My latest obsession is the Suva Beauty eyeshadow palette by Vancouver makeup artist and friend Shaina Azad. There’s a lot to like about this super-sized, 30 shade eye shadow paint box. 15 mattes and 15 shimmers which are in two separate removable palettes, of highly pigmented colour (including Shaina’s Pantone 2015 colour prediction Marsala) give you endless options for creating looks that go way beyond eye makeup.
The wearability is excellent. When I wear the shadows myself there’s no creasing, smudging or fading thanks to a combination of key ingredients including Stearates. Stearates are not water soluble and therefore act as a built-in primer. A special process of mixing was also introduced to create the velvety butter finish of the shadows. The mattes blend well without losing intensity and the frosts feel silky and look highly reflective without the use of large frost particles.
