Suqqu Autumn 2016 Lipsticks
If you love matte lipstick, look away now! The Suqqu Autumn 2016 Lipsticks are the juiciest, most succulent lipsticks ever that leave a high sheen on the lip – almost a solid lip gloss.
They’re called Extra Glow for good reason. The composition comprises 7 oils so it’s surprising they even hold together in a solid form. Some are bright shades and others are more gentle, right through to more or less colourless balms.
Suqqu’s customer base age starts at around 35 – so everything is set up to give softening and lightfulness and I’d say these lipsticks are a very good example of the brand understanding their consumer. From bottom to top: Haebana, Mitsuchigo, Ayasango, Beniakane and Suitou.
Saeanzu, Fukabeni, Mitsugaki, Kurumibeni, Yoikajitsu, Akibara and Syunake. These are £23 each.
The cream shadows are a beautiful texture – they contain some shimmer so the effect is near-metallic. However, I have a bit of a job keeping them on my lids – I found they faded quite quickly so a primer is absolutely essential for these and if you have very oily lids, I’d just avoid altogether. The ingredients use oil which gives the amazing texture but I think there is a longevity issue because of it. The upside to this texture is a formula that doesn’t shrink and leave creases on the lids – it moves with the skin, if you like. I’d suggest with these that you try at counter before you buy.
Shades from bottom to top are: Tsuyahonoka, Gensyoukou, Shinkicha and Yakou. They’re £22 each. It’s an August launch for both eyes and lips.
