Today I have a little surprise to show you: the Suqqu #14 Kosumosuiro!
Suqqu has recently launched 3 new quads (of which 1 will be limited edition) for fall 2012, together with 5 new l/s, 2 new limited edition duo blushes, a pink loose powder and a new eye balm.
You're probably wondering what's so special about these quads. Unlike the other permanent palettes, these 3 new quads have a cream eyeshadow in them which can double up as a liner too.
The texture of the green cream eyeshadow is very creamy and not difficult to blend with. It doesn't apply patchy but an eye primer is needed to make it last longer.
As mentioned before, the other shades are regular powder eyeshadow and have the same quality as the other Suqqu eyeshadows.
Texture is very refined and the shimmers (usually 2 of the 4 eyeshadows are shimmery while the other 2 are matte colors) in it are very subtle but gives a gorgeous finish nonetheless.

I did 2 look with this quad and I really find this to be a great everyday neutral quad with the dark forest green shade that will give a 'pop' to make the whole look less boring.
The first looks is a simple wash of the neutral taupe shade on the eyelid with the dark green cream eyeshadow as a liner.
For the second look I use the dark green cream eyeshadow as a base all over the eyelid. The pink color on the inner 1/3 of the eyelid and the taupe color in the outer 1/3 of the eyelid and in the crease as well.
The matte white shade I used as a highlighter under the eyebrows.
The Suqqu fall collection already came out in Japan on the 10th of August and will also be available in the UK at Selfridges on the 30th of August.
