Suqqu Frame Fix Foundation Lightness SPF 30


In UK, I think Suqqu is most known for their cheek brush because it’s almost a staple in Lisa Eldridge videos! Closely behind are their Liquid Eyebrow pen and their moss green eyebrow powder. But no one really talks about their other makeup items nor their skincare… Recently I was in the market for a new foundation and feeling spendy, so I popped into Selfridges to try their Frame Fix Foundation Lightness SPF 30, and it’s a whopping £58! (eeek..!)
I was interested in this foundation because I saw a Hong Kong beauty blogger Hakme mentioned it in her Japanese Haul. The colour range of Japanese foundation should suit my Chinese skin quite well. I was also attracted by its highly moisturizing formula and built-in SPF.  I was matched up with Shade 003, which I thought is a perfect match to my skin tone.
I would say it is a light foundation with medium coverage. Give the bottle a good shake before use. One gentle pump (don’t need to press all the way down to a full pump) has enough coverage for my whole face. The texture might not seem as light when you first pump the product out, but it can be sheered out very thinly yet there is still enough pigment to get some decent coverage.

I feel that my face looks flawless yet natural. I don’t feel the need to use concealer. It has a brightening and luminous finish. It is not glowy or dewy, it is not matte neither. It makes my skin looks naturally flawless and healthy.
At the counter, the sales lady applied it with her fingers, which I followed the same at home. Then I tried with brushes, and I found that Bobbi Brown’s Full Coverage Face brush gives almost the same flawless finish as applied with fingers. 

I will set this foundation with a powder – and I think the Hourglass Ambient Lighting powder is the perfect to this foundation as it adds some subtle luminosity to the skin.

The lasting power is not bad too. I put my make up on normally at 7.30am, when I finish work at 6pm, most of the foundation is still visible on my face. If I were to go out after work, I would probably use half a pump to top up and freshen up my look.


£58 for a foundation is no doubt a lot of money. However, I do think it is worth the price tag. I cannot put this foundation down since I bought it, and I really look forward to use this foundation every morning.
