How I feel about Suqqu Foundation.

Hi friends! Today. On my face, I’m wearing Suqqu Foundation. To be honest, I’ve never heard of it until Jaime’s mother asked me about it because she purchased it. That means I had to research some stuff.

Outside of Japan, Suqqu is found in Japanese department stores. Mainly in Taiwan and Thailand. It can be found in the United Kingdom as well. The Japanese words, Suuqu-to means posture with attitude. Well. My my my. This brand strives to give women ways to help with self confidence and well being by taking care of their skin and herself. This brand is known for gankin, or facial core techniques. In Japan, facial massage is an important step in skincare. 

To be honest, it has taken me forever to look for a price on this stuff and I was way too polite to bring up a price in conversation. After combing the internet for a price, this foundation typically will run you around $66 to $100 depending on retailer, availability and if your shade is in stock or not. Thankfully, Jaime’s mother was nice enough to let me sample some of hers for my post today so yay! Here are some quick pictures of the product for you.

Here is a photo of the box. It is a very minimal black box that has barely any writing on it except for the embossed logo on the side and the sticker showing ingredients, shade number and website. The location of the company is also printed on the sticker.
Here is the top of the jar. All it has is the name of the company on a shiny black top. The bottle is made of glass.
Here is a side look to the bottle. It doesn’t look like there is a lot of product (which is why I felt bad taking any) but a little goes a long way.

Okay, so for today I went out for a few hours with my mom and wanted to text how this foundation held up with it being kind of warm outside today.

Before adding the foundation, I added Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer to my face. Just to keep it real, I used my Nomakenolife Lucky Wink foundation brush to apply the foundation. I followed the step to add a pearl sized amount to both cheeks and forehead. After that you dip into the foundation and stipple the area. After fully patted around, smooth it all out.
Here is what the foundation looked like with just the three drops I used. I kid you not. It didn’t take a while to dry down and completely covered my face.

Fast forward about 15 minutes…

Here is a quick look I put together to go out and test this foundation. My skin feels light and not weighed down. The foundation is very matte and my skin is breathing. Eyes are Lime Crime. Lips are Caked. Brows are Anastasia Beverly Hills.

That photo was also taken at 10:15 AM. Let’s see what it looks like at 2:45 PM…

Okay so here’s the look four hours and fifteen minutes later. The only thing to wear off slightly is the liquid lipstick. My face still feels matte and not greasy. I didn’t have to blot down my face at all or wipe at it. I’m pretty impressed with that just because I do have oily skin.

I do like the performance of this foundation. I’m happy that my face wasn’t oily or greasy as the day went on. If this wasn’t so hard to find or expensive, I would probably purchase some for myself. Xo
