Suqqu Blend Color Eyeshadow Ex-21 Murasakisuishou

suqqu eyeshadow quad limited edition fall ex 21

Picture dumpage time. I just got it today, so can't comment on application and wear. I will say though the colors are softer and sheerer than I expected. The right corner shades DO look different despite what swatches look like. Very fine shimmer in those two shades. Very pretty. :)

I finally got around trying some Rouge Bunny Rouge products. I was pretty sure I was going to be happy with RBR products because I heard raves after raves for them. I chose two of more "useful" colors and Periwinkle Cardinal because it's just pretty. ;)

Shiseido Luminizing Satin Eye Color Trio in GD804 Opera

Shiseido Luminizing Satin Eye Color Trio in GD804 Opera 
When I first looked at the color trio, I thought it wasn't going to work on me. But after hearing raves after raves, I looked up some EOTDs, it looked great on many many people with variety of skin tone. So I decided to give it a try.

My latest addition to Suqqu Eyeshadow stash. This is LE so this is another swatch post. I don't have much to say about it because I haven't used it yet but it seems smooth and pigmented from swatching. More so than 1-8 quads. Hope the swatches help! :)

Chanel Les 4 Ombres Quadra Eyeshadow in 39 Raffinement

Chanel Eyeshadow Quad in 39 Raffinement

Yes, there's the Chanel quad sitting on the ground. Lol. To be honest, I wasn't very drawn to this quad. It is a neutral quad after all. I just saw a lot of people loving this which made me go hmmm. Since there is nothing about this quad that looked like it wasn't going to work for me, I went ahead and got it. Right decision, I tell you.

I got totally sucked into buying this. When I first saw it, I thought "Pretty but what's the big deal?". This quad is a big deal in my life. It's one of my favorite quads. Many other glorious eyeshadows have entered my life but this still looks beautiful in my eyes.

EOTDs: Playing with Guerlain Coup de Foudre. Three Looks

When I first saw Coup de Foudre, I was like nope. So not me. Absolutely no interest in it. But I kept seeing beautiful EOTDs, and I was tempted. Over and over and over again. So I caved. Lol. I am not going to do a full review because it's hard to find in the U.S at this point. But it's super fun palette and I wanted to share how I've been playing with it! (I already put a dent in the coral. It's ridiculous) :D If you really want to be inspired, I recommend hopping over to drivel about frivol. Her looks are GORGEOUS and her pictures show colors sooo much better.

Anyways, I have three looks to share.

Look 1: 
Coral shade in the crease and inner corner.
Mint in the middle upper lid and inner half of the lower lash line 
Khaki on the outer half of lower lash line
Grey on the outer v

Burberry Sheer Eye Shadow in No. 21 Midnight Brown

I'm back with more Burberry. This was another raved product that I wasn't sure if I was going to like it or not. I usually love brown shadows. They don't look particularly good on me and doesn't excite me too much. But this one is rather beautiful so let's look into it!

Burberry Sheer Eyeshadow in No.22 Pale Barley and Comparison with Pink Taupe Palette

I absolutely love few Burberry eyeshadows that I have, and Pale Barley is the star. Unfortunately, Pale Barley has been missing everywhere. No worries though. I hear from here and there that it's coming back soon. :) Also if you can't wait, I have something similar in the Burberry line to show you. :) Not exactly a dupe but it looks very similar on the lids.

EOTD from the past: Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Quad in Parma

GA ETK Parma EOTD


A little EOTD I did a while ago. With a little wonky eye lining. Lol. I reviewed the quad here. I went with the "obvious" placement of shades. :) Hope you can get the idea of how it looks on the eye. I think it's a great work appropriate quad aside from brown shadows. :)

Edit: I definitely think matte shade changed texture over time. It's much more difficult to work with. :(

Fyrinnae Numero Uno

From left to right. Top Row: Immortality, Velvet Vampire, Bonfire Spirits, Witchy Woodland Creatures, Polar Bear, Pixie Epoxy
Bottom Row: Are You My Mummy? Shenanigans, Shinigami, Purgatory, Serendipity, Rapunzel had Extensions

So My picks were Arcane Magic: Velvet Vampire, Bonfire Spirits, Immortality, Witchy Woodland Creatures, Polar Bear, Shenanigans, Shinigami, Purgatory, Serendipity, and Rapunzel had Extensions all in mini sizes. They generously threw in Are You My Mummy? and Pixie Epoxy minis. Everything was packed fabulously. It seems like they have great customer service! 

I desperately need sun for the swatches so they will come at a later date. The loose shadows are not my thing, and these need to be pressed for me but pigmentation and powder quality is great! When I used a patting motions instead of swiping, there was minimal fall out. They do need to be on top of a sticky base for the full out color in my opinion. If you are used to and can use loose eyeshadows, I can't see any problems with these. 

Colors are very complex and they are very affordable so I highly recommend you check them out. :) And they have pressed shadows too!

Lastly, I will come back with how my pressing frenzy worked out once my binder and pans come to me.

Giorgio Armani Eyes to Kill Eyeshadow Quad in 8 Parma
 Second Giorgio Armani product review in a row!! It's that season, and I definitely took advantage of the sales and deals for products that rarely go on sale like GA! :) I got this with my VIB coupon at Sephora. Yes, there's Giorgio Armani at Sephora located at Times Square. :D It also has D & G makeup, so check it out if you can.
