[ (Quick) COMPARISON ] SUQQU Blend Cheeks (03 しゃなり桃) & Noble Nuance Cheeks (EX-01 桃添)
24 March, 2010 § 8 Comments
I haven’t tried either of these yet, so a proper in-depth comparison (and swatches) will have to wait till some other time. (●´ω｀●)ゞエヘヘ
EX-01 Momozoe is limited edition and part of this year’s Spring collection. I’m not sure if it’s still available. 03 Shanarimomo is part of the permanent lineup. They’re both peachy pink shades with accompanying pale peachy layering shades, and as is obvious from the photo, look very, very similar in the pan. ｳ･･ ｳﾝ(-ω-｀;｡)
The most visible difference between them is the shimmer in the blush side of Shanarimomo, while Momozoe looks matte in the pan. The shimmer isn’t as chunky as, for example, NARS Super Orgasm, but it’s definitely visible in the pan. The lighter shades in both cheek palettes are non-shimmery.
Shanarimomo looked a tinge peachier to me, whereas Momozoe seemed slightly more muted. But the camera isn’t picking up on the difference so it has to be very subtle! ((´∀｀*))ヶﾗヶﾗ
Also, the lighter shade in Shanarimomo is darker and has more peachy undertones than the corresponding pan in Momozoe.
I do think they resemble each other enough it’s not necessary to have both, but maybe I’ll be surprised when I actually use them. The concepts behind the Blend series and Noble nuance series differ so I’m hoping that will translate into the end effect. (I wish.)
