Suqqu Creamy Glow & Creamy Glow Moist Lipstick - Swatch Set

While the Suqqu eye shadow quads have some ardent fans (oh, such smooth beautiful textures!) as well as detractors (ugh, sheer as heck!), I believe the lipstick formulas are a bit more universally appealing.  As a matter of fact, for me personally, the Creamy Glow formula in particular is one of my very favorite of lipstick formulations.

When I first tried on one of these lipsticks, I had a revelatory moment: amazed that such a pigmented and opaque lipstick could feel so whisper light at the same time.  In addition to the incredibly pigmented colors, they have a lovely slip that helps the color glide on.  I'm not quite sure that I would call it moisturizing though.  I've come to conclude that my lips will never fully love pigment-rich formulas.  However, unlike say, Tom Ford lipsticks which actively seem to suck the moisture out of my lips, the Suqqu Creamy Glows feel slightly cushiony with a bit of slip.

The more lip loving formula is the Suqqu Creamy Glow Moist.  I have two Spring 2013 limited edition one and they are as emollient as a Chantecaille Lip Chic.  These are balmy and thicker in feel and also sport a more sheer pigmentation.
A lovely lot of Suqqu lipsticks

I thought it would be helpful to show swatches of the colors that I own.  Suqqu is so inaccessible to those of us living outside of the UK, Japan and Bangkok.  While we can buy them online, it's not easy finding a lot of pictures of these shades.  I own a small handful.  I hope these are helpful if you are looking to make some purchases.
 This bottom picture shows off the lovely glowing shine these lipsticks have.
None of the colors above have any shimmer.  Umegasumi is a peachy-warmed pink.  Keshiaka is a cool toned mauve pink.  Hiwada is a warm nude with a hint of brown.  Ichijiku is a warm, dark rich brick red.  Karakurenai is a cool clear and bright red.  Sangodama is a very light pale peachy pink with very light pigmentation.  Tsubomidama is a slightly warm sheer rose.

Have you tried the Suqqu lipsticks?  Are you a fan of the Creamy Glow and the Creamy Glow Moist?  Which colors are your favorites?
