Welcome to the Block Party by Suva Beauty

SUVA BEAUTY is a world brand that’s available in 30 diverse countries. It was created by Shaina Azad, a cheeky makeup artist who isn’t afraid to have fun with cosmetics. SUVA Beauty takes its name from the vibrant and lush capital of Fiji.
The Block Party collection has a 10 shade eyeshadow palette and two new Hydra FX shades in a UV finish and one Hydra Liner shade in a matte finish. All are packaged in beautiful and fun holographic packaging. Let’s see the fun that SUVA Block Party is all about.

MARCIA IS SHARING THE SUVA BEAUTY EYESHADOW PALETTE ($30)

SUVA Block Party Eyeshadow Palette

SUVA Beauty isn’t a brand that I’d probably stop to look at but now that I have it I find most of the shades user friendly. As an over 50 year old brights like the ones in this palette don’t grab me in stores yet now that I’ve used this I’m pleasantly surprised. The shadow collection has 10 shades that are either buttery light reflecting formulas or bold and fully saturated mattes. The palette itself is a heavy duty cardboard with a mirror and has a magnetic closing that makes it easy to use.

SUVA Block Party Eyeshadow Palette

SUVA names each shadow right on the cardboard making it easier to remember what you like and what you use. Here are my descriptions of the shades
.
1. Milkshake  – smooth creamy white
2. Flash Mob  – sparkly pink with some peach tones to mellow it out
3. Lemonade  –  a glass of matte bright yellow lemonade
4. Boombox  – a perfect dark teal matte that’s loaded with pigment
5. BBQ  –  is it purple? is it brown? or is it a satiny combo?
6. Popsicle  –  grape at its finest; if you’ve been looking for a purple eyeshadow this is IT
7. Drunk Love  –  hot pink matte that’s one of a kind
8. Mix Tape  –  green lovers rejoice, this is a beautiful light teal green with a touch of shimmer
9. Nachos  –  a brilliant orange, just like that cheese on ball park nachos
10. Dancing Shoes  –  matte dark navy verging on black

SUVA Block Party Eyeshadow Palette

As with all palettes some shades are favorites while others I’ve avoided so far. As a warning #4, Boombox, can stain your lids so be sure you use a primer first. I also found a little staining with #7, Drunk Love. Even though there are some shimmery shades I’d actually say they are more metallic than anything else. My personal favorites are 2 (peach), 5 (brownish purple), 6 (popsicle), 8 (light teal green), and 9 (orangey peach). Notice that they are the metallic ones since that’s what my taste is like.

I am pleasantly by a few things: 1. How strong the pigmentation is. 2. How easily they apply without leaving patchy spots. 3. The longevity of wear and 4. the price. At $30 this is less money than their previous palettes.

LISA IS SHARING THE SUVA BEAUTY HYDRA LINERS ($12)

I love a good cake eyeliner, and Suva Beauty has some fabulous options with the Hydra Liners in three different finishes – matte, UV, and chrome.  I have one matte and two UV to show you today.  I have to admit that at first I thought they were gel eyeliners that had dried up…I was so sad because the colors were gorgeous!  Then I realized these are water activated, which means they are NOT waterproof.  However, they are completely smudge proof, and if you want to make them waterproof you can use a waterproof setting spray.  Take a look at this quick video which shows how to apply the Hydra Liners.

The Hydra Liners are excellent eyeliners because go on super smooth and have incredible pigmentation.  They don’t crack or smudge, yet they are easy to remove.  You can also use them for body art, but again use a waterproof setting spray for that since you’ll want to guard against sweating.

Suva Beauty Hydra Liner in Tracksuit

Suva Beauty Hydra Liner in Grape Soda

Two of my shades, the limited edition Tracksuit and Grape Soda are UV so they glow in the dark, making them especially perfect for body art, costume wear, or night out makeup.  Tracksuit is a fabulous royal blue, and Grape Soda is a wonderful red toned purple.  They both have a colorant that is not approved for the immediate eye area in the United States but is approved in Canada & the E.U.

FEATURES:
Bright & intense pigmentation
Smudge proof
Transfer resistant
Opaque formulation
10 grams (0.35oz) of product

Suva Beauty Hydra Liner in Freezie

My third shade is the limited edition Freezie, a cool matte teal.  This isn’t UV but I swear it also glows in the dark!  This is an intense shade that is really gorgeous.  I have been experimenting with lining my upper lid with my bright Hydra Liners and lining my lower lid with black or brown, and I’m loving Tracksuit and Freezie paired with black and Grape Soda paired with brown.

Suva Beauty Hydra Liner swatches

There are 20 different vibrant shades available, so take a peak – the chrome shades look really cool too.

If you like products that are out of the norm SUVA Beauty should be on your radar. With Halloween coming up you might want to move beyond, into colors that really show your wonderful sense of creativity.
