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: RE: THE SUQQU THREAD | NEWS & DISCUSSION

@TraceyEB I knew one was coming because the UK typically gets an exclusive holiday and an exclusive summer collection but this is a little bigger than I was expecting!

Re: RE: THE SUQQU THREAD | NEWS & DISCUSSION

Interesting info on the UK exclusive releases @Mochapj. I'm fairly new to this brand and its launch schedule. Am glad there are multiple eyeshadow palettes in this release so there's a chance to get one. Getting one of the summer UK exclusive quads was crazy. Looking forward to seeing swatches for this collection.

RE: THE SUQQU THREAD | NEWS & DISCUSSION

And the pink 15th anniversary palette

Re: RE: THE SUQQU THREAD | NEWS & DISCUSSION

The 2nd one up from the bottom is so pretty, @Mochapj. The shimmers are so subtle, not flashy at all. I love the subdued aesthetic here!

Re: RE: THE SUQQU THREAD | NEWS & DISCUSSION

@eshoe I think all the shades in the 2 anniversary palettes are quite pretty but I must admit, I’m a bit confused by the decision to make both palettes monochromatic

A closer look at holiday collection - based on kaleidoscope designs

Re: RE: THE SUQQU THREAD | NEWS & DISCUSSION

The shimmers in that palette, @Mochapj!❤️☺️ The colors, the compact -just wow. So beautiful.

Re: THE SUQQU THREAD | NEWS & DISCUSSION

AW18 LE Designing Color Eyes palette 120 is BACK IN STOCK at Selfridges online.

RE: THE SUQQU THREAD | NEWS & DISCUSSION

Dropping this off - I’ve done a bit more testing with the glow touch eyes and I think with careful placement you can get them to blend together (03,04,05,101)

Re: RE: THE SUQQU THREAD | NEWS & DISCUSSION

Looks beautiful, @Mochapj!

Re: RE: THE SUQQU THREAD | NEWS & DISCUSSION

Thanks @TraceyEB @eshoe!

Re: RE: THE SUQQU THREAD | NEWS & DISCUSSION

Love your blending, @Mochapj!

RE: THE SUQQU THREAD | NEWS & DISCUSSION

First look at holiday

Re: RE: THE SUQQU THREAD | NEWS & DISCUSSION

Gorgeous collection and packaging!

RE: THE SUQQU THREAD | NEWS & DISCUSSION

@SilverBeet  a few other shots and thoughts  

 


I couldn't wait to see how the green looked so I took off my makeup to try it out for a few hours. It's a lot greener (this is a plus for me) than I expected, as I was assuming it would be a brownish olive tone. 

 

I first tried it all over the lid in the same manner I did with 101 yesterday and found the application similar.

 

I tried adding 101 to the outer v and blending the 2 together. I think this product is best as a one colour wash or perhaps a pat-on glitter topper. You can apply a colour in layers to increase opacity, but if you apply a second colour over top and then try to blend, rather than diffusing the 2 shades into each other, it seems to disrupt the original. I would assume this means the product dried down before the second colour was applied. 

 

Regardless, I think the colours I have are lovely, even if only for 1 colour eye looks.

Re: RE: THE SUQQU THREAD | NEWS & DISCUSSION

@Mochapj 101 is such a beautiful shade of green! Thanks for the swatch!

Re: RE: THE SUQQU THREAD | NEWS & DISCUSSION

A lovely green and not at all as deep as I expected.

Re: RE: THE SUQQU THREAD | NEWS & DISCUSSION

Love those colors blended together, @Mochapj. I haven’t done an olive eye in awhile, what color liner (if any) do you pair with this? I would gravitate toward brown, but I imagine an shimmering aubergine would be a little more eye-catching. Thanks for taking the time to share this.

Re: RE: THE SUQQU THREAD | NEWS & DISCUSSION

Thanks @eshoe !

 

i think there are quite a few colours that would pair well. A burgundy/aubergine would  provide good contrast. A gold or bronze shade would be more of a complementary colour scheme that would pick up on the golden tones in the green shadow. Chocolatey browns would be a more daytime appropriate option and even a deeper forest green could be nice for a tonal look.

 

i think most shades would look good since both the green and brown shadows I used are fairly neutral; I’d probably just avoid anything too light (no whites or beiges) or bright (pastel or neon tones)
