Eye of the Day - Suqqu Ginbudo Blend Eyeshadow and Jet Bordeaux Eyeliner Creamy
I used the white (matte) all over as a base, the purple (matte) in the outer corner of my mobile lid and into my crease, the taupe shimmer on the rest of my lid and blended into my crease, and the sheer gold on my browbone. I would say these are noticeably more pigmented (apart from the deliberately sheerer shimmery gold) than most previous Suqqu eyeshadow quads, and a lot more pigmented than the Spring 2010 Kisui collection (although the Spring quads do often tend to be lighter and sheerer).
The Eyeliner Creamy gel liner is excellent; it gives a boldly coloured line, and thickness of the line is easily controlled with the brush. If you wanted to smudge it for a smoky line you would need to work very quickly indeed, but I personally prefer a smudgier pencil for that kind of liner look. The Suqqu gel liner lasts all day and does not budge or smudge until I remove it.
