I adore the pairing of Suqqu's EX-26 Yuuaoi Blend Color Eyeshadow, 12 Benihachimitsu Creamy Glow Lipstick Moist, and  Ex-01 Mizudaidai Gradation Cheeks (released in Fall 2012. Kicking myself for not buying a backup).

Every single shadow of EX26 Yuuaoi is a dream. At first, I had reservations about the cream shadow, but after applying it on my lids, I was soon eating my hat. The cream base looks stunning on its own, under or over eye shadows, and even as a highlight; absolutely gorgeous, folks.

Color description from left to right:

EX26 Yuuaoi:

A soft, warm, peachy-pink with a shimmery, pearl finish.

A mid-toned, warm, bronzed-copper-rose with a shimmery, pearl finish.

A mid-toned navy blue, with multi-colored micro-shimmer and a semi-matte-satin finish.

A soft, pink-undertoned, ivory cream shadow with a gold sheen.

12 Benihachimitsu Creamy Glow Lipstick Moist: a muted, coral-peach with brown undertones.
