Although it is a cream based foundation, it feels very lightweight and non-greasy. It is the seasonal transition time where my skin is a little drier and more sensitive than usual. If I don’t have layers and layers of moisturizer and primers on, most foundations apply blotchy and can look flakey on my skin. The Suqqu Foundation applies like an exquisite moisturizer – I only need my fingers to spread the product over and it applies completely streak free and gives a ‘poreless-your-skin-but-much-better’ finish with a subtle dewy glow. Since the texture is so forgiving for dryer skin, I can layer this foundation on multiple times on certain areas (ie under eyes or around the edge of the nose) to build more coverage without caking up or enhancing any lines. A pea-sized dab is enough for the whole face for a sheer to medium coverage so a jar like this will last me forever, and of course you can use more product to get more coverage and it will still look natural. It looks still fresh on me after 8 hours of wear in air conditioned environment.

Bottom Line: I don’t want to sound biased, but it really is an exquisite foundation with a to-die-for luxurious texture which would be perfect for anyone with normal to dry skin or mature skin. It will blow you away! The Suqqu Foundation is available here with more product information.

I adore Suqqu, their textures are pure luxury, I wish they would came out with lighter shades though. I am jealous over your good skin, mine is getting kinda wonky lately, but my kahina argan oil works wonders for my dry-after-winter skin. I think the essential quality feature of a really good product is, when you try to layer it/or on dry patches, it should work like a dream (lunasol base makeup is very good as well imo). I happily pay the $$$ for Suqqu.

Wow, that does sound like an amazing foundation. I did not know that selfridges shipped internationally. So doyou have shade 15? I am very pale and I am not completely sure if it would suit me.

we don’t have suqqu counters here… i am really wondering how to find a match, given the expensive price tag , need to be sure… what shade do you reckon would be suitable for someone NC 25 -30, neutral tones?

I really like Chantecaille Just Skin Tinted Moisturiser and now I’m looking for a natural medium coverage foundation. You give rave reviews on both Chantecaille Future Skin and Suqqu Foundation, which one is your favourite/the best? Which one is the most forgiving on dry patches? And is the shade Chantecaille Alabaster similar to the Suqqu 10?
Thank you for the reviews!
Best from Diana
