Caution: Holy Grail alert here! SUQQU semi-recently released a new mascara: both regular, waterproof and a mascara base. I was kindly sent these items for consideration, so far I’ve been testing the Base and the regular Eyelash Mascara. I’ve loved SUQQU for years but I haven’t much ventured to the mascara territory, so I was delighted to try these! What do you think, should I do a brand overview now that I’ve tried most from the line?

About SUQQU Eyelash Mascara and Eyelash Mascara Base
SUQQU has named these mascaras simply, the brand often uses depicting titles without unnecessary marketing talk. Eyelash Mascara and its versions have replaced other mascaras in the line. Eyelash Mascara promises to combine “shine, density and long-lasting curl power” - I assume the density means volume in this case, shine making the lash looking healthy and wispy. The mascara comes in black, black waterproof and the Base clear/semi-transparent. Mascaras retail £29 and the Base £23.
Using SUQQU Eyelash Mascara and Eyelash Base
Not sure where to start, it’s been a while since a mascara product has blown me away (maybe Monsieur Big - review). For my medium lashes this Base is epic. It gives me everything: long-lasting volume, curl and separation. Some length of course, but I think this Base exceeds when it comes to giving the lashes thickness and volume, making them easy to separate and “style” before the Base sets.
The SUQQU Eyelash Mascara applies well on primed lashes, but I do recommend paying attention on application (roots, short or odd pokey lashes) as the semi-transparent finish is noticeable if you miss a spot. Once you’ve coated the lashes you can expect them to wear beautifully for the rest of the day. The lashes don’t grab together from the ends, no flaking or smudging during the day. I’d say the result is semi-waterproof, you do need cleanser to get everything off.
Alone the Eyelash Mascara gives beautifully long and deep black lashes, but some of lash tips may stick together if you’re not careful. Nothing a little combing can’t fix, but I think it’s worth mentioning. The mascara wears well, but the Base does improve keeping the curl and longevity. I’ve tested the Base with other mascaras and the best effect is with the accompanying SUQQU mascara.
I very much enjoy the Eyelash Mascara wand, which is cone shaped, doesn’t pick up too much product (not too wet) and fits perfectly near my inner and outer corners where I have shorter lashes. I wish the Mascara Base had the a similar wand, I often need a second pump to get enough product for one eye. I presume I will run out of the Base quicker than the mascara, but as it’s cheaper I don’t really mind.
In the pictures below my eyelashes are curled with *Tweezerman Lash Curlers (the best!).

The Eyelash Mascara Base and SUQQU Eyelash Mascara combo is a Holy Grail, top shelf, favorite quality. I will definitely purchase the Base once I run out, I have a feeling the mascara will last me longer and I am also testing its Waterproof version. Used alone the Eyelash Mascara might need some precision when applied, but not a bad choice if you like high end mascaras. It doesn’t beat my drug store favorite, Heroine Make, but I wouldn’t pass on the Base!
