Suqqu Blend Color Eyeshadow in 01 Kakitsubata & Creamy Glow Lipstick in 01 Saebana

SUQQU Blend Color Eyeshadow in 01 Kakitsubata

I took 2 really detailed photos with Nikon D90.
Top left is a peachy beige and next to it is a light golden brown and they have fine shimmers.
The blue and cream is matte.
I think the 2nd photo is what it actually looks like in person.

I hope this helps anyone who is looking to buy this palette as I think some of the photos online are not showing the colors as they are in person. I find most photos makes the blue color bright and more saturated than it is in person so it can be misleading. When looking at it in person it looks quite dull and not a bright color at all. Just keep that in mind.
Also I don't know if these colors will apply the same on everyone.

SUQQU Creamy Glow Lipstick in 01 Saebana

This lipstick photographs quite different depending on the camera.  Really pink on HTC mobile and semi true to color on Nikon D90.

It has micro shimmer.  So fine that you can't feel it on the lips.
This is not very pigmented and I don't think you can or should build this color up on the lips as the texture is so buttery and it feel like wasting product.  It gives a my lips but better look to ladies with naturally pale lips. Very moisturizing and there is no scent or horrible taste to this so I think this is a winner just for those 2 qualities.  After a few minutes the lips become very full and soft looking.  This is definitely HG material for me.  If you like matte and dry textures then this is not for you.

This is probably a Dior Addict Lipstick but more expensive.  Suqqu is 3.8g and Dior is 3.5g.
I think I prefer the packaging for this because it's so slim while Dior is quite bulky.

Shiseido Foundation brush 131

This is a great brush... I have 3 of them.

Most brushes eat up your foundation instead of helping you spread the foundation thinly and evenly.
This brush helps you achieve that my skin but better look.

Works well with powders, liquid, bb cream.  However thick creams are not so great.

Lunasol Water Gel Foundation

I got this in OC02.
It is a bit pale but not crazy pale, bearable after bending.

This is for people that don't have dry skin.

I have to say, the dewy finish that people keep raving about is not from this foundation but from the skincare they had already applied.

Innisfree Mineral Melting Foundation

This is shade 4.  It's ok but I think shade 4 is for NC30.

This feels like a creamy lipstick.
It's very difficult to remove yet slips off blemishes.

This photo was taken after I tried to smooth the surface with a plastic sheet and I pulled it off.  This might tell you something about the texture.

Shiseido Nourishing Mascara Base review

It holds a curl. Does it so well that I can use any non waterproof mascara over the top and it'll be ok.
For better results preheat your eyelash curler with a blow drier and then curl your lashes.

Only downside is that you have to use makeup remover to remove the mascara if you use this base.

This helps mascara's stick to my lashes.  For some reason most mascara can't grip onto my lashes and it looks uneven without this.
