Suqqu Liquid Foundation Aqua

When I first used this foundation without a primer, it promptly sunk into every pore on my face. However, strangely, the finish when I checked my reflection in the rear vision mirror that day was absolutely stunning, and persuaded me to try it again.  With a primer, this really is a beautiful, light foundation, which stays out of pores. Shade 15 was a little too dark for me, but 10 is perfect.

You only need the tiniest amount of product to cover your whole face, and it feels exactly like applying a tinted moisturiser. As it’s so pigmented, this foundation covers everything it needs to cover (probably light to medium coverage) but still looks like skin. What I really love is – unlike some foundations and tinted moisturisers – it leaves a great lively finish to the skin without looking too dewy.  I can’t stand the look of a dewy face and a matte neck and chest. This foundation makes your skin look alive, healthy, and natural, without looking like your face and chest don’t match.

I apply my trusty Chanel Poudre Universelle Libre over my t-zone when wearing this, which is standard procedure for any foundation or tinted moisturiser I wear. I’m looking forward to trying this out in summer.  With such a small amount of product needed and such great, long-lasting coverage, I think this might be a winner.

Girls in England can check out their local Suquu counter, but for the rest of us, Suqqu Liquid Aqua Foundation is available from for around USD $100 including shipping. I’m really interested in trying their Suqqu Foundation too, which provides fuller coverage.

    Suqqu is so on my wish list but I cringe everytime i see the price!!
    What shade are you in MAC? I have an Hourglass foundation in #1 I bought which has pink tones (ie. doesn’t suit me) that I’m trying to find a better home for!

    Oh I know! It is very expensive, but you do use the tiniest amount when you use it. I’m about an NC15 in MAC, 20 Clair in Chanel, and I think the 10 in Suqqu is a good match 🙂

    I owe you an email on this! Sorry, work has been manic. I find 10 a better match for me than 15 too, which can turn a little yellow on me.
