Today I will share my thoughts about Suqqu Blend Color Eyeshadows in 14 Kosumosuiro. This retails at £45 in Selfridges. Kosumosuiro consist of 3 powder eyeshadow and 1 cream green eyeshadow. The three powder eyeshadow are very wearable in colors, a soft pink with shimmer, an off white color and a shimmering taupe. The cream eyeshadow is a dark khaki without shimmer.
The palette is a thin sleek black palette in a rectangular shape. It comes with a velvety pouch, just like any other branded eyeshadow. There is one mini brush with a very soft hair (softest hair in a mini brush that I have ever touched!) and one mini sponge. Although the mini brush is super soft, I don’t think I’d use it because it’s just way to small to apply/blend.
Now I am going to talk about the powder eyeshadow. Suqqu is very famous with its soft and buttery texture. I have to agree that the texture is very nice; it’s soft, buttery and glides on easily on the eyes. What I love about the texture of this eyeshadow is that it contains fine shimmer that doesn’t look too much when applied. It blends like a dream too! Like many other Japanese make up brands, the pigmentation of this eyeshadow is not the best, I like Urban Decay’s pigmentation better than this. But to you who love sheer looking eyeshadow, this would suits you ladies! I personally would layer twice (or even 3 layers) for a bolder look.
The cream eyeshadow here has a fine texture. The pigmentation is very good and it works very well as a base. If I have to compare the texture of this cream eyeshadow, I would pick Shiseido’s cream eyeshadow as a comparison. The texture are similar, but I have to say that I love Shiseido’s texture better. Shiseido eyeshadow feels softer to me. But judging from its wearability, Suqqu cream shadow lasts the whole day with me without smudging! I love a long lasting eyeshadow 😀
In the picture below, I did a swatch indoor and outdoor.
I did a very simple look with this palette for my Sunday brunch. In this look, I am only using the dark green cream eyeshadow and the shimmery taupe.
I hope my review will be helpful to you all 🙂
