It Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Matte Luxe Shadow Palette Swatches
  For all of you who might be interested, here are some swatches of this beautiful palette:   ( In natural light )   ( In artificial lighting )       ( In different kind of artificial lighting ( white ), not with the camera flash ) From left to right: Sheer Joy ( not really visible on my pale skin ), Soft Light, Warmth, Soulful, Mocha, Violet, Midnight, Noir, Love ( barely there ), Sunrise, Sunset, All Heart, Java and Iconic. Aaaand I forgot to swatch the transforming shade. I'll do it tomorrow. I have to take a photo of the swatches outside with natural light, anyway.   As you can see, the eye shadows are not what is considered to be true matte ( not in my book anyway ). They have subtle, barely there, sheen to them. They are so incredibly soft and buttery, very pigmented, they blend very easily, all in all very easy to work with, and they are simply gorgeous! Full review after I play around with them for awhile...   The packaging is kind of cheap looking. It's simply cardboard, with some plushy/velvety looking fabric on the outside. It's dirty pink. And I mean it really, really looks dirty. Not very appealing at all. But it's functional. It has a very strong magnet that keeps the palette securely closed. And it has a mirror inside. All in all, I don't like the packaging at all, except the strong magnet which I actually really like. But the thing is - I love the eye shadows so much, I don't even care about the packaging! But I have to say, I actually like this packaging way more than the packaging of TF Chocolate Bar palette which is a complete disaster! Now, THAT is a cheap stuff right there! Absolutely terrible!   And here they are, as promised - the swatches in natural light:         The long swatch all the way on the left side is Transforming Perl. I didn't swatch the shades with this transforming shade over them, because, honestly, I don't care about transforming this beautiful colors into something else. But if you'd like to see how the shades look "transformed", let me know. I'll swatch them for you

NEW Fresh Tinted lip treatment in TULIP SWATCH!
Hi everyone! I looked online EVERYWHERE for a swatch of the new exclusive (for vib and vib rouge) sugar fresh lip treatment in TULIP. I ended up just ordering it so here it is. It's beautiful for summer. The perfect pink. Also it lasts longer than any of the other lip treatments I have by them. Leaves a beautiful tint.

Color IQ
So who has tried the color IQ in stores & on-line?  http://www.sephora.com/IQ/color/ I heard people going into multiple stores & getting a different reading each time.  I just tried the on-line tool with a light neutral undertone shade & all my results were medium with pink or yellow undertones. I also don't understand why I only get a few results and then try another foundation and get different product results. Like if I plugged in a tinted moisturizer shade I wouldn't get any powder product results even though that's what I'm looking for.  Maybe if we post our results, they can somehow fix/improve it.  So please... Share your results.

OCC Lip Tar "Pretty Boy" swatch
Hey guys, I got my first lip tar the other day! I didn't see a page for swatches so figured I'd start one so people can start posting pictures (so many colors to choose from!)   This was my first time applying! It lasted the whole night and left my lips nicely stained in the morning.      This color is pretty bold for me, but I kind of love it!

Stila Angelfish - Search for a Dupe - Swatches
Like a number of others, I am quite taken with Stila Angelfish liner, but it is typically only available in a set and those sets seem to be harder to come by now.  So I purchased a few other Stila liners from the new 2014 spring line in hopes of a possible dupe - Sepia is not quite as pink but is closest out of this set .   Oh, I am also getting quite obsessed with burgundy, rust and garnet-like colors so I included the burgundy liner swatch.  Purdy!   Bigger version here: http://community.sephora.com/t5/image/serverpage/i mage-id/80233i6237088C22B56B50/image-size/original ...   Anyone have other brands of liners with something close to Angelfish?

Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil Swatches
So I am a bit obsessed with Urban Decay liners.    I especially love the browns, purples and greens for my green eyes, so with my most recent purchase of 1/3rd of the Urban Decay liner vault set (shared with the awesome gals Rikkie and Veronika), I wanted to swatch my full line-up of current UD liners.  A few are vintage or special edition from the Ocho Loco 2 set - I have marked them separately.   Probably my favorite go-to liners right now are Twice Baked or Corrupt for browns, Stash for green, Rockstar or Tornado for purple, plus I love doing slight highlighting accents with Goldmine or Dime.   The photo posted gets downsized a little, to see the full-sized version it is here:   http://community.sephora.com/t5/image/serverpage/i mage-id/61137i6B44A53CA52F49EF/image-size/original ...

MUFE HD Cream Blush in 510
As I promised, here are swatches and photos of MUFE HD Cream Blush in the shade 510! The shade is called "raspberry." It's a cool, berry-leaning red blush with a very natural finish. It pats on with a creamy texture and blends into a smooth, silky, skin like texture.   To achieve the color saturation seen on my cheeks (which is slightly less intense in pictures than it looks in real life), I patted and blended about two finger dips of product (per cheek) onto the apples of my cheeks, up toward the temples. So far I've been wearing it for three to four hours; no signs of fading at all, but I should hope not. I can update at the end of the day.   I hope anyone considering this color finds this helpful! 510, in my opinion, is the perfect reddish shade for an incredibly natural flush... even on fair skin tones. My husband commented that it looks indistinguishable from my natural flush. Amazing!

Urban Decay Naked 3 Blackheart Compared to Rockstar
Swatches really help me when I'm making purchase decisions so since I find the pinks and purples of the Naked 3 palette so appealing, I thought I would swatch the purples compared to existing Urban Decay products.   I have the Naked 3 eye shadow palette AND the Naked 3 double sided liner.  I swatched the purple liners I have: Tornado  (exclusive to Ocho Loco 2), Delinquent , Ether , then Rockstar with Blackheart (Naked 3) and Darkside (Naked 3) liners.   I also swatched the eye shadows Rockstar with Blackheart (Naked 3) and Darkside (Naked 3).   For me, Rockstar has been one of my top liner and shadow colors, and I LOVE the Blackheart and Darkside colors, both as liners and as shadows, from the new Naked 3 line.   Hope you find this information helpful!!  (BTW, I swatched Blackheart first because in the palette it looks light it would be lighter than Darkside, but obviously that is not the case with the shadows!!)

AMBIENT LIGHTING BLUSH: MOOD EXPOSURE SWATCH!
I just received my Sephora package in the mail! I only ordered Mood Exposure for now since I am pretty tan and was afraid the others would not show up. This blush is GORGEOUS! I have yet to test it out for an extended period of time, but it is beautiful! The swatch is pretty heavy, but on the cheeks it shows up more true to color. I would say it sort of reminds me of Tarte Blushing Bride? I apologize for the bad swatches!
