Sunset Splendor: SUQQU Summer 2016 + A Full Beauty Look

Selections from the SUQQU Summer 2016 Collection.
Happy May, lovelies!  The SUQQU Summer 2016 Collection has just launched and today I am over the moon to share a close up of two of launches.  Exclusive to Selfridges in the UK, the streamlined offerings reflect a lushly warm and sunset-esque color palette that feels decidely fresh and appropriate for the rising temperatures that lie ahead.  

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

I received an eyeshadow palette (one of two) and lip color (one of two), both of which resonate for my preference for warm neutrals.  As to be expected from the venerable SUQQU line, the formulas are marked by intense pigmentation, smooth application and significant lasting power. 

The *Eyeshadow Palette in EX-31 Gyoukou is unlike anything currently inhabiting my collection.  Comprised of four distinct shades, this palette takes the notion of a sunset and infuses a delightfully modern element.  There is a pale and shimmering yellow gold (luminous), a creamy white (matte), a rich and vibrant orange (matte) and an earthy chocolate brown (matte). 

Velvety and color-saturated, the shadows feel like butter and for hours on the lids without fallout or creasing.  Although I was initially intimidated by the stark vibrancy of the shades, I am now completely smitten with their singular beauty. 

The *lip color in EX-20 Hyaku Daidai is a resplendent persimmon coral with gleaming luminosity.  Richly pigmented, the formulation features a marvelously moisturizing feel and stunning shine that lasts for hours.  

Generally not attracted to shades this deep (I would deem this a "medium coral red"), I have already found myself wearing this particular hue on more than one occasion in the past couple of weeks.  You truly cannot go wrong with this radiant lip color from SUQQU!

I used the orange shade as a base, applied the brown in the crease, blended the cream shade to my brown bones and tapped the gold tone into the center of my upper eye lid.  I also swept a mix of gold and orange along my lower lash line for continuity.

Bottom Line: I hope you enjoyed this glimpse of the glorious SUQQU Summer 2016 Collection!  As aforementioned, I find the shades to be blissfully wearable yet entirely unique...a duality that makes the pursuit well worth it. 

Good things ahead, including a Mother's Day Gift Guide a skincare feature and a host of new product procurements!  I am also working on responding to your latest round of emails and comments ; ) 

I wish you joy, productivity and a host of gorgeous makeup in May...xx,

  1. You are so rocking this eye palette-- it looks like it was made for you. I am amazed that any product line could come up with a shade range I personally have never seen before. It seems like we are always seeing reformulations of things we already have. Not this one.

    To that end, even though I am a fair cool neutral and it may have been the worst decision, I could not resist ordering it myself. I am planning to build a very pale whitened eyelid base and then build the orange into the higher crease and above and use the brown as a liner, and the gold as the central eyelid accent. Also ordered the lipstick-- what a gorgeous shade. Love the yellow-orange shift to this launch. Not the same old, same old, pinky coral.

  2. I love the orange eye shadow look! Sunset eyes <3
