SUQQU KESHIZUMI Blend Eye Color Review, Swatches and FOTD

January 8, 2012

Hooray to my friend who brought me back the Suqqu KESHIZUMI Blend Eye Color from UK recently (purchased here). I initially passed it up from my first Suqqu order as I thought the shades appear quite grayish from the Suqqu website. But many swatches online I have seen shows that they lean more towards taupish color which is right up my alley!


The quality of Suqqu eyeshadow is very unique and quite phenomenal in my opinion, as they are the most densely packed eye shadows I have ever used. I noticed that as I have used them many times, the eye shadows still look unused (without any noticeable used marks). And best of all, there is no powder debris after each use which is great for a neat freak like me as I hate my makeup looking ‘dirty’ (with debris all over the pan).  The texture feels slightly harder than most other eye shadows, so they are moderately pigmented but are buildable to your desired finish. I personally find that one or two swipes of each shade applied on top of an eyeshadow primer is good enough for a daytime wear.

I also adore the finish, some eye shadows may look great in swatches but they can look cakey and heavy on the eyes, particularly on aged eyes. Suqqu eye shadows apply like a silky veil and contains just the right amount of shimmer that reflects in the light beautifully. These eye shadow palettes might be out of your consideration if you are into bold and dramatic eye makeup, otherwise they are a staple for every girl!

As usual, all of the blend color eyeshadow palettes contain two shimmer and two matte eye shadows. The KESHIZUMI has

– shimmery silver and a matte plumy brown on the left, and

– a beautiful shimmery plummy taupe with a hint of silver and a matte white shade on the right.

– upper: applied the white shade all over the eyelid and the plummy taupe over the eye socket area. Then I applied the matte brown along the lash line up to the outer v.

– lower: applied the shimmery silver along the lash line and lined the outer third of the lash line with the matte brown.

First picture was taken with flash so the shiny face..but the shimmers always show better in flash photography.

Face: Clé De Peau Teint Naturel Fluide Cream Foundation, Bobbi Brown corrector and Cle De Peau loose powder

Cheek: Suqqu Balancing Cheek in MUKUGE

Eyes: K-Palette 24 long lasting liquid eyeliner in black and Shiseido Perfect Mascara (for the bottom lashes)

Lips: Tom Ford lipstick in Pink Dusk

I thought the taupe and the brown shades in KESHIZUMI looked quite similar to the Chanel Topkapi eye quad from the pan, so I did a comparison for you but they appear different on the skin.
