These were the two items I purchased from the Suqqu Autumn 2010 collection. I was quite tempted by the Navy/Peach quad (01) and the Purple/Silver quad (04), but after discussion with the make up artist decided on the Plum/Gold 06 combination. The Balancing Cheeks is 03, the peach combination.
The picture below shows the texture of the eyeshadows a bit better. The bottom two shades are matte, and the top two are shimmery. The quads are designed to be applied clockwise from bottom right, as I wrote in my earlier post on the collection (base, main shade concentrated along lash and outer corner of mobile lid, highlight on browbone, blending shade on lid).
Swatched on my hand. The gold blends in with my skin, as does the ivory, but all these eyeshadows are more pigmented than I found those from the last collection to be (Suqqu often has lighter, more shimmery shades in Spring and darker, smokier looks in Autumn collections). The pigmentation is comparable to that of the Blend Eyeshadow Quads from Autumn 2007.
Eyeshadow and blush applied, with a Suqqu lipstick from Spring 2010 (EX 05) on my lips. The eyeshadow is a little darker/smokier in real life (the camera washes it out a bit) and can easily be built up for a more dramatic look.
