Wishing you all a wonderful week. I started with a lovely Spring Collection Event today, you might have caught me posting in Instagram once again. Until I am finished with the exams week and eventually correct them, I will be posting sporadically but then again there are so many lovely items I would like to write about, so you might be hearing from me sooner than later. I was asked if I have Suqqu Spring, yes I have a few products here and I can't wait to share my thoughts with you. There are new eyeshadow palettes, woohoo! I am also trying to order some more to show swatches and eye looks of all the new palettes. But before that here is about the holiday palette I was enjoying recently, Suqqu Christmas Makeup Kit A in Suouiro. By the way would you like me to post some looks with Ex-35 and Ex-36 for those who have them?
This year's holiday collection had two lovely palettes that come with a gloss in a make-up bag in a set. One of them was navy themed and the other one, Kit A was gold and coral. You know how much I love a rabbit eye so I knew Suouiro had to be mine. It turned out though, it is not that much of a rabbit but more of a twist in neutral. Intrigued?

Packaging is sleek and chic because this is what Suqqu does. The palette has three eye shadows, a highlighter and a blush. The set also has a matching gloss and a make-up bag. I think this year's make-up bag had been the best released by Suqqu so far. I got a good use of it by stashing some of my Suqqu products, those I was using frequently and happily reach that in the morning when I don't have time to search them one by one. Make-up bag has honey comb design because that is the theme of this set.

You can also see the honey comb design partially on the coraly pink eye shadow and blush. It looks pretty but makes me want to avoid destroying the pattern and hop around the pan with my brush. Crazy times.

The shades are very unique. In my million eye shadow stash, I have nothing like that coral/pink shade. It is vivid yet very natural. It also combines beautifully with the neutral deep taupe to make it even more wearable. Golden shade was a little bit of a confusion for me. It is not glitter but doesn't show up on its one either so I ended up patting that on the other shade and it gives a very low key but complex sparkle to the look.
Highlighter is matte and since it is very light, it does the job wonderfully while not turning you into a disco ball. It is also not that harsh and white but more off-white/cream. Blush is superb, a neutral pink that would flatter many skin tones and the rather warm looking gloss completes the look in a surprisingly well fashion.

When I say unique, vivid and neutral at the same time, that is a weird combination but look at this and tell me if I am off. It is very pigmented but doesn't make you rabbit eye. I simply can't remember having any shade close, ideas?

Here is the complete look with lip gloss, blush and highlighter from the set. You can see that although lipgloss swatches very warm, on my lips it is rather neutral like the rest of the shades. I love how eyes, cheeks and lips harmonise. Big fan, could you tell?

Final thoughts: Probably now very hard to get but in case you have a chance, don't miss. The palette represents a truly unique harmony of neutral pink that are so wearable and chic.
Hands up, who got this one?
