This creamy matte lipstick spreads smoothly and gives a brilliant, vivid shade just in one application. It combats against signs of ageing such as dullness and fine lines, whilst enhancing an enlivened, healthy look for both your lips and overall skin.
There are a total of 6 permanent shades available.
A dear friend of mine (thank you K!) was visiting London and she offered to get me some Suqqu. Even though I wanted to get my hands on one of the Christmas makeup kits I resisted and got the new Bright Up Lipstick instead. I made it hard for her and asked her to pick a shade for me instead of choosing one for myself because honestly I couldn't decide. She couldn't have picked a better shade. Hanabeni suits me to a T.
The Bright up Lipstick is very similar to the Creamy Glow lipstick in size. Both have a sleek black casing except of the shiny metal ring that differentiates the Bright up from the Creamy Glow.
Hanabeni is a warm pink on my lips. It is emollient and glides onto my lips easily. It feels hydrating too. Gorgeous formula. Wear time is slightly short. It lasts about 3 hours on my lips with sips of water but didn't survive a full meal. After removal, my lips still feel soft and supple.
I have Creamy Glow lipstick swatched on top and Bright Up swatched below. As you can see, Bright Up has a semi sheer formula whereas Creamy Glow is fully opaque. I like both formulas but it is a pity that Suqqu has decided to discontinue the Creamy Glow formula. I really love it.
I paid about SGD $50. It sells for 27 pounds at Selfridges which incidentally ships to Singapore. They still have the Creamy Glow lipsticks stocked.
I honestly don't mind shelling out SGD $50 for this lovely lipstick. Considering the fact that most of the luxe lipsticks are priced somewhere in the region. I love all the wearable shades too.
