Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Does anyone have a swatch of the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea in porcelain and fair neutral?

 

I just bought fair neutral but I'm wondering if porcelain would have been a better choice :/  I cant seem to find comparisons of the two

Aarg! I really could have helped you but I dropped my bottle of porcelain on the floor and it shattered. RIP.

That being said, porcelain is the lightest shade I have ever owned, and I'm verrry pale. It ended up being even a tad too light and I mixed two drops porcelain to one drop fair neutral.

Porcelain in about two shades lighter and has a lot more yellow to it, but with almost a white base.

If anyone has both Naked Heat and Too Faced Sweet Peach, would you be willing to post some comparisons? I can't quite tell, but it looks like there may be some definite similarities with a few of the shades. If it's already been posted by someone and I missed it, I'd love the link so I can take a look! Thanks!

@alexasteph The YouTuber VintageorTacky did swatch comparisons w/ Sweet Peach and Modern Renaissance. She was very thorough w/ her review.

Possibly a long shot but...I match to Nars Mont Blanc. Does anyone happen to own this, as well as KVD 42, or MUFE r210/220?  I'm trying to find my best match in other brands 😊 I bought KVD 44 but it seems a little dark. Thanks!

I don't own any of these, but you might have some luck in the Fair/Pale thread too:

I suspect that Nars Mont Blanc is more yellow and darker than R210 (if my recollection from trying out those shades is correct)

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

Here's all three of tatcha's lipstick next to each other; cherry blossom is very nude/peachy on my lips; it's nice, but not a must have. IMG_6372.PNGPlum blossom is my favorite. This is really the only lipstick I regret not having a back up of. I hope they bring it back.

@alexasteph sorry it took so long! I did the best I could, but you know how hard it is to swatch highlighters haha. Here is diamond dust compared to the other similar highlighters I have.

L to R: LG charming pink, diamond dust, becca amethyst, MAC soft frost, colourpop hippo

 

After looking at them all in the sunlight, diamond dust does seem to have the most shimmer and is very slightly less smooth than charming pink. I wouldn't say any are dupes for it in color.

@ShannonAlexis Thank you very much! It does look gorgeous doesn't it! That slight shift is everything. I may need to add this one to my collection then.

Could anyone compare NARS Impassioned and Benefit Dandelion blushes? I already have Impassioned and Temptalia lists Dandelion as a dupe.. but I can't really tell.

Does anyone have swatches of the new Becca Bali Sands bronzer?  It would be *amazing* if someone could swatch compare it to Too Faced Milk Chocolate Soleil or MJ Coconut Omega!

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

I have swatches of the MJ Coconut bronzer and Bali Sands (and a few others...) @Madeline7 Smiley Happy 

There are taken indoors, by a window. To me, the MJ bronzer looks more brown than Bali Sands.

Smiley Very Happy Smiley Very Happy Smiley Very Happy  thank you!!!  this is awesome @Asche!

 

Right now the only bronzer I own is the MJ one.  I love the texture but I wanted to try something lighter...is the glitter in the Becca one noticeable when worn?  

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

@Madeline7 I don't notice any glitter in Bali Sands at all! Even in the pan I barely see any glitter at all. It looks really soft and natural on my skin, definitely not shimmery/glittery. Smiley Happy

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

@Madeline7 I don't have Bali Sands but from swatches I've seen online it's lighter than both, but definitely closer to the Milk Chocolate. Here is temptalia's swatch of the coconut bronzer and Bali Sands.

Made a quick stop at Nordies to check out the new Guerlain Birthday Candle Meteorites and Baby glow touch Stick Luminizer. 

 

There wasn't an SA at the counter so I could not ask if the Stick is meant to be used under/over foundation, or if its kinda like a blush/highlight (depending what side of the stick used more I guess) since it sheers out quite a bit once blended out. The finish doesn't seem to be tacky just a satin like glow. The scent is just like the pearls. 6g of product iirc.

 

Still on the fence if I need this since I am not sure how it looks on my skin, I like the glow but the individual colours look kinda ashy..Hope this kinda helps I know a couple people asked if I get it or swatch it. @lachaton @twilightnicky

 

 

Not the best lighting but here are swatches:

 

Left/top is the stick swirled and swiped, rest are the 3 individual colors (pink, lilac, white).

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

So helpful, @Anewxa, thank you! I'm not sure how I'd use it yet. Hopefully I'll be able to swing by my counter and speak to the SA to see her thoughts Smiley Happy I like the colours of this stick, though.

Re: THE SWATCH REQUEST THREAD !

@lachaton I do like the swirled effect..but I want to know more about the product as well, on me it is most likely just going to be highlight..let me know if you swatch this/thoughts and what the SA's suggested usage is Smiley Happy

Some unsolicited swatches.

 

NUDESTIX Nudies all over face Colorado Matte. The formula is not powdery like Bite multisticks but a lot more creamy and glides on smoothly.
