SUQQU '14 - First Impressions

I do hate to be the bearer of bad news, Summer is ending soon and if the weather is anything to go by right this moment. It's drawing to a close soon. This SUQQU range is actually there S/S '14 collection and exclusive to Selfridges. It took me awhile to speak on this collection (about 5 months) because to be fair, I wasn't too blown away by it.
I used the Blend Color Eyeshadow Quad in Hanashoubu 16 but the shades weren't that great in pigmentation. The purple took quite a few attempts to deepen and when I started to blend it out, it virtually started to disappear, which for some I guess it's not a bad thing for some but it's not what I was looking for, I ended up blending using the shadow on my brush. I applied the Champagne shade in the inner corner over the purple, this was the only time it was visible.
The Balancing Cheeks duo, it's a nice little compact duo of a blusher and a highlighter, these contain red-gold micro-particles to create a glow and more depth but I didn't find that happened with mine, the colour was too light for me that it didn't show up much on the skin but it did give a VERY subtle colour but not enough for me, even after building it up.

Last but not least the Smoothing Face Color, it gives the skin a smooth, even overall complexion with hiding those imperfections that might occur like pores! There's three different shades, swiped into one to be blended onto the face to deliver a one step solution to imperfections. The pink shade on the left aims to correct any discolouration & uneven skintone, . Centre beige powder is a non-pearlescent powder to help create smooth looking skin without visible pores. While the white powder on the right it contains green pearls to reflects light to improve the appearance of skin and blur imperfections. It's quite expensive and I guess it does as it says but I wouldn't pay the money for it.

To be honest my first encounter with SUQQU wasn't the best and I'm not too keen on the brand after this range. Everything felt flat maybe the colours I was sent wasn't suitable for my skin tone but for the most part it really goes to show, higher end doesn't mean the best!

Blend Color Eyeshadow (16) £45.00
