When Suqqu released the Blend Color Eyeshadow in EX-20 Natsubotan (Summer Peony in Japanese) last Summer, I put it aside because the color arrangement didn't inspire me during the sweltering weather.

 Suqqu Blend Color Eyeshadow EX-20 Natsubotan. 

I finally cracked Natsubotan open a few weeks ago, and what a gorgeous palette it is!

I totally adore the plummy-brown shadow in Natsubotan.
