Suqqu Creamy Glow Moist Lipstick in EX-13 Beniaka

Never be fooled, my friends.  The lipstick in the bullet looks like fire.  Roars like a lion.
Applies like a lamb.
 I've previously posted on the Suqqu Creamy Glow Moist lipsticks before.  (EX-10 Tsubomidama here and EX08 Sangodama here.)  The Creamy Glow Moist formula has a sheer and yes, well, moist formulation.  Of the ones I have, they are definitely not very pigmented, but is nice when I want something that imparts just a slight bit of color with a glowingly shiny finish.
 Beniaka is a warm sheer rosy red.  This limited edition shade is available as part of the Autumn Winter 2013 release from Suqqu and is the shade worn by the model in the ad image.   On my own lips, its much sheerer and softer than appears in the ad below.
It is not a long wearing formula and requires frequent reapplication, but I have no problem pulling out the beautiful case to apply it during the day.
Unlike the regular black cases of the permanent shades, the limited edition cases from fall have a case that shifts color from purple to blue to pink.

 As an interesting little note, Suqqu is a brand offering of the Japanese cosmetics giant Kanebo.
I really enjoy the finish and feel of the Suqqu Creamy Glow Moist lipsticks, but I am not lacking sheer reds.  I do think this is generally superior to many of the other sheer red lipsticks I own.  It seems it's time to cast another critical glance at other sheer reds I own and start culling down.

What do you think of the limited edition items from Suqqu's AW 13 collection.  I see there is always a lot of internet buzz about the eye shadows (well deserved, by the way!), but much less about the lipsticks and face palettes.  This is seriously a lovely and easy to wear red.  Makes me wonder if versus other less expensive and easier to purchase sheer reds, if this is worth the chase?  What do you think?
