So, £62 for a foundation. I had to try it. I meet so many beauty people who literally swear by this as their go-to, can’t live without base that I needed to see for myself if it’s really that good.
First of all, I’m not that keen on foundation in a pot – yes, I know you’re supposed to use a little spoon but it’s the very first thing that goes missing in my experience, hiding in the same place in the keep drawer as all my eye liner lids, and inevitably, you end up doing a finger dip. However, there is something almost dessert like about the whippyness of Suqqu Foundation; a sort of maron-latte-creme – if I was served a pot by Jamie Oliver I’d tuck right in.
It’s a glossy, healthy looking formula that blends beautifully on the complexion feeling a million times lighter than it looks. This is just a shade down for me, so I wore it on a home day, and found the last to be very good, although I didn’t put it through anything gruelling. I did notice though that it has virtually no smell – those of you who hate perfumed bases would, I think, find this easily tolerable. The finish isn’t matte, but nor is it gleamy – it lies as a mid-point between the two and a little goes a very long way so it will last and last; I can definitely see why makeup artists rave about it but the days of ‘having’ to go over even £20 for foundation are long over since high street brands such as Bourjois upped their game.
So, yes, I get it. Suqqu Foundation feels expensive (my skin feels far softer when wearing it) and has all the charm of a luxury foundation. Essential, no? Extremely lovely? Yes. You can find it HERE.

I’d be prepared to put money down to bet that you won’t have experienced a skin care texture like this before...
The other product from Suqqu that has converts evangelising is the Suqqu Eyebrow Liquid Pen. Now, you definitely don’t need to even think twice about snapping this up if you’re a brow groomer. Soft, feathery strokes in a water and oil resistant formula blend instantly into your own brows with nothing to give away that it’s not all natural brow up there. It has the finest tip that gives a generous amount of colour – no wonder it’s never in stock. I’d recommend this for those who have sparse brows that need to look fuller rather than for full brows that need to look more shapely.
It’s no wonder that these barely stay in stock for five minutes. I have found shades Brown and Moss Green (for ashy, dark brows, and no, it’s not green) HERE (£20) but know there is also a blonde shade that sells out almost instantly every time there is a re-stock.
