Today's look was created using Suqqu's Blend Color Eyeshadow palette in Ex-11 Sumiredama. The star shade of this palette is that gorgeous, purplish-blue, duo-chrome eye shadow. I want to sing its praises from the top of Mt. Fuji...maybe one day I will :P Ex-11 Sumiredama (as well as Ex-12 Hisuidama and Ex-13 Ginusudama) is a little piece of eye shadow heaven, and if you can get your hands on it, do so!

Which palettes are you loving?

Looking gorgeous one lipstick at a time.


  1. woa! that's very nice! and loving the lipstick too! I always have a soft spot for these nudy beige colors!

    I am curious about the new lipstick range too!

    Are you getting the EX-14 color from this summer collection too?

    1. Same, I can never have enough nudy-beige lipstick, and this one has been receiving a lot of love from me lately!

      I play around with the new lipsticks, and they're great.

      I already picked up EX-14 ;)

  2. That is s-s-s-stunning on you! I love that duochrome effect on you, it's beautiful! Have I ever told you that you have wonderful lashes as well? Totally jealous *looks up at own spindly Asian lashes*

    1. This palette has been in heavy rotation for the last two weeks :)

      Th-th-th-thank for Bonnie! I'll trade you my lashes for your lovely Asian hair. Rain season is just around the corner and my hair will be a frizzy mess!

    2. Oh nooo my hair gets frizzy too and it goes wavy :( It's also rainy season here in Sydney - in fact, it poured today! But I'll still take those lashes :P

    3. Mine just becomes a giant frizzy ball, and I just want to shave it off.

    1. Thank you Pixie, Sumiredama is an incredible palette :)

  4. Looking good there Mrs G!!!
    When I saw the pic of a Suqqu palette, I was sure you were going to be show us the latest Ex-14 Ruridama :)
    Have you seen it IRL yet?
    I recieved my Addiction quads btw. Sugar Rusk is a real goodie, but Tuxedo Moon & Mudd Club will most definitely also get some wear.
    I feel sad that the shades of Soda Lunch weren't for me because I REALLY wanted that Basquiat dinosaur palette :(

    1. Why thank you Mrs. Bee ;)

      Hope you weren't too disappointed when you found it wasn't Ex-14 Ruridama.

      I purchased Ruridama a few days ago, but haven't used it yet. I did play with it at the counter and the colors are beautiful. If you like cooler toned shadows, you may want to look into this palette.

    2. Did you try any of Suqqu's bright up lippies?
      I'm loving Addiction's Sugar Rusk so much that I did my ususal 'panic' thing & ordered a back-up ;p
      I don't EVER want to be without the darker taupe colored shade and the matte one next to it. It's browner/ warmer than Flash Back & I LOVE it.

    3. Hi Buggsiebee :)

      I'll remind myself to get this eventually... or I might even go to Japan end of this year!

      And yes, would love to hear about the new Suqqu releases too!

    4. Buggsie-

      I tested them at the counter and they seem to have the same consistency and coverage as the creamy glow moist lipsticks. I need to revisit the counter and get a more extensive look/play with them.

    5. Bonnie-

      If you make your over here you better hangout with me!

      I'll see about picking up a few so I can post a review :)

  5. This palette is HG material and looks amazing on you!- have you had a chance to see or have u ordered the new Summer ex14 palette- would love some feedback:)

    1. Agreed, definitely a HG palette!

      I purchased Ruridama a few days ago. I haven't used it yet, since I need to take photos of the palette first. However, at the counter, I remember Ruridama had two satin finish eye shadows, unlike the 3 Spring palettes only offering one.

      Post coming soon :)

  6. Totally gorgeous...that eyeshadow shade is stunning!!

  8. I love that eyeshadow! I have a similar colour and,as far as I know, also MAC does one like that (Club), but I bet you already knew it!
    I'm so loving your blog. You conquered a new follower :)

    1. Hello and welcome Irene :)

      I've been obsessed with that shadow ever since I got it!

      Yeah, I have Club, but club is a brownish-red- green duochrome, where the Suqqu one is a purplish-blue, just divine!

      Thank you for the positive comment, and I hope you continue to enjoy So Lonely in Gorgeous :D
