Suqqu's Summer 2015 limited edition Eye Color Palettes in EX-01 Benikakesora and EX-02 Yosaizora (my first trios from the brand), were a refreshing aesthetic (and monetary) twist from the usual quad collection releases. And, today post is all about EX-01 Benikakesora (red tinted sky in Japanese).
I love when mirrors share the same length, and width, of the palettes they're housed in.
I had pre-ordered both trios sight unseen...risky, I know, but I like to live on the wilder side of beauty.
After the usual, googly-eyed, response of seeing both palettes in the flesh, those initial affections turned into a severe crush as I swatched them.

A medium-peach, with a coppery-golden sheen and satin finish.
A semi-sheer white loaded with micro-shimmer.
I accompanied Aki to an informal work-related event yesterday, and this is the look I wore:
Don't worry, my hair is still golden olive. It's just this reddish hue.
