Suqqu Creamy Glow Lipstick No. 07 Asasuou Swatches and Review



I have been dying to try a Suqqu lipstick for ages. Knowing that this is probably one of the more expensive lipsticks around I needed to be sure I bought I colour I was going to love and use frequently. I had my heart set on getting a lipstick the moment I knew I was going to Bangkok. This sells for THB2300. But I was lucky to get a 10% discount and another 7% VAT discount, so that works up to about SGD $76. This goes for 27 pounds in the UK SGD $54 so please please buy from Selfridges instead.

There are two types of Suqqu lipsticks, the Creamy Glow that has been around for sometime and Creamy Glow Moist. The later being balmier and more sheer. I chose the Creamy Glow because I like a opaque finish. The shade range is more towards natural lip colours. Very wearable. I decided on Asasuou because it was a brighter colour.



It comes in a very sleek black metal casing. It weights about 3.8g.



Asasuou is a rose shade that is a MLBB for me. It feels cooling when I apply this. It is very creamy and has some slip to it. It feels almost decadent applying this, heavenly! Because it has quite a bit of slip, I prefer to wear this with a lip brush instead. Then I am sure I am not applying way too much product on my lips.

There is no need to wear a balm before applying this. It lasts about 3 hours of sipping water. This isn't the most long lasting lipstick.

Suqqu Creamy Glow lipsticks are high quality lipsticks that belongs to the ranks of Burberry and Giorgio Armani lipsticks with a price tag to match. Now that I have a taste of it, I want more!

My heart aches at the supreme high markup of Bangkok prices. I won't suggest you buy them there, it is better to buy at Selfridges instead.

Ratings: 4 lipsticks (because I paid way more that I should have for this)

  1. I like the color!
    The texture feels very creamy and pigmented but I passed because I think I am satisfied with my Burberry lipstick that costs lesser than this :)
