Dear Ruby from Miaka Life and Loves and I are involved in a Project Swap. We live so close to each other that we are practically neighbours and I thought it would be a wonderful idea to swap products to swatch and try on so you dear readers are see two different views of how we see a product.
The first thing I wanted to get my hands on was Ruby's Suqqu stash. I love Suqqu products and what better way then to try more of them.
This is Kozuecha from the spring 2012 collection. This is also part of the permanent range.
When I opened this up I was for a moment going huh? It looked very similar to the Suqqu palette I owned, Himesango. They are very similar except for the lovely peachy gold shade found on the top left-hand corner of the palette and the different browns found on the right-hand corner.
Unfortunately, Ruby is now playing with my Himesango so I can't place these side by side for a comparison.
I notice that for the range of shadow palettes, there is always a creamy matte beige shade which is used as a base of the eye colours.
The textures and quality of this palette is exactly what I expect from Suqqu. They are creamy, pigmented and so so soft and finely milled. Such a pleasure to apply on my eye lids. I am in love with the peach gold shade. It brightens my eyes and gives it a kiss of peach gold warm. Love! I tell you.
Here is a natural day look I did with this palette.

The thing with Suqqu palettes are that they kinda feature similar shade ranges for the neutral palettes. They either lean more to the cool or warm side. You don't necessarily have to have many of these palettes. The colour differences are subtle unless you are going for the blues, greens and plum coloured palettes. I really love Suqqu palette and if you are into great quality products and don't mind splurging choose a Suqqu palette which you know you are going to reach often. You won't regret it.
