In the UK, SUQQU is one of those brands that’s in limited distribution and therefore doesn’t really get the attention it deserves. The SUQQU spring 2014 collection is interesting in that it hasn’t really gone for obviously spring-like shades and has used brown as the basis for the spring look. In fact, it’s kind of an anti-spring spring look! There are two other palettes in the spring collection; Mitsucha (beige and brown) and Hanashoubu (purple and brown). The palette above is Yomogiiro and centres around khaki and brown. The palest shade that you see is in fact a ‘Moisture Sealing Wet Granulation Formula’, designed to correct imperfections and uneven tone and gives a ‘boost’ in terms of glow to the other shades when used beneath. I haven’t put this aspect to the test yet.
The colours are a beautiful saturation on the swatch – neither too leery nor too wishy-washy and there are glimmers in the formula. While I thought this a little dull at first, Yomogiiro really does have life to it with versatility. Although it’s a little bleached out by my camera, the first shade is a pale violet shade. The lip swatch you see is SUQQU Creamy Glow Lipstick Moist in Usubeni; a clear, flattering red that is sheer and glossy – I love it and it’s gone straight into my handbag! Usubeni is very succulent on the lip – juicy and shimmer free. The eye palettes are £45 each – a lot, I think, and Creamy Glow Moist Lipstick Moist is £27.
The SUQQU spring collection launches in Selfridges on 20th February.
