Suqqu Global Summer 2018, New BY TERRY Cellularose Detoxilyn Skincare and the Skirt I Can't Live Without


The *Suqqu Global Summer 2018 Nude With Spice Collection
What a week! I am currently entering my final grades for the spring semester while packing for my red-eye to NYC (more on that HERE) but I couldn't let another moment pass without sharing a couple spectacular new launches from Suqqu and BY TERRY.  The dreamy and ever-so-wearable *Suqqu Global Summer 2018 Nude With Spice Collection (also to be available at Harrods) launches on May 24th and I have swatches of everything; additionally, I've just begun to test the *BY TERRY Cellularose Detoxilyn Collection and will offer initial impressions later in the post. Finally, I can't wait to show you my favorite skirt as of late...relaxed with a dash of lace flourish, it will be on heavy rotation all summer long.

Kindly scroll on for more details, swatches and images of the launches in action as well as the Bottom Line...

Rife with an usually executed range of warm neutrals, the *Suqqu Global Summer 2018 Nude With Spice Collection (also to be available at Harrods) is packaged in breathtakingly beautiful brown and gold packaging that resonates with the sultry summer months.

The core of the collection, of course, involves the *Suqqu Designing Color Eyes in #118 Akenatsu and #119 Himawari (also available at Harrods). Radiating with the simmering vibes of summer, both palettes embrace gilded yet surprisingly neutral tones that brighten the face without overpowering. 
  • #118 Akenatsu: Contains a diamond white veil, a lush rose with a satin finish, a bold papaya with a demi-matte finish and a radiant deep neutral rosy brown. 
  • #119 Himawari: Contains a diamond white veil with a touch of gold, a pale bronze shimmer, a cheerful yellow cream and a velvety true brown. 
Both are exquisite but for this rosy neutral devotee, #118 Akenatsu has a slight edge. The shadows are creamy with fantastic color payoff and the crease-free performance we've come to expect from Suqqu...so sublime!

For lips and tips.
For lips and tips, the collection boasts two *Flawless Lip Glosses--in the lively orange-red #104 Toubi and spicy beige #105 Mizusuna--and three nail lacquers in massively shiny versions of red, spice and white (also available at Harrods). 

The glosses are semi-sheer with juice color payoff and plenty of reflection and the nail lacquers will suit a spectrum of skin tones (I, for one, cannot wait to try all three with a bit of a tan, however).

For the complexion, the collection features two shades of the new *Juicy Bright Cream Blush as well as the *Nude Illuminating Highlight Stick (reviewed/demonstrated HERE and also available at Harrods).

The *Juicy Bright Cream Blush comes in two gorgeous shades--the peachy #101 Sangozome and the caramel nude #102 Tsuyakogare. Packed with pigment and offset by a creamy shine, the blush is buildable and infinitely pretty. 

Infinitely portable in twist up packaging, the *Nude Illuminating Highlight Stick creates a tender sheen that makes skin look lit-from-within rather than shimmery. Nearly transparent with just the slightest touch of champagne beige, this gorgeous glow works on all skin tones, guaranteeing it a makeup bag must.

Style notes. 
// STYLE NOTES //
  • Fox Tee by Maison Kitsune: I love this men's tee...the classic cut and heather gray cotton allow it to work with anything and the little embroidered fox is brand recognition on a super subtle level. 
  • Lace Trim Skirt by Ragdoll LA: This skirt is casual perfection; with a drawstring waist and pockets, it can be dressed up (with sandals) or dressed down (with tennis shoes) making it a versatile MVP in one's wardrobe. 
  • Gold hoop earrings: Simple and timeless, I've been wearing these on the daily.
  • *Oribe Nail Lacquer in The Nude (reviewed HERE): I always make sure to take this shade with me to my pedicures (which, realistically, happen no more than three times a year) and love the clean opacity and long lasting effect.
