The Deeper Hues Thread (Swatches, Color Matching, etc.)

*new group located here: Deeper Shades

 

Have a deeper hue and want to know how a product might look on your skin tone?  This is the place for you!

Several ladies expressed interest in having a BIC group dedicated to WOC.  Such a group would serve as a central reference point for swatches, color matching and the like, which can often be difficult to find.  While I have no idea whether such a group will ever be created I figured it would be nice to at least have a thread.

 

It should go without saying, but  **Ladies (and gents) of all hues are more than welcome **

Re: The Deeper Hues Thread (Swatches, Color Matching, etc.)

I avea athe Huda ELECTRIC palette and I love it! Thanks for swatching this!!!

Re: The Deeper Hues Thread (Swatches, Color Matching, etc.)

@mermadelove I have that as well but haven't used it yet.  What do you think of it?

Re: The Deeper Hues Thread (Swatches, Color Matching, etc.)

@ElleElleG. Gosh I just saw my horrible typing from earlier. Sorry about the migraine brain! I love all the Huda palettes I have. The electric is pretty fun. I bought it for the vibrant yellow but it looks way more mustard than paintbox unless I put a white base underneath. Then it really pops! Either way it’s gorgeous, pigmented and smooooooth. I love that about a Huda. That and the legitimately effortless blending!

Re: The Deeper Hues Thread (Swatches, Color Matching, etc.)

LOL @mermadelove I knew what you meant!  Thanks for sharing your thoughts, I may check out some of her other eyeshadows in the future.

Re: The Deeper Hues Thread (Swatches, Color Matching, etc.)

Thanks @Mena πŸ’•

Re: The Deeper Hues Thread (Swatches, Color Matching, etc.)

This is great @ElleElleG!  I was thinking of doing some lip swatches. I have a hard time finding lip swatches on very pigmented lips (which I have).  And I was thinking of doing some as it may be helpful to some.  I'll be adding them to this thread.  

Re: The Deeper Hues Thread (Swatches, Color Matching, etc.)

@ElleElleG@b3autygrl I’ve got one pink lip and one brown lip. Unless a lippie is very pigmented, I always end up with unintentional ombrΓ¨!

Re: The Deeper Hues Thread (Swatches, Color Matching, etc.)

Yes please @b3autygrl!!! I also have pigmented lips so definitely looking forward to your swatches!!

@ope590 I thought of you when @ElleElleG made this thread.

This is the Fenty uncensored

@KNC24 Uncensored is beautiful. Definitely a statement sh...

@KNC24 Uncensored is beautiful. Definitely a statement shade. It's a bold red for me and I learned how to apply lighter so it's work appropriate. Did you purchase it?

Re: @KNC24 Uncensored is beautiful. Definitely a statement sh...

@IndyQT317 no I didn’t. Still trying to figure out how to make colors work for me. 

Re: RE: The Deeper Hues Thread (Swatches, Color Matching, etc.)

😍  Can't believe I still don't have this beauty!  Thanks for the swatch @KNC24

RE: Re: RE: The Deeper Hues Thread (Swatches, Color Matching, etc.)

@ElleElleG I still getting use to color outside of nude for my skin.

Re: RE: Re: RE: The Deeper Hues Thread (Swatches, Color Matching, etc.)

Accentuate the melanin!  I will say initially I felt a bit self conscious about wearing color on the lips but now I love it @KNC24 !  I think the deep fall/vampy shades are what sealed the deal for me.
