review: suqqu 06 ginbudou

December 30, 2015

Though not itself a new addition to the SUQQU family, #06 Ginbudou is quite new to me. Adam surprised me with it on Christmas Eve by tucking it under my pillow. This man, he is a keeper.

Ginbudou is part of SUQQU’s older series of eyeshadow quads (#01-06) which still employed the ratio of 2 shimmers on top and 2 matte colours on the bottom in each combination. Ginbudou is comprised of a frosted nude, a shimmery silver, a dark matte plummy-purple and a matte white.

As with all SUQQU quads, the magic of Ginbudou materialises when you start mixing the colours together. Aside from the colours above, you can also create a beautiful taupe, a golden violet and a really gorgeous purple-silver “duochrome”. But I’ll get to that in my next post.

For this first look I thought I’d keep the colours pure, so to speak.

I went with a very classic placement: silver lightly all over the lid, the matte purple in the outer V, and the pale gold/nude concentrated in the inner V and also washed over everything to blend.

    Hey! It’s so great to find your website! I am also a suqqu lover and Ginbudou is my favourite eyeshadow plate. I like your makeup, it’s so natural and beautiful. By the way, I admire your eyebrow so much. 😉

      Thank you so much for your lovely comment Sophia! Ginbudou is really such a gorgeous palette…I love how it can easily produce both subtle and dramatic looks. As for my eyebrows, the trick is to be really lazy about grooming!
