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 **

I've mentioned before that I'm not a fan of Natasha Denona but I'm hoping these will help someone who may be interested. Sunset swatches posted previously, here are the Lila swatches

Thanks @ ElleEelleG. Love the color range on this pallette.

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

wait why aren't you a fan?

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

PSA...don’t trust the “live try on” feature in the Sephora app or at least keep in mind that it is providing a real general idea of how the product will actually look! I finally did a side by side photo comparison of the actual product vs. simulated one in the app. These pics show Pat McGrath mattetrance lipstick in OMI #107. As unflattering as the color looks in my photo with the real product I actually do like it with some liner on and applied more neatly. I just kind of slapped it on to see how far off the color was vs. the virtual try on. I’m interested in getting a new color from the line and don’t really feel like heading into the store to try it first so was happy to see the try on feature available for this line but it definitely adds some nonexistent warmth to the picture. I took both pics with the same lighting.

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

@bellinasf Wow, that's a big difference!  Is the top photo the virtual try on?

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

Yep the top is the virtual one @b3autygrl, totally different, right?!

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

Good to know @bellinasf !  I've never used that feature because I was afraid it'd be off.  Yet another reason this thread was needed.

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

@bellinasf  THe try on with their own models works a little bit better. I've definitely noticed discrepancies either way though!!!!

Thanks for the tip!

@howconne I think I tagged you wrong the first time. Please join.

@howconnie @KNC24 This thing is always messing up tags! 😉

Cross post from Bite thread. Picked up Quince and violet from the Weekly Wow sale. Loved them so much I ordered a third. I’m wearing Quince.

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

Beautiful! I love these too! @mermadelove

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

@ElleElleG @sister13 I am totally in love with these! And to think if it wasn’t for the week

ymwow I would never have tried them! I got Zinfandel today and while inappropriately named, it is a simply gorgeous warm coral! I will swatch it tomorrow. 

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

Very pretty, thanks for sharing!

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

@howconnie new thread you may want to join

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

@ElleElleG Thanks for starting this thread. I have been thinking about this topic. Hourglass lipstick MUA used during my makeover looks totally different in swatches or Sephora virtual artist (even on the medium skin tone model) than it is on me (probably because how pigmented lips are) and I wouldn’t have picked it up myself. That is when I realized that color products also can look totally different on WoC and not just complexion products.

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

@naturalooks15 I’m also having the same problem. Even with some of my swatches don’t look the same on my faces.

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

Absolutely @naturalooks15 !  I completely understand!  The number of times I've purchased a lipstick thinking it'll look the way it does in the tube or someone lighter only to get home and it look like I ate a powdered donut because my lips are pigmented, beyond frustrating.

 

Hoping this thread will help reduce some of that.  Glad to have you here!!

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

This right here is a never-ending problem for me... thank you @ElleElleG for curating this thread.
