Not long before I get the Suqqu #14 Kosemusuiro palette, these pretties arrived in my mailbox.
They are the Suqqu EX-07 Tsukiakari palette and the EX-02 Mizumomo duo blusher from the fall 2012 collection.
Looks familiar doesn't it? It's reminds me a lot of the Suqqu Konruri and the Kakitsubata palettes.
Tsukiakari is more simular to the Konruri because of the following: they have both a taupe and a peachy shade in it while Kakitsubata has a bronzy shade in it and no peachy color.
Simular to the #14 Kosumosuiro palette, there is also one cream e/s in this palette that can be used as a base all over the eyelid or as a liner to give a little 'oompf' to your eyelook.
The textures of the powder eyeshadows in this palette have the same texture as the other Suqqu eyeshadows.
Even if you don't find the colors that unique, the texture and finish of Suqqu eyeshadows are unlike all other eyeshadows I have tried so far and worth every penny.
Here are some swatches that I did, one in natural lighting and one indoors to give you an idea of the colors.

Do I think Tsukiakari is worth it? If you don't have Konruri this quad is definitely worth it. Although it looks simular to Kakitsubata, the shades are different enough to justify getting both.
Next one is the Suqqu EX-02 Mizumomo duo blush.
This duo blush has a cool bright pink shade and very pale milky pink shade.
As you can see the pale pink color is almost white on me so it works better as a highlighter on me or you could also mix it with the brighter pink shade to get a more diffused color on your cheeks.

I used the navy blue cream eyeshadow as a base all over the eyelid, the taupe color in the crease, the peachy shade in the inner 1/3 of the eyelid and the matte white color as a highlighter under the brows.
The eyeshadow palette cost £45 and the duo blush cost £38. Both Tsukiakari and Mizumomo are limited edition .
Suqqu is only available at Selfridges in the UK or at the counters in Japan and Thailand.
