I don't find the collection concepts as interesting or attractive as they used to be.
This is the Spring Summer 2012 Summer Collection. I don't know if it has a collection name in Japanese (if any readers who can read/speak Japanese could tell me, I'd like to know) but in the UK it's going by the catchy title of 'Spring Summer 2012 Collection'.
However, with Suqqu, I'm comparing this Spring collection to these:
Spring 2008 Kirari - the reflection of light, as if the colours are seen through a layer of water.
The Blend Eyeshadow quads all had a colour with subtle sparkles in it at the top left, and I loved the Blend Cheeks Yanwaricha, which is a perfect contouring duo. The Blend Lipsticks in this collection were sheerer with shimmer in them, giving washes of orange, coral, pink and beige.
There are some lovely swatches and pictures of the new collection at Drivel About Frivol and Replica at Visionary Beauty has a post on Blend Colour Eyeshadow #10 Kozuecha which does tempt me to give it another look.
I don't think the collections have been as creative or intriguing since the line re-vamp in Autumn 2010, although Suqqu's popularity as a brand continues to grow. Do you agree, or do you prefer the style of the new collections?
