I thought I’d dedicate a separate post to SUQQU’s Summer 2016 lip colours and swatch all the shades together since both this season’s new Colour Balm Crayons and Creamy Glow Moist Lipticks actually appear quite similar at first glance.
Essentially all four shades fall into two camps of either pink or orange, but in swatches and on my lips they are four very distinct tones.
The limited edition Colour Balm Crayons are new to SUQQU’s lip lineup and come in two colours: EX-01 Suzubeni, a sheer neutral red which lent my lips a flattering rosy hue, and EX-02 Tsuyasango, a very sheer peachy-nude which added a warm tint to my natural lip colour. Both crayons somehow manage to feel balmy and hydrating on my lips while maintaining their chubby pencil point (i.e. not smooshing). I have a real weakness for tinted twist-up balms, so I hope SUQQU makes these permanent! I’d love to see these in a sheer berry or burgundy for fall, wouldn’t you?
The Creamy Glow Moist colours for this season are EX-20 Hyaku Daidai, a copper with a golden shimmer and EX-21 Sen Ka, a vivid blue-based pink. Both of these limited edition shades are super pigmented compared to the rest of the CGM line, but no less silky feeling on my lips. While EX-21 Sen Ka is exactly the kind of colour I typically gravitate towards, EX-20 Hyaku Daidai is infinitely more unusual. I don’t think I have another colour quite like it, and because it pulls ever so slightly earthy on my lips I’m excited at the prospect that it might be a lovely fall colour as well.
