Hi from holidays *waves*.
I would like to start by thanking to everyone from the bottom of my heart. Especially to those who left comments on the last post. I am replying them slowly, taking my time. It might have seemed like I needed some attention but it was really a moment of frustration when I started writing all about it. Believe it or not after about half an hour I even considered to delete the rant part of the post because I found it so unprofessional of me but even after a few minutes there were such sweet and encouraging comments from all around the world, it truly made my day. Blogging is a hobby for me, I never thought to make money from this but if I am putting so much effort into something everyone finds terrible, well, it was time to reconsider. Especially with the job change, but this is a topic of another post.
Instead today I have something very pretty for you. I have been cheering for Suqqu Fall Collection, you can read my previous posts here and here. Today's post is supposed to be the last post at least until I return from holiday and get my hands on the khaki palette which I am missing at the moment (can't sleep! ;-)). I am also eyeing the plump lipstick. Today it is about Suqqu Cheek & Face Colour Palette Ex-01 and the super gorgeous clear bordeaux lipstick Creamy Glow Lipstick #13 Akanebara.

Suqqu Cheek & Face Colour Palette Ex-01 comes in a two tier palette. The first layer has a brush for touch ups on the go. I believe the brush is made of goat. On the second layer the pan is divided in a beautiful way. Left side (denoted with #1 below) is Nuance Cheek Color to give a flush on the cheeks and the right side (#2) is Nuance Face Color to brighten up the face. Please excuse me for the super cheesy scenery with the flowers here but I couldn't help it when one of the peonies didn't want to bloom so tore it apart for the name of the blog as it seemed like the perfect color for this blush!

Suqqu blushes are usually soft and Suqqu Cheek & Face Colour Palette Ex-01 is no exception. Since my cheeks are usually without any flush and my complexion is light to medium, they all show nicely on me. Also I am not a lover of over blushing because it doesn't suit with my face shape, so I personally love that they show up just enough for a healthy flush of color and it is hard to overdo in the morning. It makes me loose up to 5 minutes if I overdo.
That said if you like more color on your cheeks or if you prefer your blush pigmented, these are no for you. Also starting from medium skin tone this would rather make a face powder but the blush might not show up. I swatched both shades separately and mixed. I like to use #2 for face and #1 show up nicely on me. I love the fact that #1 has a cool tone which is very close to my natural flush. Needless to say, I love this palette which fits to my complexion perfectly.

Here is a look which I will post the details about later this week. I am wearing Chanel Entralacs palette on Chanel Rouge-Gorge (review) base on the eyes. On my lips I have one of the Lancome Shine Lover shades, review is coming up soon. The texture of Suqqu Cheek & Face Colour Palette Ex-01 is very finely milled, buttery to touch but not powdery. It is a dream to work with. I recommend you check it out in case you think it shows on your complexion.

Now one of my favorite items of Suqqu Fall 2015 Collection, that lippie! *drums* Especially if you love moody shades but you are searching for something which is casual, easy to swipe and go, here comes your shade. Creamy Glow Lipstick #13 Akanebara (deep red rose) is a berry bordeaux with semi-matte finish and a certain transparency which can be build up but it makes it casual and chic. So in love with this one.

You have seen me wearing Akanebara in this FOTD together with Suqqu Blend Color Eyeshadow Ex-26 Yuuaoi in this FOTD. Since Akanebara is not too dense and opaque, it goes with almost all the eye looks without it becomes all too much.

Final thoughts: The texture of Suqqu Cheek & Face Colour Palette Ex-01 is a dream. If you are deeper than medium skin tone though, it might not show up on you. I am enjoying both the face and the cheeks colors on my complexion very much. Suqqu Creamy Glow Lipstick #13 Akanebara is one of my favorite items of this collection, along with Suqqu Blend Color Eyeshadow 20 Kaoribara. You can see me wearing them together here. If you can get your hands on this collection, I recommend getting both. Akanebara is casual, chic and perfect for Fall.
Availability: Suqqu Fall Collection will be released on the 14th of August at Selfridges and 28th of August at other stores in UK. Suqqu is available in-store at Fenwick of Bond Street, Harrods, Selfridges and Selfridges online.
