I’ve been wanting to try SUQQU’s new Pure Colour Blushes forever. They sold out quickly online at Selfridges.com when they first launched last year. I haven’t seen them come back into stock that often since. I was graciously given 07 Tsuyasatsuki by Belly aka Wondegondigo who was accidentally given two by SUQQU UK. Two days later I scored on Selfridges.com when 02 Hanachaori was in stock for like 3 seconds. Now all I have left to do is find 04 Urushibi and I’ll have all the ones I want. The blushes retail for $31.50 on Selfridges.com.
Details per Selfridges:
Hanachaori-Inspired by aka – the Japanese word for red – one of the oldest and most iconic shades to have existed in the Japanese language, SUQQU’s new AW16 collection is built upon a range of enlivening reds. The Pure Colour Blush comes in two beautifully gradated two tones – a subtle glow & a bright pop of colour. Formulated with translucent, finely-grained powder particles, it shows pure, true and vibrant on skin. An infusion of a generous amount of emollient oils allows a smooth, non-powdery finish.
Tsuyasatsuki-Using gradation to create extra-pure colouration and clear radiance, cult Japanese brand SUQQU has introduced new shades in to its Pure Colour Blush collection for 2017. Formulated with translucent, finely-grained powder particles, it shows pure, true and vibrant on skin as the shades gradate from a subtle glow to a rich hue. An infusion of a generous amount of emollient oils allows a smooth, non-powdery finish.
L to R: 07 Tsuyasatsuki, 02 Hanachaori:
Tsuyasatsuki is a bright raspberry red pink that melts into a light candy pink. The light pink end has a hint of shimmer but nothing big. Overall, it’s a matte to satin effect. The power is super finely milled, lightweight-it’s amazing. It’s a large size pan which is nice in a sleek, thin compact. The powder goes on like silk, is pigmented and blends like a dream. No powdery texture at all. I was afraid Tsuyasatsuki would be too raspberry for me, but it’s not a cool raspberry it’s warm which works better for my warmer skin tone. Start light with this one using a wispy brush, build up the intensity.
Hanachaori is a light shimmery warm bronze that fades into a light shimmery warm pink. It’s not frosty, but it’s more shimmery than a satin. This blush is more sheer than Tsuyasatsuki. Hanachaori is a bit too light to really wear as just a blush alone on my skin tone, but it looks fabulous as a top coat over a nude blush like Tom Ford Inhibition. It adds the most amazing warmth and shimmer as a top coat. This will show up as a warm yellow bronze on pale to fair skin tones. I love the formula it’s fabulous. I need more colors, and better availability online.
