Purchase Review + EOTD SUQQU EX-07 Tsukiakari

A few months ago I had purchased some items from a blog sale and one of the items that I got was SUQQU EX-07 Tsukiakari eyeshadow palette.

I had heard many good things about SUQQU so I am excited that this is my first and only SUQQU palette. It appealed to me because it isn't strictly a brown eyeshadow palette but also has a peachy-pink and off white powder shadows and a navy cream shadow/liner. I don't tend to look well with warm tones and especially brown shadows but I have been really liking this palette a lot. The powder shadows are soft and buttery and nicely pigmented.

For my EOTD, these are the products that I used:

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion
SUQQU EX-07 Tsukiarari
MAC Deep Secret from Mystic Cool Eyeshadow Palette
K-Palette Real Lasting Eyeliner

I applied the peachy-pink color over the entire lid from lash line to just above crease line. The brown shadow was applied from the outer end of the eyelid and blended in toward mid eye, concentrating the color mostly on the outer 1/4 of the eyelid. Using K-Palette, I lined the upper lash line of the eyelid and the outer corner of the lower lash line. The navy cream shadow was applied to the outer "v" and to the outer 1/3 of upper lash line. I don't normally like to use cream shadows since it doesn't work well with the Mezaik Double Eyelid Stretch Fiber but since I'm applying it to just the outer "v" and lash line, it has worked okay. Deep Secret is applied to the line the lower lash line going over the K-Palette and fading it in toward mid eye. Deep Secret is also applied over the Navy cream shadow to the outer "v". Using a fluff brush, I blend the edges of the "v" to soften the color a bit. I then lightly applied more of the brown shadow to blend the colors in even more.

With the blue, it brings in a cool tone color which helps to offset the warm tones and thus I think this is what helps make this eyeshadow palette work on me. You can create an evening look by not blending out the outer "v" so much and keeping it darker. For the last month or so, I have been reaching for this palette and Urban Decay Anarchy Face Palette almost every day.
