THE SUQQU THREAD | NEWS & DISCUSSION

I’m a huge Suqqu (and several other Japanese beauty brands) fan. I’m not sure how many other enthusiasts we have on BIC but I thought it’d be nice to have a dedicated space.

 

Suqqu is primarily sold in the Asian market but a small portion of their inventory seems to make it to the UK as well.

 

Current release (SS19)

 I mostly decided to maintain this thread because I know how incredibly challenging it's been for me to find information and swatches of upcoming releases without speaking the language. I'm sure there are probably others out there who have this issue too, so hopefully this thread will be helpful to someone.

 

Please feel free to ask questions and share any upcoming news you might find.

 

 

 

 

Re: THE SUQQU THREAD | NEWS & DISCUSSION

@eshoe Mostly for convenience’s sake, in my case.

 

i have all my Suqqu in old MUFE empty palettes and I find it easier to come up with a makeup look at a glance when they’re all in front of me.

 

the old eyeshadow formulation (blend colour eyes) used to have a very typical format for the quads (1 white shadow to use as a base, followed by 3 colours that make up an intended look) and since I always kind of considered the white an unnecessary inclusion, having everything depotted made it easier to combine multiple palettes in unexpected ways. I started depotting when I used to buy the old formula but I’ve just continued out of habit with the new one.

 

many Japanese brands are easier to depot and have little pinholes in the back to pop pans out. So it doesn’t require knives or heat or methods that could otherwise damage a palette. Sometimes I do hesitate if it’s particularly nice LE packaging, but for the most part the newer line doesn’t indulge in special packaging as much as the old one did. At most they change the colour of the outer palette (to white or bronze, from the signature gloss black)

Re: THE SUQQU THREAD | NEWS & DISCUSSION

@Mochapj I have never heard about this Japanese brand but their products seem quite interesting!

Re: THE SUQQU THREAD | NEWS & DISCUSSION

@keana1 they're one of my absolute favourite makeup brands. I truly wish they were easier to acquire and available in North America so that more people could see how great they are.

 

Personally I think their Pure Color Blush is the best thing they make, but I really like the way they've managed to create a brand aesthetic that is colourful without being gaudy.

 

I'm also just a huge fan of one of the MUA who they regularly collaborate with for their UK releases. 

Re: THE SUQQU THREAD | NEWS & DISCUSSION

@Mochapj I agree their Pure Color Blush is beautiful!

Re: THE SUQQU THREAD | NEWS & DISCUSSION

Happy to see this thread! I read enough Japanese to be following the autumn launch, so I'm super into the theme... athough I haven't decided what to do about importing yet. Thanks @Mochapj

Re: THE SUQQU THREAD | NEWS & DISCUSSION

@fieldsofclover it's been in the back of my mind to create a few Japanese beauty threads for at least a few years but I honestly didn't think there were enough enthusiasts on BIC to bother, LOL.

 

That's probably still true, but at least the few of us who are here will have some place to aggregate information and swatches Smiley Very Happy

 

 

Let me know what (if anything) you end up picking up from AW18. I grabbed the 2 blushes and LE quad but am still debating whether I want either of the permanent ones, cuz they both look quite similar. I'm happy with the LE quad; it's really gorgeous and unusual, but less ecstatic with the blushes. They seem to be made of a gelee rather than the usual Pure Color formula and don't have as beautiful a pigment as I'm used to from the brand.

Re: THE SUQQU THREAD | NEWS & DISCUSSION

I've been thinking I'll get one or two of the liquid shadows... Koukizuki (光輝月, the gold one) for sure, and maybe one other. I like the new LE lipstick too, the pink one, but I'll only buy it if it's a semi-sheer, otherwise it will be too light on me.

 

I really like one of the new eye palettes (10, with the dark blue) and I could see myself using it to death, but since it's permanent I'm not in a huge rush. But if I'm going to go to the trouble of getting it from Selfridge's I'll probably get that and a blush too. I'm not sure yet whether I can get locally. @Mochapj
