Summer Collection 2008: Susie N.Y. Website Update



One of my very favorite brands from Japan has updated it's website with the latest Summer Collection. Susie N.Y. is a drugstore brand available in Japan that has a nice selection of cosmetics that really appeal to my sense of simplicity. I really enjoy the funky, fun colors released in the Summer!

Last Summer they released three dual eye color palettes in beautiful Summer shades that I really adored. Each palette contained a shimmering gold/silver glittery base and one solid, bold color. There was some debate over the fact that each palette contained the same exact base shade and how wasteful it was to purchase all three palettes for this reason. Even after the grave argument of whether it was worth shelling out cash for all three palettes with the same single base I ended up diving right in and purchasing all three (did you think I'd do anything different!? Come on now you know me!). The base is a really stunning shade and not only compliments the secondary color in the palette but other single colors I have! I'm actually happy I have three of the same shade as it's become a staple for me when I prep my eye area for a deeper, darker, shade of shadow!

Summer 2007 Releases










Gorgeous Base Color


As you can see from the above photos Susie N.Y. takes a note from Shu's simple, classic packaging. The Summer releases always seem to pop up in the same clear, plastic palette style which I adore (most of the other line sports the same packaging but larger forms such as the eye quads). The simplicity of the packaging is both practical and pretty to my eye and make for great storage as they are tiny and easy to stock in a bin!

This year Susie N.Y. has spiced things up with it's Summer offerings and is offering two different palettes. A few new nail colors were introduced as well but what really caught my eye were the new dual eyeshadow palettes. From what I can see on the site it appears the base this year is a cream and the main color is powder! The combination of a cream and powder shadow should be an interesting combo!

The palettes are entitled "Attracting Eye" and are available in two shades for 1,400 yen each (around $12 USD each or "£6 GBP) but it's safe to say they will be a bit discounted within drugstores.

The shades available are Miss No. 1 which is a deep rose pink powder and a complimenting lighter pink cream base and Daring which is a deep gold powder and a lighter shimmering cream base. The basic idea of each palette is to use the cream as a base and to line your eye with the powder but I think you can definately get creative with how you do up your eye with these! Who says we can't have fun right?





The model appears to be sporting Miss No. 1 and I'm really liking the fresh, rosy look they have created with this palette!



All in all this collection has shaped out rather well. I love smaller collections for the Summer as I have time to save money for the soon to be released Fall collections! Expect a review on these palettes from me shortly as they have made their way onto my wishy list!

Wanting these?

Love Susie N.Y.?

New to the brand?

It's called Susie NY and it's not even available in New York? Even if your name is Susie? What kind of @#%$ery is this?!?

There should be a rule, or something...
