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.
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.
Fast forward about 15 minutes…
That photo was also taken at 10:15 AM. Let’s see what it looks like at 2:45 PM…
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
Oh. My. These are cute! Dudes, I love Holika Holika. The brand is Korean and oh so cute. These blush and highlighters that I have to swatch today are so cute, I get all happy when I open them. I have Hello Holika #1 and Midnight Owl #2. These are hard to find and cost a pretty high amount, I’m not sure if it is because of rarity, but yikes! On Amazon, both of these go for $24 a piece. These are nice and colorful and then blend out to a nice shimmery sheen.
I used flash for the swatches of both of these and I used my finger to pick up more pigment because when using the brush, it is a very subtle sheen that is hard to pick up with a camera.
As you can see there are pigment differences between the two. They are nice but not if you are looking for a bold highlight. I do think they are a bit expensive but the design is adorable.
I tend to keep my mouth shut on a lot of topics. There’s usually a lot of drama around Jeffree due to things that he’s said and things that he done. One can go on and on about things but that’s not really the purpose of this post. The purpose is to swatch the palette and give my opinion. If you’re not a fan of Jeffree, you don’t have to read the palette review. If you are a fan and just curious about it, please read on.
This was the first palette that Jeffree released. It gets a lot of mixed reviews from what I read and hear. It depends where you stand on the drama spectrum. Some say that the shades are chalky and not pigmented. Others rave and say this is the best palette ever. And then thrown either some hate or praise to back up their comments. To be honest, I enjoy this palette and I found it refreshing. The price of this was $45 and for the size of the shades, it is worth the money. I enjoy unique colors and fun shades so I enjoy what was in it. The shades are pigemented and nice. Courtney is the best crease shade ever. Anyways, here’s the palette!
I did the swatches by row.
There you have it! I think the palette and the color selection were good. There’s something for everybody in here and a bunch of looks can be made with this one.
