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!

 

Image result for shades of brown

 

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 **

@LoveMavin you should check this out

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

I saw this blush palette at my Sephora the other day and I fell in love with the colors. Sadly it was too dark on me, but I think it would be absolutely fabulous on deeper skin tones. The white shade in the corner is supposed to be a "transformer” type shade (it has a strong gold reflect in person). If any of you ladies see it in store you should definitely give it a try. https://www.sephora.com/product/contour-blush-spice-market-blush-palette-P427367?skuId=1961978&icid2...Smiley Tongue

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

Thanks, @makeitup305!

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

@makeitup305 This blush pallete does look like it will work for deeper skin tones. I like the varying shades and expect the pigmentation is there. Sephora collection generally has great products, just my personal opinion. Thanks for sharing! 

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

@IndyQT317 I agree. Sephora Collection has some true hidden gems.

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

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!!!! 

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

Thanks for the tip!
