I’m hoping it will more acceptable to see autumn/winter beauty by telling you that this collection launches in the height of summer – August. I don’t get to many launches these days but I will always do my level best to go to a Suqqu launch because a) epic make up artist, Morag Ross, is always there, and b) I love this brand. It’s all of the quality – I have never had a bad product from Suqqu that I can think of and they just know colour. So, here we go:
Starting with the Hisuikou Designing Color Eyes Palette – I can see why this collection launches in August because this is such a good transitional palette with the washes of blue against golden, sandy shades and dark grey stripe. All of the palettes are shimmery – twinkling really with tiny little shimmers, and they’re all £46 each. It’s reminding me of Bobbi Brown for some reason.
This one is Yoibei, with a mix of brown tones and a shot of pink. It’s like adding a drop of Framboise into your coffee.
Horeaka is a limited edition palette with baby pink, deep aubergine, sand and a more vibrant reddish pink.
Elizabeth Arden Hyaluronic Acid Ceramide Capsules
I’d be prepared to put money down to bet that you won’t have experienced a skin care texture like this before...
Yes, that’s a blue lipstick. The formulas of the Suqqu Moisture Rich Lipsticks are just amazing – literally on the tipping point of melting which results in a glossy, super-soft textured lip sheer. So, the blue, Hyouka, is a make up artist’s dream but a consumer nightmare – it’s designed to bring out blue tones in your lips and to be honest, I really didn’t notice any difference at all. But, the nuance is the kind of thing that works really well on a beauty photo shoot where the attention to detail is more than I can imagine. The second shade is Ichujiku, with the UK name of Fig Red and when you see the swatch, you’ll see why it’s a perfect name.
See? Exactly the shade of fig flesh – I’m wearing it right now and LOVE it. The orange shade is part of the core collection. The icy blue shade, as you can see, is more ice than blue!
There are two new blushes (although I don’t think you can improve on the Suqqu ombre blusher), the warm toned is called Amacha, and the fuchsia tone is Beniazuki. They’re £32.
Suqqu gives the most effortless swatches I ever do – one swipe and all of the pigment is there. The collection kicks off at Selfridges on 10th August (and the last Christmas collection sold out before I could even get it on the blog by the way), then in Fenwick and Harrods from 24th. Believe it or not, I have the Christmas collection for this brand on the way!
