SUQQU Glow Touch Eyes Swatches (01, 06, 101, 102, 104)

I really like SUQQU’s Glow Touch Eyes liquid shadows. I can’t believe they launched already in October last year, how time flies! I’m on the same lines with my original review, which you can check out here. This post short and sweet is mostly just sharing swatches of the shades I’ve accumulated recently. Enjoy!

SUQQU Glow Touch Eyes

A quick recap if you missed the first post: SUQQU Glow Touch Eyes is a liquid or creamy liquid eyeshadow that comes with a lipgloss like packaging and a doe-foot applicator. The lasting power of these shadows (with an eyeshadow base) is very good, much better than SUQQU Deep Nuance Eyes (review). These shadows are available in 6 permanent shades and retail for £24 for 7.5g on Selfridges (my shopping place of choice).

Sadly some of these shadows were discontinued/not permanent, but they might pop on the Selfridges site.. Isetan and Umeda Hankyu sometimes have their own limited editions and they usually aren’t promoted in the UK very loudly, but do appear (late) on the online store. Anyway, I wanted to share them if you find something comparable from your collection or in the future releases. These shadows don’t tend to have multi-colored glitter or very deep nuances to them, but appear very pretty on the lid.

01 Ginzora: a white shimmery silver

06 Kiramomo: glowing peach with golden glitter

101 Teriaka (LE): Brown with burgundy undertones and golden glitter

102 Yukimurasaki (LE, Hankyu Umeda exclusive): Shimmery lilac lavender (more violet irl)

104 Kibudou (LE)*: Plum with slightly burgundy/purple undertones and light shimmer (this shade does not look like you are tired or have a black eye, in fact it’s very pretty!)

Have you tried SUQQU’s Glow Touch Eye formula? I’m currently obsessed with liquid eyeshadows, more reviews will be coming! Do you have a favorite formula or a color?

SUQQU Glow Touch Eyes Review and Swatches (01 & 101)

This Summer SUQQU had a colorful launch: 3 eyeshadow palettes, 2 limited edition blush duos, lipsticks and completely new product line: SUQQU Glow Touch Eyes. I was ecstatic as I love liquid eyeshadows (Armani, Rouge Bunny Rouge) and hoped that I'd have better luck with these shadows compared to SUQQU's cream formula.

SUQQU Glow Touch Eyes

These shadows are advertised as easy-to-wear, radiant and long-lasting. There are 5 permanent shades and 1 limited edition. From what I've seen online, all shades are shimmery with micro glitters. According to Selfridges' description the shadows are infused with moisturizing royal yelly extract and jojoba oil. Each Glow Touch Eyes shadow comes with 7.5g of product for £24 (~26.40€). Made in Japan.

Using SUQQU Glow Touch Eyes

I was jumping up and down from excitement when I saw the promotional pictures, but decided to restrict myself for only 2 shades and test the formula first. I chose the moonlight silver 01 Ginzora (銀空) and LE shade 101 Teriaka (照朱). It puzzles me why such a beautiful reddish copper shade was chosen to be the limited edition. I'm tempted to get the pink shade and maybe the light brown, but I wonder if it transfers too much like 'cat puke' color on me. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that SUQQU brings out more shades: I'd love to get a purple, a navy blue and perhaps a shimmery black!

The tubes are similar to SUQQU lip glosses, but the tubes are frosted and the doe foot applicator of Glow Touch Eyes is longer and slightly angled. The color and shine of the eyeshadow transfers beautifully through the tube, I find the frosted "glass" (it's plastic) with gold and black very elegant.

The texture of Glow Touch Eyes is a smooth, slightly runny liquid and very easy to spread on the eyelids. I like to do one swipe with the applicator and then use a goat hair brush to further spread and blend the shadow. Little product goes a long way and you only need one layer for a light yet opaque finish. It takes a minute or so for the formula to set, but I have not experienced any transfer to my upper lid.

They work excellent for layering with powder shadows: I like to do an eyeshadow primer (Rouge Bunny Rouge *gifted), a pale base shadow and shading for my crease (Viseart Neutral Mattes for example) before adding Glow Touch Eyes on my mobile lid and blending. After the liquid sets I've added more powder shadow to my outer corners for extra dimension. Quick, easy, no-brainer but the shading and Glow Touch Eyes' shimmers make it look like I had made an effort. The shadows wear excellent on my hooded lids, +8 hours without creasing or fading.

Overall thoughts

I love these shadows and they contest with Rouge Bunny Rouge, who have made my favorite liquid eyeshadows to date (review here). I do like Armani, but I prefer the bit thicker texture and sparkle of SUQQU and RBR. I try to contain myself and not buy every single shade, but the Hankyu limited editions tempt me a lot. As I said before, I wish that SUQQU will bring more permanent additions to this line as they’ve nailed the formula!
